New camera software for late-model Android devices, shu-weet!
 
Today we’re launching Google Camera, a new app for your Android phone or tablet that makes it easy to take quick photos and videos. And being behind the lens just got more fun with new creative picture modes.

Sleek Design. The 100% viewfinder gets out of your way while capturing the maximum resolution of the scene (no dropped pixels). And the extra large capture button is easy to press so your eyes never lose sight of the subject.

Lens Blur. Emphasize the subject while blurring the background for an SLR-like shot with shallow depth-of-field (or bokeh). You can even change the subject in focus after taking the shot.

Improved Panorama. New higher resolution panoramas capture the full width and detail of a scene.

Photo Sphere. Immersive 360 degree photo spheres let you look up, down and all around...now at up to 50 megapixels! For the first time available on non-Nexus devices.

Google Camera is now available on the Play store (http://goo.gl/llsZjx), and works on all phones and tablets running Android 4.4+ KitKat. We’re just getting started, and in the months ahead we'll make Google Camera available to more devices, helping make photography easier, faster and more fun.

Check out our Research Blog to learn more (http://goo.gl/lUDfi8).

Facebook, Whatsapp, Viber - what is sucking battery life on your smartphone...

(oh, and those 'optimizer' apps? Garbage. If they did anything good their functionality would have been built-in, by Google or the handset manufacturer.)

Geeky - USB considered unsafe at any speed #threat #usb #itsatrap
Computer users pass around USB sticks like silicon business cards. Although we know they often carry malware infections, we depend on antivirus scans and the occasional reformatting to keep our thumbdrives from becoming the carrier for the next digital epidemic. But the security problems with USB devices run deeper than you think: Their risk isn’t…

Cranky. Opinionated. Geeky. Talks really, really, fast. Knows more useless information then anyone should. Carries more cellphones on him then anyone should. Flirty. Dirty minded. Huuuuge ego. Doesn't like raw tomatos but loves gazpacho & salsa so not so big on always being consistant. Well intentioned.

The food is fine - the ordering process is obnoxious & annoying. The menu items are displayed on flat screen TVs that suffer from window glare. Then one *must* wait in line to use the single station automated ordering system. They defend it, and maybe it works for the staff, but for customers it's a pain, particularly when stuck behind someone confused by the chimp-like point-at-pictures system. If somehow they survive to franchise (unlikely) the order overkill might be useful. For now the hassle just encourages me to not waste my time. There are several other good Thai restaurants nearby that aren't so pointlessly precious. IN RESPONSE You know what would be efficient, and respectful, of the customer? If the clerk walking people through your obnoxious ordering system JUST TOOK THE ORDER. Like successful places do. Instead, thanks, no, I won't call my order in, I'll just go to one of the other nearby just as good or better Thai restaurants that can take my order without the asinine gimmickry.

Used to be good, now kinda crappy. I haven't been here in a while, came in tonight, and waited at the empty tills for a few minutes. Eventually a teller wandered over and stared at me blankly. Ok, l gave her my usual order, noted no tomato, collected my tag. A few minutes later my meal arrived, with a tiny portion of veggie fries. Pricey, small, and cool veggie fries. I chased down the teller/server and she agreed they were too few without hesitation. A much larger, hot, portion, soon arrived. I then pick up my sandwich and realize, just as I'm about to bite into it, it's got tomato. WTF?! Now that has to be replaced. The same teller/server brings that replacement and notes they're very aware of allergies. Apparently I have to detail my medical requirements for a no tomato request to be honored. She also confides she thought the veggie order was skimpy when she brought it over and the kitchen knew the complaint before she spoke to them. So both the kitchen and server knew my order was mishandled and both still went ahead. Thanks, but I'll not be eating where they *know* they're screwing up, still go ahead, and then make asinine excuses that only make it worse. Oh wow, I've got a coupon for food I don't feel comfortable eating now. I hope nothing looked too dodgy before they cooked it...

Big Patriots Sunday game day, this place was half empty. Asked to be seated someplace quiet-ish, the Host dumped us directly under a speaker. We tried to move to the adjacent empty table (empty tables all around us), were told that wasn't possible. An easy $150 for the three of us walked out the door. Unbelievably incompetent/rude treatment. No wonder this place was half empty when there were hour waits everywhere else. Instead we had a nice late lunch for my buddies 51st birthday down the street. This place *was* on the list for a big charity pub crawl next month, it'll be off by noon tomorrow. Nobody gonna waste time or money on these folk's inhospitality.

Excellent bakery that also stocks hiking gear. A great alternative to fast food/hotel kitchen grub the pastries are made here from scratch. Indeed I just watched a baker testing a pan of something with, yes, a toothpick. Highly recommended.

I've been eating here and and ordering takeout from here for years. I've always been extremely pleased with both the food and their service. My personal favorite is the Drunken Noodles, but everything is excellent. I'm also impressed with how they try to guide diners to dishes. I recently watched the waitress try to explain to a demanding customer that a curry dish must, by definition, include _some_ spices, but how about trying this out that dish which are similar but could be made quite bland. She worked very hard trying to match her customers requests to the capability of the kitchen (I would have quickly given up and recommended the unreasonable customer go home and make a cup of instant ramen.)

It's a pit. The store is *always* dirty, disorganized, the merchandise pawed over, stuff in the aisles, prices missing or wrong. The staff reflects the store, absolutely no interest in helping a customer (their standard strategy is to run away when asked a question, never, ever, to return.) Aside from supporting a store that treats it's employees terribly this one also treats it's customers terribly. Oh, and for comparison, the Target a block away? Immaculate, pleasant, the staff plentiful and *helpful*. A complete opposite of this horrid Walmart, so there's no excuse except for corporate apathy and incompetent store management. Don't waste your time here, don't give them your money. You deserve better and can do better.
