Not even a hint of corruption here, eh?

No wonder the NHS finances are a problem.

Multiple regulators have begun to take an interest in broadband quality metrics. These efforts are a strong hint that the regulatory approaches proposed by “net neutrality” campaigners are insufficient. That is because “neutrality” is too weak to give broadband buyers the service quality protection that they need.Based on my conversations with Dr Neil Davies of Predictable Network Solutions Ltd, I present here the eight reasons why “neutrality” c...

I think this is very interesting. It's unfortunate that we have to fight to keep these secret agreements from coming to fruitition. It's also sad that some people will play the dirty games that we do. Even though I am a supporter I would be afraid to put my phone # on this site.

A poll if anyone is interested.

Google+ is, at the time of writing, still a thing, but its future is far from assured. Unless there's a huge wave of interest, Google+ may not be long for this world. Or perhaps I'm just being pessimistic, and actually people are still interested in Google's social network. There's only one way to find out……

I'm beginning to see G+ as a great filter, exposing published crazy news about nuclear power revivals, 540 million active G+ users, and driverless cars on the streets of Huddersfield.

So Greenpeace are banned from placing an advert stating the truth (that most experts agree that fracking won't reduce energy bills) because it's an inconvenient truth for the Government (or, rather, it's inconvenient for the ministers who happen to be funded by, or plan to get highly-paid "consulting" jobs in the oil and gas industry).
Greenpeace UK has dismissed as ‘baseless, biased, and bonkers’ a decision by the advertising watchdog to ban an anti-fracking ad on the basis that David Cameron would disagree with it.

Maybe we don't need to hit that 80% electric cars target?

The new G+ Collections looks like an interesting approach to curating content aimed at different audiences.

However, what it may mean is that more posts will be less visible than before.

Whilst this is A Good Thing (TM) for users, the industry echo chamber that likes to pretend to be "Journalists" will use it as another piece of evidence in their idiotic "Ghost town" narrative.

Heh. No worries +M Sinclair Stevens​​. I don't necessarily want to unsubscribe from their collections.
As an eg.. The person who I'm thinking of is my Facebook (or how I imagine FB to be) kind of feed. Lots of random and sometimes interesting reshares. But they post about 20 times a day. They've started to create some arty Gif collections, I actually like the collections. But now those collections have taken priority over their normal posts. The only way that could be fixed would be if they categorised all their posts into collections that I could pick and choose.

Something is seriously messed up when teachers, who aren't that well paid themselves, are using their own money to provide basic stuff for their pupils.

Given how (in)accurate most people are reporting it to be, it might as well be.

A lovely little pub. Reasonable beer, friendly staff, and real fires on colder days, but the food and atmosphere isn't as good as it was a few years ago.

I know this is just a KFC but we have just had awesome service from Monia.

Easily the best coffee in Reading and, perhaps, in the area. Nowhere else have I seen staff that take such care over the making of a coffee, and the results are amazing. They also make a lot of their own food, including fantastic brownies, blondies (made with white chocolate) and utterly amazing granola bars.

We were alerted to this little gem of a tavern by another guest in the hotel we were staying in. It's slightly shabby, but very atmospheric decor and aspect (it's in a basement, down a narrow set of stairs between two shops) may seem a little intimidating, but the welcome was warm and genuine. They serve excellent local beers and basic, but high-quality local food and, of course, absinthe. The clientèle are a mixture of what appear to be regular locals and travellers and visitors, but the place doesn't have an ounce of pretension about it. Highly recommended!

Great and constantly updating range of real ales which normally include some local ones. Updated Dec 2013: Back again for a family meal. The Castle never disappoints. Great food, fantastic beer and attentive staff. This place still deserves the 5 stars originally awarded.

Average food at fairly standard prices for this sort of fare, but the service was pretty dreadful with the staff ignoring us at one point and we had to go and ask for the menu. The "unlimited" fries went inedibly hard as they cooled down and it was hard to imagine the circumstance where anyone would actually eat a full dishful yet alone ask for more. Decor was OK but everyone in our party felt the theming was very odd, being a mixture between American Rock culture and Middle Eastern.

In most ways this is a typical Starbucks. What makes this stand out from the crowd and makes me choose this branch over any of the other coffee shops in Chippenham is the staff. A more friendly, honestly cheerful, and helpful bunch you will be hard pushed to find anywhere else. These guys and girls knew my name 2yrs ago, we'll before the latest "tell us your name" policy was introduced. Visiting this branch isn't just about getting a coffee and a muffin; its more like catching up with old friends.
