Reading between the lines is hangouts morphing into a Slack competitor? If so what's the point in Spaces. Google's messaging strategy it a total mess.

Can only agree. It's hard to be positive about their messaging strategy but in my optimistic moments I hope everything will soon switch to Allo/Duo and development will greatly accelerate. Not going to happen...

The UK government has publicly admitted that parts of the Investigatory Powers Bill (IPB), better known as the 'Snooper’s Charter', would allow it to force companies to ban end-to-end encryption.
The UK government has finally admitted that the wide-ranging powers over the digital world given to it by the Snooper's Charter would allow it to force companies into banning strong encryption.

The one thing I really miss since Google+ got broken up was all the Auto Awesome effects Google+ Photos offered. +Google Photos has not even half the tricks Google+ offered (or its been toned down and gets less involved). I loved how it would stick photos together to make a Panoramic. Google Photos can't or won't do this.

Google really doesn't have a clue what it's doing when it comes to messaging app. Unbelievable when you think about it. Hugh intellectual resources but unable to make a simple messaging service.

Can anyone tell me what the padlock means on the new Google Fit watch face? It does not seem to mean your phone or watch is locked. I can't find any setting related to it. #googlefit #androidwear

If it is the same as the Fit app on the phone you have to swipe the lock to get to the pause and stop buttons. So an attempt to stop you hitting them accidentally i suppose.

Visited for a monthly meeting we hold at the hotel. Staff always friendly, food is excellent, especially the cheese cake. Never stayed over so no idea what the rooms are like but for business meetings it's perfect.

Great market with lots of stalls selling lots of different foods. Had noodles at a noodle bar and they were pretty good and purchased some honeycomb from one of the vendors which was delicious.
