Microsoft: We've changed! We love Linux!
Reality: Evil is, as evil does.
Acer is the latest large OEM to have become a victim of Microsoft's witch-hunt against Android/Linux preloaders, whom Microsoft is coercing into becoming Microsoft's carriers (or face litigation over software patents, with high legal fees if not injunctions or high damages upon secret settlements)

Optimize the algorithm, not the hardware.

"Achieving this level of accuracy with computational loads that are suitable for real-time applications on low-power processors will not only advance the capabilities of highly specialized navigation systems, like those used in driverless cars and precision agriculture, but it will also improve location services accessed through mobile phones and other personal devices, without increasing their cost"
Researchers at the University of California, Riverside have developed a new, more computationally efficient way to process data from the Global Positioning System (GPS), to enhance location accuracy from the meter-level down to a few centimeters.

Well, if it comes down to Trump for president, might as well.

Wired is changing it's policy to a paywall for those that block ads. The result is that some of those in the security and privacy sectors will no longer work with them.

I know that New Hampshire is next to Vermont :-) 

I'm adding an edit to say: I don't mean that people voted for him because of the "home team", I mean that this is one area where he benefits from having as much name recognition as Clinton. I grew up in Connecticut and I sure as hell knew who Bernie Sanders was, long before I'd heard of any Clintons :-)

I went through the IMDB 2016 upcoming movies list, and this is what I came up with. As usual, the further out the movies are, the more fluid the schedule. And they always throw a few extras in as well.

I am truly shocked. And by shocked, I mean not at all surprised.

"My guess is that AT&T is so deep in bed with the NSA and FBI that he's just saying things he believes justifies his position."

The best prison is the one you've been born into, not even knowing that you're in it.

"By the end of Where to Invade Next — after seeing working-class Italians with two months paid vacation, Finnish schools with no homework and the world’s best test scores, Slovenians going to college for free, and women seizing unprecedented power in Tunisia and Iceland — you may realize that the entire movie is about how other countries have dismantled the prisons in which Americans live: prison-like schools and workplaces, debtor’s prisons in order to pay for college, prisons of social roles for women, and the mental prison of refusing to face our own history."
A new documentary from Moore coyly attacks the American idea that regular people need to be controlled by punitive laws and restrictive norms.

Oh no. I'm going to have to go to the indie theater this weekend to see this.

Meth is bad, mkay? So give it to your kids, because it's safe and will help them focus.

A Columbia University psychiatry professor talks about what he's learned from trying the drug himself and studying it over the years.

The thing that kills me about children's psych meds is that the studies on them that led to their adoption are nowhere near long enough to judge any real impact on brain development. I strongly suspect these medications have similar unintended consequences to steroids; specifically that the bodies own chemistry significantly and quite possibly permanently lowers development of the chemicals that these drugs are meant to mimic. Coincidentally this is the same basic premise for why mood altering drugs are addictive.

There will be a press conference on Thursday morning, related to the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory detection of gravitational waves.

I doubt they're having a press conference to report "they got nothing".
:)
LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC) seeks to detect gravitational waves and use them for exploration of fundamentals of science.

Great prices, especially for bulk purchases. Very friendly and helpful staff. We love shopping there, even if it's a little out of our way.

We moved into this house 35 years ago. Every few years, we'd have the driveway sealed, but otherwise no work was done on it. A few years back the chipmunks had tunneled under the driveway. Their tunnels can be 30-feet long, with assorted branches. Shortly thereafter, part of the driveway started to sink. There was a deep depression near one of the garages, and it was getting annoying. So this year, we had the driveway redone. A seven man crew with seemingly every piece of road construction equipment filled the cul-de-sac, and they worked on it for about three hours. They jack-hammered out a large section (they said it hadn't been properly graded initially), and rebuilt the whole thing. They were meticulous. They moved the red rock away and back from the front plant beds, collected every bit of debris and used a blower to dust the area. They didn't like the level of the street at the end of the driveway (really the township's responsibility), so they fixed that too. It's really nice to see people take pride in their work.

I love Harbor Freight. I love everything they sell, and their surprisingly low prices. Everytime I go there, I want everything in the store. If they had a hitch on the building, I'd probably buy it all and drag it home. It's a tool candy store. Resistance is futile.

We had some storm damage on our siding, and had Majestic do the repair. They matched the siding perfectly, were very courteous and professional. Their prices were also excellent. We will happily be using them again.

We had these folks build our original deck 27 years ago, and we were so happy with it, we hunted them down to build the replacement. They do a great job, and their prices are very reasonable. We highly recommend them.

Great service! Jared came to our house to repair our snowblower (no spark, wouldn't start). It runs great now. It's nice that I didn't have to try to get it to a repair shop either. Prompt arrival when scheduled, fast repair, very reasonable pricing. If any of our small engines acts up again, he's the first person we'll call.

I had cracked a tooth and needed a crown. They took a 3D scan of my mouth, and used an onsite milling machine to make a permanent crown in 7 minutes. It fit perfectly. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, and they all go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Highly recommended.
