So long Picasa.😕
It has been announced that Picasa will be retired in the coming months for Alphabet to focus on a single photo service, that being Google Photos. The aim is to combine the desktop and mobile experiences into a single product, but that doesn't mean everything you've done on Picasa will be lost forever.

Right, but this can't come as a big surprise... Only sucks that certain services and features are online-only (or cloud-only to be exact).

With all that discussions about the failures of mobile app stores we tend to forget how horrible the software distribution situation is on the Desktop (especially on Windows)
It’s a scary time to be a Windows user. Lenovo was bundling HTTPS-hijacking Superfish adware, Comodo ships with an even worse security hole called PrivDog, and dozens of other apps like LavaSoft are doing the same. It’s really bad, but if you want your encrypted web sessions to be hijacked just head to CNET Downloads or any freeware site, because they are all bundling HTTPS-breaking adware now.

Some interesting insight into the last security update round for Android. And seems like my bad feeling about that wifi bug was unfortunately right. Zimperium suspects that this bug might also triggerable if you run a hotspot on your phone... (though they don't have a working exploit yet)
By: Zuk Avraham, Joshua Drake, Nikias Bassen from Zimperium zLabs The last thirty days proven to be yet another exciting time for the mobile security ecosystem. Apple and Google released updates for their respective mobile operating systems that fix several critical issues — including some in the kernel that may be exploited remotely.

Google now has a dedicated People API which should make working with user profiles easier as up til now you had to call both the Google+ and Contacts info to get everything you wanted. This also is set to supersede the Contacts API in the future.

Even though Flash might not die as fast as most of us would like to, Google is now putting another nail into its coffin.
Acceptance of new Flash ads ends in June; old Flash ads can remain until January.

Alternative title: Gmail now blaming all the mail providers that don't support TLS encryption in transit. Good.

YouTube Red Originals has officially launched (For Red-Users with an US IP). Guess I'm not really in the target demographic for the first bunch of videos, still will be interesting to see how this evolves.

What I find interesting: pewds currently lives nearby London, which means he can't watch his own show? ;)

Seems like Google is still not entirely sure how to deal with Ad Blockers in the Play Store.

I could give you one or two recommendations but seriously: Just go there and get anything - it will be fantastic. Great tartes and cakes - highly recommended.

Even though employees at Starbucks are usually rotating in a pretty quick order this place has somehow managed to consinstently stay the worst Starbucks restaurant in Vienna. Getting something else than you ordered, disorganized personnel resulting in long waiting times and harsh / unfriendly service - everything to be "enjoyed" here on a regular basis.

Don't get me wrong: The bread at Joseph is fantastic, no doubt about that. And most of the time this is true for the rest of the food (including some really tasty sweets) too. BUT: From time to time the sandwiches taste like they had been in the refrigerator before (meaning they are leftovers from the day before). And for the prices Joseph charges this unacceptable. So I have to deduct a point.

Nice cafe with decent prices and food / drink quality. But most importantly it comes with a certain twist: There is a diverse set of often pretty artsy furniture that you can actually buy (which is also where they got their name from: "Möbel" is the german word for "furniture") Also offers a good breakfast buffet on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 a.m to 4 p.m.

Great Thai food with very friendly service at fair prices. Be aware: Very spicy if you order so. (not like western spicy but really spicy). Also of note: The interior stems back to the days when this was a typical Austrian "Gasthaus" which makes for an interesting combination.
Food: ExcellentDecor: GoodService: Excellent

Come for the mexican food, stay for the cocktails (way too long ;) ) Both drinks and food quality is good, prices are decent. Especially love the laid-back vibe.

Eis-Greissler has maybe the best organic ice cream in Vienna. Beware: This place is closed during the winter season! Also it is very small (take-out only) and in the summer you have to be prepared for pretty long waiting lines. Buy it definitely is worth the waiting time.
