Now that's exciting!
 
Holy shit. The previous Google+ homepage was 22MB. The new version is 327KB. That's amazing.

I remember Facebook made huge announcements about their news feed being much smaller, being better for developing nations. I guess Google+ now fits that bill too, but they won't try to sing it from the heavens as the next gospel.

I love Google photos, it generally does a really good job. Except one time... it made a panorama out of two images of the same car. I was very confused.

Been testing this one out as well and I'm glad it's finally seeing the light of day. :)
 
Adobe Premiere Clip brings easy video editing to Android

I've been beta testing this app for a while now and I have to say, it's pretty amazing what can be done on your smartphone. Android had been lacking a good movie editor for a while, IMO, at least until now. Yes, others do exist, but I feel Adobe's offering is superior.

Cc +Scott Anderson​​
While the dreams of getting something as robust as the desktop version of Adobe Premiere to edit videos on your phone may be a bit outside the realm of possibility, Adobe has introduced the next best thing. Adobe Premiere Clip is now available for Android after a brief exclusive stint on iOS.

Excellent appetizers and drinks. The service was pretty slow though and it was tough to get a good seat, you may want to make a reservation. Nice for business meetings too because there are dividers up around the seating to block some noise.

One of my favorite cheap and easy taquerias in the city. Simple, no frills Mexican food that feels more or less authentic. Great location right next to BART too. My favorite is the chip burrito and make sure you try the mango salsa too!
