I'm a Google fan, and I use most of their products. You might even call me a few Google apologist.

But their story on messaging has been nothing short of an utter disaster. I've lost count of all the messaging platforms they have launched and abandoned. Then, when after Google I/O this year, they seemed to be consolidating towards a single product vision, they go and do this.

What the are you doing Google? Allo is a the least useful chat product I have ever seen. The one single feature that is actually interesting, the smart assistant, has absolutely nothing to do with chat.

The article was good, and it did lead me to the conclusion that Allo really isn't meant to be a chat platform. It's supposed to be a commandline interface to Google and the Internet as a whole. This is great for people who are limited to low bandwidth and whose only interface to the Internet is a phone, but it isn't for me, and it isn't for most of the "developed" world.

Google has the best cross-platform communications platform, Hangouts. Their current messaging makes it seem as Google is yet again on the verge of throwing away something really great because it doesn't fit in their ever-changing vision this month.

My philosophy: if there's not enough chili to kill the germs, don't eat it.

This is not fog. It's the haze coming from Indonesia. It was even worse this morning

My wife shot this timelapse on my phone. View from the hotel in Hong Kong, as a rainstorm was moving in.

The video was taken using the application "Timelapse Video". We were also using Samsung's built-in timelapse application on my wife's phone, but it produces videos in much lower resolution, so I wouldn't recommend it.
