#TheMartian movie lands humans on the Mars surface. We’re currently developing technology that will allow larger spacecraft to enter the Martian atmosphere and safely land humans on our real #JourneyToMars. Learn more: https://youtu.be/E3tYOINjIsA

Americans think immigrants used to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. That’s wrong.
If your ancestors came to the US in the late 1800s or early 1900s (or if you've talked to someone whose ancestors came then), you probably think of them this way: they came to the US with nothing but the clothes on their backs, worked hard in low-paying jobs, learned English, moved up the income ladder, and made sure their children could do just as well in life as anyone else's children.

But data from UCLA and Stanford researchers — with a big assist from Ancestry.com — shows the reality that many immigrants experienced might have been much more complicated, and much less in line with the American dream.

You learn something new every day - I didn't realize that at some level everything reacts to magenets.

Yet another reason I'm buying his book this week.
Unfortunately there is no app for innovation (although that would certainly be innovative). Until that’s developed, the best way we’ve found to foster it at Google is to create an environment where ideas can collide in new and interesting ways, and the good ones are given resources to grow.

One of the reasons that Google operates differently than other companies is that we haven’t tried to wall off innovation to one particular department or project. Everyone is encouraged to look for new ways of doing things, and successful pilots are quickly scaled.

I'm not qualified to try to hack their site but I give them credit for testing their theory.
+CloudFlare believes the Heartbleed OpenSSL vulnerability will not allow your private SSL keys to be compromised after all. While still dangerous, this would make Heartbleed not as dangerous as initially thought.

In two weeks of testing, the company has been unable to successfully access private keys with Heartbleed, suggesting the attack may not be possible at all.

CloudFlare is willing to put their research to the test in a pretty public way. Their service: https://www.cloudflarechallenge.com/heartbleed is unpatched and vulnerable. They're asking hackers and crackers from around the globe to try and compromise their private SSL key.

This will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Interesting comparison - my new HTC One M8 had 96% battery with full data and downloading updates and my 2 year old Samsung Galaxy Nexus had 85% remaining batter and the Nexus was in Airplane mode all day.

Swoon.  Very excited to get my hands on this and get a feel for it.  There's  a chance this will replace my aged, but loved, Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
