Recently all my photography revolved around high school and middle school cheerleading :) I need to get back to shooting other stuff and experiment with different scenery... Until then, I'm sharing some of my favorite shots.

Google does enough to get other companies to fill the need they create...

I agree with the posting. But I have a slightly different view about Google's ADHD: I think they are very focused. and their focus is making money, ie. advertising (their core business).

All other initiatives are meant to create new revenue streams for Google (more searches/more advertising) then spur competition in that new market, without a very high Google capital investment.

Google does enough to get other companies to fill the need they create. Once that happens, they pull out.

The Google-Way

In the long run...
Google Fiber > Project Loon, Driver-less cars, anti-aging

If Google stuck it out and understood the long game then Fiber would end up turning a profit. But Page and Brin have ADHD. X projects like Loon, Driver-less cars, and anti-aging are not going to pan out nor bring in money. The car makers are never going to license Google automated systems when every car maker is currently working on their own. Car makers are not going to be beholden to Google. Won't happen.

Let's take a look at the Google-way of doing things (Announce something big, get users excited, get users hooked, Google gets bored, Sunsets the initiative, announces something else).

1) Google Fiber - Looks like expansion is going to be DOA outside of current cities
2) Reader
3) iGoogle
4) Nexus 7 product line
5) Nexus Player product line
6) Android One
7) Google TV
8)Android TV (We all know that Chromecast is the number one between these two and Android TV is an afterthought).
9)Hangouts all in one messaging
10) Hangouts Live on Air stripped to Youtube
11) G+ Events stripped to Youtube
12) The dismantling of G+
13) Wave
14) Glass
15) Robotics (General Dynamics sold and the entire robotics team split up).
16) Motorola and the phone initiative
17) Google Books Publishing
18) Nexus Q
19) Even more: https://goo.gl/GYvyi7

While not all have been sunset, they have either been torn apart or left to whither. And this is what people are seeing. Comments to articles point out this MO regularly now. Why go in on anything Google or get excited about a Google initiative when chances are, Google will get bored of it and move on???

The real issue that MUST be pointed out is this, Google is an internet advertising company first and a dabbler in technology second. The ADHD shows that they have no patience in building any other revenue. Fiber takes time to build out and payoff. Product lines take time but must be maintained to pay off. A phone maker takes time but could pay off. Robotics would definitely payoff down the road (look for robotics to become huge and then for Google to get back into it just to have a foot in the sector, only to ditch it when they find themselves so far behind). Google's MO (Method of Operation) is quite telling and easily mapped out at this point. They are full of ideas but no follow through.

Case in point... lets speculate a little. I'm NOT buying into Google Home. I'm sticking with Amazon's Echo because Amazon maps out a course and makes it happen. I think Google Home will come out, the fanboys will buy in, it won't have the ability to pull developers (it's closed versus the Echo being an open platform, only Google authorized OEM's allowed), and it will be a one year and done product with no upgrade path or continued product line. Classic Google MO. It' the Google-Way!!!!!!!!!

When Google Fiber signups go live for my area, I'm signing up (should be by the end of year) but when it comes to Google initiatives... I have my eyes open and a grain of salt for everything announced. Google Fiber, Google Fi are both very good initiatives that Google could stick with and make great. Will they? No clue. Outside of "Search" and advertising, nothing Google does can be counted on for the long haul. It's sad but true. Until Google changes the "Google-Way", this MO will remain the same.

That's not enough. When people move toward something, they want to keep utilizing it. For example...
No Nexus 7 to upgrade.... waited a whole year and nothing. So I did what others did, Bought a Fire Tablet and upgraded my kindle too. Now I buy my books and comics from Amazon where I was buying them from the Play Store.
My Nexus Player died... no Nexus player in stock, it was discontinued. No Nexus player on the horizon. For me, I don't like the Chromecast experience. So Fire TV it is. Result.... buying more movies and shows from Amazon now and not buying from the Play store.
People don't like buying into things if the company is just going to use them to get a market open. We're getting to the point now where people are seeing the Google Way and people are switching off of Google because the trust is no longer there.

The legendary Canon 5D has reached Mk IV! Expect lots of reviews coming out, but in the meantime you can read the first impressions from the biased DP Review.
 
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV First Impressions Review - The Canon EOS 5D series is arguably one of the must recognizable camera lines of the digital age and the Mark IV is designed to appeal to the same wide range of enthusiasts and professionals.

Why Luxury TVs Are Affordable when Basic Health Care Is Not
Imagine this. You are feeling under the weather. You pull out your smartphone and click the Rx app. A nurse arrives in 20 minutes at your home. He gives you a blood test and recommends to the doctor that she prescribe a treatment. It is sent to the CVS down the street, which delivers it to your door in 20 minutes. The entire event costs $20.

Sounds nuts? Not so much. Not if health care were a competitive industry.

If you want good services, good products, innovative ideas, and low prices, you need competitive markets. The more you control, the higher the prices and the worse the results.

A little touch of Nougat for my venerable Nexus 6! I've been running 7.0 since yesterday, and so far so good.

BTW, as stated before, the quickest way to get the update on your Nexus device is to join the Android beta program.

This is very disappointing! In other words, for the non-business users Google is moving away from the multi-platform communication apps.

They say that having one app that does it all is not feasible. But somehow Facebook has managed to do a pretty good job with Communicator - text and video, one-on-one AND group messaging, on all your devices.

To give this a slight political twinge (we are, after all, in an electoral season!), remaining a Google stalwart is beginning to feel a lot like when you unconditionally support the Republican or Democrat clowns, believe in their promises only to be brutally let down, election cycle after election cycle :)

Very popular for Saturday and Sunday brunch! They have a great Bloody Mary bar, and serve several Bloody Mary variations (e.g. with bourbon instead of vodka). Good service, friendly staff. Good is also on a par with other restaurants.

A great place to visit, whenever you are in Chicago! Admire the great views of Lake Michigan and the amazing Chicago skyline, while enjoying many tourist attractions and plenty of restaurants. The only downside is that, depending when what day of the week you visit, it can get REALLY busy! Not unexpected for such a popular landmark, but your visit can nevertheless become less enjoyable, particularly if it happens to be a very hot, muggy day.
