The sheer number of modules available in Node can overwhelm you at times. Think of any utility, small or large, there must exist a module on Github.

It’s been that kind of day today.

Math is math, why would they change math?”

Gosh, this Incredibles 2 Trailer is awesome. Just can’t wait for this movie to release.

I am reading posts mentioning Apple should have caught rings problem in QA. However I have a genuine question. Is it a valid test case to check effects of a hardware product involving materials against every material surface possible? Is it not a stretch?

Notifications were barging into my life very frequently, throughout the day. And night. I had to take control of this. And I have been extremely aggressive on deciding who deserves that privilege. Some thoughts.

Google details how Chrome’s optional ad blocking, which goes live tomorrow, will work: which kinds of ads will trigger it, how Chrome will notify users, more”

It’s naive of Google to believe no will think it is intentional on Google’s part.

Biggest shortcomings of humanity come to fore when we stop appreciating others’ and their time’s worth. I see the behaviour play out way too often, in form of carelessness towards rules or towards ones who are following them.

A cause most often? Entitlement to frivolous stuff.

AMP for Email →

Because AMP for Email is an open spec, we look forward to seeing how other email clients will adopt it, too.

Won’t it be available only on gmail, supported only by Chrome? Is it open in the same way as AMP? Or is it another attempt to break the last open system?

I watched the first season of Black Mirror completely. It took me at least a couple of days to get over the gloomy mood clouding my mind. It’s kept me away from the second season.

It is too dark for my liking, the real world as-is is no cheery place any longer.

I am surprised at the sheer scale of insider information that Gurman has managed to scoop. Especially so given that it is all software. That is one thing that is difficult to get out of Apple.

Information is too specific and too detailed to be just some hints floating around.
