Since upgrading my #Nexus 4 to the 5.1 factory image I don't seem to be able to screenshot using the normal volume down and power key method.

Weird.

Maybe a reboot will fix it.

Yup, that did it. Oh the irony.

It seems the power button wasn't registering at all. I couldn't even get the power down menu up to reboot it, so had to force it off.

I have a suggestion

#Android's account backup services are pretty sweet. They've improved even more so since the advent of #Lollipop. When restoring my device I can simply select the device and apps which will be restored, which is neat, and most of my config is just reapplied.

There's one thing I'd like to see added to the backups of my device settings though - my mobile data limit setup.

If I flash a new ROM to my #Nexus4 then it'd be ideal if Android already knew what billing cycle I'd set, and what my most recent data limits are. It's something that I often forget to go back and set post flash, and given that my billing cycle can change it'd be nice if it just happened behind the scenes so I can get on with configuring all my apps.

All things (and commentary) aside, regardless of hardware or platform I think most people who use +Google Chrome​​ as their go-to browser would agree that if #Google could make it more efficient and less resource hungry it'd be a huge #win.

Not to mention an end to constant frustration.

Google’s Chrome is the best web browser for my needs. Apple’s MacBooks are the best computers for my needs. So why is the combination of the two such a wretched and chronically compromised...

Wow, this is pretty sweet. +YouTube​ now supports 360° video just like Photo Sphere. Watch it in Chrome or Android...

Haha - this is too funny. An #Apple Engineer talks about the new #Macbook Air...

I like #Hangouts, but sending messages to multiple recipients continues to frustrate me. The fact that text and Hangout conversations don't merge in to one seamless conversation annoys me too...

So Punk IPA is the best selling #craftbeer in UK supermarkets.

There's a reason for that; it's an absolutely bostin' pint. Many come close, but none surpass it IMO.

I'd like to think I had a little part to play in that accolade too :)

So according to the latest #EquityForPunks update +BrewDog​ are set to turn over £50 million this year.

That's what happens when you make awesome beer, by the people, for the people.

Unbelievable value for money, but I've never seen one close up so I'd be hesitant to invest.

Can we expect a review +Charlie Callow​?

+Charlie Callow​ I'd certainly vote in favour of a Little Green Unboxing #poll

It seems +LastPass​ got an update to #materialdesign overnight, and it looks all the more better for it.

We can all relate this this I'm sure. #lookup, speak to someone, be nice. Life is short, make it count.

They say lightning doesn't strike twice. Boss Whedon begs to differ.

This looks ace!
