Dual QuickCharge 3.0 WITH foldable plug

Just wanted to post a link as this seems to me to be the only Dual QuickCharge 3.0 Charger WITH a foldable plug which should be ALWAYS included feature for chargers so not to damage items around it when packed in a backpack/suitcase.

Never heard of Tronsmart but nice job - http://amzn.to/2p227Hz

No idea why almost every other charger only has a single QuickCharge port and normal "smartcharge ports" for the rest....i'm assuming a licensing or engineering reason....but doesnt everyone have two handset minimum house these days.

Russia.....isnt as big as you think

Known about this for a while ever since the famous "West Wing" episode.....but number 2 with Russia overlayed on Africa surprised me.

Koalas are dicks

Its Off Off broadway events like this that make living in NYC perfect.





Brody, America’s favorite koala, has stormed off the set of his hit sitcom. Holed up in a sleazy LAX motel, he's got enough booze and drugs to last for months.

Desperate to get him back on track his agent, wrangler, and co-star try to make him see reason. But is their concern for Brody's future? Or their own?

Koalas are Dicks is a dark Hollywood comedy about terrible people and the koala who supports them.

Unfortunately yesterday was the end of a "too" short run.......but hopefully will get to see Grant Tambellini, Peter Buck Dettmann, Tiffany May McRae, Larry Phillips, Phoebe Leonard & Griffin Hennelly in something else sooner than later as they were all awesome in this production and deserve to be in major long run Broadway production.

NBN - A Network Error

https://www.themonthly.com.au/issue/2017/april/1490965200/paddy-manning/network-error
He called his internet retailer to ask about their 100 Mbps NBN plan ($80 a month), and here’s where the story gets interesting. They didn’t want to sell him the 100 Mbps plan, recommending a 25 Mbps plan instead, and telling him the NBN had said that, for the coexistence period of 18 months (while ADSL and NBN technologies were running simultaneously), there’d be a slowdown in NBN speeds. Curious, Adam called the NBN and was told that was rubbish, and he should definitely be able to get up to 100 Mbps at his address. He called the retailer back and ordered the 100 Mbps plan. Off-peak he is now getting 25 Mbps, but it fluctuates wildly, and at peak times in the evening he is getting between 2 and 8 Mbps – worse than before. https://www.themonthly.com.au/issue/2017/april/1490965200/paddy-manning/network-error



All i can say is i'm glad i live in New York with unlimited download 300/30 for $70 a month while this crap is going on.

Cant believe people voted Turnbull in.

We were so close.....but now so far.

What i dont understand is why we as Australian voters arent doing more to lobby around getting this fixed.

These are our rights that are being affected.

These are services we pay good money for that are being delivered poorly.

When are we as a nation going to utilise the resources we posses in order to force a better service level agreement for our money?

NSW land titles "sold" to private interests for $2.6b......for a footy stadium upgrade

Come in spinner.......

Property owners of NSW.....hope you had your bran this morning because bend over....you just got shafted.

It makes absolutely no sense to sell off the family silverware today if you have to pay to rent it back next Sunday.....and why did we do this? All to upgrade some footy stadiums.

What a joke.


http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/nsw-land-titles-registry-leased-for-26-billion-to-hastings-funds-management-first-state-super-20170412-gvjcfw.html
The Berejiklian government has announced it will lease the state's 150-year-old land titles registry to Hastings Funds Management and First State Super for 35 years, after accepting their bid of $2.6 billion.


I give it about 12-18 months before they start jacking up prices due to "unforeseen circumstances" (lol=33.5 years worth of #FatProfits).

Whats the bet that HFM make more than $130m x 35 years for their $2.6b investment......it will make this "lease payment" look like chump change

Feel free to send your comments to Premier Gladys Berejiklian via twitter @GladysB once this starts to happen.
