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).

Can't decide if this is an error message, commentary, or decent title for his next tour.

I actually really liked the last episode, maybe because I am married :)
I also watched Series 1 ep 3 last night and I think it is my favourite so far. I just can't resist Hitler jokes and impressions.

Great article.
 
I wrote a thing about what it's like to be a Product Manager. 
a janitor, essentially.

You know that's a homage to the first Godzilla film, right? It was shown in portrait to fit in the awesome height of the monster.

Incredible food. I had the ravioli, black cod and chocolate fondant with the recommended wines. Couldn't fault it; all perfect.
