Is there a process for returning/replacing a faulty watch received from Google IO? My Samsung Gear Live (after being left unused for some time) is entirely dead and won't charge on AC or via any USB. Can I get it replaced and, if so, how?

I have the same problem with both Google I/O watches. I had a good experience getting the Moto 360 replaced. (I don't remember how I started the process, but once I started it, the process went pretty smoothly through Google Play.) But when I got the second Moto 360, it's battery life wasn't much better than the first. Now neither of the watches (the Moto 360 or the Samsung Gear Live) can hold a charge long enough for me to wear it for a whole day. I'm thinking about calling them again but I'm not sure how many times I'll have to get replacements.

Google+ UI is a mess. I hate the "what's hot" stuff that pollutes my stream and for the life of me I can't find the "slider" that's supposed to control how much of that crap I see, and mouse wheel scrolling hardly ever works.

Meeting rooms feature strange angular sofas, the corridors look like the inside of the starship Enterprise and workers can play pool and video games during breaks.

Yeah. In as much as there are walls, ceilings etc then it's pretty much the same.

Tesco and blinkbox link the physical purchase of Blu-ray and DVD to the ownership online films. Clubcard holders will find that for selected Blu-ray and DVD purchases that the online movie will appear in their blinkbox video library automatically.

And what better way to kick this off than with the launch of The Deathly Hallows Part 2?

I've just found this "flowchart template" in a box of stuff from Uni. This REALLY dates me...

1) It refers to punched cards and magnetic tapes
2) It has inch measurements down the side
3) It was bought from John Menzies (do they exist any more?)
4) It was "Made in England". We don't make "things" any more, do we?

Hey +Giles Knap. This puts your little Ferrari "incident" into perspective...http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-16027006
A dozen luxury sports cars - eight Ferraris, a Lamborghini and three Mercedes - collide in what is likely to be one of Japan's most expensive pile-ups.

Yeah, but they look like they can be rebuilt. Mine was a writeoff!

The last point about hash-fragements in URLs has always bugged me. You end up having to scan the entire page looking for the relevant section.
