It would seem even hiring professionals like (Kitchens) may not be the solution you think it is either. So if you are capable, save yourself the hassle and money by carrying out the design, project management, and installation all yourself.
Yes , so far your kitchen design and installation service has fallen far short of acceptable let alone impressive. At the moment it is near laughable, yet sadly we are at the point of no return as my kitchen is half removed yet only now are the installers figuring out what work is required.
From the outset, the design was incorrect with wall cupboards shown at different heights, cupboards with dead spaces instead of proper corner units, and a sink that doesn't fit inside it's carcass. These are just a select few mistakes, but I let them pass as we still had the survey stage to iron things out, so I paid the deposit and agreed that ALL works are to be carried out by them, even the tiling.
So the project manager attended site and surveyed the design. Yep it didn't fit in to the kitchen it was designed for. Excellent. So I redesigned parts of the kitchen myself and told them what solutions were required. Happy days I thought, so I paid the final payment for the materials. But now I wish I hadn't. Even though I signed paperwork with the agreed amendments, I've never received a copy of the final drawings.
Next the installers carry out a pre visit. He's all happy so the works commences the following week. That brings us to Wednesday of this week. Half my kitchen gets removed, and the walls and ceilings scheduled to be plastered the following day. When I query who is taking care of the electrics before plastering is done I get blank stares. This is when I knew things were going to become a disaster. And I was right.
It has taken 3 days for the penny to drop that my appliances need electricity to work in their new locations among other issues such as plumbing. And now the installer wants to discuss additional costs.
So this is where I'm at. It has taken three professionals three visits to not work out what is required to install a kitchen. Yet it took one man (me) to realise that all three haven't got a clue.
Sadly though, due to how get paid, the only people at risk are the customer and the installers who sub contract to Hammonds but get paid directly by the customer.
And where is the project manager whilst all this is going on? Do let me know if you find him as I currently he is missing in action on this project!
Who knows how this could end. Probably with me carrying out the installation myself.
How about it , it's right next door to Southampton Airport too, so you could just fly in, do your business and get on your way.
To make our hands self-contained interface controls, the team needed a sensor that could capture submillimeter motions of overlapping fingers in 3D space. Radar fits all these requirements, but the necessary equipment was just a little…big.
So the Project Soli team created a gesture radar small enough to fit in a wearable device. It’s a new category of interaction sensor, running at 60GHz; one that can capture motions of your fingers at resolutions and speeds that haven’t been possible before—up to 10,000 frames per second. To get there, the team had to reinterpret traditional radar, which bounces a signal from an object and provides a single return ping. From a hardware and computation perspective, this would have been challenging to recreate on a small scale. So to capture the complexity of hand movements at close range, Soli illuminates the whole hand with a broad radar beam, and estimates the hand configuration by analyzing changes in the returned signal over time.
The team built the first prototype, a 5x5mm piece of silicon, in just 10 months. They’re working on finalizing the development board (prototype) and software API for release to developers later this year.

This is amazing if it can work 100% accurately, and scary at the same time if you ask me!
It's not the regular profile page, or the contact layout in the people app. It's something so much better. Have you seen this before?
Hopefully I can persuade mine to follow suit in the near future. What I would be interested in is finding out if Google carry out free on site visits to demonstrate what the product can do for a business.
Long and short of it is:
High Qualify always compresses your photos but doesn't use your storage quota
Original Quality doesn't touch your photos but will always use your storage quota
So if you want your photos preserved in their original format forever, do not use the high quality setting, but then be prepared to have to buy extra storage capacity at some point.
For me, I'm happy to have photos taken on my phone compressed because they aren't that great quality in the first place. But for the serious stuff taken on a DSLR, I don't want them to be irreversibly touched in any way shape or form. Hopefully it is possible to do both!
Here's some insights straight from the team!
If you choose High Quality, photos >16MP will be resized to 16MP, and we also do some compression to save space. If your photo is smaller than 16MP, we won't reduce the size but yes the photo may be compressed as well.
If you choose Original, your photo is not touched in any way, and will consume quota regardless of size.
Hope that helps!

This feature is rolling out now with Chrome OS version 43. The gist is that it will automatically correct misspellings as you type, without the need to go back and right-click to use traditional spell check. It appears to be disabled by default, however. If you're the type of person that wants to opt in and give it a spin, I have the full instructions up on Medium.
Please feel free to send feedback to the developers using Alt+Shift+I after you have had a chance to use it.
Last night I decided to have a huge spring clean and remove many people from my circles. Not because I've fallen out with anyone or lost interest in . It is because I began to feel things could be better for me here on . I've accumulated too much noise over time.
I've been on G+ since the beginning of time and circled many people over the years with similar interests. When Collections came out though, one of my thoughts was "If I was to start over, would I do things differently? Would I only circle friends and family, and then only follow collections instead of interesting individuals". And I've decided Yes, that is exactly what I would do! So this is me effectively starting over.
Besides family, other than those that I feel I have formed a kinda friendship with, I have uncircled pretty much everyone. The only ones that remain are brand pages, blogs and some very interesting bloggers ie (you techies will love his reviews). I've even left communities.
My plan now is to start over. As collections appear in my stream I will follow the ones that interest me. Hopefully doing all this will keep my entire stream on topic and relevant to my interests, making an even more engaging place for me to hang out from time to time.
Wish me luck.
I have great faith that the people I still have circled will share some interesting things from interesting collections ans as they pop up, I will check them out.
But you are correct, other than featured collections, you won't find a search feature.
