Love this Thames bridge concept!
Elegant, understated, yet immensely complicated to construct.

I think most of the other suggestions are pretty ridiculous and over the top...

What do you think?

Hi Money, I'd be very grateful if I could use your invite to get a OnePlus One. I missed out before, as they made a mistake with my request and it never happened :( so you'd be really doing me a favour.

Would that be OK with you?

Thanks in advance +Money Candan​ ! XD

This is pretty cool, you don't see into Google's data centre infrastructure very often. I'm surprised by the size of the servers, I expected them to be a lot smaller.

Signed up to the YouTube Music Key Beta programme but haven't heard a single thing from Google and no changes to my YouTube or Google Music experience, anyone else had this happen?

Bit miffed actually.

+Oliver Hamilton The Beta programme gives you 6 months free then £7.99. It'd be a nice benefit, on top of being a beta tester.

Found this while Christmas shopping, the book had about 150 pages... I would struggle to write more than a few characters about the game, kudos to whomever managed to fill an entire book haha!

Considering how much of a big deal Dong Nguyen made about not wanting to even publish the game after the initial viral buzz it got, he seems to have really embraced the whole profit making process now.

His name is slapped all over the place with trade marks and what not. I say good for him :)

+Jonathan Seyghal TO be honest, no idea! haha. Was just passing and snapped a picture. All I saw was a load of stickers, and a bunch of animal photos in part of the book, I think perhaps they were quizzes and games etc.

If I pass by again I'll have a better look :)
