The map used by +Breaking News on their site [http://goo.gl/wAHX] is one of the best maps mashups I've seen!  Careful thought to how much/little to surface the map and the toggles are both informative and beautiful depending on what you enable.  Heat circles and sizing are spot on and rollovers give you what you need quickly. Brilliant!  Kudos to you +Cory Bergman, +Aaron Edwards.  In other news, I'm completely addicted to their Android app [http://goo.gl/JxBLs].  Such smart news curation via Twitter.

How #Beer is made in GIF form!
Watch how manufacturing beer at Anheuser-Busch's St. Louis brewery (making 15 million barrels a year) looks different from Perennial Artisan Ales's microbrewery in south city.

In all fairness +The Daily Show completely mocked cameras on mobile phones! 
Ed Helms concludes the camera phone combines the rapid battery depletion of a high-powered digital camera with the image production capability of a phone.

For any of my aerospace loving friends, a few days ago I flew from JFK to LHR and the 777 plane I was on set a world record by flying the speed of sound across the atlantic! The pilot was pretty ecstatic when he announced what had happened upon arrival. 
A British Airways flight traveling from New York to London Heathrow broke a record as it approached the speed of sound after riding a powerful jet stream, making the journey in just over 5 hours.

+Carlos Cuesta that's not really correct. The ground speed was close to the speed of sound, but your airspeed would have been substantially lower. (By the vector subtraction of the wind speed.)

The 777 has nowhere near enough thrust to reach Mach 1, and the airframe and wings are not designed to withstand the forces.

Still, super fast travel time is always really cool.

Hey - I'm curious about the success people are having with the apps they built for the Google Cloud Developer Challenge and also the Google Places API Developer Challenge. Sorry, got married and went off-grid for a while - would love to hear updates!!!

When I was a kid and we were vacationing in Europe the border controllers would wave us through as soon as they saw a glimpse of our Finnish passports. Many times just looking at the cover. XD
