Google search suggestions can be quite interesting. I’ve seen people post similar screenshots in the past and one morning, before I got out of bed, I came up with the idea to see what “Why do…” would show. I used an incognito window so the results wouldn’t be influenced by my Google account.
The woman working the register said she had just put them out and there was actually a 3rd copy that was coming apart so she was going to glue it back together.
At $15 for a magazine, I don’t think you can really call this a “free” kit, but it’s still a good value. I don’t think I’ve ever “unboxed” a magazine before…
This will be neat to mess around with. I’ve thought about turning one of my Pis into an Alexa type device to put in my office or bedroom and could easily do it now. If you have any project ideas involving voice, let me know.
It’s quick and easy, but once in a while you’ll run into a currency where this doesn’t return enough precision, compared to the value you get when using Google’s currency converter. Even worse, today it was giving me a bunch of data that was quite different from what Google Finance showed for the current and historical data.
I’ve been a Firefox user for a long time, but it’s time to throw in the towel. The most common issue I run into is video playback not even starting, but overall the entire browser experience seems to be getting slower. I also run into development issues at work where team members uncover a Chrome bug, where Firefox works fine and as I’d expect it to. Yeah, I know, I should get better at testing. 😉 One recent example is the default behavior in Chrome is to allow a form to be submitted multiple times; double-click the submit button or even keep smashing it and Chrome will send as many requests until your page reloads. Am I the only one who thinks this behavior is really dumb? Firefox doesn’t do this.
The long holiday weekend seems like a good time to make the switch. I looked back to see the first time I mentioned FF on my blog. It was more than 12 years ago, where I mentioned testing in FF and IE6! Times have changed.
