Google Makes It Easier Than Ever To Unsubscribe From Unwanted Emails by @mattsouthern

Today, Google announced a new feature for Gmail that will make it easier than ever to unsubscribe from unwanted emails. Now, instead of scrolling to the bottom to find an unsubscribe button, Gmail will surface the unsubscribe button right next to the sender’s email address. Email is a handy way to get updates from your favorite brands, social networks, discussion boards and more. But sometimes you end up subscribed to lists that are no longer relevant to you, and combing through an entire message looking for a way to unsubscribe is no fun.  This feature won’t work for all email […]

Facebook Makes Messenger Mandatory

Facebook’s plan to monetize Messenger through payments just got one step closer to reality. Now users who want to keep messaging their Facebook friends will be forced to download the standalone Messenger app.

In the next few days, Facebook will fade out the messaging option from its main iPhone and Android apps. Now users worldwide will experience what European Facebook users underwent in April, where Facebook first tested a standalone app for messaging.

The social network hasn’t exactly been subtle about its plans to monetize the messaging function. In June, the company snagged PayPal President David Marcus to oversee Messenger, and clearly expected Marcus to use his payments expertise.

Messenger hit 200 million active users and people now send 12 billion messages a day, Facebook said in a statement. It’s unclear so far how this would be monetized, but in the 2014 second quarter conference, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that “over time there will be some overlap between [Messenger] and payments.”

The move is similar to FourSquare’s corralling of some of its app’s functions into an exclusively check-in app Swarm. However, as tech companies continue to split up their apps into increasingly specific categories, the question that remains is whether users will be content to have multiple Facebook and Foursquare apps on their phones.

Why Python Makes A Great First Programming Language

Python is now the most popular introductory language at American colleges, a recent Association for Computing Machinery study reports.

In an analysis of the top 39 computer science departments as ranked by U.S. News in 2014, the general-purpose programming language has replaced Java as the budding computer scientist’s first exposure to writing code. Eight of the top 10 CS departments (80%), and 27 of the top 39 (69%), teach Python in their introductory courses.

Invented 23 years ago, Python’s discovery as a great tool for first-timers has been more recent. The beginner-oriented Raspberry Pi has certainly influenced Python’s new role as a teaching tool, but also its increasing adoption at organizations like Google, Yahoo and NASA that make it valuable to know even after a programmer is no longer a beginner. In modern times, it has routinely been ranked as one of the eight most popular programming languages since 2008.

Perhaps not so coincidentally, Python is my first programming language, too. I’m halfway through Zed Shaw’s Learn Python The Hard Way on my road to mastery. And in this liberal arts student’s studies, I’ve noted a few key characteristics that make Python easy to grasp.

Here are some of the reasons Python makes a great first programming language.

Very Minimal Setup

To show you just how easy it is to get started with Python, let’s literally get started with Python.

On a Mac, find your Terminal program and open it. On a PC, find the PowerShell program and open that. It’ll be a blank box where you can write in text prompts.

Do that now. Write in the word “python” and hit Enter. You should see something like this:

If you don’t see that and instead see the words “python is not recognized” or something similar, you need to download Python, Python 2 to be exact, and try again.

Either way, it only takes a single word to get your computer to run Python. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.

It’s Written In Plain English

Python is so easy that we’re going to write our first Python program right now.

If you’re still running Python from the last section, type CTRL-Z on a Mac or “quit” on a PC to exit.

Now create a new blank Python file using Nano, a basic command line text editor. All you have to do is give it any name and end it with the suffix “.py” so your computer understands it is a program intended to be read by Python. The “nano” prompt simply opens it in Nano.

This is the most basic Python program you can write, a command that simply prints the words “Hello world” on your computer screen. Compare it to Java and C’s “Hello World” programs, which are each several lines long. There’s no weird syntax, no cryptic variables. Anybody can look at this one line and figure out what it does.

Save, and then run the file with the “python” command. It’ll print your program:

Errors Appear On Runtime

When you’re learning something for the first time, you’re inevitably going to make mistakes. Python makes it easy to identify and fix these mistakes immediately. That’s because Python displays errors at run time, instead of simply failing to compile the program.

Open up, the program we just wrote before and intentionally make an error. Here, I’ve omitted a necessary quotation mark.

When I try to run the program, Python tries to point out where I went wrong:

Instead of displaying a blank screen where your program should have been, Python will run your buggy program and try to help you troubleshoot it.

Shallow Learning Curve

I began coding Python last week with the program above. A few days later, I’ve programmed my own basic text editor and calculator using Python.

Because Python has so little overhead and excess code, it becomes easy to grasp continually more difficult concepts since they mimic English sentence structure we’ve seen before.

We just built the most basic program possible. But even just knowing what you know about Python now, I bet you can take a guess as to what the following program does:

I’ll run this program using the Python command.

Sure enough, it lists how many students and teachers there are, and does a basic division problem for us. Did you guess correctly?

For the reasons above and many more that more experienced Python programmers can explain better than I, Python makes a great first programming language, especially if you don’t really consider yourself the math and science type. It’s really no surprise that American universities have come to the same conclusion.

How Chromecast Makes Shared Viewing Easier: Bat Squeaks

Using the Chromecast with friends is about to get better, thanks to this handy update: Google announced at its Google I/O developer conference that users will no longer have to join the same network, just to cast videos and music to Chromecast-connected TVs. 

What Google didn’t announce, at least on stage, was how that was going to work. Turns out, mobile devices will be able to link to Chromecast via ultrasonic signals undetectable to the naked human ear—not too different from the high-pitched signals bats use for echolocation.

The idea is to make shared Chromecast experiences among several users in a room easier. So Chromecast engineers focused on trying to eliminate the need for friends to type in sometimes complex passwords just to join the host’s Wi-Fi network. 

Ultrasonic pairing will work, even if the phone is on a cellular connection. Here’s how: Chromecast users first configure their devices to connect with devices that are in close proximity. Then friends use Netflix, YouTube or another Cast-enabled app to request Chromecast access, prompting the TV dongle to emit distinct ultrasonic audio. The mobile detects that and pairs with the Chromecast. If it fails, users can also type in a PIN code that pops up on screen. 

GigaOm notes that ultrasonic networking was the brainchild of Google engineer Boris Smus, whose Web app project used it for messaging and pairing last year. 

In related Chromecast news, it appears that YouTube won’t be hogging TV Queue anymore. Other apps will get the ability to support this handy feature, which lets multiple people add videos to a single viewing queue.
