Just got one - so much fun to fly! My 8-year old was pretty enthused about trying it as well, once I got the trim adjusted. Being so small, however, it's VERY dynamic - you need to use about 1/3 of the control input you think you do, otherwise it'll shoot away and get stuck on the ceiling or under furniture. Suggest adjusting the trim while it's flying 1/2 inch off the ground in "ground effect" so you can not worry about the height while you adjust the other characteristics.

I have to trim after swapping batteries, so I do trim it while barely off the ground, and then further trim about three feet off the ground after that to get it perfect.  My first battery is pretty much shot at this point.  I get about two minutes of flight while my other battery offers about six minutes.  It will be nice when they offer batteries only.  I'm using the modded set up to get the long flight time and I'm about done with the original battery.  Good luck with yours, they are indeed lots of fun.

Ok, this is seriously fun. The best suggestion in the comments? Sean, who suggested the day's xkcd comic with your toast. #shutupandtakemymoney
 
A Toaster That Prints Your Daily Weather Forecast

Its a pretty neat time to be alive... How about a toaster that wireless connects to your local weather.. and then prints it out for you. :)

What other things can you think of that you would want printed on your morning toast in this manner?  :)

wow. I really like Tim's phrase "thin value". (credit to Umair Haque, who used it first)
Tim O'Reilly originally shared:
 
Despite the Linkbait headline, this piece about the hollowing out of US manufacturing is the best thing I've read in a long time.

Interestingly enough, I woke up this morning thinking that I ought to write a book on a related subject, a meditation on my mantram: Create More Value Than You Capture: an ecosystem approach to business.

There's a drumbeat of thinking on this subject these days, a realization that much of modern business has lost its way, that it's been focused on creating what Umair Haque calls "thin value" (money extracted from customers without real value creation), and that we're reaching the end of an era.

It's easy to dismiss this stuff as defeatist thinking about the decline of the US. It's important instead to learn from it, and to start the painful process of change.

Well... the reference was courtesy of Google, but I do think that there was someone from Pumping Station One who visited LVL1 a few weeks back.

Brought our bird to Dr. Sakas with a recurring case of bumble foot (staph infection). Dr. Sakas cleaned out the wound and took the time to demonstrate and make sure we understood the post-op care. Excellent bedside manner, and understands birds well. Very pleased with the care and price.
