I have watched this 3 times now. I wonder if I will EVER get bored of watching these guys dicking around with kites.

Awesome!

I'm used to missing out on being able to play with cool apps due to being a windows phone user but this time its a Microsoft app and my 'Flagship' lumia is missing from the supported devices list.

Looks cool though! (Available for Android)

This kick starter looks quite cool. Essentially its a device to help generate a custom weather forecast for a specific area rather in much finer granular detail than that currently available. Whats not to like.

I came across it whilst reading this review of it : https://wetestkites.wordpress.com/2015/05/06/pre-review-the-wezr-sensor-a-device-for-a-better-wind-forecast/#more-554

A trip back to 2012 to visit memory lane. Suprisingly prescient.

Interesting gadget for a go pro. Given that its waterproof I'm wondering what footage I might get kayaking or kiting. Hmm...

Living with my Microsoft Band notes:

Battery life:
Suprisingly good! Managed 2 hours less than 4 days from a single charge. Will easily go for a weekend without needing a charge. Note I didn't do any workouts during that 4 day period and that would affect the battery life. However, on an earlier test, a days use including 2.5 hours of GPS tracking left me with 50% battery. Not to shabby.

Heart Rate and steps:
Yep. This seems to work.

Notifications:
This is the reason I chose the band over some of the competition. It works pretty nicely. As will have been noted elsewhere, it would be nice if reading the notifications on the band cancelled them on your phone - but its a multi platform device so you can't expect it to be flawless yet.

Keyboard: 
Works surprisingly well. Good for a couple of word reply but a bit of a chore for anything more. As to be expected really.

Calorie counter:
The only disappointing thing at the moment. I remember testing out a band a while back and it seemed more accurate/feasible. An example, 2 days ago I lazed around the house with a cold, did 0.5 mile of steps and burned 1950 kcal. Yesterday I walked 6 miles and did 2100 kcal. Either it is now a lot more accurate or it underestimates when not in workout mode. Either is possible.

Overall:
Currently a happy camper. I'm slightly limited in choice due to my preferred phone platform but I don't feel like I'm missing out at the moment.

Short film review time:

John Wick. 4/10
Keanu Reeves plays ex mafia hitman John Wick. The mafia break into his house and kill his dog. Cue action.

Unfortunately even the well choreographed action scenes cant rescue the one dimensional plot. Worth a watch if you are bored but if you have the option watch Last Man Standing or Fist full of dollars as they are better versions of this film.
