Nintendo's Expansion into Other Genres will Save the WiiU



I often see comments saying that Nintendo consoles aren't doing well because they don't have games like COD and Skyrim. Obviously this is bullshit from people who haven't even exploded beyond a very select amount of games. But it did get me thinking about one of Nintendo's biggest legitimate criticisms, the fact they like to play it safe.

Google Bans Porn!



Today I casually went on to blogger to see how things are going over here. I was greeted with a message from Google saying that from the 23rd March they are no longer allowing sexually explicit content on any blog. If any existing blog has this sort of content they will be made private so only admins can see content and any blog made after that date with such content will be deleted.

Not that this effects me or any of my blogs whatsoever. But it does come as a shock to me. Honestly, what is Google trying to pull with this? I can't imagine many people being happy about this move. I can maybe understand bringing in new efforts to alert people of 18+ blogs. But straight out banning porn is silly.

Note:
We’ll still allow nudity if the content offers a substantial public benefit, for example in artistic, educational, documentary, or scientific contexts.

Surely porn in general covers "substantial public benefit".  Oh well. Though how will this be policed? This stinks of YouTube's flag system here. Where blogs might get deleted because someone has reported content that doesn't actually break the rules but since the system doesn't properly check and because Google's customer service in these cases is plain awful, blogs get deleted for no reason.

Graze Box Review #1



Today I received my first Graze box after ordering it last Saturday thanks to some promo codes my Dad found in his boots. A friend of mine used to get these and he had enjoyed them and after looking through a couple of reviews online I decided i'd try it out. The website is very easy to use and shows all their different boxes and possible contents, all looking very tasty. You can select if you want certain items to be sent right away or if you never want a particular item you can set it to "bin". There's a few items that are automatically set to bin, such as the jerky and the broth products as they contain meat and not everyone wants that. So if you're hoping to get those make sure uncheck them from the bin option.

Thoughts on Stephen Fry's Comments on God



What I find most annoying about Stephen Fry as of late is the sheer amount of people that stand there applauding every single word out of that bloated head of his. As if he can't do no wrong and as if everything he says or writes is gospel.

His latest interview where he explained what he would say to God on meeting him at the gates to heaven has been a very popular subject these last few days. It's also been a thankful one for me, as for the last few months I have had a strong dislike for Mr. Fry and really I couldn't put my finger on it until now.

Sushiwaka, Excellent New Japanese Restaurant Opens in Leeds


You know those times when you stray from the beaten path, rather than walk the way you usually do you just happened to take a different turn, still heading in the same direction in the end. Sometimes you end up finding new things this way, which is what happened to me last week. I stumbled upon a newly open Japanese restaurant in Leeds City centre.

Sushiwaka, just off of the Headrow used to just be a Karaoke bar, but sometime late in December it opened a new restaurant serving wonderful Japanese dishes. Don't worry the karaoke is still there, just upstairs.
