New IEMs from Noble!
Noble Audio has just introduced the Katana, a unique 9 drivers per side design and priced it $200 higher than the $1650 10-driver K10. It uses bespoke drivers rather than off-the-shelf units and we might be looking at a new flagship here, replacing the 3 years old K10.

I'll of course be doing my very best to somehow sweettalk my way into reviewing this new wonder! 
Here at Noble, we craft some of the finest universal and custom in-ear monitors available today.

A dumb thing to do on a sunny day.
I keep my hair short,very short. We're talking 5-6mm, as I have thick, curly hair and I really don't want to look like a Disney's Brave cosplay every day. This means that going outside in the sun requires either a hat or rubbing sun tan lotion on the stubble, thus giving me the choice between sweaty hair or greasy hair.

So today I decided to shave my dome for the first time in 15-ish years,because that would totally solve all the problems mentioned above. Well, yes. And introduce a new one. Shaving your own head can be a bit tricky, but don't worry, sun lotion is AMAZING for finding every single little nick and cut!

This is pretty cool. Not too cool, but exactly as cool as it needs to be, as efficiently as possible.
 
Something interesting that we can finally talk about: the AIs are controlling their own datacenters, and it knocks about 15% off our power usage. More specifically, we designed a deep learning system to control things like cooling fans, windows, and other things related to power and cooling, with the objective of minimizing power needs. It turned out that this sort of system reliably outperformed manual control by a lot - enough that we've gradually transitioned datacenters to fully automatic operation.

This is one of those examples of how machine learning can be really useful; at any given instant, its decisions may be roughly as good as a human's would be, but it can make those decisions every few milliseconds and continually adjust things in a way a person couldn't. I expect to see technologies like these greatly increasing the efficiency of all sorts of infrastructure, from power to transport, over the next few years - with corresponding savings in both money and resource usage. 
Google just paid for part of its acquisition of DeepMind in a surprising way.

Så fik jeg endelig læst lidt om den nye knivlov...
Sund fornuft i dansk lovgivning? I never thought I'd see the day! 😮

Selvfølgelig må man ikke tage en Kabar med på Crazy Daisy, men i eftermiddag vil jeg tage min Gerber Remix Tactical med på krabbefisketur med god samvittighed. Det er en skarp og sikker lommekniv der passer godt i lommen og ligger godt i hånden, men skulle jeg slå nogen ihjel ville jeg nok foretrække en kokkekniv eller en havespade frem for Gerberen.

Samtlige partier på Christiansborg stemte i dag for regeringens nye knivlov. Jægere, friluftsfolk kan igen finde lommeknivene justitsminister Søren Pind (V).

PIE!
Went to pick up the two elder minions from the dragons in-laws and decided to bribe them with apple pie. Lots of brown sugar and butter forms a cinnamon caramel that covers the apples perfectly and just sits there under the crumble top, waiting to be devoured with ice cream on the side.

Algorithms done right
Google Plus suggests 50 new communities that I would probably love. All are dead wrong, some are about things I downright loathe.

Spotify suggests a playlist that might be up my alley and within the first 9 tracks I've found 7 new (to me) artists whose albums I now absolutely need to own.

One of these companies is doing it right.

Toe-out?
Last time we were racing the RC cars on the road, a kid about 5-6 years old asked my son if he could try his WL Toys "Terminator" truck. Sure, my son let him have a go at it, and 3 seconds later the kid had slammed the car into the curb at a 45° angle, going full throttle of course. Turns out that this will snap the steering linkage and teach my son that while it's a good thing to be kind and share your toys, sometimes it's better to say no.

Ahh well, this is why we race RC cars instead of real ones. A complete steering linkage is $5 and even I have the skills to replace it. 😊

Such a lovely read about how lovingly pretty much any industry will screw its customers if we let them.
