The factory, not just R&D, can be on a desktop
3D printing is certainly a hot topic and it hasn't even hit its stride. The machines are getting smaller, more accurate & cheaper. We're seeing less toy/protoypes and more "real products" - even a life-size robot ! But to make a final product, you need more...

One big missing piece is rapid prototyping of metal parts and a cheap assembly robot.

The best Windows 8.1 (desktop) features captured in animated Gifs, nice one +Gizmodo!
Windows 8.1 just got an update. It's rolling out automatically starting today, but you can also grab it in the Windows Store. The changes are mostly tiny but also great. In fact they're so small and intuitive that you might even miss a few, so we've wrangled our favorites into this series of handy GIFs.

The best feature is you can make the metro UI go away? :3

Apparently MJ was way more awesome musically than I thought. He composed his own songs and beats then performed the acapellas to musicians to play for the produced tracks - not loops, the whole song, composed overnight, in the space between his ears. An example composition included in this tumblog.

After writing code for the first time in a long time that felt mission critical... and with the news of all these bugs flying around (heartbleed!) I have found myself re-asking:

+Justen Robertson , agreed, in particular regarding the language requirements, some languages are more likely to allow the programmer to make critical mistakes than others (e.g. memory management is error prone).

Brace yourselves, Sharknado 2: The second one is coming. I actually enjoyed the first more than I expected...
Dear Readers, If any of you are reading this from New York City, quietly (and quickly) pack up your computer, say goodbye to your loved ones and head for the hills because there is a SHARKNADO happening in your city right now! Okay, maybe a rea...

+Gus Class They do. I read an article on The Asylum. And a huge part of their business model is that they fill out just "additional content" for Netflix's recommendation engine. Netflix doesn't care so much that people actually watch it or like it, but that if they watch a movie, there are similar ones it can recommend. And so they'll buy these by the handful.

The new profile view count explained.
 
Several people have been asking me about the new "view count" number which shows up on your profile, and I've been answering on a bunch of threads, so let me give you the key answers in one place.

What does this number count? This is total views on your profile, your posts, your photos, and your videos. 

What constitutes a "view?" For your profile, when someone goes to view your profile page. For other things, it's when they look at it -- e.g., when one of your posts shows up on someone's screen. (That's because this is how most people read posts: showing up in a stream, without clicking on it explicitly) Looking at your hovercard doesn't count.

Is this related to +1's, reshares, etc.? Only in that someone who +1'ed your post also probably saw it. You can already see counts for those on individual posts, etc., and before today you could see view counts for each photo if you looked carefully at the one-up view -- now you can see that for everything.

If someone reshares my post, does that count? Yes, since a viewer is seeing your content. Ditto if someone sees your post through an "Alice +1'ed this," through a post embedded on a page, or any other way that someone encounters it.

I don't want to show this on my profile! You can hide this by going to your settings page. Go to plus.google.com/settings and look for "Show how many times your profile and content have been viewed."

This seems strange: Some people seem to have a lot more views relative to their number of followers than others. Is something broken? Not at all. Some people have a lot of followers but don't engage with them well, while other people engage amazingly with a smaller group. 

I want to find out more. Check out the Help Center article at http://goo.gl/8BjroH .

Live like an egg and keep it level with solid slang from the 20s. It's the bees knees.

This place is rather dreary, if you're at the MTA, odds are you're having a bad time. They should put their hours on the web site. The MTA is open from: Monday to Friday 8am - 5pm
