Google Timer

Just discovered this:
Enter timer in the Google search or awesome bar of your favorite browser, and Google will present you a nice little timer app/widget.

Just then enter whatever time you want/need and start.

You can also go fullscreen, e.g. if you need to project this during presentations or so.

Cool thing is, wherever you have google, you have this timer.

There are some nice short cuts, try them:
timer 10 minutes
timer 16:30
timer 5:30 pm

Where are the Mesh Networks?

With all the (justified) uproar about the NSA and GHCQ, which should actually be an uproar against the Telcos and ISPs (and backbone providers playing along) one wonders, why there is no rush to mesh networks, giving us a bit more independence of centralized networking providers.
