Why does Google Now need to make an actual search in order to let us add a reminder from the Search app buttons (Reminders > add reminder)? It is incredibly annoying when I want to do so when I don't have a good connection. The Add Reminder button is apparently just a shortcut to starting a Google search for "set reminder".

What would be useful to know, to write a Tasker-run script or something, is what Google's servers tell the phone to do once they get a search for "set reminder" and respond. That's the shortcut that would be nice to replace, without needing to ask Google what "set reminder" means every time and then letting it send the instructions back on what to do next.

Huge news 
Bloomberg is reporting that the Heartbleed bug, which shocked the web security community this week, has been known and actively exploited by the National Security Agency for at least two years....

Why not just an actual ladder at that point?

Yikes. Those are more like ladders than steps.

Mammatus Clouds over Nebraska

When do cloud bottoms appear like bubbles? Normally, cloud bottoms are flat. This is because moist warm air that rises and cools will condense into water droplets at a specific temperature, which usually corresponds to a very specific height. As water droplets grow, an opaque cloud forms. Under some conditions, however, cloud pockets can develop that contain large droplets of water or ice that fall into clear air as they evaporate. Such pockets may occur in turbulent air near a thunderstorm. Resulting mammatus clouds can appear especially dramatic if sunlit from the side. The mammatus clouds pictured above were photographed over Hastings, Nebraska during 2004 June.

The Small and Large Magellanic Clouds by +Cory Schmitz

Well, I don't know about you, but I don't recognize these objects in my skies. That's because they're not visible from here in Canada. But +Cory Schmitz is down in South Africa, and captured these stunning images of the Large and Small Magellanic clouds.

If you want to see more of Cory's work, you should check out his Flickr page too:
