Infinite Undo: Falsehoods programmers believe about time →


Over the past couple of years I have spent a lot of time debugging other engineers’ test code. This was interesting work, occasionally frustrating but always informative. One might not immediately think that test code would have bugs, but of course all code has bugs and tests are no exception.

Reel Rock 7 Blog: The Big Deal - Behind the Camera at Honnold's Triple Crown →


As a creaky 38-year old, I daydream of reincarnation in the form of Lebron on a 50-point playoff night, or Messi scoring 5 goals in a Champions league battle. But no vision comes close to Alex Honnold soloing 7,000 vertical feet of the sheerest, most exposed rock on earth in an 18-hour period,…

7.1 Percent In 7 Months or how Android is taking over the world →


The results are in, as of June 1, Android 4.0 (aka Ice Cream Sandwich) now has 7.1% of the Android market. Two months ago, the OS had just 2.9%, so this is progress. But that’s 7% in 7 months. There’s no spin you can put on this: it’s pathetic.

The race continues to be on for Ice Cream Sandwich to get to 10% penetration before Android 5.0 (aka Jellybean) is announced, presumably at Google I/O at the end of the month. It’s not looking good.

65% of Android users are still using some variation of Android 2.3 — and that number is actually still growing.

Google will announce the next version of their OS before 10% of their users are on the last version. Think about how insane that is for a second.
