NAS - Networked Attach Storage: A specialized computer attached to a network whose sole role is to provide access to personal files or data.  Typically it runs within your own LAN, however they can be set up to be accessed through the Internet.  It has the advantage that your files are stored on your own device.

Cloud storage - Using a hosted storage such as MEGA, Google Drive, DropBox, etc. where your files are stored somewhere on the Internet, accessible through an app, web login or remote login.  It has the advantage that your data is accessible anywhere and they provide the necessary resources for scalability, power, device security, etc - that is what you pay for,

Hey +Irene Yung - looks like the +Nissan Leaf won't be getting longer range anytime soon. Might have to bite the bullet on this one depending on car.

For the majority of my computing needs, I don't need a full-fledged desktop.
 
The Desktop is Dead

Well, maybe. And I speak as a devoted Chromebook user. However, I'm also a computer sciences and physics teacher and there are applications that simply aren't evolved sufficiently for mobile and/or web only.

I hope the government does some serious soul searching around LGN, greenhouse gas emissions and the environment, rather than just legislate things away to make it easier for them to get it out of the ground.  They've been warned and the environmental impacts of fracking is known and well documented.  
VANCOUVER — British Columbia Environment Ministry staff have warned their minister that the province’s dreamed-of liquefied natural gas industry poses some big challenges with greenhouse gas emissions. Internal briefing notes prepared for Environment Minister Mary Polak since she took office last year and obtained by The Canadian Press, single out methane emissions for concern.

Gaming the system to their benefit and to the detriment of everyone else.
 
quote: No one wants to mess with the big hedge funds and private equity firms. After all, any one of them could buy up The New York Times in a heartbeat and turn it into a cooking magazine. And, I can tell you from personal experience these guys are touchy — when first writing about the John Paulson Abacus deal, his lawyers threatened to sue me.

They don’t want the public to know how they earn their money. They want us to continue to believe that they are just smarter than the rest of us — that they earn it fair and square — and are shrewd risk takers whose work makes America great. To smooth it all over, they donate wings to public libraries, endow chairs at universities and even donate to environmental causes. And, of course, they’re not shy about buying political influence from both political parties.

All of this is because they fear we will ask the most fundamental question: How much value do they really produce for the US economy?
In their heart of hearts, they know the answer — not much.
Hedge funders make billions, not millions, and they do it not by running businesses, but by siphoning wealth away from companies, consumers, students and governments.

I've never fully agreed with the term "digital footprint".  Footprints can (for the most part) be cleaned up or wiped away.  I like talk to my students about "digital tattoos".  Easy to put on, but not only do they stick with you, they're much more difficult to get rid of.  Not impossible, but very VERY difficult.

Another ugly side of war that is often forgotten.  These women are not only taken and violated by the opposing force, but are often shunned, disgraced and made outcasts by their own people.
It was a late fall morning, around the tenth lunar month. The Year of the Dragon dwindled. Huang Youliang left to harvest rice outside her village on the island of Hainan, the largest of a tropical archipelago that sprawls into the South China Sea off the coast of Guangdong. Once a place where out-of-favour officials were exiled by the emperor, Hainan is now the touristy Hawaii of the People’s Republic of China, one of its special economic zones.

It's the PNE! Playland is always fun. Plenty of rides for the little ones and classic rides like the old wooden roller coaster for the big ones. The Star Trek exhibit is neat for trekkies, but photos not allowed in the exhibit. Lots of costumes, models and facts about Star Trek. Even have a timeline to put all the different series in sequence. Can have a long line to get in, so get there early. At least they show Star Trek movie while waiting.
