Quite a useful new Google+ Activity Log feature.

#GooglePlusUpdate #ns
Google+ Activity Log
Google+ now features a list of all your actions including posts, comments, +1s, votes, blocks, and much more. You can access your Activity Log on Android, iOS, and the Web from the Settings menu.

Filter the list to find recent comments or other actions you've made (I personally find this very useful when I want to re-find conversations I've participated in) or easily remove any action you've taken on Google+ using the X on each list item.

As usual, you can tell us what you think about this new feature using the Send Feedback menu item. Thanks~

Nikon enters the action cameras market with a 360.

I still think the 360fly looks cooler, but with Nikon behind the just debuted KeyMission 360, I'm guessing a lot of people will take notice.

GoPro is so yesterday, check out the 360fly camera.

According to USA Today the 360fly camera which debuted at CES2016 is the size of a little ball, has one lens and a rich 4K image sensor inside, to take spherical view videos of the world, without complicated editing after the shoot.

And from the the 360fly.com website, 360fly captures your life in immersive, interactive 360° video that can be shared instantly on social media and relived fully in virtual reality via our mobile and desktop apps.

Brew your own beer in 2 hours from dozens of recipes.

Here's something to put next to your Keurig, that brews from your choice of dozens of online receipes and takes about 2 hours. Release expected in May with PicoBrew taking pre-orders at $599.

- Brews 5-liter mini-kegs of beer at a time
- Uses PicoPak pre-packaged ingredient packs
- Customize each beer to your taste
- Brews in about 2 hours
- Wi-fi connected for automatic recipe download and brew-tracking

At $449 Somabar's robotic home bartender from which you can choose from 300 preprogrammed recipes (according to The Verge), looks like another fun toy to have in the kitchen.

A new year to learn new things! Mind the Dunning–Kruger effect.

Setting goals for 2016, do you feel you have a lot to learn? Sometimes I feel like there's still so much to learn, versus how little I actually know. So for those of you who feel like there's more to learn than you can keep up with, this is something interesting I happened upon.

"The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which relatively unskilled individuals suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly assessing their ability to be much higher than it really is. The bias was first experimentally observed by David Dunning and Justin Kruger of Cornell University in 1999. Dunning and Kruger attributed this bias to a metacognitive inability of the unskilled to recognize their own ineptitude and evaluate their own ability accurately. Their research also suggests corollaries: highly skilled individuals may underestimate their relative competence, they may erroneously assume that tasks which are easy for them are also easy for others."  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning%E2%80%93Kruger_effect #goalsetting   #ns

IoT innovation we can expect to see more of in 2016.

This is quite an excellent rundown on many of the IoT (Internet of Things) innovations we can expect to be featured at the upcoming CES (International Consumer Electronics Show) next week, as well as ideas that are expected to continue gaining in popularity this year.

How a Dry January reduces consumption and can improve your health.

I thought this was a pretty good idea and interesting study in this article. By temporarily suspending intake of certain less than healthy indulgences we might frequently enjoy (coffee or sweets, to name a few more), I have observed longer term consumption is usually reduced, because this seems to acts as a type of recalibration of our endorphins (or tolerance levels), after which a healthier moderation tends to follow.
