Nothin like a small town Christmas Parade on a brisk but sunny southern California morning. Glendora.

Updated web interface for keep.

+Steve Eubanks Still no link from Apps folder on Gmail, or from Drive, but you could install the chrome extension for quick access.

Other needed feature is native sharing.
 
If you're making a list (and checking it twice!), it's now even easier with some new updates to Google Keep. Whether you’re at home on your desktop or out-and-about on your phone, Google Keep helps you stay on top of your growing list of holiday to-do’s. Today, we're refreshing Google Keep (keep.google.com) with updated looks, simple list reordering, and improved search so you can find any note on any device.

Get Google Keep on all your devices. Available at keep.google.com, on the Chrome Web Store (http://goo.gl/QKSKk), and on Google Play (http://goo.gl/4njyv).

+Dante Cordova I don't find myself using any.do anymore. But I can't say I use keep often either.

The organization model in any.do seemed lacking, in that I could sort by folder or by date, but not by both. So I didn't know how to segment say between work and personal. That and the sync between my phone, chrome extension and tablet was pretty buggy.

Now I find myself using Trello for work todos in a personal kanban flow.

Someone in France is thinking beyond economics. A #dayofrest is a cultural cure for chronic individualism.

"We live in an increasingly individualistic world where we sit in front of screens and have no time together," Fustec says. "So we need a framework with at least one day off that everyone can share."

"a collective day off is even more important in today's world where family links are weakening."

I picked the right day to wear my Android polo to work.

Just bought the Nexus 5 Black
Treat indeed.
 
Here's a Halloween treat: Today we're unwrapping KitKat (Android 4.4)—which delivers a smarter, more immersive Android experience to more people—and we're introducing the new Nexus 5 developed with LG, which is available today on +Google Play in 10 countries, and coming soon to retail stores. Find out more on our blog: http://g.co/vbej

+Becky Stramaglia and I are planning to get new phones for Christmas this year (going on 2 years with the GNex), and switch carriers most likely.  I'm thinking two Nexus 5's and a T-Mobile no-contract family plan is probably the direction we're gonna go...

We've just launched our reboot of the Emu Ranchers Kickstarter campaign! This time, it's all about publishing a REAL deck for face-to-face fun! If you're even slightly interested in family friendly card games, check out our project and consider backing us TODAY! If we can get a critical mass of backers on day one, we'll get an extra boost of promotion from Kickstarter. Thanks!

Since upgrading to the nexus 5 I've been impressed by three things. The screen, the speed, and the battery life.

I've never felt the great need on T-Mobile to rush to LTE because hspa+ in LA was pretty good. For the most part since getting this LTE device the speed had been similar (about 5-10 Mbps down). But today I was finally by a tower with full signal (in Walmart of all places) and got 33Mbps down. I would say in general the connectivity has been stable (not jumping back and forth between hspa) and latency good.

The combined experience makes Google Now voice interaction an impressive tool.

I had a similar speed test the other day. http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/649767347
Although I must say my battery is less than impressive. I can't get it to last a full day without charging it except for work days where it mostly just sits at my desk doing nothing.
The screen looks great, but brightness is all over the map, although that has been my experience with all Android devices. And as I already explained to you, it's too big for my tastes.
I left my haptic feedback on all weekend and never once experienced "crickets" so you probably got a defective unit.

Unboxed my nexus 5 last night. I can't get over the gorgeous display. +supercurio François Simond, the color correction wizard of custom rom fame, tested the color calibration and gave it a thumbs up. Been a long time since I was in supercurio irc working around the silly filesystem on the original galaxy nexus.

Nexus 5 display measurements in progress!

Gorilla Glass 3 surface is so slippery here that the colorimeter sensor tends to go away even on a reasonably flat surface ^^

Disciple of Christ. Husband of a virtuous and talented wife, Melissa, and father of Samuel—our bundle of answered prayer. Graduate student of theology. Professional geek by trade, serving as an IT Architect and Director of IT Engineering in the higher education space.

I don't post too much publicly. You can request to be a part of circles relating to some of my interests:
  • Christianity (occasional quotes, devotional reflections, or whatever I am presently studying or thinking about)
  • Geek (general tech stuff)
  • Android
  • Chromebook (I am an original Cr48 pilot user)
If I see that you share these interests, I will generally add you to those circles.


Peace

If you do not yet know God or have peace with him through Jesus Christ, I would be happy to point the way. This world and my life never made sense without him. Such basic questions as, "Who am I?", "Why am I here?", and "Why is there so much wrong with this world and will it get better?" do have answers.

Okay I wouldn't call it the best Pizza in California, but it is on my list… Carino's in La Jolla, Casa Bianca in Eagle Rock (LA), and now Giuseppe's in Pismo Beach. Thin crispy crust yet slightly doughy at the same time, perfect and plentiful sauce and a balanced amount flavorful cheese.

Chili verde burrito is among the best (green sauces seem to be their specialty). Chips are great, and they have quite a selection of soups including albondigas. Everything tasted fresh and is hot even to go. Have not seen it empty yet. Clean and friendly. Have not yet tried any asada dishes.

One of the better 100% hand wash places around here. Couple of notes: Owner is nice but smokes near one end of the waiting area, so if you are sensitive to that... Also there is no indoor waiting area with seating. Fortunately there are semi shady areas and you generally get nice breezes from the canyon.
