Ever wondered how restrictive Chinese internet censorship really is? Wonder no longer.
Every day since Nov. 17, 2014, ProPublica has been testing whether the homepages of 18 international news organizations are accessible to browsers inside China. Here are the results.

I know that the topic of battery life's a thorny one, but for the life of me I can't get my N6 below 70% at the end of the working day.

Given the discussion here, I know that's exceptional. And I admit that I've had to work at tweaking the settings to get there.

If anyone's interested, here's the story of my four or five weeks with a 32GB blue N6...

Editorial Director, Haymarket Consumer Media
Introduction
By day, I'm Editorial Director at Haymarket Consumer Media. By night, I'm Editorial Director of HCM, only 12 miles away from the place I sit in during the day.

We're one of the world's best specialist media and information companies (and we've grown at a fair pace around the globe - we have nicely thriving offices in New York, Sydney, Hong Kong and Mumbai, to name a few).

Dig around in my links on this page for a few examples of our wares.

Quite extraordinary - amazing architecture, beautifully-kept rooms and a great location if you want to spend a weekend exploring the city. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Great location - far enough away from the NY bustle to be an escape, close enough to be a two minute walk. Has the added benefit of an excellent restaurant in the lobby.

Clean, comfortable, and the staff were very helpful - we returned early from a trip to San Antonio, and they spent half an hour finding us another hotel locally (they needn't have bothered). One niggle: does the aircon in the hotel corridors really need to be set at -10 degrees?

OK, so it's (almost) under a freeway - but the food's great, the service is good and you can waste a morning people watching.
