Happy birthday, +Mike Henrey​!

Well, that's it. I was hoping to hear that Project Ara phones would be available soon in the Project Ara Module Developers' Conference yesterday.  Looks like folks in Puerto Rico might be able to get one "later this year," but here in the UK?  Who knows.

Since my trusty Nexus 4 bit the dust (or, more accurately, a puddle) last summer, I've been suffering with this Xperia T, which has the worst memory management I've ever seen in a phone. I was hoping to hold out for a Project Ara phone, but with yesterday's announcement, I've given up on that one.

An excellent article about connected devices and what they should (and shouldn't) be.

To who anyone who rides a #bicycle, read this warning!

I was riding in a cycle lane yesterday, when a car travelling just ahead of me made a sudden turn through the cycle lane. I didn't have time to react. I was catapulted through the air, landing on my head and back.

The real story here is my helmet. You can see that it was completely demolished. If I hadn't been wearing it, it is easy to see that my head would have suffered significant trauma. As it is, I suffered no head injury whatsoever. I am convinced that my +Catlike Helmets Whisper at least saved me from serious head trauma and it probably saved my life.

Therefore, I implore you: wear your helmet when you cycle. Whatever it is that might hold you back from wearing your helmet is not worth your life or your quality of life.

So, it seems I've worn out my tyres after about a year's daily use. I suspect they have been underinflated. That, combined with the occasional heavy load on the rack and some very bumpy roads, has surely caused this.

Any suggestions on what type of tyres I should look for? My existing ones are Bontrager H2, 700x35c.
