Be on the lookout for limited edition Android KitKat bars coming soon to a candy aisle near you. For a lucky few, your KitKat bar might contain a winning ticket for a new Nexus 7 tablet or Google Play credits. Check it out

"Our walk along the Wales coast got me thinking about how we build our landscapes around various cultures. In the United States, the car culture dominates. Of course we have miles of hiking trails in our national parks, but we don’t have walks connecting towns and cities. Instead, we engineer marvelous highway systems that twist and wind along breathtaking vistas. Think of gorgeous Route 1 along the coast of Northern California, or the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway in the southeast — or for that matter, the West Side Highway in Manhattan, hogging the view of the mighty Hudson. If I wanted to walk from my coastal Rhode Island town to, say, the charming village of Padanaram, Mass., a mere 15 miles away, I would have to stick to asphalt — without even the safety of sidewalks.
"But in Britain, there is a disposition toward walking. The land is crisscrossed with trails that connect villages, and every day, no matter what the weather, people young and old are out walking. In Wales, the needs of landowners and farmers — for privacy, or for keeping animals penned in — have been balanced against the need for citizens to tromp through private property."
Food for thought.
