I've been steering clear of the Apple bashing for a while as its not very constructive but sometimes something has to be said.

This time the Apple are suing 20 million because an artist sang at a hurricane Katrina charity concert and they don't want his music to be available anywhere except through them.
 
Apple Music declared war on rival streaming service, Jay Z’s Tidal, over Drake’s appearance at a charity concert to benefit kids affected by Hurricane Katrina. Tidal faces being sued for $20 million if it streamed Apple artist Drake’s brief two-song appearance at the Friday night show.

#scumbagapple 
Lawyers were called because a charity concert he's performing at was being streamed live via Tidal — and Drake has an exclusive deal with Apple Music.

It looks like Jay Z has had a bad 6 months? Everyone seems to want to sue him! :-)

It turns out my Volvo supports the bluetooth headset protocol but not the bluetooth stereo protocol, this is fine as I could use the 3.5mm audio jack but it meant I couldn't pause or skip the music without picking up my phone.

So what I did was 3D print a set of headset controls which directly swap in place of the coin holder and plug in between the phone and audio in on the car.

Yep that looks like the same sort of values...

Wow, great new case with built in TFT screen and space for a HDD so you can run CloudShell which is a NAS with cloud capabilities.

Video here:

This is the case and screen ($39):

And you need an XU4 which is similar to a Raspberry Pi 2 but faster because it has 8x 2GHz cores and Gigabit Ethernet ($74):

Edit: I just thought, you probably can't boot directly off the HDD so you will need to get a small micro SD card (2GB or more) to boot off, or alternatively one of the eMMC flash memory modules which are much faster.
The Cloudshell for XU4 is an affordable DIY Network Attached Storage (NAS) Solution to create your own personal cloud! It includes a color LCD console display on the front and has room for a 2.5inch HDD/SSD along with the XU4 board inside the CloudShell. The CloudShell is a great way to assemble ...

You wouldn't believe what people are doing with 256mb, 512mb and 1Gb Raspberry Pis then ;)

Another good reason not to use Facebook, if you didn't have enough already!

It looks like an excellent way to cripple your own bank by ruling out those who could make you a lot more money :-) in fact I think it'll work in reverse to this "click bait" at the moment the banks need people to borrow like mad and in future being able to keep an eye on potential customers will make you an even bigger target rather than not getting money to borrow at all.

iTunes is Illegal Under UK Copyright Law - https://torrentfreak.com/itunes-is-illegal-under-uk-copyright-law-150805/ ah, #copyright, don't you just love it?
The High Court recently overturned private copying exceptions introduced last year by the UK Government, once again outlawing the habits of millions of citizens. The Intellectual Property Office today explains that ripping a CD in iTunes is no longer permitted, and neither is backing up your computer if it contains copyrighted content.

I'm quite chuffed with this for a non destructive mod. See the custom 3D printed headset controls I made and fitted behind the hand brake/parking brake in my C70.

The reason for them is my Volvo supports the bluetooth headset protocol but not the bluetooth stereo protocol. This is not a big problem as I can use the 3.5mm audio jack but it did mean I couldn't pause or skip the music without picking up my phone.

So what I did was 3D print a set of headset controls which directly swap in place of the coin holder and plug in between the phone and audio in on the car.

+Richard Karlson I used 123D Design which is a free app. I have no idea about the Microsoft software, they are new to the game so I would be surprised if its as good as the software offered by companies that have been doing it for decades but who knows.

Lovely designs for both machines, I particularly like the larger 2 player one.
 
Lovely design with a retro-like feel :)
Retro gadget maker Love Hulten recently showed off two of his latest creations, both of which are gaming systems. The PE358 is a Nintendo emulator inspired by the Game Boy Advance SP, while the Battlecade is a kickass two-player arcade machine inspired by the likes of Battleship.

Yup, it is the big one that takes the cake. Excellent idea.

Been there done that. Issuing the right command (such as reboot) on the wrong environment… as root user :'( Via http://devopsreactions.tumblr.com/

Wow, just wow; a new 16TB SSD from Samsung!
 
Samsung announces 16TB SSD | ZDNet

'Not just the world's highest capacity SSD, but the world's highest capacity drive of any type. The PM1633 uses Samsung's new 48 layer V-NAND, itself a technical tour-de-force, and represents a new thrust in flash storage beyond performance: capacity.

[...]

They announced several breakthroughs:

The 48 layer, 256Gbit (32GB), vertical NAND flash chip.
The world's largest - almost 16TB - drive.
The world's fastest - 1,000,000 IOPS - drive.
A 2U box with over 700TB of capacity - roughly 15PB in a single rack.
And a continuation of their intelligent drive initiative.
...'

There's no price yet but it does have a model number PM1633. But basically what this is all about is Samsungs new multi layer NAND flash which is going to drive SSD prices right down and sizes right up. At the moment a 1TB SSD costs like £230, I've no doubt that will soon be £100 and 2 and 4TB drives hit the market shortly.
