Regular pot smokers have shrunken brains, study says  
Experimental mice have been telling us this for years, but pot-smoking humans didn't want to believe it could happen to them: Compared with a person who never smoked marijuana, someone who uses marijuana regularly has, on average, less gray matter in his orbital frontal cortex, a region that is a key node in the brain's reward, motivation, decision-making and addictive behaviors network.

Today we launched Google Handwriting Input (http://goo.gl/qWWhDU), which lets users handwrite text on their Android mobile device as an additional input method for any Android app, supporting 82 languages in 20 distinct scripts. It works with both printed and cursive writing input with or without a stylus. Beyond text input, it also provides a fun way to enter hundreds of emojis by drawing them (simply press and hold the ‘enter’ button to switch modes). It also works with or without an Internet connection. Learn more at http://goo.gl/j7lFbC

Holidays that began literally as "holy days" have become shopping and vacation opportunities. Chairs at Sunday brunch tables fill up, while pews in Sunday church services get emptier. A fifth of Americans – and one-third of Americans under the age of 30 – mark "none" as their religious affiliation, according the Pew Research Center.

Are you still in shock over #Empire  last night? We're doing a Hangout on Air at noon on +Los Angeles Times. Join +Gerrick Kennedy, Jerome Campbell and Tre'vell Anderson. 
Though the latest episode of “Empire” offers plenty to talk about, ;I must highlight Jamal’s newly revealed (and increasingly complex) storyline -- which had me shaking my head and picking my mouth up off the floor at the same time.

I'll end my experiment already and go back to my iPad (the back to the Mac experiment)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7fTXtsrL4c

I have ended my new experiment already where I went back to my 11-inch MacBook again, from been living in the post-pc era for 14 months only using my iPad and iPhone. I couldn't stand using a computer again, I missed my iPad so badly! It's so much easier for me to be creative and productive on an iPad. Here is a vlog on why and what I missed when using the MacBook. Check it out!

No matter how much you may hate "Blurred Lines" and Robin Thicke, you don't want to come down on the side of the jury's verdict in the Marvin Gaye lawsuit.
