Don't be disheartened if you didn't vote Conservative, says Rhymer Rigby. There's plenty to look forward to over the next five years

Before the Apple Watch, there was the WristMac

Apparently, it even made it into space

Scotto passed along a few pics of this fun little item he owns. I couldn't find much info about it on the web, so I knew my website collection of oddities would be a perfect place to display these. From what I can gather, this is a data organizer wristwatch from about 1992.

Europe has a new independent sovereign state. Sort of.

I wonder if this is related to the oil price drop.

Judging from the video, you won't need to use a cable to connect the Phone to the TV.

4 Revolution has an article asking “La voiture connectée signe-t-elle la fin des feux de signalisation?” (it's asking that question in French, obviously) or as Google Translate would ask in English, “She signs the connected car late traffic lights?”, which isn't quite right but hopefully you get ...

Has the term "circular economy" blipped on anyone else's radar recently?

There's something about it that seems to be slightly odd for what otherwise looks like fairly bland corporate greenwashing ("recycling yay!") and that is that is actively against private ownership (private as in Joe Schmuck on the street private - obviously it's corporations and not the state that get to own everything). 

I've never seen "consumers will rent everything" as the headline bit when people describe the circular economy, it's always several paragraphs in after non-controversial items that most people would readily agree with. Another thing I've seen often seen is bad analogies being used (usually "it's like a pay as you go phone" when it's nothing at all like a pay as you go phone). And of course, the cargo cult of youth's holy word 'Millennial' is often invoked (as in "Millennials prefer to rent and not to own").

Maybe I'm being paranoid, but there's something here that's raising red flags in my mind.
A working circular economy could be a practical solution to the planet's emerging resource problems. Here's 10 facts you should know.
