Power your entire home with solar panels and a $3500 Tesla Powerwall

I'm curious to see if this gets electric companies in a panic. As someone who grew up in Hawaii where there was only one electric company with no competition and when there was a power outage we were the last to be taken care of (I lived in what's considered the country), this is an awesome alternative from +Tesla Motors​. I'll be really curious to see how popular this ends up being and who ends up trading in their traditional power system for the Powerwall.

Yeah. That's one of the problems I have with my monitor is that it's a 16:10 aspect ratio - leaves me with those bars :(

In case you're wondering why your Nexus 6 feels so darn fast and smooth on Android 5.1, besides all the improvements on ART and possibly a lot of code cleaning and optimizations on the Framework - the device is now running full quad-core mode all the time which helps tremendously because the Kernel task scheduler can distribute the workload through all these cores so you'll get the perception that the device is not hanging anymore.

They also disabled the built-in thread migration boost routines - if you don't know what this is about it's a driver made by Qualcomm that receives a notifier from the task scheduler when one thread migrated from one cpu core to another, and to minimize perceived lag it boosted the destination core to the same, or greated, frequency than the origin core:

1 - thread moves from cpu0 to cpu2
2 - driver is notified
3 - reads the current cpu0 frequency
4 - if cpu2 current frequency is less than cpu0's read frequency it boosts cpu2 to that freq, or, if the origin freq is lower than the threshold (which is 1.7GHz by default AFAIK) it boosts to that threshold value.
5 - the boosted frequency on cpu2 stays there for at least 20ms

These migrations can occur dozens of times per-second. One of the things that I did on FK was disabling all this to conserve battery (and we don't really need all that boosting with this chip).
I'm sure Google did the math and a lot of power measurements and found out that the gains outgain the losses, so they disabled this, and I applaud them.

So these two changes balance themselves out, and I can imagine that 100% stock users will be pleasantly surprised by the improved battery life.

Unfortunately we're still dealing with full 3 second cpu boost on touch events... we don't need long of a boost, specially at 1.5GHz... Comon Google.

I don't know what other improvements they did on the Kernel, the source is not up yet, this is all I know for now.

We hit 1,000 dollars a month on Patreon.com and why that matters
https://www.patreon.com/EricaGriffin
Wow, this is so awesome! Thank you to all of my Patreon supporters! We have reached the $1,000 a month mark!

This really means a lot to me, as it is a HUGE help to keep my channel running! People really have no idea how much. Today I found out that Google is pressing down hard on content creators using 3rd party advertisers and sponsors on YouTube to fund their videos. It seems that YouTube doesn't want people using 3rd party sponsors at all (at least this seems to be the goal) and they now banned the ability for YouTubers to include any sponsor graphics or logos inside of paid product placements. What a disaster. https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/154235

 I have been trying to step away from the paid sponsor approach with using Patreon for the same reason that YouTube seems to not want to let partners make such sponsored ads. It's distracting. No one wants to see double ads and sometimes ads conflict. But the content creators do need the help or they can't create. (Never-mind pointless, trolling comments about how content creation is not a real job. That's severely short sided and not helpful.)

The issue is that Adsense earnings are declining as more and more people join YouTube and even Google is seeing that they didn't make the money they thought they would with YouTube. So they want and feel that they need to steal back some of the revenue that their content creators are making through 3rd parties. "Graphical title cards, including the use of sponsor logos and product branding, are prohibited unless there is a full Google media buyout on the Partner content by the sponsor."

So any help on Patreon is just awesome to help me fund this channel so that I can continue to do what I love and continue to deliver you the best content I can. I'm always trying to find ways to continue to fund this project and I don't give up.
Patreon is empowering a new generation of creators. Support and engage with artists and creators as they live out their passions!
