Remember 3 years ago when you hit 5Mbps download on mobile data and you celebrated with a social media post?

Hmm... Not sure I agree with Assange. Especially if this includes the personal details of the employees...

He's helping North Korea, who stole the files because of Sony's movie ridiculing their justly ridiculed leader.

If you ever happen to lose your (Android) phone, just ask Google where it is ;P

Well, I don't leave my mobile data on when I'm out and about. It's the biggest battery drainer after the screen.

Right! Not sure I agree with the presumption Google make that cards should be swipable though. I think it's better to think of them as sort of self contained objects instead? 

(but maybe swiping "cards" in an RSS app would be good functionality? Swipe to mark as read save for later, etc?)

Looks like WhatsApp is joining the Material party too...!

I don't like cases on phones. But I think I'm disgusted at the thought of cases on watches!

Its a bit silly. No one ever needed a case for a real watch. Sometimes I feel I need a case for my phone because of the price of it, but then I have watches that cost many times the price of my phone and never would consider it. Such a strange concept.

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.

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 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.
