Today I thought I would use Microsoft's Visual Studio Code for a thought experiment with Node, I'm surprisingly impressed, fairly responsive, simple layout and easy to use. Then I discover out its built upon Chromium.

Fair play Microsoft.
Under the hood, it's a fancy Web app, using Google's browser.

Its about time the EU decided on fair roaming charges, I've found it frankly ridiculous how we get charged such high amounts to use data when in a foreign country.
The European Union reached an agreement today that will end roaming charges for people travelling within its 28 member countries as of June 2017. The new agreement, brought into effect after months...

Doesn't this just mean phone contracts/plans will probably go up more? Therefore useless and more expensive for those who don't travel? Depending on what contracts/plans providers will offer nearer the time of course.

I'm glad to see a few more features making their way from Gmail to Inbox
After rolling out "Undo Send" to desktop Gmail users earlier this week, Google has now added the feature to its Inbox app. The feature launched in May, and is now available for Inbox on Android, iOS and the web. Undo Send allows you to unsend an e-mail up to ten seconds after you've hit the send button, with an "Undo" button appearing next to the delivery notification. Inbox...

I'm unsure how reliable these numbers are, but I'd like to mention that in the light of all this controversy of how much Apple and Spotify are paying artists per stream.

Google Play Music pays artists nearly 10 times as much per stream.

I'm working on a new Android theming library named Prism. There's still a little bit of work to do but I'm aiming to release it in mid-July. The GIF shows it in action being driven by a ViewPager - the only thing not being coloured by Prism is the text within each page of the ViewPager. It integrates fully with the new design support library and supports custom Views as well.

I'll be giving a sneak peek of Prism at the Londroid meetup this coming Tuesday http://www.meetup.com/android/events/223098440

Velodrome. onActivityResult handlers for Android. View on GitHub Download .zip Download .tar.gz. One of the more painful pieces of the Android lifecycle occurs inside onActivityResult . The more DialogFragment and startActivityForResult calls you have, the more it inevitably descends into a mess ...

The 'Ballmer Peak' is a real thing, though Club Mate can be an effective mitigator, I've found Netflix to be the most ideal solution

Great burgers, nice selection of beers, but foremost the bar staff. I came here after being alone in London for a month and made friends with the guys here almost instantly, everybody is lovely and the service is awesome.

Really surprised at reading these last reviews as my experience was delightful, the waitress was extremely quick despite how busy it was, the food served quickly and particularly tasty, my only caveat is that the portion sizes could be a bit bigger, this is London however!

Cool, nice interior, one of many burrito bars popping up, a decent sized burrito and friendly staff, though no jalapeños :(

I've only been once or twice, but I would absolutely recommend this place for the froyo aficionados, with a great range of toppings with curious combinations! A great place for a healthy breakfast or snack. Can be found just off Oxford Street on Whitworth Street West.
