I'm the last one on planet to use a phone as a mirror I think, never ever occurred to me to do that -- why would it? lol.. nice snappy video that gives more examples than a selfie on a day off..

from the vid blurb.. Googlers play a multiplayer match of Beach Buggy Racing on Android TV. The demo shows how a game, using the Nearby Connections API in Google Play services, can seamlessly connect smartphones and tablets..

A slide to show what we take for granted It was quiet Sunday evening, for me in the UK, I had a video chat with +Larry Fournillier then text chat on & off for a few hours. Then I had a text chat with +Harold Carey Jr about a google earth file. #localisglobal

+David Andrews The problem i have is with local people who live a few  miles apart and look at me quite blank when I talk of time zones. And also those people who operate the one way internet ie they buy from it, but disbelieve they can sell on it..
  Mind you in real life, many friends and family owned those one way telephones, like, ''why have you not called me?'' hmm that will be, your phone has a key pad with numbers doesn't it? ..

Easy web order, fast delivery at half the cost of other stores, highly recommend you give WiperBlades a try - we live in an online world, what better way to replace an auto part. Customer Service fast to reply as well .. :)

The Marconi & Hoffmann exhibits are memories from my past, as is the glass Bee Hive on the first floor. To think there are nightclub photos, really shows I have lived a life in Chelmsford. Hands on stuff for kids to, grounds are lovely. I've made seven photospheres too..

Some assistants can be helpful, others just want the sale. Overall, the rotation of products, esp near the door is troublesome. The addition of a massive car phone warehouse in the store is a loss for me, totally downsizes the PCs & Cameras. I can only think this store is designed to SELL not give insights into the rapid changing tech marketplace.. ps Please leave the selling of a warranties to one ask, not a dozen..

Zoom is an excellent product that I cannot recommend enough. I use Zoom for all my screen recordings. I'm convinced I can teach eights faster with Zoom than I can with any other video service..
