Episode 58: Quick Settings

Chet, Jason, and Tor, not necessarily in that order.
You can see, in the background, the beautifully appointed
 high-tech recording studio where the magic happens.
In this episode, Chet and Tor talk with Jason Monk from the System UI team about various things that he's worked on, including Quick Settings, Quick Settings tiles (and the API for creating them), and System UI Tuner.
Oh, and QQS (Quick Quick Settings). Because if Quick is good, Quick Quick must be better.

There's also an odd detour into color theory and pointillism. Sorry about that.

Quotes of note:
"My memory doesn't work that way."
"Just because you have power doesn't mean you should use it."
