Anyone know how to get adb authorised with Nexus Player running Android 5.1? It always says it's unauthorised and no auth dialog ever pops up for me... Running adb 5.1.0_r3 adb on Linux.

Well done guys! I'm not sure +EE quite gets the concept of URL shortening....

Dear +Google UK​,

Please can you stop including UKIP propaganda as "Recommended" for me on Google+ please? If I wanted racist, intolerant, ill-thought through nonsense shoved in my face I'm sure I could find it by myself thank you very much.

Dear Lazy+!

Anybody able to get adb to connect to the Nexus Player (UK version running latest 5.1)? I just get it listed as unauthorised and no authorisation dialog ever pops up.

I'm trying to sideload +Kodi  http://kodi.wiki/view/Google_Nexus_Player and although I can enable developer mode and USB debugging fine, but no matter what, it just doesn't seem to work. Trying the android-5.1.0_r3 version of the adb.

Not done much with adb before so might be missing something obvious. All the references I can find seem to be related to windows and the "Google USB driver" but that obviously wont apply with a linux client.

Thanks!

Got it working at last. Seems it could be related to my adb version... Use the one from the official SDK and it seems to have worked. Will debug further.

Yay, at last! Been waiting for app updates for a while!

Now if only I could find a good IMAP email client I liked!
 
Improvements to Google Calendar for Android

Over the next few days, you'll see lots of improvements to the new Google Calendar app based on your feedback with more coming soon. Here are some of the highlights:

● See more events at a glance with 7-day week view and pinch-to-zoom
● Add Google Drive files to events. Drive will even check if everyone can open them. 
● Control whether birthdays from Google+ are shown in settings. You'll also see the same changes on the web next week.
● A new option to show week numbers in settings.
● Import .ics files sent to you in Gmail and other apps

You can download the app on Google Play: www.google.com/calendar/android

PS: Yes, we're still working on Google Calendar for iPhone.  Stay tuned!

Dear lazy+. Now that my broadband connection has become >100Mbit (currently it's around 150Mbit on a good day). I'm looking to beef up my wifi.

Sadly my current router (DIR-615 with dd_wrt) doesn't support gigabit uplink and, if I'm honest, I'm not sure I ever got 801.11n connections to actually work reliably on the damn thing anyway. So I need something new.

It will be connected to dedicated ethernet port on my home box so really just needs to be an AP, no need for DHCP etc. as all that is handled on my box. I'd be happy to even do something interesting with running the AP software (hostapd) on the box too (tho' never tried this) if this gets good results. If so, should the wifi bit be on the PCIe bus or is it OK going via USB (2)? Or should I just go for a regular AP and save myself some hassle? FWIW, the antenna/AP is some distance away from the actual server box, but I can cable it quite happily.

Anybody care to make any recommendations?

If you want something that can do just about anything and everything you can think of, have a look at mikrotik routers. Not open source though, but its configuration options are really endless

It's a very sad day today. We lost a very nice friend yesterday, a former colleague, an amazing contributor and an ardent advocate of free s

Fantastic selection of cask and keg beverages which rotate often enough that you could never get bored! The seating is somewhat limited but the split mezzanine makes the best possible use of the space! Only thing that prevents me from giving it a full 5 stars is the lack of a "pint" option (drinks are served as schooner - ~2/3 pint) and the fact that some of the bar tables are too high for the bar stools (although they do work well for stand so swings and roundabouts) On the plus side, they have hooks everywhere for hanging jackets the lack of which in pubs is a pet peeve of mine, so kudos on that one :)

This is a nice place if you want the diner experience. It seems to fit half-way between a gourmet burger restaurant and a fast food outlet. The service and portions are very much inline with a fast food place, but the actual quality and variety of the options far surpass it. As a veggie, I rarely have the inclination to go to other burger places which shall remain McNameless, but in this place practically all the menu options have a vegetarian equivalent which is really great to see. The "Jamaican Me Crazy" shake is a good shout!

I was fortunate enough to be invited to an "Evening of Wonder" at Camera Obscura and had an amazing time. The venue has been on my "to visit" list for some time after hearing great things about it from my niece (who insisted on going twice in one day on her last visit!), and I'm happy to say it didn't disappoint. Set on five floors, each has it's own unique feel. From holograms that react to the direction you view them (remember the rulers you used to have in school which worked the same way!) to interactive games you play with a friend, each exhibit will instill some sense of wonder! A great day out for all the family.

What an amazing company! The people who work there are lovely, although as I'm one of them, I'm certainly a little biased!

This venue has seen a number of different faces over the years, but I think it's current incarnation is my favourite. It has a very rustic feel, and while the theme of the place might be a little overbearing at times, it's actually been very well decorated and there are many little details that are fun to spot. The food was very good and with well presented kebabs delivered on hanging skewers. The menu has a lot of choice with great fish options and plenty to keep the veggies like myself happy too! The selection of beers was impressive and our party seemed to try a good number of them over the course of the night! Will definitely go back!

This is a nice bar but I can't help but feel a round here is more expensive than other bars in the area. They somewhat make up for that by sometimes offering free snacks (at least on a Friday for the post-work, end-of-week crowd) although I'm not 100% sure if they still do this as I didn't spot it when I was last in a week or so back. It's recently had a bit of a refit although not all that much has changed if I'm honest. And despite it's name, this is the least convincingly French themed pub I've ever been in! - essentially a few posters and that's about it!!

Nice bar to grab a burger. Along with Holyrood 9a, this place probably ties for the best burger in Edinburgh (if a recent poll among my friends is anything to go by!). As a veggie I'm partial to the halloumi burger, although always request it with guacamole rather than the tapenade as I simply can't get enough avocado!
