Here are some of THE most amazing pictures I have ever seen of the inside of a #Space #Shuttle. This is #Endeavour in one of it's final power-ups before its final mission. Truly stunning.

I've found one of the most useful apps I have ever found, this evening. So, naturally, I had to tell people about it.
I know it sounds overly dramatic, but what I am about to tell you about is, for me, a literally life changing piece of technology. This evening I learned of Mighty Text, the service that allows me to ...

Found this really interesting, had no idea caffeine could actually help with a physical performance. So does that mean I can call my coffee intake part of my 'athletic get fit' regime?! :D
Caffeine... the only 'drug' that I'm addicted to, I honestly just can't get enough, in fact I probably drink too much on a daily basis. But would it be worth hitting the cafe before your workout? The Background Info Caffein...

Interactive Panorama of Mars Built Out of Curiosity Pictures

A Google+ user named +Andrew Bodrov skillfully stitched together a large number of pictures taken by the Curiosity rover on Mars. The result is this interactive panorama, which lets you look around the red planet, and even zoom in on details. 

How cool is this?

For any Android users out there, this is one pretty cool piece of software... written by Microsoft (I know, right?) Definitely worth checking out!

I really think the blend of "being useful to mainstream users" and "being useful to programmers" has really been hit well. People are going to be coming up with some really, really cool recipes - and they are the easiest thing ever to add to your personal isntance!

John D Wood greatly helped myself and my girlfriend when we were searching for a flat as part of our move down to London. We are from a long way out of the area, and dealing with Chelsea Smith was an absolute pleasure and extremely helpful in terms of the information and details of the area we were able to gain. While helping us with finding a flat, she also offered us friendly reassurance and advice about making the move down to London. Unfortunately we did not end up letting from John D Wood in Southfields, but that was nothing to do with the quality of service or price, simply that we opted for a different area. We would very much recommend them, and would definitely pay another visit in the future should we be looking for properties in the area.
