Google Photos created an animation from a number of photos I made outside the McDonalds in Douglas last year around this time of the year.
Google’s new PhotoScan app (it’s on iOS too) is pretty good. Here’s a photo of the Marina in Cork my Dad took sometime in the nineties, probably. I’ll spare you the family photos! 🙂 There’s a lengthy Reddit thread on it too.
A tourist, Tim Viltz, travelling through Ireland shows us just how beautiful our country is in this video created from drone footage shot by a Phantom 4. I don’t recognise most of the locations though. Only one way to fix that, travel! Via Reddit.
The Automattic Grand Meetup starts tomorrow so I’m in Cork Airport waiting for my flight to London. The weird thing about timezones means I leave here in the morning and get to Vancouver in the morning. And it’s still the same day. That also means I need to stay awake so much longer. “Today” is […]
I’ll admit I haven’t been too excited about the whole “paying for things with my phone” hype. I think I may have used a contactless terminal in Mc Donalds once. But there was a system update for my Galaxy S7 Edge yesterday and early this morning I noticed a new application, Android Pay. Despite the […]
I must have been half asleep when I clicked the link in this email, but Gmail hadn’t caught it yet even though it’s an obvious phishing attempt, so be warned if you get an email warning of “urgent maintenance” of your account. Then again, it’s probably a bad site to phish, since most people are […]
G-POWD, the Boeing 767 has been around Europe in the last few days. I’d like to think they were collecting the crew of the new Star Wars movie, like an international flying tour bus, but it’s probably just the normal flying patterns of a private company flying their Jumbo around the continent.
Nice. They’re getting off the plane directly into cars. I was wrong, they had to walk to the main terminal and go through passport control. And here are their drivers who kindle posed for a photo. The film crew came out a few minutes later.
I wasn’t going to mention how ridiculous Danny Healy Rae was in the Irish parliament yesterday except I came across this XKCD comic mocking a US senator over similar beliefs. It’s embarrassing that a member of the Irish Dáil believes that climate change isn’t real and that “God above is in charge of the weather […]
I can’t claim to be the author of this piece. I found it on Facebook but a quick Google search shows it in blog posts and forum threads going back to 2010. Being a Cork man, I’ve never been to Newry. I’ll have to rely on my Dublin friends to tell me what it’s like. I […]
