Spent yesterday in the Vercors with @nachogrez and a gaggle of #Ut4M photographers experimenting and learning techniques for mountain sports photography... Great fun!

I tried that technique for Tour de France, but they were too fast for my reactions and I missed a lot of shots. So I returned to auto focus.
My Pentax K-30 has "Continuous Focus" and I set it to center spot only. That way I know exactly what should be in focus. When confronted with a pack, I center on person of interest, with zoom sufficiently wide to allow cropping after, I zoom out as they approach, selectively switching targets at similar focal distances, so changes are minimal. Danger is that focus goes to the background then takes too long to come back, so to avoid that I move rapidly between targets. For runners it is much easier than bikes, and my auto focus handles it with ease. I use a 55-300mm zoom for this type of event, which lets you start at a good distance.

I have a Withings scale with CO2 detection in my bedroom, and I think I've noticed a poor sleep correlation with slightly raised CO2 levels (caused by closing the door vs leaving more of an air gap).

Is there a straightforward way to combine the sleep as android data with the Withings co2 records?

Just some sort of usable export would do in the mean time, like a csv or XML with minutes in each kind of sleep (or waking/pausing).  Frankly, anything could be hitched up with a parse-able time stamp....

Could you import CO2 readings (or whatever other readings new devices come up with) as text in the tags?

Aiguilles d'Arves from Lac Guichard last night & this morning...

I took advantage of the last snow-free day to take the Col de la Croix de Fer, and explore a lake I've had on my hit list for a while, and it didn't disappoint. No clouds to reflect the sunset, but it did light up the mountains perfectly and I had a few mirror like reflections as the wind dies and the sun went down.

I decided to bivvy at the lake so managed to catch the sunrise as well (although this location is better for the sunset than the sunrise).

+jon swift Then report it to the devs of the app... Google are under no obligation to do anything to support apps other than their own so posting it here is down right pointless.
This community is for discussing the beta, not the previews.
The bug tracker is for reporting bugs.
The Android Developer Community for N is for developers discussing and helping each other getting their apps N ready etc.
No community is a suitable place to report bugs to Google.

Another reason to use #waze even on the daily commute #speedometer alerts
 
It works like this: when you go over the speed limit, a visual alert will appear on the Waze speedometer. It will stay there until your speed goes below the limit again.

You can choose when the alert appears - either when the limit is reached, or when you exceed the limit by 5, 10, or 15%. The alert sound is optional. The new functionality should be available soon in the Waze app for Android and iOS.
The latest addition to Waze, the community-based traffic and navigation app, has everything to do with speed limits. Namely, the Google-owned app has added support for notifying you when you're going over the speed limit.

So when will we see the ability to connect photospheres into a virtual tour? Perhaps even viewable in Google cardboard?

Real-World Vaporware: Charge Your Phone With a Hydrogen Reactor | Gadget...
www.wired.com

The portable Brunton Reactor charges gadgets using hydrogen fuel-cell technology, and it emits water vapor as it powers up your gear.

Very surprising business model... I do my own research, walk in asking to see a specific apartment, and the first thing they want you to do is to sign up for their apartment search service for €160... for which they'll tell you which apartments they have to offer (from their pretty sparse website). If you decline the 160 offer, then you pay 80% of the first month's rent if you end up going with them, just as you would do for any other agent. Ok - I could see the possible benefit if they were searching across multiple agents to find something that met my needs, and then proposed a list of viewings - that would be worth the fee... but asking for cash up front before showing a customer around any properties feels too much like a scam.

I might have given it a 4, because the burger was good, but the bun was pretty ordinary. A slightly better than average burger joint for Grenoble.
