I'm making fermented hot sauce.

I put a pound of jalapeños in a jar with water, garlic, onions and three yellow carrots, topped with red-wine vinegar and salt.

This has been fermenting now for about a week, and might have another week to go before I blend it into hot sauce.

I'll keep you posted.

Why Google and Apple will rule mixed reality

(Read my column: https://goo.gl/XclDOD )

The brilliant future of mixed reality will come to us from the likes of Microsoft and Magic Leap, according to the conventional wisdom.

Microsoft has grabbed mindshare with awesome demos of its Hololens product, like its Project XRay game demo at its October 2015 Windows 10 event.

Magic Leap, which has raised more than $1 billion from investors, has dazzled YouTube users with simulated experience videos.

Other contenders in this space include ODG and Meta.

There's no question that the demos are cool and that several or all of those products will appear on the market and thrill users with a new experience that blends the real with the virtual.

But the future of mixed reality won't be dominated by Microsoft, Magic Leap, ODG or Meta, but by Google and Apple. Here's why.

4 out of 5 jars of Manuka honey are fake - report

New Zealand produces less than 2,000 tons of Manuka honey each year. Yet more than 10,000 tons are sold. Wow.
