Most companies are leaving their users in the dark about this. It's also ignorant of companies to just assume they weren't affected by the vulnerability, if they had the affected version of the SSL encryption protocol, because someone exploiting it would leave no trace.

Today we’re launching Google Camera, a new app for your Android phone or tablet that makes it easy to take quick photos and videos. And being behind the lens just got more fun with new creative picture modes.

Sleek Design. The 100% viewfinder gets out of your way while capturing the maximum resolution of the scene (no dropped pixels). And the extra large capture button is easy to press so your eyes never lose sight of the subject.

Lens Blur. Emphasize the subject while blurring the background for an SLR-like shot with shallow depth-of-field (or bokeh). You can even change the subject in focus after taking the shot.

Improved Panorama. New higher resolution panoramas capture the full width and detail of a scene.

Photo Sphere. Immersive 360 degree photo spheres let you look up, down and all around...now at up to 50 megapixels! For the first time available on non-Nexus devices.

Google Camera is now available on the Play store (http://goo.gl/llsZjx), and works on all phones and tablets running Android 4.4+ KitKat. We’re just getting started, and in the months ahead we'll make Google Camera available to more devices, helping make photography easier, faster and more fun.

Check out our Research Blog to learn more (http://goo.gl/lUDfi8).

Ideas to Move Forward  - 
 
"“UNBECOMING.” “Miss Congeniality.” Not sufficiently “ladylike.” In politics, these words and phrases have long been used to belittle female candidates. But now, female politicians are increasingly trying to rethink — and reclaim — how language shapes how they are perceived."

Love this --> “I wanted to be validated in the fact that I had ambition and the fact that I was aggressive about the things I believed in and that I was highly opinionated,” Ms. McCaskill said in an interview.

A study that actually means something about videogames. Poorly made game mechanics could lead to aggression.

Aggression from video games 'linked to incompetence'

Horribly sad. There's also a 3-month old baby girl, but thankfully she was removed from the home.

Before people go off saying it's the fault of video games, it's not. He made the conscious decision to take his son's life just so he could go back to what he was doing. If the outcome didn't happen now, it might have happened later down the road for any reason.
 
According to sheriff's deputies in Citrus County Florida a father has been charged with smothering his 16-month-old son because the child's crying was interfering with the man's ability to play video games on his Xbox. Cody Wygant, age 24 claims that his son's incessant crying interfered with his ability to compete in his game and thus in the wee hours of the morning he covered the child's mouth and nose with his hand until he became "lethargic" and then put him into a playpen under some blankets. Some may say that the Xbox video game technology is to blame and that the smothering occurred because of video game rage.

Some five hours after Wygant had satisfied his entertainment needs on the Xbox and with a marathon session of the television show Fringe, he checked on his son. By that time, the child had apparently suffered respiratory failure as was evidenced by his blue color and failure to respond. When medical help arrived, it was determined that the child was not breathing and he was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

Wygant is also the father and primary caregiver of a 3-month-old daughter who has been removed from the home and is in the custody of the Department of Children and Families. The relatively young father has been charged with third degree murder and the willful neglect of a child and is being held without bail at the Citrus County Jail. Wygant's girlfriend, who is the mother of both children, has said she was not at home when the alleged smothering of their son occurred and has not been charged with any crime...http://guardianlv.com/2014/04/video-game-rage-father-smothers-crying-child-to-play-xbox/

Waterton Lake Eclispe

Recorded on April 15th, this total lunar eclipse sequence looks south down icy Waterton Lake from the Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada, planet Earth. The most distant horizon includes peaks in Glacier National Park, USA. An exposure every 10 minutes captured the Moon's position and eclipse phase, as it arced, left to right, above the rugged skyline and Waterton town lights. In fact, the sequence effectively measures the roughly 80 minute duration of the total phase of the eclipse. Around 270 BC, the Greek astronomer Aristarchus also measured the duration of lunar eclipses - though probably without the benefit of digital clocks and cameras. Still, using geometry, he devised a simple and impressively accurate way to calculate the Moon's distance, in terms of the radius of planet Earth, from the eclipse duration. This modern eclipse sequence also tracks the successive positions of Mars, above and right of the Moon, bright star Spica next to the reddened lunar disk, and Saturn to the left and below.
