MorpHex is an awesome little Hexapod robot that can transform into a ball.

Google has a difficult couple of years ahead of it. Revenue per click on desktop looks likely to keep falling and it's proving difficult to make money from mobile. Their core business is huge so replacements need to be equally large. The good news is that Google isn't your ordinary, everyday company. Watching Larry Page pour resources into R&D and diverse acquisitions is fascinating. I just hope they can execute on some of the promise and don't end up like an enormous latter-day Xerox PARC.

There are some young dandies on this morning's train. They look far too comfortable at their table, lounging around in elegant postures.

A great list of the best 100 animated movies ever, as voted for by top animators. The top 10 is very close to what I would choose.

A giant of a man stands in the aisle of the tram carriage, miraculously steady, as if he were waist deep in treacle.

Have just seen a big, beautiful hare running across a field. Made my morning :)

Rabbit sightings have a way of making one's day.

A man on the tram is talking loudly on the phone. He has an important meeting in Leeds. The carriage is being brought up to speed.

Pick up the nearest large item (book, laptop, tablet) and start shouting loudly "HELLO! I'M JUST ON MY MOBILE"

It worked for me on a train once...

The man opposite on the train has angry eyebrows. He spots something over my shoulder and fixates on it. I'm pinned.
