I'm unsure if I could stomach more than one per minute . . .

Really love this concept design. They just need to figure out a way to power a smart watch with an automatic/kinetic movement.

Amazon recently gained a patent for "Anticipatory Shipping," Basically, they'll ship most of the way to you before you actually order. Predictive analytics using insane amounts of customer purchasing information.

I think THIS is what they mean by "big data."

I love Amazon, but their use of patents to bar other companies from developing this and the 1-click purchase functionality fills me with sorrow.

A really mesmerizing cinemagraph. Watch what she does after the last pedal...

Who would have thought that it would take a full 16 minutes and 47 seconds before she finished plucking the petals. Totally worth it for the big finish, though, Scott. Thanks for the heads up.

One of the things we've discussed lately in marketing academia is the future of empirical analysis. Eventually, we'll have so much data and enough computing power to just run a program and come up with these kinds of correlational findings with regularity.

The problem with big data is that it hints at theory, but doesn't actually care about it. "Generalization gives way to distraction."

Phoenix was on the list of Google Fiber expansion cities announced today. Honestly, I don't care. It might actually be a bad thing.

We're all trying to keep fixed costs in check. We already know that  current ISPs have operating costs way below their pricing (granted the cost to build infrastructure for distribution is usually pretty high). Google Fiber adds a ton of perceived value that won't actually be realized by 99.9% of subscribers and allows Google to keep pricing high.

What I'd really like to see is a service provider who can match Google Fiber's pricing at lower tiers. To me, 500MB/s download speeds at $35/mo sounds pretty dang good.  70MB/s speeds at $5/mo sounds near perfect.

Let me know when that shows up.

A really great video that should give you pause. We post a lot of personal info on social media. But do we care how people use it?

It is essential to be aware of our image everywhere - both on personal and professional sites. If you don't want it on the front page of the newspaper, then don't post it online.

We were in town on vacation and came to Concho's purely on account of the online reviews and were not disappointed. I couldn't tell if the place was a bar or family-friendly from the outside, but it was just fine for our family (although I wish I would have noticed the nice, misted patio out back and eaten there). We had a delicious meal, reasonably priced, with excellent, warm service from the owner. The chips and salsa were amazing! We would definitely return the next time we're in the area.

We've lived at The Falls for 2 years and aside from the pretentious name, everything about the place has been fantastic and we couldn't be happier. Friends of ours are moving into the complex at our recommendation next month. We've always tried to be low-maintenance tenants and management has always been extremely nice and responsive to any service requests we've had. It feels like management is constantly looking for ways to improve the grounds since we've been here (resurfacing the tennis court, laying new carpet on stairs and hallways, trimming trees, repairing parking covers, keeping the pool well-maintained, etc). The grounds are very quiet and feel safe. There's even a paved alley connecting the Falls with nice, walkable residential neighborhoods behind the complex that we use constantly. The residences are pretty quiet. The insulation between adjacent apartments kept out nearly all noise, even when we had neighbors with a newborn. We had more sound issues with downstairs neighbors with loud music and late parties though. I definitely recommend trying to get into a 3rd floor apartment - probably a little safer, quieter, and more spacious feeling with the vaulted ceilings. I've loved the exercise room--plenty of nice equipment and it's rare to see more than 1-2 people there at a time. Racquetball & basketball courts are also almost never in use. All-in-all, no complaints. It's a great place. You'll just have to weigh it against the price they're charging, which can fluctuate (and has increased a bit each year we've been here).
