A very long, but very fascinating read.

A good time to remember that someone with an opposing view is still a human being
A former heir to a racial nationalist movement reconsiders the ideology he once helped spread.

OK, Google. What does a Time Lord look like?
The sci-fi show has always been scary, but Google's image recognition program makes it downright nightmarish

Pleasantly surprised to see the latest Freakonomics book is free on Google Play and Amazon today. It was only released in May and usually costs about six quid.

Rudy, I served with Steve Jobs. I knew Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs was a friend of mine. Rudy, Trump is no Steve Jobs.

The information in Donald Trump’s old tax returns confirms at least one thing about Trump—and it’s not that he’s brilliant, as his camp claims.

A sane, reasoned, educated and passionate response. For once
 
LSE economics prof Nick Barr keeps being asking by his friends how they should vote in the EU referendum. Here's his answer. It's comprehensive - and even if you disagree there are plenty of links to get your teeth into. http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/brexitvote/2016/05/27/dear-friends-this-is-why-i-will-vote-remain-in-the-referendum/

How to write Apple sycophantic articles 101

"Everyone knows Apple plans to bring Force Touch to the upcoming iPhone 6S (competitor Huawei has already copied the feature)"

So Huawei have copied a feature on a phone that doesn't officially exist yet?

"Force Touch on iPhone 6S will reportedly recognize three kinds of taps" http://www.theverge.com/2015/9/5/9267035/iphone-6s-3d-touch-display-rumor #tech #feedly 
Everyone knows Apple plans to bring Force Touch to the upcoming iPhone 6S (competitor Huawei has already copied the feature), but it sounds like there may be more to it than that. The feature will...

Story
Tagline
Mobile tech obsessive, martial arts fan, mad fitness training and general geeky sci fi lover
Introduction
I'm mildly obsessed with martial arts, cutting edge fitness and strength training, gadgets of all sorts, dogs, sci-fi and tech. (So if you're the same, feel free to circle me - sure we'll click)

If you're interested in general nonsense then add me to a silly people Circle.

If you're interested in X-Factor, reality TV and that sort of thing then I'm probably not someone with much to offer.

Geek, nerd, fitness fan, follower of science and lover of gadgets probably apply more.

Servant to a Jack Russell.

Trying to learn iOS development but failing miserably as I find my iPhone terribly dull.

Learning more about Android development. Failing less miserably but yeah, there is a fragmentation issue that fries my brain cells a bit.
Bragging rights
Learning Android and iOS programming by resurrecting some ancient BASIC skills. Used to be able to do one armed press ups. Might still be able to.
