I'm famous!
Okay, technically it's not me. But I think I still have my Kevin Kolb jersey. Not sure if I've ever worn it.

Funny little story -- a quotation from a character who feigns an interest in reading ends up on the English ten pound note, presumably because someone found the quotation out of context and no one involved in the decision had ever read Pride and Prejudice or could be bothered to read even a few lines of context. Either that, or they just felt it was a nice sentiment, despite its source.

I've reproduced the quote below with the minimal needed context, and the part on the banknote in italics (mine).

"Miss Bingley's attention was quite as much engaged in watching Mr. Darcy's progress through his book, as in reading her own; and she was perpetually either making some inquiry, or looking at his page. She could not win him, however, to any conversation; he merely answered her question, and read on. At length, quite exhausted by the attempt to be amused with her own book, which she had only chosen because it was the second volume of his, she gave a great yawn and said, 'How pleasant it is to spend an evening in this way! I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book!—When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.'

"No one made any reply. She then yawned again, threw aside her book, and cast her eyes round the room in quest of some amusement..."

I don't get excited about new gadgets too often, but I'm excited about this one.
Google just announced Chromecast today. It's a small, $35 device that can stream YouTube, Netflix, music, etc. to your TV. For a limited time, you can get three free months of Netflix when you buy a Chromecast. That offer also works for existing Netflix subscribers. So when you buy this $35 device, you get $24 of free Netflix. That's a good deal.

Without peeking: is this a fake onion story or one of the true stories from the "American Voices" section.

It's from the Onion, but it seems like a perfectly sincere, reasonable commentary.

Apparently I'm not the only one who can't tell the difference between fake and real news. Although I usually figure it out when I see the story is actually from the onion.

Actually, I really just like the original story, and the accompanying photo. Youthful Tendency Disorder!

In various comparisons of this and that, the Google Compute Engine came out 4-10x faster, equivalent, 2-4x faster, 20x faster, and 4x faster. Not a bad starting point.

(Answer key: boot time, disk reads, disk writes, network bandwidth, network latency.)
