In Other News – 14 January 2015

It’s time for your weekly dose of “what is Zoe doing other than playing games?” Right, you guys care, right? Well, too bad! I’ve been watching lots of Doctor Who. In fact, I’m going through the seasons so quickly, I’m starting to wonder what I’ll watch afterwards – anyone recommend Torchwood?

Normally I don’t comment on the Wired Wednesday tech because I think it speaks for itself, but I have to explain my love of Pluggage. It’s smart luggage revealed at CES that will weigh itself, recharge your phone if you can’t find a plug in the airport, and will let you know if it’s on or off the plane. I know it’s stupid tech and we don’t really need “connected luggage”, but I totally want it.

In Other News: Popsicle sucking is hypnotic, dates and more dates, and review scores are overrated.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were too busy welcoming Darryn to 2010.

    Let me know when it’s off the plane? It’d be better if it had a GPS which lets you know how far it is from you 😛 that way you can go have a coffee or something instead of waiting for hours at the baggage carousals

      Good luck trying to get airport personnel to look at your phone as you frantically try to explain how your GPS luggage is on it’s way to Nigeria. Ignorance is bliss

    Grabbed Black Mirror over the holidays, can’t recommend it enough. Great series which funny enough ties in to the Pluggage thing too. Two three-part mini-series, each episode is it’s own self-contained satirical mindfcuk. Can’t recommend it enough. I said that twice.

    yes, Torchwood is worth watching.
    Plus you’re a girl, so i’m sure you probably won’t complain about seeing more Jack Harkness.

    very different to Doctor Who though.

      Can’t The Witcher 3 come with a 6 pack of Witcher beer incentive. The game should sell really well then.
