The end of Moore's law.

It was good while it lasted :)
The chip industry is no longer going to treat Gordon Moore's law as the target to aim for.

How can a treaty overcome a law? I'm sure we'll find out.
A legal challenge against the pact is widely anticipated

G+ Questions - Desktop  - 
 
Advice sought on Circles and the interaction with your Contacts list please!

In the Contacts preview (contacts.google.com), the Settings option shows this:
Include everyone from your circles in the All contacts list. Excludes circles that you just follow. [Learn more]

The Learn More link goes to here: https://support.google.com/mail/answer/6164066

BUT... I can't see how to create or change a circle to one that I "just follow", which would allow me to exclude a number of contacts from my list.

Can anyone guide me please?  Thanks!

Samsung Galaxy S4  - 
 
Bumper recommendations

I've had my S4 since May 2013 and it's certainly been well used. Can't fault it really, apart from the chipping off of the metalic/acrylic paint used for the edges.

Can anyone recommend a bumper for the S4 that doesn't cover or restrict the sound coming from the rear speaker (unlike so many rubber cases out there...)?

Thanks!

Just who the heck reviews a petrol station anyway?! I do. And here's why: if you're going to put fuel in your car, why dump some supermarket tat in that doesn't have additives to make your engine pur sweetly? If you're going to get fuel, and you walk up to the guys behind the counter to pay, you want a smile, right? And if you want even more service, you want the option of someone filling up your tank for you, right? Well, this Shell station has it all. An assistant on the forecourt, ready to do the filling for you! Staff behind the counter who always have smiles on their faces. And fuel so good, your momma wants to tell the world about it. In fact, I'd drive 50 miles in the wrong direction to visit this place. It even has hot sausage rolls - and if you like meat, there's even a kebab van on the nearby roundabout. What else do you need? Go there. Go there now! Ok, actually it's a pretty normal joint really. But the staff are friendly, and that makes a big difference.

Friendly staff, convenient location, lots of seating and good range of products only let down by tables left too long before being cleaned. Otherwise, not bad.

Generally good. Store kept clean, lighting is good, music not annoying, temperature pleasant. Range of styles and brands is good. Only let-down was there was no-one attending the changing rooms, so I was hesitant to just "go in" and try items without permission/oversight. Other than that, no problem at all.

Despite the coffee machine having temporarily "klunked out" on the morning of our visit, we were otherwise happy with the experience. CB2 does a good cooked breakfast, if a wee bit more expensive than one might hope, and we always got service with smile. The lack of coffee was supplemented with free orange juice too, so we didn't feel at all put out. Adoring the walls is lots of literature of local clubs and events, some of which CB2 hosts. It was refreshing to experience a cafe/restaurant with some culture and a firm place within its own community.
