Thanks! I have a lot of lazy photospheres too haha, I just got a Google Cardboard setup so I was using my Nexus 5 to show them to family via virtual reality, since they're not always willing to go hiking or climb sand dunes :P

Inside St. Peter's Basilica, Rome. It's one of the full 360-degree photospheres I got to take.

Peter "Brokep" Sunde was convicted in Sweden's notorious Pirate Bay trial, and now faces prison time and a multimillion-euro fine. As his imprisonment looms, he describes, in detail, the bizarre circumstances of his conviction, which started with an illegal raid ordered by the US trade representative, continued with an investigation led by a prosecutor who'd already accepted a job with Warner Brothers as a copyright enforcer and was just working ...

I actually managed to order one when they first went up for sale, within the 20 minutes before they sold out. T-Mobile has a prepaid plan with unlimited text and data and 5GB of 4G (HSPA+) before throttling and 100 minutes of talk for only $30/month, so I got a SIM card activation kit and set that up, and I love it. Not to mention Ann Arbor is one of 163 cities that has T-Mo's 42mbps DC-HSPA+ infrastructure, so it's about as fast as LTE anyways. My biggest grip was the lack of an SD card slot, but 16GB is still enough to pack plenty of content for long trips and I can just stream my music with Google Music. Battery life has been pretty standard for me, I have everything enabled and running and I still have 50% right now after unplugging this morning. The Maxx HD is a great choice though, I'm sure not having to even think about battery is nice.

A $99 Android-based system where every game has a free component... neat.
Cracking open the last closed platform: the TV. A beautiful, affordable console -- built on Android, by the creator of Jambox.

Securing your bill against debate by making it even more obscure, huh? Classy. I trust people will be sure to question the garbage this guy puts out after SOPA and will realize it's more of the same harmful stuff instead of honestly buying into the idea that patent/copyright needs to be further "advanced."
It's not just ACTA that is being snuck back into law through undemocratic means. Lamar Smith, the powerful committee chairman and corporatist archvillain who tried to ram through SOPA last year is now bent on reviving his slain monster and unleash it upon the earth. The new bill, the Intellectual Property Attache Act, will create a class of political officers who will see to it that all US trade negotiations and discussions advance SOPA-like pro...

The UN steps in to solve the patent war and save innovation
 The patent war in the mobile industry is so fierce that it´s a serious road block to innovation. Furthermore the UN agency ICU (International Telecommunication Union) says the standards essential patents are too important to be left to industry and courts. 

"We are seeing an unwelcome trend in today's marketplace to use standards-essential patents to block markets," said the ITU secretary general Dr Hamadoun Torre.

"There needs to be an urgent review of this situation: patents are meant to encourage innovation, not stifle it." the talks are scheduled to take place at the ITU's headquarters in Geneva on 10 October.
