Two full days of the city being closed. Driving ban. Parking ban. And yet the best the city can do is gently push the snow aside, leaving it on the road. We wouldn't want to hurt its feelings by actually plowing, would we?

Major roadways are reduced by 2-3 lanes. An ambulance couldn't get through for several minutes on Boylston this morning because we (poor unfortunate souls trying to drive through downtown) were so tightly packed in our snowy grave there was nowhere to move the car.

“I am confident that our roads are safe and drivable" (Mayor Walsh, yesterday). Yeah, right.

That's right. Move the fireworks/ festivities to a WORK day and close major roadways out of the city.  

Wicked smaaaht, Boston.  You  never learn.

Excellent responses to a lot of alarmist FUD that Microsoft (and others) have been stirring up about the changes to Google's privacy policy changes.

American trolls aren't much better. These days any article regardless of subject somehow turns into whatever negative stuff being described in it being Obama's fault. I have a distinct feeling that most of the audience of Fox News are retired geezers with nothing better to do then regurgitate the crap they just heard on every Internet forum available. It's also the main reason for why Fox is killing everyone in ratings which they like to brag about so much. People who disagree with their opinions actually have shit to do.

What's the easiest way to make my Picasaweb album viewable/scrollable OFFLINE in my Android tablet's (Transformer Prime TF201) gallery?

I tried exporting the album to both Dropbox and Google Drive, but I can't figure out where to go from there. I suppose I can select photos individually for downloading, then move them to another folder in File Manager. Isn't there a more efficient way?

Thanks!

:) I don't think I explained it well. The files are downloaded; but they (or the folder that contains them) do not automatically appear in gallery view (I have to launch them from 'File Manager').

Back when I first got the tablet, it automatically downloaded my picasa albums, gallery view, where they are easily scrollable and identifiable by folders. Why won't it do the same thing for my NEW albums? :)

Where could I buy this? Or something similar? This one is custom-made.

As I was driving home, NPR news produced a clip of Zuckerberg speaking at Harvard today. I had no idea what the guy's voice sounded like (or that he had a voice, for that matter). For a moment there, I thought I was listening to Bill Gates. Maybe, the voice isn't exactly the same, but the whole I'm-so-uncomfortable-to-be-speaking-in-public guttural reverberation was spot on. Wow!

+Oleg Kofman You are assuming things, my friend. I'm completely against drinking any kool-aid not only when it comes to Google, but anything. I base my opinion solely on facts & in this case I think I have access to more of them than you do.

Based on that I can tell you that the "Do no evil" slogan is not ridiculous at all & Google still bends over backwards to adhere to it. It's the most idealistic company I've ever been at by far. You can choose to not believe it & poopoo the idealistic principle it's build upon, but they take it extremely seriously.

I'll give you one example without disclosing anything I shouldn't. We have this product that competes with some other major websites & right now is nowhere near as used, right? So if we were as you think we could easily promote it by giving it preference over competing products. That's what any other company would most likely do. However, our search guardians won't let us do that. There's actually an excellent business reason for it. Google is the #1 search engine because of its credibility. Anything that would jeopardize it would jeopardize it as a company.

So any conspiracy theories about Google's bias when it comes to search results belongs in the trash bin & the people who believe it are the ones drinking the kool-aid. For example, some crazy conservatives who believe that Google's search results have a liberal bias despite the fact that it's very easy to see that that's a load of horseshit.

Your last complaint about online advertising is completely ludicrous. Online advertising is no different from any other. Yeah, we all hate it, but it's part of life in a capitalist economy. Blaming Google for it is like blaming TV/radio networks for running commercials. Same goes for any other media (magazines, newspapers, etc). Oh, and the last time I checked Microsoft's Bing was not ad free :)

Fun old-fashioned experience with friendly staff. Clearly exceptionally customer-oriented and a terrific value for the money: a variety of activities with virtually no lines or waiting. The new water coaster attraction was a big hit with the kids. At the Peppermint Saloon, right on the premises, not only do they serve up heavenly sundaes, but they also take the best care of customers with allergies I've ever seen in an eating establishment.
