Property search

Been playing with a rather excellent property search tool where you draw the search area you want and available properties are displayed. A great and far more intuitive way of searching for properties:

Right Move Draw-A-Search

It led to a tangent and I started looking around what must be the most expensive area of the UK; Sandbanks in Poole. Ouch at the prices there! 🙂 Here is a sample:

Great article. Fascinating that a car can go that quick up a demanding road WITHOUT a human driver!!

New gadget – Garmin Edge 500

I have a new gadget, a Garmin Edge 500 cycle computer. I love stats and google maps so caved in quite easily when I saw this device. Even for recreational use it is fascinating (It looks like it is designed for sport training). The detail you can get about your rides is really interesting. I’ve only done two test rides so far and here is are the stats for one of them:

Cycling Route 2 by cyclingjimbob at Garmin Connect – Details

On the stats check out the ‘player’ option – this overlays the journey with the graph data. Very neat.

I’ve hardly touched the surface with it so far, there are many advanced features I haven’t tried out yet. Strangely, buying this device has motivated me to go out cycling more often

Lewis Hamilton shows us inside the McLaren Technology Centre

Lewis gives us a tour in this interesting video showing the inside of the McLaren Technology Centre.  The first thing I noticed is it is clinically clean. Check out the ‘clear desk’ policy later on in the video!! How can anyone work somewhere that tidy!?! That isn’t natural.

Lewis comes across as a easy going guy and completely different compared to when he is hounded by the press asking stupid questions trying to catch him out.

P.S The video looks very new, I think it was filmed the week after the Bahrain GP 2009 (end of April).
