Google's new Daydream View headset looks to be a great option for those looking to get an affordable start into virtual reality. Pair it with the Pixel or Pixel XL, and you have one cool package of function and fun. Keep reading to see how you can enter to win this awesome duo for yourself!

TIME magazine has a great article up today about one of the most important things we're working on at Google: the universal assistant. Simply searching for web pages isn't what people want, nowadays: they want to be able to talk into their computer (or into their phone, or simply speak into the void) and have it understand what they mean, what they want, and make it happen.

I'm extremely excited about this area: So excited, in fact, that I've made it into my day job. For the past several months, I've been focusing on this full-time, and this is what I expect to be spending the next several years on: making "ambient computing" -- computing that is seamlessly present wherever you are, so easily accessible that you barely even realize that you're interacting with a computer -- a worldwide reality.

You may not know this, but before working on Google's social products, I spent years building major chunks of our search systems and our systems infrastructure; the "universal computer" has long been a dream of mine.

I often tell people that "any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced." That's more than just a quip: the defining feature of magic is that it transforms your wish for what the world should be like into physical reality, without you having to perform any intervening steps. ("Abracadabra" is not just a nonsense word: it's Aramaic, "avra ke-davra," "may it come to pass as I have spoken." It's all about your words turning into reality.)

To achieve that, we have to go far beyond simple things like search: we have to have systems that make it easy for people to interact with and extend the assistant to do everything conceivable. That's where I'm spending my time, and I'm looking forward to being able to tell people more in the future!
It's right out of Star Trek—literally

Samsung has taken the wraps off of the Galaxy Note 7, and as is always the case with a big phone reveal there's a lot to take in. To get up to speed with _everything_ surrounding the latest Note, we have you covered right here.

Looks promising 
Timberwolf formulas closely resemble the diet of wild canids and felines, and contain a profusion of unique and distinct ingredients rarely found in most pet foods. Our philosophy dictates high levels of animal proteins, a rich balance of essential fatty acids, herbs, fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts faithfully formulated with the nutritional requirements of your pets. All of our formulas are completely balanced as a stand-alone diet, but are d...

Great analysis and finally some objective rational

Great Experience. Staff was friendly, helpful and took the time to get me a car on 60min notice and then swapped it out the next day for something more my size. I can say this was the best rental experience I have ever had.

They put a $1400 hold on my debit card for a two night stay!!! Then told me it would released in seven business days, 5 days after I checked out. So they get to play with my money for 12 days for a two night stay. Unbelievable!
