Inside Abbey Road might be the best thing I've ever seen on the Internet. Be sure to linger a while on the vintage microphones on display at stop 11/15. Every aspect of this entire presentation is wonderful. Thank you, Google!
Google has opened the doors to Abbey Road Studios! Explore, discover and play inside the iconic British recording studio.

Footage of yesterday's attempt to land a rocket launch stage, after successfully delivering a supply capsule en route to ISS.
 
Wow, amazing footage. I'm grateful that +Elon Musk is being so transparent with the results of these historic attempts!

Chrome 42 is out, and you might notice that old-style (NPAPI) plugins like Java and Unity Web Player are now disabled by default. You can re-enable these, for now:
  chrome://flags/#enable-npapi

This is especially notable for Ludum Dare this weekend, in the likely event that you or someone else uses Unity to make a game and wants to distribute the game via web plugin. #LDJAM  http://ludumdare.com/compo/

Official announcement from last November says NPAPI will be removed completely in September. Anyone know if Unity has announced migration plans? http://blog.chromium.org/2014/11/the-final-countdown-for-npapi.html

Announcement/reminder: I'm doing a webcast on Tuesday about Building Scalable Web Apps with Python and Google Cloud Platform. 10AM PT, free. http://www.oreilly.com/pub/e/3388

The material I have prepared skews introductory with an App Engine and Python focus. Let me know if there's something specific you'd like to know more about. There will be time for Q&A.

There will be archival video and slides, if you can't attend it live.

So many folks have asked me over the years "what do you do at Google?"  I often have to just shrug my shoulders.

Well, the group I worked with (prior to my current team) has published a paper:  I used to be manager of the Borgmaster team.  What's a Borgmaster?  Read the paper.  :-)

For 15 years, John Siracusa has written extensive reviews of each release of Mac OS X for Ars Technica. John has announced that 10.10 will be his last full review, and he won't be doing another one this year. I've enjoyed and admired his passion for technology and design, the depth of his understanding, and the clarity of his writing. Perhaps it's an end of an era, but it's the beginning of a new one, and I'm looking forward to it.

The announcement includes links to all of John's Mac OS X writing. Worth a look.

Nearly 15 years ago, I wrote my first review of Mac OS X for a nascent “PC enthusiast's" website called Ars Technica. Nearly 15 years later, I wrote my last. Though Apple will presumably announce the next major version of OS X at WWDC this coming June, I won't be reviewing it for Ars Technica or ...

Some great stuff in the NYTimes interactive feature on sandwiches. Not so fond of the segmented scroll animations, but still, sandwiches.

A new gem of the Seattle downtown area, in the International District. Pinball machines from across history, up to present day, all in very good condition. Some great titles, including Tales of the Arabian Nights, Revenge From Mars, and X-Men. Very fun to play the old electro-mechanical machines, and see some solid-state machines open for repair and display. Unlimited play for $10 adults, $7 kids. Also Pac-Man, Galaga, and a snack bar. The owners are friendly and knowledgeable. I can't wait to go back!
