What do you think of this: Sony Australia says the A77II is “no longer in production”. | sonyalpharumors
http://www.sonyalpharumors.com/sony-australia-says-the-a77ii-is-no-longer-in-production/ #SonyA77ii  
Dear Jonathan, Good morning and thank you for your enquiry. I understand you want to purchase the A77 II (ILCA-77M2). Upon checking with our Sony Store, unfortunately this model is already discontinued and is no longer in production. As for the reason why it was discontinued, that information is ...

I understand the statement that Google Plus is becoming more of "interest-based social experience" focus. Talking about topics, activities, and interests like recipes, products, etc.  

What I want more information on is: "a Google Account will be all you’ll need to share content, communicate with contacts, create a YouTube channel and more, all across Google." 

Will this only be tracked by Google?
If so can you turn off the tracking?
Will you be able to connect your Google Plus account to this?  
Why would you create this account if you already had a Google Plus account?
What is the relationship to this new account and Google Plus Personal Profile?
How this will affect Google My Business accounts and review by Local Guides?
Is this still a one sign-in?
How do you think this will contribute to Google Voice / Google Now quality of information? 

Looking forward to hearing response.

I am meeting right now in a india restaurant (Kadhai) , having a hangout with a new friend in Bangladesh, Mahabub Hasan Munna introducing him to the daughter of the owner Emma Gomes that will be our translator Sunday.  She was born here but her family is all from Bangladesh. She understands it better then speaking Bengali 

I want to do this with Raleigh NC next if I can get a few people to join me on a hangout on-air.

A second generation family run hardware place with a little bit of everything and outstanding customer service. They've got hardware, they've got nuts and bolts, hard to find tools, big selection of Case knives. You have a pest problem they've got a solution. They've got lumber outback; just about everything you could need to fix repair or build.

I had never stopped in here till today. I love the quality of the Christian Science Monitor news and check it often. It is a lovely space like a mini library with info from the Christian Scientist and general bibles. All are welcome here and they are happy to tell you the history as well if you want.

2 mile circumference walk paint around the lake. Beautiful variety winding path with bridges and interesting views. The only drawback that's so many come right up to it on the right if you keep looking to the water side you won't notice it.

Came here to meet with a friend that lives in Apex for a morning business meeting on Sunday at 9:30AM. Excellent brunch, excellent service and they customize my dish to something that met my dietary needs. They have good wifi here.

They have a nice salad bar the only reason they lost stars is that they have almost all carbohydrates for the side hot bar.
