And if this surprises you some how you clearly haven't been paying attention!

Well said Google.
 
The Internet allows journalists and writers to communicate critical information freely around the world. Yet in many countries, this right to share videos, blogs and other news online is threatened by laws that censor and, in some cases, criminalize free speech. On World Press Freedom Day, Google and UNESCO join forces in calling for an Internet that respects human rights, including and especially the right to free expression.

Wow. "Spirit of an adventurer; soul of an engineer" sound like words to live by. Seems there's probably a lot we could all learn from Google's Dan Fredinburg who as it has been widely reported was caught in the Mt. Everest avalanche caused by the Nepal earthquake and did not make it. Clearly though the story should not be that but how he lived his live to the fullest in the 33 years he had. Makes you think. Thoughts to those who knew him directly.

The Google engineer built an incredible life of adventure and service.

Interesting findings of the infamous mid-life crisis. A friend of mine once remarked that you just kinda have to ride out your 30s, maybe there's some truth to that actually.
Fortunately, satisfaction returns in your 60s.

As I said on Twitter this is pretty wild and a must watch! Not something you see everyday! And we hope works, but is never used!
 
Missed this morning's SpaceX Pad Abort Test or want to watch it again? Here it is.

SpaceX controllers will pour over the telemetry and other data recorded during today's test to evaluate the launch abort system and SuperDraco engines. NASA's Commercial Crew Program experts also will help evaluate the results as the development of one of the new generation of American spacecraft continues on pace.

The Crew Dragon is designed to carry astronauts to the International Space Station. The ability to abort from a launch or pad emergency and safely push the crew out of harm's way is a critical element for NASA's next generation of crewed spacecraft to the space station.

I mean this probably means another few months for VZ beyond the Pure rollout but still some news is better than none.

This IS the Android Weather App you've been looking for!

A few weeks a back a friend of mine showed me the app DarkSky for iOS! It is of course a very well designed and beautiful app from a UI perspective. What might be even more impressive though is the backend that power it http://forecast.io which is an weather API.  That allows you to receive plain english reports like "Clear for the next hour." Up to this point I hadn't really found a weather app on the Android side to match it. Until "The Weather Timeline." I highlight recommend you give it a try. From a UX perspective it rivals anything I've seen out there and is a love-letter to Google's new Material aesthetic.

Been seeing lots of issues lately with +Motorola Mobility +Android Wear #Moto360. Feels like some combination of +Google Play Services 7.3 and the new Android Wear App 1.1.  Often I'll just get notifications on the phone but the watch and app will say "Connected" a toggle of Bluetooth or in the Wear app usually fixes it.  Perhaps 5.1 on both would help? Any word on 5.1 for the MotoX Gen 2? I know it is headed to the Gen 1 soon. I'm still overall happy with both devices and the ecosystem.
