We have news -- we’re excited to be joining Google[x], Google’s moonshot factory. We will continue to sell our Liftware system, and Google will enable us to reach even more people living with Parkinson’s or essential tremor who could benefit from using tremor-canceling devices every day.

Paving the way for the new Nodejs posted on 27 January 2014. ReQL, the RethinkDB Query Language, embeds into your programming language, making it pleasant to write queries. The JavaScript driver is a great implementation of ReQL, but it forces users to deal with callbacks making the code ...

Building RethinkDB on a Raspberry Pi posted on 06 December 2013. It took 3 whole days, but I did build RethinkDB on my Raspberry Pi, and it's working! All the praise should go to @davidthomas426 who submitted a pull request for RethinkDB to support ARM.

Why Karl is coming every summer.
 
The best explanation I've read seen or read about why fog afflicts San Francisco in summer. You can pack 10 years of learning into this one slideshow.

And did you know that fog is essential to California's coastal redwoods? And that climate change has seen fog intensity decrease? So much good stuff here?
Ever wondered why the Bay Area fog is so intense in the summer? In this original explainer, Newsbound lays out the science behind this fantastic (and frigid) natural phenomenon.

Ranting about +T-Mobile (because I couldn't find a mail support -- and because I already tried their hotline). Hopefully I'll get an answer here.


User experience is about the worse part of a whole experience.

I like the fact that you are trying to disturb the market by providing 4G to people at a lower price and without contract.
Your international data plan (http://www.t-mobile.com/simple-choice-international-plans.html) for simple choice plans (http://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phone-plans/individual.html?cm_sp=tmo-_-b52-_-b2shopplan) made quite a buzz when announced, but:
1/ Why doesn't it work if I prepay the plan every month? (with an autoload?!)
2/ Where is it even mentioned that if I prepay the plan I won't have access to this international plan? I found it the hard way when I landed in Germany and your hotline didn't help... 

That really blows.

I went back to France for holidays, and many things became a pain because of you and the fact that I was relying on having a 3G connection (no printed tickets, no google maps, no music etc.)

Please fix this.
I'm still traveling in Europe if you feel like fixing it soon...
