Amazon Web Services (AWS) promotes its cost advantages, but cloud storage pioneer Backblaze is less than 1/4 the cost. Their B2 service is designed for businesses that want massive storage without massive cost.

Really needs a smoking approximately star shaped hole in the fabric with small flames hinting at future combustion of a larger area.

+Grant Grundler The original intent was to reduce cost/ease of manufacturing, as well as being lightweight. It's design was explicitly constrained by what could be made by a simple 2.5D CNC mill. No need for complex, hihgly accurate 5-axis machines - just a set of basic 2D machines to mill the individual pieces, then assemble. Simple, cheap, fast.

Prototype reliability was also a problem - the prototypes would only last 15 minutes at full rpm on the engine dyno before heat and seal wear would result in a lack of compression. No idea if those problems have been solved yet, either...

Yes Minister is British comedy from the early 1980s. Still hilarious, poignant and utterly relevant.

Sous-vide in Target. Maybe it's finally gaining critical mass?

No idea why this is rated as upscale - the food was poor apart from the soup. Lobster bisque was decent, steak was bland, sides were terrible - army green colored beans that look like they might have come out of a can, sloppy tasteless potatoes, and mushrooms that tasted more boiled than sauted. Wine is OBSCENELY overpriced, even for New York ripoff standards. Would never dream of going back. Sad.

Obscenely expensive. $5 for one tiny scoop the size of a golf ball.

By far the best diner in the area.

The main Nomad restaurant is one of my favorite places in NYC, so was really looking forward to the bar. On the upside, the food and service were very good. On the downside, its really horribly overpriced for what it is, the waiting area downstairs is painfully loud, and the decor is pretty tragic. The dark wood panelling concept is fine, but both the flooring and walls are made of laminate and the whole place looks cheap, fake and tacky. Disappointing.

Food was very good, albeit small portions, but chairs exceedingly uncomfortable and coffee tasted like dishwater.

Hotel was good, nice rooms, comfortable, reasonably priced, staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was weak.

Fish was truly great - cooked perfectly, moist and flaky in a light batter. Let down by the fries, which were so-so, and hush puppies, which were inedible. Suggest you just throw those out, and eat the fish
