Nice write up by my brother.
If you’re running infrastructure on AWS, CloudFormation can be a great provisioning option for versioned, software-defined infrastructure. Whether you’re using bare templates or a wrapper like Trop…

Having a dedicated chat in Allo for Google Assistant is a little... je ne sais quoi. I mean, before, when I talked to my phone, I was just using a voice interface. Now Google really wants me to have a conversion with my phone.

Apple patents a bag
If patenting a plant pot and the idea of putting plants around a table wasn't enough for you this week Apple have patented "a bag". I'm so glad they invented the bag, I don't know we managed to carry things without their help.

Silicon Valley is the capital of disruption. It’s the epicenter of the innovation earthquake. It’s the leader of the new way forward. And Apple, as the industry’s Think Different darling, is at the forefront of the revolution. So much so, in fact, that it decided a patent a sweet bag.

Zero knowledge "Slack" from SpiderOak? Interesting..
 
Looks great, maybe I'll give it a try.
Create teams and #channels. Create teams for your company, your family or your friends. Then, create project-specific channels for your coworkers and anyone you want to include in your conversations. The best part? Drastically less email, no more CCing a dozen people on an email, no more hunting ...

Just tried it. It felt too clunky and awkward at the moment (although the video game-like stylings were kinda of cool) but they only released six weeks ago, so it's understandably green. I uninstalled for the moment, but I'll revisit it in a few months after they've had some time to polish it.

Really, same date, different markets?

from Jodie Bienek Kaluza
 
So my work associate pointed this out today and I wanted to share.

This is the same paper, same date but from different markets. One geared to help sway the Austin Liberals and the other from a clearly more conservative market. Read the difference in headlines. Crazy!!!

This would be a huge win for either company, but I thought this was interesting, that 56% of Amazon's income comes from its cloud business, despite that accounting for only 9.5% of its revenue.
Trying to understand what causes flash crashes is no longer just for financial regulators and Wall Street. It’s a big deal in Silicon Valley too.

Real-time payments without credit cards are the bomb diggity. This is not real time, but same day settlement is still way better than four days
 
For bank transfers, the next best thing to FiSync and real-time transfers might be Same Day ACH.

Dwolla's Same Day ACH pilot program starts today.

Announcing Dwolla’s Same Day ACH Pilot Program In the United States, the ability to transfer funds from one bank account to another within the same business day has been a pipedream since the 1970s…

Derp, same day ACH. I forgot that was rolling out before real time ACH, and was surprised this was happening already.

Sweet, I've been wanting something like this, even if it was just the route planning piece, which so far you've been unable to do with Google Maps. The first part seems like a natural evolution of the Trips feature of Inbox. I'm really glad to see them doing more with that.

I guess it's missing route planning for road trips. Still a neat app.

So that's why no nougat for me yet.
 
The real problem is not that Google has stopped the rollout process. If there is a problem this is exactly what staged rollouts are for. But the complete lack of communication to its users is unacceptable.
A few supported Nexus devices, including the Huawei Nexus 6P, are yet to receive their Android 7.0 Nougat update but Google has failed to provide any reason why. A statement from Vodafone Australia’s customer support mentions that indeed, the rollout has been delayed. Although the exact issue has not been mentioned, Huawei is working towards

I wonder how much of that subscription base is attributable to giving everyone who pays for Play Music YouTube Red subscription. 
Is this article for serious? 
Alphabet's (GOOGL) YouTube Red has seen strong subscriptions right out of the gate. That's bad news for streaming video stocks like Netflix (NFLX).

Let me noodle on it.
Introduction
I love disruptive technology, not just what's hot, but that which is truly revolutionary.  That is left intentionally broad-brushed.  Technology should make our jobs easier, our efforts more effective, and give us more time to enjoy life.  So I post publicly about technology, privacy, and the occasional red herring.

I work with storage, mobile, and "cloud", and tend not to dwell on one thing too much when something better comes along.

Very nice, fairly easy to get around, as casinos go. The biggest drawback is that it's at the very south end of the strip.

It's a lot like the other casinos. Everything is overpriced inside. The rooms were very nice.

Best coffee around. Sourced globally, craft roasted locally, right in the shop. Buy some beans while you're there.
