This is huge! Devs can finally create promotional codes for paid apps and IAPs.

A few caveats:
- a dev can create up to 500 codes per quarter (for comparison, iOS devs can create up to 100 codes, but per release, which I think is better)
- promo codes expire after up to a year. Here's where it's ambiguous right now, and we've requested clarification from Google. Does it mean promo codes are valid for a year but if you redeem, they'll apply forever, or does it mean a code will only give you a max 1 year license? I hope the former.

Regardless, this is going to make review versions of apps/games much easier. And if it works forever, then for giveaways too. Nobody wants to win a giveaway license that's only valid for year, that would suck.

Edit: +Ian Lake clarified that once redeemed, the licenses don't expire! Yay! https://plus.google.com/u/0/+IanLake/posts/ebTKFsT5Zqe

Google I/O 2016 dates announced! And it's no longer in SF but rather in Mountain View, closer to Google's campus.

But wait... Shoreline Amphitheatre is an outdoor venue... http://www.theshorelineamphitheatre.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/shoreline-amphitheatre-outside.jpg

Wat?

As late night impulse purchases go this was a good one! Get the entire Red Dwarf series so far (including some specials) for under £8... Wicked deal.

WTF is this about?! The US officials change their mind just before take off and won't refund £9000 in flights. I'd be absolutely livid!

Red Dwarf XI in In The Can
Friday night saw the recording of the final episode of Red Dwarf XI. I am quietly confident that this new series takes the Red Dwarf phenomenon to the next level.
Not only does it look amazing, the scripts are brilliant, complex and incredibly imaginative.
We have all worked very hard, we are all knackered and we now have a month off before we start again.
Series XII starts shooting mid January. Both series will be broadcast in the UK on Dave sometime in 2016-17. Don't know dates yet
Picture is from long ago, under very strict instructions not to post pics from new series

Happy Christmas and a peaceful 2016
