Why exactly does the +Starbucks Coffee​ (@starbucks) app need access to my contacts? For that matter why does it need all the permissions it already always to have?

The market top in four charts.

Really, you should be reading +ZeroHedge if you're not.

Nine technologies that could/are changing the world now:

http://io9.com/5942574/9-overlooked-technologies-that-could-transform-the-world?
We live in an era of accelerating change. Technology is changing and innovating faster than most of us can keep up. And at the same time, it's easy to get so caught up in shiny visions of the future, and not notice the astounding things that are happening in science and technology today. So the next time people ask you where the future went, tell them it's already here.

Right now, I'm working in a Virtual Machine, running in a Virtual Machine, accessed via Terminal Services, running in a browser on a machine that I've accessed via Terminal Services through a browser on a laptop via wireless.

The machines in question are in the US (I think); the browser accesses a gateway service in Australia, and I'm in the UK.

It's actually fairly speedy, too.

While the obvious answer is to buy her a tablet with rounded edges, that school bus drivers are allowed to make safety rules that prevent children from reading books is absurd.

An eight-year-old girl in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., was told she’s not allowed to read a book on the school bus because it poses a risk to the safety of other students.

Rickets is apparently on the rise here in the UK. I was taking supplemental vitamin D (among other things) well prior to coming here, but I made sure to continue since there's less exposure to sunlight generally.

Historians looking back on our time will often wonder how so many people became Vitamin D deficient.
Pre-school children could be given free vitamins to fight the rising tide of rickets cases in the UK, caused by a lack of direct sunlight.

In an ironic twist, buying anti-stress balls on +Amazon.com (@amazon) is really stressful.

America's largest bank joins the war on cash, even going so far as to prevent its storage in safe deposit boxes.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-04-23/largest-bank-america-joins-war-cash
The war on cash is escalating. Just a week ago, the infamous Willem Buiter, along with Ken Rogoff, voiced their support for a restriction (or ban altogether) on the use of cash (something that was already been implemented in Louisiana in 2011 for used goods). Today, as Mises' Jo Salerno reports, the war has acquired a powerful new ally in Chase, the largest bank in the U.S., which has enacted a policy restricting the use of cash in selected marke...

(I also posted this review to Trip Advisor.) This has to be one of the best kept secrets in Limassol. Slightly tucked away off the main road across from the Four Seasons hotel, this place looks unassuming from the outside. Blended in with the dozens of other local eateries, it quickly stands out once you start eating. My wife and I went in February, so we had the place to ourselves for the most part. The kitchen was staffed by an older gentleman (presumably the proprietor) and a younger man (presumably his son). The menu was the first evidence that this is a quality establishment - instead of a slapdash listing of food like many places on the island, it was a well-bound thick book with Greek and English, and pictures where appropriate. We had hummus with pita bread and garlic bread as appetizers. The garlic bread was crisp and delicious, and slightly burnt around the edges to maximise the flavour. The pita bread was the perfect warm temperature, and contrasted with the colder hummus quite nicely. The hummus itself had just the right amounts of olive oil and paprika, and held its own aside from the bread. My wife's fish soup was delicious, with the fish complemented highly with the choice of vegetables, in a well-rounded flavour profile that my wife thoroughly enjoyed. I had the dolames, which is shredded pork and rice wrapped in vine leaves and cooked in a hearty tomato sauce, which came with a plate of vegetables (salad-like, but more than salad) and potato wedges. It's tough to describe the flavour combinations that were evoked with the dolames, except to say that I don't know that I've ever had all the parts of my tongue working together like that before. There was a tzatziki sauce on the side that somehow made it even better (adding to the texture and muting the temperature just a bit in a good way) and it was simpy fantastic, insofar as words are inadequate to do the experience justice. On asking for the bill, we were given complimentary galaktoboureko, a sweet dessert which neither of us had room for until we actually tried the first bite. Suddenly, we found the room, and the plates were both empty in a couple of minutes. We both wholeheartedly recommend this place!

Moving to the UK from the States was far easier than it would have otherwise been without Foxtons. The ability to do everything online meant that other than seeing the property I could do everything without having to travel overseas (and this included documents & fees). Their service was helpful and friendly, and I recommend them highly!
