Good read from +David Pierce​. Looking forward to the "plus" being dropped. FWIW, I don't see the 'stream' ever getting canned. The internet has a legitimate need for a place where people can maintain a controlled public profile as an alternative to Facebook, and the G+ identity stream fills this role very well. The mistake was trying to be FB -- games, annoying b-day alerts, etc.
As a Facebook and Twitter competitor, Google+ never really stood a chance. By some combination of odd design, confusing nomenclature—remember Circles? Sparks?—and the simple fact that no one ever really used it, Google’s grand plan to unite its many products into a single social product just didn’t pan out. So it should surprise no one…

Yeah, late start, but it settled in hard.

I can (and do) gawk at this guy's work all the time. It didn't exist when I was a kid, but looking at it makes me feel like one again.
If you have the book Incredible Cross-Sections of Star Wars you already know the amazing work of Hans Jenssen, a genius technical illustrator based in the United Kingdom. His work,completely done using classic drawing techniques and no computer aiding whatsoever, is a pure joy to zoom in and explore.

And this is why +Android is still crazy and awesome.

What’s more exciting to a geek than a mechanical keyboard? Why, one that’s hiding a powerful little Android PC beneath its clicky keys, of course! This is the OneBoard PRO+, a new product [...]

I've always loved how Doug Chiang depicted the Jedi his way in the concept art he produced for Episodes I & II, even after their look had been established as something much more tame. Though I've never seen this painting labeled, my understanding is that the figure in the foreground is Obi-wan, and the figure in the background is either Dooku or Anakin. I like to think it's the latter, decked out in a black jumpsuit that foreshadows Luke's outfit in ROTJ. The remaining combatant is cropped out to the right.

I did alright.
A good logo should be easily and universally recognized, even if it were written in Chinese. But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. Chinatown, a project by Mehmet Gozetlik, shows how a famous logo can look both foreign and yet still somehow be recognizable at the same time. It's like getting a glimpse of an alternate reality.

I saw Interstellar in 70mm IMAX on a Monday night. I see virtually all movies on Monday night, because movie theaters are empty on Monday night. But the place was absolutely packed, like a can of sardines. We barely found two seats, and I had the great misfortune of sitting next to the lady who'd packed her entire refrigerator in her purse. We're talking Yoplait + spoon (yes, she licked the peel-off foil cap thoroughly), grapes, nuts, everything. In addition to the giant bag of popcorn that lasted her and her husband the entire running time. The manner in which this woman consumed her foodstuffs was the most distracting/disconcerting thing I've ever experienced in a movie theater. It was awful. But this sequence (and the wormhole, and the black hole) still managed to blow my mind wide open. 
Let's break down one of the most thrilling scenes from Christopher Nolan's sci-fi saga, with an exclusive clip.

Licking foil in public should be punishable by banishment from civilization.
