We saved $100 per month cutting cable, even after paying for the next faster tier of internet service. Never looked back. Now we just do Netflix and Amazon VOD. I’ve got no problems paying for whatever content on Amazon since we never get close to $100 per month in spending on it.

I can maybe see recordings being done both ways and having the playing unit pick which to use depending on if the headphones are plugged in or if its playing over speakers. Maybe even a few bonus profiles, like for the tiny speakers on your phone. Data storage medium is already so cheap, and audio is relatively low Read more

Its also a great way to figure out how to relate to and show love to your kids more effectively.

There used to be a Mexican resteraunt in Daytona named “Nacho Mama.”

That stupid Apple Airport Extreme. It couldn’t function for more than a day without needing to be rebooted.

You really need the equivalent of an optical transistor to really unlock light-based computing. Then you get not only interconnects, but everything. Routing, logic, computation....the whole enchilada.

They are already testing in Austin, TX. I just saw them last week while waiting for the EV charger at a local dealership. Got to talk to them for a bit while we were waiting. Cool guys. The car looks production ready as is, but they said it costs a crap-ton in its present form.

There’s really no reason that evolution and the biblical account can’t both be true at the same time. I don’t get why this has to be such a big deal, other than ignorance and politics.

Sure, that’s why when laying out a board like you break a 90 degree turn into two 45 degree turns, and so on. But do you really think the configuration we’re talking about here is one where the turn radius is tight enough and the data rate is high enough to cause problems? Unless you are trying to run gigabit speeds Read more

Ahh, okay. I haven’t owned a watch in over 20 years, but in my head I’ve got a picture of a strap that’s wide and thick and doesn’t really flex a whole lot beyond what it takes to get wrapped around your wrist, and that’s mostly at the ends. A good portion of the strap, if I remember correctly, doesn’t bend much at Read more

I’m not sure what you are picturing, but there are lots of ways to get electrical connectivity from a watch to a watch strap that don’t require stretchable conductors. Especially if you are only talking about 2 conductors (power/ground) or even 4 conductors (USB). In fact, I think the Apple watch already has that, and Read more

A hinged connector (like in laptops) already takes care of that much more cheaply and reliably.

- You only need the criss cross thing if you want it stretchy. I still have no idea why you would want to do this, though. Read more

Ummmm...what? Impedence control in conductors has been well understood and modeled since at least the 70’s. Or at least the 90’s by the time I took it in college. That’s not the problem.

And its still not an actual use case for this kind of thing.

I don’t get what the application is for this. If its wearable tech, then just use a tiny (non-flexible) microchip and some wires. Wires are flexible enough already. If you need stretch, then sew a zig-zag pattern of wires into some elastic.

Even then, what’s the application? What wearable tech are they aiming for that Read more

Doug Johnson had a pretty good backup career. Stayed in for the minimum 10 years to get a sweet pension when he retired at the ripe old age of...30? 35?

Oof...this reminds me of the worst flight we ever took with our kids. They behaved just fine. I was the exhausted idiot who kept forgetting I had a broken seat tray that tilted down. Read more
