Computer in a nightstand - Spotswood test bench PAX East 2015: http://youtu.be/5iZ7ff9F9uc

No gaming PC's here.

Now if only there were a mass produced one with air filers and front IO.

Fantastic insight on the experience of developing a hiring pipeline... Useful insight for people looking for a position, looking to switch or more directly, looking to hire.

If you are in the latter group, you might look into open source quizzes... There is a fantastic one on github for front end developers.

He does have an interesting view on cross functional engineering.

Upset is putting it mildly. It's been two years since the bug was opened. This really gives fodder to the idea that Chrome is the new IE 6. +Ilya Grigorik Please fix asap.

Ironically, one of the first linux Laptops with a hidpi display was the google made, linux running Chromebook Pixel.

Tax season is here, so please, don't use TurboTax! Spread the word. I'll be using TaxACT again this year.

Also, if you're using quickbooks, you probably hate it too... Checkout OpenERM / Odoo, free for 2 users.
In the most technologically advanced countries, filing a tax return is free, easy and fast: Instead of taxpayers painstakingly calculating figures..

+Linus Sebastian The extra latency may have been caused by the probably insane interference with all the WiFi and Bluetooth devices around. Doing simultaneous Bluetooth+WiFi intensive gaming on a MoGa drastically affected the latency. Get one to test at your place... See how well it works with Nvidia's WiFi controllers, and with the keyboard as a thin client.

I was looking for an alternative to Google's personal blocklist, which takes about 400 ms to remove results. It's not fast enough to prevent me from clicking the first result.

Then I found this purpose made tool to block the most nefarious annoying outdated click baity low quality programmer resource known to man.

A great article on the state of Linux GPU drivers, great comments too. In summary, Nouveau is now being fed documentation by Nvidia. Nvidia has had and increasingly continues to have the best proprietary GPU drivers, both in terms of performance and reliability.

Meanwhile AMD's limited but more willing support for fglrx makes it the perform better with free distros and perhaps cutting edge ones with newer kernels. Proprietary Catalyst drivers are closer to their open source counter parts, but have suffered from crippling 7+ month gaming performance issues.

Practically speaking, if gaming is your first priority, and you don't ming being behind on the latest kernels/distros, or the very real possibility of exploits in the driver binaries, or their harsh controlling stance on open source, Nvidia is your first choice.

If gaming is an after thought to playing 4K video and juggling 20 animated windows and chrome tabs, then AMD's approach would allow you to comfortably use open source drivers exclusively, with the option to go with Catalyst drivers once Linux gaming gets taken seriously by Valve.

P.S. as a side note, today once again Microsoft announced they are holding on to dear life by suing Kyocera over Android related patents.

Torvalds isn't yet ready to apologize for giving Nvidia the finger.

I really love this app... combined with Xdebug helper, it's freed me from the under supported Eclipse or the closed source PHPStorm/IDEA. It enables php developers to program remotely from anywhere... allowing for a truly cloud based development environment... yes that means uncompromising PHP development from a Chromebook. While a bit buggy, it has been a game changer.

A Google rubber stamped Android microconsole wins the Engadget people's choice award AND best gaming product of CES 2015. With Sony selling Android TV's, Amazon making Fire TV's and Engadget's/Google's weight behind this product, now would be a good time to make more controller centric Android games.

The people have spoken, and Razer's Forge TV is the People's Choice winner for Best of CES 2015! It was a close call, however, as it won with only 16.13

At the time of writing this, unchallenged. Their black on white site isn't great to read in broad daylight, but their process makes up for it. Great prices, great shipping options, no VAT... very happy with them.

This place has definitely come down from its golden age. The two main complaints from other reviewers are a bit overblown. Hot water takes 30 minutes flat to arrive, but when it does it gets scalding hot. The shower head are quite a crapshoot on the other hand. It's not a big problem since the bathrooms are designed to be flooded, but its still disconcerting to see the water being thrown all over the place. I had an extra toothbrush from virgin and decided to scrub the nozzles of graduation hat shaped shower head. Clearing the stuck nozzles from the calcium deposits made the entire square shower head work as intended. Of course, there is a lot to love about this place. The floors an the stairs are entirely marble, with strong blue lighting. The rooftop restaurant itself is quite good and well decorated. The one thing that may really put people off, and the reason why its a budget hotel is its location. Its not in old delhi, but it feels like it. There are over a dozen hotels on the street, but it lacks side walks and greenery. Its a very good hotel, the roof top restaurant alone is worth it. Say nothing of the great WiFi, breakfast and luxurious atmosphere.

Wrong location. Makes you believe it's much closer to the airport than it really is.

When you look at the image in the google maps posting, you don't think of a restaurant with a vegetarian menu, a well dressed waiter and a wine shelf. Yet thats what I got when I visited. This is the only restaurant in syracuse with a two page Vegetarian menu, even strong hearts would have a hard time keeping up. And the dishes are genuinely fantastic.
