As a twist off CMU's fence painting tradition, we painted the fence as a farewell gift for the Professor, +Todd Sedano. Wish you all the best, Sir. 
Farewell rspec... I have the best students. They painted a farewell message for me and included some rspec.

New stock camera app! 
Today we’re launching Google Camera, a new app for your Android phone or tablet that makes it easy to take quick photos and videos. And being behind the lens just got more fun with new creative picture modes.

Sleek Design. The 100% viewfinder gets out of your way while capturing the maximum resolution of the scene (no dropped pixels). And the extra large capture button is easy to press so your eyes never lose sight of the subject.

Lens Blur. Emphasize the subject while blurring the background for an SLR-like shot with shallow depth-of-field (or bokeh). You can even change the subject in focus after taking the shot.

Improved Panorama. New higher resolution panoramas capture the full width and detail of a scene.

Photo Sphere. Immersive 360 degree photo spheres let you look up, down and all at up to 50 megapixels! For the first time available on non-Nexus devices.

Google Camera is now available on the Play store (, and works on all phones and tablets running Android 4.4+ KitKat. We’re just getting started, and in the months ahead we'll make Google Camera available to more devices, helping make photography easier, faster and more fun.

Very useful for multi-tasking while watching videos! 
NiftySplit splits #Chrome viewing area into two side-by-side windows, showing links in a separate window. Great for comparing or reference.

An useful accessory! More convenient than the card, IMO.

Reddit is one amazing place for news, updates, hacks and even memes. Whatever your interest might be, there is a sub-reddit for it.

Attempted using reddit before, but didn't stick. I think it's time to really get started with it.

I use Android simply because it gives me the freedom to do anything I want. 

How about the other folks here? Why do you use Android?
Which Mobile OS do you prefer and Why? Do share your thoughts to see if they are in sync with what our author Kyle has said.
