LLVM Clang 3.7 vs. GCC Compiler Benchmarks On Linux
Originally I was also going to feature some OpenMP benchmarks in this compiler comparison since LLVM/Clang 3.7 now has OpenMP 3.1 support, but with these tests and using the latest LLVM OpenMP library, I was still running into some issues even when setting the appropriate compiler flag. I'm still investigating the issue so for now all of the tests in this article are not using OpenMP.
As a side note, daily LLVM/Clang SVN benchmarks using the daily LLVM APT snapshot repository continue to be done in a fully-automated manner each morning on multiple systems over at LinuxBenchmarking.com.

Pro tip: Find business phone numbers faster in Android Lollipop
Say you're in a hurry to phone a local business to either order a pizza, find out their hours, reserve a table... or whatever reason you might need quick access to that business's front desk. In the old days of Android KitKat, you'd have to do a search for the business from Chrome (or Google Now), locate a phone number listed for the business, and then tap the associated number to place the call. Android Lollipop has made that process quite a bit more efficient.
