Plug: A friend of mine helped produce this film.  Looks pretty good from the trailer and stars Harry Lloyd of Game of Thrones fame*.

They're seeking funding (KickStarter) to get the last few bits of audio and promotion together so they can take the film to SXSW.  Take a look.

* and other stuff of course.  I vaguely recall he was in Dr Who once.

I've seen a lot of people using the phrase "one of the smartest people I know" recently as a way to suggest that something apparently dumb done by such a person must make it a complex scenario.  For example, "Bob is one of the smartest people I know so if he fell for a 419 scam so would anyone else!"

Surely all this actually demonstrates is that the speaker/writer may not know very many smart people?  It's a meaningless (without context) and irritating turn of phrase.  Kill it.  Kill it with fire.

I now need to re-watch the original Superman to purge that utter pile of shite from my mind.  Man of Steel was a poorly scripted film that only seems to use the Superman branding as an excuse to skip over some character development.

Yup, no shipping notification by their "latest" date.  Fuck 'em, I'm out.  Useless to the end.   #OUYA  +OUYA 
 
"We've shipped all of the units, you just might not have an e-mail yet".  Smells of bullshit to me given they've not been able to give a straight answer about anything to do with the delivery process for the last two months. #OUYA #lostthefaith

Here's a game being Kickstarted that I believe is worth checking out.  The pre-backing videos so far have been informative, explaining and providing tech demos of the AI being developed for the game.  If they continue with that level of detail then I consider the pledge worth it for the updates alone.

A very interesting keynote.  Whereas the last few years seems to have been about consolidating a lot of the disparate apps into a platform / ecosystem, the maps bit showed an interesting insight into some rebuild.  Wonder if we'll see more.

One thing I couldn't shake was the feeling that Now will take priority as an android homescreen in its own right.  While you'll still want to launch new apps for content generation, for consumption it's turning into a one stop shop.  I can easily see how the new layout of Google+ seems to translate easily into a card model so could eventually be freed from Google+ as a necessary container.

The new intelligent tagging in Google+ also seems to solve a problem I've encountered with all social networks, not just Google+: network stagnation.  I very rarely go looking for new people to circle, unless I see them posting interesting things on the streams of people I already follow.  Giving me an easy way to explore further related content may well encourage me to spread my wings more often.  I wonder if Google have any statistics on circling rates before and after.

I was in the basement for a bit hashing out conspiracy theories around the world turning into cards!

Unfortunately I've had other plans made for me tonight so going to catch up on the vids at the weekend.  Enjoy it!

Wow.  I mean wow.  I have most of these already and love them all!  You should be getting this for Fez or FTL alone, let alone the fantastic stealth 'em up that is Mark of the Ninja.

Warning: May contain Man of Steel spoilers.

This makes the point better than I could about one of my main problems with Man of Steel.

I'm sure you can do useful stuff with at least some of those apps without root, but not sure if specific features  are root-only off the top of my head.
