My Collections, Ordered With Descriptions

Phew! So right now Collections don't have a spot for descriptions, nor ordering alphabetically. Here's a Collection of all my Collections ordered from A-Z with a short description of each one.

If you're still unfamiliar with Collections and how they work, you can check out my overview/tutorial on +TECHAERIS
http://techaeris.com/2015/05/04/google-collections-a-better-way-to-share-heres-how-to-use-them/

h/t +Gerwin Sturm for the idea, if you want to mirror this all you have to do is create a new Collection and then share each Collection to the new one and voila! Afterwards, you can share the new Collection to your PUBLIC circles and pin it on your profile for easy access.

TIP: uncheck the "People that have you in circles automatically follow this Collection" while you are filling it with other Collections. Once you're done, re-enable this (should prevent a flood of shared Collection posts in their streams).

Seriously, on what planet wouldn't a sitting PM participate in a televised election debate!!?
Canada’s broadcasters announced Thursday they have a tentative deal to host two leaders’ debates with the NDP, the Liberals, the Green Party and the Bloc Quebecois during the federal election campaign.

A coward is, as a coward does. Will you be hiding in the closet for these debates Mr Harper?

Just one more reason to add to the list to cut the cord!
After announcing a partnership with Hauppauge to bring an Xbox One TV tuner to U.S. and Canadian users last month, the Hauppauge TV Tuner for Xbox One is now available.

Wonder what else "Five Eyes" has their fingers in...
A new top-secret document shows that the "Five Eyes" intelligence agency alliance targeted weaknesses in a mobile phone browser and other smartphone apps.

+Stacey Bissell , yes... as a municipal employee, I am a huge fan of "non-identifying" photography. You can capture the mood and excitement of an event and show people having fun without invading anyone's privacy or making them uncomfortable.

I'm always aware, too, that there are people who have very good reason not to want to be seen online (such as women who've left abusive husbands) and I would hate to put anyone at risk.

Interested to see how this shakes out...
BBC's upcoming Grand Theft Auto documentary, titled Game Changer, may be in jeopardy as Take-Two Interactive has filed suit against the BBC over the show.

I think Samsung still makes the Rugby tough phone. It's a flip phone that can get wet, dropped, or stepped on, and it's a lot cheaper than a smartphone.

Great tip for removing dust spots from your images in post-processing.

This simple technique will make sure you clean all those nasty sensor spots off your photos, even the ones you won't notice with the naked eye.

In general I do need to keep a cleaner kit, that extends well beyond photography. :)

+Timothy Collins ya, doesn't matter how good a thing is (i.e. Sony Xperia Z3), shitty marketing is sure to kill it. Or at least not allow it to live up to its due potential.

Friendly staff, clean rooms. Stayed in the one bedroom + loft, nice and roomy with kitchen. Could have used heavier blankets and a new couch/sofa bed. Plenty to do with 2 pools, water slides and a huge indoor play centre for the kids. Oh, and could have used some parking enforcement as there were quite a few non-registered guests parking in registered guests spots meaning we had to park at the front and walk a bit of a distance to our room.

Great time, friendly guides and dogs. Both kids - 8 and 10 - got to drive the sleds as well and had an absolute blast. We did the 2h tour, tempted to take the 4h tour next time! Definitely worth it.
