There are two main routes to get from the Vegas airport to the Strip. One of them is illegal. To figure out which one you’re on, apply this test: Look outside. If you can’t find outside, you’re in a tunnel—which means you’re being ripped off. ~ Uber.gov — Medium.
It’s no secret that Feedburner is going away pretty soon. What would happen if you lose all your Feedburner subscribers? Don’t wait for a Google “Spring Cleaning” announcement, migrate right now. ~ FeedPress
I was looking for a syndication solution for this site, and FeedPress was exactly what I was looking for. It’s the modern successor to Feedburner.

Here’s a fabulous implementation of a Drag & Drop one-page website builder for WordPress. I encourage you to try out the demo: Enter your email, and you’ll be playing with the theme in the amount of time it takes to check your inbox.
Things I love about this theme: Edit your site via the frontend for a true WYSIWYG experience, intuitive controls, clean design elements, and flexibility for adding your own layout and design elements.
For some good reasons, I found myself needing to learn AngularJS…. fast. I decided to document this down so that this will serve as a good refresher for myself or a point-blank “getting started” for other developers.

The above animated GIF (click the graphic for a fullsize view) shows a “click to reveal” button I created using jQuery. The effect is reusable throughout the website’s theme by simply adding
.reveal to the parent row.
The Re/code blog has decided to drop comments in favor of discussions happening elsewhere:
The biggest change for some of you, however, will be that we have decided to remove the commenting function from the site. We thought about this decision long and hard, since we do value reader opinion. But we concluded that, as social media has continued its robust growth, the bulk of discussion of our stories is increasingly taking place there, making onsite comments less and less used and less and less useful. ~ A Note to Re/code Readers | Re/code.
I like the look of Firehost Chat. Consider these features: great looking Mac, iOS, and Android apps, push notifications, and premium features for one monthly price (i.e. unlimited agents).
Screeny is a utility app that helps you save space consumed by screenshots. It screens your camera roll and helps you to filter and delete screenshots that are no longer necessary. ~ App Store.
If you’re using the InfiniteWP WordPress Client plugin to manage your website, now is a good time to update. While doing a routine audit of our Website Firewall product, we discovered a vulnerability in the plugin that could be used by a malicious individual to 1) disable a users web site by putting it in maintenance mode and 2) allows the user to control the content of the maintenance page. via Sucuri Blog.
Computers at Google now have a machine-learning system that can analyze images like the one above and generate captions for them. The phrase used to caption this image? “A person riding a motorcycle on a dirt road.” It might not seem like much, but it’s actually one hell of an accomplishment. via Computers Wrote the Caption for This Photograph, and Changed Everything

For many decades, a fantasy among space enthusiasts has been to invent a device that produces a net thrust in one direction, without any need for reaction mass. Of course, a reactionless space drive of this type is impossible. Or is it? ~ Boing Boing.
