And it works (on most images). I'm pretty sure they use Google's #Tesseract  OCR under the hood? Native or JS compiled via Emscripten, that's the question.

Most exciting!

Time to try something new: Hello Fresh

I'm a student and single, so that means I rarely have time to go to the supermarket and most of the stuff I buy there comes in packaging way too large for a 1-person household which results in a lot of unnecessary waste.

German startup, Hello Fresh, wants to fix that. They offer weekly "food boxes" which supply you with recipes and all the ingredients you need to prepare those meals. Delivered with cooling packs by UPS, this could be the healthy alternative I've been looking for. The first box I received today contains way more fruits and vegetables than I've ever bought at the supermarket. Attached you'll find some pictures of my very first food box.

Let's see how this goes.

Now imagine a country with an even greater variety of breads, a place where you could get the whole loaf of bread for way under 4$.

Welcome to #Germany.
There's something happening in San Francisco. It's $4 toast.

Hello, I've created a new way to view your awesome #lensblur  photos in your browser - . Complete with smooth accelerometer driven parallax, mobile support and depthmap extraction.

This is the first, quick&dirty version. More stuff will follow soon. Plus it's open source!

p.s. It requires WebGL, so don't be too harsh on your iOS friends ;)

Moving the world forward, one code line at a time

So excited to be able to attend this year's Google I/O again. Can't wait to meet all the Googlers, developers, designers and most importantly all the other +Google Developer Groups Organizers in attendance.

I'll make sure to keep you posted about all the awesome things that are going to happen at the Moscone Center.

Haha someone had a look at the I/O extended berlin logo there ;) ...but it looks nice, also it brings some brand recognition ;) ...we should all do the logos like that!

...or is it a proposal from Google? (didn't have a look at the organizer guide yet)

Pin your certs. It's the right thing to do.

(via +Joe LaPenna)
Yay, Facebook is using HSTS! Their response header pins the certificate for 30 days (2592000 seconds): prevents MITM attacks, makes the browser automatically rewrite all requests to HTTPS.. aka, no costly redirects!

For a great intro to HSTS check out this article by +Mike West:

Twitter releases "new Profile"-Design for everyone
Still reminds me of Google+. And that's actually a good thing.

The only thing bugging me out is the excessive width of the Tweet column. 140 characters seem kind of lost when displayed on a 1080p screen.
