I just watched Mr. Robot - eps1.0_hellofriend.mov on the USA NOW App and thought you might enjoy it! http://bit.ly/1hjQSgg

This show is pretty awesome. The first time I've ever seen somewhat accurate Linux CLI in a movie or TV show.

"In theory, graphene supercapacitors could be used to store much more energy per kilogram than lithium-ion batteries"
Electric cars might soon be powered with better batteries, due to a breakthrough involving graphene.

We could see temps over 130 degrees Fahrenheit within the next 30-50 years. Is it even possible for life to exist at such high temperatures?

There is no longer any technological or even economic barrier to making deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions. The chief obstacle lies in managing the change and balancing competing interests.
Global warming is a challenge so large that we can only confront it by working together. As we approach December's United Nations climate summit, in Paris, we can no longer afford to blindly trust political leaders to deliver a breakthrough. We need to build change from the ‘bottom-up'. Today hundreds of thousands of people around the world are realising that they can be part of the growing climate movement. It is clear that environmental activis...

I know that gravity is prone to everything you need to fly and my intention is not to make flying devices (aircraft or missiles), but teach individual to regain consciousness on his own wings … Further; I am trying to awake the energy contained in the air. There are the main sources of energy. What is considered as empty space is just a manifestation of matter that is not awakened. No empty space on this planet, nor in the Universe.. In black holes, what astronomers talk about, are the most powerful sources of energy and life.
Very interesting interview Nikola Tesla and John Smith in which he said: Everything is the Light. In one of its rays is the fate of nations, each nation has its own ray in that great light source, which we see as the Sun. And remember: no one man that existed did not die. JOURNALIST: Mr. Tesla,…

That's rather impressive.
John Blossom originally shared to All Things Google:
 
Chromebook Sales About to Surpass Macbook Sales: Gartner

Though more than 4 out of 5 Chromebooks are sold in the U.S., the bigger picture is that they are now about 2.5 percent of what annualised PC sales are worldwide. At the same time, Gartner recently reported PC sales declining in 1Q15 by about 5.2  percent compared to 1Q14 sales (http://goo.gl/gnSBM9). By contrast, Gartner estimates that Chromebook 2015 sales will rise about 27 percent from last year. I think that the estimate is low, perhaps my a third or a half, at least.

The main point is this: nobody wants to replace a PC unless they have to, and very few want to buy a new one if they haven't already had one. Macbook sales also continue to grow, and Gartner estimates that they rose about 8.9 percent in 1Q15 to about 1.7 million units. But here's the thing: if Gartner is saying that Chromebooks sales will be about 7.3 million units for the whole year, then Chromebook sales are about to surpass Macbook sales.

So, quietly, Chromebooks have become THE star for laptop sales.

All conference schedules (or any type of schedule) should be made this way. Simple, elegant, cross platform. Excellent design imo.

I just designed my Moto 360 and purchased it with 12 months no interest financing for $13/mo. Now that is a bargain.

So what's the best thing you've noticed so far about the Moto 360 +Dee Lanier? I'm anxious to get mine, but am also a little skeptical as to how useful it really is. I mainly want it so I can avoid touching my phone at all while driving. If it keeps me from having a wreck it will have paid for itself a thousand times over.

BTW, speaking of gadgets, the +Nest thermostat is pretty amazing. That thing has saved us over $100/mo. for the past 2 months on electricity. Already paid for itself.

Not only will Microsoft support FIDO 2.0, but the FIDO Alliance will use Microsoft Passport as the API framework for developers, meaning that within the hands of a willing developer community, its usage could spread quickly.
As passwords become more ineffective, Microsoft is betting Windows 10 will up the ante on security Windows Hello and Passport, which aim to bring biometric authentication to the mainstream.

The Ale House has good food and a great selection of local and regional craft beers. John, the owner, is an exceptionally nice guy and genuinely cares about his patrons. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is a mix of artsy, sports bar and night club all in one to provide something for everyone. They have live bands or DJ's most weekend nights with ping pong, tables and corn hole in the outside area which make for a lively nightlife. Definitely a top three food and drink destination in Black Mtn.

I joined the Spartanburg Planet Fitness with the $20/mo. membership ($1 sign up fee) on a 1-year commitment, and am extremely pleased with my decision. The atmosphere is very casual, almost like an exercise "bar" with a row of TVs in the middle to enjoy while using the treadmill or eliptical machines. There are stations for abs, legs/back, and full body as well as free weights (all self-contained with safety guards and self-spotting locks) and resistance machines for every muscle group. They're open 24/7 with a trainer available 8am-6pm. The $20/mo. membership includes access to the massage and tanning area with both chair and water massage as well as multiple tanning booths and a Beauty Angel booth for skin tone and relaxation. With all of these services at only $20/mo. ($10/mo. membership available as well w/o guest or massage/tanning privileges), there really is no excuse not to join a gym. I absolutely love it and am planning to go at least 3 times/week for a loooong time!

Excellent Thai cuisine but a bit pricey. The Thai Red Curry is very good though the number 5 isn't hot enough. The tofu soup is bland and the salads are small but the ginger sauce is very fresh. Lunch price is from $8-11 per plate.

Frisbee golf course, hiking trails, three soccer/football fields, four tennis courts, and a large playground make this the premier park in Spartanburg county. If it had a basketball court it would be perfect!

Easily the best bakery in Black Mountain. Their cakes, pastries, and breads are all excellent. The biscuits are the size of a small plate and amazing! Be sure to try the biscuit with shitake mushroom gravy.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Parking is limited, but we were seated right away at lunch time. The gyros is excellent. The mushrooms and hummus appetizers were wonderful. Or waiter was fast and extremely pleasant. Limited beer selection with no local beers.
