"Pew. Pew. Pew"
So Facebook went down about an hour ago and this IP Viking ‘hacking’ live visualization thing looked absolutely apocalyptic… like a Skynet-inspired simultaneous multi-nation nuclear attack graphic.

If I could magically turn the debugger on, we’d see photons bouncing throughout this world. Eventually they hit the back of your eyes, and through that, you reason about what the world is. You essentially hallucinate the world, or you see what your mind wants you to see.

That’s how many motherboards the Taiwanese manufacturer ASUS has sold since 1989. Being an ASUS fanboy in the late 90s and early 00s has seen me contribute about 0.000001% to that total.

Some whacky-cool modules for Project Ara

Nike SB Eric Koston Mid Premium "Wolf Grey"
While it is not self-lacing (yet), the colours on this Eric Koston Nike SB look pretty alright for a McFly-era hoverboard.

Yung Jake's emoji portrait

On emoji.ink, you can pick any emoji and set it as a brush and draw whatever you want. (I drew some unspeakable things that reflected my piss-poor doodling ability, had a laugh and was done with it.)

Yung Jake, decidedly of vastly superior skills, drew some fabulous portraits.

A modular watch
Blocks sounds like Project Ara, but for watches (and without the Google backing). They are looking to get crowdfunded. They also have some kind membership thing where you pay some kind of deposit. Wait, there’s also some API for developers coming up.

All the right buzzwords for a product that isn’t here yet. Meh.

Today, I had to send a fax to the auto loan department of an international bank based in Singapore. Modern computers don’t even have built-in modems anymore.

Found HelloFax. Problem solved.

I understand why consumers love streaming over purchasing albums, but they are mistaken when they think it is beneficial to the artists. I see what I make from streaming vs actual sales and theres no comparison. I make relatively nothing from streaming. For me to make the the buck I would make from one purchase of a song through streams, a fan would have to stream that same song almost 150 times.

Mercedes-Benz "F 015 Luxury in Motion"
That’s what the caption in the Wired article said and I LOL’d.

A 1.5 billion pixel image of Andromeda, a galaxy that’s about 2.5 million light years away from us. Each little dot in this picture could contain multiple planets, thriving civilizations and strange alien life forms.

But if we go looking for them, we might, you know, get completely annihilated.

That I keep listening to old Depeche Mode singles should come as a no surprise to me
Two Bombay Bicycle Club albums in my top 25 list is probably from the run-up to their gig back in July, while the fact that Sky Ferreira and London Grammar were the only two female voices sticks out like a sore thumb. My second most listened album had a title with just two words and this indulgent self-analysis ends with this second sentence.

“But why?”, one may ask. Those who don’t ask it will know and will never be able to sufficiently explain or articulate.

I haven’t watched it yet, so I don’t know if it’ll make it to my favourite films list.

Attitudes about potatoes among Millennials are very positive. Eighty-nine percent rate potatoes “excellent” or “good” for being a good value, and 88 percent rate potatoes “excellent” or “good” for being something everyone would enjoy. In fact, potatoes rate highest on what’s most important to Millennials.

With handwriting, the very act of putting it down forces you to focus on what’s important. Maybe it helps you think better.
