+1.  I immediately ordered a Chromecast Audio.
 
Chromecast Audio

Of everything that +Google​ announced yesterday, this is what's got me pumped the most. I've always loved the idea of wireless music systems like Sonos Connect but at well over £250 there's no way I would ever choose one over Chromecast Audio for £30*

+Al Billings This is just for Audio. The old Chromecast needed Chrome to run only if you were casting a tab from your Chrome browser on the computer. Otherwise, most media apps allowed you to cast.

What device have you been casting from to your TV?

It's going to be a good week:  Hello, motion design community! Would you like to talk about web animation today?
Web design and motion design have been on a collision course since the early 2000s. Today, they're finally merging, spawning strange new fields — and the terminology to go with them. One term that'...

IT'S ABOUT TIME.  :)
 
Introducing new ways to organize and share your photos

With Google Photos, you have a home for all your photos and videos, organized and brought to life, so you can share and save what matters. Today, we’re announcing three new features that help you better find and share the photos and videos that matter, with the people that matter.

Chromecast Support

Better share photos and videos in person, and on the biggest screen, your TV!

Beginning tomorrow, you can cast photos and videos to your TV with Chromecast. Choose what appears on the TV while you browse your library, and even cast photos you just took – photos and videos don’t need to be backed up first.

Chromecast support is rolling out this week on Android and coming soon to iOS.

People Labeling

Label the people in your photos by what you call them, name or nickname.

This week in the U.S. you’ll be able to label the people in your photos however you want - Mom can be “Mom”, “Juliana”, or “Cat Lady” – whatever you choose. These labels are completely private to you and are not associated with a Google account or profile. Once people in your photos are labeled, you can make advanced searches to find photos of people with things, places or people, such as “Mom at the beach” or “Juliana and Marco in Hawaii.”

People labeling is rolling out in the U.S. this week on Android and is coming soon to iOS and the web.

Shared Albums

Gather all your photos and videos from friends and family in one spot, and know as soon as new moments are added.

We’re introducing shared albums later this year – a new, easy way to pool photos and videos with whomever you want, and get updates when new moments are added. There’s no setup involved, and you can use shared albums on any device – Android, iOS, Mac, Windows and Chrome OS.

Stay tuned for updates on when these features are available. For more on today's Google announcements, visit http://goo.gl/klbhET.

For programmers building software for the new Apple TV, Apple lopped out the ability to run games and apps built with Web standards. Go native or go home!

+Nick Felker​ — Apple's corporate instincts are generally towards control and closed, not collaboration and open.

They accidentally find themselves on the open side occasionally — for example, promoting HTML5 over Flash, probably because they (wrongly) assumed that HTML5 would never be powerful enough to compete with iOS native apps as a gaming platform — but it's not their go-to position for hardware or software.

Ha! Hadn't even thought of that, but I suppose that's appropriate too. :)

Story

Where unicorns roam and rainbows soar over candy-sprinkled meadows.
Introduction

Co-author of NCSA Mosaic for Windows v 1.0.  IE guy for over a decade.  Open standards advocate. Ex-Microsoftie.  Googler.  Study in contradictions.

I am currently a Developer Advocate at Google Inc.

I began working on the Internet in 1991 when I joined NCSA, working on the PC version of NCSA Telnet.  I started working on web browsers in 1993 when I co-authored the original Windows version of NCSA Mosaic, the first mass-market WWW browser.  After leaving NCSA in 1994 and spending a year working on the AIRMosaic web browser for SPRY, Inc., I joined Microsoft's Internet Explorer team as a developer in 1995.

Over the course of 15 years, I represented Microsoft in many standards working groups, in particular helping develop standards for Cascading Style Sheets, HTML, the Document Object Model and XSL through the W3C working groups.  I also developed the first implementation of Cascading Style Sheets in Internet Explorer – the first, in fact, in any mass-market web browser.  Beginning in 2001, I spent a few years working on the WPF project, but rejoined the IE team in 2004 to lead the IE Platform and Security team, then moved to work on the Javascript engine team in 2009.

In September of 2010, I left Microsoft and joined Google’s Developer Relations team, and worked on Google TV through the end of 2011.  I now work on the Open Web Platform in the Chrome team, and in 2013 I relocated from Seattle to San Jose, CA.

In my free time, I take pictures, go hiking with my wife and two young daughters, work on our house and scuba dive.
