Fascinating!
Benjamin Franklin spent his mornings naked. Patricia Highsmith ate only bacon and eggs. Marcel Proust breakfasted on opium and croissants. The path to greatness is paved with a thousand tiny rituals (and a fair bit of substance abuse) – but six key rules emerge

This is a great story about how Apple developer the original iPhone. A bit long but if you're interested it gives you a good idea of what it takes to develop a breakthrough like that!
 
+Fred Vogelstein wrote a great article about how the iPhone was brought to life. Features my best friend and neighbor +Andy Grignon. Can't wait to read Fred's book.
An age of darkness ended with a searing light, which shook the earth, and the great device was rendered unto thee.

This is an amazing, sad but also hopeful story
When Will Bruce killed his mother, he believed she was an al Qaeda agent. His father wrested hope from the tragedy -- by seeing that his son finally got treatment. After seven years in a psychiatric hospital, Will is taking his first steps toward freedom.

Tip for HP 14 Chromebook users installing Crouton: don't install the default version of Ubuntu (named Precise), as the Intel HD video drivers for that release are not up to date, support only OpenGL 2 and are therefore very slow when playing games like Minecraft. Instead, install the Quantal version by specifying "-r quantal" when creating your chroot. You will get much better graphics performance.

Please take a moment to think about this, and sign the petition!
 
Doesn’t the stuff you keep online deserve the same protection as the stuff you keep offline? Under a law called ECPA, government agencies in the U.S. can see what you’ve written and stored online without a warrant. Sign this petition to the White House and tell the government to get a warrant!

Great food, and though I know little about Cuba it looks and feels very authentic!

Friendly, but the sushi just wasn't great: too much sauce over the rolls, and the torched ones tasted burnt
