Nice! Though I'm still holding my breath to see Microsoft's next PixelSense (née Surface) table looks like. Since they acquired Perceptive Pixel and got Jeff Han on board, it will be sure to be awesome and will almost definitely support stylus input. :)
 
Who else wants this?

Why is every giant touch-screen product a "solution" for "vertical applications"? It's time for the consumer version!!

Need to get used to it, having a bit of information overloaditis. It kinda reminds me of a newspaper, and I was never that good at reading those either. Coincidence? :P

Whether or not you've been following the epic story of Paul Miller's year without internet, you should read this article / watch the related video. It's just incredibly refreshing for someone in the tech community to be willing to think critically / question the mantra of "better life through technology". :) Plus it's just some solid, honest writing.

Quite cool, I never got to try #ChasingAurora since I don't have a Wii U but now I can finally enjoy the awesome art style and feeling of glorious 2D flight on my Mac! :) It looks like they still need some financial help for their Indiegogo campaign, so might I suggest taking a look at their page and considering helping them out yourself!
 
Our new game Secrets of Rætikon has launched as Open Alpha on Indiegogo. Watch the trailer, support us, have fun! Feedback welcome!

Looks really nice! I always thought IntelliJ was the nicest Java IDE anyway. (Full article here: http://android-developers.blogspot.com/2013/05/android-studio-ide-built-for-android.html)
 
#DevBytes :  Android Studio

Earlier today we announced Android Studio. In this #DevByte , +Tor Norbye gives a quick preview of the IDE based on the community edition of IntelliJ.

I wouldn't recommend this hostel to anyone except as a last resort. Not only are the rooms much too small for the number of people, but the staff is extremely unfriendly. The whole atmosphere makes one feel like he is being treated simply as a source of money rather than as a person. After reserving ahead of time, I checked in with my girlfriend for a two-night stay and was asked whether we were together, to which I answered "yes". I was informed that we were assigned beds that were not next to each other. I asked how strict the situation with the beds were and whether it might be possible to switch, to which the response was "the room is already full, it's your problem if you want to switch with someone else". When we got to the room, we did indeed manage to convince another guest to switch beds with us. However, the next day when we came back from our sightseeing tour we were in for a shock. All of the stuff that had been on the bed -- toiletries, a charging mobile phone, a towel, a laptop charger, etc., plus the backpack that had been in the trunk under the bed had disappeared, and another person was lying in the bed. It turns out that the person we had switched with had checked out, and the hostel staff had removed everything from the bed to which he had been assigned. We went to the lobby to ask what happened and were again treated to unfriendly/clueless staff. Luckily we did eventually succeed in getting our stuff back. However, everything -- electronics, toiletries and all -- had apparently been dumped into a big trash bag, and the toiletries bag had been left open so that shampoo etc. was tumbling around freely inside. All in all it makes one question the training/job satisfaction of the people working at this hostel when they treat guest's possessions in such a thoughtless manner. Honestly, had the initial check-in person not been so unfriendly and had he informed us that the cleaning staff would mercilessly attack assigned beds after the assignee had checked out, the situation could have been avoided. In any case, there are enough other reasons besides the unfriendly staff to avoid this hostel--the rooms are very cramped, the bathrooms are practically port-a-potty-sized, there's a very high risk of running into annoyingly loud, party-minded teenage school kids, and lots of things (key cards, electric outlets) don't work half the time. On top of that the location, while practical, is somewhat dodgy at night. Just say no to this hostel. Go somewhere where you'll be treated like an actual person.
