Google, you’re weird but you’re my kind of weird. instagram.com/p/CUP9I0DLIw7/…
Do you have any old Mac mini’s sitting on the shelf of your closet? If so let me know, I need a few for a project that has no budget.
In the latest episode of the Living on the Edge #podcast, Jason (@jasonh) and Dan (@danbenjamin) discuss #5G security, Google’s long distance lasers, shifting strategies at AWS and Microsoft, and more! #cloud #edgecomputing #MobiledgeX #LivingontheEdge livingontheedge.show/9

My dad made a “meme” and asked me to spread it as far as I can so here you go

@5by5 @hotdogsladies @danbenjamin According to this spectrograph there's indeed an unexpected ~15Khz sound in that Blues Traveler YT video! 15Khz corresponds to the high pitched whine emitted by old CRT TVs, though it normally shouldn't get into VHS recordings. Fortunately being in my 40s I can't hear it! 😀S

Thanks a lot @danbenjamin, I've had "The Hook" in my head all day. And yes, it did bring me back.

Please recommend a super inexpensive, small format windows-capable PC. Thank you.
What you *can* do is squash the tabs into an ugly, unusable set to the left of the URL bar. And who wouldn't want that?
This article is inaccurate and wrong. You actually cannot "revert the Safari redesign" (as the erroneous headline states) nor can you "switch back the old controversial look" (false content). A bummer because I like 9to5 a lot. 9to5mac.com/2021/08/10/rev…
Fact: the better the chart they posted to twitter looks, the less accurate it is.
Is anyone going to this? Do I recall that Eventbrite used to show the number of people attending an event? eventbrite.com/e/austin-podca…
Gosh these new Safari (desktop) tabs are just jarringly bad. I guess I'll be retiring Safari for a while unless any of y'all know how to get back to the previous/normal style.
A kind of penguin I didn't know existed has been killed by bees. wtop.com/world/2021/09/…
I find it interesting that this CNN article about the Havana Syndrome fails to define the Havana Syndrome. Yes it links to an article that has a buried explanation, but that's just dumb. cnn.com/2021/09/20/pol…
I just want a good BCAA without citrulline and caffeine is that too much to ask?
I don't ever want to see the "Best 10" anything. I want to see the best 3.
Hey fellow parents, play this for your kids and see how they react and what they hear that you don’t. Trust me. youtube.com/watch?v=dhcyv1…
Nice set of predictions but they are wrong because they do not list the Eagles as winning the Super Bowl from now on. bleacherreport.com/articles/29484…
Not sure why novocaine is trending, especially because novocaine hasn't been used for decades (they use lidocaine now). I've gotten cavities drilled w/o painkiller for about a decade now when I've been unfortunate enough to need one. Increasing your pain tolerance is worth it.
This is probably the only way to get the US to switch to the metric system, because we have to be different. businessinsider.com/britain-revert…
TIL Slashdot still exists.
Now pay attention, 007.
Looks like Episode 4 of #TheGowallaStory is up! @danbenjamin and I talk Facebook Places, Waze, a little Pokemon Go and other projects that carried the mantle of social mapping and location over the past few years. Also a lawnmower. gowalla.fireside.fm/4

Data I'd like to see: for people who got COVID after being vaccinated, which vaccine did they get? Do we have this data?
@danbenjamin I hope to say hello to you at the free podcaster meetup on Wed Sept 22 at Central District Brewing from 7 pm to 9 pm CT. @PodcastMovement More info: eventbrite.com/e/austin-podca…

Speaking of the Apple Watch, does anyone know of a good complication that can display the digital time on any watch face? Watchthetime! used to do this but that app has been removed. The alternatives I found don’t show the time zone so they’re useless to me.
Time for another episode of Living on the Edge! In episode 8, @jasonh and @danbenjamin discuss @Continental's new collision avoidance use case demo with @deutschetelekom and @Telefonica, @VMware's new CTO, and Mailchimp's exit to Intuit. #edge #5G #cloud livingontheedge.show/8

Shouldn't it be "Sears is closing" or even "Sears is shuttering"? But not "Sears is shutting". cnbc.com/2021/09/16/sea…
How many generations do you wait before upgrading an Apple Watch? I have a Series 5 and it seems fine. Of course none of the comparisons use the Series 5, they just show the 7, 6, and 3. Does any website compare all of the models?
Ok I dug up one of the older Apple aluminum keyboards. This one feels better. Something about the newer ones makes me feel like the flat papery keys are going to get stuck. I think I prefer a little travel distance.
@danbenjamin the most anxiety I've ever felt watching a YouTube video was the 3-second gap between me spotting this guy in your window, and you encountering him.

Yes! Zach is correct, this was the best keyboard. I had and loved this keyboard until it died from a coffee related accident. I wish they were still made. What else comes close? twitter.com/zachcollier/st…
I cannot abide the small circular keys of the Logitech K380 after trying for a couple weeks. The standard Apple keyboard isn't for me. Why won't Logitech make the MX Keys in a tenkeyless format?
@danbenjamin Also, I would be remiss were I not to mention that this was the first Minecraft video I’ve ever seen that also had the Bene Gesserit Reverend Mother in it. Bravo.

@danbenjamin Great episode! I learned a half dozen different things in this one. Super stoked to try for mending now. Also glad that the Dude can abide upon his rug.

@danbenjamin queued for later tonight! i will probably never play the game, but this series you're doing has become my most anticipated subscription alert. a great mix of technical stuff, actual-play content, and lovely little editing asides!

This was my most fun Minecraft video yet (according to my son). Please watch and let me know what you think. Extra points if you find all of the Lebowski Easter eggs. youtu.be/NHrDNDbcJDo
@danbenjamin I’m almost positive the first ad we ever ran was on a show of yours. We were promoting an iOS plugin for developers on a dev-focused show. Sound familiar? Pre 5by5

The computational photography features look amazing.

Apple's new lineup looks great, solid all around.
