This was amazing and very helpful!  Gotta keep it bookmarked for future reference :)  The only real feedback I can think of is in a couple of them (like the smoke/fire series) is to have them side by side to see the different settings.  Even without that though, really great work!

Listening to songs you've heard 100's of times before on an amazing pair of headphones is like listening for the first time.

Thanks +beyerdynamic!!

I generally find no humor in jokes or pranks that make fun of people or try to otherwise embarrass or humiliate them....that said...if you do it to yourself, on purpose and repeatedly....I think it's fair game :)

I probably shouldn't have laughed as much as I did....he really was trying to make a point!

One of my biggest tech disappointments is batteries.  Battery tech (sadly) hasn't really changed much.  The biggest thing that pops to mind was Lithium and that was an evolution at best.  Anything that comes along and really revolutionizes batteries/stored energy will (likely) impact a HUGE number of things.  Cars, phones or really anything mobile.  A cell phone that solidly lasts a week?  More?  Or what if it only lasts a day, but we could charge it from empty to full in 3mins?  What would that mean for car/laptop/tablets?

Crazy?  Of course it sounds crazy (and probably is a little) but mostly because our current expectations are just so low that of COURSE dreaming big will sound crazy.

Come on Google, be the genie in the bottle!  Now what about my next 2 wishes....

:)
 
According to a new report, Google has a small team of researchers working on future battery tech for use in its devices. The team or four is reportedly part of Google X, the same part of the company responsible for other Google projects such as its self-driving car and Project Loon. #android

The Aluminum battery concept definitely has some promise - but my hope is with Graphene... fingers crossed!

Really great work all around.  The "punch line" reminded me a bit of the Simpson's episode with the UFO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d228JucDbWw  

And I mean that as a compliment! :)

An interesting, though troublesome read on retirement saving.

My bias out of the way first.  I've always read, and been told, to save.  So admittedly the concept of NOT saving for retirement is very strange and unsettling for me

That said, not saving, at least as far as this article goes, seems half-baked.  (I withdraw that comment if there is a part 2 coming).  

If you don't have any money saved for retirement (and don't plan on working)...a few items spring to mind:

1. Housing expenses?  Whether it's taxes for a house you already own or on-going rent if you don't own a house.

2. I assume in retirement one continues to eat?

3. Travel?  I'm not even talking about vacations yet, I just mean getting around town will require a car (cost of car, insurance, gas) or public transport.

4. Vacation?  Now that you have more time, you can take that month long vacation instead of the 1 week trip, but with no money...you probably won't get far.

5. Medical?  I'm not retired, so I honestly don't know how much medicare does or doesn't cover, but it seems like you'd want to plan for a bit of medical care for your later years?

6. If you have to go to an assisted living home, I don't think they operate for free?  Nor do they offer scholarships as far as I'm aware.

I'm sure there are more items but these were what sprang to mind.  On most topics I try read and gather as much info from as many points of view as possible so I'm not just consuming things that further bolster my own bias but this article didn't address even the simplest of issues.  *shrug*

Forget trying to save enough to outlive your money. Spend it while you can enjoy it.

Ok...200GB on a microSD is AMAZING... but the 200 number is causing the tech nerd in me to twitch.  

EVERYONE knows it goes 128 to 256... what's this "in between" business?

:)
 
Yep, that's one big microSD card.
After launching 128GB microSD cards at MWC 2014, SanDisk today one-upped itself with an even larger card. SanDisk has revealed a 200GB microSD card for mobile phones and tablets. The 200GB SanDisk ...

Been a member for around 10 years now. For most of that time it was fine, standard commercial gym (though sad that the local LA Fitness has more squat racks...but whatever). Sadly, in the past 6 to 12 months things have really gone down hill. WAY too many members. If you have lots of time to wait for machines and equipment, or are able to go between 8pm and 4am, you'll probably be fine, but otherwise I wouldn't bother.

This place deserves all the accolades stated in the other reviews. Fast, professional and inexpensive. If I had to nit-pick, parking COULD be an issue since the whole area doesn't have much. That said, there is a small 20min spot right in front of the building and I was able to park right there. Without hesitation I would use them again and will suggest them to friends.

Before I moved here all of these super low reviews really concerned me. I moved here anyway...and now that I have, I'm not sure exactly why this place is rated so low? First off, I do NOT work for Coral bay...I'm just a resident and have been here for almost 2 years. I'm also not sure if there are older parts of the complex? Is this place perfect? no...but it's not any worse than an average apartment. PROS: - The property is well maintained - I personally have never waited more than one day for a work order to be completed - lots of grassy areas for walking your dog - lots of laundry rooms - decent sized pool (though it DOES get busy over the summer, but it's public!) - parking, while not GREAT...is better here than other places I've lived in San Diego. If you're moving from someplace that has lots of space and plenty of parking...welcome to parking in San Diego :) - Rent isn't "cheap" but not crazy expensive for living 1 mile up the hill to mission bay - the office staff has always been friendly and helpful CONS: - Let's talk about rent again. This is the first place I've rented in San Diego that I'm getting charged for Trash, Water and Sewer. It's not super high, but bumps the rent bill up and many other places these services are included. - I also think if you don't have a dog, you can find other places that are just as nice, or nicer...for less. - the walls are on the thinner side, again...I've seen worse...I've seen better. It's not terrible, but with a noisy neighbor I can understand that complaint. Then again...even nice quiet walls with the "wrong" kind of neighbor...can be a pain. Welcome to the joys of apartment living. - I REALLY don't like how far away everything is. This might be nice if you're married or have a family...but I'd like to be a little closer to some sort of nightlife. - off leash dogs - this isn't so much an issue with the complex itself, but rather people (residents) that only care about them self. (for some reason it always seems to follow, the smaller the dog...the more inconsiderate the owner. mostly.) - poop in the grass. Coral Bay makes available plenty of dog poop receptacles as well as free "poop bags" so I can't really fault Coral Bay for this...many of the residents just don't care. As you see...many of the items on my "Cons" list have less to do with the complex and more to do with uncaring neighbors/residents. Not a pro or con, just something to note. When you go to re-sign your lease, Coral bay allows you to go month to month. I'm mixed on this. On the plus side, I think it's great they even let you DO month to month...many places require longer leases. However, if you WANT to go month to month...it's VERY expensive (if I remember right, I was quoted over $1500/mo) So yeah...if you want to keep your rent reasonable...you need to sign a longer lease, which is kind of a bummer. I hope this was helpful and helps to balance out some of these all negative reviews. I'm not sure where these other reviewers were from, or where they lived prior...but it seems like maybe their expectations were a little too high? While San Diego isn't the worst rental market in the country....it's not cheap to live here...and you pay more for just an "average place." Welcome to living and renting in SD :)
