In other words, $382M for making a rectangular phone was a wee bit too absurd? #apple   #samsung   #twt

A federal appeals court Monday gave Apple a mixed ruling in the tech giant's patent-infringement case against rival Samsung Electronics in the companies' global battle for mobile phone supremacy.

Wait. Joel and Crow T Robot are in this? Why the hell wasn't I told?? #otherspace #mst3k #twt 
When Paul Feig announced his new comedy series would premiere on Yahoo Screen, most people assumed the show — which is about a group of misfits lost in space — would just be an American copy of Red Dwarf. I certainly did. And then I watched it, and discovered it was much, much more.

OK, I watched a few episodes.... If it wasn't for Joel and Trace, this would almost be unwatchable. (Sorry everyone else on that cast.) But, fortunately, they are in that cast - and, as such, soooo watchable. 

And, probably, a weirdly familiar setting for Joel and Trace.

Ok, this is the crazy stuff they were proposing getting funding for 25 years ago when I was working for the FAA weather sensing group.

I'll say now what I said then: Seriously? This is a problem? Planes are constantly being swatted out of the sky by surprise volcano attacks? Planes can't navigate around (or be grounded near) large volcanic events? How many times has a plane been knocked out of the sky by a volcanic plume in the last 100 years of aviation? Once? Twice? 5 times tops?

There are other, far more interesting / pressing / concerning public safety hazards out there.


New discoveries about ash clouds could help predict where planes can safely fly following volcanic eruptions, Edinburgh researchers find.

Mr. King, whose world-weary voice and wailing guitar lifted him from the cotton fields of Mississippi to a global stage and the apex of American blues, has died.

Well stated. Again.

That's a dialog that won't happen, because unlike picking a phone or a tablet, the watch you buy is based off the phone you own. An apple owner cannot buy a moto 360 and visa versa. So because apple loyal journalists assist apple in rewriting history so they can get into the next apple event or gain favor.

Still, there is nothing new (other than nfc on the wrist, which is neat) that the Watch (I hate that name, now I know why they chose it) brings to the table. (No, I am not counting the feel my touch bs).

What is interesting is that, even the journalists that are apple loyalists have to admit this thing is an ugly baby. There was a good compendium of pretty backhanded-yet-scathing reviews on the Verge.

This article I like because if the want to call it The Watch, then it should be compared against apple timepieces. If you're going to spend 10,000 to 17,000 on a device that will obsolete in 12 months you deserve to be parted from your money. Oh and, apparently it's not working terribly well.
