Seriously Airbnb? I just want to book a room. You want to read all my contacts and all about my files in Drive? Canceled this nonsense and a hotel had no problem taking just my credit card number.

Went to renew my license at the California DMV back in September. Nine months, four temporaries, and countless phone-calls later I just got my renewed license. Good until September 2017.

I've lived in California for five years but this is where I'm from.

"From 2000-09 lung cancer rates in Remington Park were twice as high as the rest of the province, according to Cancer Care Ontario".
Debby Grant, chair of the Windsor Essex Right to Know, placed white flags on the lawn of homes on Grand Marais Road, Saturday, June 13, 2015. The white flag campaign, which will have the flags collect airborne pollutants for two months, is in response to the cancer cluster discovery in the area.

American Express sends me monthly junkmail that's so fat it's as if they're trying to make it hard to shred. So I found the government-mandated opt-out mentioned in said junkmail. Let's see if it helps.

Fibre optics that bring in outdoor sunlight combined with backup LED lighting when the sun is down. I searched for these after remembering a technology show I watched many years ago that talked about early prototypes. I wonder what these look like in action.
Parans brings the sun inside. Bring the natural light from the sun inside with Parans. Experience the natural flukturation in any room.

Arduino Zero sounds like it could be interesting. Still haven't gotten around to building anything for real on a Cortex yet myself though. 
One year ago Arduino and Atmel unveiled the new Arduino Zero. Today, after some months of beta-testing, we are happy to have the board finally available for purchase on the US Store. Arduino Zero is a simple and powerful 32-bit extension of the well-known Arduino UNO.

Yeah I looked at the price after posting. Maybe if you specifically need low power but something more than a Teensy.

Walked around Maker Faire for 8 hours today and broke my "no new dev boards" rule twice. Time for dinner.
