Google thinks "iPhone" is the most likely way to finish the sentence "Microwaving my...". I suppose I should also be concerned that "students " is in the top 3.

ARGH! "In a call for free markets and open platforms, ...Republicans want to enable and empower you. We want to be the iPhone party." If they really wanted to do that, they'd be the +Android party!

If the GOP ideology is in opposition to paternalism and in favor of self-determination, iPhone sure as heck isn't the right tech analogy.

Wow, just did my first scan with +Google Drive. It was terrible. Immediately scanned same doc, under exact same conditions, with +CamScanner, and it was perfect. (Nexus S 4G)

Sorry +Google Drive, I want to use you for scanning, but you're not ready yet. And to +CamScanner: I'm sorry I doubted you.

The pie charts below are from Tim Cook's presentation at #wwdc2013 . Aside from the inherent issues related to comparing iOS versions with Android versions (functionality offered, mission of the OS, etc.), I was surprised that Apple used pie charts to show the comparison.

From a #datavisualization  perspective, this would have been more effectively communicated using a 100% column chart with two columns.

I threw together a mock-up of what the chart should have looked like, while mimicking Apple's presentation theme. It's not as pretty as a final product would look like, but you can see that it is much easier to compare the relative shares across the two operating systems than one can do via pie charts.

(see +Phandroid's article for more on this Apples-to-robots comparison http://phandroid.com/2013/06/10/apple-vs-androi/)

Notification for new #Google #Babel (unified communication) service. I'm excited for this to be live. Is this a #leak?

Holding the "experts" to account. I love it, as would the guys at Mark May Be Wrong (defunct, but awesome, blog that did the same for college football, but was ahead if its time - i.e., pre-crowdsourcing)

Great new feature from Google Scholar. Does citations for students right in search.
