Quitting Google + until the I/O invites have finished.

Because let's face it...that's all that's going to order be in our timelines for a few days.

Never happened on any of my BA flights.

I mean...WTF?
 
Woman Arrested for Getting Drunk, Stripping, & "Solo Fun" on BA Flight

Can you join the mile high club on your own? Is this the latest advancement in IFE? All jokes aside (feel free to add your own in the comments section), a 46 year old woman traveling from Kingston, Jamaica (KIN) to London Gatwick (LGW) aboard a British Airways B777 has been arrested after she...

I just actually started using Opera. Allows you to import bookmarks from other browsers.

Couldn't use Chrome on my new XPS 13. I knew it was a battery killer on my old MacBook Pro but I got 2 hours less using it on Windows 8.

Google gotta do something with it. Chrome getting like me. Fat and hungry.
 
Joining +Alex Dobie and trying to switch from Chrome to Safari for OSX. 

Pretty sure my computer just popped up a thank-you message.

What. The. Fuck.
Nestled within Microsoft's announcements today from the WinHEC conference in China is a familiar, yet unfamiliar name: Xiaomi. Currently Xiaomi makes exclusively Android powered mobile devices, but the Chinese OEM has entered into a program with Microsoft to test Windows 10 on a very small, select group of its smartphones. "Through a new program with Xiaomi, one of the top...

Having a rant this morning. In the UK we seem to hand out knighthoods now like they're going out of fashion. All you seemingly have to do is ride a bike or design an iPhone.

And yet Lenny Henry is more deserving of an honour than either Bradley Wiggins or Jony Ive. Sure, he's a comedian. But he's a comedian that as of last night set up a charity that's raised over £1billion in the last 30 years.

These are the people we should recognise and reward. Not sports stars or people who made you empty your pockets for selfish reasons.

Lenny Henry is also one of the biggest racists allowed on TV.

There's usually a reason people privately test new apps. In MixRadio's case they've got a very good reason for it right now. I know this because I was included in the very early private trial. And I know why it's a cagey subject (though I'm not at liberty to disclose anything.)

Being a dick and sharing an app that currently requires a sign up process being authorized is nothing more than just being a dick.

But hey, you go right ahead sharing stuff that isn't yours to share.

Can't wait to get hold of a Euro version.

An afterthought, for those of us who spend too much time playing in the high-end. We come by it honestly, of course, but we've also been missing out on some rather compelling devices. But...

Looks nice.

But another year and another HTC phone that does nothing for me. Not sure I could even tell you exactly why.
 
Our HTC One M9 review is live! And not overheating! (Yes, we went there.) http://www.androidcentral.com/htc-one-m9

You'll probably see it before I will. And i'll be at the launch event!

So...place your bets.

Will I be...

a) Going to Microsoft Build in San Francisco
b) Going to Google I/O in San Francisco
c) Going to both
d) Going to neither.

Bearing in mind they're 3 weeks apart and I live in the UK. May's going to be busy as hell as it is. Is fate going to make it get ridiculous?

My counter argument: doesn't spending $1299 and up make you something of a power user?

Either that or a rich idiot with no concept of money.
 
Our Peter Cohen is fed up with power users who think they're too good for the new MacBook. http://www.imore.com/nsfw-power-users-need-shut

+Paweł Komarnicki Maybe, but are they really going to drop $1300 on one? If so, they deserve to be parted with their money.

Remember when Smartwatches were a dumb idea no-one needed?

Ah those were the days.

By no-one and dumb I'm referring to Apple bloggers, of course. Those that said Apple would do it right. Not more or less the same as everyone else.
