Billionaire philanthropist Warren Buffett controls a mobile-home empire that promises low-income borrowers affordable houses. But all too often, it traps those owners in high-interest loans and rapidly depreciating homes.

Good News, Everyone.
Today, the W3C published Pointer Events as a final Recommendation standard. This journey began a little over 2 years ago when we first submitted our proposal to the W3C for a common event model across pointing input devices. Since then, the spec has evolved and improved with the collaboration of ...

Is this a thing to support? Or are there better options out there?
 
Comrades!

I need your help spreading the word about this project. The Kickstarter is past the halfway mark and is running out of steam. Even if you are not into DIY computing, getting the word out to more people can only help :)

MONOLIT is raising funds for Mono - The future of DIY devices on Kickstarter! Avoid stranded projects. Mono is an Arduino-compatible programmable gadget with touch display, wireless and battery.

In other strange news for the day: Tramadol is a prescription pain reliever (a centrally acting atypical opioid analgesic, to be precise). While it's normally manufactured synthetically, a year ago, researchers discovered that you could actually extract it from the roots of a kind of tree which grows in Cameroon.

The bizarre discovery: it turns out that it's not a natural product, after all. Local farmers had been feeding it to their cattle (as well as to themselves) in such high doses that their urine contaminated the soil with enough Tramadol that the plants were taking it up into their root system in harvestable quantities.

It's not even clear why they're giving it to the cattle -- apparently there's just a sense that it makes them happier. I suspect that's a euphemism for "the cattle were stoned out of their minds." Also, given that this was coming out in such quantities in their urine, I'm kind of shocked that these cattle still have livers or kidneys. 

So yes, this story basically boils down to "the farmers were all high as kites, and started giving drugs to the cows too, until even the trees ended up full of narcotics."

o.O

Via +rone.

Pretty nice, good workaround for when you are working with login forms that are built dynamically. +Nick Fenwick
 
The Credential Management¹ API is a work-in-progress and experimental Web feature we can already start to play with in Chrome Dev Channel. Its goal is to enable a website to request a user’s credentials in order to sign them in, and to help the browser correctly store user credentials for future use.

Want to see it in action? First, enable the experimental Credential Manager API at chrome://flags/#enable-credential-manager-api and restart Chrome. Then, go to https://credential-manager-api-test.appspot.com/ and start filling some random data about your username, password and click the first button to simulate a "Sign In" which will tell Chrome to save these credentials for later if you agree.
When you click on the "Step 2" button, Chrome will show you all credentials for this website you could use to sign in.
If you're not going to use this furthermore, I'd recommend you disable this flag for security reasons.

The Credential Management API is not limited to username/password pairs. It is also intended to work with websites that support federated identity providers. Go read the WIP W3C draft if you want to read more about this exciting Web API.

This is an awesome idea.
Postcodes as GPS coordinates encoded in variable detail. The more characters you provide, the more detailed the post code becomes.
The Open Postcode is an opensource geolocation code for everywhere in Ireland; language neutral, short, free, non-profit, logical, accurate, verifiable, and democratic. Used for navigation, research, databases, statistics, etc.
