Chrome version 42 was just released and by default it disables support for the Unity Web Player, effectively killing it. Chrome has a large market share overall, ranging from 25-50% depending on what source you're checking. On my own site, according to Google Analytics, nearly 70% of the users use Chrome.

The spread of cost-effective batteries will fundamentally change the way the electric grid operates. Combined with other innovations, batteries in homes and businesses will transform how people and businesses treat electricity. Along the way, these batteries will improve the efficiency a...

How do we get more work done? It is a question that every manager and every passionate worker faces. Yet, for the most part, teams operate on gut instinct and habit. The results are less than optimal. Over the years I've been collecting small pieces of research on various factors that actually ...

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.

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.

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.

I'll get the one complaint out first. This museum is a member of the reciprocal program, but does not take part in the 50% discount that you get from other institutions in the program, which is a little annoying. They do give you a 10% AAA members discount however. Saying that. The place is fantastic, multilevel of different exhibits that are great for a whole range of ages. The water area was a particular favourite for our kids, but there was so much to see and do, it really could consume the whole day. There is ample parking that is free and the food court has a great selection of offerings with reasonable prices. Also plenty of bathroom facilities that are great for the kids.
