+Google Play​ music is really really bad for finding new music... Looking for new metal to try out and all there is now is a rock section? What happened to all the metal sub genres that were there before? Keith richards next to children of bodom? 2 rows above Bryan adams was mixed in there. Not really selling it very well Google. Your app is getting worse. Rod Stewart? Wow... Just terrible... How dods everyone out there find new music?

For me the best way to discover new music so far has been to pick a track I like and start a radio based on it. You're right about the genres, it's ridiculous.

In a video posted to YouTube, Heckscher is seen being carried away by police in handcuffs because she refused to leave the area of the TPP conference.

And this is one reason why it will sell well, the Apple sycophants selling their credibility for favourable reviews...
 
"The Apple Watch ... is kind of slow."

"Sometimes apps take forever to load, and sometimes third-party apps never really load at all. Sometimes it’s just unresponsive for a few seconds while it thinks and then it comes back."

"It’s also surprisingly heavy."

"[The] side button is extraordinarily confusing."

"In the first of many moments where the Watch felt underpowered, I found that the screen lit up a couple of ticks too slowly: I’d raise my wrist, wait a beat, and then the screen would turn on."

"Having a screen that constantly flips on and off is definitely behind the curve."

"There’s no particularly great digital face, and there’s no ability to load up your own watch faces or buy new ones from the store."

"There’s no master switch to turn all notifications on and off, which is a huge pain."

"By the end of each day, I was hyper-aware of how low the Apple Watch battery had gotten."

"You only get a charging cable, which is lame. For $700, you should a nice charging stand, like you get with the $249 Moto 360."

"There’s virtually nothing I can’t do faster or better with access to a laptop or a phone except perhaps check the time."

"There’s no question that the Apple Watch is the most capable smartwatch available today."

We spent a lot of time fine-tuning the #NexusCamera . Here are 5 things you need to know.  #Nexus5X   #Nexus6P  

1. Low light… no problem
The new Nexus Camera is the best we've ever put into our phones and is especially great in low light settings. The 12.3MP imaging sensor has large 1.55 micron pixels and a wide aperture F/2.0 lens -- this allows it to run shorter exposure times for less motion blur. For example, the Nexus 6P has 92% more light collection efficiency than the original Nexus 6. We also chose a closed-loop autofocus technology and a laser detect autofocus system, which uses a time-of-flight IR laser to enable fast autofocus in low light conditions. Finally, the HDR+ mode now automatically kicks in during low light.

2. Improved HDR+
HDR+ takes a burst of photos and then uses computational photography to create a better photo in tricky conditions like low light and strong backlighting (HDR means High Dynamic Range). This year we've improved HDR+ by starting from RAW images, just like a high-end SLR. This ability to shoot in RAW is available to any developer through the Camera2 API, so we expect to see a raft of amazing camera apps that run on these devices.

3. DxO score of 84
The DxO score of 84 for Nexus 6P makes it the third highest rated phone camera ever. In low light environments, the Nexus 6P outperforms all the other phones we’ve tested in terms of brightness, detail, less noise, and better balanced exposure and tone mapping. 

4. A faster camera is a better camera
Quality is great but speed is essential to make sure you get the right shot. The new Nexus Camera opens fast with just a double tap of the power button. The whole camera stack was optimized to make this one of the fastest launching phone cameras out there. We’ve also sped up shot-to-shot time and updated the user interface to make all the most common and urgent actions fast and easy.

5. Smarter bursts
When you press-and-hold the shutter button on the Nexus 6P, Smart Burst analyzes a stream of 30 photos per second, and uses computer vision and machine learning to select the best (up to 8), saving you work and storage space. It also highlights the best shot and automatically generates an instant-creation that best captures the entire scene, either an animated GIF, a photo-booth collage, or that perfect group shot.

Gotta love +Google Maps​ and the fun they have... Makes me wonder if this is one of their 20% projects or did they actually hire someone (also the light sabre noise when hovering over the volume bar in YouTube... That one is annoying though)

Parallel parking the x-wing was tough.

Had my third child go for a check up today. +Doncaster Holden​ did a great job with the service on it. Daniel looked after me well, upgraded the MyLink to include the lines in the rear camera (as well as some bug fixes).

And they didn't surprise me with the "complimentary wash" (and complimentary swirl marks) like some dealers do.
Thanks for looking after my baby.

Not to be a downer, but techdirt didn't really provide any information either. The reference to the Cato report was entirely conjecture. There's plenty of information regarding tariffs and quotas that will either being eased or removed entirely. It's a bit complicated because the partnerships aren't equal across the board which granted, at first seems counterintuitive but since countries aren't starting at the same place, and the TPP changes must be specified to each country per section, it can't be entirely equal. The "it was drafted behind closed doors" argument is a pretty weak one in my opinion. I choose to believe you democratic power is meant to choose who will make decisions for me, and trust they will do so for my benefit, rather than grant me the right to overview and approve of every policy on the table.
