Yay for Google Photos.. but seriously, how do I stop the backups once they've started?

+Richard Bateman the feature is so new that the answers aren't out there yet. Before the Photos update, the 'Back up all' button (in the screenshot) switches to 'Cancel uploads' (or something) once backups have started. Now it doesn't change.

Powerwall: Tesla Home Battery

Just as smartphones leapfrogged landlines in many remote places, that's how I imagine the Powerwall & Powerpack in combination with solar tiles/slates will, in due time, replace the petrol-based generators that are currently used.

Stepped into an +EE​​ store today and felt the severe effects of the reality distortion fields as imposed by Yours Truly.

Dude started off slowly trying to sell me on a Nokia (Windows) phone which I kindly declined but we wasted no time jumping to why Apple are the true innovators while Samsung (and in extension, Android) copy. His blindness was on par with that of Tim Cook himself.

Thankfully a real (i.e. average old lady) customer walked in which was my excuse to walk out.

Thanks Mr Jobs.

Tell me about it +Melanie Denyer
We do plan our shows upto a year in advance.
I'm taking a year out from the theatre group after this show so I can try and get to an anomoly sometime in the near future.

Tesla Energy: Powerwall & Powerpack

Just echoing my thoughts as I haven't seen this news shared here yet. Please hit up the source for more.

These devices are already sold out through till mid-2016!

Coal and gas are damaging to the ecosystem both during extraction and in use. I cite mountaintop removal and fracking damage to groundwater as examples. Further, these are finite resources. Wind, hydro and solar never run out.

Simulating Photosynthesis

Such artificial water-splitting devices, built with inorganic crystals and acids, electrical wires winding away like tentacles, may offer no resemblance to the flexible green organics of plant photosynthesis. But the chemistry at the core is the same, and we are just now beginning to match the elegance of Nature's million-year-old machinery.

Eyes on Environment: The Search for Artificial Photosynthesis

● As efficient as Natural Selection?
"Natural selection is not a master engineer, but a tinkerer. It doesn't produce the absolute perfection achievable by a designer starting from scratch, but merely the best it can do with what it has to work with."

- Jerry Coyne

What can we learn from Nature's expertise in refinement? What if we developed technologies that mimicked the best machinery developed from eons of evolution? Photosynthesis, the ubiquitous process that converts solar energy to usable chemical fuel that serves as the foundation for all life on Earth, is a prime example. As fossil fuels dwindle, scientists hope to replicate plant photosynthesis using human-made materials to store light as chemical energy in hydrogen, which has three times the energy density of gasoline. Finding a cheap method to do this could provide clean hydrogen fuel as the basis for a future, fossil-fuel-free economy. So far, attempts have succeeded in reproducing the basic process but have had difficulties keeping devices stable for long periods of time. Now, a recent study may have found a solution, bringing artificial photosynthesis closer to a practical reality.

The technique requires the use of a silicon semiconductor coated with Nickel-Oxide as a protective layer. Such artificial water-splitting devices, built with inorganic crystals and acids, electrical wires winding away like tentacles, may offer no resemblance to the flexible green organics of plant photosynthesis. But the chemistry at the core is the same, and we are just now beginning to match the elegance of Nature's million-year-old machinery.

Watching this young man work his magic is exactly why I'm drawn to Lighting/Sound Engineering, and the tech behind it.

It's about doing what you do simply because you love it, and becoming the best at it. Pure inspiration.

Keep at it +Marques Brownlee.
 
Yes, this year was my first #MWC ! Hope you guys enjoyed the videos from Barcelona.

Here's a little behind-the-scenes look at covering one of the press events, by +The Verge. Enjoy!

Here's the One M9 video that came out of it: http://youtu.be/QXF3tUfvuLU?list=UUBJycsmduvYEL83R_U4JriQ

PS - Yes, that ending actually happened.

Last day lighting Mathew Dickinson Productions performance of 'What a knees-up', a comedy & music revue revue for all the family, in support of Parkinson's UK.

Moving LEDs are fun. That is all.​

Amazing theatre to watch a performance. Even more amazing to be involved in one here.

Not particularly welcoming and there can be a bit of a wait before you finally get a table. The meal was served with something or another missing. Free salads & re-fillable drinks (limited choice) may be a plus, but the atmosphere wasn't well kept - it could get quite chilly regardless of where your table is situated. I'd recommend for a friendly/family get-together but nothing more than that.
