For such an inherently social experience, it's relatively solitary, despite people having the ability to comment on one another's pins.

The terminal look is one such perfect example. Because of its text-based nature, it can replace any graphical interface with more information in a less obvious manner. And it looks cool doing so.
One last app came rolling in at the tail end of update Wednesday. This time, we've got a relatively small update to Android Device Manager, Google's answer for lost or stolen phones.

Do you remember going to the arcade as a kid (... or an adult) and playing Crazy Taxi? The awesome soundtrack, the absurd physics? The almost unbelievable number of taxi drivers with unbuttoned shirts? Those were the good old days, and you paid for them - maybe $0.50 a pop for a ride in the Crazy Taxi seat.

Managing your Dropbox space on Windows or Mac isn't a terribly difficult affair - the platforms have tons of 3rd party disk usage analysis utilities and management tools that will happily do all sorts of things to keep your usage in check.
