Did I miss a meeting? When did The Independent newspaper turn into a Daily Mail bottom feeder like trash mag? https://twitter.com/Independent/status/775830432990408704

Journalism is all but dead.
The Independent – Verified account @Independent. What comes out of this man's mouth is the most disgusting thing you'll see today http://i100.io/a5Qn88C · Embedded image. 3:56 PM - 13 Sep 2016. 2 Retweets4 Likes. Reply to @Independent ...

Chromebooks outsold Macs for the first time in the first quarter of this year. Chrome OS with Android app support is around the corner, and it's going to be a huge game changer.

Adoring the irony that Apple, (after chucking stones at Android about security) gets a malware breach.

"A honeypot for assholes". How Twitter has not got its trolls under control.
What's more amazing is this long but very informative read is on Buzzfeed! Who knew?

Google's 'Duo' launched today & it's super simple & most importantly, cross platform. Those key factors alone should see this do well long term, and anything to move away from antiquated walled gardens is good to me. The future should be one of 'works anywhere', and this is a step in the right direction. Just still not clear strategically where this fits in with their existing suite of offerings...

'The airlines have maximized profits by making travel as miserable as possible.' A good article by the NYTimes Gail Collins, highlights all too well the almost calculated misery of flying 'Con Air' today.

Having been on thirty odd flights this year alone, I am in no hurry to board a plane and experience the penny pinching, knee crushing, time suck fiasco that is airline travel.

It's now so out of control, it's just deeply farcical (Google 'Cheap Flights Song - Fascinating Aida') and has been for many years. This year alone I have seen crazy charges for checked luggage, different weight allowances (and charges) for each step of my international flights, charges for pillows and on it goes. We'll skip the credit card processing, seat picking, food, drink, parking and fuel surcharges for now. To put it into perspective airlines made $26 billion in profit last year, and nearly $4 billion in baggage fees.

Now if they just changed their names to say 'Misery Airlines', 'Stingy Airways' or even better, 'Con Air', at least you couldn't then fault them.

Always, fresh, always hot, always good. The only fish and chips I like on the Gold Coast. Incredibly well priced too.

Great mall that has just about everything you'll need. A long walk fomr one end to the other, it has a good food court, decent supermarkets, Kmart, Target & more. Oh and it has a 'Zing' a great place for toys and collectibles!

A little quiet and certainly one for the retirement posse, but decent enough stores to get groceries and a target and reject shop (always some good close outs if you hunt). Some decent cafes and amenities good parking and about 30 min walk 10 mins drive from main Surfers paradise.

It's all very small and just too new to be deserving of another star, but they really are trying to buck this place up. It has nice new walkways, statues, stores and a great if still a little quiet after hours market every few weeks at night.

I always find Coles more expensive than Woolworths and whilst it's down to choice where you shop for groceries, this one is a little on the more expensive side, being smack bang in tourist central. It's buried away at the back of this cool mall and is clean and well stocked and often busy.

Probably one of my favourite places to shop as BIG W always has a decent range of Toys at reasonable prices. Stores clean and well stocked.
