Note: Apologies to the company -- it's actually spelled "Moleskine." It's been fixed in the actual article.
Molskine, the high-end notebook vendor, has packaged a 'smart' pen with a specially imprinted paper notebook that lets you transfer your written notes to your mobile device.

This is awful. I've put a lot of time and effort over the years to maintain Picasa and Picas Web, both of which are Best in Class. They should be incorporating Picasa into Photos, not shuttering it.

Google is closing down the desktop-based photo organizer it bought in 2004 to focus on Google Photos.

Very nice folk; if they don't have what you want, they'll order it for you -- and if you're a regular, they'll stock it. And yes, you need to stop and check out their windows; there's always something fun and witty there.
