I've always heard Coopers is an institution in Australia, but I've never actually had any of their beers before! Trying the Sparkling Ale tonight, and it's absolutely fantastic. Complex, but not overpowering, with a nose that's like getting kicked by a kangaroo (sorry).

Interesting tidbit: because Coopers is bottle conditioned - rare for an ale produced at this scale - they don't have a "best before" date, they have a "best after" date. As the ale ages in the bottle, it develops more complex flavors and character. Granted, it still could get skunked or stale if not kept at the right temperature and in dark enough conditions.

This six-pack is best after May 17th 2015.

+David Ruddock never heard of​ disgarding it, if that's what you meant. Personally dig the richness those particles add, just not so much all in the last swig, when not previously dispersed. Each to their own though 👍

Yeah, why do people care about design? Let's just bring back Holo I'm sure no one will mind.

...Really?

I didn't get a screenshot, but I assume someone else has seen this. I opened up FB Messenger (yeah, yeah, I know you don't use it - I don't care) and the prompt to enable SMS appeared. It takes over the whole screen, and you have two options - enable SMS or go to settings.

Enabling it asks you to make Messenger the default SMS app. Uh, no, thank you. Go to settings, and there's just a toggle to do the same thing! No option to skip. Not until you hit back does the Messenger UI then appear.

So Facebook is once again up to its scummy misleading bullshit. Average users getting this prompt will likely think the only way back to their messages is to set Messenger to the default SMS provider, because there is zero language or visual indicator signaling an opt-out.

Remember that time Facebook put an app shortcut in the drawer called "Camera" just to confuse people into opening it so they'd share their photos to Facebook? This fucking company, man.

The old Helms bakery is one of my favorite buildings in LA. Aside from being a cool design overall, it's now a giant restaurant and retail center. Father's Office is the restaurant of choice to go to here.

When I was in elementary school the Helms bakery was one of our field trips back in the 1950's.  Our neighbor down the street drove a Helm's Bakery truck through the neighborhood and at the end of the day we would go to his house to FEAST on the leftovers.

+Brian Haslip​ no it doesn't show it, so far all I know Gawker could be sued in to oblivion because they did the wrong things, press reporting on corruption would be the right thing, because corruption affects the public.

If at all, you showed that people need money to get to there right and even that would be thin at best here, because I don't know if those people coulnd't have done it on their own.

Also good on you for pointing out your logical falacie here, slippery slope, otherwise I had to point it out.

Still, this case doesn't show, that press outlets following press ethics can be sued, I thought that's quiet the possibilty, but this discussion rather made me question my position, when this is the case people point to and say:"see!?"

And who does consider Gawker press?

Thanks David. I read the first part and need to make time for the rest. What a strange place America is, quite at odds with the white-stuffni was taught in school, even today's high schools and colleges don't touch such stuff.

This seems highly inadvisable to put on an end consumer device. This is MIUI 8 on the Xiaomi Mi Max. Maybe it's only on the beta release channel...? Either way.

This prompt appears only on the weekly developer releases. Devices get shipped from Xiaomi with stable releases of MIUI and they don't have this option. You have to unlock your bootloader AND manually flash the developer version of MIUI to get this. Most people who know how to flash ROMs also know how to root. So it seems like a pretty good idea to include this option straight into the ROM, instead of having users search on forums and jumping though some extra hoops.

Probably the best American brown ale in existence. I always forget how good it is.

Good free breakfast, nice room, good rate during this time of year. No complaints. WiFi is reasonably quick, too.

Picked up a meeting pass. Hotel looks OK. Bit dated, and the theme (space) is kitchy.

WiFi is crazy slow and there are lots of regular laptop squatters camped out there. Coffee is good, though.
