Nothing like a robot that can deliver a quality beating! Nice work though.

The dog's reaction is priceless. It's like"Uh, Russle, should I be freaking out about this? No, it's cool? All right, I'm gonna lay down, 'Kay?"

+Jason Hoffman Ha ha, this was not the first time that Xiao Bai saw the robot go beserk. The first time she hid under my chair. Unfortunately I did not have the camera running then. I had just fixed a bug in the code and was very surprised when it went berserk on me.

When you write emails, do you feel obligated to use an exclamation point after a stand-alone "Thank you?"  I do. If I put a period after it ("Thank you."), for some reason it feels rude, as I'm being curt to the recipient.

Three years ago today Steve Jobs died.  By all accounts he was a total ass-hat to everyone, but he never would have let a train wreck like iOS 8 out of the gate.  I think I've said it before, but I'm surprised it took three years for the product line to turn to diarrhea. However, it's been since the last time the company was without his leadership that they had this many boners in a row. (Who remembers Apple's 640x480 camera?)

Anyway, I really love my Galaxy Gear Neo 2.  Which I'm wearing right now.

Limor Fried, 35, founder of the electronics and tutorial company, Adafruit

Ever want to make your own mini robot? Fried's company, Adafruit, makes that possible, selling open-source hardware kits to let tech gurus or everyday hobbyists DIY their own products. It all started when Fried made her own MP3 player and put the how-to on her website. "People kept emailing me, saying, 'I saw your project, and I want to build that too. Can you send me a kit?'" she says. "So I thought, Maybe I should start a company." Fried, the first female engineer ever to appear on the cover of Wired, did just that, and last year Adafruit earned more than $22 million in revenue. 

Her words to live by: "I get to choose my own destiny. And you can look however you want because you're the boss."

This is an amazing group of women!
