He also appeared in my so-called personalised What's Hot stream. Good move. I shall do the same.

What does the inside of BBC's iconic Television Centre look like? +Rory Cellan-Jones reveals that it's pretty much like any other big office building except with the odd control room and recording studio adjacent to what look like very normal open-plan office spaces. Judging by the audio this was recorded a few days after the 2000 Presidential Election.
 
Here's a little video I made on my last full day at BBC TV Centre - it's a quick tour of the news operation accompanies by the ghosts of news bulletins past....

I've been there. Stood in a Tardis. Saw the Top of the Pops set. Failed to recognise a young pop group on their way to said Top of the Pops set. I think what interested me most were the cables big and small, multitudinous; running along the tops of the walls. I'm told they had just been laying cables on top of cables for years and that no one had dared to take any down as they weren't really sure where many of them lead. In case they unplug something vital or struggle to get some archaic system running again. Funny thought.

Microsoft's next big app is an Android exclusive. It seems that even Microsoft is backing away from WP7.

Laptop stickers are stupid.

I'm setting up a Samsung Windows laptop for my son, and, as I have done dozens of times before, I'm spending 10 or 15 minutes removing the stickers that Microsoft and Intel require their OEM partners to blight their hardware with.

These stickers are stupid.

Samsung and other companies actually design and build some really good-looking hardware. But then these garish, ugly, sloppily applied, visually annoying stickers are right there destroying the aesthetic of the hardware, and killing the out-of-box experience.

I know, it's a small thing. But it's also a symbolic thing.

As a consumer, the stickers tell me that the coalition of companies that contributed to the product are incapable of working together even on small details to improve my user experience. It tells me they have no respect for their own product. It tells me they don't appreciate aesthetics. It tells me they're stupid.

The strangest thing about it is that the stupidity exists solely to tell me exactly who is so stupid.

OK, so Intel: You're stupid. And Microsoft: You're stupid. It says so, right there on my laptop.

Apple is trying to take over the market in large measure through aesthetically pleasing hardware and great out-of-box experience, and you're too stupid to even do the simplest and cheapest thing imaginable to compete in these areas.

Stupid.

I can see why some people get offended by the confederate flag, yes it has an awful history but don't they fly this flag ALL THE FREAKING TIME in the south?

I mean, if you are going to get upset about a bunch of tea-partiers flying their flag outside the white-house, shouldn't you be upset about the hours millions of confederate flags that get flown just about everywhere south of the country?

Even more bizarre, one one tea party blogger claimed that the flag was put there by liberals... and none of the tea-party Republicans seemed to mind. :-)
If you want people to believe that the Affordable Care Act is the worst thing since slavery, maybe it's not a good idea to wave a freaking Confederate flag at your White House protest. The symbolism is beyond appalling: the first black President of the United States protested with the Dixie flag. Pro tip: If you want to express your love of US Army ...

This game looks a bit like Pitfall on the old Atari systems but plays a bit like Nyan Cat Advanture. What's not to like...
 
BIT.TRIP RUNNER has just landed in the Ubuntu Software Center - see the video at BIT.TRIP RUNNER - it is $9.99 and an awesome game - go to https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/bittriprunner/ and click the Orange button!

+Ubuntu do you have a press contact who'd like to talk about the imminent release and why it's a big deal for The Pod Delusion? Thanks

Spectacular authentic Indian. Quality like this does not come cheap. Trust me - it's worth it.

Friendly fish–oriented restaurant. Average food. Plenty of outdoor space for kids to play. Nothing amazing here, but a bit of nostalgia for the seafood restaurants of 20 years ago.

Significantly better than Costa, Starbucks and the popular high street chains. These guys make coffee with precision and love.

Preposterously overpriced, not great service, portions are tiny but the little you get us good. Great view of the beach. This place is living on it's reputation. We probably will skip it next time we visit the Algarve. Also check the bill for mysterious extra items. That seems to be a regular scam here!
