Zulip, Tomfoolery, Yammer, and now "Fleep?"  I wish I'd known eighteen months ago that reinventing Google Wave was now a viable business model.

I'm way behind the times on this story, but the ideas behind Duolingo are amazing. #duolingo

#ifihadglass  I would combine Google's Speech-to-Text API with the onboard microphone and Closed Caption the entire world for the hearing impaired.  You could try lip-reading with Glass's camera and one of the open source Java-based AVSR libraries as well.

Why is ESPN hosted by Go.com?  Does their Sysadmin still have a Geocities page as well?

Is there a way to search for publicly shared playlists on Google Play, the way Grooveshark and Spotify will allow you to? #googleplaymusicallaccess

Had our DSL installed today.  It's crazy how much better the connection seems, despite the lower overall throughput.  I assume this is due to the fact that Time Warner was caching and proxying YouTube, Amazon, and everything else that consumed a lot of bandwidth.

Wow. I was wondering. We have a 60" plasma TV and a home theater computer and download speeds up over 30 MBps. When I play 1080p videos from the HD it is a tiny bit choppy but otherwise OK and 720 is smooth as butter. But when I paid for an HD episode of Breaking Bad on Amazon Instant Video it was so laggy it was unwatchable. Had to purchase the SD version of the same episode in order to watch! And yet, Netflix HD movies are OK. And even HD YouTube videos on the Chromecast look fine. So here I am thinking "I guess I need a new computer with a fast CPU and a zippy video card," but...
Maybe not!
Damn! Had no idea...

Is it just me, or does the new iOS7 look like what Metro should have looked like?  The thin fonts, the minimal borders and chrome, the high contrast colors...  I can't help thinking it's what Microsoft would have come up with first if they didn't suck at UI. #ios7   #metro   #uidesign

Now that I've seen a few of the screen-by-screen comparisons that people have posted, I agree with you.  Weird that Apple's design team seems to be playing a bit of catch up.

Good god.  The source tarball for Chromium is so big it took my work desktop a minute and a half just to open it in Winrar.

I wonder if there's any work being done at +Google+ headquarters to combine posts the way Google News does.  Frequently I end up with four or five individual posts created by separate news sources covering the same phenomenon (and frequently linking to the same original article).  It clutters up my feed and vexes me so.

Given Google's long experience with document distance problems and machine learning (I'm looking at you, auto-hashtags), this has to be an achievable feature.

That's a great idea actually... additionally if two people share the same original post.  It'd be nice to stack them together somehow in a collected block.

How is it that people are whining about the new G+ interface?  I can understand the usual "no one uses it!" complaints, but the minimized chrome and responsive layout make it one hell of a news reader/aggregator. #googleplusupdate

Maybe it's because I've been using it slightly longer internally (which has both given me time to get used to it, AND, I've seen how much they improved it from early versions), but I'm leaving it on and not minding it so far.

A casino just opened in Columbus, and I'll probably try and play cards there this weekend.  It's weird, though--according to this site:

http://www.bravopokerlive.com/site/scasinodetail?cid=HCBS&mid=x

They run no-limit games almost exclusively.  I remember at the Grand in Biloxi, it was a rare thing to have even one no-limit game out of the thirty tables.  The times are a-changin', apparently.

Have you ever eaten really, really good Chinese food that was served to you by a grandmother in a former strip joint? If not, head to Helen's and cross it off your bucket list. The meals are authentic and delicious, the prices are reasonable, and because it used to be a gentlemen's club, there are mirrors everywhere so you can watch yourself eat. Order the Beef with Chinese Broccoli and prepare to have your faith in God restored.
