Phew, what a scorcher! Yep, summer has finally arrived here in Great England, with no fewer than five consecutive days of no-snow causing an outbreak of hosepipe bands, tearing open the tarmac on roads and bringing traffic to a standstill, seeing an ugly rash of shirtless men roaming freely through park and town alike, provoking a terrifying upturn in dogs left dangerously in cars, and spreading fears of a Pimms shortage as we, the alcoholic middle class, move into default mode. Thank your generic god then that’s it’s nearly over and we can soon return to huddling in darkness!
Which is your weather update done; as to what else has been happening, well, sit back and brace for a barrage of bundled Android bottom-line from a week busier than one of those buzzy things.
App-wise we’ve been touring the Trousers of Time again, heading forward into Earth’s future to fight fearsome furry things with the Fresh Prince, backwards into battle for a wacky take on World War II, and then off to Glastonbury and the mystical music fest where time seems largely irrelevant.
In the News, this week saw Computex 2013 go down on the tip of Taiwan, unleashing an array of exciting new Android kit which we’ve mixed like the perfect Pimms with the latest on Apple-based lawsuits and, of course, this week’s top-notch Friday Featured Speaker.

Sometimes the only solution to successfully dealing with the trials and tribulations of day-to-day life is not to silently supress it all in a civilised way, but to blow off all your steam publically in a shower of stranger-shredding shells. No, not in reality! Put that down, America! No, come here and I’ll explain…
The end of June sees Glasto kick return to fill ears with a mix of the music of today and stomachs with ill-advised vegan curry hotdogs for a tenner a pop from a man who looks like he hasn’t washed since the 90s. For those about to rock… here’s an app.
Bringing the essential sounds to your summer, Bose’s latest lovely little enlivener offers you a small-scale speaker with an exceptionally big sound.
That’s your lot for another week, so hopefully you’re sated now until Monday rolls around again with all the crushing inevitability of linear based time. We’re all off now to stand still under the sun and soak up enough ultraviolet light to help us re-ingest vitamin D and rid ourselves of our office-accentuated rickets. That and Pimms. Soak up light and Pimms. I’ve given up fighting it now…
