My favorite line in the piece:

Google now strongly recommends—which is a lightly-veiled warning that it’ll be mandatory soon—that every Chromebook include GPS, NFC, compass, accelerometer, a fingerprint reader, and a barometer.

Who ever thought they would need those things in a laptop? I can't wait to see the future!

I'd rather have Chrome/Android hybrid than a Surface or an iPad Pro. Any.day.of.the.week.

Last week, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., emerged from the golden Twitter egg that is Trump Tower and told reporters that the President-elect had asked him to chair a committee on “vaccine safety and scientific integrity.” Somewhere, a measles virus cackled with glee.

I spent some time researching my genealogy over the past few weeks and discovered that fully 7 of my direct blood ancestors fought in the American Revolution. This recognition of my connection to the founding story of the US emboldens me beyond what I believe to be mere politics. We are entering a time in which the defense of core liberal (lowercase l) values -- enlightenment epistemology (a.k.a. science, reason, and a evidence-based truth) and democracy based on core Constitutional freedoms -- is re-emerging as something that people of good faith and education must take up in their daily responsibilities. With Trump we are at the edge of a very dangerous precipice. Vigilance and -- if necessary -- active and public resistance will need to become understood as the duties of patriotism, citizenship, and humanity. This is not politics. This is the protection of the rare and hard-fought human creed that is represented in the traditions of the western enlightenment movement that spawned our current civilization -- via science, technology, economic power, and innovation -- as we know it.

The New Yorker's Reznick writes (and this piece is on fire, and a must read, BTW):

"In other words, the Constitution is not by itself an insuperable barrier against the authoritarian temptation. As Obama pointed out in his final press conference, there is a distinct difference between debates over policy and moments when “core values may be at stake.” A President can at least try to constrain freedoms, issue racist decrees, intimidate, coerce. And, if that becomes the case, it will be on us, resolute citizens, to protect the republic—to demand, as Franklin said, that we keep it."
As Trump takes office, there is every reason to be on guard against a President whose attachment to constitutional norms seems episodic at best.

I don't think Trump will be tweeting as much as he used to.
While rising to our nation’s highest office is an unparalleled honor, becoming President also involves many personal sacrifices. This week, Donald Trump may have made his first, reportedly “trad[ing] in” the Android phone widely believed to be his primary tweeting device for a Secret Service-approved smartphone.
