Engadget: Motorola's legendary RAZR flip phone is making a comeback. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIw7dPRhSs
The year was 2004, and Motorola had just announced what was then an insanely thin flip phone, the RAZR V3. It was -- and still is -- a head-turner, and eventual...

Glad they did this! I've been singing it as "Girls Just Wanna Have Fundamentalhumanrights" for at least the past year. 😉

Open Web --> Locked Web. Oppose now!
Despite dedicated resistance by tens of thousands of Web users and civil society groups, Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee has allowed Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) to move to the next phase of development within the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). EME (full text) is a proposed technological ...

+Roy Ngan​​ To be clear, I was referring to the guardian article not the show. In particular, this section:

“It punches a hole through the morality of debt, through this idea that you owe X amount of dollars that the 1% says you owe. In reality, that debt is worth significantly less. The 1% is selling it to each other at bargain-based prices. You don’t actually owe that.”

Of course, the amount one owes is still the same, regardless of how much the lender sell it off for. These are debt that banks had trouble collecting on, so its 'value to the bank' is less than performing debt, and sometimes they sell it at discount. It doesn't affect the 'amount owed' one bit.

Word.
Google released Allo, Duo and Spaces in the span of one week, adding to the existing Messenger and Hangouts. That's too many chat apps for one company.

Tensor Processing Units (TPUs)
I'm very excited that we can finally discuss this in public. Today at Google I/O +Sundar Pichai revealed the TPU (Tensor Processing Unit), a custom ASIC that Google has designed and built specifically for machine learning applications. We've had TPUs deployed in Google datacenters for more than a year, and they are an order of magnitude faster and more power efficient per operation than other computational solutions for the kinds of models we are deploying to improve our products. This computational speed allows us to use larger, more powerful machine learned models, expressed and seemlessly deployed using TensorFlow (tensorflow.org) into our products, and to deliver the excellent results from those models in less time.

TPUs are used on every Google Search to power RankBrain (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RankBrain), they were a key secret ingredient in the recent AlphaGo match against Lee Sedol, they are used for speech and image recognition, and they are powering a growing list of other smart products and features.

+Norm Jouppi and the rest of the team that developed this ASIC did a fabulous job, and it's great to see it discussed in public!

Worth the long read
In February 2014 two divers died at a depth of more than 100m in a huge cave system in Norway. Seven weeks later, their three friends went back to get their bodies.

A 5 hour dive in conditions like this is crazy...demanding, dangerous and exciting all the same. Cool read. There was a similar situation in New Mexico..yeah. New Mexico near Santa Rosa.

This places really has an "anything goes" vibe to it, from the owner's selection of deco items, to the plethora of choices in the menu. The deco may miss more than it hits, but fortunately, the food is spot on for the most part. Their egg noodles are incredibly springy, and the fishball on a stick is dipped into a sauce that is like a wonderful Thai version of BBQ sauce.

Very good and authentic Malaysian / Singaporean food. Service and attitude is good, but it's obvious that this is not a restaurant opened by a seasoned restaurateur. It has all the basics right, but will take some time to iron out food preparation and assembly efficiency issues. Food quality wise, the nasi lemak will hold its own against most restaurants in Malaysia. The fragrance of the coconut in the rice comes out well and the texture is good as well. The mee siam was overly sour and bland otherwise. We had a daily special which was a Penang hokkien mee, which was excellent.

This restaurant tries to do chic fusion hard but fails on a couple of fronts. Let's start off with the good things. The sun dried paloh pork was the star of our selection that night. The pork belly was nicely seasoned and fried to perfection. Very nice creative take on a classic Thai dish. The banger and mash with paloh sauce didn't fare so well though. The herbal taste of paloh sauce just wasn't present and we had difficulty discerning it from run of the mill gravy. The salted egg fries tried hard to be different and was indeed quite different but wasn't that memorable either. The real let down that night was the service though. The waiter who took our order was scowling the entire night. He didn't know what item I was referring to in the menu and then grabbed the menu from me to look for the item when I showed it to him.

Patchy service, more due to the staff trying to do to much themselves rather than a bad attitude. The food more than makes up for it. The rum battered fried chicken is wonderfully tender inside with a crisp crunch on the outside. The gumbo had so many different textures to it, down to the mashed potatoes which seemed to alternate between fine mash and bites of crunchy young potato. Very highly recommended. Just call ahead because seats are really limited.

This shop does one thing and does it damned well. Their Assam laksa is one of the best that you can get in Ipoh without having to make a trip outstation to Penang. You won't find much in choice here but if you find yourself here, you'd have made your choice to indulge in Jimmy's delectable spicy and sour fare anyqay, right?

Old school Italian joint that's rich on vibe and good food. I had the fusilli with pork shoulder ragu and it was nicely chewy with the correct amount of richness in the ragu to go with it. The cappellini was excellent too, light and fluffy on the outside and with a burst of cheese inside.

Generally high standard for what we ordered on our first time here, which was fried calamari, tagliolini tartufo and Italian sausage pizza. Portions aren't big but adequate to come away not feeling hungry. Prices are reasonable for a quiet Soi in Bangkok suburbia. Ambience is nice and quiet on a Sunday night, with customers dropping in regularly while never filling it up. I'd come back here again readily.
