RIP Leonard Nimoy. You inspired a generation.
Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los ...

Hi Amit, I really hope you don't mind me commenting like this here, but I have to let you know what your Collections fans have been up to.

Collections are a great feature, and after having authored a few myself, I came to realize  they were not that easy to find in a search.

With that in mind, I came up with the idea of creating a Community which would allow members to share their own Collections, and those of others. And to include a whole new approach to moderation too.

We have created categories where the Collections can be added and found easily by our viewers and members. We allow and recommend hashtags be used in the comment box when sharing with us, to make it easier for the Collection to be found when using the communities search box.

I have to admit, it wasn't easy at first to convince members how important it was for a community such as ours. A collection of Collections if you like, but much more.

But, and after explaining the importance and viewer friendliness of our community, we soon started picking up speed. Granted, we are small in numbers compared to a photo sharing community, but we are extremely high in quality Collections, popular well known members, and have only been going just a few weeks.

We are at this time only just over 500 members strong, but we do share over 400 of our members Collections. That is a great ratio in any community books.

We are doing what we can to promote Collections here, and would appreciate any help and advice you can offer. Maybe you could post Collection update information to our community directly, as you get it. Or offer advice to our members and I?

In the meantime, please take a look at our Community, as I am sure you will be impressed.

https://plus.google.com/communities/101885389612190759002

Kind regards and best wishes.
Steve

I guess they should have used the iScrub product from Esquire Innovations, since that is also the source of the document templates.

How the world searched in 2014.
 
This year people searched for everything under the sun and beyond,  from distant comets to tiny burritos. And they asked Google important questions like, “where do we come from?” and “should I get married?”

That’s why today we’re launching our annual #YearinSearch , a look back at the searches, questions and moments that defined 2014.  

Watch the film, explore the site and relive the year along the way. www.google.com/2014

+Alan Eustace show us how nothing is impossible if you are +Alan Eustace :-). I am very proud of you.
 
Thanks for all the support during this long three years.   The StratEx team was amazing, and I can't thank them enough for their incredible engineering, perseverance, and enthusiasm.   They ROCK!   Also a big thank you to my family, who were not as excited about this project as I was, but put up with it, because it made me happy.   It was a huge sacrifice, and I can't thank them enough.

So cool! And incredibly useful.
 
We’ve all been there — you’ve searched under your car seat, tossed around the sofa cushions and you still can’t find your phone. If you know where your computer is, you can now ask Google to find your Android phone from your desktop. If the pesky phone is hiding nearby, Google can ring it for you — or you can see it on the map if you, say, forgot it at the bar. Just make sure you’ve got the latest version of the Google app!

Mr. Singhal,
This was the best I could do to contact you...Persistence.  I am starting a business that will implement a breakthrough scientific discovery about water, and after three years of development and preparation I am seeking Venture Capital. This is a major innovation for Agriculture and Human Health backed by highly credentialed science. I would like to submit my Investment Proposal to you for review and see if you would like to be the equity partner for $2.1m. My email is jasonishere@me.com

I have always been fascinated by languages, how they evolved, their commonalities, and their differences. My love for languages got me into search as a young grad student. This is one of the most useful language tree depiction I've seen.

Very good burgers. Their fries and onion strings are just bad. They were bitter as if they were fried in oil that has been reused numerous times. The service was also poor.
