Amazing and touching Leonard Nimoy tribute from an ISS astronaut. For those of you who don't fully understand the impact of Spock's character (and Star Trek in general) on those in the technology, engineering, and science fields, here is a great article:

http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory/leonard-nimoy-leaves-legacy-science-fiction-29281567

"Leonard Nimoy was an inspiration to multiple generations of engineers, scientists, astronauts and other space explorers," said NASA administrator Charles Bolden. "As Mr. Spock, he made science and technology important to the story, while never failing to show, by example, that it is the people around us who matter most."
“"Of all the souls I have encountered.. his was the most human." Thx @TheRealNimoy for bringing Spock to life for us.”

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler proposes new rules for regulating Internet service (ISPs and wireless carriers) much like traditional phone lines and other public utilities. His full statement is in the attached article. For a summary and reactions from both sides of the political spectrum, check this article:

I am proposing the FCC use its Title II authority to implement and enforce open internet protections, banning paid prioritization, and the blocking and throttling of lawful content and services.

Be sure to watch the video in this article for demonstrations on what Microsoft HoloLens is capable of doing. Besides the cool holograms in your room or on your table, I think the best practical application in the video is the one showing a person receiving help for a plumbing issue. Amazing.
We just finished a heavily scripted, carefully managed, and completely amazing demonstration of Microsoft's HoloLens technology. Four demos, actually, each designed to show off a different use case...

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Google will stop selling its Internet-connected eyewear to consumers until the company can develop a more polished and affordable version that's less likely to be viewed as a freakish device.

Great for sports fans that have already cut the cord. Also includes TNT and a few other networks for only $20 / month.
A new service from Dish will let you watch ESPN, CNN, and other channels over the internet — without a cable subscription.

Pebble adds a color e-paper screen, microphone, and OS improvements to its new watch. Shipping in May 2015. $179 (vs $199 retail) if you purchase from Kickstarter.
Three years ago, Pebble made crowdfunding history by raising over $10 million on Kickstarter for its simple e-ink smartwatch -- a whole two years before

In addition to being a smart mattress cover, the video shows the planned integration with various home automation and fitness systems.
 
The Luna mattress cover tracks your sleep, heats your bed to just the right temperature and has a built-in smart alarm to wake you up at the right time.
Wrist-worn sleep trackers are so 2014. The Luna mattress cover tracks your sleep, heats your bed to just the right temperature and has a built-in smart alarm to wake you up at the right time.
