I'm really liking the accuracy of this keyboard so far. It takes longer to write, though.
 
Google releases new Handwriting Input keyboard with support for 82 languages
Google has released a new handwriting keyboard for Android devices today, fittingly called "Google Handwriting Input." Google Handwriting Input works with devices running Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.3) and up, and supports input in both print and cursive writing in a pretty staggering 82 languages — presumably simplifying things from the current system of having separate Google keyboards...

An apple a day doesn't keep the doctor away.
In what's sure to be a blow to the fruit-industrial complex, a new research study has this week found no evidence to support the old proverb that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Investigating...

I attended this convention last year and will again this year.  Great on Gen Con for opposing legislation that allows business to discriminate.

+Gene Chiu Yeah, this year and from what I understand everything through 2020 is more or less secure, but beyond that it's in doubt due to the laws, and possibly 2018 and 19.

Personally though, I think Seattle's convention center and associated hotels aren't big enough to handle everything GenCon does. Last year I was in pretty much every other hotel in the neighborhood for one panel or event or another, and the hotels there all seemed to be using their ballroom and meeting room space to capacity.

Even though the science is clear, people still doubt it.
We live in an age when all manner of scientific knowledge--from climate change to vaccinations--faces furious opposition. Some even have doubts about the moon landing.

My wife left her iPhone at the mall today.  I managed to use the Find My iPhone service to activate Lost Mode.  I got a call back a few minutes later.  Someone turned it into the customer service desk at the mall.  Going to pick it up after work.

+Gene Chiu Ah! Well, it looks like good old Samsung moved that setting to a different place in the settings. Try following these (http://goo.gl/L9HCv3) instructions.

And religious as well. There isn't any response to this post that would be neutral unless one is speaking of the weather. It seems like civil rights and games do mix in the real world.

Google Now has failed me. I asked time this flight arrives in Vancouver from Hong Kong and it gives me the departure time from Vancouver to n New York instead.

I specifically asked when it arrives in Vancouver. I said nothing about when it leaves. The flight does continue onto New York, but I expect Google to know the difference between arriving in Vancouver and leaving Vancouver.

Great stand up routine on gun control.
 
Jefferies brilliantly and hilariously points out the absurdity of America's reaction to mass shootings as opposed to his native Australia.

This is interesting how they created the image of the black hole in the movie Interstellar.
Whether Interstellar was a good movie or not is still up for debate, but what seems certain now is that it led to some good science. Last year, Wired magazine explained how the visual effects team...
