Woah! $1.51/liter of gas today! And we haven't even hit the unofficial start of summer yet!

Good thing I filled up last night. It was 144.9 at the Edmonds Husky. I generally try to fill up in the evening before the weekend. Gas usually goes up on weekends, especially long weekends.

I also recommend the GasBuddy app. It lists gas prices of stations around town. You can use it to find the cheapest gas prices. Usually, they are cheaper in and around New Westminster.

Yep! The guy did get kicked in the head by the person (probably the conductor) on the train.

I followed the link and did the "Edison Intelligence Test".  Scored 55% on it.  Guess I'm not good enough to work for Edison.

I remember when the iPad was announced by Steve Jobs. The first thing that came to mind was that this was a great media consumption device, but a not so good content production device.
 
A student write-up of "iPads vs. Chromebooks in a 1:1 Environment" It all comes down to production.

Oh WOW!  This is one thing that has definitely put me off from getting a non-Nexus or GDE phone - the lack of Photosphere in the camera.  I love photosphere!

I may consider feature phones now - even though I really don't need a new phone.  I always say that to myself.  Man, does the new HTC One M8 look more tempting now!
 
Holy crap!

Hey +Chris Pirillo , +Marques Brownlee , +Armando Ferreira and others - got my students doing a comparison and research project on Mac vs. PC vs. Chromebook.  Inevitably they are watching your review videos on these devices for their research.

Anyone out there in my circles make any suggestions?

I like the new look of the new Google Camera app. I do understand the reason why the settings UI changed from the 'touch to pop up' menu to what they have now with the left side slide out menu for camera modes and the horizontal dots for the camera settings.

The old style UI in the old KitKat camera has issues of things like your finger getting in the way or the pop up menu running out of screen real estate because you're too close to the edge of the screen.

Google doing its best to prevent VVS - Vertical Video Syndrome.

In the new camera app, if you are holding your device in portrait orientation while in video mode, an animated icon shows in the middle prompting you to rotate 90-degrees to landscape format.
 
Good guy Google. Knows you're being bad and shooting a vertical video, shows you rotating arrows to help you not be bad.

Crop would work but you'd be wasting sensor pixels. Then again video is lower resolution anyhow. It would also result in zooming in though. I don't really see a better way to solve it than get the user to rotate their phone.

Here's how a young immigrant to Canada who became a terrorist. Read about his reflections and how he realizes the process of transformation he went through to go from a regular immigrant kid to a bombing suspect.
 
EXCLUSIVE: In a series of letters with CBC, one of the men convicted in the so-called Toronto 18 bombing plot in 2006 says he had a typical middle-class immigrant upbringing in the suburbs west of Toronto. http://www.cbc.ca/1.2532671?cmp=fbtl

Saad Khalid offers his own analysis of his transformation from a typical immigrant teenager to a radical convicted on a terrorism-related charge.

It's the PNE! Playland is always fun. Plenty of rides for the little ones and classic rides like the old wooden roller coaster for the big ones. The Star Trek exhibit is neat for trekkies, but photos not allowed in the exhibit. Lots of costumes, models and facts about Star Trek. Even have a timeline to put all the different series in sequence. Can have a long line to get in, so get there early. At least they show Star Trek movie while waiting.
