Not entirely happy with Evernote's link format change (only propagated to Evernote for Mac in the past few days). Now it's requiring me to sign in on the web even though Evernote Desktop is open...

Still, neat that links will work from any computer/environment.

Evernote changes its copy note link format!!
Hey all - I think I completely  missed the boat on this one! The Evernote copy note links (not the shared URLs but the copy note links that work as internal links) are now https:// and not evernote:///!  

This is actually really great if you think about it. Why? Well let's say you're using these copy note links in your task manager that's not Evernote ... well, before you likely ran up against issues with task managers not recognizing the evernote:///. Now this doesn't matter! The https:// link works on both the desktop and your mobile devices!!

WOOT!! :)

+Jeremy Roberts - thought you'd be interested! ;-)

** Nifty productivity trick: Add Gmail Search and Contacts search to your Chrome search engines. **

As part of my productivity habits hacks, I never keep my Gmail inbox open on my browser (thanks to awesome tools like #sanebox , AwayFind and NirvanaHQ - previously #todoist , who all helped me break my unhealthy email habits). But that means that when I need something specific from my email, I get endlessly frustrated with having to click into Gmail search (and even moreso with Google contact search). I already had some techy hacks in place to circumvent that, but they were quite yucky.

Until now.
Now, I just go the Chrome address bar, type "m WhateverIWantToSearch", and I get a Gmail search.
Or I type "c thePersonImLookingFor" and I get a Google Contact search.

Want to do it too? It doesn't get easier than this.

In Chrome, go to:
chrome://settings/
Scroll down to Advanced Settings and click "Manage Search Engines..."

Scroll to the bottom. In the form where it says "Add a New search engine", type:
Add a new search --> Gmail
Keyword --> m (or other letter of your choice)
URL --> https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#apps/%s

Then add another:
Add a new search --> Google contacts
Keyword --> c (or other letter of your choice)
URL --> https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#contacts/search/%s

Voila! You now have two superpower shortcuts to amaze and awe your family members and coworkers (even a few of the cool techy ones. Unless you happen to work at Google, that is). 

In the Chrome address bar, simply type:
m yoursearchText
c yoursearchContact
... and you'll be immediately rerouted to search either Gmail or Google contacts. Sweet!

* Note: any website that has a search engine can be used in the same way. In fact you likely have a list of websites you frequent filled in already (auto-populated). Pick the ones you use most often (Amazon, anyone?) and give them one-character shortcuts. Bam! Instant click-free zone.

* Note: If If you want to add new search websites that aren't already on that list, simply go to the website in question and search for "mysearchtext" (or any other random string). Now, copy the URL and replace the "mysearchtext" part with "%s". That's the URL you should give Chrome. Success!

(with thanks to Dan R. Parker for reminding me the awesome that is Chrome)

Honored and thrilled to have our controversy proposal receive the Google Research Award! (with James Allan) #GoodNews
 
Summer 2014 Google Research Awards Announced

The recipients of the most recent round of Google Research Awards (http://goo.gl/m3tae5), our biannual open call for proposals on computer science-related topics, have been announced.

Out of 722 proposals, covering 44 countries on 6 continents, 110 projects on  computer science-related topics will receive support. Among the accepted proposals in this round are three new topics; Computational neuroscience, physical interactions with devices, and online learning at scale.

The Google Research Awards are unrestricted gifts to universities to support the work of world-class full-time faculty members at top universities around the world, providing both faculty and students the opportunity to work directly with Google researchers and engineers. 

Congratulations to the well-deserving recipients of these awards. Head over to the Google Research Blog to learn more, and for a link to the full list of recipients.

JEWS AND MUSLIMS BEWARE. This restaurant serves meatballs that are supposedly chicken, beef, veggie or pork options, but in practice all the meatballs except veggie contain pork. This is noted only in tiny letters at the bottom of the menu. While any normal person would assume that a chicken option does not contain the others, and vice versa, this restaurant defies logic by sticking pork sausages inside all their meatballs. Insane. We only found this out after two of the three of us had completed their dish, the third saw something pink inside his chicken meatball. He asked if it was undercooked and the manager nonchalantly said, "no, it's pork sausage" (this was in the chicken meatball). We were completely in shock and didn't know how to respond. Our question about religious and other preferences (all the of us avoid pork for various reasons) was met with apathy and complete disregard. The waiter was flabbergasted as he, being new, didn't even realize that they contained pork and was about as surprised as we were. The friend who found the pork did get a veggie replacement, but since my husband and I had already completed our dishes (one chicken, one beef that both contained pork apparently), no compensation was offered to us. No apology was made whatsoever (except by the poor waiter) and the menu was brought to us to "prove" that it was listed on the menu (again, in a tiny footnote - below the standard foodborne illness warning). Other than that, the food was decent but honestly, we would never come back to a place that so completely disregards a huge religious restriction of several large segments of the population, not to mention dietary restrictions that are not religiously motivated. Craziness.

As others say -- Arif is great, much more professional than a few other tailors in the area. Did a huge set of repairs, in a relatively short amount of time, and (surprise!) was ready in the time that she promised -- all in a decent price. Highly recommended. By the way, the place is a bit hard to find by the address. I drove around for a bit until I discovered that it's tucked behind the Maple Farms store, so just drive into the parking lot for Maple Farms and go around the back. Hours are posted on the door -- M-F 9-5pm, Sat 9-1pm and closed on Sundays.
