The new Xbox Kinect 2 HD camera looks awesome. The IR / night vision feature is cool - you can game in a dark room and the camera will still work. You can imagine some really cool game possibilities with it. #kinect2   #gaming  
The new Kinect is kind of awesome. Just by the numbers, it's a huge upgrade. You can see (most of) the full walkthrough we saw just a bit ago here at Microsoft's Redmond campus in the video above. Parts are jaw-dropping.

As a former Yahoo employee who worked with the company's previously acquired companies, here's what stood out to me as the most important takeaway from +Marissa Mayer 's announcement on the #Tumblr  acquisition:

"Mayer stressed that Tumblr will continue to operate as an independent company. It will retain all employees and won't even put the Yahoo logo on Tumblr's site. Tumblr will benefit from Yahoo's backing of technology and resources, which will allow the company to "innovate and release products much faster than ever before" as well as hire a "number of engineers and ad sales personnel," she said."

Sounds better.

Yahoo plans to bring ads directly on to Tumblr blogs for users who want them.

Never noticed before, but Google+ has Instagram-like filters for your photos now, pretty nice.

After installing iOS 7 preview, my immediate feeling is that iPhone has taken a big evolutionary step forward. Flat design forces discipline and minimalism, and Apple seems to have executed it very well. #iOS7   #flatdesign

The skeumorphism never bothered me that much.  I'm more excited to use iOS 7 because of all the underlying features.  Don't love the new color scheme though.

Good article comparing #NoSQL cloud offerings from Google and Amazon - Google's Cloud Datastore vs Amazon's DynamoDB.

"BigTable-based Datastore has strong consistency for reads and eventual consistency for queries, whereas DynamoDB offers people a choice of eventual or strong consistency, depending on pricing. Both systems are heavily optimized for writes."

Square launches Square Stand which effectively turns any iPad into a cash register (well, without the cash part). It's cool to be a witness to these moments of disruption.

After seeing many dentists in my life, and especially trying many in the Ontario area, I've found Dr. Min to be the most professional I've found. I have a phobia of the dentist's chair after some bad experiences with root canals - but after having several cavities filled by Dr. Min I have to say he made the experience much less painful, during and after to procedure. If you need some dental work done and live near Ontario, give Vista dental a try, I highly recommend them.
