Sometimes it is better to describe a set by its elements, rather than by its constraints.
The Los Angeles parking sign revolution has been a long time coming. Last October, the LA City Council voted to try out new, less tell-y/more show-y markers somewhere in...

...it's depressing how many I've had. My favorite has to be the rendition of the receptionist: they called my line and asked for me then were so confused and/or startled by the fact that they didn't get a receptionist (all of our lives are direct) that they hung up.

Faster phone calls in Google Hangouts

Calling from desktop just got better. We're excited to announce: 

* Faster call connections right inside of Gmail and Inbox
* Quicker call answering for incoming Google Voice calls

Start a phone call by clicking the phone tab in Gmail, or by searching for a phone number in Hangouts. You can also try this in the Hangouts Chrome App: http://goo.gl/FujGNb

Look for these updates as we roll them out over the next few days!
