These are some really cool purpose-built tools! I don't do cabinetry or furniture, but I sure wish someone made this sort of focused tooling for the stuff I do. 
Here's an interesting design challenge that extends beyond the design of the object you're trying to get into people's homes: Imagine you and your team have designed your thing, whatever it may be, and have engineered the parts to be manufacturable. Now you have to design an additional line of objects that people can use to assemble the initial object with complete precision. That's the challenge faced by companies like Häfele, Hettich and Blum,...

It is disappointing to me that no one I know really comes to G+ anymore, but I still refuse to go back to Facebook. Facebook is like the abusive boyfriend of social networks, and no matter how many times he says he's sorry, and didn't mean it, you know he's always going to demand more than any sane person should be willing to give up.

Oh, I won't give in. If I'm anything, it's unreasonably stubborn. I determined that Facebook was a fabulous way for me to loose friends, and that my life was quite a bit happier without it. Once I've made a determination like that, I almost never reverse myself, unless there's some major change of some sort.

I got all the wiring done, and now my bike's generator hub is finally making power! Happy time! I've wanted a bike that generated free power for my lights and devices forever, but I was always just to cheap to build up a wheel with a dynamo in it.

One of the things that is very difficult about having pre-web multimedia development experience, is having to spend a decade or two waiting for the entire web industry to get over their "but the web is different" BS, and realize that it is just like any other bit of development.

This article, for example, has some fabulous advice... that my team (and just about every other multimedia development company) figured out back around 1995 or so! The web is so cutting edge!

People these days need to just chill the fuck out! A couple of the videos were funny, a couple of them weren't, but the schtick itself, showing purposely anti-bike bike ads to avowed cycling advocates, was hilarious!

I bike every day, I don't even own a car anymore, and I found it entertaining. Meanwhile, I see people making all sorts of idiotic comments about how this is inciting violence, making fun of their dead relatives, and bringing about the fall of civilization, all from self-important douches, with no sense of humor.

Wow, that's a motor vehicle I could see actually buying... except they say it is designed for primarily people under 5' 7", which means I could probably use it as a rollerskate.

Meh!  They would make something super cool looking and then make it for short people only. :-/

I was pretty lukewarm about the original Blackmagic digital cinema camera, but this new one looks pretty great, with a fantastic price!

I feel sorry for anyone I know working in the games industry. I've seen this time and time again in multiple industries, and "democratizing" an industry, is just code for prioritizing tools and distribution, while commoditizing creativity, so that the large companies capable of providing infrastructure are the only ones making any real money.

Just like the publishing, photography, video, animation and design industries before it, you can now expect creative games salaries to plummet, while the profits of the companies providing tools and services skyrocket. Like so many other creative industries, it will now officially go from a solid way for a talented creative to make a living, to a lottery of one hit wonders and talentless hacks, competing for their 15 minutes, in the hope of getting rich quick.
Unreal Engine 3 set the standard for games last generation, powering breakout franchises like Gears of War and Mass Effect. We don't know if Unreal

Forget all the ridiculous politics that come up any time someone mentions this chain here in California. If where you eat is how you express your politics, then what are you doing eating at any fast food chain? Anyway, great chicken sandwich, and a lot better than KFC.

Really great burger, for the money. This is easily my favorite place to get a good cheap burger, and they have sweet potato fries. These guys have totally stolen me away from In-N-Out when I want to grab a cheap burger.

I will admit up front, the name and the hipster vibe gave me a bad feeling about this place from the beginning, but I was willing to give it a try. Unfortunately, it turned out to be just like practically every other 'hot' Hollywood restaurant, which is to say mostly atmosphere, bolstered by the obsequious praise foodies have to heap on any place that caters to 'alternative diets' with things like turkey and veggie burgers. Actually really boring food though, at a really high price. While we were there eating, my wife claimed they had the best turkey burger she had ever tasted in her life. But given that she never went back again, and has since found several other places that she says have the best turkey burger ever, I think that was just her justifying the high price. As far as their actual beef burger, it wasn't even in the top 20 burgers I've ever had, and nowhere near worth the price. Service was poor, we had to wait to be seated, it was loud and crowded, the prices were high for what it was, and I've had much better burgers, at half the price. Do not recommend it.

Their BBQ Pork Buns were very good, much bigger than I expected, and a great bargain. Unfortunately the same can not be said for the Broccoli Beef. It was pretty much flavorless. My wife said she liked the Garlic Chicken, but then her idea of good Chinese is Panda Express. At least the portion sizes are generous. We both had plenty of bland leftovers for tomorrow. The place is relatively clean and nice, at least compared to all the scary doughnut/Chinese/burger/chicken places that litter the area. All in all, there are much worse Chinese places in Hollywood, but Hoy's didn't really stand out as anything but your average generic Chinese, in any way but their Dim Sum. It is passable for grabbing quick food in the neighborhood, but not somewhere I would make a special trip to visit.

This is my favorite cheap burger place in all of LA. The food really is fantastic for the price. Throw in some sweet potato fries, and I'm sold. Really like this place.

For Hollywood it isn't bad Chinese food. Nothing to write home about, but if you live in the area, it is a viable option for picking something up. Can't really say I understand the reviewers who say it is either really great, or really horrible, because it seems like run of the mill Chinese food to me. Nothing special, but not bad either.
