Nike to kill off Nike+ FuelBand.

Without a doubt, Tim Cook remaining on Nike’s board while Apple preps its own fitness-focused device had to be awkward. Seems like Nike may decide to exit that business and instead partner with Apple on such a device… on a personal note, I really disliked the fuelband as a product. 
The sportswear company has decided that only software has a future in Nike’s technology vision. That means cutting the FuelBand, including a slimmer version planned for the fall.

Come ready.
They don’t walk like they own the world. They walk like they don’t care who does. They wear their confidence by embracing it with humbleness. They are never the chess piece. They are the chess

"You don't set out to build a wall. You don't say 'I'm going to build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that's ever been built.' You don't start there. You say, 'I'm going to lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid. You do that every single day. And soon you have a wall."  - Will Smith

Slightly ashamed and slightly proud of this. 

Damn you, Google.

UCLA researchers have built an app that lets users take pictures of test samples and upload them for remote diagnostic analysis. The system can already perform dozens of different tests, including those for malaria, prostate cancer and HIV. The work effectively removes the need for a nearby brick-and-mortar laboratory to analyze samples.

The French word “entrepreneur” means “one who undertakes.” French economist Jean-Baptiste Say described an entrepreneur to be one who “shifts economic resources out of an area of lower and into an area of higher productivity and greater yield.” In 1934 Austrian economist Joseph Schumpeter expanded on this and described entrepreneurs as innovators who shatter the status quo and use creative destruction to establish new products and services.

Wow, seriously, I was an intrigued skeptic when I heard people raving about the pad thai here. After all Pad Thai is such a cheap staple of Thai cuisine that few restaurants bother putting much effort or care into it. I love thai food and have eaten and cooked pad thai many a times but this hands down was the best I've ever had.
Food: ExcellentDecor: GoodService: Very good

I was saying "I want to live here" several times during the visit. The room was nice and seemed clean. I'd say the only downside was that I could hear others getting up in the morning and the bed seemed chilled and too soft for me. However, I enjoyed every other aspect of the room I was in at a great price. I suspect that prices will go up during game nights as it's right across from Safeco field.

I have never met a higher class of people than these guys. IT consulting isn't just what they do. It's a way of life.

One word: amazing! It's been since I've gone to a japanese steak house, this has been a favorite by far.

I stayed here because of its proximity to the UW campus. Its exterior doesn't scream "cool interior" as is seen in the pics on the website. But don't worry, once you enter the building, it really does look like the pics! The staff was really nice, the public bathrooms (well, the conference level restrooms) are clean. The rooms are so nicely decorated and have great new amenities such as the flat screen tv and iPod radio-docking stations. There is a cool chaise lounge and big bed. Really, it looks like the pictures on the website!
