I've been very impressed with the rapid progress of +Sprint Reader I'm up to 650 wpm and can probably go faster with a little more practice.
Language auto-detection done!

Functionality coming soon and paves the way for more intelligent word hyphenation (by language pattern) and maybe, just maybe auto-translation!

Stay tuned.

If you see a "low battery" or "offline" warnings on your Nest thermostat check if you have a "C" wire.  I was lucky, there was an unused wire that I was able to easily attach on both ends.

The power stealing from the control wiring is a neat technique, but direct power is better.

Yeah, we moved recently and the rental townhouse has some fancy multi-zone setup that the Nest can't steal power from. Fortunately they also had an extra wire in the wall I could dig out and use for for the "C" wire.

Check out the BD doodle on today.
M'enfin ?! C'est quoi ce Doodle ?
Le 28 février 1957 apparaissait pour la première fois Gaston Lagaffe, nouvelle recrue de la rédaction du Journal de Spirou telle qu'imaginée par André Franquin.
Aujourd'hui, Gaston fait un stage chez Google France et arrive en trombe sur notre page d'accueil, accompagné de son chat-dingue et de sa mouette rieuse.
Si contrairement à ses collègues Prunelle, Spirou et Fantasio  ou à nous même qui l'avons au bureau aujourd'hui, vous ne connaissez pas Gaston :
• Découvrez comment un Doodle est réalisé grace à ce GIF
• Apprenez en plus sur Gaston avec Google : ou sur son site officiel
Nous nous excusons par avance pour tout bug causé par l'une de ses gaffes.

Google+  has some common sense content rules in the User Content and Conduct Policy [1]  You'll notice there is no section on censorship based on viewpoint.

The issue described by +Eric Raymond below is much more mundane.  It's actually a problem in the way Google+ previews web snippets.  

A couple of weeks ago we introduced the new Article embed type.  You'll notice these posts by their distinctive large-photos with a ragged-edge.  This new code caused the problem.

The markup on uses the markup.  That, combined with some other factors causes the preview processing to fail.  This issue was reported to us on April 1st and a fix will be released to production early next week.

I opened an issue on our developer site to track this issue since it does affect a handful of other sites that use the NewsArticle markup.  Feel free to Star it to receive updates:

G+ may be engaging in non-viewpoint-neutral censorship of news  articles relating to firearms. 

This link:

results in post blocking when it's either pasted in the link box or pasted in text with the preview image not removed. Others have reported that all firearms-related articles from The Blaze, but not non-firearms-related articles, are blocked.

Something more specific than blocking of firearms-related images is going on, as the Geeks with Guns G+ community would have noticed that a lot sooner than now.

Google has some explaining to do.

It's Oakland's time to shine.
[...] for half the price his digital security company Clef was paying to share a bug-infested space near Second and Harrison streets, he landed a similarly sized office in Oakland's Jack London Square in a renovated, exposed brick-and-beam century-old building. Tired of paying too much for their office space and apartments, the Clef crew is among the pioneering startups settling in pockets around Oakland - helping lift the city to No. 13 in the ...

Further blurring the boundaries between electronic music and rock, Ratatat's self-titled debut album mixes Evan Mast's fractured but propulsive beats and woozy analog synths with Mike Stroud's loud, yet somehow subtle, guitars.

I was hoping for better after reading the reviews. Margaritas were okay, food was pretty by-the-book. Fajitas came out sizzling and nicely charred. Cheese enchilada was a bit bland.

Solid, sustainable, menu with decent drinks. A bargain for happy hour / prix fixe. Had dinner there on Christmas day. The place was full and the service was pretty good considering. The veggie burger was surprisingly good and unique. The Pot Roast did not disappoint and was comparable to the version served by Chow in that Bay Area. Bonus: even though we didn't order Prix Fixe our server structured out bill that way since we had ordered items that were on that menu.
