Things we bought in 2015
#yearinreview  
Since the Middle Ages, human beings have purchased various goods—ranging from bare necessities to unimaginable luxuries—using money acquired from wage labor. We routinely report on how the past and present iterations of this system, commonly known as market capitalism, depend on the subjugation of the planet’s most powerless populations and the destruction of the earth’s most fragile ecosystems. We much less routinely acknowledge the fact that we...

It's getting close to my favorite time of the year. CES 2016 is near at hand.
It's the time when we get to see all the new tech (previously known as vapourware). This year will be much the same as the last show. Driverless cars, wearables, and drones. Oh, and a few new twists on laptops.
#CES2016
PCs aren't being revolutionized, but modernized and re-sized to suit every individual's need.
