For all those x86 Android devices. But hey, Chromebooks is still a big deal.

Not bad, imagine it's a bit of overhead but the line is blurring anyhow since you can make a console application that runs in linux / windows / mac with a snap, a whistle and a pert "whoop".

Stunning.
Donald Trump courted hard-liners on immigration in the primary campaign. But he signaled Wednesday night he'd be in favor of a path to legalization for some immigrants in the U.S. illegally.

While computer performance is generally measured in Ghash/s... a human takes almost 2 days to do a single hash... the Zen meditation equivalent of bitcoin mining?
 
How to mine Bitcoins by hand

Bitcoins are mined using a cryptographic algorithm called SHA-256, which is simple enough to be done on paper. You can work it out at a rate of of 0.67 hashes per day! Looks more fun than Sudoku! =P

If you have Windows 10's Anniversary Update, there's a handy little tool for performing remote tech support that's baked right into your computer. It's the new Quick Assist feature.

What a mess it is...
Google's mélange of messaging apps is about to get even more chaotic. The company plans to shift its consumer-centric Hangouts app towards the enterprise, just as it starts from scratch with two new apps for consumers: Allo and Duo.

Garmin's metal Fenix Chronos is packed with features, but it's also very expensive.

Story
Introduction
Interested in language, music, movies, mathematics, computer gaming, and programming.

I listen to; and appreciate most music genres. But I have a soft spot for Alternative, Gothic Rock, World, Folk, and Indie. (Electronic or Instrumental Rock is my preference when I work)

I'm a tinkerer, thinker and easily distracted. I love building things (electronics) and fixing stuff (don't like to discard anything unless I can help it)

I use Linux, Windows and Mac OS X to run my hardware. But my "platform" of choice is Chrome (for now).

I also develop Mac and iOS applications, but use Android.

My favorite books: Ender's Game, Hitch Hiker's Guide, Faerie Tale, Catch-22, Nineteen eighty-four, Mistborn, Magician, Midnight's Children.

My favorite movies: Dead Man, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, 8 1/2, Third Man, Seven Samurai, My Neighbor Totoro, The Matrix, Mary Poppins, The Royal Tenenbaums, Three Colors Blue, City of Lost Children, Only Lovers Left Alive, and many more.

My favorite computer games: WoW, Diablo, Quake, Starcraft, Borderlands, Skyrim, BioShock, Fallout, Druid (C64), Loom (Amiga), Elite (C64) and Dangerous.

Had to battle to get noticed, seated, and gave up trying to find someone to clean the table. Decided to just leave... the place smelled a bit off too. The bar area looked good... pity we wanted lunch I guess...
