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.

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.

I worked out why the buildings were always grimey in Shanghai .. Because if you clean them down they will just get dirty tomorrow

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.

Why do they put the chicken feet next to the duck gizzards in the supermarket?  It makes so hard to chose.

How can you take a company seriously when they bounce emails sent to sales or support?  Hey Acer I'm not buying your products if you won't let me ask pre-sales support questions.  If you only offer Windows 8 models, well good luck with that, but I have cash ready to spent and it won't wasted in toy OSes.

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.

My BYD F0 doesn't seem so small compared with this.

A bit hot today.  That's 100F in the shade for those who are metric impaired.
