This is cool! http://goo.gl/FFRCP1 Now if we could only reject calls with the "invalid phone#" tone http://youtu.be/Qv0tZFIdtho so they take you off their telemarketing list or put you on the "do not call" one!
 
Spam callers be gone! Today, we’re beginning to update your Google Phone app with spam protection on #Nexus and #AndroidOne devices to warn you about potential spam callers and give you the ability to block and report these numbers. If you already have Caller ID turned on, spam protection will be available on your phone once your app updates to the latest version. Learn more: https://goo.gl/FFRCP1

I can't wait! I've been wondering what Google's response to this would be. I don't actually get my "private" or "unknown" number calls, but some of my mom's healthcare providers, plus my mom herself block caller ID so it would be hard to turn that off.

Today's the day... waited a whole damn month!! Well almost. The first rsvn for 4 available for me when I booked on Jun 18 was today, Jul 14. Mini-review: the XLBs were quite good, but as I had anticipated, while they're better than pretty much everything in California, it wasn't as good as the DTF in Taipei. Its location at Westfield Valley Fair also meant high rent thus high food cost to customers. I'd say unless you were going to Taiwan, just go to a DTF in LA (or Seattle) on your next visit there... no wait and undoubtedly better prices. #DinTaiFung  http://dintaifungusa.com Also the Murky News did a review just several days ago even though it opened in May (presumably because they had to wait a month too!) http://mercurynews.com/entertainment/ci_30106050

Woohoo! New awesome (settings) functionality now available from the #GmailAPI!! http://goo.gl/uYD1kO #Gmail   #GoogleApps  
 
Today, we're extending the Gmail API with new endpoints for managing settings like filters, forwarding addresses & auto-forwarding, IMAP & POP settings, send-as aliases, signatures, and the vacation responder. This means developers will have now the ability to: Retrieve and update signatures for send-as aliases, configure forwarding to external addresses, use HTML in vacation messages, and manipulate settings for gmail.com accounts.

The new documentation has been integrated with the previously current documentation, so the new stuff may be invisible to you. Start at https://developers.google.com/gmail/api/guides/ and look for "Manage Settings" in the LHS navbar.

Trying to book a 4-night stay in Vegas at a Hilton with points. Let's see... $159USD/night or points where I'd have to pay $1524 to "buy" all the extra points I need? Thanks #Hilton for making it easy for us to use our points... NOT! (Honestly, 56k points/night? Isn't that a little steep?) Sometimes I think the whole points thing is a scam. Just for kicks, what if I wanted a 3B suite to invite friends/family? $759/night or buy enough points for $27,732?!? BWA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!

Check out my latest video and posts on the new Google Sheets API!
 
Introducing the Google Sheets API v4: Transferring data from a SQL database to a Sheet

At Google I/O 2016, the Google Sheets team launched their next generation API (http://goo.gl/syZllV). This updated API has many new features that weren’t available in previous versions of the API, now giving developers access to most of the functionality found in the desktop or mobile user interfaces.

In this video, Google engineer Wesley Chun (http://google.com/+WesleyChun) demonstrates a short Python script that reads rows out of a relational database, creates a new Google Sheet, and transfers the data to that Sheet. Hope this helps kick starts your next project with the API. To dive deeper into the sample script, check out this blogpost (http://goo.gl/qr1BI6), and please give us your feedback below and tell us what topics you would like to see in future episodes!

What does @Google have to do with the history of #PokemonGo ? More than you think. http://www.forbes.com/sites/ryanmac/2016/07/26/monster-game/ In other news, 2 men fall off a cliff trying to catch them all: http://cnn.com/2016/07/15/health/pokemon-go-players-fall-down-cliff
Last year, John Hanke was head of a Google-owned startup that was ready to be absorbed back into the larger company. This is the story of how he spun off Niantic Labs, cut a deal with Nintendo and created the most successful mobile game of all time.

Many people stranded or waiting to get to their destinations due to the Southwest computer meltdown from Wednesday. Groups of ppl desperately charging their devices so scenes like this aren't unique. Yes, all 5 devices are ours and yes, i carry an extension cable. ;-)

We all know how to read traffic on Google Maps right? Red means traffic is pretty slow, and dark red means it's just inching along. However when the protesters shut down interstate 880, I learned about dashed, dark, dark red (practically black), which pretty much means it's a parking lot baby!

FINAL REMINDER for Apps Script developers. "NATIVE" mode is no more. In case you missed it: http://googleappsdeveloper.blogspot.com/2015/10/google-apps-script-update-to-htmlservice.html
 
NATIVE sandbox mode now shutdown

Last October the EMULATED and NATIVE modes for Apps Script's HtmlService were deprecated, and a gradual sunset plan was announced.

As of today, that process is now complete. All scripts, including existing ones, will operate exclusively in IFRAME sandbox mode. Calls to HtmlOutput.setSandboxMode() are now no-ops.

If you have scripts, web apps, or add-ons using the HtmlService that you did not migrate over to IFRAME, they may function differently than expected (or not at all).

Happy scripting!

Hawking FTW:

"A demagogue who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator."
-- Stephen Hawking, describing Donald Trump

"For a so-called genius, this was an epic fail. If Professor Hawking wants to do some damage, maybe he should try talking in English next time."
-- Corey Lewandowski, Trump's campaign manager

"Trump bad man. Real bad man."
-- Stephen Hawking, later that day

True, although he did say the first sentence on the UK television. I suppose reality starts fading (evenly) from that point on.
