Standing ovation for Google on this one.
 
I am going to get crucified (see what I did there?) in Germany for not being a Google hating intellectual, but: THANK YOU GOOGLE!

Job well done to the Chrome beta team.

The new Share option reuses the last app you shared with. Tapping the icon will launch that app, instead of calling up the application list.

It's the small things.

Yet another fool trying to cause damage to the Tesla brand, and losing hard to the data.

Fire alarm testing in the morning, on my day off? I think not. Stick that in your pipe, fire department.

Unfortunately this video's a tough one to link to directly,  but worth the watch for anyone interested. Stephen Wolfram does a fantastic job highlighting many of the capabilities of the Wolfram language.

"I am more concerned about the impact of putting this perspective on a respected show like The National. It legitimizes pseudoscientific ideas – which may have serious adverse health consequences – and makes it more difficult for the public to differentiate between real and junk science. "

Not that Dropbox has ever been able to compete with Google Drive's capabilities, but this should help clarify who's worth keeping your data with.

Nothing amazing if you've been to Simpatico or other great Greek restaurants, but still pretty reasonable compared to others in the area. Price is on the reasonable side for the portions, but could be improved. Staff was pleasant, and left me alone to enjoy the meal, which earns points in my book.

Great service, even better food. The price point might be higher for those more used to the food courts in the area, but for a cafe in Vancouver's business district, the price is very reasonable for the quality and amount received.

Friendly and helpful staff in a dirty, run down location. If the place didn't smell like a litter box, I'd be more inclined to use this location regularly, instead of as a last resort.

White Rose is normally an excellent place to go for dry cleaning. If you come in early enough and their workload isn't too high for the day, they'll often be able to get you in same day for a few dollars extra. It's a family operated location, and the staff is usually upbeat and very polite.

Excellent quality, great service. Given the bustle of the location, and the lack of attention to decor, the Golden Swan may lack appeal to Westerners, but for people willing to experiment, and experience more traditional styles of Chinese food, the staff is very accommodating. Price is only slightly above what one might expect to pay.

While the location has its deals and quality goods, the staff is a complete joke. Professionalism varies immensely depending on who you get, and when mistakes are made, they are dismissive, unapologetic, and entirely unresponsive to customer feedback. Your voice falls on deaf ears at Tip Top Tailors, so speak with your wallet instead, and go elsewhere.
