So that gold Apple Watch is $10K+ and the Moto 360 .... ~$300. Lovin' my Moto 360 even more!

Year old Moto 360 still looks better.. Demo person asked more questions about it my Moto 360 than I had about the Apple watch. 😅 #Moto360

We get another look at a speeder in the latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. How fast was it moving? Video analysis included.

How's this for advertising!

Star Wars will be EVERYWHERE.
Japanese carrier ANA has launched a five-year "Star Wars Project" that includes a new 787-9 Dreamliner painted with an R2-D2 livery.

I predict it will be only marginally better than Lucas' last three outings. Like Star Trek, the franchise is past the point of diminishing returns; it needs to rest for a generation or two to get its mojo back.

Sending locomotives to hell.

"If Dante were a railroad engineer, the Norden tunnel under Sierra Nevada’s Donner Pass would probably be his tenth circle of hell."

So GE tests Locomotives there. Naturally. And these are not your grandfather's locos. These are connected, data-generating, fuel-sipping brilliant machines.

I wonder what embedded computing technology is rugged enough to enable all this?

No fans allowed.

When you build rugged computers, moving parts like fans are not an option. That's why we are so excited about these actuators.

Are you serious!

Look at those cup/glass holders. And yeah - I'd replace my glove compartment with an "ottoman/storage/television/work tray" any day! 

Never thought I'd be so jealous of the Chinese.

Getting used to America.

Don't think I will ever get used to this big connection between religion and politics like they have here in the US.

Completely separate as far as I'm concerned.

Rand Paul, Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton all spout pious religious lies. We must grill them on what they really mean

I grew up here, and I'm not used to it. Seems exactly opposite the reason this country exists.

Marriage inequality - Star Wars style.

This is apparently a letter sent to George Lucas from a young Star Wars fan. 

The good Jedi cannot marry, but the evil Sith can? Shhhh.... don't tell the Republicans - THAT certainly does not sound like the biblical definition of marriage.

Story

Tech Geek with a varied mix of interests. I am curious. I ask questions. A lot of questions.
Introduction

As a citizen of the U.K., Australia and the U.S. I've been an immigrant somewhere my whole life.... I tend to see things from a different perspective - an outsider's perspective - a non-pop-culture perspective.

I use G+ to to engage, to learn, to debate and to challenge my own thinking. 

I am not on G+ to seek attention or build my "personal brand". I do not promote my business here, although you might see some of my professional blog posts as they make their way through G+ to other social networks.

I will post almost any subject that comes to mind, seeking feedback and opinion. Most of my posts involve Technology, Gadgets, Food, New England, Travel & Culture.

I see no need to avoid politics and religion since those subjects are important and can generate the most engaging discussion. 

I circle smart people, witty people, funny people, strange people, geeks, writers, poets, photographers and contrarians - I circle a lot of people who have opposing opinions/beliefs to mine, but I quickly uncircle if I find they cannot engage in civil debate.

If you circle me, please drop me a note and introduce yourself.

Is it a proper Chippie?! So today I decided to do something I've been meaning to do for some time - hit up the Ye Olde English Fish and Chip Shop in Woonsocket, RI (10 mins down the street from me). Is it a proper Chippie? Well... the closest I have had in the U.S. The fish was awesome (proper batter). The chips were ... well .. like the chips I would get back in Australia in one of those country Fish 'n Chip shops at 3 in the afternoon when there is 0% foot traffic - soggy and oily. Still - not bad. Take out is in proper white newspaper (just like Australia). They also serve the typical New England fried clams, clam chowdah and Lobstah Rolls. $9.50 for that plate - a little steep, but you could spend the same amount for a sandwich and fries. So ... will I go back....? Probably get the Family take-out one night in future.

Enjoyed dinner here last (Monday) night. My wife and I sat on the "front patio". The food was excellent. We had the Goat Cheese Flan for an appetizer. I had a perfectly cooked Pork Chop and my wife had the Salmon - right off the regular menu. Both dishes were excellent. Weather was perfect - more like fall than early August, but the mosquitoes still made themselves known towards the end of the meal. Our server re-located us inside for dessert. Service was a little slow, but not bad. They had some sort of company function on the (nicer) back patio which seemed to have overwhelmed the wait staff. We will definitely be going back. Maybe when the leaves change in fall or to sit by the fire in Winter. Highly recommended if you are looking for a place off the beaten path and away from the tourist traps in downtown Plymouth.

Very, very slow service. I ordered a salad and when it did not show after 45 mins, I had to cancel and run to my flight.

Beautiful dog - bad breeding and placement. Not for families. We contacted Munster Abbey in '08 to discuss the purchase of a GSD puppy for our family. My wife spent a considerable amount of time on the phone with Donna discussing our needs, the fact that we had three children and we wanted a good family dog. We were impressed with the owners' knowledge, years of expertise and the fact that their views on over-vaccination of dogs, dog food and training matched our own. We stated that we wanted a female dog, since we have had good experiences with the temperament of the last three dogs we owned. Donna advised us that a male dog would be just fine, although males tend to require extra training. She advised us that she had the "perfect" puppy for our situation and so we placed a deposit and traveled to Minot Maine to pick him up. Our first warning sign should have been the fact that they would not allow us to see the puppy's sire - Rock. They told us that he had been trained as a guard dog and was very aggressive. We could not even see him from a distance. Our puppy was a fidgety little thing, very cute (as puppies are) and the owners treated us well while we were there. On returning home, the puppy was a terror. He would never stay still and was constantly biting our children. We thought this was just "puppy", so we worked on obedience training as we have done with four dogs over the years. However this puppy turned out to be more of a handful and we were alarmed by the constant biting. We worked with a trainer who advised us that the puppy was fear-aggressive and that we will need to work vigorously on obedience training and get him plenty of exercise. He turned into a large, very handsome GSD - typical of the breed. He was great with our family, but was always nervous. He did bite us a few times when he felt threatened (inexplicably) and he had lashed out barking at a few visitors. Finally one afternoon someone accidentally opened the door while he was out and he lunged and viscously attacked a UPS delivery man. Our trainer, veterinarian, breeder-friend all advised that we Euthanize him as he was a danger to our family and his aggression was genetic. We contacted Munster Abbey a few times over the dog's three year life. At one point we told them that he was not a good fit for our family. Donna informed us that they would NOT take him back. Worse - they inferred that it was our fault, that we should not have selected a Male dog "if you can't handle it". They basically recanted everything they had previously told us. They offered no assistance. So my advice: Do not rely on their expertise to place the right puppy with you. Make sure you know what you are doing. We had a good-looking and healthy dog, with very poor temperament. I would not recommend this breeder for families, and I have seen other reviews online that have experiences eerily similar to ours.

Probably one of the best New York Strip steaks I have ever had. The Greek salad had little potato cubes in it for an interesting twist - recommended. Had creamed spinach (too creamy for me - more like a sauce), asparagus, and mushrooms were excellent side dishes.

Met a few people for dinner while on a business trip. It was early, ~6pm on a Tuesday. Place was not busy when we arrived, but I noticed it filled up fast and people were waiting when we left. I went for the New York strip which was cooked perfectly - charred on the outside, dark red inside. It had a little too much seasoning (I suspect a ton of sodium) for my taste. The side of Salt and Vinegar fries was OK. Food came out very quickly (no appetizers or salad were ordered). I would come here again if traveling in the region.

Order take-out almost once a week. This is the best authentic Thai and Vietnamese around. Excellent value for your money and the owners are very friendly. The Pho was so-so, but then - I ordered it for take-out. Not sure if it is more authentic when you dine in.
