How To Search A Specific Area In Google Maps
When you look up a location on Google Maps, you can enter as much information about it as you know. If you only know the name of an establishment, that will often be enough. Any additional information, such as the street or neighborhood it’s in, can be added alongside the name. A slightly more obscure search feature in the app lets you search a specific area in Google Maps.
This is useful if you’re trying to find a local business/establishment but one of the same name exists elsewhere and is far more popular. Area specific search in Google Maps allows you to select a particular area and have Google Maps scan it for the place you’re trying to find. All other areas outside the one you select are ignored.
Open Google Maps and search for a restaurant, park, or bus stop. Once the app loads a location, you will see a ‘Search this area’ button appear under the search bar. Don’t tap it just yet.
First, pan to the area you actually want to search and zoom in to define the limits of the area. Once you have the area you want to scan centered on your screen tap the ‘Search this area’ button. Google Maps will search only that particular area for the place you looked up.
Australia just landed its first high-performance centre for esports
Australia has opened its very first Esports High-Performance Centre in Sydney, a new home base for Oceania’s leading League of Legends team, the LG Dire Wolves. Australia's competitive presence on the international scene is developing, with the LG Dire Wolves becoming the first Australian team to compete at the League of Legends world championships in Beijing's Olympic Stadium earlier in 2017.
"Our OPL (Oceanic Pro League) teams have all grown a lot in the last past 12 months, but as far as dedicated training facilities like this, no other teams in the region have anything that comes close," he said. "It's really the first time that an esports team has partnered up with a traditional sporting body such as the SCG."
Plus, sharing is caring. International and domestic teams are invited to work with the facility and its technology too, when visiting the city.
How To Access Photos & Videos On Your iPhone On Linux
Unlike Android, iPhone users have a harder time accessing their devices on Linux. While it is true that in 2017, distributions like Ubuntu have improved support for Apple smartphones, it is by no means perfect. Often times just plugging in an iPhone isn’t enough, and it requires some extra steps to work right. That’s why in this article, they're going to explain how to access the iPhone on Linux using iFuse.

Use your contactless bank card to ride the Gautrain – Yes Anything for Carrying Fewer Dedicated Cards…
Use your contactless bank card to ride the Gautrain – Yes Anything for Carrying Fewer Dedicated Cards!
Bombela has implemented a pilot project for using contactless bank cards on the Gautrain and linked services. The programme is currently testing the viability of using bank cards on the station’s tap-and-go card readers instead of a dedicated Gautrain card. This would remove the need to carry a Gautrain card, as users can tap their bank card on the service’s card readers.
The fare is deducted from your bank account when you tap the reader at your destination, and users are charged the same way as when making a retail purchase.
If the system is implemented successfully, the Gautrain will become one of the first public transport systems to accept contactless bank cards as payment, said Bombela.

Tesla unveils electric Class 8 big-rig truck, and a speedy Roadster
The truck can go up to 800km (500 miles) at maximum weight at highway speed, Musk said. Diesel trucks are capable of travelling up to 1 600km on a single tank of fuel. Musk said diesel trucks were 20% more expensive per mile to operate than his electric truck. Tesla said the truck can charge for 30 minutes and then travel 644km.
The truck has Tesla's latest semi-autonomous driving system, designed to keep a vehicle in its lane without drifting, change lanes on command, and transition from one freeway to another with no human intervention. Reuters reported in August that Tesla was discussing self-driving trucks with regulators in Nevada and California, but the company did not mention full autonomy in a release on the new vehicle.
Later, the semi-truck opened its trailer, and a new Roadster drove out. The car is an updated version of Tesla's first production vehicle. It can seat four and travel 1 000km on a single charge, a new record for an electric vehicle, Musk said. It can go from 0 to 100kmph in 1.9 seconds.
My Google Pixel 2 XL arrived today
It's only a few hours old so too early to give any impressions yet. I've done most of the setup and restored apps etc. Just struggling to get the Android Wear app to see my watch but I may have to reset the watch first (it's probably expecting the old phone).
I ordered an OtterBox Defender cover which is nicely built but what Google's Store did not show was that this is a screenless version so it has no actual screen protector. I'll likely just get a screen protector fitted locally.
Can a Passenger land a modern jet Plane? Presented by Captain Joe
The finding the knobs and buttons part is just one part of the flying, the more serious problem was establishing the initial communications for a passenger that knows nothing about the cockpit, and as Captain Joe says, if a plane is flying in US airspace and is not responding for 20 minutes, there may be a jet fighter scrambling to shoot it down… Add to this the stress of actually being in the situation and we can see it is a tall order.
This is of course if you made it through the armoured door in the first place… I suppose that's why they have two pilots in the first place! The video shows an Airbus A320 simulator landing.
