This is great news. If nothing else, there will finally be some competition for the AT&Ts, Verizons and Comcasts of this world....

In the U.S., Pichai announced Google’s plan to offer wireless service by licensing wireless networks from larger carriers as a mobile virtual network operator, or MVNO, to offer a service much like Virgin Mobile and MetroPCS.

Google is reportedly planning on supplementing its wireless phone service with Wi-Fi hotspots in areas where it offers Google Fiber. In what is shaping up to be a space race in Silicon Valley, Internet giant Facebook also has plans to offer Internet service through drones, as does SpaceX, according to CEO Elon Musk.
The atmospheric satellites will beam wireless Internet to areas without it, as well as to disaster-struck areas.

What happens when no one cares about truth vs. blatant lies on a certain cable propaganda channel? Anything goes. Here's a hilarious example of the incompetence at Fox:

[...] courtesy of terrorism “expert” Steven Emerson, who stated on Sunday that the British city of Birmingham was “totally Muslim” and that non-Muslims simply did not enter the city. Of course, this came as news to the roughly 80% of Brummies who are not Muslim.
Joe Muto: For some hosts and producers at a network that traffics in outrage and over-the-top, factually questionable claims, Steven Emerson is an irresistible guest

Worth a re-share from time to time
In light of recent outbreaks of measles and other vaccine preventable illnesses, and the refusal of anti-vaccination advocates to acknowledge the problem, I thought it was past time for this post. ...

A confused Sarah Palin appeared on Fox News this morning and blasted Islamic extremists for killing the cartoonists who draw the Charlie Brown comic strip. The Fox and Friends crew were baffled by Palin’s diatribe, until they realized she was mistaking Charlie Hebdo - the French satirical ...

Very cool. 3d model was emailed to space station, and immediately printed on-board. 
For the first time ever, hardware designed on the ground has been emailed to space to meet the needs of an astronaut. From a computer in California, Mike Chen of Made In Space and colleagues just 3D-printed a ratcheting socket wrench on the International Space Station.

Over the last few years there have been some incredible technological developments that are offering new hope for paralyzed patients. Electrical stimulation and nerve cell transplants have enabled individuals to regain movement in their legs, and even allowed them to stand or walk with a frame.

Vinyl grooves... It is so gratifying to see these pictures and read the explanations that go with them. One of the great mysteries of my life, finally resolved ;)
 
Vinyl Record Lovers Will Get This

Digital fans may shrug and go - Meh. But vinyl record lovers and collectors will see the flowing peaks and valleys representing sounds as reflections of art. The words "graceful" "ebullience" and "joy" will leap to the mind. Ah, vinyl. Those lush notes, those engulfing sounds, that deep warmth. Most assuredly not digital.

Yes +Alexander Bukh​ you are correct. Stepper motor time is required, although I suspect the model they have up there is probably faster than anything you and I can buy...

Amazing progress in direct brain-to-machine control

They implanted two microelectrode grids, just four millimeters in size, in a particular spot of the left motor cortex that is responsible for controlling movement of her right arm and hand. The grid contains 96 tiny contact points, each of which pick up firing signals from an individual neuron.
