"Agree on the one-click shopping.. don't want to derail your thread into a discussion on Amazon's data collection efforts.. suffice to say I use their products and generally like them but have misgivings nonetheless.. Yes if there ever is…"

"What are your thoughts on the 'hand jerk' controls for the new Amazon phone and/or how Kinect has been received? Definitely see how non-button interfaces have great niche applications but it's hard to unseat the simplicity of pushing…"

Endless Possibilities in User Interfacing with Myo

As an engineer, you often find solutions to problems, not the other way around. However, once in a blue moon, a solution comes along that appears so interesting and full of potential that you feel compelled to dream up applications for it. Such is the case with Thalmic Lab's…See More

"Interesting, Dan! I've always assumed it was a taxable asset with gains realized in a year or less taxed at your income tax bracket, and gains realized after a year treated as capital gains. Didn't realize the $600 limit. The real pain is…"

"Yeah, Mike, decentralization is inherent to most crypto architecture. Simply preventing merchants from accepting it though can be a real drag or even showstopper on adoption.  Fascinating article you posted... Windows XP will be end-of-life-d…"
