This makes me happy!  
 
Good guy Google. Knows you're being bad and shooting a vertical video, shows you rotating arrows to help you not be bad.

This is awesome.  
 
Casting Light on Sound to See its Shadow

"When light passes between areas of different air density, it bends. You've probably noticed the way distant pavement seems to shimmer on a hot day, or the way stars appear to twinkle. You're seeing light that has been distorted as it passes through varying air densities, which are in turn created by varying temperatures and pressures.

In the mid-19th century, German physicist August Toepler invented a photography technique called Schlieren Flow Visualization to visually capture these changes in density. The setup is a bit hard to explain in words (watch the video above for a full explanation) but it allows scientists and engineers to see things that are normally invisible: the rising heat from a candle, the turbulence around an airplane wing, the plume of a sneeze.

It can also be used to see sound. Sound, after all, is just another change in air density — a traveling compression wave. A speaker pushes on the surrounding air, creating a wave that travels outward until it encounters the ear drum."

Considering writing a blog post on +Google's nearly incomprehensible fragmentation between +Google Maps, +Google Earth, +Google+ locations, and +Waze.

Is anyone in charge of these mapping products?

Sadly, I have been to half of them, and for the most part, spot on assessment.

10 most disappointing destinations

Don't believe the hype! These popular but disappointing destinations are more letdown than must-see.

Earlier this week I drove from Westport CT to Boson MA.  Passing through Hartford I recalled another business trip where I made time for a flight lesson at the Brainard Airport.  It was that evening I figured out how to land a plane.
