What a surprise - free Internet kiosks in #NewYorkCity have attracted people engaged in 'activities that include playing loud explicit music, consuming drugs and alcohol, and the viewing of pornography'. Who could possibly have seen all that coming?!

All tech giants have rewards for faithful users (hello fellow Local Guides!) but hey - getting paid for browsing the web or doing web searches?! Is the situation with the #Microsoft Edge browser really that desperate? 
Microsoft Rewards is the easiest way to get rewarded for doing what you already do on Microsoft.

A good rundown of Google Photos! Especially valuable for Local Guides, I'd say :) 
Can't find that one photo you're looking for? Google’s smart photo app can make it easy.

Ah well, I figured I'd run my first 'real' #HOA using LIveEvents today but it seems - eh - slightly complicated compared to the old times. If any of you guys are awake I wouldn't mind someone holding my hand :)

Just downloaded Rhodes and it sure was a lot more straightforward than doing it through Maps. I definitely like #GoogleTrips! http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwm42c7jE
The new Google Trips app finally brings the ability to download far-off city maps to the forefront.

Hello Allo - the latest entry in the (somewhat convoluted) space where the Google messaging offerings live. We've got #Hangouts, #Messenger for texts, #Voice for good old phone calls (still alive and kicking?), #Duo, #HangoutsOnAir (which actually rules big time!) and now #Allo. Phew. I just don't quite get it.

Bara att konstatera: det finns goda skäl till att inte göra 'call-in' som vi gjorde denna gång! Det går för tusan inte att lyssna på eländet.. Fast huvudsaken var ju att vi hade kul :)

The Brändöskär chapel was built in the late 18th century and on the walls inside there are many reminders of the severe life of the people who lived - and died - at sea. You can almost sense the days long passed when visiting the chapel.

The neat public sauna at Brändöskär is located in the small bay, well protected from the elements. During the summer season there is normally firewood in the shed by the sauna but it's you who need to do some sawing and chopping for sure! The beach is not ideal for a swim - kinda stony and shallow - but it's doable.

The sauna is at the main Kluntarna small boat harbor, close to the rental cottages so there are quite a few people using it during the peak summer season! You definitely need to book on a beautiful summer's day - Kluntarna is one of the most popular islands for 'boat folks' in the Luleå archipelago.

This is much more than a boat ramp - indeed, a full blown harbor protected from the fury of the waves by extremely heavy duty breakwaters! Pretty much all the facilities you might need are available as well, including both hot(!) and cold running water for all visitors - for free. For sea kayak visitors there are no really good spots to get ashore, however, even though it works ok anyway.

Folkets bio is actually a cultural association run by folks who work 'pro bono' in order to bring quality films to general public. The main multiplex movie theaters (that have monopoly in Sweden) only focus on the blockbuster cash cows.

One of many wood heated saunas in the Luleå archipelago, open for anyone visiting the islands - this one at a great location by a small sandy beach. During the summer season there's always lots of firewood here but it's up to you to do the sawing and chopping! Be prepared to fire up an hour in advance if you really want to have a Nordic style (hot!) sauna experience! You might need to book your sauna bath at the main small boat harbor (where there is also another public sauna).
