Getting frequent force closes with the latest version. Sometimes restarts quickly, sometimes hangs the device for several seconds. Will try to get a log.

Are mobile apps getting excessively bloated?

I just updated a bunch of apps on my S6, and noted that Chrome Dev is now 71.xx MB. Not to specifically pick on Google or Chrome, but come on guys. Not that many years ago, my HTC Aria on Eclair (with no way to store apps on the SD Card, remember) had roughly 150 MB TOTAL of usable storage for all non system apps.

Chrome isn't THAT much better than it was then...

+Syko Pompos​, this could have been interesting on a plastic road... 
M6 Stretch Closed As Lorry Fire Melts Road :- The M6 could be closed until around 4pm between junction 13 southbound after a lorry fire melted the road.

Let me hear you say "I use evidence and critical thinking to arrive at my non-dogmatic conclusions!"

The tiles are made out of material called LI-900, which is 94% air by volume, and 99.9% pure silica by mass. With a density of 0.1442 g/cm³ they have very high thermal capacity, with remarkably low thermal conductivity. This means at 1200 C you can hold it in your hand by the edges.
The american space shuttles are covered in these tiles, to insulate against sunlight in space and the heat of re-entry.

It doesn't matter if you're going the speed limit. You may feel like you're doing the right thing by slowing a speeder down, or you may feel it's your RIGHT to drive in any lane you 'darn well please.'

You're not. It's not.
And you ARE breaking the law.

Here's how it is DESIGNED to work:
You're in what you think is just like any other lane except that it's 'fast'. Someone approaches you from behind at 64mph (and you look down to see you're going 57mph and you switch to your smug 'justified' face because the sign says 55). While rather close in proximity, the driver begs you to move over.

Oh, how you should.

But you don't.

The driver tries to be patient and now cars start lining up behind both of you. There's a quick flash of the brights, (Which means the driver would like to pass) and if you look up from your phone you either move over, or your ego decides that you'll be stubborn (and in some cases actually slow down ON PURPOSE). In most cases you don't even notice the signal (flash to pass) but you just start complaining about the guy riding your bumper.

Now there's four or five vehicles lining up behind you while you have a LOT of distance ahead of you and enough room to move over. Now the sixth vehicle back finally jets across two lanes of traffic to go around not only you and the cars behind you, but but also around the slower cars in the two lanes to your right, only to find that there's no GOOD reason for you to be IN THE WAY.

Note that he used the 'SLOW' lane to do this in and dangerously passes on the right.

Move over. You don't have to be stubborn. It's not your lane. You don't have to be self-righteous. Please be part of the solution. Don't cause traffic jams and contribute to road rage.
