Today we're marking the birth of a someone who is a hero to many of us at Google. Alan Turing was born 100 years ago into a world very different from our own—but he’s a founding father of every computer and Internet company today. In 1936, his paper “On Computable Numbers”  introduced two key concepts, “algorithms” and “computing machines," which now rank among the most important intellectual breakthroughs of the 20th century.

In the evolution of computing, all paths trace back to Turing—so we're proud to help commemorate and preserve his legacy. In 2010 we helped raise funds to preserve Turing's papers at Bletchley Park, and recently we’ve worked with curators at London’s Science Museum on their new exhibition “Codebreaker - Alan Turing’s Life and Legacy.” And of course, we couldn't let this occasion pass without a doodle. If you visit our homepage today, you'll find a simulation of his “Turing machine"—try your hand at programming it, and read more about Turing in our blog post: http://goo.gl/ByYbV

Yo +Spotify ,

Your new interstitial every time I open your app that prompts me to subscribe to popular playlists really sucks.

I work in product management so I know about the need to sometimes force change or make tough decisions for the greater product good.

But at the same time, with your new dialog I have to actively untick 4 checkboxes then press the big blue button just to enter Spotify and have my account preserved as it was last time I was there. *

Otherwise, just blindly clicking through the dialog means that every time I'll get more and more and more playlists accumulating in my account from people I don't know full of music I might not like.

I commend the fact you're being brave and trying to force some experimentation on users, but without a "It's okay thanks, not right now" button I worry you're being too aggressive. Which is a shame because otherwise, I frigging love your product :)

* yeah, you can click the red 'x' top left / right but we shouldn't rely on users knowing they have to do that.

Been testing this for a while. Love it so much! I feel like it's reading my mind sometimes...
 
I love this feature much more than I would have expected. I've come to really rely on it.

Inquiring minds would also appreciate knowing what the status of 'repeatable tasks' is for Google Tasks. We have a post from you back in 2011 http://gmailblog.blogspot.ca/2011/01/top-tasks-for-google-tasks.html but nothing tangible since then.

Also, there's an ongoing forum on the issue at: https://productforums.google.com/forum/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=footer#!topic/calendar/swOxJcJv-Ao%5B1-25-false%5D in which the last reply from the Google rep was, something to the effect of "we don't have this function but I'll happily pass it on to the team"...eight months ago. What's happening with this. Is anything happening with this? Please let us know.

Only in business class...it's one thing that's been the same for years, I like it and the fact that they didn't change it.

You may not be L, G, B or T but you probably know somebody who is and will be impacted by this.

the UK government is conducting a public consultation on proposals to give same sex couples the same rights as opposite sex couples when it comes to civil marriage. show your support at the link below!

Brunch. Tasty platters. I got the Swiss platter complete with eggs in the shape of Switzerland. Overall the American brunch looked the best - you can get the egga substituted for a different kind if you ask.
