Randall Munroe Reports Android Bugs 

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Randall Munroe writes and draws one of the best web comics out there, XKCD. If you’re not reading XKCD, you’re missing out.

Randall also has the occasional blog post. In the linked post, he provides a partial list of bugs in Android (or associated software) which have impacted his actual life in some way. You should check out the whole list, but here are a couple of my favorites.

Sometimes, when arranging home screen icons, you feel sad and you’re not sure why.
Google Voice doesn’t do push notifications, so you often get voicemails quite some time after the caller leaves them, sometimes after you’ve already called them back. This can make you call your doctor back again and have a really confusing conversation where you accidentally get a second prescription. Which you can then get filled and sell on the street. Come to think of it, this bug might be a feature.
