Nice!  Now maybe 100+ years after it was written, we'll actually be able to hear "Happy Birthday" performed in restaurants again!

This.  Unchecking this box (in Chrome's settings) makes the omnibox much less aggressive with inline auto-completion, while still showing potential completions in the dropdown.  It still sometimes likes to fill in results and highlight them, meaning the backspace key does not actually delete the last character that was typed...this is especially annoying when the autocomplete happens quickly and in response to a typo.  I can't believe they get away with this, and with making comments like this:

"As has been said numerous times, we will not ever provide an option to disable inline autocompletion entirely."

But at least I figured out how to remove 90% of the pain that "feature" causes!

I knew the Olympics were big business, but I had no idea they were more than a billion a pop!  Crazy..

My Nexus 7 arrived!  After nearly a month of waiting, here's what was awaiting me before I could use the thing.

Luckily, it was worth the wait.  It's a pretty slick device.  Even smoother and more responsive than my Galaxy Nexus.  I wish it weighed a little less -- my hands were tired after a few minutes of using it -- but I'm not sure technology is there yet to accomplish that.
Useful warning video for those who odered a Nexus 7 but haven't received it yet.

Montage: Unboxing the Nexus 7 is fun!

This is a really awesome idea...assuming the translations are at least close to accurate.
Immersion in a foreign language is one of the fastest paths to fluency. Of course, most of us can’t just zip off to Paris for a year to learn French. What we do have, though, is automatic translation technology. That got a few of us in Creative Lab thinking: could you simulate the immersion just a bit on the websites you visit every day?

To find out, we collaborated with Use All Five (http://useallfive.com) to work up a Chrome extension that uses the Google Translate API to translate intermittent phrases on a web page. Et voila! You can now browse the web in Frenglish, Spanglish or even Tagaloglish. But don’t cancel your Mandarin classes yet: this is just a little experiment that may delight (or infuriate) the neurolinguists in the house. If you want to play with it, you can install it here: http://goo.gl/i3fGX. Glücklich learning!
