The best baseball article or report this year. It appears to be about baseball, but it's really about U.S. society. You only need to know two things about baseball see the point: 1) Miguel Cabrera won the MVP this year; 2) Baseball statistics have experienced a revolution in the last few decades -- a revolution that has missed most old-time baseball people. (The same conflict at the center of Moneyball, BTW.)
Recently I bought some NFC tags from +NFC Tags for Droid and downloaded the NFC Tasker app from the play store to start playing around with ways to automate more of the daily tasks in my life. The best trick I have so far is to turn off mobile data, turn ringer on high and lower brightness when I'm out biking and tap my keychain.
