This video is a good analysis of how Facebook curates your Newsfeed.
If you have hundreds of 'active' friends - those who post lots and post often - then I can see how your Newsfeed can get cluttered, leading to you missing something you're actually interested in.
But I think the way Facebook determines what gets seen is 'anti-social'. I don't just get texts and IMs from friends who have paid, I get every single crappy message. And I like that. It's all part of the social fabric.
I'm not bashing Facebook, it has its place, but it's always a good idea to understand what you're using.
Hey, Brits, are you ready?
I managed to get a Chromecast last year (when Amazon US accidentally shipped them internationally) and absolutely love it.
Yes, it doesn't have a huge number of supporting apps/services yet but since Google released the SDK for developers we're seeing more and more apps supporting it.
I'm loving BubbleUPnP UPnP/DLNA at the moment. It allows you to stream content from any device on your network to any device on your network (Chromecast & DLNA)

A new online course which offers people the chance to study the work of Nobel Prize-winning physicist Professor Peter Higgs is being offered.
The free seven-week course, entitled The Discovery of the Higgs boson, launches on Monday, 10 February and has already attracted more than 10,000 learners to register.
The course explores the scientific advancements that have led to the building of the Large Hadron Collider, in Switzerland, and to the detection of the boson.
It features interviews with Professor Higgs and filmed lectures by a team of world-class physicists from the Higgs Centre at the University of Edinburgh.
Students can debate what they have seen using dedicated online discussion spaces, as well as social media.

"Motorola had become a company that embodied the Google "spirit" - open, innovative, risk-taking. You know, the sort of corporation you'd want to have a beer with. If corporations were people. And had mouths. And drank beer. Anyway... Motorola was cool, man. And then, Google went and sold out the new OEM of choice for a growing number of Android enthusiasts. Treachery most foul! The consensus seems to be that without Google, Motorola cannot still embody those values which many of us came to respect them for above other manufacturers."
