Being able to sequence an entire genome for $1k would be revolutionary. But not because a single person could decode their DNA. We need to do a lot more research into what the differences in DNA actually mean across hundreds of thousands of people from diverse backgrounds, only then will the benefit of individual sequencing truly arrive.

This is amazing news! #peakview
 
Our famous Peak District trails will be the first countryside trails to feature on Google this summer. 

Google are kindly lending us their backpack ‘Trekker’ which records for Google ‘Streetview’. A pioneering first for UK national parks! Only Angkor Wat and the Grand Canyon have had this opportunity before: http://goo.gl/SA7ji9

Images show the 'Trekker' being tested today on the Monsal viaduct.

At 'less than' £290 this will really need to be considered as my next phone. I need to investigate Nexus 5 vs Moto X vs One Plus
 
Hello United Kingdom! The OnePlus One will be available in your country for under 290 pounds! Join the forums and share your love for the One -> http://bit.ly/OnePlusForums

Cannot believe the attention heartbleed has been getting on the news today. DO NOT bother changing your passwords... ...yet.

The thing is still a problem, though more like 5% of servers are affected (not 66% a some are reporting).

When you do change them use something like last pass or keepass to make sure they are all different!
 
Due to the nature of the Heartbleed bug, you shouldn't change all your passwords just yet. LastPass will let you know which ones to change, and when:
This week, a giant security hole came to light that affects a large portion of the internet. As different sites recover, you'll need to change your passwords, and now LastPass tells you when to do so.

Probably preaching to the converted but this gave me a chuckle. I just hope +Google+ doesn't go too far in this direction.

I've been playing a little bit with 'lens blur', setting quality to Max definitely helps. There are a few other good tips in here.

Ooh. This looks interesting... updating now
 
Today we’re launching Google Camera, a new app for your Android phone or tablet that makes it easy to take quick photos and videos. And being behind the lens just got more fun with new creative picture modes.

Sleek Design. The 100% viewfinder gets out of your way while capturing the maximum resolution of the scene (no dropped pixels). And the extra large capture button is easy to press so your eyes never lose sight of the subject.

Lens Blur. Emphasize the subject while blurring the background for an SLR-like shot with shallow depth-of-field (or bokeh). You can even change the subject in focus after taking the shot.

Improved Panorama. New higher resolution panoramas capture the full width and detail of a scene.

Photo Sphere. Immersive 360 degree photo spheres let you look up, down and all around...now at up to 50 megapixels! For the first time available on non-Nexus devices.

Google Camera is now available on the Play store (http://goo.gl/llsZjx), and works on all phones and tablets running Android 4.4+ KitKat. We’re just getting started, and in the months ahead we'll make Google Camera available to more devices, helping make photography easier, faster and more fun.

Check out our Research Blog to learn more (http://goo.gl/lUDfi8).

Pretty basic pub fare, Steak and Ale pie, lasagne, etc. Food was not bad and reasonable value. The service was really good and they sorted out something for my kids (no specific kids menu). We went on a Saturday evening and I wouldn't have said it was full of 'noisy drunks' as suggested by the previous reviewer.
