I haven't been able to get this out of my head for the last three days. I heard a piece that sounded similar and I had to listen to it. It truly is amazing how music has the power to make you feel powerful emotions. This is one of those songs that just gets down in your soul and fills you with joy.

I keep hearing a lot about WhatsApp, and how it's really a social network and all this. But I fail to see how it's any more useful or special than Hangouts, Facebook Messenger, or any other messaging app. I guess part of it is you go where people are communicating. But I don't really know many people who use WhatsApp. Almost everyone I know uses facebook. No one that I know uses Hangouts, but Hangouts combines SMS, MMS, Hangouts chat, and Google Voice all in one place so I can use it to communicate cross platform without too much concern about what apps others are using for communication.

So I most typically use Facebook and Hangouts for all communication. Maybe if everyone I knew was using WhatsApp, and in order to communicate I had to use it, then I'd switch over. But in the meantime I just can't figure out a reason to use it above anything else.

Cool! May need someday!
 
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!

Many of these are reminiscent of the Salt Lake City Public Library. But I'm all for modernizing the design and function of libraries.
 
In an age when Google can replace much of the information-gathering duties librarians once shouldered, libraries need to rethink how they can best serve their users.
The library as a community garden, a public living room, and more innovative ideas from the AIA/ALA Library Building Awards.

According to George R. R. Martin this is the closest to the real throne he envisioned. Albeit with swords rather than PCs. But he said the TV throne was small in comparison to his version.
