Robot overlords +Joshua Wulf​...
Spot, the silent robo-dog made by Google-owned company Boston Dynamics, enjoyed the great outdoors for a week back in September. Not to fetch sticks or roll around in the grass, but to train... with the Marines. It's gone a long way since its time stalking indoors, getting kicked by well-meaning engineers. The corps tested Spot's ability to traverse terrains rougher than concrete floors, such as hills, woodlands and cities, controlling it from 500 meters away with a laptop and a video game controller. It was apparently so easy to pilot the quadruped, even a four-year-old could do it.
The quadruped can now peek around corners to look for enemies.

There is 50 year old software still running out there...
"the computer failure had affected a system known as DECOR, which is used by air traffic controllers to communicate weather information to pilots. Pilots rely on the system when weather conditions are poor. DECOR, which is used in takeoff and landings, runs on Windows 3.1,"

Try not to think of that when you next fly into Paris during bad weather ;-P
How many years ago was the last time anyone saw Windows 3.1? Turns out it's still running key systems at a major French airport. Except when it breaks down, that is.

Totally this.
My evolution using Android..
Get Android... 
Learn to root..
Learn to flash ROM..
become flashaholic flashing multiple ROMs per day crack flashing.
Never having the same ROM/setup for two days in a row
Want more power....
Flash a custom kernel.....
Too much battery being used
Now horsepower  is not so important.. Need more battery life...
Need to squeeze more battery life out of device
Tired of custom kernel stability(even when not OC/UC UV)
Stock kernel... custom ROM, rooted..
Tired of all the bugs and little nuisances in custom ROMS..
Stock rom, stock kernel... still rooted of course
Root?  I don't need root anymore..
Completely bone stock
The end...

Hi, I'm Jared (or jaredmorgs on most social media and forums I frequent).

Here's what I like, and why I'm using Google+

What I like
  • Learning about Android shenanigans, 
  • Pinball (both IRL and simulated),
  • Scooters, 
  • Beta Testing Android apps, 
  • Contributing to Android App documentation. 
Why I'm using G+
  • Facebook is becoming a freemium network. Promoting your posts for a cost: how about "no thanks".
  • Twitter is good for quick updates, but not for expressing what you really think without committing crimes against grammar.
  • G+ is a "rich experience". 
  • You don't have to beg for access to a person's profile so you can see what they're about.
  • Public posting is the norm, not the exception.

I'm a pretty regular visitor to Blue Infusion. Namely because this cafe really caters well for family outings. We treat our kids to a babycino (free) and a small treat (usually under $1) from the cake cabinet. The cakes are all baked on premise, and they have a distinctly English theme. Cakes like the Almond and Rhubarb Bakewell Tart are a highlight for me. You can get a cake and coffee deal for about $6.50 at the time of writing this review. Great for groups of people, individuals wanting a great coffee fix in North Lakes without the crowds of Westfield, and parents wanting to feel normal and go out for an outing.

Good for most things, but if you need Cold and Flu "old formula" you need to get a script and they will order it in next day.

I took my wifes' rings to Gold River to get them Rhodium Plated again after a long, hard married life on her finger. I have to say they look jeweler shop new after getting them done. I was told that some jewelers in North Lakes only immerse the rings for 10 seconds in the solution (and charge around $130 for the privilege) :(. These guys immerse the rings for 3 minutes. At the standard rate of $65/ring, this is *fantastic* value. We did have an issue with a slipped stone from the ring when we got it home, but this was quickly rectified by the jeweler for free when we informed them. The jeweler also puts the ring through the ultrasonic machine before the plating process, which is what caused the stone to dislodge. When I returned, the on-site jeweler did a check of the entire setting and did notice a few other stones that were loose. I wonder if this check was done on the other rings we got re-plated as well? I would have thought the setting would have been checked either post-ultrasonic treatment, or before putting them through the machine. Maybe change this part of the process to ensure this doesn't happen to other customers.

Stocks pseudoephedrine products like cold and flu tabs. You need to go in person with photo ID and request the product.

Do not pass Taylor Street Coffee Shop without trying the Taylor Street Hash. Sweet mother of FSM, this stuff is an addiction I won't be able to get out of my head for a while. The queue can sometimes be a bit long, but if you decide to wait in a queue of 5 diners, you should be able to get a seat in about 10 mintues. Food is reasonably priced, and service is super fast.
