After two months of using OSX intensively, and trying to be objective about it, I say it ain't bad. But damn I'm glad to be back on Windows.

For me OSX is a case of greatly improved from last time I used it a lot (like 3 or so years) but still find myself gravitating to my ChromeOS devices.

And no dirty feeling, as I don't buy into fanboism

I wrote a thing about autonomous cars and how I’m totally ready to (mostly) quit driving forevs.
Here’s a perspective on the autonomous car that you may not have heard before: we fiercely independent motorists, we’re all horse riders, shaking our fists at the plague of stinky, dangerous machines coming to take over the world...

Hmm, the Chrome extension doesn't appear to be sending messages, despite receiving them just fine. It just says "sending..." for a minute or so, and then the message disappears instead of sending. I've checked my phone and the message has definitely not made it across. 

Chrome 43.0.2357.134, OSX.

Now this is a sweet update. 
Pushbullet, the force that binds your devices together, has gotten a huge update today. Now, you can chat with friends (or send messages to yourself) when you push a file. It’s also easier to send multiple files, and the Windows app has even added Facebook-style chat heads.

I got just one of those, a week or two ago... Hasn't happened since, thankfully.

I still prefer this - far and away - over these ever-longer unskippable ads that are becoming all too common.

That moment when you compose a longass SMS via the Windows desktop Pushbullet app and it sez "sending" for ages, and then doesn't actually send, and you lose the whole thing. Love it. :(

Jeez I hope I can afford the Model 3. A Model S is definitely out of the question, but next year's Model 3 might be achievable... in a few years... somehow. Maybe. Y'know. Maybe.
A year after its founder Elon Musk was named the business world’s number-one “disrupter” by Vanity Fair magazine, American upstart Tesla Motors has been decalred the world’s most innovative company...

+Liam Marcon They want it to compete with the 3 Series, so minimum $60k definitely.

So, Google is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of a new company called Alphabet, to be found at http://abc.xyz. Interesting.

Absolutely loving the new enhanced SMS chat on desktop, I've been waiting for this for so long. Pushbullet is probably the only app I've ever designed a mockup of a feature for, that's how desperate I was for it, haha. 

Feedback: scrolling to the bottom of the conversation list to initiate a brand-new message is a bit of a pain, or am I missing something obvious?

Being able to attach an image or an emoji would be hugely welcomed! 

There's a little bit of lag in loading discussions and sending messages, compared to the MightyText service I've previously been using, but I'm quite certain this is an 'early days' thing that will be resolved. 

Apart from those minor things, it's just amazing. Thanks guys!

Ditto all above (but the delay I see in the third item is never more than 1/2 second for me so no real issue there).

I'd really to be able to disable +1 notifications in the browser. Is that doable, +Google? Because it's a level of validation I don't require in my life... 

Let me know when people have commented, for sure, but leave it at that. Y'know?

Ringwood store is gone. Building knocked down for the coming Eastland renovations.

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.
