Good news everyone!

No, really, great news! It's just the beginning, but promising to see that we're making some progress as a society.
Data from the International Energy Agency suggests that growth in global carbon emissions stalled last year - the first time this has happened without a major economic downturn.

Guy makes LED change colour depending on wifi signal at a point, keeps playing with it for long enough to create crazy 3D representation of signal strength.

This is really interesting stuff - for most people (i.e. those not developing wireless antennae) it's difficult to imagine what RF waves look like in the real world. The principles of the setup are pretty simple, but the results are fascinating.

Edit: Check out this link for the 3D visualisation shown in the video: http://cnlohr.github.io/voxeltastic/

This is disappointing, if not hugely unsurprising. Unfortunately I can't see a significant enough proportion of the electorate caring about this to force opposition to the idea.

Yes, he said that.
The Tory leader said: 'If I am prime minister I will make sure that it is a comprehensive piece of legislation that does not allow terrorists safe space to communicate with eachother'

Idea: +Valve should create a +Steam in home streaming app for +Android TV (depending obviously on whether the hardware is up to it).

The Nexus Player will be a cheap purchase, and having support for gamepads could make it an interesting streaming solution.

A gif of the failed +SpaceX Falcon 9 stage 1 soft landing attempt (image credit to +The Verge).

Despite the obvious fireball, the images show just how close the team got to the intended goal. Pretty impressive stuff, and very exciting for the future of space travel.

Edit: ...and here's the video of it! https://vine.co/v/OjqeYWWpVWK

Thanks to you, we’re halfway to our goal of matching $7.5 million in donations to fight Ebola!

It’s not to late to donate -- for every $1 you give, we’ll donate $2 to four nonprofits doing humanitarian work in West Africa → google.com/fightebola
