If you follow the stock market or news in general, you know that 2016 has opened up rough for those used to consistent gains. At the beginning of this year, I set up a fantasy stock market contest with a few friends, and in near real-time, we're seeing our virtual portfolios rise and fall, and competing with one another - all by leveraging Google Finance and a shared Google spreadsheet. It's never been more fun to watch all of us lose money. Here's how to set yours up.
You might have seen 's post about this year's Android mini collectible for the 2016 Chinese New Year. (http://www.deadzebra.com/android/2016-chinese-new-year-android/) I just managed to snag a few for me, and they'll be taking space on the shelves at home where they belong. Nice bright red colors on this one.
reminded me of that trip earlier today, and to be honest, what I'm most struck by, aside from their reaction, is that I don't think their room or carpet have ever been this clean since. /cc
Also, not all content I've done in the past is in Google Photos... for example, tweets, blog posts, etc.

At Google, when we have issues with our laptops, tablets or phones, we have excellent colleagues trained to make things work again, and dedicated spaces, called Tech Stop. Google's famous for its cafes, yes, but smart geniuses at Tech Stop are even better. This special edition Android figurine showcases the Tech Stop employee with a zipup jacket and mandatory Ethernet cable.
For fun, you can see a deleted "Tech Stop" scene from The Internship:

This little fig looks to respect and protect, and comes with its own laptop and flashlight. I feel safer just knowing this droid exists.
"Pixel C is designed from the ground up alongside its keyboard,, so you can switch in an instant between swiping and typing. Plus, the screen adjusts to different angles, so you can work or watch comfortably wherever you want."
It's Girl Scout cookie season. And, like last year, our home is the cookie cupboard for the area, so the truck arrived with all our pallets, and now we are overflowing with Thin Mints, Trefoils, Do-si-Dos, Savvanah Smiles and Tagalogs. Our daughter, as part of her troop, is selling the cookies, and for the first time, you can order online.
Otherwise, I have to eat all these, and nobody (except me) wants that.
"... it was no surprise that when Google announced in June of 2014 that it had built a virtual reality headset almost entirely of cardboard, many people thought it was another of the company’s gags—if several months delayed. The project, dubbed Google Cardboard, has been anything but a joke. On Jan. 27, Google will announce that 5 million Cardboard have shipped."

"For most people, new ideas and perspectives make us uncomfortable. It’s easier and less taxing to surround ourselves with people who agree with our worldview, and reinforce our way of thinking, to make us believe we are correct. We self-select our communities, both in the physical world, and the online space, and these friends or peers become an extension of our own identity.
A byproduct of this selection process is that our communities end up looking a lot like us and behaving like us."

"'It's a tidal wave: Chrome is the clear U.S. market leader now,' says Mike Fisher, associate director of education technology at Futuresource. He says districts are drawn to the Chromebook’s Web-based operating system, ease of use, IT manageability and $200 to $300 price range."
The owners appeared physically unharmed, but they likely lost much of the home. Not sure on the cause, but firefighters smashed the roof to extinguish the flames and it didn't spread to any neighboring structures.
