A fascinating piece about automated ticket gates, which are exactly 50 years old this week. I love +diamond geezer's blog, it's excellent, and should be added to everyone's RSS list.

Popped up t'Shard today. It's quite high. Fortunately they had the foresight to install some windows.

HDR shots from GF2. The rest are from my Nexus 5. See captions for details.

I enabled the ART runtime on my shiny Nexus 5. Good grief is it fast. It's like a  turbo button. Certain apps that took up to 10 seconds to open on my Galaxy Nexus now take 2-3 on my Nexus 5, and with ART enabled they take barely a second at all. 

Given that it's  such a phenomenal speed difference, cynical me is wondering which HW manufacturers can/will have ART as an option when they provide 4.4 updates for their "old" phones...

I can't wait  to see  what ART does on the Galaxy Nexus, assuming someone manages to port a good 4.4 build over.
