How the hell do you store a Panzer in your basement for 70 years and have nobody notice it?

Police in Germany have uncovered a 45-ton tank, a torpedo, and other illegal weaponry dating back to WWII in the cellar of a villa in Heikendorf.

My newest review: the +FuseChicken Titan and Titan Loop.  You'll pay more for them, but you won't find a tougher lightning cable.
 
Lightning Cables have typically lacked one thing: ruggedness. You can get a protection case for your iPhone, but it’s hard to find a protection cable. Well, Fuse Chicken has come to our rescue with the Titan, a full length cable Lightning to USB Cable…
Lightning Cables have typically lacked one thing: ruggedness. You can get a protection case for your iPhone, but it’s hard to find a protection cable. Well, Fuse Chicken has come to our rescue with the Titan, a full length cable Lightning to USB Cable with a tough, but flexible industrial grade steel outer covering. If …

Great article on the development/ economic issues for development of apps.  Yes, it harder to work on and the Android doesn't support devs by paying for apps.  It's getting better with Android 5.0 and above, but there are issues inherent in Android that still need to be sorted out.

http://www.droid-life.com/2015/06/24/why-is-android-still-the-second-platform-developers-work-on/
Every year we see the same promise: this is the year that Android-first development will become a reality. At the same time we see big companies like Instagram repeatedly introduce new apps that are iOS-only. Android has been able to tout more market share than iOS for quite some time, ...

I like this guy.  Honda's cars have been boring of late, even for Honda.  They need some spicing up of their lineup.

http://www.autonews.com/article/20150706/COPY01/307069939/new-honda-ceo-hachigo-wants-exciting-cars-maximum-capacity-use
Honda's new CEO, Takahiro Hachigo, aims to reboot the automaker by developing more exciting cars, steering clear of numerical targets and maximizing use of the company's overseas production to soak up global overcapacity.

Yeah, we're lazy assholes.  Between the 4th of July holiday and Patrice's impending move, we decided to take this week off from the show.

Story
Tagline
My here opinions are my own and don't reflect the views of anyone I'm employed by.
Introduction
Who am I?  I am a professional with skills in writing, PR, and customer service.  I am highly skilled, intelligent, and learn new skills extremely quickly. I am humble, patient, and take direction well, but can operate independently effectively and I work well with others. I am a person who cares deeply about the job I do and creating a positive outcome for my clients.

Who am I?  A product of the 21st century with my roots in the 20th.  I'm a lifelong technology fan, most of it on Macs, former hardcore gamer, and guitar and auto geek.  My other hobbies include history (especially military, aeronautical, and maritime), science (both physical and biological), philosophy, and when I need to decompress, you can find on a trail somewhere amongst the trees.

You can find me writing for technology sites, co-hosting Deconstruct, and being a semi-frequent guest on technology podcasts.
Bragging rights
I hit .700 in little league one year. I'm not kidding.

This place is a technology mecca. KEF Speakers, HUGE curved UHD TV, 30 UpDesks, 3 robots, a giant psycho wall... I mean cyclorama. Just watch out for the Kreepy Kitty and the dynamic prank duo of Gio and Kubby. Also there's a Chihuahua visiting the place which doesn't serve you Taco Bell. If you're Dallas, and by Dallas I mean Farmers Branch, you have no excuse not to visit.
