Excellent!
 
Music was made to be loved. We just made loving it easier. With Google Play Music for Chrome, you can now keep all the music you love in the cloud so that you always have it. To add new music, enable the “Google Play Music for Chrome” lab at play.google.com/music/listen#/labs. Then simply drag and drop songs into your Google Play Music library. If you have a lot of music in iTunes or if you want new music to be added automatically, you can configure this by clicking “Add Music” at the top right of play.google.com/music

But, wait, there’s more! This new lab has extra goodies. You can now open a handy mini-player by clicking the arrow in the bottom right corner of our web app so you can see what’s playing or skip songs from any tab. Plus, download songs, albums and playlists directly from the web. Let us know what you think! 

We built this lab using Chrome Apps and Native Client technology, developers can learn more at developer.chrome.com/apps/about_apps and developer.chrome.com/native-client. Uploads, downloads and the mini player are just the start, and we are excited to push the boundaries of what’s possible on the web.

Utah! Learned how to snowboard at 17 at Snowbird! Gorgeous place. I Wonder if the giant tapestries are still hung on the walls in Dick Bass's hotel. Enjoy!

Indeed.
 
How Google deals with search warrants.  You should watch this.  It has cows. Also, "Nice Moustache."

Way of a Warrant

If I become a dictator I will hire a lot of evil lawyers and one cow.
Why one cow?
This way everyone will forget about the lawyers.

My guess would be that it's usa only for now. Probably because of what counts as charity varies in different regions along with differing tax regulations.

But I really wish it would be released in eu as well. I believe in the model more than most others in place today.

Thank goodness, I was worried I was going to have to become a belter. (NIven fans, I speak to you!)
 
If this result is reproducible -- and I suspect it will be -- the consequences for physics are extraordinary. (Among other things, it will explain why electric charge is quantized) 

No time to write a lengthy explanation right now, so this one is mostly for the technically minded of you in the audience. The experiment article was published in Nature, and those bastards appear not to have even posted it on the arXiv, so only people willing to deal with Nature (which I'm basically not) can see it at the moment. The theory article, on the other hand, is here: http://arxiv.org/pdf/0903.4732.pdf . The theorists basically wrote a paper giving fairly detailed experimental instructions for how to build a Dirac monopole in the spin field of a spinor Bose-Einstein condensate, and the experimentalists did it and it worked. I'd call this a very clear sign that no, nature doesn't have some kind of trick up its sleeve preventing the existence of monopoles.

Hey, maybe Blas Cabrera's famous monopole was the real thing after all... 

(Bonus points in the theory article for studying how this synthetic monopole would decay when you turned the power off. It flies off the edge and transforms into a boojum. I can't think of a more appropriate thing for a magnetic monopole to decay into.)

+Wes Peters Check the url at the bottom of the post it says onetoday.google.com. Google does a lot more giving then taking, good chance that this is a great charity!
