This is my real birthday present to myself, a wonderful pair of +Bang and Olufsen​​​​​​ H6 headphones.

Stylish and very comfortable the H6s are some of the best headphones I've ever listened to when listening to compressed mp3 music. Obviously everyone hears differently so it's hard to write a review.

The mids and highs are amazing, when listening to opera or classical music, it feels if you are in the middle of the stage.

Bassy music like hip hop and dance come across OK but not as bassy perhaps as 'let's over mix the bass' Beats etc.
So if you're a big bass head these are not for you.

The ability to select the left or right headphone to plug the cord into or the ability to daisy chain headphones makes this a rather handy feature.

Nicer looking than the +Bose Quiet Comfort too.

The retail price for +Bang and Olufsen​​​​​​ is hefty and although an amazing product I think slightly overpriced for what they are. Luckily I didn't pay anywhere near the RRP for these. A$550 US $450 UK £330

If you were listening to an uncompressed audio track through a proper HiFi amplifier, I think this is where these guys would be at their very best

I used to covet their linear tracking record players. May you have joy of it.

Love it! Twitter has made little +Eurovision Song Contest​ flags! Very cool.

To watch it live so we in Australia can vote, for us on the East coast it started at 5am.

I've always found the German Enigma Machine an amazing and brilliant computer, however what I find even more amazing was how it was cracked by the brilliant mathematician Alan Turing amongst others..
+Kevin Clift has done a grand job of telling you all you need to know - see below.
 
 
Enigma Machine Video Series
by +James Grime 
(recreated due to apparent deletion)

Many people have heard of the famous Enigma Machine developed in Germany as an electro-mechanical cipher device and later picked up and made even more sophisticated by the German military forces in WWII, but how many people have seen a real one in action?

Mathematician +James Grime has an actual Enigma Machine in his possession, and in this video series he will demonstrate it, in his own charming and inimitable fashion, whilst addressing questions such as:    

How and why were the rotors set?
What was the role of the plugboard?
How come the same letter could be coded differently in the same text?
How many ways was it possible to set the Naval machine?
What procedural and design flaws created the chink in its armor?
What were the roles of Mathematicians like Alan Turing?

we drove from Canberra to Adelaide a week or so back took us 12 days  (driving behind up to 40 or so cyclists) and the change in scenery was simply amazing, this land has so much, yet, the most hauntingly beautiful terrain was to drive through the region of the Adelaide hills where the fires were only a few months back.. it was wet and windy, and the regrowth in the bush in the mist was simply amazing...
sadly, we were driving and didn't get to take any pics of our own, but there's a few I can grab from others to post.. someday soon.

I am a theatre professional and a classically trained musician. These are my picks for most best musical songs from just listening to the CD. Perhaps after their performance it could be a completely different story.

My favourite song is 'Hour of the Wolf' by Azerbaijan, however, I think the Andrea Bocelli inspired 'Grande Amore' by Italy might take the top prize.

Inspired by a +JUGERNAUTS - SYDNEY FOOD | BARS | DINING| AUSTRALIA​ review, I automatically had a New York bagel craving.

Not as generous as American servings but the closest I've come to an authentic NY bagel here in Sydney. I ordered the Rubens - called the Midtown here. It was delicious.

+Danielle Lonnon I think you can update the story by adding more posts.
I think Google will attempt to redo the story. I've done it because I added more photos and videos after the fact

Funky bar up the roof of an office block. It was certainly well decorated and themed. The staff were lovely. Drinks were hipster expensive so don't be too shocked there. However for such an out of the way place I'm surprised how busy and crowded it was.

What a transformation this old tiled working man's pub has had. It now has a great English country gentry look which I really liked. The bar is long however the venue is small - which still keeps with its history of its six o'clock swill days. The decor is fun - with lots of reds and leathers and Victoriana knick-knacks which gives the place drama. The beers and ciders on tab are all local or boutique. You won't find a commercial pint here. There was a great selection of ales too. There is a kitchen, which does good looking pub grub. As it is across the road from a music college, the prices aren't that bad at all.

Really nice restaurant in the newly updated Canberra Centre. It was lovely to sit outside (there are huge heaters) The food was great (simple Italian remixed by Jamie Oliver) and tasty. The prices were decent too. Compared to Sydney where you have to queue for half an hour it was delightful to walk right on it. The staff were fun and friendly. Compared to Sydney and Melbourne, Canberra is bit of a boring country town. Kudos to Jamie for opening up here. Most probably one of the best restaurants in the Canberra CBD.

Well located hotel in the Canberra CBD. A block or two walk up to the Canberra Centre and theatres. The rooms were large and had only been recently renovated however the bathrooms are yet to be done. If you're on the top floor overlooking the lake and mountains it is a really lovely view. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Room service was over priced and not the best but i guess your paying for the convenience. We noticed that airline staff stay here and the NSW Waratahs Rugby team had also camped here which was is always a good sign.

I recently had a NY bagel craving experience and I had heard all about Brooklyn Hide so I decided to come and check it out. The cafe is clean, well decorated with lots of available seating. The staff were uber friendly too. I ordered the Rubens bagel- called the Midtown here, definitely not as generous as American servings but the closest I've come to an authentic NY bagel here in Sydney. After being treated to authentic NY bagels, the size and cost were a little disappointing. However the corned beef was great and so it was rather tasty. I rang up the shop the next day to buy some plain bagels and said I would be down at 4pm to collect them. When I walked in at 4, the bagels had just come out of the oven and were waiting for me. Can't beat freshness or customer service there. Great place, just wish they were bigger almost American like servings.

This is a temporary structure only here once a year for Opera Australia's opera on the harbour. Being a temporary structure OA does a good job of making something out of nothing. The views are worth a million dollars and the temporary bathrooms only get better.

As someone who works in the theatre, I don't find the Google offices nerdy, I find it magical and theatrical. Themed rooms with useful props and big sets with unique and charismatic characters. You sure this isn't a theatre company? Oh no wait Google has money, while the performing art does not.
