iCloud Photo Stream annoyances - adding to Dave Caolo (@52tiger)'s comments.

That’s fast and convenient, but also a hindrance. Specifically, my iPhone, iPad and Mac are now cluttered with space-hogging one-offs I shot for the sake of a tweet or a Facebook update. 1 What’s worse is that you can’t delete such throw-away photos from your Photo Stream with an iDevice. Instead, you’ve got to visit icloud.com and click “Reset Photo Stream,” which nukes the lot, good and bad.  That’s why I’ve started using Camera+ again for tweeting pictures.

As Dave Caolo mentions above, regardless what you shoot, it will end up in your Photo Stream. Apart from the random twitpics, also the screenshots you may capture to show a bug, feature or just your favorite homescreen layout.

But there's a bigger hindrance. Not so much with the Photo Stream itself as with iPhoto.

use case:
my wife, my two kids and myself all have iDevices and we all have our own iCloud account (MobileMe Family but that's defunct now).
We have one computer that has our iTunes collection of music, movies, TV shows and apps. And I would like to use that same computer to collect all Photo Stream content.

However, iPhoto only connects to one single Photo Stream. You just "enable" Photo Stream, and it will use the one that is currently active on your computer. There is (afaik) no option to import other Photo Streams.

This makes the whole feature a lot less interesting and useful.

Galaxy Nexus with Ice Cream Sandwich -- sigh

As to overall performance, we saw a good deal of stutter in the Galaxy Nexus before us. Taps were not always recognized and there were occasional delays in performing an instruction, though in Google’s defense, it was a phone fully loaded with running tasks and the software is being continually improved and optimized (i.e. it’s not yet fully baked). That having been said, it unfortunately remains the case that Android isn’t as swift and responsive as iOS or Windows Phone (or even MeeGo Harmattan on the N9). Or at least it wasn’t on the demo phone we got a look at. The subtle, pervasive lag that has characterized the Android UI since it inception is still there, which is not a heartening thing to hear when you’re talking about a super-powered dual-core device like the Galaxy Nexus.

Maybe instead of cramming the device with rarely used gimmicks you should fix the basics first, no?

How to use the iOS5 keyboard shortcuts to create different email signatures

Even though Apple has released a lot of improvements in iOS5, there is still only one signature that is used for all email accounts. The default signature is "Sent from my iPhone" or "Sent from my iPad", however, in many cases you'd like to have your contact info in it.

And if you're like me, you have both your private and work email accounts configured on the device.

But there's only one signature! So, what do you do? Most will just leave it at the default. I thought that with the introduction of the keyboard shortcuts, it should be quite easy to add a separate signature for each email account. It's still not ideal, but it works.

First off, I changed the default signature to only include the signature escape and my name. For those not familiar with signature escape and (vintage) maillist systems, that is usually dash-dash-space. Most older maillist systems used to ignore everything past "-- " so I made a habit of including this in every signature. Currently most systems are more intelligent and will see the signature automagically so there's no real need for this.

Anyway, the first step:

EU-commissaris Kroes betreurt besluit over netneutraliteit - RTL Z

"We moeten handelen op basis van feiten, niet emotie; snel en zonder nadenken ingrijpen kan tegen-productief zijn. Bijvoorbeeld, van aanbieders verlangen alleen 'volledig internet' aan te bieden, kan innovatieve nieuwe diensten in de kiem smoren. Of erger zelfs, het kan hogere prijzen betekenen voor klanten met minder veeleisende behoeften hebben die bereid zijn een goedkoper, beperkter, pakket te kiezen", aldus Kroes, wijzend op de wetswijziging waarmee de Tweede Kamer deze zomer akkoord ging.
