Plays nice, even on the low cost Chromebooks. ;)
 
Hey, I just released a new game today, and besides the usual platforms, there is also a ChromeOS version available! 

The game is a retro arcade game, with great soundtrack, many unlockables, and even voice-acting in cut-scenes!

Check out the game download links (including Chrome marketplace link) here:

and check the trailer :)

Google Music Chrome App, a great step forward, congrats to the app team. And congrats to my teammates who helped build out the app platform, we all had a few line items to fix up to enable this.
Google Music has finally enabled browser-based uploading of files, something Chromebook owners have been holding out for.

Lens Blur in the new Google Camera app
Posted by Carlos Hernández, Software Engineer

One of the biggest advantages of SLR cameras (http://goo.gl/XeAhti) over camera phones is the ability to achieve shallow depth of field effects (also known as bokeh, http://goo.gl/xHR774), which makes the object of interest "pop" by bringing the foreground into focus and de-emphasizing the background. 

Achieving this optical effect has traditionally required a big lens and aperture, and therefore hasn’t been possible using the camera on your mobile phone or tablet. That all changes with Lens Blur, a new mode in the Google Camera app (http://goo.gl/UpMubk). 

Lens Blur  replaces the need for a large optical system with computer vision algorithms and optimization techniques that are run entirely on the mobile device, simulating a larger lens and aperture in order to creating a 3D model of the world. 

To learn more about the algorithms and optimization that makes Lens Blur  possible, head over to the Google Research Blog, linked below. We hope you have fun with your bokeh experiments!

This is a great summary of the last year of work on Blink, the Chromium fork of WebKit. Lots of good work, but with an eye for games notice the performance, graphics, and Adobe's canvas work.

git difftool --dir-diff origin/master...

Seriously great to have --dir-diff built into git now! It allows you to see an overview in a directory structure of the diff, drill into any files as needed, and make changes to your working copy.

Pumpkins, huge corn maze for adults or older children, smaller corn and hay mazes for little ones, pig race, pumpkin sling shot and more. It's pretty exposed, bring sun gear, and not quaint, but the activities are good.

Had a wonderful 9th anniversary (traditional gift, pottery) "2 people, 2 hours, 2 projects" class. We enjoyed the time there, and just got the final glazed pieces, they look great! Major thanks to the friendly staff.
