Park for free at a supermarket or Castlepoint. Councils in Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch would like to encourage you to use the high street by..........putting up charges and ditching free parking at Christmas.

Amazon won't kill the high Street but people playing at being politicians will. 
PLANS to cut free Christmas parking in Christchurch while also increasing other car park charges have been described as "troubling" and…

+Adrian Chapmanlaw Not really. Whatever colour the council is it's run by people who are full of shit and self importance.

Panthers vs Broncos. I'm going with the Panthers and I'll do me best to stay up and watch it.

You'll be able to talk to your watch. You won't look at all odd!
 
Android Wear Android 6.0 rolling out Over the next few weeks your watch will be getting Android 6.0 and Messenger will then have its own micro app. Along with that Android Wear will be getting:

Navigate your watch with new gestures.Scrolling up and down your card stream is as simple as flicking your wrist. Starting today you can also expand a card, bring up your apps, or return home to your watch face with a push, lift or shake. You'll be able to stay connected to what’s important, while keeping your phone (or other hand) in your pocket. 

Send more messages with just your voice.With Android Wear, you’ve always been able to get answers to spoken questions. Now you can also use your voice to send messages from apps like Google Hangouts,Nextplus, Telegram, Viber, WeChat, andWhatsApp. Running late for lunch? Just say “OK Google, Send a WhatsApp message to Nathan: I’ll be right there.” 

Make calls and listen to messages with speaker support. Screening calls from your wrist is a nice convenience that comes with Android Wear. Thanks to speaker support, you can now make and take calls over Bluetooth. And you can listen to audio/video messages with apps like Glide. All you need is a watch with a speaker, which today includes the Huawei Watch and the ASUS ZenWatch 2 (49mm).

Nothing as of yet on my Urbane. You?

Lend us a fiver......,
 
The parasitic, evil company Just a few of the ways the British press have described Google. This evening ITV News has quoted their 'global sales figures' which I can only guess is to fuel the fire over Google and their tax affairs. Something everyone who reads The Guardian seems to be an expert on.

You too can get all jealous and green with envy by reading their results below. Apple certainly will be.

Which one did we have the opportunity to vote for?

#EU 
The PM's hopes of holding Britain's EU referendum this summer are thrown into doubt as Donald Tusk leaves crucial talks early.

Taking your time Google......
 
Android Pay It's a service that has been open to the US for fair old while. Australia is next on the list for roll out but the UK shouldn't be that far behind now that you can add cards.

If you've already got cards associated with your Google account they'll show up but until your card issuer adds Android Pay and Google does the honours you'll not get any use just get.

There are some real shits out there.

Three drivers swerved around a woman who had tripped and fallen on to the road and was knocked unconscious before she was run over and killed by a fourth vehicle.

Louise Wolstenholme, 52, stumbled backwards while crossing Bow Street in Bolton on January 31 and hit her head. Instead of stopping to help, a single decker bus and two cars slowed down before deliberately steering around her and driving away. She was then run over by a Ford Focus, which sped off. The driver pulled up in a nearby street and abandoned the car

Sadly the times we live in. Did you ever stop to think how odd it is that someone who stops also makes the news? Maybe it is because we are so surprised that anyone would that it deserves comment too? Still I hope they can identify all the drivers involved and name them.

The Guardian is in all but name the print version of BBC News. It's also a staunch supporter of the funding method that the BBC is so keen to keep.

The obvious answer is everyone is made to pay for The Guardian or you'll end up in court just as you are the BBC. You wouldn't want to see dear Owen Jones have to work for a living would you?
As much as any newspaper in the world, Britain’s Guardian has been single-minded and aggressive in its belief that conversion to digital was its future.

Introduction
Hello and thanks for visiting my page. You've probably come across me by sheer accident but if you want to stay with me I'd love to hear from you. 

About me

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. 

What do I post about?

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 have started a community. It's called The United Kingdom. You don't need to be in the UK to join in.

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're new to Google+ and aren't sure what the fuss is about fire any questions you may have over and between myself and others we can get your sorted. When you are up and running do say hello.

To get some tips about how to use Google+ visit this very helpful community.
