Maurice White, the founder and leader of Earth, Wind & Fire, whose genre-defying music made it one of the most successful bands of the 1970s, has died at his home in Los Angeles. He was 74.

Mast Mobile offers a different approach to managing a personal and work line: it puts both numbers on the same phone - The Verge

#iphone #mobile 
If you've ever tried to juggle two phone numbers, say a personal line and a professional line, you know how difficult and clumsy it can be. You could carry two phones around, one for your work line...

This is a great read from The New Yorker's Nicholas Schmidle (October 2015) about one young Syrian's epic journey to Sweden that puts a face to refugee crisis that has been unfolding this past year and is nearing a boiling point for the European Union.

Microsoft may be running the biggest Turing test in history

If you live in China and you've been on WeChat, there's a decent chance you've come across or at least heard of chatty teenager named Xiaoice. Xiaoice is a good listener who sometimes offers encouragement when you're feeling down. Like many 17-year-olds, she can be a bit of a smart-aleck. She's also not human.

Microsoft measured the effectiveness of their chatbot with what they're calling conversations per session (CPS), which measures the number of times the conversation goes back and forth. Typical chatbot CPS conversations have roughly two cycles (the person speaks, then the chatbot speaks — that's one cycle). "By comparison, Xiaoice’s average, after chatting with tens of millions of users, has reached 23," wrote Dr. Wang. He even claims that Xiaoice can analyze and react to your emotional state.
Microsoft's Xiaoice voice assistant is reportedly acing the Turing test, fooling many people in China that the program is an actual person.

As the armed occupation in Oregon’s high desert unfolded in January, it initially looked like little more than a widescreen version of the flare-ups we’ve seen in the West ever since the Sagebrush Rebellion erupted in the 1970s: “oppressed ranchers,” anti-federal rhetoric, and even stoic cowboy-hatted heroes to ride to the rescue. But a closer look — and the occupation’s violent culmination — revealed a bigger, more sinister problem than your run-of-the-mill local-control scuffle. - HCN

Some of Seattle's best food from a mobile taqueria. Order a breakfast burrito with eggs and beans with a hit cup if champurrado when available. For lunch, get an order of the pollo chiptlado or a plate of tamales oaxaqueno with mole. So good - but miss the old South SODO location.
