The 'Auto Awesome' feature on G+ is, well, just awesome and an exemplary demo of something Larry Page talked about at IO: 

“technology should do the hard work so that people can get on with doing the things that make them happiest”

Amazing
 
Google's Magic Picture Machine goes beyond science fiction.

Science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke said that "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." But even Clarke never envisioned Google’s Magic Picture Machine.

The new Google+ photo and video features announced today by +Vic Gundotra are obviously an incredible benefit to users, unlike anything else out there. 

But can we take a moment to marvel at the technology behind it?

Let's start with a magic trick:

US (NYT) reaction to London ceremony: 

'Britain offered a display of humor and humbleness that can only stem from a deep-rooted sense of superiority' 

And our dearly beloved French: 

'Ah oui. Les corgis'

Great quote from Brian Chesky, CEO of Airbnb

'Our product and service is only as good as much as we talk to you (the hosts). We will get better as we spend more time with you'

The way we buy things on our phones and tablets could just be made obsolete if #apple allows us to use their finger print ID to buy anything, anywhere online.

If #apple so chooses they could change the face of m-commerce. Personally I can't wait to view sites on my phone and be invited to 'touch here' to buy. No more Facebook connect, no more enter your credit card details, no more remembering passwords. The combination of fingers and iTune account means #apple could end up owning the mobile wallet.
