You may think this is silly, but I would absolutely decline a job if they required me to wear a suit every day.

The current state of the mobile industry is summed up nicely in the opening sentence:

T-Mobile has given its unlimited data customers 2 more gigabytes of data just for mobile hotspot use.

Even T-Mobile, despite their "Uncarrier" mantra, is victim to the same limits that just cost AT&T $100m.

Shot this video for a friend of mine, figured I'd share it here. 

Turns out the Dell Venue 8 Pro running Windows 10 is quite the capable little game streamer. I'd imagine less action-intense games would be more fun to play on this little tablet.

What's the point of writing under a pseudonym if everyone knows it's you?
J.K. Rowling has announced she will be releasing the third instalment in her mystery-thriller trilogy, which she pens under the name Robert Galbraith.

The original lawsuit left a small question in my mind as to whether it was just strategic timing from Jawbone or a legit issue, but this follow-up lawsuit confirms (in my mind, at least) that this is just a salty competitor trying to drag down Fitbit's IPO. Which makes me dislike Jawbone even more and leaves me even LESS interested in their products. 
The court drama between Jawbone and Fitbit is heating up quickly. Two weeks ago Jawbone sued Fitbit for "plundering" confidential information (along with

I'm not a comic book junkie, but I kinda like this stance. Don't mess with the already-established characters. Just write new ones. 
Stan Lee is totally cool with diversity - just not in characters that he's already established as white and straight.

Totally agree - turning Thor into a female character was P.C. gone mad. He was a Norse god ffs. It's not like there are plenty of strong female superheroes - I know what, why don't they recast Wonderwoman as Wonderman? Will never happen the other way.

I remember wanting one of these SOOO badly. 
Back in 1999, Sony released a robotic dog called Aibo, a canine companion that didn’t crap everywhere and only ate electricity. It sold pretty well — 150,000 units, despite the $2,000 price tag. Some owners became remarkably attached, which makes it even more sad that Sony has stopped repairing Aibo. Slowly but surely, they’re all dying.

You and I both. Around the time I started my serious shopping for one they were discontinued. Shame too. Really, really good tech in the Aibo.

And in a similar vein, it would kill me if it were to be dying right now. Those stories about robots evoking emotion (Alone Together and other books), come to mind here.

I remember having this discussion at RadioShack when pot was legalized in Colorado. 

Even though pot is legal, coming to work "under the influence" can still be illegal - just like alcohol is legal, but coming to work drunk can get you fired. 

The biggest issue (and the crux of our conversation back then) is that your body is able to process alcohol within hours, so you could party on Saturday and get to work on Sunday/Monday just fine. However, weed stays in your body for much longer, so you'd essentially have to take a ridiculously long vacation to clear it out of your body. 

Will be interesting to see how this shakes out long-term. 
The state Supreme Court ruled Monday that a medical marijuana patient who was fired after failing a drug test cannot get his job back.

I've always been obsessed with Vertu phones. I understand the ridiculousness of that, especially coming from a guy who changes phones several times a year. But good lord they're so sexy. 
There are flagship Android phones and then there are luxury Android phones. The Vertu Signature Touch is the latter, and you'll pay for the privileges that come with it. The quick take Made of premium materials with a solid design, the Vertu Signature Touch is an impressive piece of hardware with some cool services to back it up. But it's hobbled by inconsistent performance that hurts...
