Promoting a font rather than paying 3 Euros for it sounds good to me, so here it is :) http://bit.ly/GOIuc6

Couldn't agree more with piece by Vlad Savov. Smart TVs are mostly still laggy and their unintuitive UIs and features date much faster than the panel itself. It make far more sense to have a quality dumb TV and keep all sources separate.

WTF: Google sells out of Wednesday's Nexus 6 units near-instantly

Post by +Andrew Grush 
Google has already apparently sold out of the Nexus 6 units it promised to stock this Wednesday. We have to wonder, what's going on Google? Why the hangups with stock?

Can't help but be a little disappointed to hear that the consumer release of the #OculusRift is still a long way off, however I'm glad they are taking the time to get it right.

"We're all hungry for it to happen," Iribe said. "We're getting very close. It's months, not years away, but many months."
The consumer version of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset is where it's been since at least 2013: "months, not years" away. According to The Next Web, Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe told a crowd at...

This is potentially epic or tragic news. With Ridley Scott producing them either scenario is possible! However I'm a big fan of the books and I've been waiting for another Arthur C. Clarke film for years so I'll remain cautiously optimistic (please don't f##k it up Ridley!).
A sequel miniseries to Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey is in the works, and Ridley Scott is on board as executive producer. The new series, 3001: The Final Odyssey, will be based on classic...

Google Play Australia has finally been updated with #Nexus6  prices. There's quite the 'Australia tax' too. $869 for the 32GB model and $929 for the 64GB.

Still no release date (says "coming soon"). One good thing is that we will be getting the same 'unlimited music' offer on Google Play as the US.

I've decided to get a #Nexus6 , if Google would hurry up and launch preorders via the Australian Google Play Store that is! Given the wait times listed for the US, I think we'll be lucky to see it before Christmas :(

Interesting. Hope that's true as I'll rush out to buy one any way I can. Shame we don't have any dates or even an Australian price yet.

Top-notch coffee, amazing milkshakes, great range of food and a relaxed atmosphere make Dome a real pleasure to visit. I love the food, staff and the booth seating. Dome strive to be a cut above the rest and I think they succeed admirably. A great place to take your tablet or laptop thanks to free WiFi and powerpoints.
