After testing a tablet (thanks for the inspiration from your lovely panoramas, +Ken Southerland!), I've decided that I'm way too input oriented to use one much, which is the conclusion I came to with my original, dust gathering ipad in days of yore. My need is really for something light weight and nimble, for to internet & write on (my 13" macbook pro is ~5lbs, which is way too much for these purposes + my poor arthritic hands). A chromebook seems like a good idea, particularly with 3g and google drive storage. Any suggestions about which? Thus far the Samsung 3g seems lightest weight and snappiest, but I do have cell phone service (Ting) with an inexpensive portable hot spot available, so maybe 3g is not an absolute.  You can def divert me and suggest another netbook/other solution entirely -- but no tablets. I'm a typer, not a toucher. Weirdest focus group ever:  +Morgan Sandquist? +Kalina Wilson? +Peter Zillmann? +Jon Van Oast? +Lisa Brandt Heckman? #netboook   #chromebook  

Has anybody ever bought a side of beef directly from a farm? I've decided to do so and would like advice about several aspects of the process (freezers, cuts, whether to meet the cow beforehand). 

Good experiences with grass fed cattle farmers in Cascadia are very welcome!

Need a timer?

Type "timer 10 minutes" into a Google search box.  Yup.

LTE Android phones! Let's rap. Could anyone make a case for why the Galaxy 4 ($630) is $340 better than the Nexus 4 ($299)? The only compelling feature separating the two for me is that the Galaxy 4 has an ultrasensitive touch screen (responds to pens, nails, gloved fingers, etc) and I have a freaky deeky autoimmune disease which results in cold hands that are not recognizable to touch screens. It's annoying enough that I've been using a Walter White phone for actual calls for six months. I guess both these phones (anything new, really) are vast improvements. Open to $_yourSuggestedPhone as well, particularly if you like your screen.

Data-mining and the US elections -- this sounds like a 1990's social engineering concept movie. 

So I guess this is definitely the place to ask what to do about my cell phone plan. My tmobile contract is up. I don't want it any more. I don't want an iPhone. I hardly ever make voice calls. I kinda like QWERTY. Dislike data throttling and am grandfathered into an unlimited tmobile plan.  What are you guys doing? Is Straight-talk any good? I am wholly unversed in prepaid phones, except for like two months when I was planning on leaving the country and smart phones hadn't happened.

systems theory applied to race and health : “Most people don’t think of racism as a social construct that affects health,” says the trained clinical psychologist, who came to Rutgers last year from Columbia University. “They think of behaviors like diet, doctor visits, and the like, not so much about how the broader processes of inequality affect a person’s ability to engage in healthy behaviors.”
