Great example of how information can be presented in a way which draws viewers in, so they want to see more.  

It also helps that more skeptical viewers can probably relate to the video's main character, who didn't want to pay attention either!

Nicely done. People don't tend to want to pay attention - this is a nice creative change to help people to keep focused!

Watching the 50th Anniversary tribute to The Beatles' 1964 appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show on CBS (from 8:00pm to 10:30pm Eastern Time, Sunday night February 9).

They were the most influential band to ever arrive on the pop music scene, with their melodies, lyrics, instrumentation/arrangement and rock-star lifestyle leaving an indelible impression on the public and most artists who followed.

Just seeing how contemporary (2014) artists interpret their work is a reminder of how timeless it is.

How to set certain circles to NOT see what you share to "Your Circles".

On the Android Google+ app, this is set for each circle (as one of the circle's properties).  On a PC, it is found in the Settings screen, where you can select or unselect multiple Circles at a time.  Note that you need to uncheck a circle to exclude it from receiving posts to Your Circles.

Also note that if a person is listed in multiple circles, they still might see the content if ANY of those circles see content shared to Your Circles.

(It took me awhile to find this setting in the browser, so I wanted to share what I learned.  Thanks also to +Nobert Rittel for his post providing this information:  https://plus.google.com/+NorbertRittel/posts/RJV67PfwQxb  )

This is easier than going to Recent Tabs from the menu, and selecting items from the Recently Closed list.

Incidentally, the Reopen Closed Tab feature can can even re-open the previously-closed tab -- the one BEFORE the one you just closed.

Do you ever close a tab in Chrome and wish you hadn't?
Simply 'right click' and choose 'reopen closed tab' and you can do loads of other handy functions, including pinning a tab. If you didn't know, I thought you may like to :D

In the IT world, the unappetizing term "dogfooding" is used to describe when a company uses its own product to learn its strengths and limitations firsthand.  Although tech journalists don't build products, when they use them extensively, the experience enables them to provide their readers with more thorough reviews.

Overall, it sounds like the main problems experienced involved image manipulation and uploading and slow battery charging while powered-on.  While digital photography is a key part of trade-show coverage and other reporting, this might be less of an issue for people who use the devices primarily for content "consumption" like web browsing or more text-based activities.  The real keyboard even gave the Chromebook 11 an edge over tablet products.

Google's Project Tango aims to give devices an awareness of their (spatial) environment and surroundings. I can see this becoming useful in the next generation of autonomous vehicles (or even robot-sized messengers in the future), or in asisting disabled people with navigation and situational awareness.

For now, it would be useful even if it only performed the mundane task of learning the locations of roadway hazards like winter potholes, and helped drivers avoid them.

Besides being useful for job hunting, search strategies like the ones described here can also help you seek out information on a particular company's website.

Want a quick one-letter way to search your Chrome Bookmarks, Google Contacts, or Gmail messages from Google Chrome?

First, go to Chrome's settings, scroll down to "Search" and press the button for "Manage search engines...".

Second, when the list of search engines appear, scroll down until you see a row of textboxes where you can add your own.

Third, add the following "search engine" entries:

Each entry line has 3 fields:
1. a Description
2. a 1-letter Keyword Shortcut
3. a URL which tells Chrome to search the appropriate content.
You can choose what you want for the description and keyword shortcut, but the 3rd field (URL) is specific to the content being searched (bookmarks, contacts Gmail, etc).

Here are the 3 lines you should enter:

Chrome Bookmarks  b  chrome://bookmarks/?#q=%s

Contacts  c  https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?tab=wm#contacts/search/%s

Gmail  m  https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?tab=wm#search/%s

Finally, press the "Done" button.  Then, exit the settings screen and return to a regular Chrome page.

Now, to search your bookmarks, contacts or gmail messages, just type the corresponding keyword followed by what you are looking for into the Chrome search box.  

For example, to search your contacts for "John Smith", type "c John Smith". 

Any questions?  Let me know.
