A typically insightful article from +Mike Elgan on "hearable computing."

BTW, my brother +Jason Horowitz works at the leading hearing research company, Starkey.  In addition to putting him in a Circle (+Jason Horowitz) you can follow him on Twitter if you're interested in these things (
Listen up! Hearable computing is the Next Big Thing!

I believe the next big thing in computing is the audio interface. Call it hearable computing.

Hearable computing is not a sub-genre of wearable computing, nor mobile computing, nor desktop computing. It’s a thing unto its own. And I believe it will take two forms: First, the always listening, ubiquitous microphone; and second, the always listening user.

Here's what's coming:

If the guy wasn't already likable enough... now this!  What a phenomenon this song and this singer are...
This unfiltered emotional display only makes the most likable man in pop music more likable*. After watching a montage of fan-made videos to his No. 1 hit "Happy" during his interview on Oprah Prime, Pharrell wept (and wept). When the renaissance man finally pulled himself together, he explained, "It's overwhelming, because it's like I love what I do, and I just appreciate the fact that people have believed in me for so long that I could make it ...

Really looking forward to seeing the movie +Transcendence.  Hopefully this will be as provocative and entertaining as "Her", which I loved.

"Her" was phenomenal. Looking forward to this as well.

For those of you that enjoyed +Google Maps wonderful Pokemon April Fool's joke, +Audrey Dijeau has made a great "Field Guide" that will help you catch them all!

This was so awesome - so glad they extended it. My mom learned how to use maps on her iPad because of it. She found 115. But, I didn't log her in, and when she rebooted, they were gone! Is there any way to get the pokemon turned back on for her login?

I'm a bit of a dosa snob (having lived in India for a spell) and was very excited to try Dosa... We ordered a few appetizers and the classic standard by which all dosas must be judged - the Masala Dosa. Delicious. The dosa itself was crisp, light and not burned... and the filling was deliciously spiced and not oily. The appetizer was beautifully presented. All in all a very efficient and great night.

We treated ourselves to an evening of fine dining at Feitoria, in the beautiful Altis Belem Hotel and Spa. The Hotel and restaurant are stunningly beautiful. Right on the shores of the Tagus river, the views at sunset are spectacular... as the light is glistening and warmly glowing on the hillsides across the river. The decor of the hotel is understated, austere even, and classic. Minimilist granite. The food was a bit of "molecular gastronomy", but without overdoing it to the degree it becomes circus. We were served an "amuse bouche" of a savory oreo - black crackers, with crab cake filling. Delicious. Then we were brought gazpacho soup in a martini glass - including a faux olive (that was produced via molecular gastronomic magic.) For our entrees - I ordered the crusted sole, and my better half wisely ordered the 5 course tasting menu and wine pairings. She was presented with dish after exquisite dish. Everything was exceptionally and freshly presented. The staff as attentive and light-hearted. The wines were varied and delicious. We really enjoyed dessert. I ordered the "Seven textures of Apples" and she had the "Banana Split." Like many of our dishes, each one came with a narration and explanation as to the unique preparation. This was a perfect meal to what turned out to be a perfect night. We'll be back here whenever opportunity allows.

Fantastic sushi, convenient to the theater district. As good as it gets. Offered us a children's omakaze selection.

I'm here for the Wall Street Journal "D10" Conference, and I couldn't be more impressed with this facility. Sometimes it's easy for me to forget that when you factor out the cars, the people, the scene, etc. Los Angeles is gorgeous! A short 30m drive down the Pacific Coast Highway, and here you are... The staff, the rooms, the food... all first rate. I'd consider coming back here for a family trip.

We had a really lovely early lunch at Asiate, upon checking into the Mandarin Oriental at Columbus Circle. The food was really exceptional, and the view (on the 35th floor overlooking the park) was breath-taking. Service was comfortably casual and friendly. It was a great way to start our NYC adventure.
