Apple has done it again ... patenting ideas which are not their own.  Recently, an Apple patent application has been made public regarding transparent texting.  This is not new ... I used to do this on my 2010 Nexus S with a simple app from the Google Play Store (similar to the one in the video below, from 2012).

From the company that brought you slide to unlock, the virtual keyboard, the notification window, 'multi-tasking', rounded edges and much much more, now brings you transparent texting.

To my surprise, Google ripped my favourite news reader right out of my hands, and forced me to use Newsstand. I don't hate Newsstand, but Currents had a superior flow, swiping from feed to feed. With Newsstand, you have to back out and select the feed. That's fine on a laptop, but inconvenient on a tablet or phone.

The latest Youtube video from Jackson Galaxy, host for 'My Cat From Hell'.  After adopting my Silver Tabby from the Humane Society 4 years ago, I've learned so much from Jackson's TV show, and Youtube videos.  Being a dog lover, I found myself treating my cat like a dog.  But cat owners will tell you cats are very different, and there is a steep learning curve when understanding their behaviour and needs.

+Jackson Galaxy You are on Twitter, Instagram, Youtube and Facebook ... You should open a community following on Google+ for us google plus(ers).  I love your show, informative Youtube videos, and your involvement with feral cats.  Keep up the great, educating work you do.

Nintendo has suspended it's Swapnote service on its handheld system because some people (both young and old) have been exchanging not-so Nintendo-friendly comments and photos through Swapnote.  But a component in Pokemon X and Y called the Holoca(u)ster is not so offensive ...

Seriously though ... parents, do your own parenting.  A great control feature exists, called PARENTAL CONTROLS.  Make sure your kids aren't exposed to trash, or creating their own internet trash.  Stop blaming others for not doing your parenting for you.

I completely agree with you warren. Safeguards are there to be used so its up to the parents to make sure that parental controls are set on those devices

No transit route planning in Toronto this morning, on Google Maps. I hope this is just temporary ...

Route planning monkeys were probably too busy watching the Canada-US hockey game...

So that's what this new application is for (that magically showed up in my app drawer).

Google Now is constantly being updated, but I wasn't aware of all these voice search ideas. I love the way Google's Knowledge Graph algorithm makes voice search results more rich and useful. Granted, a few of these examples only work within the U.S. at the moment.

Nice break from Star Bucks. Environment is relaxing, coffee is excellent, and the tables are not cluttered with individuals on their Apple computers, blocking 3 and 4 seats a table. Service is very friendly. My new coffee hangout. UPDATE: Unfortunately it has been turned into another Star Bucks ...

Great lattes. They need to put a time limit on the single coffee drinkers hogging an entire table for their macs.
