It’s more than a century since the world’s most famous literary detective made his appearance, but our appetite for his startling deductions is undiminished. Adam Frost and Jim Kynvin go back to the stories in search of data to explain his enduring appeal
Good read on the (tiresome) topic of Apple vs. Google.
I personally have a lot of time for Apple seemingly taking a strong stand for user privacy. But I do agree that their position feels somewhat convenient given they still seem hopelessly outmatched compared to Google when it comes to services, data crunching and the like.
And I also agree there's every chance Apple will have to walk their position back to some degree at some point (likely as a fully anonymized and opt-in way).
$10 for 4 of the most exciting and enjoyable books you will read? Seems like a no-brainer to me. The first one is $0.99 right now. If you buy it and don't enjoy it, I will send you $1.00 through Google Wallet. So either you read and enjoy an amazing piece of literature or you make a penny. You can't go wrong.
my wish list for waze: - a way to shut off the "are you on your way to work" prompt every morning that I start it up on my commute. I use Google Maps to route around traffic, I don't need another app butting in. It's hard to beat Google Now's "you better leave in 10 minutes because of traffic" - a better UI... the existing one is pretty dated by Material standards. I figured this would have happened soon after the acquisition.
