Pretty cool use for Wear.
 
Watch your language. Literally.

Speak into your watch and flip it over. The person you’re talking to can read what you said in their language, and respond in kind. The latest software update for Android Wear has Google Translate built in, so unless you speak 44 languages, your wrist can now speak more languages than your mouth.

Been on it since July 22nd. So far I like it. Ground floor helping make it better is always cool. Best part is, it actually uses all 4 big networks for cell service(VZW and ATT if you have ZERO of TMO and Sprint) from what some are saying. I recommend using the app phono to see what carrier and band you are on. helps with bug reporting...etc.

And now Hangouts stands alone.  This was portended, I think, the other day with the 4.0 update, when G+ contact integration broke.
 
We are launching another way to use Hangouts today.  From our new site you'll be able to take advantage of the best of Hangouts in the browser, along with an inspiring image to get you through the day. Check it out and let us know what you think.

The barista swiped my card, and was handing it back when I got this notification.

I would too, but I suspect far more (local) banks on board would be required for critical mass consumer adoption.

Google Photos' Best Feature
I just discovered this.  Since the decoupling of Google Photos from Google+, not only does it allow you to share photos beyond G+ to other social networks, it allows you to get a link to share.

Unlike previously, you can share these photos without adding them to an album first.  You can even select and share photos that are a subset of an album, but the best thing is that link.

That link doesn't require you to have a Google account.  It doesn't require you to login at all.  And from it, you can not only view those photos, but there is a button in the upper left to "Download all", making Google Photos, in my opinion, the best way to share your photos, where the people you are sharing them with may want to save them and do what they will with them.

Shutdownify is shutting down. "'Shutdown Notice as a Service' startup will cease operations by year's end." "It is a stinging irony that we now must use our own product to post this shutdown notice."

I had to contact +Sonos today because I was having trouble getting my system to update.  Their support was phenomenal!  No waiting on hold, and the rep, Matt M., was knowledgeable, really nice, and resolved my issue easily.

This was a a great experience in the wake of so many miserable ones with other companies.

I'm happy to read this. We have a few Sonos units at home and we love them. It would be tragic if such a great product failed due to bad customer service.

I left my bike on a rack for 90 minutes, and this happened. Maybe someone doesn't like Minneapolis being known as a bike-friendly city. :(

I don't feed trolls. I burn them.
Introduction
I love disruptive technology, not just what's hot, but that which is truly revolutionary.  That is left intentionally broad-brushed.  Technology should make our jobs easier, our efforts more effective, and give us more time to enjoy life.  So I post publicly about technology, privacy, and the occasional red herring.

I work with storage, mobile, and "cloud", and tend not to dwell on one thing too much when something better comes along.
Bragging rights
I can walk talk and chew gum, but not text and drive.

Rude! They don't seem to want walk-in business. Go elsewhere.

The free move-in truck rental is very nice to have, but can be a little difficult to schedule. Melissa was very helpful resolving truck scheduling.

Every time I have used or attempted to use their online service to send money, it is at least a 30-60 minute ordeal or not being to log in with the password I know is correct, resetting the password and the new password still not allowing me to login, finally getting through to the point where you submit a transfer, and being kicked back to the login prompt. If you want to have an extremly maddening experience, by all means, use Moneygram. Moneygram should just remove their horrendous attempt at an online service. They mujst make all oftheir money from phone and in-store transfers, because they seem to do everything in their power to prevent you from actually sending money onilne.

The veterinarians and technicians at CVVC are awesome. They clearly love animals, love what they do, and provide the best care.

This clinic has welcoming offices and friendly, helpful staff. We generally get right into a room for appointments, and their pediatrics staff is amazing.

I have always been very satisfied with my service at Luther Hopkins Honda, and my latest visit is no exception. They do good work, they're friendly, and don't push unnecessary services.
