Some US history that you probably didn't learn in school.

Good for Apple to once again improve on an already good phone camera. Fingers crossed that Google + HTC can figure out how to surpass even that, as they did with the previous generation of their phones.

Remember, folks, competition is a Good Thing if you care about products and services improving over time.

Random thoughts this morning:
1) NFL players kneeling for the anthem was NOT a "freedom of speech" issue until the President weighed in. Before that, it was some private employees doing something on private property, which isn't regulated by the Constitution. Once the POTUS starts saying they should do something, then the Constitution starts to apply because it's a threat of the government restricting free speech rights. At least that's my understanding.

2) I've been on a news diet since this Spring because I was starting to get seriously depressed at the constant barrage of awfulness associated with this new administration and Congress. I was feeling better. Then, last night, I went and binged on news and Twitter and G+ and all that nagging cynicism and dread came rushing back. I didn't make the connection between my feeling emotionally terrible this morning until I realized all the news I'd consumed last night and this morning, and it hit me. That is some seriously messed up shit when even just reading about it can affect you so badly.

3) In case you missed it -- I posted it late last night -- there's a new #drawninpowerpoint relevant to recent events: http://www.drawninpowerpoint.com/2017/09/priorities.html

I recently bought a pair of these Lazer Tag Phoenix LTX "laser tag" guns on recommendation from a friend of mine and they are quite good. They work well, seem pretty sturdy, make all the right sound effects, and have a nice array of features, including solo mode + 2-team mode, and indoor/outdoor selectors. And they're not terribly expensive, at least not compared to paying to go to an actual laser tag place. We (my kids and I) have been having an utter blast with these for the past couple weeks, and some friends got some and they're having the same good experience.

No, I don't get a commission or anything...just passing along a really fun toy.

One has to wonder why Trump has only criticized BLACK athletes so far.

If you've followed this collection for a while, you might remember that I'm a fan of Tech Report's system guides. I've used them for years to base my personal PC builds from and they've never steered me wrong. The newest one just got posted.
