Interesting stuff. Here's the takeaway from all this: healthcare is slow to adopt new technology, and the only way to force the issue is to make it a regulatory requirement. 

I'm loathe to say that because I think regulatory requirements are killing healthcare - especially pharmacy - but ultimately it's true. We've done it to ourselves by refusing to move forward.

This is my favorite quote in the entire piece...

"A product design engineer felt that Apple was entrenched with "old white guys" with "questionable moral standings.""

I think Apple is built on "questionable moral standings" from the top down. Seriously, this company appears evil from the outside, looking in.

Intriguing machine. Love the flip design, and for $250 it's tough not to want one. 
The Asus Chromebook Flip is proof a premium Chromebook with a touchscreen that also converts into a tablet can be sold on the cheap.

This is an interesting an thought provoking read from John. 

I believe that most EHR vendors use MU as an excuse not to innovate, but after reading the comment from Nick Orlowski (bottom of post), and thinking about John's thoughts a bit more, I may alter my thoughts a bit. 

On one hand, I know that pharmacy has been strangled by regulatory compliance, leading to projects getting ignored for months or years as resources are shifted. On the other hand, I remember being constantly frustrated as an informatics pharmacist working in a hospital because I felt that we could continue to implement new technology and comply with new regulations, i.e. we could do both.

All good things coming from the Redmond camp. Looking forward to Windows 10, although I never really had a problem with Windows 8.

Interesting news. I'm not an audiophile so I really don't have much interest in this particular device, but it's nice nonetheless. 

I tell you what I would like to see is a dedicated music device, i.e. smaller, with fewer bells and whistles, and long battery life. I like music at the gym, but don't like walking around with my S5. It's simply too big to lug around the gym.

Chronic pain can have brutal effects on a patients mental state. It literally wears them out mentally. 

""High levels of depression and anxiety are common in patients with chronic lower back pain," said Dr. Ajay Wasan, study author and professor of anesthesiology and psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in a statement."
Taking on back pain with opioids may not be the best idea for those suffering from psychiatric disorders.
