Loving the attention to detail of the backplate, the spirit level is a really nice touch. Can't wait to get +Nest (UK) working.

Yes, they had to patch them as the wave sensing feature to silence them sometimes silenced them when you'd just walked past apparently. It was an OTA update though so I don't know why they didn't keep selling them anyway and just patch them before dispatch. They are supposed to be fixed now but still not back on sale yet.

Google Buys Word Lens Instant Translation App

According to an announcement last week, Google has purchased Quest Visual the company that made Word Lens ( wordlens.com ), an amazing instant translation app & for a limited time has made it free to download from the Google Play store.

What's cool is it also works with Google Glass.



Quest Visual is joining Google!

By joining Google, we can incorporate Quest Visual's technology into Google Translate's broad language coverage and translation capabilities in the future.



Google Acquires Quest Visual and its (Awesome) Word Lens Translating App  from PCmag

Google has acquired Quest Visual for an undisclosed amount. In doing so, the company has picked up a means for augmenting its translation capabilities in Android and Google Glass, in addition to bolstering its own Google Translate service with Quest Visual's eye-catching technology.   goo.gl/94Wjo3

+Google+ Why cant I have the personalised URL: http://plus.google.com/+sambartle  - you made me pick http://plus.google.com/+SamBartleUK despite + sambartle having NO ONE USING IT. Maybe this is why no one uses plus.

Although frustrating, and I totally agree that you should be allowed it, I reckon the reason more people don't use G+ is because most people don't like, or can't be arsed with "change" and despite many people wanting to be "unique", most are unwilling to be different from the crowd. So with social risk as well as in terms of effort, people are happy to play the safe bet and stay put instead of investing in something new.

A great sandwich shop. Huge selection of items and all sandwiches made to order so you can customise everything. Good selection of drinks and a unique decor make it a great place to stop off. Food was excellent as well. Only slight negative is the price, there's a wetherspoons next door where you can get a burger and drink for the same price as a sandwich and drink.

We ate here after trying to get into a restaurant just 2 doors down which was packed full, Tazzo was a bigger place and empty except for one family in the back. Never usually a good sign. (At least not in the UK where we're from) The menu was huge and had a good selection so we gave it a try. Our host Tim was very friendly and happy to chat and make recommendations, although I'm not sure if the tips were actually to guide us to items that they had in stock or wanted to make as some things they did seem to want you to steer clear of. The food however was excellent, service was very fast, the place was clean if a little dark, and the process reasonable. The deserts were also very good with large portions. Overall a very good experience. Thanks Tim.

Always a quick delivery service from Sun Yee. My only criticism is that they always overcook the Sweet and Sour Battered Chicken Balls.

An excellent tour, we recently took a tour of Atlanta with Chris from ATL Cruzers, on one of their electric cars. The groups are small as you can only fit 5 people per car so being in a group of 4 we had the car to ourselves meaning you get a personal tour guide, the tour covers many locations spread across the city, and is excellent for photographs as you travel slower than a bus would. You are also not shooting through glass as the car is open sided. Chris was excellent, and despite not being born locally had excellent knowledge of the whole area. We visited on a football game weekend, as well as a local parade and our guide provided great info on both.. The tour didn't feel scripted it was all delivered specific to the current events and any questions or interests we had. Chris was also an excellent source of knowledge on food and the wider USA as we mentioned we were doing a road trip round some other locations, many of which he could make great recommendations about. At the end of the tour he spent some time in the office with us drawing up a map of the places he recommended during the tour or we had asked about and offered his card to contact him for any general questions during our stay. The tour would have been great anyways but Chris did make it special. I'd highly recommend this for UK visitors like us.

Great range and service. The only slight negative are the prices are a bit high but its probably worth it for the service and knowledge. Worth noting the location on Google maps is actually wrong.. It's not where maps says it is.
