Epic Easter meal

On Easter, the mayor of the most beautiful town I've ever seen made dinner reservations for us...

The meal took four hours and was one of the most delicious experiences of my life...

OK, Google, let's put the new voice ID everywhere

(Read my column: https://goo.gl/WpBNMb )

Google Home now recognizes who you are when you talk to it. This technology is too powerful and useful to leave at Home.

This is a huge deal, a technological marvel and a major leap forward in human-machine interaction.

It's also a cautionary tale about the downside of overzealous concern about privacy.

What do you think? Is Google being too cautious about privacy?

This is no run-of-the-mill mill. It's the Molinetto della Croda, an ancient mill that's been around for around four centuries. It kept going until the early 1950s, then fell into disrepair. More recently, they've refurbished the joint and got it running again for visitors.
