Finally Prince Philip has the recognition that he deserves. Now Tony just needs to sit by the telephone and wait for the pats on the head to roll in.
Former Defence Force chief Angus Houston and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, have been named as Australia's next knights. Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced Queen Elizabeth II accepted his recommendation that both men be awarded the country's top honour. But the decision to knight the Duke ...

One of the cool playgrounds we went to in Brisbane over Xmas. It was awesome to see creativity and less risk-aversion in its design.

Yes and in fact we just missed seeing one that scooted in front of our tour bus on our US trip. By the time the tour guide alerted us and we looked up, it was gone. Always knew they were fast :)

The video is mostly selling potential applications (that will take a lot more development to realize) but I'm interested to see how well the platform performs already.

Getting that right is the key to making this really useful.
