Rain jacket arrived just in time for #holiday #adventure  - Ready for anything now! #Peru   #MachuPicchu . The jacket is the #Rab Muztag Maya, fully waterproof, fits perfectly for me, super lightweight, and a big thanks to +The Outdoor Shop​ who delivered it next day for free and offered it half the price of high street stores! Amazing! Gets the #JasonApproved  seal of approval for anyone wanting a rain jacket which does not break the bank, but still very functional and good quality.

For all the #science lovers out there - what happens when you drop an expanded slinky to the floor? Something you may not realise... Pretty awesome. #Physics

A rather informative article on how you can use other companies hard work (especially in the social media context) to your own gain. Quite interesting to read. http://thenextweb.com/entrepreneur/2014/02/20/7-things-can-legally-steal-successful-companies/

One of the nicest introductions to machine learning I have seen in a long time. I hope they continue the series. Oh, and a beautifully designed site too. http://www.r2d3.us/visual-intro-to-machine-learning-part-1/
What is machine learning? See how it works with our animated data visualization.

Good comparison between #GoogleCloud vs #AWS  in terms of cost. Check out the pricing calculator here (https://cloud.google.com/products/calculator/) or click the image below for the original article. Thanks +Mandy Waite 
 
To help you understand your total costs in the cloud, we asked Enterprise Strategy Group to independently evaluate Google Cloud Platform.

The results: Google Cloud’s cost advantages over #AWS ranged from 15-88%. Find out how our pricing models stack up: http://goo.gl/mlWoY9

Really charming little local pub which even has a friendly cat! Lovely on a sunny day. Away from the busy streets and tourists.

A genuine polish experience. A bit off the beaten track, but the food was genuine. Really traditional Polish - confirmed by my Polish friend who was with me, and having travelled to Gdansk myself it was authentic. Tasty, filling, and would come back for more. Certainly try the cabbage filled with minced meat and rice in creamy mushroom sauce. Very nice! Cash only, so take money before visiting.

Very similar experience to previous reviewer - can not fault service or quality of food. Was a little on the small side for me but the quality justified the price none the less. Wonderful attentive staff. Would come back. Has outside seating for sunny days!

Similar as others have already reviewed. Nice atmosphere, good food, but I have had better! Good for a social gathering though.

Wonderful selection of beers, reminds me of my time in delirium in Belgium. Really recommend the Chimay Bleu, dark beer, smooth creamy taste. Great fries too work perfectly with beer. Will be back again soon!

Wow. Lovely venue and atmosphere, and most importantly unique and tasty cocktails. Came here to the bar with friend after work and had my mind blown by the Ice and Fire cocktail! Has lavender and a number of other rarely used ingredients which I won't spoil the surprise for. A bit pricer than nearby average, but worth the extra cost. Will be back.
