Well... the good news is that WatchMaker seemed to run just fine on the M Preview.  However, I had a couple other issues.  Android Wear seemed flaky for me (kept crashing on the phone), but the worst was that "Ok Google" didn't work.  Some people seem to be able to get it working somewhat, but I couldn't... at all.  This may seem odd, but I literally use that on a daily basis, and losing that is simply too big of a sacrifice for a few months of early M goodness, so back to Lollipop I go.  Incidentally, yes, it was a clean boot, with a full wipe.  M seems pretty stable (compared to the L preview), but there are still some major gotchas, and it's definitely not ready for prime time... yet.

Back to the future
There's really only one thing I can say to this: WANT!

The hoverboard is obviously not "future technology" anymore. Canadian inventor Catalin Alexandru Duru's propeller-based hoverboard just managed to travel a total distance of 275.9 m (905 ft 2 in) to achieve a new Guinness World Records title for Farthest flight by a hoverboard.

Shut up and take my money!

Go +Sauber F1 Team​​, go!

As usual I can't watch today's #Formula1 race live, but I'm getting myself in the mood to watch the recording tonight by wearing my #SauberF1Team watch. It's my Moto 360 with a blue watch strap and my very own watch face design to show my support for Sauber.

Custom voice actions for Google Now
App developers can now implement their own voice commands for their apps.

This is quite a big step forward for Google's #VirtualAssistant. #VoiceActions are now open to all apps, meaning that the devs can create custom #VoiceCommands that work with #GoogleNow.

What custom commands would you like to see in your favourite apps?

Google today announced the ability to use custom voice actions with third party applications, allowing you to get things done much easier when using the Google search app. For now, custom voice actions are only compatible with a select number of partners, but the search giant plans to bring this functionality to more applications in the future. With custom voice actions, you'll be able to say things like 'Ok Google, listen to NPR', to start pl...

To be clear, Google announced custom voice actions for a very limited number of select applications. To my knowledge there is no API, and while I would love to integrate some voice functionality in my app (above and beyond the most simple commands already supported), I can't currently do that unless I were anointed as a friend of Google.

Past Decisions
I'm just watching an episode of one of my favourite TV shows, Castle, and something Richard Castle says to his daughter Alexis got me thinking.

You see, I'm in a pretty good section of my life right now. I have two absolutely amazing daughters who make me very proud. I have an intelligent and beautiful wife, a job that pays the mortgage and is fun at the same time. I have (almost) everything I'd wish for (isn't there always something else and isn't that what makes life fun?), but it wasn't always like that.

I've been through bad times too. Actually there was a time when I could've been called the black sheep in the family. When I look back at those times I often think how different my current life could be if I hadn't made those mistakes. And then, watching TV, this quote by Richard Castle comes along:

"One day you'll look back and you'll realise that every experience you ever had, every seeming mistake or blind alley was actually a straight line to who you were meant to be." ~ Richard Castle

Maybe this is not the deepest thought I've ever heard, but it gives me a sense of content, of belonging. Maybe if I had done only one thing differently in my past life, maybe even one of those decisions I'm least proud of, I might not have those two wonderful daughters now whom I love more than life itself. Maybe I wouldn't be with that wonderful wife who drives me mad at least once a day. Maybe my life would've turned out differently, but I doubt it'd have turned out better.

Italo Fontana U-Boat Flightdeck
My newest watch face made with +Inkscape​ and +WatchMaker​.

Since I'm trying to get the hang of G+ collections, let's add this post to the "My Watch Faces" collection. It's a recreation of the Italo Fontana U-Boat Flightdeck converted into a watch face for my Moto 360.

If you own a round Android Wear smart watch yourself you can download this watch face for free at my +FaceRepo​ account: . But first you'll need the +WatchMaker​ Premium app from the Play Store ( ) to install it on your watch.

Early cancer detection in our smart watches?
It's still early days, but Google has secured a patent that might just make a difference in the fight against cancer.

Still experimenting with "Collections" I wasn't right sure if I should put this in my "Future Technology" or my "Android Wear" collection. But since this technology is still far off I guess FT is the better fit.

A Wristband that Destroys Cancer Cells

Google has now secured a patent for a potentially cancer cell-destroying wrist-worn device. In combination with the magnetic nanoparticles in Google’s cancer-detecting pill, the device could generate its own magnetic field, allowing it to corral the particles, with targeted cells not far behind. The device will presumably offer a readout of just how cancer cell-saturated your blood is. Think of it like a wearable glucose monitor - only instead of sugar, it’s counting tumor cells.

Easily find 360° videos on YouTube

360° videos are a wonderful way to experience the scene as in real life. We all know the photosphere images that allow us to view a place from all angles. Now imagine that as a video.

Youtube now supports 360° vids and they're easy to find too. +Peggy K​ explains how. The only thing missing now is cardboard support.

Living on a sub-tropical island, enjoying the scenery.
Isn't Google+ just a wonderful thing? I'd have never guessed, when I started here in Summer 2011, that I'd have so much fun. Heck, I became addicted to this place, just like so many of you. So, if you'd like to join me on my trip, here some info about me.

➢ How I roll ...
One of the most important things you should know about how I make most of my G+ experience is, that (imho) interaction is the key. So, if you want to get into my circles, the only way is to interact and you'll soon move up on my Interaction Ladder.

➢ That's what I post about ...
Mainly G+ related stuff  like my Google+ Quick Tips or my How I  posts. I love helping Goobies (G+ newbies), but please don't mistake me for an expert! I'm just a normal guy who likes letting others participate in his learning process. 

I'm also pretty active in the Google+ Formula 1 community. I'm host of The Google+ Paddock Show (you'll find my F1 related posts there, rather than on my private profile), organise regular race hangouts, so F1 buffs don't have to watch the races alone and am moderator of the Official Sauber F1 Team Fan Community.

I also (though not that regularly) post about (future) technologies, Android and mobile topics, some funny stuff and good causes.

I have so called Targeted Circles (Notification Circles) set up for all of the above (and a few other things). They are opt-in only, so if you don't want to miss any posts let me know if you'd like to be in any of them!

➢ Find out more ...
So, there you have it. Quick and painless, which is not usually my way (as you will find out, when you read my posts). Of course there is so much more to me, but to find that out you'll have to ask me. Send me a PM or leave a comment at my posts. I'm immensely looking forward to getting to know you too.
Bragging rights
I taught myself to be a finswimming trainer to train my oldest daughter. She made it to "British Champion" of almost all categories and disciplines in that sport. I speak three languages (German, English and Spanish) in varying degrees of proficiency.

Rustikale Atmosphäre, lecker Essen, guter Preis. Was will man mehr?

This restaurant has it all. Great service and food and a wonderful atmosphere. We like to sit in the patio which is partly roofed, partly open to the skies (wonderful for a warm summer night). The food is excellent, especially the fresh fish.

We found this place via Google Local and though the décor is fantastic, the rest is rather poor, though that is due to the fact that this is not a typical restaurant but a "Guachinche". For those not familiar with Tenerife here a quick explanation what a guachinche is. Guachinches are sort of seasonal restaurants. Once unregulated, they are now bound by certain laws. They should only open for three consecutive months, offer a maximum of three dishes (none of which should be dessert or fruit) and serve only their own wine – they aren’t even allowed to serve beer, coffee or tea but they can sell water and one alcohol free beverage. In return for these limitations guachinches get certain tax reductions. The problem with this particular guachinche is, that it sticks meticulously to the rules. I've never seen a guanchinche do that. Wherever you go in Tenerife you get all kinds of drinks, deserts and food in a guanchinche. Not so here. We were offered salted fish, t-bone steak and "garbanzas" (chick peas) for lunch and either wine, seven-up or water. There was no desert whatsoever. The food was edible, but nothing to write home about. It was nice to go and see the place once (it is really quite beautiful), but we won't return.

The first time we went to eat in this fabulous restaurant was about 15 years ago. We enjoyed it so much we came back the following night. Since then we've never been disappointed once. This is one of the best restaurants in Puerto de la Cruz. Everything is top notch. Excellent food, a fantastic atmosphere in an old Canarian town house and the friendly and professional service make every visit an event to remember. And considering how good it is, the prices are also surprisingly reasonable.

This is one of the more enjoyable experiences in Canarian and Spanish cuisine in Puerto de la Cruz. There are restaurants with better food around and there are cheaper restaurants around, but if you are looking for the perfect value for money you are in the right place. The service is extremely friendly and professional and the food is really good. I especially recommend the fresh fish.

We've walked past that restaurant several times, always wanting to try it out. We finally did and are glad for it. We had fresh fish and it was wonderful, filleted for us by one of the waiters at the table. What I didn't like was the fact that there were many more economic meals advertised in the menu outside the restaurant which were not available once seated. The waiter then pitches you toward the more expensive fresh fish. That is why the service only got a "Good" rating from me though the waiter was friendly enough and very knowledgeable. The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere though there is not much of a view. Since it is situated in the harbour of Los Cristianos it is a good place to go and eat after/before a stroll along the beach. Harbour-style decoration makes this a nice place to sit down and eat.

This is one of the top restaurants in Tenerife. All their food is to die for, but their speciality is smoked fish. They have their own smokery and really know their stuff. The service is extremely friendly and professional with the owner-chef checking in on his guests personally when time permits. The atmosphere is rustic and cosy inside with large terraces outside set in a park like plot. I like my food and though I'm no expert I know excellence when I see it (erm, taste it). There are few restaurants (especially in Tenerife) as perfect as Casa Juan. A bit on the pricey side, but worth every cent.
