I am going to have to chalk this up to a fail, HBO Now. There is no need for Flash for video playback. +Hulu is guilty for this too, but I believe +Netflix has proven that it is not needed. Even for subscription services.

There are constantly exploits for the plugin. So much so, that even Mozilla has tired of it and has blocked it. Yes, I am an oddball for not installing and additionally disabling it in Chrome, but I feel justified due to very recent events.

Tonight, as part of a team bonding week for work, I went to a place in Boston called Medieval Manor. It was stupid fun. That could just bee the massive amounts of cheap beer I consumed taking.

Although this is not part of the show, but my coworkers enjoying themselves, this is my favorite photo captured from my phone.

I work with some good, fun loving people.

There was one last cookie that no one wanted, so I took it. Same damn message.

Apparently the default Android clock is being moved to Google Play. I updated it for the sake of updating it, but I am a Timely user. Gotta love alarm syncing across devices.

I was excited that +IKEA USA​ was getting furniture with integrated Qi charging. I now own a piece.

The next step is to have tables with multiple charging pads so I will have places for my phone and watch. They sell such things as addons, but it would be nice to have them be seamless.

+Chris Weber They have really gone all in on the wireless charging. I am also tempted to get some of the lamps for around the house... maybe even for the office.

I encourage all of my PS4-less friends with an iOS device to get this game.
The PlayStation 4 is home to some of the best indie games around, but even still, Transistor stands out among the best. Its beautiful, isometric cyberpunk world coupled with an incredible...

I think I am going to like this new monitor.

It is also very nice for working on website stuff as I can have lots of windows open. Sooooo much desktop available.

I look forward to this. I love wireless for the ease of use and throughout the day charging, but it can be slow for top offs. Quick charging is great for top offs, but it requires me to dig a cable out of my bag and plug something in. This will be and awesome mix of both worlds when i get a device that is capable.
Wireless charging is about to become just as capable as wired charging. An update to the Qi charging spec has been announced by the Wireless Power Consortium, and it's all about more power and backwards compatibility. Qi chargers will soon be able to fully utilize 15W charging device, more commonly known as Quick Charge 2.0 chargers. Qi platters will be able to pass the power to...

Note to self: don't offer to build a website for Donald Trump.
Donald Trump's wackiest quotes from his presidential campaign opener, including his thoughts on Obama and building "great walls" along the US-Mexico border.

For you Canon shooters that want a low cost lens, Massdrop has the update EF 50mm f/1.8 II up for $79 (plus shipping... cost me < $6). So this may save you about $40 off msrp.

You will likely have to login to see it. It is free to sign up, but still annoying. That said, I have been snagging some decent deals from there lately. If you don't have an account, feel free to use the following link and I may get some credit for it.

We went to Wahlburgers

It is not the fanciest and not as overly priced as I thought it would be. It was a nice place for a lazy Saturday afternoon lunch.

It is not a big museum, but it is personal in scope and worth a visit. The staff there are very pleasant and do seem to have a live for the history that this museum represents, even if there are unknowns and holes in the story.
