Google Photos now has a Favorites feature

  Google Photos now has a Favorites feature I know a lot of people love Google Photos, but sometimes you realize that the service is missing some elementary stuff. For example, there hasn’t been a Favorites feature until now. Google has announced that, over the next week, it’s rolling out that functionality. You’ll be able to tap a star at the upper right of any photo in your library, and it’ll automatically show up in Favorites. A Favorites album is created as soon as you begin starring images. And that’s pretty much it! Nothing fancy. If you don’t see the option to star a photo, you don’t have Favorites just yet.

TORONTO - A world champion runner from the Six Nations of the Grand River is the star of today's Google Doodle.

Anyone searching on the popular site will be met with a graphic of Tom Longboat running in one of the Google logo's "Os" alongside a maple leaf in the second "O."

Longboat was born June 4, 1887, and went on to forge a spectacular long-distance career that made him one of the world's most famous athletes in the early 20th century.

Historica Canada notes he won the Boston Marathon in record time in 1907, smashing the record by more than five minutes. In 1909, he won the world professional marathon championships at Madison Square Garden, pulling ahead of British champion Alfie Shrubb in the final mile of the race.

Google Lens updated with smart text selection and real-time lookup

  Google Lens updated with smart text selection and real-time lookup The new features Google showed off at I/O 2018 will soon land on your Android devices if they haven't yet. According to 9to5google, smart text selection, style match and real-time results have started rolling out to people's Lens cameras. The new features come with a redesign that rearranges Lens' elements a bit, along with a brand new menu marked "Tap on objects and text," showing you what objects the camera can identify. Among all the features we tested during I/O, we found smart text selection the most intriguing and useful: it gives you a way to quickly look up items in documents around you.

And in 1912, he set a new 15-mile world record of one hour, 18 minutes, and 10 seconds — seven minutes better than his fastest amateur time.

A biography on the Veterans Affairs Canada website notes Longboat set aside his athletic career in February 1916 to enlist, serving as a dispatch runner in France in the First World War. He was wounded twice during his time of service, but survived the war and returned to Canada in 1919.

According to the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame, Longboat lived out the rest of his life in relative obscurity, working for the City of Toronto before returning to the Six Nations Reserve near Brantford, Ont.

He died in 1949 at the age of 62.

Whether that version is a "what if" prototype or something akin to what Apple may ship in 2 years is anyone's guess. But you don't need to wait until 2020: Apple's plans for virtual magic are playing out in real-time, right now, on the iPads and iPhones that your currently own.
