Tesla is a brilliant company. Just saw these crates at a gas station in Germany and it looks like they are building out a network of charging stations. I also hear that they are selling their powerwall here in Germnay too.

I think we have a MAJOR bug +Google+! How do you do 649MB of background data when all transfers on cellular are disabled.

550MB of background data transfers while taking pictures in Montreal. Google Photo is set to only upload on WiFi and while charging.... Hmm

100MB of background data to show 2 pictures from from my Google Photos library and no I did not go and load each and every picture to get to the 2. It looks like as I scrolled through the list of thumbnails it was downloading the whole image behind the scenes.

I have, until you have fixed it, disabled background data on G+ but it still doesn't help me that your application has blown my data for the month 7 days into my monthly cycle.

The universe has lost a great man today.

This morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles Leonard Nimoy passed away. He was 83.

You will alway live long and prosper in our hearts. Rest in peace!

All Canadians, you need to share this post to every Canadian you have on your lists and send e-mail to your respective provincial and federal representatives. The ruling governments in Canada are destroying Canada's competitiveness by allowing the oil companies to gouge us on diesel in turn make us LOSE JOBS!!!

Currently diesel is at an all time record high of 30+ cents more than regular gasoline when it's supposed to be about 5-10 cents cheaper.

If you are a supplier out of Toronto and ship product to Detroit you already know it's more expensive to produce here with the cost of hydro and natural gas. Now if you add diesel costs to it you are no longer competitive.

A single US truck travelling an 800km (500 miles) round trip at and average of 6mpg would cost a company approx $216.58 US. Diesel is at 2.599/g in the US times 500 miles divided by 6mpg. Annually that ONE trip will cost the company $54,145 in diesel. (5 days a week, 50 weeks a year)

A single Canadian truck travelling an 800km (500 miles) round trip at and average of 6mpg would cost a company approx $289.12 US ($349.83 CDN). Diesel is at 3.469/g US (1.109/l CDN) in Canada times 500 miles divided by 6mpg. Annually that ONE trip will cost the company $72,280 in diesel.

If you did the math it costs a Canadian company $18,135 MORE a year for a SINGLE truck doing a SINGLE ROUTE!

If the governments of this country kept the oil companies in check and we followed the global pattern, as well as our historical pattern, diesel would be 5-10 cents less than regular gasoline (0.859/l) and at just 5 cents, 0.809/l that same trip would cost $210.88 US ($255.17 CDN) and the annual cost would be $52,720 SAVING the company $1,425 US annually on this ONE truck doing ONE route compared to running it out of the US.

I'm really excited to try it out. I've tried the rocketstick versions I'm the past but they really weren't ready. This should be ready to go and refined.

It's Pebble time!

Just got my Kick start edition in. In my personal opinion this is the best smart watch platform on the market. It works with Android and iOS, colour, quick swap wristbands, mic, tons of apps and watch faces available and most important of all has a week battery life!

One of the greatest men I have ever known! Sharp wit, funny, honest and caring. I and everyone that has ever met him will miss him greatly.

Rest in peace my friend, you will never be forgotten and will live in our hearts forever.

Well it's official, Android 5.0.1 has some SERIOUS issues.

Almost daily I loose all sound on my Nexus 5 since the OTA and today was even more special, my Nexus 5 locked up after the encryption pass phrase entry and went completely black after about 30 seconds of boot screen.

I had to hold the power button for over 30 secs to get it to boot again.

So far I'm not impressed with the bug entry process. I have submitted 2 so far and both got worthless responses from senior members, most recent one was wrong forum. Where the hell else is it supposed to go?!

I love this phone and the Android environment but they need some real testers that use it out in the real world like me as these bugs are getting out of hand.

An open letter to the +Conservative Party - Parti conservateur, +Ontario Liberal Party, +Suncor Energy, +Shell Canada and all the other oil companies and politicians in Canada.

As oil has dropped to almost 50% of it's recent value ($66) and fuel prices are plummeting in the US to under $2.30 a gallon for gasoline and $3.50 for diesel....

WHY ARE CANADIANS STILL BEING BENT OVER THE BARREL!?

Why has diesel fuel gone up!? Please don't tell me shortage because that's a crock with less than 5% of vehicles in Canada running diesel and you have to make diesel to make gasoline. In other parts of the world, outside of the US and the UK, diesel is always 5-10 cents Euro cheaper than gasoline and they have about 50% of their cars running diesel over gasoline.

I'll tell you why GREED! They know we have to pay for our groceries no matter what so they charge whatever they want for diesel as it's the only transportation for our goods. Oil goes down, gasoline goes down, diesel goes up and so does my grocery bill!

The government's of Canada couldn't get a care in the world as they collect tax and love to side with big business...

Lower these prices NOW and stop breaking our backs for your GREED!

Fellow Canadians, please send this to your MP and ask for an answer. Everything you buy groceries, etc, will go up because they are raising the cost of the fuel that is required to transport it to your store and they will reduce gasoline slowly to throw you off.

The ambiance is quite nice, servers were very friendly and attentive. Fajitas and shrimp were very tasty and large portions which account for the price being higher than I would expect. Overall great place which I would visit again if I was back in town.

We've been coming here for 17 years and love the resort. Always well maintained and something new is done or replaced every year. The resort is small and the people are friendly. It's across the street from the beach and has a stop for the island trolley right in front. 50 cents and you can take the trolley to time square, which is the main beach and pier for Ft Myer's Beach.

I have been at this restaurant twice and will go back again! The food was fresh, cooked perfectly upon order and tasted great. The owner is very friendly and also very accommodating. I had a late day at work and wanted a large Macedonian salad, which was not on the menu, he said no problem and made me a perfect large salad that filled me up. If you want great food in a quaint little restaurant I recommend this place!

This was my first time at the market and was looking for supplies for my European pastries I make every year. My normal source was sold out of poppy seeds so I decided to try store. The store is quite nice, very big and has a large variety of goods. Unfortunately I am extremely disappointed that the poppy seeds that I purchase were bad. Extremely bitter which means they were old or incorrectly stored and seeing it is a traditional staple in Eastern European baking for Christmas there is no excuse. Will no be buying that there again in the future.

A quaint little restaurant with a super attentive and polite staff. I had the half BBQ chicken dinner and it was really good. Great smoke flavour and super tender. Will definitely come back and try something else on the menu.
