Privacy Check-up Settings
I was surprised to learn Google had many settings enabled by default (taking a page from Facebook) that I had never explicitly given permission for or desired enabled.
You can change these settings using this link:  https://myaccount.google.com/privacycheckup

Here's one found under the  "Help people connect with you" group of settings that really took me by surprise:

It's almost time for RiverRun Film Festival and that means all eyes will be on incredible films from near and far. And if you want to support a local film, "circle" +Harvest which has finished filming in the NC mountains and is now in post-production here in Winston-Salem! #wsnc   #myws   #ncfilm

A web page posted a wee bit too early by Newegg seems to show the prices for Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Professional, as well as when you can buy them.

On a clear day, I think the Su-24's dirty contrail could be spotted well before the aircraft -- not a good thing for a fighter.

David Amerland originally shared to Technology:
 
The 'Battle' for the Virtual world is About to Begin

I very recently covered how Google is perfectly poised to dominate Augmented Reality (AR) and Facebook Virtual Reality (VR) - http://goo.gl/Timl0D. What is interesting is that in order for each company to do their thing, they both need to do the same thing, i.e. accurately mirror the world. 

Google, obviously uses this for search as well as AR and the rest of its attendant services. Facebook, however, simply needs to do what it always tries to do: pull the web and the world inside its walled garden. 

The purchase of British company Surreal Vision by Oculus Rift is a step in exactly this direction. What is interesting is that by mirroring the world outside in their respective servers both companies will be better poised to surface valuable information about it, to us. Only one, however is currently geared to do this and it's not Facebook. 

Read about Surreal Vision here: http://goo.gl/PMWVQ2

h/t to Art Johnson: https://goo.gl/hIEEQK for surfacing this for me.
