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...]

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.

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…

After buying our burgers and having eaten half of them we were told to hurry up and get out by a security guard. If you're about to close don't sell food to people who want to eat it in store.

Popcorn was divided into sweet or salty but both were mixed and the prices exceeded that of a comparable weight of cocaine. The coke was warm and cost half the price of the ticket for the movie itself. After purchasing the popcorn I noticed that the popcorn machine was a garbage bag filled with cold popcorn behind the counter. Also this place was excellent at hiding signs. Directions were asked for several times in the space of 3 hours.

This was simultaneously the worst hotel/hostel I stayed in and the most expensive hotel/hostel I stayed in. The were no showers and the water in the taps was brown. There was no kitchen and no keys for the rooms. The pool was spectacular, the only redeeming feature of the hotel. Unfortunately there was a big concrete wall to block the stunning views. Go to this hotel from the movie 'The Shining' at your own risk.

A great place with happy and friendly staff and some amazing food that they obviously choose carefully. The food selection is a little limited but it's perfect as it is. Sometimes it's a little slow because only a couple of people work there at any one time they make up for it with smiles.

I really liked this place but I was confused about why there was a price for one spot and then a separate price for each person on the spot. Has anyone ever stayed overnight without renting a spot? Anyway there's no grass there so plan accordingly and there's running drinkable water for free so don't buy any.

Extremely good food with some great service. What more could I ask for?
