Very interesting announcement.

First, it proves that private space companies is a sustainable business. If previously we saw government-to-government and government-to-business space services, now it will eventually be switching to business-to-business model, leading to open market, competition, cost reduction and following commoditization of the market.

Second, it seems like we're going to have internet as ubiquitous as GPS. It means that in any place on Earth you will have guaranteed internet connection. Everywhere. You wouldn't even think if there is internet or not, it will always be wherever you are. Like air. Of course it will be slow at first, but then it will get faster and faster up to the point when speed stops being an issue. Add the internet of things into the picture and you will see the next level of humankind.
Space Exploration Technologies Corp., the rocket maker run by billionaire Elon Musk, said that Google Inc. and Fidelity Investments have invested $1 billion that will give them a combined stake of almost 10 percent.

The first commercial jetliner. It's been 60 years since then and jetliners still look pretty much the same (although technical characteristics undoubtedly have greatly improved).

Very interesting photos of interior.

Article also explains why passenger windows have rounded shapes. It wasn't so initially and it led to several crashes.

Thank you +Stephen Redmond for giving it a look! It is indeed a bit too bare and too technical at this point. We've made a foundation -- an in-memory data transformation engine and now switching focus more on UX and usability but haven't done much work in that direction yet. Dragging files into application, collapsible data grids -- all is on our feature roadmap and a few more niceties. Keep an eye on EasyMorph -- it's only the beginning.

Updated Google Maps suddenly reveal Russian self-propelling artillery shelling Ukrainian military camp across the Russia-Ukraine border. You can see it yourself:

Russian self-propelling artillery 
https://www.google.ca/maps/@47.9019982,39.8586175,204m/data=!3m1!1e3

Ukrainian camp
https://www.google.ca/maps/@47.9295609,39.7364723,815m/data=!3m1!1e3

To illustrate it better I made a few screenshots. I connected the location of Russian artillery and the Ukrainian camp with a ruler. Distance of 10km is exactly within the fire range. Then notice the direction of guns, the direction of explosions -- they are perfectly aligned with the ruler.

Google accidentally caught one of numerous situations when Russian military forces (not separatists as Putin insists!) shelled Ukrainian military from Russian territory. Not only confirms it again and again that Putin is cynical liar and Russia covertly kills hundreds and thousands of Ukrainians, but the total drama is that the Ukrainians couldn't fire back as it would immediately give Putin reasons to start uncovered military operation in Ukraine. Therefore Ukrainian soldiers died in that field, mercilessly killed by Russian army without even a chance of striking back. And Russian military officers ordered to fire while perfectly understanding that they wouldn't get any retaliation -- what a honor. Infamous bastards.

My room (#701) had very noisy air conditioning/heating unit which could NOT be turned off. At first, I couldn't believe that I have to sleep with this thing buzzing all night long -- it's like trying to sleep with working vacuum cleaner nearby. I called front desk but they confirmed that it can't be turned off. That was so ridiculous -- I couldn't believe it! No need to say that I had hard times trying to have a rest in this hotel. Awful experience.
