I guess it isn't surprising that the Internet of Things leads to more and more things to throw away... Any chance there could be a "Come and collect all this packaging for recycling" Dash Button, +Amazon.com ? (Maybe something you could work on,  +Michael Zuliani ?!)

Yeah, some breakfast will hit the spot after a walk on the beach. Anything beyond that is in the murky future.

Haven't we moved beyond specs with these flagship devices? What about the important stuff that actually makes  difference day in and day out?

I love my S5 - water proof enough that I don't have to worry, and having a second battery so I can go from low charge to 100% in 45 seconds, anywhere. Real people don't care about 4MP vs 5MP a day or so after they get their latest and greatest phone.
photo from:  The Verge Oh, how I wish I could be there to play with these new toys. Seeing as they shared the same day for an announcement, I thought I'd share space on an article and compare them spec by spec. All the inform...

we are beyond that, I like to believe, but unfortunately I have no other way to compare them than by their specs.

I haven't heard about the waterproofing on the S6.  I'm guessing it isn't.

They hinted that the finger print reader was at the back, that's about it.

How many times will you watch it, trying to get your mind to see what you know it really is...

I may be the last person on Georgian Bay with a windsurfer... the wind is perfect for it today. Thanks +Kelly Hayward for loaning me the board.

The wind was just right for the first time out in a couple of years! I think my arms and lower back will be tired tomorrow, but well worth it.

Taking a break from the snowshoes, enjoying the quiet (OK, and using my phone).

It has, +Michael Zuliani​ but still a ton of clean, white, snow.

Thanks +Dan Scott​ the wind was crazy for a couple of days, making the lake dramatic, and the forest even more calm in contrast.

Hi Oliver and the rest of the class, I thought I’d introduce myself. I’m David Sky - I work in software development at IBM in Toronto (but I don’t speak for them). I have an undergrad degree in AI from the University of Toronto (back in the 90’s!). I was really impressed with the Stanford Machine Learning MOOC that I completed back in 2011.

I’m looking forward to learning more about Developmental AI in the #idealmooc  - not so much for physical-world applications, but to understand how they could be used in software situations. When I try to come up with an example of what I mean it often seems like a traditional machine learning algorithm would work well in the example, so I’ve got a lot to learn about the strengths of Developmental AI, apparently.

Interesting, +Olivier georgeon and I'm certainly looking forward to delving into that in greater depth.
