Why Apple, Google, and FB Have Their Own Programming Languages

Yep, this. It all boils down to a really smart guy who's still trying to get respect by proving how big his academic dick is.

Android 5.0 Makes SD Cards Great Again

dubbayu_d_40 My biggest problem with Android SD (214 comments)

Is that manufacturers can have multiple "external" sd cards even though only one is removable (my Moto for example).

So when a user with one of these phones wants to get a new phone, they are practically forced to use phone mfg/service provider for transferring data to a new phone.

The conspiracy theorist in me thinks this is all about lock-in.

I hate all the edge case code I have to maintain to choose the correct "external" storage.

Has this been addressed?

Boo! The House Majority PAC Is Watching You

dubbayu_d_40 Re:Jonathan Coulton Tweeted about getting one. (468 comments)

That's probably because you are a conservative. As a liberal, I often get mailers pretending to be from the democratic party telling me to vote for conservative candidates and props.

If you were a liberal in Kentucky, you might have even gotten one of these: http://talkingpointsmemo.com/d...

Four Weeks Without Soap Or Shampoo

dubbayu_d_40 I beg to disagree (250 comments)

I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy I'll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.

Right on. I see guys like this loose their shit all the time because they think they're programmers, but unfortunately have limits when dealing with complexity. Oh wait...
