When Google sent a Street View car into the Tomatina festival the plan was to capture “the magic and colour” of the messy event from all angles....

The Battle of Waterloo, where Napoleon was defeated by an Anglo-allied force and the Prussian army, was fought 200 years ago. To commemorate the anniversary of one of the most famous battles in history, a group of LEGO enthusiasts decided to make a blocky version of the battle, as big and accurate as possible.

Martin Bergman has done it. He’s released shots of a graphics mod for GTA V on PC that actually, and noticeably, improve the game’s visuals.

http://www.iflscience.com/technology/should-you-get-solar-panels-ask-google  Neat Google tool to see how much solar panels might save you on electricity....
There are a lot of things to take into consideration if you want to put solar panels on your roof. If you’re unsure about what to do next, why don’t you Google it? Using its high resolution satellite imagery and huge trove of mapping data, Google has created a tool to help you determine whether you should get solar panels. All you need to do is enter your address into Project Sunroof.

Lovely burgers, okay service. The service wasn't bad exactly, but considering the prices of the mains, it was fairly mediocre and not up to expectation. The typical student type wait staff. Not really bad, but the level of service you expect from a typical chain place. Not attentive where it counts, sloppy and not overly knowledgeable of the menu. The food was lovely though but the descriptions can be a little lacking. Side of vine ripened tomatoes for instance, turns out to be 3 slices of beef steak tomatoes. Not bad, but not what was expected. Bison meatloaf though was lovely and the bison canyon burger was superb, even if it was slightly undercooked in the middle. Kids meals were pretty mediocre, probably better off letting them share a proper main course. Worth checking that the fountain drinks are actually fountain drinks as our little ones asked for root beer, pretty standard fair, but they turned out to be bottles, $3 a piece, which weren't included in the kids meals. For a place that appears to be a bit of a slap up restaurant, it was very casual, so I wouldn't worry about a dress code as it was full of baseball caps and flip flops. Still, for the food and selection of burgers, I'd recommend the place and it was certainly quite reasonably priced, especially the deserts.

We don't even live in state, but when visiting family in the area, we try and schedule a service or maintenance work here. Always great work at great prices and on time. Have been going here for years to get work done on various Saab's we have had and still own.

This place was lovely. We went on a Saturday evening and there was a bit of a wait, 35 or so mins. I don't know how this compares to other local places as we aren't local, but it didn't seem to bad for us. Selection of food is a little overwhelming but what we tried was very good. I had the clam chowder, it was lovely but do watch out for pieces of shell in the bowl as I found a few. The kids meals are great, proper sized, proper meals. The kids fish and chips is especially good. The service and wait staff, pretty good but they do seem pretty aggressive in clearing away your plates even if you haven't quite finished and are in a rush to move you on, nor do they seem to hang around to listen to any requests, hence knocking of one star off the rating.

Driving through Ann Arbor, checked this place out for a quick eat and loved it. The staff were really friendly and helpful and they really did get the food to you quick. The shakes were very popular with our kids. Prices were also very good.

We stayed this last weekend on our way to Santa's Village, so we weren't spending a lot of time here but it was very decent. The front desk and other staff were very friendly and the rooms were great, nice firm beds, nice collection of toiletries in the bathroom and a decent little microwave/fridge in the room too. Our kids loved the water slides, even though they could only go on the smallest one as they're quite little. Quite a noisy area if you had a room around it though, but we were on the third floor (322) which was very quiet. The only negative about the room, though it had complimentary wifi, it was very patchy and would only just about work beside the door to the bathroom. Breakfast that was included was the typical buffet, which was quite decent. A nice selection of pastries and breads, cereals, waffles, fruit and for hot stuff, there was breakfast pizza, sausages and omelettes as well as hard boiled eggs. Do watch out for the omelettes though as I found a rather long black hair going over a bunch of the omelettes in the serving dish. There is a good selection of coffee/tea through out the day besides the dining hall. Well located, near the shops and some great places to eat. We tried the Muddy Moose which was a decent pub type place and the China Chef for a quick bite to eat when we arrived late. One thing to note, if you're heading in on one direction, the Hampton In sign is hidden behind a tree and coming the other way, the hotel is in a slight dip and can be hard to see if it's late and dark out.

We were spending the night in town, so can't compare the quality/cost to other local places, but we found it great. Quick service, lovely food and nice to find that things like the meals were padded out with filler veg like massive amounts of broccoli or mushrooms that some places do. The house special rice is lovely too and all came with decent portions. The one slight potential niggle would be not offering plastic silverware or chop sticks, which for locals probably isn't a concern but we were staying at a hotel up the road. Oh and when they say they're right next to the 7-11, they're not joking, it's tucked into a small mini strip mall type area and can easily be missed.

We got in free as it is part of the National American Reciprocal Museum, where we have a pass for our local one in Acton, MA. So with that in mind, this place was a great place to spend a couple of hours while we were driving through Columbus. It might not have been such great value if you had to pay full admission, but with kids, this place was fantastic, especially as under 5's get in free anyway. There is a great interactive kids section with a lot of activities for them to get involved with. The rest of the art collection, depends on your taste I suppose, but I didn't think it was to bad. Not a lot of older pieces but I hadn't really expected that from a small place. The other facilities such as the gift shop and rest rooms were also good too, as well as a lot of free parking.
