This little guy is going to be my new CI server. It's an Intel NUC (model NUC5i5RYH). It's 4x4x2 inches and it has a 5th generation Core i5 processor with Intel HD Graphics 6000, Gigabit ethernet as well as 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4, 4 USB 3.0 ports, mini display port and HDMI, 7.1 surround sound audio, 16 GB memory, and a 1TB SSHD. All for $587 including shipping. A comparable Mac Mini costs $1049... and then I'd still have to replace OSX with Ubuntu.

This would make an excellent little desktop unit. It even comes with a VESA mount so you can mount it to the back of your flat screen monitor.

It runs Ubuntu 15.04 beta like a champ. In fact I'm posting this from the device.  The hardware is very new, so 14.04.2 LTS did not have the required drivers. Once Canonical releases 15.04 and backports the drivers to 14.04.3 LTS, I'll probably switch it to that.  But for now, it runs great!

Here's the full list of specs:

No, I think it's a combination of the low lighting and crappy phone camera with an assist from me not being a very good photographer.

OK, I posted this question in the Motorola Moto 360 forum, but I thought I'd ask here too.

My phone and my Moto 360 are both running Android 5.0.1. I had to factory reset the Moto 360 and now it seems to be stuck in the GMT timezone. The time is correct (except ahead by 5 hours since I'm in EST) and NYC and SF times are displayed properly in their respective displays on the "Dials" watch face. However, no matter which watch face I use, the local time is always displayed in GMT. There doesn't seem to be a place to change it on the watch, in the Android Wear app, or the Motorola Connect app.

Anyone else have this problem or know how I can change it?

Yeah, that's what I thought at first too. So I reset it again and verified that I picked English (United States).

Wouldn't really make for a good user experience anyway. Your watch should get the time and timezone from the paired phone. Otherwise, you'd be stuck in whatever timezone you initialized the watch in. That's not very useful.

Geofencing at this month's meeting.
 
"Walk right in, sit right down, geofence, you've been crossed."

Learn how to add geofences to your Android apps in Cincinnati on April 15th!
One of the coolest (and possibly creepiest) things about our phone is that it usually knows where we are in the world based on our coordinates in the GPS (Global Positioning System).  With that data we can make our apps do some pretty cool things!  Geofences define a GPS point and a radius in meters to create "triggers" for action.  I will show you how to setup the Google Maps API and add geofences to any application.

Not a bad article. I always thought that opening a Mac would be more difficult than a normal laptop. Apparently not. My favorite part is that they replace the hard drive with a Samsung SSD. I wonder if that requires giving the Macbook an immunosuppressant to prevent rejection. :-)

It's very simple. I did that with my MbPro the very first day after the purchase. And with 30 more minutes of work I changed the dvd drive and put a 1TB HDD to hold data using this: http://www.amazon.com/OWC-Doubler-Optical-Mounting-Solution/dp/B00724W0N2

Typical sports bar with good food. Love their Fricken Chicken sandwich.

Very good food at a reasonable price. The gyros and are large and very tasty.

They have a large supply of batteries. I've had no problems buying replacement UPS batteries there. Some of their staff is knowledgeable, but not all, so if you don't seem to be getting the information you need from the person who is helping you, politely ask if there's someone else who knows more that you can talk to.

Surprising good. From the outside it looks like a dive, but inside is much nicer. Food was great. Service was responsive if you ask -- they were a bit understaffed.

I recommend the spinach-feta-gyro omelet. It's a little unusual, but yummy. The home fries are very bland, but after the omelet, I was full anyway. It's a good mom & pop style breakfast restaurant.
