Apparently it is a painting. "The Venice of the North" (aka Bruges, Belgium) by Evgeny Lushpin: http://lushpin.com/works/0/all/all?page=15

Much easier to tell from the PC.

+João Dias I put together a number of Yatse AutoShare intents to add to the existing Voice Command one on the AutoShare Intents page. It would be great if you could add these to the list so other users could benefit from them:

Lol......you must have been real tentative about checking your messages when you got back +João Dias.

As far as AutoXBMC I am trying these intents but still looking forward to you releasing your own app for it.
Ive been holding off buying the Yatse Unlocker :D

Is there a way to have Yatse automatically perform background synchronization of the database? I enjoy using the Yatse Voice commands, but if I don't open Yatse between voice commands my database ends up being outdated. So when I say something like "Play the next episode of [FavoriteShow]" Yatse uses it's outdated local cache and plays an episode I have already seen.

That sounds about right, I only have one XBMC install that I care to have a synced DB for. My profile basically just checks if I'm on the right WiFi network and then calls the "org.leetzone.android.yatsewidget.ACTION_MEDIA_SYNC" intent. This will sync absolutely everything which works well for me because it's possible a show and/or movie have been added to my library in the past 24 hours.

Not sure how I missed this, but Google Search 3.5.14 added "OK Google" hotword detection from anywhere. No matter if you are in Chrome, your favorite game, the lockscreen, or have the screen off (and the phone charging), you can access your OK Google hotword.

This is particularly excellent for users of AutoVoice as we can have custom voice actions from anywhere.

Instructions:
Open Google Now, scroll to the bottom and tap Menu>Settings>Voice>”Ok Google” Detection and enable the settings you want.
Google Search 3.5.14 is beginning to rollout with a couple of major enhancements. First, Google is allowing users to enable the “OK, Google” hotword to be said from anywhere on the phone to prompt a voice search. So rather than having to be on your home screen, you can now be in Chrome or ...

After 30 miles of back road driving in Croatia, I was happy to see a toll road!

The tollway was actually pretty nice. Check out the post linked below for a hyperlapse showing the toll road and another showing the last part of the drive into Split.

I am very excited about the integration of Google Voice into Hangouts... I've been (im)patiently waiting for this to come!
 
google voice calling, sms and voicemail—now available in hangouts

earlier today we announced free voice calls from hangouts, making it easy and affordable to keep in touch with loved ones (http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2014/09/call-me-maybe-introducing-free-voice.html). but that’s not all :) our update also includes some improvements for our passionate (and patient) google voice users:

1. calling. when you call someone from hangouts, it’ll now come from your google voice number. and when someone calls you, you can answer from hangouts too.

2. sms. you can now send and receive your google voice sms messages from the hangouts app.

3. voicemail. google voice voicemails can now appear in hangouts as part of your ongoing conversations. either read the transcriptions, or play them inline!

these features will be activated a few days after we complete today’s rollout. so grab the new version of hangouts when it’s available (v2.3, http://goo.gl/v7FTL), and install the accompanying dialer to turn on voice calls (http://goo.gl/tRaJpm). ios only supports google voice calling for now, but sms and voicemail support are coming soon.

hangouts remains the future of google voice (http://goo.gl/WVVFN0), so we’re going to keep bringing the most-loved google voice features into the core hangouts experience. (don’t worry: your google voice number won't change.) in the meantime make a free call on us, and enjoy today’s updates!

Damn you, IE.
 
I heard you want to be a web developer. Here are a few devices to test your site. And at the end IE ruins everything!
