One of the most accurate descriptions of why I am proud to have voted (well, caucused) for Bernie Sanders.

I want this thing for the sole purpose of sticking it under raised floors to trace cable runs.
 
It bleeps. It bloops. It lights up, shines lasers, monitors your home and plays (or terrorizes) your pets.

I think I may have just found my new keyring in a box of old stuff.

Yep. That was a nice quick distraction. Back to Slack.

I think this is just a tech demo for Google Assistant.

A lakefront home for <$600k? Sounds like a fantastic deal. Is this supposed to be a negative article? Seattle prices may have my perception skewed.
U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, the tribune of working people, has bought his third house for nearly $600,000.

The inability of Faux to understand that the income inequality issue is not about people earning $250k / yr. It's those "earning" 2mil, 12mil, 20 mil. Exec pay is out of control.

I've said it before... Seattle crime is weird. Some guy climbed a tree and is throwing apples at the rescue workers trying to get him down.

SEATTLE - Police and firefighters are responding to a report of a man stuck at the very top of Seattle's iconic giant Sequoia tree next to the Macy's store downtown.Crews brought a ladder truck to the scene, at the corner of Fourth Avenue and Stewart Stree

I have to say, the NVIDIA Shield has been exceeding my expectations since I got it earlier this week.

I've been an avid Chromecast user since it first came out, and even upgraded to the newest version last year. The Chromecast is still a solid device, and it is amazing for the price; but the Shield just works so much smoother.
Connections are instantaneous, and I never realized that fast-forwarding and rewinding in Plex was supposed to happen as soon as you hit the button... no more "click -10s, wait 5s, click it again" - it just snaps right to the point you tell it to. On top of that, the HDMI CEC support is top-notch, even turning off the TV after it reaches the sleep time for the device. The remote that you can get for free right now is also really well thought out, and the ability to plug headphones into the remote is just cool.
On top of it all, the GameStream support has been fun to play with. I'm looking forward to using it a bit more in the future, but has worked great for the brief time that I've put into it.

TL;DR, if you're in the market for a good set-top media box, NVIDIA Shield is awesome. If you want to save $, Chromecast is still awesome as well.
