It's like Uber for everything. It's wildly ambitious, brilliantly simple, and hardly works at all.

The letter S appears nowhere in the word "dollar", yet an S with a line through it ($) is unmistakably the dollar sign. But why an S? Why isn't the dollar sign something like a Đ (like the former South Vietnamese đồng, or the totally-not-a-joke-currency Dogecoin)?

HINT: Don't tell your kids that they are. More than three decades of research shows that a focus on “process”—not on intelligence or ability—is key to success in school and in life

Donc pour diminuer le réchauffement climatique il faut réchauffer l’atmosphère? Cela me semble en effet tout à fait judicieux! O_o

Using computational photography to take better pictures

As anybody who has tried to use a smartphone to photograph a dimly lit scene knows, the resulting pictures are often blurry or noisy. Equally frustrating are scenes where there is a large range of brightness levels, such as a family photo backlit by a bright sky; photographs will either come out with an overexposed sky (turning it white) or an underexposed family (turning them into silhouettes).

HDR+ is a feature in the Google Camera app for Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 that uses computational photography to help you take better pictures in these common situations. Learn how on the Research blog, linked below.

Settlers of Catan was perhaps the first board game I ever played that made me think board games were cool. The goal? To rule the fictional island of Cata
