Russell Brand passionately backs Labour to unseat "dangerous" Conservative Party. You did register to vote, right?

This means I… now agree with Russell Brand. (SNP in Scotland; Greens in Brighton Pavilion; Labour elsewhere—well, where they can win.) Blimey.

Mega-famous, mainstream musos invoke visions of a public sphere using words like "a town hall for creativity" and "inspiring" to describe Kanye's new acquisition Tidal - a high quality streaming service that costs twice as much to subscribe to as any other on the market, and that gives more of that money back to the extraordinarily rich people who back it. 

These people are not artists. They are not the public. They are the capitalist establishment, and they've just found a new way to make sure that more of your money is their money.

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.

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...

We spoke to people who know all about surviving freshers week and student life to get the best advice; recent graduates. They're fresher's week experts.

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.
