Greetings everyone! Has anyone had any experience controlling/automating AC window units over the web? Our house will be coming with a few and I don't want to buy new ones unless they start failing.

Hi Andrew,

We have information on one way of providing automated control of motorised window actuators (when you have access to the open/close inputs on the actuator) on this page: http://www.cleverhome.com.au/products/motorised-window-linear-actuators.shtml 

Remote control of these may be provided by using a C-Bus Wiser 2 home automation controller: http://www.cleverhome.com.au/products/Clipsal-C-Bus-Wiser-Home-Controller-2.shtml

Question for the Photos team: will the Snapseed editing component be making a return at some point? It feels like a step backwards in terms of editing power.

+Philotech Müller  But my question was for the desktop side. And I liked editing one picture with my changes being tracked instead of having duplicates everywhere. It's become less seamless IMO.

This is an interesting story.  I don't "know" Erica, but I remembering interacting with/in the same threads as her back when Google+ launched and she struck me as a great person.

I'm actually a pretty big fan of salary transparency.  Not because I think that everyone out there is looking to screw over their coworkers, but because I think it can point to bigger problems (intentional or not) in hiring and raises, so good on her for doing this.

But the main reason I wanted to share this piece is because of the trash that BI calls the comment section.  Shit like the comments left on this article are exactly WHY the idea that people get paid less based on their gender/race is still a thing.  In the comments people said :

1) Comments on how she looks
2) That she's not a "real" engineer. (bullpucky)
3) That she "accepted" her salary so she can't complain (to which the response is, how can you really accept something if you don't know the scale offered to others)
4) That Google should fire her for encouraging discussion of salaries (bullpucky) 
5) That the only reason she got a job at Google and now Slack is because she's a POC women (seriously, someone thinks this)

You want to know why people still get so worked up about racial and gender inequality?  Look at those comments..  do you see anyone discussing the merits of the study? No, you see people trivializing her opinion because she's a women and a person of color.

And we STILL want to operate under the myth of a meritocracy?  really?
