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.

I thought the "problem" with ART is that it requires both storage for the "precompiled" (“Ahead Of Time” (AOT)) stuff, and that there was a delay when using an ART app for the first time.   It is possible that it has bugs in it, which is why it isn't enabled by default.  http://readwrite.com/2013/11/07/how-google-may-be-planning-to-make-android-apps-faster-with-art seems to have a good handle on it.

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.

I'm jelly. Would be interested in more general comparison if you have time to share. Will probably upgrade my GNexus soon.

Excellent and extremely fast service, but the portions are huge! Ignore what the menu says about getting "several" plates for a full meal - 2 each is easily enough! The paella is a meal in itself! Amazing atmosphere and very friendly, entertaining staff. Great value too. Highly recommended.

Came here the morning after Hurricane Sandy made landfall after since most if Times Square was still shut down. From outside looked a bit dodgy (the dirty, battered statue held together by tape!) Went away with a slice of pizza and a hot box of freshly cooked food which were both delicious. And a bargain!
