Convolutional Neural Nets

This article highlights the awesomeness that is the Google Translate app (seriously, if you haven't used it, you will be blown away). I used it the other day to live translate a Spanish lasagna recipe for my wife (she doesn't speak Spanish), and she could see the words on the recipe in clear English.

What a time to be alive.

Nothing quite like getting a major production push done just before end of business on a Friday.

Tag Heuer Smartwatch w/ Android

+TAG Heuer makes, in my opinion, some of the nicest-looking watches on the planet. Their design team is superb. If they can come up with a marriage of Android and Tag that both 1) doesn't ruin the Tag design; and 2) makes the "smartphone" part useful, then I can't wait for this!

To me, the Apple Watch design is extremely tacky and is meant to attract iLovers that will probably buy anything Apple-related anyway. But a smartwatch from a watchmaker like Tag Heuer will likely be made to attract people that like watches, and want to integrate their smartphone capabilities into it while still enjoying their watch.

If they do this right, and the watch still screams "Tag Heuer", I think I will definitely be jumping into the smartwatch segment finally.

+Guy-Robert Kernisant and what I'm saying is that that concept ain't ready for prime time... Transparent pled is half the battle, then there's touch and then there's strength. That's three halves :)

Bought a Cherry MX switch sampler, and managed to use this very solid cardboard Tablo TV box as my makeshift keyboard for testing the keys!

SpeedTest Prioritization?

I've long suspected that ISPs prioritize traffic to the popular speed testing websites, and while this isn't exactly a definitive test, it's definitely adding even more suspicion than before.

Since last week, my Internet connection has been frequently slow with AT&T U-Verse. I only get a max of 18 Mbps where I live, but it's been significantly worse than usual. So, I decided to test with SpeedTest, and sure enough, my connection is amazing (according to them). Apparently, I'm getting almost the theoretical maximum, somehow.

That seemed really suspicious to me, since it did not reflect my experience. So I immediately ran a test with Internet Health Test, and the results were much different. Now that feels more like the speeds I've been getting lately.

So what is it? Is AT&T (and maybe other ISPs) deceptively prioritizing speed testing websites?

Note: I specifically included the entire screenshot, so you can see that the tests were done one after the other (the Internet Health Test took about 3 minutes).

Introduction
Coder by day... and basically a coder the rest of the day too. I'm a math & science lover, I love to learn, and I question virtually everything (because why not?). I'm a big open source guy... if you're gonna hand someone a piece of software, then give them the code :)

Wouldn't science be so much easier if God would just hand over the source?
