Now that mobile payments are going to get some serious attention thanks to Apple Pay, I wonder how long it will take for +Google Wallet to extend their reach a bit worldwide, or if Apple will end up beating them to those markets...

Yeah, I've always been frustrated that dismounting a volume will create the illusion that you're ejecting it (the trash icon even changes to the eject icon if you drag it over, the finder button is an eject symbol) - but pressing the eject key, or the shortcut to send something to the trash (cmd+delete) will not do the same thing.

No folks, the shortcut you're looking for is cmd+e.

Yay consistency!
In the sidebar, click the Eject button next to the server's name to unmount all volumes associated with a server (Leopard only; the behavior of the Eject button ...

subtle, nice job google:

if you hover over the icon, it applies a webkit gradient to do the blip :)

(also - chrome for iPhone is out)
Google Chrome for Mobile lets you bring your personalized Chrome experience with you anywhere you go.

I've heard that high-altitude balloons have issues with gas leakage and material disintegration from the stress of expansion - hence the restricted lifetime.

Is there any more information about why certain materials were chosen? For instance - helium was mentioned as the gas used in the video, but why not methane (which has slower leakage) or hydrogen, which is cheaper? Also mentioned was the choice for using constant pressure vs variable for the increased lifespan - just how much of a difference can that make?

I'm not questioning the choices - but I would absolutely love some insight into the engineering that goes on!

I found a little more information on your "faq" page (link's at the bottom of the regular page rather than the top):

Super interesting stuff!

I would have thought they'd updated this by now, since it's been this way since the initial beta. But the route on the icon takes you off what looks like a bridge...

Disclaimer: I myself am tired of all the iOS 6 maps are bad hurrrr stuff (I think they'll improve). I only wanted to point out that it's a simple fix :)
