top 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.
top Android 5.0 Makes SD Cards Great Again
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?

top Four Weeks Without Soap Or Shampoo
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.
