Teasing -- sounds v interesting
 
Inspired by my recent work in the last 4 months that I can't talk about publicly yet:
- Machine learning is pretty cool.
- Machine learning with data is pretty darn cool.
- Machine learning with big data is really cool.
- Machine learning that actually does inference and generalization with big data is super cool.
- Machine learning that actually generalizes big data, and has application in recommendation or end-user applications and keep me up at night because I want to do more programming so that I can see it in a real product ASAP, is beyond cool.

:)  Yes, I like working at Google-scale.

Useful!
 
The photos from your phone, now one click away

Unless you’re a budding Ansel Adams, odds are you take most of your photos using your phone. And whether it’s photos of your hiking trip or a night out, sending photos to friends and family just got easier. Starting today, you can save time and insert your Auto Backup photos from your phone into Gmail messages on the web using the new Insert Photo button: https://goo.gl/hXpcWl

Seems like The Star missed the bit where I said:

"Though the first of its kind in this part of the world, I’m skeptical of the multi-country appeal of the offering. I doubt there are many readers so interested in the affairs of their neighboring countries that they would want to read an overseas paper. However, the consolidation might make it easier to lure advertisers, who, in Southeast Asia, are shifting increasing portions of their budget to digital initiatives."

Great read

Ben is my new favorite tech pundit -- particularly since he is acutely aware of trends in Asia
There may be a certain financial sense in buying Oculus, but to me it suggests that Mark Zuckerberg still doesn't understand why mobile matters.
