Call off the pest control, most of you are bug-free

Is it time to call the exterminator?

What you need to know

  • This weekend, we polled our readers to see if they've been experiencing any of the recently reported Android bugs.
  • Over 50% reported that they'd had no unusual problems or glitches.
  • However, nearly 45% said that they had been having bug problems.

Over the holiday weekend, we asked our readers if they'd been experiencing any problems, issues, or bugs with their version of Android; be that the beta of Android 12 or whatever their Android phone happens to be running right now. Some of these included an issue with RCS messages not sending properly, while others included a strange alarm clock bug.

54.7% of our readers said that they hadn't noticed anything wrong on their phones or in their apps, which is a plurality of the respondents. However, nearly as many readers reported bug issues of some sort or another. Over 11% said they'd been having issues with the recent RCS bug, while 7% had experienced a problem with the alarm clock bug. A whopping 27% told us that they'd simply had too many bugs to keep track of recently — that's not a good number.

Some of our followers didn't realize the bugs that were affecting them were widespread. When reader dangerousfen discovered that their alarm wasn't going off, they said they "thought it was something I had done until I read this article."

Our readers reported more other frustrating bugs than the alarm issue. For example, reader smabney said that their "Pixel 3XL has started with a "System UI not responding," which comes at the same time as a wifi drop. Rebooting gets me back in business, but the problem comes back in a day or two. If I'm using a dark screen, I also see a pop-up message that flashes too quick to read but looks like the System UI message shape."

Our poll is closed now, but we'd still love to hear from you. Have you been experiencing an unusual number of Android bugs recently?

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
