It's Not Developers Slowing Things Down, It's the Process

jcfandino Re:Agile is supposed to fix these things (186 comments)

You're attacking the problem by over engineering the solution.
That's usually a bad idea, against the KISS principle and the "do the least amount of work to complete the feature" rule.
If the BAs were right, you'd end up with bunch of complex unnecessary code to test and maintain and you'd be running against the schedule for no reason.

It's Not Developers Slowing Things Down, It's the Process

jcfandino Re:Nope... Nailed It (186 comments)

Rock star performance is achievable by anyone who gets to focus on just one thing at a time. It's also called being a prima donna, not a rock star.

Will the Google Car Turn Out To Be the Apple Newton of Automobiles?

jcfandino Re:How hard is it to recognize a stoplight? (287 comments)

I think the real goal would be to have all vehicles self-drive; then they can be coordinated to interlace at intersections, removing the need for stop lights and saving a ton of fuel!

However there are people that don't have cars and need to walk. Will the car overlords consider allowing us mere pedestrians to cross the street?

Google Hangouts Gets Google Voice Integration And Free VoIP Calls

jcfandino Re:Hangouts is, in turn, part of plus, right? (162 comments)

I use the hangouts app and it doesn't allow me to send pictures because I don't have a google plus account.
I wouldn't be suprised if the Voice features were restricted as well.

I think it'd be adding fuel to the fire.
Lawyers would be the only benefited by that, but it's always nice to see the bully beaten at his own game.
