Google Maps for iOS is getting a new feature today designed to help users find the best places to eat and drink in their vicinity.It s true that Google Maps for iPhone and iPad already let users find places nearby to quench their thirst or fill their belly, serving up categories such as Local Favorites, Quick Bites, Pub, and Eat & Drink, but it also offered Play & See which included movie theaters, department stores, parks, and museums.Now when you first open Google Maps on your iOS device you ll see that the Explore feature is labelled specifically for food and drinks.This is similar to how it already appears on the Android version of the app.Additionally, rather than splitting the options by walking distance and time of day, it now lets you select what kind of culinary experience you re looking for: breakfast, lunch, coffee, dinner, or drinks.The visible options will default to whatever time of day it is where you are, so rather than showing you breakfast bistros in your neighborhood at 5pm, it ll maybe show you Pizza Hut or a burrito-bar.With each top-line category you ll be able to sift through additional sub-categories, such as keep it cheap, best dinners, or make it fast.The new Explore feature will be rolling out from today in the U.S., UK, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain, though we re told it could take a week or so to arrive for everyone.

View photosMoreA GoPro Hero 3 camera is seen at the Nasdaq Market Site before before GoPro Inc's IPO in New York City, June 26, 2014.Briefly a Wall Street favorite following an initial public offering in 2014, GoPro's shares have fallen 82 percent in the past year as the company wrestles with weak demand for its helmet- and body-mounted cameras.The Austrian drinks company shows its often-raw and edgy extreme sports videos through apps on the Apple TV , Alphabet's YouTube, Microsoft's Xbox and Sony's Playstation.My guess is we'll see more GoPro logos in those videos," said Dougherty & Company LLC analyst Charles Anderson, who has a "neutral" rating on GoPro's stock.Demand for GoPro's cameras has been declining as rivals like China's Xiaomi XTC.UL offer cheaper products and smartphone cameras turn increasingly advanced.The San Mateo, California company's Hero Session camera released last year did not meet Wall Street's sales expectations and GoPro has yet to launch a new version of its higher-end Hero4 device released in 2014.
But the rest of the patrons don complimentary parkas, gloves, and hats to stave off the cold, the better to enjoy their speciality cocktails, which are served in custom glassware—also made of ice, of course.We like to say that the drinks come in the rocks instead of on the rocks, general manager Rupert King told me.But Bowman quickly learned the concept worked better as a novel attraction rather than as a typical nightclub.Fresh lemons and limes would freeze, so forget about those traditional garnishes.And while the bartenders do use fruit juices, they have to rotate them out every 20 minutes or so, lest they start to resemble slushees rather than juice.That s why Minus 5 has streamlined the process so that a bartender only has to touch four items, at most, in order to make a drink: a vodka, a modifier, and two juices, for instance, or a vodka and two juices.

According to some people who frequent the darker corners of the Berlin club scene in the hope of bumping into Steve Davis showing Ronnie O'Sullivan what it's all about, there's a hot new chemsex-techno drug on the streets -- chocolate.Berlin club night Lucid apparently gets the kids and recently divorced middle-aged techno enthusiasts going by serving drinks laced with a Balinese cacao, while global club night organiser Morning Gloryville goes so far as to stock cacao pills -- chocolate buttons by any other name -- to give its visitors that authentic pill-popping experience but without the risks of renal failure.Presumably they also charge £10 a time for the pills, and some are low-grade hydrogenated vegetable oil options that do nothing, to make it just as exciting a lottery as doing actual drugs.As to the effects of mixing techno and chocolate?The release of endorphins from the happy taste makes you feel a bit more like busting out the robot dance moves, the magnesium levels of raw cocoa relaxes the muscles, plus flavanols boost circulation and, therefore, perhaps, just maybe, boost brain power.Make sure to check out our @GizmodoUK Twitter feed, and our Facebook page.
