"I've played Evolve; it feels really great and seems like it'll be a lot of fun to play with friends. It also could be buggy as hell or even broken when it comes out this February. We have no idea."

Working in production, I can't imagine how an industry can get to this stage where the norm is for a product to be broken on release. The gaming industry needs to clean up it's act. This is not acceptable and consumers should not accept this or put up with it.

Kudos to +Jason Schreier​
Pre-ordering video games is, in general, a Very Bad Idea, as we've learned from the likes of SimCity, Battlefield 4, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Assassin's Creed Unity, Aliens: Colonial Marines, and many many more. So these days, video game publishers have to get a little more creative when it comes to getting you to blindly buy their games.

I had to call +Singapore Airlines the other day to reschedule a ticket.  It took 45 minutes, speaking to two people, being put on hold 5 times, and several times requiring the person to repeat themselves due to the poor connections on +Singapore Airlines side.  This was after three scheduled call backs that weren't placed at the right time.

Compare this to calling +Google Australia to get a power adaptor fixed.  The whole device was going to be replaced, and organised in less than 10 minutes.

Conclusion: +Singapore Airlines should invest in their call centre infrastructure or get a new contractor with better equipment and empower their employees to handle problems more efficiently.

NOTE:  In both cases the service by the individuals were good, but I would give it to Google due to the apparent knowledge of the staff of their service and the support on solving issues.

If you are struggling with work, writing or anything.  Read this piece it may help you turn it around.  These points from the article are going on my wall above my PC.

* Connect two people
* Write every day
* Share something
* The 100 Day Rule (not sure how to use this yet but will keep it in mind)
* Three emails (does this work as a double up on "Write every day")
* Take yourself on a date (My youngest might be getting to the park more often ;)

Just putting up some ads for my Movie Posters I collected in the 90's.  Got a little hopeful, my "The Crow" poster if original would be worth 100 AUD+, "The Matrix" would be worth 500 AUD+.  Unfortunately they are both reprints.

Looks like third party NFC developers may be out in the cold with the potential NFC Enabled iPhone release.  NFC Times is saying no Tag Reading, which to me pretty much means only 1st Party Apps at launch.  But it's only speculation until anything is officially announced.

I linked to a post recently about changes in the Australian payment market, from this article we are seeing that the RBA is getting buy in from many of the major players which is an essential part of any new initiative.  One opportunity not taken yet is that there are no "new payment" systems being represented here, accept PayPal which still works within the current system.

And this is why Australia should stay a part of the Commonweatlh, the Queen is awesome.
Mashable
Given that we know the Queen enjoys a good photobomb, we can now add "trolling" to her list of royal hobbies.

Hey Joolz.  The queen is pretty awesome all around.  Not so sure about Prince Phil though ;)

Currently looking at design, and user experience is something that intrigues me.  This still indevelopment product, Flow, has some great ideas.  They say that there are better interface devices from the mouse and keyboard, it will be interesting to see how this does, compared to other products such as LEAP Motion.
Flow is a programmable, wireless controller for your computer and connected devices.

I have been looking at Trampolines for my kids, and the Vuly Thunder seems to be the ultimate in trampolines (also one of the most expensive). But this video is great marketing. I love the end of this as well. So Aussie.

For developers looking to create clean user experiences should consider the NFC Handover whitepaper.  What this means is that devices with NFC can touch an NFC point and then be securely connected to other technologies for faster and more mobile data transfer.  For example, touching an NFC phone to stream music to a Bluetooth speaker, or touch an NFC tag in a cafe to securely connect to the WiFi network with out the need of entering passwords.

Unfortunately, this type of function is yet to be allowed in the iPhone 6, but it is a matter of updating the iOS in the future from Apple so expect it next year or so.

If you haven't listened to the Journey soundtrack from composer +Austin Wintory then please take the time and play it below.  Now if you haven't played the game from +Jenova Chen's ThatGameCompany, then do yourself a favor and get into it any way you can on +PlayStation 3 (expected to be rereleased on PS4 as well).  One of the most moving experiences in entertainment I have ever had (out of books, songs, movies and games).

A lover of games and it's industry, passionate about NFC, would walk until my legs are stumps for my family
Bragging rights
Still surviving the worst nuclear disaster in the world. A beautiful healthy son, lovely wife, wonderful family, survived moving internationally, climbed Fuji twice, once during a typhoon, and my first hike was 10 days at about 3000 metres.
Ordinary food and infestation problem. We went for dinner here during the week, had Mongolian beef, sambal prawns and a rice and noodle dish. The prawns smelt, even through the sambal. The Mongolian beef was nothing special either. The menu in general is fairly generic, with nothing that sets itself apart as Malaysian. Also there was an infestation of small cockroaches behind the picture above our table. Not planning to go back.

Short and Sweet: food is okay, staff are good, decor is average, 30 AUD per person including drinks. Come if you have eaten Australian Japanese food before and like it. Having moved from Tokyo (11 years) to Melbourne and this being our first sushi/sashimi/Japanese restaurant it did not meet my lowered expectations of Australian Japanese food. The rice was too sweet in many of the dishes, the karage (fried chicken) was over cooked, and the sashimi was a bit smelly but fine. The last point was probably due to it being the third day of a long weekend. Rule of thumb, never go to a sushi/sashimi restaurant on the day the markets are closed. The food though was okay, not bad and not good, the decor is lacking in personality and feels to open, the introduction of booths would add a lot to the feel of the restaurant. The staff were pleasant and although not Japanese some were confident in communicating in Japanese.

Went to Fish and Chips: classic and simole menu. My wife loved the Fish Burger as was relatively light but well cooked. Would recommend personally the Cerberus burger. The chips are a bit soggy, and if you order the Sausage and Chips, dont bother with regular chips.

The pizzas here are really nice. went with the family before a soccer game at Rectangle Stadium and the place was packed. Sat inside which was fairly hot and no noticeable AC. food was good and took about 20 minutes from ordering at the bar to it arriving. would recommend booking on busy nights. this is very much a bar more than a restaurant so would not recommend young children to go here.

Nice gelatti, a bit lacking in selection This is a well priced Ice Cream shop and would recommend especially on the way back fron the beach. Their chocolate ice cream is awesome.

Came here after a busy day, the waitress was lovely and friendly (at least one was), the food was alright, we had spaghetti bolognese and calamari. The spaghetti was a little too salty and the calamari was nicely battered but didn't taste fresh. for 2 adults and 2 kids was about 70AUD. I would go again but ask for less salt. 21/01/2015
