+The Verge  podcatcher roundup. They gave the winner to Pocketcasts by  Shifty Jelly But it still doesn't supplant my current one, BeyondPod.

Pocket Casts looks all very nice but needs to do a few basic things like stop playing when you yank your headphones out or disconnect bluetooth.

My other main bugbear is that the playlist management could use some work too. There's no way to set up a preferred order for listening to your podcasts other than latest first.

e.g.

Latest from feed A
Oldest from feed B
Latest 2 from feed C
All podcasts in "News"

Beyondpod has this nailed.
Podcasts are more popular than ever thanks to cultural sensations like Serial, but how are you supposed to listen to them? Google doesn’t even make its own podcast app for Android anymore...

Google continue their run of awful design decisions by turning on Chrome's new and horrible bookmark manager in the latest update.

Disable it by going to chrome://flags/#enhanced-bookmarks-experiment and choosing Disabled from the dropdown

Really Google? I'd just switched back to #chrome, if they remove the disable switch to this I'll be back to #firefox  for sure.

Possibly my only election related post... Good summary of the main parties policies on cycling. Rather predictably, the Greens have the most far reaching vision. Back in the real world the Lib Dems promise the best of the credible parties, at least saying they'll implement the findings from http://allpartycycling.org/inquiry/

I'll take an 8/10 over a 10/10 with being forced to speak russian ;)

#election2015  
With a couple of honourable exceptions, the main parties show depressingly little vision or ambition in their election programmes.

But nobody ever delivers upon a manifesto, all we're really doing is putting our faith in people, not policy or promises.

Aragorn: Gentlemen, we do not stop 'til nightfall. 
Pippin: What about breakfast? 
Aragorn: You've already had it. 
Pippin: We've had one, yes. What about second breakfast? 
Merry: I don't think he knows about second breakfast, Pip.

So, second breakfast is actually a thing! I hear-by claim Bavarian nationality :)

Second breakfast is before elevenses...

Pippin: What about elevenses? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper? He knows about them, doesn't he?

Tough job, writers on board with not-too-stinky track records. Director is the big thing.

In my fantasy world, Tarantino would direct this :)
Mulan, the story of a girl who becomes a great warrior after disguising herself as a boy, is the next Disney movie on the list to be made into a live action film.

Absolutely superb place. Bodega Santa Barbara made our day when we visited Teguise Sunday market. Delicious food, friendly service & the guitar player they had was great. Could have stayed there all afternoon, but my bus came!
