When is a Cover Better Than the Original?

When the original artist says so.  Depeche Mode's Andrew Fletcher reportedly loved Failure's 1997 cover of their song "Enjoy the Silence" so much that he actually prefers their cover over DP's original.

Take a 4:18 break in your day to take in this epic (sorry, there's really no better word) cover of the 1990 smash hit single.

Ten Years Ago We Watched the Horror Unfold

I hope I never see a day-after-Christmas like 2004.

Banda Aceh (Indonesia) (AFP) - 13:40 GMT - AFP IS CLOSING THIS LIVE REPORT - on remembering the 220,000 people who died on Boxing Day a decade ago when an earthquake off the coast of Indonesia triggered devastating tsunami waves, which ripped through coastal areas of the Indian Ocean in one of the worst natural disasters in human history.

After all, any possible emergency inside a crowded building will allow for 15 seconds of idle thumb-twirling...

Drones Use On-Board Image Processing to Win Competition

Drone enthusiasts compete every year to be the first team to find Stranded Joe in the open countryside, but so far no one's ever succeeded. Until this year.

The key to finding the human needle-in-the-haystack?  On-board image processing using pattern recognition.

(Seems like all the fun happens in Australia.)

Just When I Thought Google Might Know Too Much About Me...

...they go and prove that they, in the immortal words of Sgt. Schultz, "know naaaaathing..."  Better luck next time, Google.  :)

I noticed the same some time ago. It really puts people's fear of Google's data mining in perspective. Me? Not worried at all.

iOS 8.1.3: Major Bugs Left Unfixed

With the latest iOS release, Apple has chosen to ignore the list of bugs introduced 4 months ago that render most still-supported devices (like my iPad) almost unusable.

Since updating to iOS, my iPad has intermittent WiFi drops, laggy touch response (like 2-3 seconds to respond to a button touch), half the battery life, and more crashes.

Should you update to 8.1.3?  I used to says "yes, right away" to any update; now my post-iOS-8 guideline is "if it doesn't address performance problems or add value to the feature set, skip it".

#apple   #ios #iPad  
The sixth update to iOS 8 still ignores its biggest problems.

Where's The Party?

Looking to bring in the New Year with an off-the-hook party tomorrow night?  How about hitting Dubai with Pharrell, or midnight fireworks in a glass capsule high about Las Vegas? 

My vote: Hit the 6-hour party at the Sydney Oprah House, then at 2am climb aboard your party's private Gulfstream G550 for LA, where I will then bring in the New Year again.  Twice as awesome.

Say what you want about Big Ten football... it's tough to argue with the quality of Big Ten basketball.

Of all the sushi places in Central Ohio - and I've been to a lot of them - Mr. Sushi is in the top tier. Gotta award that 5 stars.

My wife and I stayed at the Porch House several years ago for a perfect getaway overnight. We are not big on the social aspect of B&B's, and that wasn't a problem as the house served as our home base for our busy schedule. We didn't want to miss out on the delicious breakfast, though, and it was fun to meet the other guests (briefly) before heading out. Location is perfect for bike treks (right on the bike trail access) or walking to dinner in town. Less than 2 blocks from most things, a little more for Denison events. Highly recommended.
