Sounds interesting, something that may sway me from the Mate 7, maybe.... I'll be watching and waiting....
Here it is folks. The OnePlus 3 just leaked in a glorious press render, courtesy of Evan Blass.The high resolution image reveals an attractive metallic device that takes design cues from competitors like the HTC One and Huawei Mate series.According to Evan Blass, the metallic unibody isn’t the only major upgrade the OnePlus 3 is receiving. While the OnePlus One and the OnePlus 2 featured IPS LCD panels, the OnePlus 3 is moving on to AMOLED, the t...

This is what I'm talking about, Jupiter up close :)
 
Jupiter, 15 May 2016.

This is my first real attempt at Jupiter using my planetary camera. I had done some attempts in the past with my DSLR, but I'd never been that satisfied with the results.

Also, now that I'm using FireCapture to get the data, it's easier to get better results.

I made extra effort for Jupiter tonight as I wanted to get the Great Red Spot, and I new it would be visible tonight after searching online for the times.

Overall, I'm happy enough with this result. I'm not sure how to rate the seeing. I could just see the red spot visually, but when I was looking at the moon beforehand, there was a moderate amount of turbulence.

One week with the latest stable EMUI 4.0/Android 6.0 and nothing to complain about at all.

Better battery life (by a noticeable margin), smoother transitions and some nice Marshmallow/EMUI feature integrations

Huewai Mate 7 still hanging in there for some time to come as far as I'm concerned 😀

Huewai still making headway with their flagship phones, and I'm still using the Mate 7 with their own EMUI 4 running Marshmallow and not looking to change anytime soon :)
I finished writing my review of the Huawei P9 on Friday. Today’s Tuesday, I have a Galaxy S7 and two iPhones in my immediate vicinity, and I’m still using the Huawei P9. Have I taken leave of my...

I've recently twice seen the file encryption ransomware in action, but yet to encounter the MBR trick!
All of them are just really obnoxious pieces of code :(

The subtitle "Who needs Android", well those that want this functionality and these features and apps out of the box without having to install said apps mentioned and tweak the phone to make it work. Pretty simple really, so why buy an iPhone to use all the default Android/Google apps when you don't need to?

Stupid article really......
I downloaded the new Gboard for iOS today, and have been really enjoying it so far. Along with wondering about what Google will tell advertisers now that they can read every single thing I type, I...

Interested in IT gadgets and tech in general...doing the life and family thing too ;-)
Introduction
Where am I?
Currently living in Narooma with my wife and three children.
What do I do?
I work in the Tourism and IT industries. We (my wife and I) are the onsite managers of some holiday apartments on the South Coast of NSW. I also run my own small IT consultancy business where I work with local (and sometimes not so local) small businesses and organisations to streamline their use of technology. 

I have always had a passion for Open Source software and open communication to aid in business development which is where working with small businesses can really benefit their bottom line. I just really enjoy tinkering with technology!

The whole club was cleanand well maintained. This is a big club with a large upstairs conference/entertaining room. All the staff were wonderful and the food very nice. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking to host a function or just go out to dinner with or without the kids. Great place.

A great Irish pub on one of the main streets. Great service and beer at the perfect temperature, not too warm and not chilled to be flavourless.

This has to be one of the best finds of the trip! It is right in the heart of the action, with all the "local" places right out side the front door, you get the feel of the true, non tourist Rome as soon as you step out the door. The room was immaculate, clean and well presented with all the mod cons, free Wifi included. Breakfast was very nice and the staff very helpful. Definitely recommend this and would stay again in a heartbeat!

Service by office and ground staff was exceptional and the cleanliness of amenities was too. Our in-laws had an ensuite van site which accomodated their large dual axle van with room to spare. The cabin we stayed in appeared practically brand new and was spotless. Couldnt give a higher recommendation for a caravan park. We will be back!
