Put this together tonight. Very relaxing. The new range of architecture kits are great.  

Amazon Echo

For my recent birthday, I was gifted one of these bad boys, the Amazon Echo. For those not aware, it sits in your home and with one voice command it can switch on your central heating or air conditioning, play your music, tell you the weather tomorrow, give you a listing of the local cinemas and much more. It's still very early days, and there are limited commands. However, Amazon are adding more more functionality weekly and it will be interesting to see where it all goes. I've been exploring functionality linking it with IFTTT and it's working pretty well with my Nest. 

Say Alexa and then your question... 

New Apple Store at Infinite Loop Grand Opening

Rock, Cornwall

One of my favorite places and views in the world. Rock, Cornwall looking over to Padstow.  

Stunning views over the Camel Estuary.
