Dormi raises the bar for baby monitors - again: http://dormi.sleekbit.com/whatsnew.html
If you’re on the hunt for a new baby monitor, you might want to check out Dormi for Android before parting with any serious cash. The app just received a handful of interesting new updates — including video support.

Also thank you TC for looking after 'our baby'; here is hoping for the best for Sleekbit!

The 'one size fits all' nature of the bitcoin blockchain (giving rise to many altchains) may soon change considerably with interoperable pegged sidechains, enabling bitcoins and (!) other ledger assets to be transferred between multiple blockchains. Hello Blockstream! Go BTC!
We transform global systems of value exchange that, by design, make it possible to trust anyone. Sidechains. Blockstream's core area of innovation is sidechains, a technology focused on improving on the blockchain, the most powerful public utility for distributed trust systems.

“Don’t let anybody tell you that raising the minimum wage will kill jobs."

"And don’t let anybody tell you that, you know, it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs. You know, that old theory–trickle-down economics. That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly."

Hello!? Is this Marx speaking?!

No, its quite possibly the next president of the US, Hillary Clinton. Well, long live the democrats, and their socialist 'People's Republic of USA'!

Or, being a smart woman, she is fully aware of all the BS recited to get the masses' votes.

So which one is it Hillary? Ignorance, or deceit?

Congrats to HSBC making the news on BBC last Friday: "..In a sense your money becomes pocket money and the bank becomes your parent."

Planned obsolescence + marketing + loans. Sure sounds like the magic corporate formula of our consumer society. To achieve best results, add a bit of consumer ignorance.

All in the name of 'holy growth' and rotten economic doctrines. Never mind sustainability, never mind the waste, never mind the future.

Anyone cares for light-bulbs manufactured in the 19th century, still functioning great after ~110 years of continuous operation?

Behold our redesigned UI, with updated mic sensitivity and video streaming (hardware accelerated encoding and playback all the way down to 2.3. Gingerbread) - it only took us a year! ;)

Being a member of our beta community, you should be getting an update notification from Google Play soon.

Note that video quality is intentionally kept low for now to save bandwidth and battery life, as well as to give us a chance to deal with the expected extra load on our servers seamlessly. You too can keep tabs on your data usage - one of the new info items in Dormi's bottom drawer panel.

Please bare in mind this release is called 'beta' for a reason. Any feedback will be much appreciated!

Extra spoiler alert: all this will very soon run on your desktops as well, be it a windoze, mac, or linux machine.

Works great so far. The other night tho we were playing music from the child device and it would pick up on the sound when the song changed or there was a major tone change within the song. Is there a way it would know that if a media source is being played by the device to not pick up on sounds from that media source. I'm not a tech guy so I'm just asking. Also having the ability to have a second child device would be useful. either for another child or to have multiple points within the house to monitor kids playing.

I was lucky enough to drive the Model S P85 (sans D) a week ago, and could not agree more with the review... "As they say in Palo Alto: Auf Wiedersehen!"

U.S. government agencies claim they don't need a warrant to ask for private content—such as Gmail messages, documents, photos and YouTube videos. (Here at Google, we push back.) We urge reform to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA) to require a warrant for online info, just like for offline. 

If you're in the U.S., sign this petition to the White House today—we need 100,000 signatures to guarantee a response: http://goo.gl/N2C7Uu

I wish I could share http://www.piccoloneexistuje.cz/ with most Czech restaurants and coffee shops. And while I am at it: could you please, pretty please also automatically bring a small glass of tap water on the side?
