I enjoy being back in Australia and with the abundance of online services available both corporate and public services.  However +Department of Human Services continues to fail with this, they have major issues with their website but no notifications on any of their SNS services.

We did 1000 Steps as a family and came to +Micawber Tavern for a bite to eat afterwards.  The atmosphere was just gorgeous and so comfortable.  After 11 years away from Australia (and the UK) this was the first old fashioned pub I had been to and it was amazing.  Great food, lovely service and just a place you want to curl up in a chair, drink a few pints and hang out.

Google+ Is adding Collections a way to group posts by a common topic, check out the post below for the skinny on it.
 
Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

"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.

A bit simpler than what I expect from these clips but as always a good practical solution. Are we going to see any new and more interesting builds like the hidden doorway anytime soon.

This post is great, showing that we need to think about the information that is presented to us logically and not take it at face value.  I also believe in #GenderEquality  
 
We are strong advocates here at CONNOiSM for ‪#‎GenderEquality‬ and fair pay for fair work, with no exceptions.. And the ‪#‎tech‬ industry definitely still have a little ways to go...

BUT... this article is completely misleading and doesn't take into account that they are comparing the founders of the some of the most successful technology companies of the last 5 decades to the operational managers that these founders have hired to manage the success of the ongoing business...

Meg Whitman, Sheryl Sandberg, Marissa Mayer and co. are amazing inspirations to women looking to make their mark on the tech industry. But to compare their net worth to someone like Bill Gates, who created one of the most influential and successful organisations of all time is completely misguided...

Business Insider normally create great content, based on researched thoughts, but on this occasion completely missed the point and actually pushed the #GenderEquality in the wrong direction. 

#CelebrateTheirSuccess

Given that we know the Queen enjoys a good photobomb, we can now add "trolling" to her list of royal hobbies.

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.

This is a Pub in the 1980's sense of the word. The meals are pub counter meals from the 80's, the service is from the 80's, the style is from the 80's. There is nothing exceptional about this place if you go with the expectations of above. It is clean and sells beer and wine so what more can you ask for? In all honesty, if you have a designated driver, make the trip to Mt Gambier for a brew or two.

This is a great place for any park based activity. Great for a stroll or a family game of cricket or soccer. About 3-5 sets of two BBQ's so plenty of bbqing space. Been here about 15 times in the last 18 months for birthdays, cultural gatherings, play dates and just playing.

They do real handmade sandwiches and burgers here. The service (counter) is a bit disorganised but friendly. Go here when I am after lunch while at work. Best value for money in the area.

Chips are nice but we order hamburgers from here and the burger had been made from sausage mince. Turned us off going again. Go to the chippy closer to the station for burgers.

Decent kebabs/souvlaki but put chips in them. Flashy exterior and food is decent. Would go again but more interested in trying new places to see if there is better.
