Second post in many months and it's more consumer advice.

I'm looking for an Android phone which:

* has a <5" screen
* has a quality camera
* is durable/ has toughened glass

At the moment the Xperia Compacts are leading the charge, but I'm interested to know what else is out there.

A workmate needs a laptop for his 11 year old, who's starting school soon.

I'm guessing that a Chromebook would be best bang for buck, fit for purpose, and less likely to go wrong than a Mac or PC.

Any recommendations of what to look for/ avoid in a Chromebook? It seems like you can get them for around NZ$350, but that's with 2gig RAM and 16gig SSD - which is pretty much phone/tablet specs. Will that cut the mustard or be slower than slow?

I rode the Timber Trail today, and then got all excited and wrote a bunch of words about it: http://www.aride.org.nz/rides/day-rides/pureora-timber-trail-in-a-day/

On the longest day of the year me and a bunch of mates tried to ride from Hanmer Springs to Nelson. We didn't quite make it - here's our story - and here's our route: http://app.strava.com/activities/101173087

Hello friends! Please donate to Arthritis New Zealand for my Longest Day Ride.

As you all know I'm passionate about/ obsessed with mountain biking. Four years ago I got arthritis in my feet - and thought that I'd never ride bikes again.

Fortunately I've learnt how to live with arthritis and every year I cycle from sunrise to sunset on the longest day of the year to remind myself not to let it get in the way of living a full and enjoyable life.

Please give generously so Arthritis NZ can continue to help people like me.Hello friends! Please donate to Arthritis New Zealand for my Longest Day Ride.

Looking at using Tagboard to stream the #longestdayride hashtag for this year's Longest Day Ride. I hope it works

I've been talking about this idea with a few people of late. Rather than filling the emotional need to connect with other people is social media just leaving us hungry for real engagement?

And yes, I know it's ironic posting this on social media. I even thought about using a hashtag, but then I'd need to stick my head in a bucket of water.

Cute or disturbing? How about we use the word cuteturbing to describe both?

Yes, Snoopybabe is cuteturbing.

Well this is sobering. Especially when I checked it against the lifetime of my two year old son.
