I wonder whether the traditional demarcation between "consumption" and "productivity" devices is accurate. What if the real difference is between people who can afford to own multiple devices versus people who can only afford one device? #

Google Shuts Out Competitors on Android? Hardly - The New York Times. I think it's clear the EU does not like Google, the antitrust claims it is making about Android is ridiculous. #

I would hide 4 U: what’s in Prince’s secret vault? "“I think over 70% of the music we’ve worked on for Prince is yet to come out,” Fischer says. “There are a lot of songs that were sent to us clearly with the idea that they would never be released. " #

When will evangelicals realize that every Republican candidate since Reagan has been using you? They say what they think you want to hear, but don't really believe what they say nor intend to do anything they promise. At best they use religion in the Constantine tradition rather than follow Jesus. Trump is no different!#

How big is it that Dexter Fowler is back with the Cubs? He is batting .583 at the moment and is an excellent leadoff hitter. #

The Cubs had 10 walks and more than 10 runs last night, a feat they only did once in 2015.

It will be good for them to come to Wrigley several games above .500. #
