Is the Google Home / Google Mini any different?
I'd never use it on the phone. Pure voice is just easier.

Germany facing another election, huge blow to Merkel’s agenda. With the 4 Visegrád countries and Austria talking about joining them, UK leaving, Italy likely to swing anti Europe next year in their elections there is interesting times ahead for the EU.

The opposition leader to Merkel is her twin brother. I guess Germany will be grand.

A lot of those Eastern European countries do seem to be problematic all right. It seems like they were added to EU a bit before they were ready.

They are for people who are enthusiastic for the end of privacy (end of privacy for plebs of course ,Zuckerberg and his ilk guard their own tightly)
Reading the forums of enthusiasts of this stuff people who are into it seem pretty simple

4 or 5 episodes would have been perfect. Probably worth a watch if you're bored or hungover some day
Yeah watched a couple of them and had the same thoughts that while enjoyable it would be hard to keep the same thing interesting over a full season.

They all seem to have a bit of a warped justification system for doing what they do though. Would be refreshing to see one of them admit they're a mercenary or adrenaline junkie instead of fooling themselves that they're not scum and providing a positive service.

Vet copped immediately all her muscles were gone in back legs. rubbed her and chatted away . Then explained she was going to sedate her would take ten mins . I was very upset at this point , the ten mins seemed like ages , she deffo fought it. She said she would leave me alone to have time with her to say goodbye. I couldnt do anymore told her to do it .

Then vet shaved freckles leg and put a line thing in for the inevitable needle and told me it was more or less immediate, I watched her stomach rise up and down for maybe one min and that was it. we wrapped her up snugly and she took her away in the quilt she was lying in to be be cremated .

3.10 pm Mia text me from school "what did vet say" as I had told her I needed vet to call that morning
I had to race home barely made it as was doing a sale, just saw her geting off the bus and she got into car loudly laughing that the bus driver was singing Ed sheeran and he was so funny and came bounding in door about her having to make a speech in front of school. She was in flying form. Then said

"what did vet say mammy" I wasnt even looking at her. Lump in my throat and I couldnt say it. " where is freckles "she said . at this point I just had tears streaming down my face, so my mother said " Mia, Freckles was very very sick today , the vet had to put her to sleep "

omg it was awful I have never heard Mia cry so hard or as long as she did , she sat on my lap and cried and cried into me. broke my heart. Had a brief chat I had to go back to work for maybe an hour and half

brought her home a few goodies and she was very down in herself . I went to bed for over an hour at 6 pm as I was just drained and at 7.30 Mia climbed in and we just chatted about freckles , she asked me how it was done and I told her . I also asked would she have liked to be there , she said no Mammy I wouldnt like to see that , so I am so happy I made the right choice. I said Freckles had a great life nearly 16! but unlike us she cant talk and was in terrible pain and it was so unfair to have her that way . she not too bad now , maybe every 30 mins just walks up and puts her arms around me for a long hug.

My co worker picked up this jar for me today, such lovely thought , and I got pics printed
and told mia she would always have it. she started writing a few bits and bobs in it there 30 mins ago .
so thats it , horrible day but such is life . RIP Freckles

Horrible thing to go through but I am glad you switched from telling Mia the dog died to telling her she had to be euthanized. At least you can speak with Mia about it without having to watch what you are saying for fear of her hearing you slip up. She sounds like a well put together child and a credit to you. I'm sure she will come out the other side stronger in the end. RIP Freckles.

That's actually insane on many levels.
The full tweet with the Don King reference is even funnier.

Don't have an overly keen eye for what quantifies a fine acting performance but Gyllenhaal's performance in Nightcrawler was immense. Have watched it several times now.

You likely will be in the near future - the digital industry is primed for a global shift in user search. Literally used it for the first time last week for Google Maps and was impressed.
