Geeky - USB considered unsafe at any speed #threat #usb #itsatrap
Computer users pass around USB sticks like silicon business cards. Although we know they often carry malware infections, we depend on antivirus scans and the occasional reformatting to keep our thumbdrives from becoming the carrier for the next digital epidemic. But the security problems with USB devices run deeper than you think: Their risk isn’t…

We've all been in this meeting...

(Brilliant, and terrifyingly true) 
A marvelous video fully expresses the contrast between an engineer's rational mind and the others he sometimes must encounter at work for whom words are the wind that powers sales.

No, it's not just folks being wussier than they used to be, the weather really is lousy this winter. Worse yet, a slower, more extreme, Jetstream may be the new normal.
It's official: The weather has been a bit weird this winter. The nation's climate agency says so -- and, in part, explains why.

Think the cellphone market is about the US? Rethink that.

New camera software for late-model Android devices, shu-weet!
 
Today we’re launching Google Camera, a new app for your Android phone or tablet that makes it easy to take quick photos and videos. And being behind the lens just got more fun with new creative picture modes.

Sleek Design. The 100% viewfinder gets out of your way while capturing the maximum resolution of the scene (no dropped pixels). And the extra large capture button is easy to press so your eyes never lose sight of the subject.

Lens Blur. Emphasize the subject while blurring the background for an SLR-like shot with shallow depth-of-field (or bokeh). You can even change the subject in focus after taking the shot.

Improved Panorama. New higher resolution panoramas capture the full width and detail of a scene.

Photo Sphere. Immersive 360 degree photo spheres let you look up, down and all around...now at up to 50 megapixels! For the first time available on non-Nexus devices.

Google Camera is now available on the Play store (http://goo.gl/llsZjx), and works on all phones and tablets running Android 4.4+ KitKat. We’re just getting started, and in the months ahead we'll make Google Camera available to more devices, helping make photography easier, faster and more fun.

Check out our Research Blog to learn more (http://goo.gl/lUDfi8).

And now Motorola (phones) is off to Lenovo. So Google really was buying for the patents and not interested in making widgets for themselves.

Cranky. Opinionated. Geeky. Talks really, really, fast. Knows more useless information then anyone should. Carries more cellphones on him then anyone should. Flirty. Dirty minded. Huuuuge ego. Doesn't like raw tomatos but loves gazpacho & salsa so not so big on always being consistant. Well intentioned.
Introduction
Yer standard-issue mid-40's gay white guy, "bearish", has moved around a lot, used to be an IT Manager then Retail Sales Management. Look about the same for the past 20+ years so photos should give me away.

I've been eating here and and ordering takeout from here for years. I've always been extremely pleased with both the food and their service. My personal favorite is the Drunken Noodles, but everything is excellent. I'm also impressed with how they try to guide diners to dishes. I recently watched the waitress try to explain to a demanding customer that a curry dish must, by definition, include _some_ spices, but how about trying this out that dish which are similar but could be made quite bland. She worked very hard trying to match her customers requests to the capability of the kitchen (I would have quickly given up and recommended the unreasonable customer go home and make a cup of instant ramen.)

Big Patriots Sunday game day, this place was half empty. Asked to be seated someplace quiet-ish, the Host dumped us directly under a speaker. We tried to move to the adjacent empty table (empty tables all around us), were told that wasn't possible. An easy $150 for the three of us walked out the door. Unbelievably incompetent/rude treatment. No wonder this place was half empty when there were hour waits everywhere else. Instead we had a nice late lunch for my buddies 51st birthday down the street. This place *was* on the list for a big charity pub crawl next month, it'll be off by noon tomorrow. Nobody gonna waste time or money on these folk's inhospitality.

Spectacular! (Spooktacular?) Very large, very elaborate, series of sets filled with ghouls, goblins, and zombies interacting, popping out from odd corners, crypts, etc. Definitely family fun but also a blast for us adults. Great value for novel, live, entertainment.

Horrible service. Never seen the same "Manager" here twice. Staff was never able to answer anything but the most basic questions. What answers they could give were reliably wrong. Then one day my bank card was canceled, as I discovered when I went to pay for lunch. The only good thing was I had enough cash on me, was down the street from this branch. I went directly over and was told there was "some sort of problem" and I'd have to get a new card, new numbers, etc. Thank goodness this hadn't happened when I was on a business trip, or paying a large bill! Why didn't they tell me my card was being canceled? "How would we do that?" As they had my home phone, cell phone, texting number, & email address pretty damn easily! Anyway, closed the account, now just discovered they're *still* issuing autopays on my closed account! It's like a circus of casual incompetence! S T A Y A W A Y !

It's a pit. The store is *always* dirty, disorganized, the merchandise pawed over, stuff in the aisles, prices missing or wrong. The staff reflects the store, absolutely no interest in helping a customer (their standard strategy is to run away when asked a question, never, ever, to return.) Aside from supporting a store that treats it's employees terribly this one also treats it's customers terribly. Oh, and for comparison, the Target a block away? Immaculate, pleasant, the staff plentiful and *helpful*. A complete opposite of this horrid Walmart, so there's no excuse except for corporate apathy and incompetent store management. Don't waste your time here, don't give them your money. You deserve better and can do better.
