Bad news England will have a big dent in their attack.
 
James Anderson has been ruled out of remainder of the current Investec #Ashes Test with a side strain.
Anderson will be unavailable for the 4th Test beginning on Thursday 6 August at Trent Bridge and his availability for the final Test in the series will be determined in due course.

Great pics he posts, but his tagging and description needs a little work? Is it kimmeridge or sandbanks? Dorset or Anglia?

Why does Europe hate Google? The French data protection regulator, the CNIL, seem to think that they own the internet outside of France.

They've told Google that the ridiculous right to be forgotten law should be rolled out world wide and if Google don't do it they will face the consequences of not doing so which will probably be a fine.

The +European Commission​ and Europe in general seems to have a real big issue with American tech companies because nobody on France, Germany or Spain have bothered to come up with a search engine or mobile OS to compete.

The CNIL have responded with this:

We have taken note of Google's arguments which are mostly of a political nature. The CNIL, on the other hand, has relied on a strictly legal reasoning

How on earth can the French claim that they have a legal right to tell Google what to do in another country?

Things will get so bad that mark my words that the European Union will roll out their own search engine just as the Chinese have and have complete control over the internet.

Google do point out that 97% of internet users in France use Google.fr and as much as the European Commission hates it they do so by choice. They could use another search engine if they wanted but they don't..

The Beeb’s campaign to retain the licence fee is a classic case of corporate short-termism

+jim tom​ Why is it disgusting? The BBC funded Top Gear via threats of prosecution? The whole of the BBC is funded by fear of court, fine and a criminal record.

Amazon are paying what they think the show is worth. Amazon is a commercial entity that pays what they want.

Jeremy Clarkson sums up the BBC I feel like I've climbed out of a bi-plane and into a spaceship. I expect the BBC Licence fee won't seem such good value for lots of people and Amazon Prime will.

Of course the BBC Licence fee is exceptional value for money if you like EastEnders, Homes Under the Hammer and Flog it.

Remember you won't have to pay Amazon if you don't want to. They won't drag you through the courts.


Jeremy Clarkson says the deal with the streaming service Prime feels "like I've climbed out of a bi-plane and into a spaceship".

Lucky so and so My brother is well on his way to New York for a week. Flying +Virgin Atlantic​​ and staying in Times Square. Him and a friend are there to celebrate his birthday which is tomorrow. Not a big one but he's always wanted to go.

To make me even more jealous he will be sitting down to watch the +New York Yankees​​ host the +Boston Red Sox​​ on August the 4th which will be amazing I'm sure what with a good weather forecast to boot.

I'll be following him and everyone else via +Flightradar24​​ - http://goo.gl/8lRgBn

Talk of non-smoking area leads to attack on cycling I don't get some of my fellow Bournemouth residents. Talk of a non-smoking area on the beach is attacked and instead the focus should be on stopping people cycling along the promenade.

Bournemouth has a real anti-cycling mentality. Those who drive and pump endless amounts of fumes that kill 300k odd people a year have a real issue with those that don't.

+Bournemouth Borough Council​ really has Its work cut out making the area both family friendly, safer and easier for bikes to get about. I've got a bike seat for my 10 month old son but there is absolutely no chance I'm using it on the roads.

It should actually be talk of a designated smoking area and not a non-smoking one.
A NON-smoking area on Bournemouth beach has been proposed at a town council meeting.

I have opinions and views just like everyone else. Just like yours they're mine.
Introduction
Live in Bournemouth with my amazing wife and wonderful son. I work in the mobile phone industry and helps feed my passion for all things tech. 

interested in everything from technology, current affairs, food and  pretty much everything in between. That means my posts will contain all the above and some random ramblings about something that has made me go tut.  

I also post about Android with a UK prospective when I get the chance. My Google+ page is called Android UK News etc. Take a look and hopefully you'll find something of interest. I use Google+ exclusively and post from my Nexus 9 or Nexus 6 on the go.  
 
If you put me in a circle say hi and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
