If this is true about the #Samsung #Galaxy #Note 5, it makes no sense: supposedly not launched in #Europe because Europeans use their devices more for entertainment, rather than productivity.

Um, it has a huge screen and a pen. So you can't keep the pen in the phone and use the huge screen for media consumption?

So what if Europe tends to skew more consumptive and less productive (even presuming that's true)? It won't be the case with all people. There are enough #expats here in Europe that you could reasonably transplant productivity from elsewhere for at least some segment of the population.

Frankly, given their changes to the phone, and the privacy concerns that are starting to come up with their "Smart" TVs, they may find that they've essentially painted themselves into a corner where Europe is concerned, and 'victim blaming' isn't going to save their sales here.

Samsung finally reveals the reason why the Galaxy Note 5 failed to launch in Europe. The handset was previously rumored and then confirmed to arrive in Europe in late January 2016, but never did.

The ability to power remote sensors and devices using Wi-Fi signals could be the enabling technology behind the Internet of things, say electrical engineers.

People are still waking up to how vile Hillary Clinton is, so there may be hope yet, journalist #bootlickers notwithstanding.

"A newspaper is a device for making the ignorant more ignorant and the crazy crazier." If you really want to know how weak Hillary Clinton is as a candidate, you merely have to appreciate that the U.S. media essentially acts as her own personal PR firm, yet the public still recognizes her as a dishonest crook. Brace yourself for the following story, it’s huge.

My book (Adventures in Cybersecurity) has a bit of the @mikko Malware Museum (http://www.sci-tech-today.com/news/Malware-Museum-Shows-Past-Viruses/story.xhtml?story_id=0200028EPTUC) flavour to it as well, detailing my experience with the #melissa and #iloveyou viruses.
It's not the kind of museum where you can buy a souvenir at the gift shop to remember your visit. In fact, you probably wouldn't even want a keepsake from the Internet Archive's new online Malware Museum.

If I die (note the if ;-) ), and there's a funeral/service/memorial (you'll all attend, right?) I want the song "Brother Woodrow / Closing Prayer" by the Afghan Whigs to be the closing song. I'd like everyone to just be quiet, and really listen, and then leave. Hell, that can be the entire service, with that picture of me as a 19 year old being the one they use. (It's in my book, the one where I have the awesome hair and great smile with my original teeth and the awesome terry cloth shirt that I wish I still had.)

Dear publishers:

If you publish an #eBook that costs more than $10, it is highly unlikely that I'll buy it. If your ebook is within 10%, 20%, or even %30 of the cost of the print edition, it is highly unlikely that I'll buy it. I understand, and in fact, many of us understand, that there are costs associated with creating books, and particularly ebooks. But don't for a second take us for fools and think that they approach anywhere near 70% of the cost of a printed book.

"The latest dataset further highlights the extent to which the British economy relies on domestic demand and some analysts are now expecting the fourth quarter growth print of 0.5% to be revised lower in response to the poor industrial sector numbers." - TorFX Daily Bulletin

(www.torfx.com)

My Editorial: So that means, if we rely on domestic demand, then it shouldn't matter when we #LeaveEU.

"We had a whirlwind day today at ShapeShift. Over $500,000 worth of BTC/ETH trades in the past 24 hours. This blows away our previous daily volume record."

The price of Ether increased another 40% in the last 24 hours completing a rise of over 100% during the past week.

(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!
