A stunning new add on for Chrome - Project Naptha lets you copy, edit and erase text in any image!
What would you say if we told you that it's possible to copy, translate, edit and even erase the text inside any image you find on the internet? Well,

I've been an iPhone user since 1st gen and I've been completely happy with each one. My current is an iPhone 4 and it's been a great mobile. However, I'm now in need of a new phone and I've decided to go Android.

I'm looking at a Nexus 5. What are the pros and cons?

If Android then Nexus. Avoids all the nonsense added otherwise.

What next after teaching? #afterteaching  

This is a question that I consider from time to time. I've been teaching since 1996 and since then I have 'almost' left the profession on three occasions. I've may have been tempted out of the profession but always found myself jumping back into it. I'm hardwired into teaching.
So to those of you that were once educators, what are you doing now? Does your new profession connect you to education or have does it completely remove you from it?

What next after teaching?

This is an excellent tip!
 
I'm a huge fan of using Image Capture to get huge videos off my fieldwork iPads in batches. Way easier than other solutions I've tried! 
Connect your iOS device to your laptop with its USB charging cord. Open up Image Capture (Applications > Image Capture.app) instead. Click Import All. DONE.

A superb Indian restaurant with very good service service - on very busy nights they can be caught out but it shows just how popular this place is even mid week. The Thursday night deal is excellent value for money.

The best restaurant in Derry - fact. If you want top quality food cooked by one of the best chefs in Ireland then look no further than Browns. It is stunning. Prices range from reasonable for set a menu to slightly more expensive for a la carte. Do not be put off by other reviews that complain about the price or decor.
