Will give it a chance, but doubt +Top Gear will ever be what it was - proven true already by the other Top Gear franchises done in other countries... all, ok but flat compared to the original. And to be clear, that's a sad thing. Arguably, this was the greatest long-running program on the BBC.
And so, we move on... maybe to +Netflix  where Clarkson would return... if rumors are true.
 
Big news! The BBC has announced that Chris Evans will front an all new line-up for the next series of Top Gear. All the details at the link
Some very exciting news for Top Gear fans as we announce our brand new host

photos.google.com is finally up for those that like to manage their photos on the ol' computer.
Of course, if you're on a device, make sure you have updated your Google Photos app.

Interesting - I thought flashing M would have factory reset my phone, but it didn't. On each startup, the OS just sputters and chokes on most of my previously installed apps. Removing each of them and installing again seems to cure that.

Knowing this however, I suggest to instead just plan to completely factory reset BEFORE flashing M-preview (this can take up to 1.5 hrs apparently - see below). This will help ensure a clean install.

Developer Preview Downloads... even if you are not a developer. ;)
http://developer.android.com/preview/download.html

About factor reseting - And for if you are worried that your device is taking forever to reset - my Nexus 5 took about 30 min, which is about 29.5 minutes longer than I expected... don't worry. It can apparently take up to 1.5hrs. Just plug it in and let it do it's thing.
The Android M Developer Preview has been announced, and now it's time to try it out on a device. After a little wait while the download links populated, you can now get to the Google Developers site and download an Android M factory image to flash onto a Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and even a Nexus Player. Before you get to downloading and flashing, be sure to remember that these...

Everyone that I've showed this frame to says that it looks like something different to each of them , so instead or prejudicing your imagination with a title I'm just going to tell you that it's a Long Horned Beetle shot at five times life size.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (@5x)+ a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on Kaiser adjustable flash shoes). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Technique: This one is really simple -it was just early in the morning and the beetle was lethargic, temperature around 16C. As always I'm looking for a magic angle that makes the most out of what little depth there is at high magnification. The background is a piece of blue plexiglass with some glossy photo paper behind it. #macro #macrophotography #macroaddict #macro4all #macromonday #canon #canonphotography #canonphotographers #canonusers #beetle #insect

If you are using Windows 7 (SP1) or newer, you will see a Windows 10 notification in the lower right notifications area of Windows task bar. It will be released to the wild at the end of July.

Reserve today, or within 1 year of it's official release and it will be a free upgrade and will install like any Windows update, with no loss of data. Personally, I will download an ISO and do a fresh install - an option that is also available.

Why update to Windows 10?
Let's pretend Windows 8 never happened. Windows 10 is so much better, they just skipped "9". I have used the preview version and it is a pleasure to use with some nice features. I do recommend you update, as support for Windows 7 has actually ended (January). Windows 10 support is indefinite and will no longer suffer the limited support-cycle of previous versions. I can't wait to update my Windows 8.1 laptop.

Ever wonder what it would look like to fly by a planet at the speed of light? Ride a photon from the Sun to beyond Jupiter in real time.
 
The Journey Light Takes from the Sun to Your Camera

Art director Alphonse Swinehart created a video showing, in real-time, the journey a photon takes when it leaves the surface of the Sun and begins traveling out of our solar system. When Earth is reached at around 8 minutes and 20 seconds, that’s the trip countless photons took before they ended up in our photos.
Did you know that when you capture a natural light photo, it took those photons about 8.3 minutes to travel from the Sun to your camera? Light feels like i

Seems to likely be coming from Google soon, in the US.
...this leak suggests will offer free calls and texts within the United States while charging for data on a per-gigabyte basis.
Essentially a Google App to replace your current mobile carrier.

Went here on the recommendation of Diners Drive-Ins and Dives. Shared the chicken and waffles and the BAT sandwich with my wife. Both were fantastic. It's good I don't live in the neighborhood, but can't wait to go back.

Went here on the recommendation of Diners Drive-Ins and Dives. Food was great, but will never forget the apple pie milkshake (vanilla ice-cream, milk and half slice of apple pie) - a great combination.

I have nothing bad to say about this wonderful place. The first time I brought my wife to Texas (from Montreal), my family insisted she had to try alligator. Who knew they had some... they did, and it tastes like chicken. That was in 2003 and Pappadeaux's has been a family favorite long before that. On my last visit in January 2013 I was overtaken by their Gulf Coast Oysters. Wow... they say everything is bigger in texas, but I had no idea. And quality of oysters, main courses and service was tops as usual. Can't wait to go back.

My multiple experiences there drove me to take my services to another dealer in Laval (Lauzon) - 15km further, where everyone was vastly more professional and courteous. I will NEVER again do business at Prestige Audi.
