Spam callers be gone! Today, we’re beginning to update your Google Phone app with spam protection on #Nexus and #AndroidOne devices to warn you about potential spam callers and give you the ability to block and report these numbers. If you already have Caller ID turned on, spam protection will be available on your phone once your app updates to the latest version. Learn more: https://goo.gl/FFRCP1

Interesting profile of Belinda Johnson @ Airbnb. It's always interesting sometimes to get an outside perspective of how things should be done that differs from the typical and status quo. It's important since that's the only way you wont stagnate and find yourself just a sheep in the herd.

I wonder what the big deal is about Sulu being gay in Star Trek (the newest movie). Have you seen TOS?
For 50 years, the many incarnations of Star Trek have been boldly going where other shows wouldn’t.

I love @elonmusk's second part of his master plan. I would love to see something home solar that is dead simple, connected, and versatile. The self driving thing and the subsequent ability to turn your own car into a utility sounds more and more like the future direction. Basically AirBnB for cars.

It worries me to think that in this day and age, "Eliza" is considered a startup opportunity.
