Get your ** together #Pandora. You went from free to paid, I paid. You doubled the price, I paid. Now, when I login to my PAID account, there are 20 Trackers loaded and 212 web requests, and if you're using AdBlock, it won't even work. WTF are you doing? Why does your PAID product suck more than the FREE alternatives? You'll not have me as a customer much longer. Keep running your company into the ground.

FitBits can be infected over BlueTooth and spread the virus on their own from there. Makes me think about when I've fired up the BT sniffer at South Station and seen dozens of FitBits in range. You could just place a mobile phone in a flower pot for a day and infect hundreds of people waiting for trains. Out on the platforms thousands of people stand massed during rush hour.

I work in wearables and security is a joke. Recall that earlier this year the Nike Fuel Band was shown to use the same encryption key on all devices, which was all 1's. Come on, man.
Wearables are like hacker candy. They represent a new category of technology that’s capable of storing data—including malware—that people don’t expect to get pwned. But that’s exactly what just happened: Hackers figured out how to remotely upload malware to a Fitbit. It only takes ten seconds.

In town for the Strata+Hadoop conference. Enjoying the awesome ramen at Totto Ramen in Manhattan. Damn good ramen, at a bar, and they make the miso in 40 gallon boiling cauldrons before you.

Seems the script kiddies discovered data url's and hex encoding. What a perfectly terrible idea.

I'm from NC. As great as the Triangle area is for tech and lots of neat folks to work/live with, the politicians in the state make me quite sad. If they're not trying to ban gay marriage, or outlaw rising sea level predictions, then they're passing laws like this. 

I'd like to see Google Fiber threaten to pull out over this. Tell the yokels in the state house that they can have a tech boom, or be an ideological backwater, but not both.

Major thanks to #BostonFire for putting out the house fire just down the street in record time. Only the back of the house got burned up. 11 fire engines on the street now. Quite the overwhelming response. Thanks #BDF  ! Protect Jamaica Plain!

w00t, we're getting a faster C*! Ah, but so much #Java bashing. Sadness. You know, if you rewrote the whole thing in Akka/Scala (which is Java byte code under the covers) you could probably get a hell of a speed up too. Frankly, rewriting and rearchitecting any legacy codebase can get you a speedup from using better memory models and removing old kruft.

But the real problem is who will use this? Telling the #Cassandra dev community that spent 7 years writing this code in Java, to switch to a new C++ codebase is a non-starter. You'd have to find a whole new stable of OSS developers. So then, who is going to maintain this new non code-compatible branch of C*? I fear that when these C++ devs get tired of this academic exercise the support will fade quickly.

these guys are insanely prolific and it's fun to watch them race. given they wrote kvm i wouldn't bet against this project. and osv is a marvel that'll come into it's own eventually.

I dove headlong into Scala in July. After plowing through "Programming in Scala (2011)," "Programming Scala (2014)," and "Functional Programming in Scala (2015)." I've really come to enjoy it much more than Java. Everything just makes more sense and is so much cleaner than before (i.e. my last decade in JS, C#, C++, Java, PHP, Matlab, Python). Or perhaps it just a love for functional languages that even have a formal concept of "purity."

But, alas, it is indeed hard. Writing 100% of your code as async methods and abstract algebras is not easy. Sure, the code is much less verbose, is very unlikely to face runtime errors, and outperforms comparable languages (i.e. for building a web API), but you can't just write it in notepad and see it run in your browser. Perhaps I'm too erudite, but I'd like to see something become popular for being better rather than for being easier (i.e. Python), but I suspect of the universe of problems to solve, architects will prefer easy solutions to solve easy problems.

Spent about an hour pondering buying this. I'm all about economy in typing. I know every key command in Eclipse to work as efficiently as I can. I love the wood in this product and the sculpted keys, but the creators just aren't nailing it.

Check out the wasted keys like "Butterfly", "Rec", "Led", "Num", and "Any" keys. And those are the non-modified keys (no fn press). What a waste! Clearly this is made for hipsters that will giggle at an "Any" key, with no real use and just love that butterfly. Oh, and you can program the LED's to chase in patterns... Pretty clear when you read the resumes of the creators that they're all tech experts, but no one in the ergonomic, biomechanics, or product design fields, and the product shows. Just something that's pretty.

Many CTRL/ALT/TAB/SHIFT combos will be a mashing of the fist into the pad. ALT+TAB, probably among the most common combos now takes 2 hands (or ALT+Fn+Tab). This shows in how poorly the hand model has their hands on the marketing pictures and the highly unnatural typing the animated GIF (clearly hand model, look at that perfect skin and freshly manicured nails). 

Add to that the flat keyboard plane. Any ergo will tell you this should be angled at a specific inclination.  Who knows, perhaps it will be a great keyboard. I nearly bought it, but then thought about all my common key combos. Now if only the similarly priced Kinesis wasn't just so damn ugly.
Keyboardio is raising funds for The Model 01: an heirloom-grade keyboard for serious typists on Kickstarter! With a hardwood body, mechanical switches & custom-sculpted keycaps, it's a dream to type on. It comes with source code & a screwdriver
