Fixing the issue that Moscone Center West still is no proper location in Google Maps for my timeline ;)

The new Google Maps app for Android comes with some nice changes concerning your location history.

You can now easily edit wrong locations in your "timeline" and even create new private places. Now Google will hopefully no longer think I'm sitting in some random restaurant all evening, just because it's the next place it found to our garden ;)

I wonder if fixing the location history that way will also fix the messed up locations that sometimes appear in auto-generated stories on Google Photos (cc +Allen Firstenberg)

Photos Search - Cow
as per +Allen Firstenberg, https://goo.gl/YrYp5u

Many different kinds of cows, or bovines, or bovides, or... well we have to go back all the way to Laurasiatheria because some horses found their way in there as well (at least not all the way to mammals) ;)

I was also a little surprised that I had matching photos from several different countries in there, starting from Austria, via the zoo in Amsterdam and the highlands of Scotland all the way to the Galapagos islands.

While working on a new Chrome App using Polymer (details of which shall remain secret for now) I was looking for a way to save me from the repetitive task of code/build/reload/code/build/reload/...

Here's the approach I found to work for me, since the way Polymer Starter Kit works with Browsersync, doesn't quite work for Chrome Apps.

Things are heating up in the Endgame world... a real challenge this time :)
We knew this day was coming. The time for training has ended, and I need your help with a real challenge. No points. This is real life. This is no longer a game.  It's time to start our offensive. I get the feeling my cheeky jab caught dear-old-dad off guard, and we need to hit him where it hurts while his defenses are down. To do that, we need a plan. To plan, we need something we don't have.  And I need you to find it for me. Should be in an un...

Following the idea of (and as requested by) +Allen Firstenberg [1] here's what Google thinks should be considered breakfast in my photos (a small selection).

Most of the photos are actually food, even though most weren't eaten as breakfast (but I wouldn't mind having those things for breakfast, not very picky that way). My breakfast mostly isn't very photo-worthy (unless on vacation) so it's understandable not to have many actual breakfast photos in there.

And then there are some complete misses, like some Origami models, or volcanic rocks from the Galapagos islands.

As a side-note for Allen: my one photo of waffles is also the only one I get when searching for waffles.
