I might have been in East Asia for too long, but they could have just built upwards a few dozen storeys and the footprint of the development would remain untouched :-)

Still, I'd be willing to give up on my supertall skyscraper plans if it means demolishing the council house

Google's Self Driving Car Update

Google recently unveiled the first truly self-driving car, shown here: http://googleblog.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/just-press-go-designing-self-driving.html - no steering wheel, no pedals, just press go.

What I find amazing is seeing what the car sees, so watch this: A Ride in the Google Self Driving Car

Free Speech! Free Speech!

This is needed every time someone complains about not having free speech because other people tell them to shut up for being a moron.

Chromecast... Audio Dongle?

A while ago I saw a thread by +Alex Masters about how Chromecast would be awesome if you could hook it straight up to an audio system - cutting out the  visual aspect. His post is here > https://plus.google.com/+AlexMasters/posts/JfWyBsdD7c9

So, Google Now, knowing what I like to read about, suggested an article from Know Your Mobile called "Chromecast Tips & Tricks: Gettin' More Bang For Your Buck". I figured I knew a lot about my little dongle anyway but clicked through > http://www.knowyourmobile.com/devices/google-chromecast/22055/chromecast-tips-tricks-gettin-more-bang-your-buck

About half way down is a section called "Turn Chromecast Into Budget Sonos System" - by the way, +Sonos has just announced official support for Chromecasting to its devices but what about those audio systems that are too dumb?

They link to a YouTube video - How to turn your Chrromecast into a networked audio adapter - which shows how to have your Chromecast HDMI dongle plug in to an audio system using a 3.5mm jack.

Genius.

And here it is! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1080P-HDMI-to-VGA-and-Audio-Converter-Adapter-for-HDTV-Monitor-Projector-White-/221368338153

Edit:

Might need a coupler  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HDMI-Female-to-HDMI-Female-Adapter-Extender-Coupler-Extension-Joiner-/151166169863

TrueCrypt: Don't Panic!

On May 28th the http://www.truecrypt.org website was reduced to a handful of pages with the following warning:

"WARNING: Using TrueCrypt is not secure as it may contain unfixed security issues"

"This page exists only to help migrate existing data encrypted by TrueCrypt."

So began the panic.

However, the page I've linked to is a great reference of what happened and (maybe) why, and that TrueCrypt is still perfectly usable.

I came across +Steve Gibson from an episode of +Tom Merritt's Daily Tech News Show ( http://www.dailytechnewsshow.com/ ) - which everyone should be listening to, btw.

UK: Solihull's Speed Cameras May Be Back!

"Solihull Council, working alongside West Midlands Police, will look at the idea of introducing fixed point digital speed cameras – five of which will replace the existing speed cameras turned off in April last year.

The existing ‘fixed spot camera housings,’ which are in place but not currently in use, will either be replaced or upgraded"
Plans are in place to switch fixed speed cameras in Solihull back on as part of a £400,000 digital pilot scheme.
