At WWDC this year, I hosted a bunch of podcasters in IDG’s podcast studio. (You can drive up to Mill Valley and use my garage next year, folks.) During the recording of Accidental Tech Podcast, I noticed something interesting: Marco Arment was streaming his show live from his iPad.

Bookmarking for later. I’d love to get into livestreaming stuff, but right now there’s really nothing for me to stream.

whoever told me to give agents of shield another chance, bless you

because while episodes 1-2 sucked and episodes 3-8 were kinda campy episodes 9+ are stellar

this actually inspires me to go back and finish the season too

Agents of Shield’s best point is how it fit into the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe. Which meant they couldn’t really put the characters in true peril until Cap 2 was released, at which point [stuff] gets real.

So yeah, give AoS a chance. It gets better.

(Being the nitpicky people we are in regards to design, if Bob’s pose is that half eyed sleepy look, that’s not his best pose for promotional use..haha. ) 
ANYWAY, excited! There is some fantastic animation  and the show is just charming all the way. We understand it can be a little daunting at first, but we hope this new show grows on you (get it?), and that it will be enjoyable for a new generation of kids (and adults!) Be on the lookout for the new look on the FB page. :)

Radio Shack stores seem to be just the right size. The key would be to curate only the best-of-the-best Android devices, Google devices, Microsoft devices, Sony devices, etc. Not everything, just the best.

Then lay those items out around the store to let people try them out and compare. And have experts around to help. Experts not paid on commission. Experts who aren’t f—ing clueless (go into a RadioShack store now, most employees are clueless about current technology). Actual experts in the various gadgets and ecosystems.

[…]

Again, don’t offer everything, just the best things. Partner with The Wirecutter or someone who excels in this type of curation. Be the place people trust to sort through the gadget clutter.

It doesn’t even have to be RadioShack. Yes, it’d be awesome if they could pull it off, but I’d be happy to see ANYONE do this. I’ve kicked the idea around in my own head enough as it is.

9 Months On, Koch Fears Realized After Town Raised Minimum Wage To $15

In January, the town of Seatac, Washington, put in to effect a new $15 per hour Minimum Wage. No ramp ups, no tiered implementation. One day it was the state standard, the next, the highest minimum wage in the nation.

Really impressive.

What happened when Apple wanted to CNC machine a million MacBook bodies a year? They bought 10k CNC machines to do it. How about when they wanted to laser drill holes in MacBook Pros for the sleep light but only one company made a machine that could drill those 20 µm holes in aluminum? It bought the company that made the machines and took all the inventory. And that time when they needed batteries to fit into a tiny machined housing but no manufacturer was willing to make batteries so thin? Apple made their own battery cells. From scratch.
