2014 brought us the selfie stick, 2015 brings us the quadcopter selfie.  Want one?  Give me a shout.

Now I can tell the temperature inside and outside my apartment from my watch. Only takes three different wireless technologies and a 18,000km data trip but now I know the temperature in the room I am in now.

I guess this is why I don't get invited to meetings with customers...
This is quite simply brilliant, watch the video if you are an expert in your field. We have all felt like this #engineer at times for whatever field it is that you specialize in...

Another reason I'm going home, trying translate a Chinese PDF fails:
ping -c 100 upload.docs.google.com

Result from NZ -
100 packets transmitted, 100 received, 0% packet loss, time 99270ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 226.250/230.987/266.285/6.662 ms

Result from China -
100 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 99791ms

Seriously China, how is a developer meant to create anything when basic services don't work?  I will be so glad to get home.

One of the reasons I'm return home.  This is the view I woke up to on a recent trip to Shanghai.  You can just see the outlines of some of the iconic build that in reality are not far away.  The view out my window that morning felt like a post apocalypses scene from a B grade movie.

The same?  From the same packet but very different.  Bottom one is pineapple, tastes good.  Top one is corn, tastes worse than it sounds! Just small case of the things that catch me out in China.
