In den Augen vieler Ärzte zählen Impfungen zu den bedeutsamsten Erfindungen der modernen Medizin. Dennoch kursieren im Internet zahllose Blogposts und Foreneinträge, die das Gegenteil behaupten: Imfpstoffe seien unwirksam und voller gefährlicher Inhaltsstoffe, so die Kritiker.

Today, on my lunch break at work, I was checking out my phone. Just looking at it. A coworker stepped up and asked what I was doing. I told him. He laughed and as he was waking away, said "it's just a phone dude".

Oh, it's so much more. It just so happened that I was thinking about the fact that the device I held in my hand, made it impossible to be ignorant. It holds all the answers of humanity. It connects me to people all over the world. As I type this, I wonder how many different people from different countries will read these words...

Anyway, I told him pretty much what I typed above. He just repeated himself, " it's just a phone ".

Anyone else see their smartphone like I see mine?

Die Bonner Wettbewerbshüter werden kein Missbrauchsverfahren gegen den Suchmaschinenanbieter Google einleiten. Die Beschwerde der Verlage sei unbegründet, sagte Kartellamtschef Andreas Mundt.

Be honest, when was the last time you read the label on your favorite t-shirt or most comfortable pair of jeans? Probably a while ago, right? These clothing labels will convince you to look again - they aren’t your usual “do not mix with colors” or “do not boil me in water over 60 degrees, thanks very much” kind of thing.

Today we launched Google Handwriting Input (http://goo.gl/qWWhDU), which lets users handwrite text on their Android mobile device as an additional input method for any Android app, supporting 82 languages in 20 distinct scripts. It works with both printed and cursive writing input with or without a stylus. Beyond text input, it also provides a fun way to enter hundreds of emojis by drawing them (simply press and hold the ‘enter’ button to switch modes). It also works with or without an Internet connection. Learn more at http://goo.gl/j7lFbC

Yeah, and maybe if we try to insult more muslims, they'll finally understand how tolerant we all are in western europe, and that you should never forcefully suppress bad jokes http://www.newyorker.com/news/daily-comment/the-case-of-dieudonn-a-french-comedians-hate

it is our moral responsibility!

If you are traveling as much as I do, then you will love this new Google feature
 
Back from your Thanksgiving trip and already planning the next one for Christmas? We can’t help you avoid traffic or airport chaos, but we can help make sure you have all your travel details in one place.

Just say “Ok Google, show me my trip” and it’s all there for you, complete with addresses, flight and reservation numbers, hotel and restaurant bookings (as long as you have reservations in Gmail). Try it on the Google app on your Android or iPhone and get going! ...And don’t forget to write!

Beautiful hotel but the service is crap. Problems with housekeeping almost every day. Had way better experiences at hotels in NYC that cost less than half the price
