I'm already on unlimited data, but the infrastructure in my suburb likely won't be enough to get use out of Netflix. I'll still give it a damn fuckin good go though. Fuck you, Abbott and Murdoch.

Being a traditionalist isn't always good. ;)

Latest clip in Microsoft's series of future-imagining videos is pretty damn good. Reminds me a lot of Vodafone's 'Future Vision' interactive clip from the mid 2000s, which still blows my mind even now. http://demo.northkingdom.com/vodafonefuturevision/

Just dropped my unprotected #Nexus5 in a sink full of hot water and the thing survived. How in the hell? Still working like a charm. My hat is off to you, +LG Electronics​!

A fairly sealed phone shouldn't succumb to a splash.... Phones with hard buttons are more susceptible.

Yeah I'm thinking I'll get one. Super unimpressed by all the other smart watches.

“Icarus. The original myth had two parts. Daedalus said to his son, ‘I fashioned these wings for you. Two rules. Don’t fly too high, or the sun will melt the wax. But, more important, son, don’t fly too low. Because if you fly too low, the water and the waves will surely weigh down the wings, and you will die.’ We’ve left out the second part of the myth. We don’t say to people anymore, ‘Don’t fly too low.’ All we do from the time they are 4 years old is warn them against hubris. We have created this industrially led structure that says: How dare you.”

Pretty appealing. Smaller battery is the only point of concern for me. The iPhone6 styling along the edge is brave, hah. Also some complaints in the comments about the sealed back, but I couldn't care less about that. 
The Galaxy S6 is unlike any smartphone that Samsung has ever made. How, you ask? Let me count the ways.

+Rand Phillips yup been all ovef G+. Think a Z4 will come, maybe, but with Sonys problems i'd steer clear until the position is clarified. Plus fusing screen and digitiser is idiotic so wouldnt get my vote

I don't know much about basketball, but this Sanders fellow apparently walked away from an NBA career and copped a lot of armchair abuse for it. Here he describes where basketball fits into his life, and reminds us that we must be mindful of the parts of a person we don't see before we scream about their flaws. Struck some chords with me. /via +Karl Smith.

Why should he get credit for doing this?  He made a personal decision - he shouldn't get credit for it just because he's a rich athlete...

For some Americans not familiar with the metric system - this is the beauty of it.

Amateur cut, poser vibe, too expensive compared to Melbourne's established and well respected barbers like Dr Follicles, Electric Brain, All the King's Men.

Excellent quality dumplings right across the menu. This place has become hugely popular, but the quality remains top-notch.
