Read most of the big reviews now. It's very clever, but I am still amiss as to what the Apple Watch is actually for?I didn't even pick up a pencil for the whole weekend. Now I must return to the bread & butter creatively malnourished. Maybe next week eh?Ever have one of those weekends where you feel you could have achieved more with 48hrs out of the office?Chemicals harmful to health if you inhale them shocker. Who knew? https://t.co/7ygrJrMRG1Applying the ethics of @CaseyNeistat I feel it is no ones bike. Chain off, flats, unmoved for weeks. That 10 speed is mine on Monday.

Once there's a premier pro or fcpx alternative, I am going totally Linux.I am actually putting off going to the toilet for this.USB formatted. Terminal open. dd ready. 12 mins to go. @elementary@goddardlewis @elementary I was about to say, I wish there was a torrent, and the universe has provided one. Thanks Lewis.You better wait though. Looks like SourceForge is taking a pounding. Download has gone from 14m to over 3hrs for @elementary Freya. Sadface.Ddownloading the latest and greatest @elementary version, Freya, now. Nice new site too: http://t.co/ke7PPklw5k go see. Spend some money tooApparently there was some equine sports earlier that we're all supposed to be exited about. Sorry, I missed it.

The last few years we’ve been living in the post smartphone generation, and all the kids are so much dumber now. So dumb. So utterly dumb.Looking at all these students work, makes me wonder what they’ve been learning for the last 2 years? Snapchat, mainly.

So they took a design from 2003 and put a netbook inside it, made it thinner and painted it gold. WINNING FORMULA! http://t.co/coQUG0044YGreat @jean_jullien response to the #AppleWatch "Apple announces revolution" http://t.co/oaHtvPQJ3W

It's really time to find a job that pays me the going rate for today, not 7 years ago. #paydaymayday anyone hiring?#paydaymaydayAnd you know you've been running on fumes too long when you put a tenners worth in and the light is still on.How the fuck does one small bag of not very exciting food shopping total up to £11? No champagne not caviar in this bag.Emergency stash used. All is lost! ALL IS LOST!Shit. One rizla left.Just checked my bank account. Payday Friday.
