Elite Dangerous

So I was flying back to dock after a successful bounty hunt and decided to take a picture of my sweet new Cobra and it's new Polar Camo paint job when I got interdicted. I came out OK. Here are the pics.

Issues with eBay

When I sell on eBay I usually select the destination to be Canada, where I live, and the US. But eBay currently is not letting me do this, its Canada only or International. They also only allow two shipping options, so I have one for Canada and one for the US. And eBay tells users from outside of those two countries to contact me for a price. But do they? No. They buy it and than ask for the price, and as it's large and heavy, its very expensive to ship to Malaysia and India (the two I've had so far).

Obviously they don't want it anymore. So I have to go through the cancelation process and relist the item, which I've done twice now. I've had over 10 watchers the first time it happened and about 5 the second time. I'm getting really annoyed, I was hoping to sell it quick, but its been nothing but a complete waste of time. Oh and these two buyers were complete noons. With one having only a 2 on the feedback score and other 0.

Apple at it again, patenting other people's inventions.
 
Seriously? Google introduced this in Android 3 years ago and I remember seeing the feature in Toshiba laptops several years before that.
Unlocking your iPhone could soon be as easy as taking a selfie, according to a freshly-granted Apple patent.

Getting Started with ARC: Android apps in Chrome

I just installed Chrome Canary & Arc Welder on my desktop to test some Android apps in Chrome. I was able to get the Android version of Twiter working without issue.

I also tried Google Play Movies, Music & Pocket Casts but couldn't get them to work, it probably has something to do with Play Services.

Unfortunately Arc Welder won't let you move all your favorite Android apps to Chrome as only one app can be installed at once. It's for testing.

But, it's a good sign that Google may open up Android apps on Chrome. Making Chromebooks that much more functional. Good times ahead.
Contents. Test your app; Upload your app; Best practices. Getting Started with ARC. The App Runtime for Chrome (Beta), or ARC, lets you run your favorite Android apps on Chrome OS. By following these steps, you can try out the App Runtime for Chrome (Beta) during this Developer Preview.

Why do they need to partner? Just because a platform has the most doesn't mean it makes sense to exclusively partner with them. Why not release/update the HBO app for Android, iOS, Mac, PC, Android TV, Roku and Apple TV and have access to all 100%. And maybe even those who don't get it legally will be more likely to sign up.
We're still at least a week away from the streaming service's official launch, but now we know why the two companies ended up working together.

Elite: Dangerous

Some shots of the Sidewinder just before putting it out of commission and replacing it with the Eagle. I've had the game for 64 hours and I've already put 14 hours in, LOL.

I like the Adder. It was my upgrade path and did a fine job for me on rare runs. It also fought off all NPC interdictions.
When I get back from my trip I'm thinking about buying a maxed Sidey for kicks and giggles at the local nav beacon.
