+Chase Lee​ I would guess it isn't from searches, but from tracking actual physical presence in that location.

We've come a long way in understanding Pluto since its discovery by American astronomer Clyde Tombaugh in 1930. Today, thanks to our New Horizons spacecraft, the dwarf planet is cleared than ever before. http://go.nasa.gov/1Ht2uwj

Comparison of streaming music services. I could have written this extract!

(their Spotify experience seems tainted by the loss of music, it's still #1 for me)

Which do you use?

+1 for #spotify  here. Been using it for more years than I can remember - 4, 5? Premium rocks. Mostly through #Sonos, but also in car via bluetooth streaming, and whilst working via PC

So you are buying a physical object now? Not a license to the art? They just can't make up their minds. Which shows just how wrong it all really is.

Story
Tagline
Lover of technology, especially mobile...and in particular android! (Also Editor-in-chief of www.Droid-Den.com)
Introduction
Hey there! My name is Rachid Otsmane-Elhaou, I'm from the UK and currently residing in the lovely (and usually wet) Manchester (think London, but a lot cosier!).

I love tech, all forms of it! It makes the world go round, and it enriches our lives no end. At any given moment you'll probably find me scouring the internet for a scrap of information about a new device, trying out a new service or having a go at some development! The vast majority of my posts will in some way include android, so be sure to stick around if you also love the little green guy!

Generally speaking I'll be frequenting Google+ or twitter (@le3ky), or posting some of my longer thoughts and product reviews over at www.Droid-Den.com (RSS feed)

Feel free to pop me over a message on either platform, I always enjoying saying Hi and chatting tech to new friends! 

Chrome Extensions
I also have a few Chrome Extensions you might be interested in! :P


PR Contacts
If you're in the business of PR, or have a great product you want to show the world, send me a pm or drop me an email and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. I'm particularly interested in anything mobile-related.

Great place to spend a day out, the young one loved the trip to see the farm animals too.

The staff here are great, we had a few problems with our food (steak not cooked as requested), but these were quickly replaced and charge removed from the bill. Things go wrong in restaurants sometimes, it's how these situations are handled that matters. And they were handled well here. The (eventual) food was lovely too, would recommend.

Good driving range on a sunny afternoon. Bonus for the kind golf outside too! Never busy, so you can take your time with it.

Good value for money, Shame about the time limit on how long you can stay, but younger kids are usually tired after a couple hours. But they are usually flexible so will let you stay longer if it's quiet. Oh and the coffees are quite nice!

Brilliant place to come with the kids. The food and coffee is delicious. The painting area upstairs is a delight too.

Massive store. Lots of parking which never ever seems to be even a quarter full? The staff aren't too helpful though, especially you the paint department.. My questions almost seemed to pain them.
