    Google only blocks ads that they think are bad. I think it's safe to assume Google doesn't see Google AdWords as bad.

    Do you want a Gmail (client) alternative? Or an alternative email service?

    Impressive technology. But it's fake photography. Where does it stop? Replace regular clothes with designer clothes? Replace clouds with sunny weather? Replace the baseball field with a Florida beach?

    I like the technology but I don't like the way it's being used.

    Why don't they copy Illustrator's way of aligning? Works perfect.

    Ah clear. If cheering up = no design relevance is needed on Designer News. Good to know.

    Personally I go to reddit or 9gag for cheering up pics or videos.

    What has this to do with design? Please leave that fanboyism (positive of negative) at Youtube.

    The difference between art and design. Design needs to solve questions. Art creates questions.

    Am I the only one who thinks it's really dangerous to let a bot suggest suitable answers for you? In the case of a cute puppy it doesn't really matter. But what is the perspective of the bot/ai/algoritm on politics?

    It's $649 excluding tax (5~10%, percentage depends on state). In New York you'll pay an extra $57.60. Still cheaper than the € prices though.
