Muchly needed serial plotter added!
 
There's a new Arduino IDE software update, and it means a new tool to play with
Arduino releases version 1.6.6 of their IDE software, adding new tools and features for programming Arduino-compatible microcontrollers.

Finally we'll be free of contracts without forking over almost a grand for an unlocked phone?
 
Yup

How did it come to this? In the past, wireless carriers so effectively locked consumers into their services that the two-year contract was a fact of life. But Apple and Google ended up building better phones than the carriers ever would have—or could have—on their own. And in myriad ways, these two tech titans forced carriers to open their networks to these superior devices. (Google, for instance, was instrumental in pushing the FCC to license spectrum that required this sort of open access.)

For a while, carriers continued to lock consumers into contracts by subsidizing phone purchases. But that became an enormous financial burden, and eventually, one carrier, T-Mobile, struggling for marketshare, let go of contracts. “No one wanted to do it first,” saystechnology and strategy consultant Chetan Sharma, who closely tracks how consumers are buying and upgrading phones. “But once T-Mobile did it, all the others did.”


The newest iPhones are built to run on practically any network worldwide, and Apple is financing purchases. This means we'll soon have the freedom to move between networks as we please.

Last shameless POTD: I got my Art of Peanuts book in the mail today and it's really interesting to see how the characters from the old comic and animations have come back to life on the big screen.

RIP Lenny Robinson
 
R.I.P. Lenny Robinson.

Sometimes the cruelty of life is that the best ones are taken away too soon..

He visited sick children in hospitals and gave them gifts among the other things

This guy was a true hero and a gentleman...
Lenny B. Robinson, a viral sensation who dressed as a superhero to visit sick children, was struck by a car.
