"A “cache” is a temporary place where developers store data of a particular website or App.

When you will access that specific website or app again the data from the cache files are used to load the pages instead of downloading it again – because going to the network is slow and expensive. The main purpose of caches is to improve things like browsing experience by boosting the page loading speed.

However, along with all the speed advantage they also have some disadvantages that are enough to get rid of them.

These files are stored in your phone’s memory which means they are definitely taking some space. Furthermore, if they are not deleted from time to time they can also lead to slowing down your phone’s speed or even stop the web pages and apps from working properly.

There are many advantages of clearing cache files that easily outweigh the advantages of keeping them..."

From Wikipedia:

The purpose of World Turtle Day, May 23, sponsored yearly since 2000 by American Tortoise Rescue, is to bring attention to, and increase knowledge of and respect for, turtles and tortoises, and encourage human action to help them survive and thrive.

Turtle Day is celebrated worldwide in a variety of ways, from dressing up as turtles or wearing green summer dresses, to saving turtles caught on highways, to research activities. Turtle Day lesson plans and craft projects encourage teaching about turtles in classrooms.

How Cats Really See the World [COMICS]

To your cat, your laptop keyboard isn't for typing, it's a VIP's red carpet, an invitation to preen. The top of your bookcase – it's a summit to be scaled. Artists Vondell Swain and Andrew Bridgman created a funny series of illustrations as part of a College Humor comic called 'How Cats See the World.' ...

"The oceans cover over seventy percent of the Earth’s surface, yet when it comes to travelling most of us stick to dry land.

It’s a shame, as there are some amazing experiences to be had underwater – from swimming with whale sharks to diving around World War II wrecks.

Thanks to advances in camera technology, more and more photographers are able to capture these mesmerising watery worlds, and once-elusive sights are now just a click away on YouTube or Vimeo.

Here are ten of our favourite underwater videos..."

Tweets are searchable in Google mobile app

"Whether you’re interested in the latest from Taylor Swift, news about the #MadMenFinale, or updates on the NBA playoffs, you’ll have access to it directly from Google.

Let’s use NASA as an example—just ask the Google app about “NASA Twitter,” and in the search results, you’ll see Tweets from @NASA:"

Everyone has loads of old photographs in albums and removing the pics & scanning them is a chore.

I decided to test how taking mobile photos with my Nexus 5 works: Took shots from an album.

Some shots are better than others: I'm ill with bronchitis (and bored) so didn't have the energy to set up lights etc properly, just snapped away and after the Auto backup had uploaded the photos from my phone to Google+ I then copied the pics to a new album and cropped the images on Google+.

Editing done with my Chromebook while in bed. :-)
Added HDR to some pics and vintage filters to others.  Google+ created one #AutoAwesome pic of my youngest son jumping.

Of course one can edit on the mobile too but I prefer a laptop.

That was fun, now I need a nap.

"Dogs we get, mostly because they are so easy to get. They have expressive faces and body language that we can read pretty accurately, according to researchers who study animal behavior.

Cats, on the other hand, are known for their emotional opaqueness and standoffishness; even the cat-ladiest of cat ladies might think that their pets don’t seem altogether interested in communicating with them, as long as the food arrives on time. 

But that’s probably not entirely accurate, say the researchers who study cat-human communication — and, yes, this is a real field of scientific study, albeit a small one. Deciphering meaning in the behaviors of pets — meaning that went much beyond feed me now, anyway — was once dismissed as mere anthropomorphism, but that’s no longer the consensus among this community of researchers.

Rather, there’s a growing belief that cats are as expressive as dogs, argues Sharon Crowell-Davis, a professor of veterinary behavior at the University of Georgia, who recently gave a presentation on the subject at a conference for cat behaviorists in Atlanta.

It’s just that we misunderstand or don’t see what they’re trying to communicate..."

Puoli seitsemän -ohjelman toimittaja Tero Karhu matkustaa Luontoviikon aikana Lapista kohti etelää ja tapaa reittinsä varrella kiinnostavia ihmisiä, joita nähdään myös Ps:n Luontoviikon lähetyksissä. Helatorstain ja perjantain välisen yön vankkumaton city-ihminen Tero viettää kuitenkin ypöyksin metsässä - elämänsä ensimmäistä kertaa.

Miten kaupunkilaispojalta onnistuu yösijan rakentaminen? Onko hän ymmärtänyt pakata reppuunsa oikeat tavarat? Entä tuleeko uni silmään metsän siimeksessä?

Katso itse, kuinka Teron käy - suora lähetys alkaa tällä sivulla helatorstaina 14.5. kello 18.30.

Good article about the Collections - from a photographer's point of view

"Ways in which Google+ Collections will enhance the creator and user experience:

- Collections will be great for writers, researchers and curators

- Users can fine tune their incoming stream to better fit their interests

- Photographers can use collections to create themes and styles, portfolios and showcases

- Collections can be a static showcase or a continuously evolving theme

- Business can use collections to target specific user interests

- Collections can be used to document specific events

Collections can be used to share grouped content under a specific url on other Social Media accounts, and from webpages (this will be really useful for me when writing about a specific technique like backlighting and star-bursts)

Collections may prevent the need for having multiple profiles and pages for sharing different topics to different audiences..."

Google Plus Collections and how to use them - Heather Buckley Photography

Today Google has launched Google+ Collections (take a look at my first my collections).  Here I will share my thoughts and experiences and suggest how you can use collections to your advantage. I can think of many ways in which the feature will benefit me as a photographer and marketer.

What is the difference between Collections and Communities

Two different animals.
Communities are for anyone to discuss, share stuff and get together.

Collections are more condensed:
They are unique and yours.

You can show what your interests are.
You don't have to limit posting about the stuff you love, thinking you are inundating your followers, you just put the topics in collections and anyone can follow those - whether they follow you or not.

I can skip all the American football stuff around Super Bowl.
I can skip all the politics.

Now I can share Finnish language posts without getting complaints.
:D  I have a Finnish collection, not on auto-follow.

One can use a private collection for bookmarking, a feature that has been requested very much.

One can browse posts around a certain topic from the pros and learn.

Makes it easier for me to find my own posts.
- I wish we get Collections added to search later and also get to search within a Collection.

Google+ is interest based and this just goes to further enhance our experience.
- I can be more in control of what I see in my Home stream.

Just a beginning, I think: A tip of the iceberg.

What are your thoughts?
