Well... I'm an iOS person, but if I was ever going to switch to Android, it'd most likely be a Pixel. Seems like that's always been the best option for high-quality hardware and no vendor cruft.

Curious what the top 100 Google searches are for "How to" do something? Google created how-to-fix-a-toilet.com to show top "how to" searches by country. It's amazing how so many people (including myself!) rely on technology and search engines for simple things that may have been common knowledge 15-50 years ago.

What seemingly simple things have you searched for recently? Last week I had to search for "how to sew on a button," which I know my Mom or Grandma would never have had to ask about or search for.

I've definitely searched how to tie a tie. Ha.  My most recent problem I've searched for was how to water grass/lawn.  I've been struggling to keep my lawn healthy and never knew how to water it properly.  I found out the best time to water is early in the morning and to ensure the soil is saturated well enough by sticking a screw driver into the soil with little resistance = a happy lawn.  I water it about 10 minutes each morning and its looking great again.

Also, my mother in law's Chromebook stopped loading the OS so I Googled How to reinstall Chromebook and fixed it in about an hour.

Fun link.

How to tie a tie was a really common one for me many years ago! (I did eventually memorize it though.)

Most recent was for fixing a stuck disc drive in an original Xbox. Fortunately, "percussive maintenance" (a.k.a hitting it) was a simple solution that actually worked!

Very cool page. I'll need to go back to it to play it around and explore some more.

Assigning comments to people in Google Docs
Subject of the week | What software update developed in the past year were you the most excited about?
A favorite update of mine was in Google Docs last fall. They added the ability to "assign" a comment to someone that you mention in the comment. I've found it very handy when using docs for meeting notes that have to-do items. Also great when there's a document that several people need to contribute to. Assign each section to the appropriate person and they can mark as resolved when they're finished with their update.

A little background, I keep getting errors in google Chrome (NXDOMAIN, DNS Probe errors).  

I keep getting a 8012 Event ID error code 9005 when I flush and then register DNS on WIN 10 machines.  
I have setup a reverse DNS zone and see the PTR records for those very machines fill the list.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Oy... You ever make some changes to the underlying data columns in a spreadsheet and then not realize that it inadvertently messed up a whole bunch of other pivot tables and charts as a result? Well, I just did... Fortunately, the Google Sheets revision history feature is pretty darn good and just saved me from having to do a bunch of annoying fixes. Thanks, Google!

Undo buttons are the best.
I kid you not, but whenever I do anything klutzy in real life (knock over a mug, bang my shin on something, etc.) I mentally try to hit Ctrl-Z. Sadly, it never works... ;-)

Keyboard shortcuts in Google Sheets for inserting a new row:

In Chrome on Windows or Linux:
  • Alt + I, then R
In IE or Firefox on Windows or Linux:
  • Alt + Shift + I, then R
On a mac:
  • Ctrl + Option + I, then R

Just remember I for Insert and R for row.

It's funny... I'm incredibly used to using keyboard shortcuts at the OS level and in desktop apps, but I often don't think to check for keyboard shortcuts in web apps. JIRA has been the one major exception—at some point early on in my use of it, they did a good job of encouraging shortcut usage—but this is a great reminder to investigate keyboard shortcut support in other common web apps.

Chrome: Select Multiple Tabs
Here's a fantastic Google Chrome trick I just learned: you can Ctrl-Click to select multiple tabs at once. Then you can move them around or break them out into a new window as a group. Give it a try! Seriously great and simple trick that I never knew about (and probably should have, given that Ctrl-Click is so common for multi-select in plenty of other applications).

Don't hold out on me EE, what sort of simple tricks like this do you know about?

The Windows + Shift + Arrow keys one doesn't seem to do anything for me though... Is that for virtual screens on Windows 10?

Calendar, Gmail, Google Drive, SNote, and Etsy. Basically, all the practical apps that keep me organized and on top of things. I was using a sleep app to monitor my cycles, but I've decided to just stop sleeping.

Ha! I know the feeling! I've started using the "Bedtime" feature in iOS's built-in Clock app to remind me to go to bed though, otherwise... yeah... I have a definite tendency to want to stay up too late. I wish I could stop sleeping, but it's never worked out too well ;-)

An active Android-focused spyware family called SonicSpy has burst on the scene after being found lurking within 1,000 mobile apps, some found in Google Play.

Lookout Security researchers Michael Flossman found that SonicSpy can manipulate a victim's device via 73 remote instructions, including the ability to silently record audio, take photos with the camera, make outbound calls, send text messages to attacker specified numbers, and retrieve information such as call logs, contacts and information about Wi-Fi access points.

What technology will not last?:
Anything that Google puts out that is not related to Search, Advertising, Chrome browser, Apps for work, err, I mean gSuite or Android.   Most anything else is not worth trying to learn or grasp because just after you adopt it's gone.  Voice, Talk, Hangouts, Messenger - Pick one dammit!  I'm so confused.

I have worked with many smaller businesses from professional offices, universities, regional home builders, remodeling companies, insurance, small teaching studios, hospitals, and retail.   A couple of things that really stands out for those that are successful are focusing and going all in.    

For any of these that tried something by testing the waters with a toe dip, they end up failing and never had a chance of success.  For any that went "all in", there was success.  

I worked with 3 start ups that branched off from the same place to go on their own.  Two where gun shy, didn't put enough effort into marketing and ended up blowing whatever money they did put in. The third acted as if they were taking over the region and their marketing efforts reflected that.  This company went to $10MM in sales within a couple of years.    Probably closer to home for many, try taking Google's offer for free initial $100 in PPC ads and keep that budget for a few months.  Your going to fail.  Now try to dominate in your market and for many micro local businesses, that is going to mean spending $1,000 to $5,000 monthly on PPC.  Assuming they have a good system to keep people in the funnel moving towards a sale, they will succeed.  There is a point where you are just pissing into the wind throwing your  money out and no return.  

With many of these Google products, to the outsider, it feels like they do not go all in.  Inbox for instance.  It's a nice front end, but you can't use it 100% as is, you have to use the gmail interface.  Google+, I feel was not focused. They tried to do too many things at once with it.  A business was forced to have a g+ account, which took over for Google local and that alone was very confusing.  I did not like that aspect of it, but did enjoy the groups that were for development. It was a good way to learn about new items.  

My point with Google is, if they are going to put something out, go all in or go back to labs and say it is not a full fledged product yet and may never be.  When it is ready to come out of beta/labs, then go all in and dominate like they have the ability to.  Instead, it feels like they throw a bunch of stuff against the wall to see what sticks with no conscience to those that tried to adopt.

You need to assemble a crack AI team: Where do you even start?

lego_heads_photo_via_shutterstock.jpg
AI is finding its way into every day business and government. The idea of AI is not a new, but what is different is that today's hardware and software is bringing the various concepts underpinning AI to a mass market.

What’s new, too, is the driver: from bots and digital assistants to autonomous vehicles Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Nvidia and others in Silicon Valley are setting a drum beat to which the rest of are marching.

I think they are considering "Tech"  companies when business happens on the internet. It greatly reduces the concept of tech companies and technology.
Technology
1. The branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society, and the environment, drawing upon such subjects as industrial arts, engineering, applied science, and pure science.
2. the application of this knowledge for practical ends.
3.the terminology of an art, science, etc.; technical nomenclature.
4.a scientific or industrial process, invention, method, or the like.
5.the sum of the ways in which social groups provide themselves with the material objects of their civilization.

I would consider those "tech" companies more related to Innovation, VAS Companies

I agree, it's a fine line as to what you consider a tech company or not.

If VZW is not a tech company, then Apple shouldn't be.  They had about 66% of the sales from iPhone. Only 10% of sales were from Mac.  What about Visa?  That may not be consumer tech, but it is a the backbone for credit card transactions. Before there was a public world wide web, there was visanet.

Just when you thought Google Glass was dead and buried (thanks to public stigma), yesterday they announced an enterprise version:
http://www.x.company/glass/

Here's a blog post from the Glass project lead (Jay Kothari) that explains some of the things they're doing in the enterprise.

instruction manual compared to glass Using these for helping factory workers in assembly, inventory management, etc., on first glance looks like a no-brainer.  Giving a surgeon the ability to monitor vital signs of a patient while elbow deep in a heart transplant, amazing. Seems like enterprise is where the Glass project should have started in the first place.

A quick check here and no-one has "Windows" specifically listed as an OAuth authorized app.

Even if correct it's always worth checking your settings regularly :)

This article matches my experience with regards to GCP Firebase vs AWS Lambda. The TLDR is that AWS is better for testing but Firebase is way less complicated overall. For personal projects I'll be sticking with Firebase as much as I can.
