I think that if I had the chance I'd do exactly the same as +Ben Discoe - park my van on campus and live where I work. Here's A bit of first person insight into the big G. 
Ben Discoe lived at Google HQ for 13 months, in better conditions than most hotels. Here's his story.

You can be bionic! Well almost. There’s almost no bit of the human body we can’t 3D print or grow in a tube. And by “we” - we actually mean scientific boffins.

  #freshersweek   #freshers   #freshers2014  

There are two freshers weeks. The official week’s activities laid on by your university and student union are designed to ease you into academic life, with a series of events, introductory presentations and the virtual paperwork of registration.

Then there’s the “freshers week” that happens outside the university – explicitly designed to part you from your loan...

Here's how to survive it...

There will definitely be a DVD of the sell-out Kate Bush show "Before the Dawn" - and I couldn't be happier!
Facebook fan page Kate Bush News has evidence that the ethereal singer songwriter's London show will be filmed for a DVD release.

Astonishing version of the "man in the middle" attack with cell phone interception. If 17 have been found, you can guarantee there are many more.
 
Seventeen fake cellphone towers were discovered across the U.S. last week. Owned by mysterious entities, they look like Verizon or AT&T towers etc, but sift and steal messages, texts… anything they want. Interceptor use in the U.S. is much higher than people had anticipated. One of our customers took a road trip from Florida to North Carolina and he found eight different interceptors on that trip.

I have a feeling that I'll hate this in two week's time - but right now it's awesome. The Chuckle Brothers as you've never seen them before.

Brits take their tea making VERY seriously.
This post is full of tips from tea experts, on making your favourite brew better. Heston Blumenthal and others tell us how to make the perfect cup of tea.

PC vs Mac. OS X vs Windows. I went there...

Mac vs PC; It’s the battle that never ends. Even heavyweight philosopher Umberto Eco weighed in on the argument at one time in a seminal essay on the subject, comparing the two operating systems to religious movements. 
 
I compared Yosemite head-to-head with Windows 8, the current version of Microsoft Windows for the PC. Which leads to salvation and which encloses the user in the loneliness of his inner torment?


#mac   #osxyosemite   #yosemite   #osx   #windows   #windows9   #windows8   #pc  
Which is better? Yosemite or Windows? There’s only one way to find out and that’s to analyze the two side by side... Sorry, we meant, FIGHT!

YouTube's top, channel PewDiePie earned $4 million last year. It's just one guy, playing video games and shooting the breeze over the top of them.

Finally, welcome to the age of the independent millionaire maker, where your parent's basement is the post-industrial weaver's cottage.

#YouTube #PewDiePie
Want to be the next YouTube millionaire? You’ll need talent and you may even need a bit of luck, but the main thing you’ll need are videos - lots of them.

A moment where the mask drops and Elizabeth Jones a UKIP candidate - from Britain's lunatic right - shows their true colours. Literally, incapable of understanding the policy points being made by Trade Unionist Helen Pattison, she begins screaming. Even when she regains composure she sounds completely insane... The fireworks start from 11.40 onwards.

"Do you think you can strike Eric out?" 

Eric laughs as though that would be impossible. But 13 year old Mo'ne Davis pitched the first shutout in Little League history. She throws the ball at 70 miles an hour. She's on the cover of this month's Sports Illustrated. Eric Bolling was invalided out of baseball after a brief career in the rookie leagues and is now a 51 year old, overweight TV presenter. I know who my money's on.
