Yes! It seems to be a moral maze for some people. In the UK we recently discovered that some local authority crematoria were using the waste heat to provide warmth for local schools and elderly people's units. I mean it is waste heat after all.

(BTW, who doesn't believe in the value of human life? Very few people, including mass murderers and despots...)

I'm really liking the new Lens Blur mode of the Google Camera App!

So... mimicking what you get with a wide aperture and a short focal length. Nice effect.

I really enjoyed this vlog! The workout was incredibly cute. By the way, what camera are you using? I know you use a GoPro, but some parts of the footage looked like they were shot on an entirely different (and better) camera, DSLR quality

Only cool guys can pull off this look.

Needless to say...I'm not really pulling it off. Like really, my feet are stuck.

This reminds me of a robo-villain in a bad 1980s sci-fi flick.

Check out the first 5 minutes of How to Train Your Dragon 2! It looks like a worthy sequel.

There in the ground His body lay, light of the world by darkness slain.
Then bursting forth in glorious Day, up from the grave He rose again!
Christ is risen from the dead, trampling over death by death! Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? Raise your joys and triumphs high; Christ the Lord is risen today. Alleluia!

New Google Camera - Lens Blur

If you haven't already heard, Google released a standalone "Google Camera" app to the Play Store yesterday. So far, it's pretty awesome! I love the Lens Blur effect, which essentially allows you to create photos with a a shallow depth of field, like an SLR camera does. Here's an example of a Lens Blur picture I took with my #Nexus7 (2013).

Note: is the camera app massively draining anyone else's battery, especially when using/rendering Lens Blurs?

Sorry, I haven't noticed any battery drain, and I've been fussing with the new camera all day.

New Trailer for How To Train Your Dragon 2!

It looks like a worthy successor to the first movie! I hope they didn't reveal too much of the plot already, though.

Introduction
Hello! I'm Daniel Matthew James, nice to meet you! 

I'm a pretty easy-going, fun-loving guy. I'm a Christian; I love technology, social media, volunteering at Awana (a worldwide church youth program), LotR, athletics, music, and lots more. I love my Nexus 4 and 7 and I spend a lot of time scouring tech blogs and tech news. Currently, I am a freshman studying Electrical/Computer engineering at The University of Texas at Austin.

One of my dreams is to someday work for Google, my favorite company. If you have any tips, please let me know! It'd be much appreciated.

If at all possible, I would like to ask you to not posting anything explicit, sexual, or otherwise offensive on my page. That includes language. Thanks!

PLEASE NOTE: if you follow me, it is quite likely that I will not follow you back unless you interact with my posts. Otherwise, it'd be impossible for me to keep up with the flow of information if I circled every random person that followed me. I'm looking for great relationships with y'all!

I went here today to view the musical theater presentation of The Sound of Music, and it was fantastic! If you come to watch any of the shows, be sure to bring a blanket (plastic blankets/tarps are not allowed for some reason) that can get a little dirty. And you'll probably want some bug spray as well. Get ready for an awesome time!

It's a great park; I go there every week to play Ultimate Frisbee on the spacious field. The facilities are great.

Excellent service! I bought a '11 Versa from here a few months back, and it was great; I was able to get an excellent price for it after a lot of bargaining. I just went again today to get my oil changed, and their service was fantastic. The guy at the desk (Matt, I believe) was quite friendly and humorous. The waiting room was comfortable and well-stocked with coffee, donuts, and other things. I'm considering buying another Versa now. If you go here, ask for Jacob; he's great.

Great church; I come here every week for the AWANA program, which is the best in the state (possibly the country!). The facilities are fantastic, especially in the new sanctuary building.

I went to this Starbucks for the first time because I had a coupon for a free drink, it being my birthday today. The service was great; I got my free drink with no questions asked. The building is fantastic and spacious; there are lots of tables, chairs, and couches to sit on, as well as free Wifi. You should try the Chocolate Cookie Crumble Frappuccino, it's fantastic!
