Super excited about this car
 
BMW i3 | Fully Charged
This weeks Fully Charged reveals the newly launched BMW i3, nothing short of a game changer.
I know there has already been some debate of the 'drag race' featured when I drove the car around Brands Hatch. Was the traction control on the BMW M3 turned off (my guess is yes) but what it shows without question is this small, 'city' hatchback is no slouch.
Yes, they're expensive, yes, they have all the limitations of electric vehicles but as I am constantly learning, those limitations are dropping like autumn leaves.
When you take in total running costs over say, 10 years, electric cars are embarrassingly cheap. Very low maintenance, the battery will outlast the car, the 'engine' has one moving part as opposed to 400 -1,000.
Have a look.

Farewell v2!
 
The day is finally here. 

Today, 3.5 years after the original announcement, and after a six month extension, we turned down JavaScript Maps API v2 by migrating remaining maps to v3. 

Though we expect the migration to provide a seamless upgrade for most simple maps, we know that it won’t be successful in all cases. So if you’ve experienced broken maps, please consult our upgrade guide for advice on migrating to v3.

If you have questions about this change, our Developer Relations team and the Google Maps developer community are a great resource. Please refer to our developer site for ways that you can seek assistance.

The city is putting on an amazing sunset this evening. I've never seen the sky and the light coloured quite like this before.

After months of speculation and rumours, Netflix finally announces it will launch in Australia and New Zealand in 2015.

Australia. It's bigger than you think.

If you happened to watch the Eurovision Song Contest semi-final on Thursday, you would have seen an interval segment celebrating the love of Eurovision by many Australians (which I can personally attest to): Eurovision Song Contest: Down Under (Interval Act by Australia; Jessica Mauboy)

In the segment, Australia is dropped into Europe so the Australians can participate, knocking the U.K south. In reality however, if you dropped Australia into Europe you would knock out almost the whole continent. Because Australia is big.

You can try this for yourself using the Google Maps Mercator Puzzle, which scatters country outlines on a map and requires you to drag them back in place. In the process you can see how their size and shapes compare. The puzzle randomly chooses the countries to show, so you may have to reload and few times before Australia is included:
http://www.morethanamap.com/demos/visualization/puzzle

I was always reminded of the sheer size of Australia whenever I flew back to England via Asia. We would take off, drinks would be served, I'd watch a film, a meal would be served, I'd watch another film, and then check our progress. We were invariably still over Australia.

This is so worrying it's depressing.

Why, when we're on the cusp of RE<C are we investing in the past and not the future?
Only reference to Australia's $20bn renewable industry is repeat of promise to hold another investigation into the health impacts of wind farms

Because the are climate dinosaurs!! It is pointless though. Despite what they may want, Solar PV and wind are cheaper than a new coal or gas power station now, and are getting cheaper by the year. Once Solar CSP (24/7) becomes cheaper than them within this decade, it is game over for fossils!!

This cafe has more in common with a hospital kiosk than what you'd expect from a waterfront cafe in a beautiful location. The food is middling to poor. For example, when we ordered fried eggs, one of the yolks was broken and the egg was dry and awful: they just shouldn't have served it. Our coffees came out with the coffee spilt everywhere. The decor is terrible. Cheap plastic tables and chairs, and a neglected counter in a concrete husk of a building. The service isn't any better. If you're looking for a nice place to enjoy your breakfast, why not walk a little further round the corner to the hidden Blackfish cafe? A much better experience for the same price.

The food was absolutely perfect. It's the type of meal where you're sad that your main course is going to run out soon (and you end up ordering a second at the end!) The $30 set 3 course dinner is amazing value. The décor is a little rough, but the service is fantastic.

Great quality food, fantastic flavours. However, the takeaway is really overpriced.

The only decent café anywhere in the area. The coffee is pretty decent, and the breakfasts reasonable value.
