I'm a little surprised at how DULL the non-hdr shot looks. I expect the sky to be washed out, but the colors are rather desaturated.

The Note 4, the new Moto X, and HDR

This kind of got lost in the Lollipop/Nexus shuffle, but in my Note 4 review earlier this week, I talked about the phone's HDR performance and how it compares to that of the 2014 Moto X. Specifically, I said:

In an HDR-to-HDR comparison, I've found the Note 4's shots tend to be less clear, detailed and true-to-life in coloring than those I captured with the 2014 Moto X.

I figured that might raise a few eyebrows, so I thought I'd point out a quick illustration.

Here are two images taken with the Note 4 -- without HDR, on top, and with HDR, on bottom.

You can see the same landscape as captured by the 2014 Moto X with HDR here: http://goo.gl/BxCiiS

When you look closely, it's a pretty striking difference.

About friggin' time.

New! Trendlines, copy & paste charts in Google Sheets

Sometimes it’s helpful to recognize and track patterns of data in your spreadsheets, so that’s why today we’re launching trendlines to scatter plot, bar, column, and line graphs in Google Sheets (http://goo.gl/74n8sW). 

Trendlines are commonly used to analyze financial and scientific data, but they can even be useful in the classroom or for personal needs like budgeting. 

There are a bunch of ways to customize trendlines in Sheets, like:
-Choose between exponential or linear trendlines
-Add a variety of labeling options
-Customize your trendline 

Oh and one more smaller but handy update--you can now copy and paste charts from one sheet or spreadsheet to another. ___About friggin' time.

A good way to think of Xbox One games rights:

All Xbox One games are digital downloads. You know how gamers argued whether next-gen consoles would even have a disc drive or would go download-only? Well, think of it as if the Xbox One went download-only. You can pick up a cache of the bits on a disc at the store if you don't want to wait to download a 15GB game, but what you bought is still just a digital download version. Just as if you bought The Last of Us via digital download on the PS Store instead of getting the disc from Gamestop.

It seems clear that this is essentially Microsoft's intent. It even spelled it out that way in its post on the subject. "Discs will continue to be a great way to install your games quickly."

The disc isn't a separate form of the game. It's the same as the digital download. It's all digital download, conceptually.... more »

It seems clear that this is essentially Microsoft's intent. It even spelled it out that way in its post on the subject. "Discs will continue to be a great way to install your games quickly."

The disc isn't a separate form of the game. It's the same as the digital download. It's all digital download, conceptually. In fact, once you install a disc that first time, you really do have a digital version - you can snap the disc in half and just re-download the game whenever. The disc is just a download-speeding cache—you can "download" the data from a plastic disc if your internet isn't fast enough or whatever. The Xbox One is well-positioned for a future version of the console, a few years hence, that has no optical drive at all.

This really puts the rights into focus. The rights of Xbox One games are very much like the existing rights for digital download games on Steam, Xbox Games on Demand, PS Store, Origin, etc. (In fact, they're pretty generous with the 10-person family play thing).

(Note that I said this was "a good way to think of" the games rights, not that it made the game rights good.)
