I had literally no idea it was mined like this.

What happens when it all runs out?

Very interesting!  I've gone to the quarries in Carrara, but I only took the tour of the mines inside the mountain, not surface mining.  There is a big difference between the two mining styles, it seems; subterranean mining uses dynamite and hydraulic systems to force out big chunks of marble.  They have these big metal sheets which are wedged into crevices and then filled with high pressure water to become metal "pillows" which separate the blocks.

Tune in on NASA TV right now. A SpaceX rocket is about to launch in T-minus 8 minutes. (Posted at 13:25 PDT on Monday April 13th, 2015.)

Via +Ed S, the YT feed is here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVUCVYRGcUo

Be sure to stick around for the attempted landing of the booster, which (if successful) would be a first.

Introducing more options for deploying more great software to Google Cloud Platform, even more easily. Visit cloud.google.com/launcher to give it a shot.

Big thanks also to our friends at +Bitnami​!

I'm just an engineer, but the IPO market stills seems a bit dodgy to me.

Case in point is a stock like $BOX, which, at the underwriting bank's urging, was pre-sold ahead of the IPO at $14 to institutional investors. And as you recall, the business press made a lot of hay at the time about it rocketing to $23 on the first day of public trading, thus "leaving money on the table", which just means that Box the company didn't get it, but the institutional investors (the underwriting banks and their top partners and clients) did, and walked away with the gains of this huge 70% one-day pop.

Are the pre-sale investors locked up, or were they able to unload right away? If the later, the kicker is that $BOX is trading back in the $16 dollar range again, thus having taken public investors for the billion dollar difference in under two months.

Well played, banks. Well played.

+Wes Winham: Hambrecht is (AFAIK) the only major bank to use Dutch auctions for their IPOs, and they've apparently done ~20 of them total, with the most recent I can find being Netsuite in 2007.

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.

Since I don't know which pundit to believe (anywhere from "the second coming" to "meh" to "epic fail"), let's put it to an unscientific survey of you:

Will you buy an Apple Watch?

Yep. But I will buy the cheapest one possible. I've done a lot of speculation about the Apple Watch, but have not properly reviewed it yet. I can only honestly review new tech if I have tried a device out for awhile. Will I ultimately like or even use the Apple Watch? Only time will tell.
