Looking for review of FIDO U2F security keys e.g. Ubikey et. al. There are many options even with one brand.

I'd like something that can work with my Android phone using NFC, in addition to via USB on a computer.

"Even if everything goes well, you'll be hunted by dragons."
Sorry, no model numbers were given, so it's not clear which ones are considered stolen dragon treasure. Possibly this risk applies to all of them.

Goal: watch Netflix on a TV using my unlimited data Verizon plan. No, Chromecast is not the answer.

Wired connection ok, Miracast would be nicer.

I have a VZ Note 2 with cracked screen that in in the drawer but the SIM holder needs to be replaced. I have the part but may pay a shop $45 to do the work.

Note 2 supports MHL. My recollection is it runs pretty warm and am not sure even having a charger keeps up with battery drain. Obviously can swap battery...

Tough.
In a new statement, the American Heart Association warns that exercise doesn’t seem to undo the health effects of excessive sitting.

+Greg Batten there's also the idea that maybe active people are just healthier, not because the activity.

You've heard of speed dating. How about speed baptisms?
CHARLOTTE, NC—Regular attenders of Elevation Church reported being surprised Sunday morning when they were directed to the “new balcony entrance” for seating. “We normally get there early so we can sit as close to pastor Steven as possible,” Marie Dotwiler told reporters. “We were all like, ‘What’s going on?'” They did not have to wonder

I had not run across this new onion-inspired site before, but like the Onion it does seem to have a fair amount of truth in it http://adam4d.com/the-babylon-bee/

Interesting!
 
Open source hardware BLE development board that looks like a DIP chip.
OSHCHIP is a tiny development board powered by a Nordic Semi ARM Cortex-M0 Bluetooth LE / ANT SoC that neatly fits on a breadboard, and beside wireless connectivity thanks to its 2.4 GHz radio, also provides up to 14 I/Os to interface with external hardware. OSCHIP_Bluetooth_LE.

This amazes me. Can someone recommend good tool for dictating prose using Android? Is there an app that does voice rec without internet? I sometimes have no or weak internet.

I guess recording audio then later running through e.g. Dragon software could work. But I want very low friction. 
In a face-off between voice entry and typing on a mobile device, voice recognition software performed significantly better. The results held true in both English and Mandarin Chinese.

This is sort of damning with faint praise, though, by saying "a thing that sucks, sucks a little less than a different thing that also sucks". (And it's also not a full picture - there's more than one input method for mobile devices, and tapping keys one at a time is just one of them). Voice recognition has costs associated with it too - noise, privacy, etc.

Most excellent.
 
Old news but fantastic; never saw this before. (Her Zamboni video is worth watching as well! 😂)
This morning, we posted NBC anchor Mary Carillo's 2004 rant about badminton because we had never seen it before and we wanted to share it with the world. Carillo just wrote an email to us, explaining how that monologue made it on the air:
