These are major strives forward to better protect the community against fraudulent software submitted to the Play Store and any content that may be inappropriate for certain age groups. Previously, Google relied on fully automated systems to approve apps and games submitted by developers.

Adventures in 3D Printing — dealing with failure

32
Failed prints

3D Printing is a ton of fun, but the learning curve with this technology means you're going to have a lot of failures early on. And later on. There's a lot of failure in your future.

For the last week, I have been fortunate enough to mess around with the Ultimaker 2 3D Printer. Having a 3D Printer 10 feet from your desk is an incredible experience, and the list of things I want to print is growing way faster than the list of completed projects. Complicated prints with this device can get upwards of 30 hours pretty quickly, but the end result is so worth it. I've made accessories for phones that I am really happy with, organization tools for the house that look nice, and little things for my kids to play with. I've been excited about 3D Printers for a while, but the feeling of satisfaction as the build plate sinks to the base of the structure so you can grab the finished print was something I wasn't really expecting.

There's another feeling I wasn't expecting in this 3D Printing adventure, and that's the whole-body cringe when I realize something has gone horribly wrong and my print has failed. I've had quite a few of those already, so it seemed right to share those experience as well.

How Google+ affects your Google account

28

Google has taken your data out of the individual silos you signed up for and created something bigger, but it's up to you to decide if that's good or bad.

When the service first launched, Google+ was described by its creators as a social layer for all of Google's products. This meant you could invite people to a document from Google Drive, check your notifications from Google Play Music, and effortlessly invite anyone with a Google account to a Hangout for anything from a quick friendly chat to a serious meeting. This plan has been scaled back a bit since its inception, as it turned out not everyone wanted every Google product connected to a highly personal social network, but there are still plenty of ways in which your Google+ account can affect your Google Account.

The good news is most of these things are actually quite helpful. The bad news is some of these things can't really be turned off.

Adobe gets its docs ducks in a row with Document Cloud

Adobe Acrobat DC

Acrobat DC apps for Android and iOS (and with easy syncing for Windows access)

Adobe may have invented the portable document format — that'd the venerable PDF, boys and girls — but for whatever reason its "Acrobat" suite never really had much to do with consumers, and even for biz types it often was easier just to print, sign, scan and send. That ends today with the announcement of Document Cloud, which brings forth Google Drive-like syncing capabilities and the mobile document power we've seen from Samsung.

What gives the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge an 'edge' over the regular S6?

72

What do you get with that higher price tag on the Galaxy S6 edge, and is it worth it?

Samsung is making some bold moves this year, and the Galaxy S6 line of devices is unlikely to be the only place we see such sweeping changes. Both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge represent not only a new hardware design language, but a refined software experience that most of us here are more than a little excited to spend some extra time with. One of the big questions we've seen in the forums about these two devices has a lot to do with Samsung justifying the existence of the Galaxy S6 edge. Specifically, why someone would choose to spend more money on a pair of curved edges and what the benefits to those curves actually are.

It's a question Samsung will undoubtedly be spending quite a bit in the way of marketing dollars to explain soon, but the bottom line with the Galaxy S6 edge is style and convenience. As long as those are things that matter to you, the Galaxy S6 edge is likely calling your name right now.
