The situation with USB-C cables shouldn't be allowed to continue, but in the mean time the easiest way to cover yourself as much as possible is to plug it into an inexpensive hub or similar before plugging it into your expensive laptop as its the supplier of the power which potentially dies.

Remember to check "https://usbccompliant.com/"!
 
Buyer beware.
Over the past year or so, one of the biggest tech stories have been about one of the smallest things: a USB plug. Specifically, the new USB Type-C plug and port, which promises to become the single thing that we can use to connect all our devices, from monitors to phones to computers to whatever we dream up next

Looks very handy particularly if you have fitness data in multiple places. You get a consolidated view and can even export that to Microsoft HealthVault or even to a CSV stored on Google Drive.

Sounds handy to know :-)
 
According to a study your poop may contains about 75% water. Well that means if you hold your poop longer then it may get dry, because more water will be consumed by your body through intestine. Chances are you may get into constipation. So drink more water and never hold your poop for longer.

Interesting read for all those scared of big bad germs.
Don't want to get sick this season? Sure, you've heard the basics: carry hand sanitiser everywhere. Grab public-bathroom door handles with paper towels. Hold your breath when your unwell-looking subway seat partner starts coughing. Bad news,...

Some interesting information and pictures of this hottest (by yearly average) part of the world.
Nature Photographer Erez Marom shares his experience shooting in the Danakil Depression in Ethiopia, one of the most inhospitable places on earth. In this article he explains why he was attracted to this region, why it is so challenging to shoot there, and how he went about creating images that he's proud of. Read more

Exactly right, avoid plastics if at all possible, I drink from stainless steel or glass as much as possible and never microwave food in plastic containers.  I'll survive a few minutes longer that you guys....
Public concerns over the potential harm of bisphenol A (BPA) – an industrial chemical used to strengthen plastic in things like water bottles and children's toys – has seen many manufacturers develop 'safer', BPA-free alternatives in recent years....

+grant6 brown7 I'm just taking sensible and trivial to implement precautions.

I'm amazed that anyone can be that surprised, out of the many chemicals they use in plastics you think they found BPA to be the only unsafe one? Thats amazing, anyway just a sample: http://www.breastcancerfund.org/clear-science/environmental-breast-cancer-links/plastics/?referrer=https://www.google.com.au/

This looks like 3 bugs to me but perhaps someone can provide a workaround or tell me how I might be making a mistake.

The dark grey time (underneath the real time) is getting annoying... If I keep tapping the watch until the minutes turn over then it will refresh and be good for a while.

Looks like a similar situation for the temperature.

This is on an LG G watch and in the past I had to turn off transitions between ambient and normal display as it would leave garbage all other the screen.

While I'm here the screen shows "Min 16 to Max 22" a lot of times the MIN=MAX which is not correct, what is going on? Also the watch face is supposed to be fully visible when the notification pops up, that is not the case below.

Thanks for any pointers.

This is what we need to see more of, we need to stop throwing things away and need to come up with uses for it. Hopefully whats left is used as fertilizer.
One Colorado city is generating renewable natural gas from human waste, and then using it to fuel city vehicles.

There are a lot of fish in the ocean... When you have finished here have a look at "http://inhabitat.com/did-you-know-there-could-be-plastic-waste-particles-in-your-sea-salt/"!

I believe that all polluters should pay (taxes) for the privilege, that goes for green house gasses as well as plastics, dioxins, anything, otherwise we risk killing this planet.

Its amazing how much can be reused when there is a cost involved in not doing so, even "waste" heat can be used for greenhouses or heating water.

Of course it wouldn't hurt any to get the world population going in the other direction or we need to colonise space for Earth and humans to survive.
The number of fish in our oceans will be outweighed by plastic waste over the next 35 years, according to a new report from the World Economic Forum (WEF) . The announcement comes after a pretty bleak week for news, during which scientists told us...

I just bought the pro version and while in general its very good, there are some areas where I think you'd be losing sales, so my feedback:

It seems that most options don't work so its important to remove them or make selecting the right one simpler, the app does let you choose a model but still leave many incompatable options available (rather than grayed out or otherwise unavailable). For example I can select WAV output at the default sample rate of 8000 or up it to 16000 hz and possibly higher but 44,100 hz definately doesn't work and simply results in a zero length file.

There should be a test mode button against most of the settings that would test the option and if a 0 length file results (I'm assuming you are using libraries were no better checking is possible) then its failed.

I don't think there is any excuse for your application not detecting 0 length files for bad settings after recording a call.

BUG: I have changed the filename pattern and that prevents the app from placing the files into the "incoming" and "outgoing" folders, they go into the root instead.

Good lookin bloke :-)
Introduction
I'm interested in technology and have a basic homepage at "http://dennisbareis.com/" which includes a lot of my freeware including the very popular MAKEMSI & PPWIZARD tools.  I am a fan of automation (and consistency/reliability) and this is the basis of a lot of my tools.

I was a Microsoft Setup & Deployment MVP for 7 years (2004-2010) and also have a unappreciated 2 cent's worth blog where I tend to rant and rave :-)

I love Android phones and currently have a Samsung (Google) Galaxy Nexus, this is my 3rd android phone (after Motorola Milestone & HTC DESIRE HD), I wanted a nexus to get quick updates and so far I'm getting updates which I'd never got on my previous phones.

I'm trying to eat fairly healthy food and do more exercise hence the 3km workday cycle ride to and from the railway station.
Bragging rights
Microsoft had awarded me a Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award yearly from 2004 to 2010 (for Setup & Deployment). My MAKEMSI user group has 650+ users. My PPWIZARD group has 220+ members.
