This is a bit long but worth your time.   Her closing comments about how this should involve everyone, of both genders, are exactly on point.
 
This is great. Very well done.

I didn't understand what this meant when I saw someone mention yellow ribbons on dogs a month or so ago.  Good to know and a great idea.
 
A signal boost for the new year:

The Yellow Dog Project
Showing people that sometimes dogs just need a little space.

I hope to never lose any of my electronics, but I misplace things all the dang time.  I am counting on this locate feature to work even if you have the sound off on your phone and can't remember where the heck you last set it down ....
 
This is probably the Android announcement I'm the most excited about this year -- introducing the Android Device Manager! It will launch later this month, and allow you to remotely locate or wipe your device if it's lost or stolen.

Several months ago I wrote up a long post on Google+ with a lot of security tips for Android users. When the Android Device Manager launches I'll be sure to give that article a major update.

Read up on conditions in those jobs before you apply... They can be grueling.

There is a message here that unfortunately still needs to be heard and taken to heart by far too many. Delivered by beautiful women and a great song.
 
I'm proud of my friends who made this, and honoured to be part of it.

How cool .... Perhaps there will finally be someone else to ask what's for dinner tonight?

A master chef can think about a combination of two, maybe three ingredients at a time. Watson, the same IBM supercomputer that won Jeopardy in 2011, can crunch through a quintillion. That's a one...

This significant price difference is why I still use Kindle over Google Play.  I have price checked a handful of times in the last couple of months and Kindle has been less expensive by far.   I am really curious to see how Google Play will ever compete.

I am a book junkie.  I read, a lot.  Usually the Humble Bundle stuff I see is for games -- which I love as well -- but this time it is for eBooks!!  If you are a book lover and willing to take a chance on some obscure titles for charity, paying only what you want, get over there and get some.                                                                       +Humble Bundle 
 
We’ve reached $500,000 in sales and over 48,000 bundles of Humble eBook Bundle 2 sold!
