This is perfect in every way.

I've owned a Pebble smart-watch for about a month now and it has changed the way I do a few things with my phone and, by extension, my life. Here are my favourites:

1. I can read and archive email right from my wrist
That means if I get an email letting me know that an eBay package has been dispatched and I know I don't need to read anything more than the subject line and maybe a couple of extra lines then I can make it so that that email is not there when I next look at my phone.

2. I don't use my phone as often. Many of the times I would usually unlock my phone is just to see what the noise was but with the watch telling me that I only use my phone if I need to manage the action right away. Otherwise the phone stays in my pocket.

3. I keep my phone on silent
Now that I get a small vibration on my wrist I don't need to hear my phone go off ever. If I get a call I feel the vibration and see the caller ID on my wrist before I even think to touch my phone. I can even decline the call from my wrist if I'm busy.

4. I consider the battery level on my phone less
My phone is lasting longer because I turn the screen on way less.

5. I don't need an alarm to wake me up any more
The watch vibrates to wake me up at whatever time I say and I definitely prefer it to a loud noise. It wakes me up without fail noiselessly every day and I would own this watch for that feature alone! 

The thing about owning a smart-watch isn't that it fixes all your problems but that it solves problems you didn't know you had. If that's not smart, I don't know what is.

WHAT THE F***??!

Is this for real? Telstra really going as far as blocking OTA updates that come direct from Google? For devices not even purchased from Telstra? 

This shit is beyond infuriating.

Since Google started rolling out the over-the-air (OTA) updates for Android 5.0 Lollipop to Nexus devices, many users have been regularly checking for a system update – many Australians, to no avail. Telstra users are reporting that the update is being blocked, even on phones that were not sold by the carrier. The issue is affecting Nexus 4 and Nexus[Read More...]

Why even share this? The people that should read this are not the people that will.
This is the second article in a series, How we make decisions, which explores our decision-making processes. How well do we consider all factors involved in a decision, and what helps and what holds us…

Quite tightly packed but it's a good place for vegetarian food and people watching.

Great place for a quick meal or a cheeky beer. Not too loud and quick service.

You can't enjoy yourself in a bar with overpriced drinks and guards whose job it is to find reasons to kick you out. If they kick you out they won't let you tell your friends and they won't let you finish your drink. It didn't happen to me but it was like being in the hunger games or something. Your friends will get kicked out and it will ruin your fun and you'll pay $30 for it.
