Intel's Kaby Lake chip brings a modest bump in performance and some amazing video optimizations, as the third chip on the company's aging 14-nm process.

How about some specs? Battery capacity? Recharge time? Range city/hwy? Price?Love the vintage look, not sure about comfort with that seat though... ;o)  Congratulations on your bike, I wish you much success!

Hey New Scientist, why the 4:3 videos? It's not 1992 you know. Try some 16:9 HD next time.

Ha! This is awesome stuff. Glad to see oh-so-serious Honda showing a little humor. I think a good rubberized case can do the job as well as airbags but for the sake of humor, this is great.

It's amazing how computers can be so small, yet this operation is enormous. It's like something out of the Forbin Project.

Introduction
I live in Portland, Oregon, which is my hometown. BS in Communications from Univ. of Oregon, 1992. Go Ducks!
Bragging rights
Got a great kid, stepson and wife. And I live in Eden (aka Portland). Bragging complete.
Education
  • U. S. Grant High School
    Journalism, 1980 - 1984
    The usual stuff, plus a lot of photography and journalism. I also ran film projectors, early video equipment, handled sound for assemblies, drama productions and so forth. Yep, pretty much the A/V guy.
  • University of Oregon
    Journalism/Film, 1986 - 1992
    Took a lot of breaks to earn money for school but made it through eventually. BS in Communications/Journalism. Worked at KEZI as a staff writer/reporter while in school.
  • Mount Hood Community College
    Radio Broadcast/Audio Engineering
    Most of the work I did at MHCC was to get the simple stuff out of the way before I went to Oregon, but I spent a lot of time in their broadcast studios, did some DJ work and mixed some sound as well. Good stuff.
