Well stated. Again.

"Don't buy the Apple Watch – buy a real watch instead (AAPL)" http://www.businessinsider.com/dont-buy-the-apple-watch--buy-a-real-watch-instead-2015-4

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.

Woz: Net neutrality decision a victory over 'bad behavior'
Technically Incorrect: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says that the FCC overseeing the Web will be a positive step in controlling illegality. He also describes it as a victory for consumers.

As expected, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) passed new net neutrality regulations today on a vote of 3-2, with the Commission's two Democratic..

There is a dark underside to owning a business that we don't like to talk about, but we need to understand.

Gotta love math, man. Nice consolidation of a number of models if this holds true.   #cosmology   #quantumphysics   #bigbang   #origins   #twt  
 
No beginning and no end. World without end. 
(Phys.org) —The universe may have existed forever, according to a new model that applies quantum correction terms to complement Einstein's theory of general relativity. The model may also account for dark matter and dark energy, resolving multiple problems at once.

This is a great way to approach the #antivaccination idiocy. Anti-vaxers don't seem to want to pay attention to facts and figures, so perhaps being regaled with first hand accounts might help.

Be sure to read the comments, some of those stories are pretty great.

#vaccinate your kids please. 
Vaccines save lives and prevent untold amounts of suffering. It's that simple. And yet, still, many parents refuse to vaccinate their children. But what's it like to be a child who isn't vaccinated? Today, some people who missed out on childhood vaccinations tell us exactly.

It's so good to see +Sony​ figure out that marketing matters. This campaign is extraordinary in so many ways, & the 1st ad is gorgeous. Kudos to #sony #ican #twt
Sony Mobile is here to say. In order to drive profitability, Sony is doubling down on marketing, with a new global ad campaign for the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact.

I agree with you here +Rubin Starset​... I have the xperia z2 as my main phone, and really miss wireless charging. I'm assuming a charging receiver takes up more space than the form factor allows, and they try to make up for it with the magnetic charger port, but it's not the same.

Nonetheless, I'm psyched about this campaign, it'd extraordinarily well done.

When Leonard Nimoy was approached about acting in a new TV series called "Star Trek," he was, like any good Vulcan contemplating a risky mission in a chaotic universe, dispassionate.

I love food science done well. Daniel Gritzner at +Serious Eats​ gives the results of a nice, controlled series if experiments involving different wines used in cooking. Worth a read, even if you've been cooking for a while. #twt #food #wine #cooking 
Most people say to cook with a wine you'd be willing to drink, but is that always true? We tested all kinds of wine, from cheap to expensive, light to big—and even flawed—to find out what matters and when.

New developments in SCOTTeVEST’s bid to resurrect the bankrupt seat-back pocket catalog companyA few weeks ago, the news broke that SkyMall was bankrupt. You know SkyMall - everyone knows SkyMall - that ubiquitous catalog found in the seat-back pockets of every commercial airplane in the US. Even if you didn’t love SkyMall, everyone knows what it is. I know it better than most: I sold my multi-pocket travel clothing line SCOTTeVEST inside for yea...
