"On May 17th a version of th 9.7-inch model that includes an S-Pen will be available for $349"

About time Samsung decided to update their larger line of Note tablets. Was hoping this would happen soon. 
Samsung has announced the newest addition to its Galaxy Tab lineup, which will ship with two different display size choices at the beginning of next month. The Galaxy Tab A includes a 1.2 GHz quad-...

"if you’re looking at the entry-level model of the Surface 3 and are not interested in the digitizer then the Yoga Tablet 2 is the better value product."

And that's the real difference now, isn't it. I have the highest respect for Chippy and UMPC Portal, but the Surface 3's incredible pen functionality sets it apart. It's not in the same class as the Yoga Tab 2. At all. At least not in my mind.
Everyone that has reviewed the Surface 3 so far has been fairly confident that it can be a laptop replacement. Actually it can't until you buy the keyboard for

Using Panasonic Toughpads running Window 8, although I didn't see that anywhere in the article.
Most calls to the Houston Fire Department are for health problems, not fires. All those medical calls strain the 911 system and make a career in firefighting seem more like a career in health care.

Look what I just added to my reference library. I remember when this book was more than $100. I grabbed it recently from Amazon for $25.

Wonder if it would be possible to embed a nanosensor in an i.v. bag?

With all the recent advances in nanotechnology it seems like this would be in the realm of possibility. Extension of the "lab on a chip" idea, if you will. 

Our current efforts to prevent medications errors with sterile compounds is to ensure accuracy at the point of compounding. While I'd like to say that sterile compounding is 100% accurate, I cannot. We continue to make an unacceptable number of errors in the cleanroom. We're getting better, but we still have a long way to go. 

Programmable nanosensors embedded in i.v. bags might be a solution to preventing another error at the point of care. The sensor could would not only be used to detect whether or not the bag contained the right drug, but also the right concentration, and perhaps even ensure that there are no contaminants in the solution. 

Anyone know if this is even possible? Does the technology exist? Anyone doing any research in this area?

Thinking about replacing my aging Samsung Chromebook. My wife gave it to me as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago. I've used it much more than I thought I would have. 

One thing I'd like to have on my next Chromebook is an outdoor-friendly screen. I find myself reading through emails, my Twitter feed, etc while sitting in the backyard. 

Any recommendations?

Not sure I'm seeing the value here, especially with the Yoga Tablet 2 from Lenovo - also running Android - coming in at about half the price. Similar designs.
You might not think of Dell as a big name in tablets -- not on the level of, say, Apple or Samsung. In fact, though, the once-stodgy PC maker sells one o

This actually makes the night pharmacist position sound interesting…

I received this from a pharmacy recruiter. I thought the description for the night pharmacist job did a good job of putting lipstick on that pig. “The Night Pharmacist employs intellectual, interpersonal and technical skills through the utilization of the pharmacy process to assist patients and customers in achieving maximum health potential.” Full description below. 

Inpatient Pharmacist-Night:
A state-of-the-art Hospital in Northern California (Humboldt County area) is seeking an Inpatient Night Pharmacist.  The Night Pharmacist employs intellectual, interpersonal and technical skills through the utilization of the pharmacy process to assist patients and customers in achieving maximum health potential. This position provides age-appropriate care for infant, child, adolescent, adult, and geriatric patients. The Pharmacist works the night shift- 7 on/ 7 off, 10-hour day.

I got my start as a night pharmacist at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital in Salinas, CA. To date, it may have been the worst job I’ve ever had as a pharmacist. It’s right up there with dealing with the drive-through 16 hours a day at some crappy pharmacy retail chain.
 
Night pharmacists have a difficult, and thankless job. Most times they’ll have a technician, but are ultimately responsible for everything pharmacy related in the entire hospital. That includes ADU stockouts, codes, new start and follow-up pharmacokinetics, new order entry/verification, and so on. It’s brutal. During my two years as a night pharmacist I aged ten. I shudder at the memory.
