A: Wanna get lunch?
B: Sure, let's go to Sam's.
A: Okay. Wanna take a shortcut & fly over the park?
B: Nah. It gets me all sweaty. I'll drive.

Nigerian scammers get a space program

The latest scam email out of Nigeria involves a Nigerian astronaut stuck in space who needs millions of dollars to return home.

This is awesome:

This one apparently dates back as far as 2004! (says Google)

Welcome to X, the moonshot factory!

Starting today, this is the place for all the latest updates on X projects and teams. Our new website, www.solveforx.com, has even more pictures, videos, and behind-the-scenes peeks at X.

“Hey!” You might say. “Aren’t you Google[x]? What happened to the Google? And the brackets?”

Well, Google[x] is now simply X, a part of Alphabet. Though we have a new name, our mission hasn’t changed: invent and launch “moonshot” technologies that we hope could someday make the world a radically better place for millions, or even billions, of people.

Our projects are designed to have the riskiness and ambition of early stage research and the focus and speed of a startup—+Project Loon, +Makani, and +Google Self-Driving Car Project are a few examples of what we’re up to. Our goal is to develop and de-risk these early stage ideas and turn them into proven technologies that make a real impact in the world—and create successful businesses along the way.

You'll also find information on this page about We Solve For X, our global community. We Solve for X (previously known as Solve for X) aims to bring together moonshot thinkers from all over the world to collaborate with each other on new ideas that have the potential to solve big global problems facing humanity.

Stay tuned—we’ll post updates here from time to time as projects move from the seemingly impossible to this-looks-like-it-just-might-work.

Whatever Sony's Portable Ultra Short Throw Projector lacks in innovation, it makes up for in design.

Deep learning is more accessible than you might think. +Research at Google and +Udacity just launched a free, three-month course on the subject. You’ll get acquainted with #deeplearning tools and problems, and implement what you’ve learned using #TensorFlow. https://goo.gl/sEhxEx

Remember when Microsoft Windows couldn't connect to the Internet without buying additional software which worked terribly? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

OECD doesn't seem to have the data and Forbes maybe stretched the headline. Checked OECD's website.
