Tempting...

Unfortunately they don't currently have an option with an i5, 8GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD. 
Dell’s new XPS 13 laptop has the same thin and light design (and super-slim screen bezels) as the model introduced earlier this year. But Dell is overhauling the notebook’s insides. New models are available with Intel’s 6th-gen Core “Skylake” processors. The company is also now offering XPS 13 notebooks with up to 16GB of RAM. …

Wow. That's a pretty horrible name. What ever happened the whole "HTC One means we have one phone" marketing talk? I guess that's all it was, marketing talk.

HTC is expanding its 2015 line of flagship phones, and this time the company’s emphasizing its new phone’s camera. Earlier this year the company launched the HTC One M9. Then it was followed by the HTC One M9+ which offers a high-resolution display and a MediaTek processor rather than one from Qualcomm. Now meet the …

I just watched the sun rise from the International Space Station on my phone while getting ready for work. Um...awesome!

"Get a whole new view of the world with ISS onLive using Chromecast" http://www.androidcentral.com/get-whole-new-view-world-iss-onlive-using-chromecast #frequent #feedly 
Science and technology have come a long way from the world we were born into. For many of us space has always been a huge part of scientific progress. The International Space Station is a marvel of advancement, and now you can see the world the way that it does. ISS onLive is a live feed of the ISS's orbit around the Earth. This app which, has fantastic Chromecast support lets you see...

I was just looking at the prices of USB drives on Amazon. There are 4GB USB drives for less than $5 with free shipping. The hard drive in the first computer I bought and put together was only 2GB and cost over $100. Stop making me feel old Amazon!

I'm not sure if this is horrifically awful or insanely awesome.

Sure, Siri, Cortana, and Google’s voice search let you talk to your smartphone and listen to it talk back. But you know what your phone probably can’t do? Walk. Fortunately, Sharp is on it. The Japanese consumer electronics company has unveiled a new smartphone called the RoboHon. But it’s not just a phone. It’s also a …

I still don't think it's enough to make me put a watch on after spending years trying not to wear one. But it's close. Apparently they have a trade in program too. Planning to upgrade +Bressain Dinkelman ?

Indeed. Pebble Time Round feels very much like a "me too" product. Kind of annoyed that they felt the need to do that. I (and many others) thought what they had already was great.

"Steve Jobs wasn't wrong. Here's what he REALLY meant." Maybe what was really wrong wasn't whether or not our devices have styluses. Maybe what was really wrong was speaking in absolutes. E.g. Anything with a stylus HAS to be wrong. A tablet with a 7" screen HAS to be wrong. Unless of course Steve Jobs was a Sith. Now that I think about it, that would explain a lot of things...

Someone just asked me for my current podcast list. So I thought I'd post it here too in case the group would find it useful. Feel free to reply with any additional podcasts you like.


.NET Rocks (https://www.dotnetrocks.com/) - Obviously pretty .NET specific, though not always. I don't listen to every episode, but enough that it's still worth it for me. The geek out episodes are usually pretty good.

Android Central (http://www.androidcentral.com/podcast) - All about what's new in the Android world. But also some general mobile and general technology stuff.

Hanselminutes (http://hanselminutes.com/) - Often .NET specific, but not always. Again, I don't listen to every episode, but enough to make it worth it for me.

NPR: Planet Money (http://www.npr.org/podcasts/510289/planet-money) - I added this one recently based on a recommendation from another podcast. I'm close to dropping it from my list, but I'm going to give it a little more time before deciding for sure.

Stuff You Should Know (http://www.stuffyoushouldknow.com/podcasts/) - Not technology related usually, but there are enough interesting topics to make it worth it to keep on my list.

Software Engineering Radio (http://www.se-radio.net/) - Really hit and miss. Sometimes they have awesome shows. Sometimes they have super boring shows.

Ruby Rogues (http://devchat.tv/ruby-rogues/) - Usually Ruby specific. But some shows are mostly technology agnostic.

PowerScripting (http://powershell.org/wp/powerscripting-podcast/) - I just barely added this one based on a recommendation from a co-worker, so I have no idea how good it is yet. It looks like it's usually about Powershell, but it seems to have a devops-y sort of feel to it.

Zachtronics (http://www.zachtronics.com/podcast/) - I just recently added this one too. It's about interviews with indie game developers. It also doesn't seem to post new episodes very often. But the one episode I listened to was entertaining.

Just piling on here, +1 to Pocket Casts (was a fan of Carcast but was missing features I wanted). I keep my list of podcasts mostly up to date here: http://www.dinkelburt.com/p/podcasts.html

Fun fact, Fassbender was a Nazi hunter in Inglourious Basterds as well. Not sure what that adds...
