A Linux-based PC with Bluetooth and WiFi in the size and shape of an SD card? Almost.

http://www.engadget.com/2014/03/31/intel-sd-card-sized-edison-change/
Back at CES, Intel made a big deal of the fact that it could squeeze a Linux-based PC with Bluetooth and WiFi into the size and shape of an SD card.

Is it Web site or website?

I wonder about this every time I mention a site of the web variety, but never enough to look it up until now. It turns out that the AP Stylebook made the change from Web site to website some four years ago.

Illegal to mute your phone's shutter sound?

Did you know that it's illegal to silence the shutter sound on your phone in some countries? And in other countries, manufacturers have disabled the ability to silence the shutter sound?

In South Korea, cell phones are required by law to generate a 64 db shutter sound whenever a picture is taken. On phones sold in Japan, manufacturers have configured the shutter to sound even when the phone is muted. In the U.S., a House bill was introduced several years ago to require cell phone cameras to make a sound when taking a photo ("Camera Phone Predator Alert Act" (H.R.414)). The bill died in committee and was never voted on by the House.

Good point. We sell video surveillance equipment all over the world and there is no such requirement anywhere.

ONe more reason to like Chrome. With as many tabs as I have open, it's nice to know which ones are playing sound!

I love accents

Some of the accents get only a few words (and I have to take someone else's word for their accuracy) .
 
A tour of the British Isles in accents. Now you know.

Feel free to trespass as long as it's not after hours

This sign is near the entrance to my oral surgeon's office. I've always thought the wording was a bit odd, since I've never heard of authorized trespassing.

What's wrong with this picture?

I copied this from a sales quote I received today.

I suppose I shouldn't assume lexicographers are objective and unbiased.

Who knew that peanuts grew on trees? Obviously, Quaker does.

Yeah, they're not even nuts. And I'm pretty sure they grow underground ;-)

Tech Support: Hello, how may I help you?
Caller: Uh, yeah, I just got an email from my toothbrush, but now I can't ping it. I think it's offline.
Tech Support: Have you tried rebooting it?
Caller: Of course, I should have thought of that. Sorry to bother you.
