I get hands on for +HACKADAY with the new 11-6 inch Pinebook, a 64-bit Quad Core ARM-based laptop that is selling for just $89. I take mine apart so you don't have to!

Machine learning algorithms are now being applied in the real world, to the production of physical products, and maybe it’s reassuring to know that amongst the first is beer. The world’s first beer, brewed with the help of machine intelligence, is now on sale.

Taking about the end of Moore's Law, and the possibility that it might not be a bad thing. That it's possible our children will grow up with computers that are not much faster than we use today. But it might not matter, because we may well have reached the point where our computing is “good enough.”

The most common business model supporting the current generation of Internet of Things devices is the one time purchase of a thing. However these things then almost always rely on an cloud service to make it “smart,” and that appears unsustainable. The model has proved so fragile it may bring into doubt whether cloud architectures are the right fit for devices aimed towards mainstream consumers. #iot
