More Marilyn than Kimye
 
An ivory satin corset, milky white skin and bouncing waves — it’s an old-school vision of beauty for Caitlyn Jenner, nee Bruce.

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

For my Windows-using peeps

"There is something about inequity in relationships that people don't like, and something about not being the breadwinner that men especially don't like." So says the sociologist who found that 15% of men who are financially dependent on their wives are likely to cheat on them in any given year. For women who rely on their husbands, the figure is 5%.
Being the main breadwinner ;in a marriage may not ;earn you as ;much gratitude ;as you'd hope, according to a new study.

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!
