How to detect your android device on Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty x32

To detect your Android Dev phone on ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty, x32), do the following:

1. cd /etc/udev/rules.d/

2.a. if you have a file named 50-android.rules, then do:
mv 50-android.rules 51-android.rules

2.b. if you don't have the file, do the following:
vi 51-android.rules (note: it will create a new file)
In this file, add the following:

UBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666"

3. Unplug and plug again your device, then type:
adb devices

and you should see something like:
List of devices attached
HT...... device

Chrome dev tools - secret weapon?

When I started working back in 2010, we used to support IE7. I still remember how much of a paint it was to debug javascript code. With IE8/IE9 debuggers, what I learned is patience, rather than figuring out how to fix all those weird bugs that *always show up *only in IE. The debuggers were so slow. Also back then, firebug was the norm. Chrome dev tools was relatively new and most people I knew did not use it. I liked Chrome so I sticked with it. Now, it's a tool that I use almost every day. In fact, I try to spend some time and follow what's new with the dev tools. I also spend some time experimenting with soon to be features/apis on Chrome Canary. This year, well last year... (2016), I've been pretty busy and haven't had much time to look at the new features. But today, I spent a few hours catching up on the last Google I/O and watch what's new with the dev tools. I wanted to share this link and give back some love to the chrome dev tools by writing this post.
