  1. I Think you need to re-upload this one. Sound is out of sync and there’s all kinds of skipping and stuttering issues.

  2. Norm..make sure you see the mass accession in Albuquerque during the International Balloon Festival someday.

  3. The first time I installed Linux, it was took 93 3.5″ floppies! It was SLS Linux, which later became Slackware Linux.

  4. I was fortunate to be on a Mythbusters episode (airing around January) and they covered up the Apple logo with hazard tape cut to size as a part of their regular process of removing brands from the shot. Obviously, it stays.

  5. Hey Will, what is the name of that game you were talking about at the end of the episode? Victorian robots and heists sounds pretty cool!

  6. I really hope Echo comes out with these peripherals for multiple rooms with mics and speakers in them. This would make the echo so much better. I think the Echo isn’t to pricey but at the same time speeding $200 PER room is too much. I would be fine with a $50 price tag on something like this. Here’s hoping they also keep coming out with more compatibility with home automation devices. I really don’t want to buy multiple hubs for all these things coming out.

  7. The biggest problem with Samsung saying “read the manual” is that the manual that says don’t insert the pen backwards doesn’t come with the phone!

  8. What they don’t tell you…. every year Amazon tracks metrics on it’s customers, and “Culls” those who are least valuable to the organization. Through a little known loophole in the Echo contract, if you don’t make the cut, they will come to your house and replace you with a new family, one that is more productive and successfull.

  9. It’s nuts both how much I love the Echo, and how much I wish Google would just copy it (Is the OnHub a trojan horse Echo clone?!) as I’m all up in Google’s music and data infrastructure already.

    The one caveat is the day after I bought it, my kids (9 and 6) learned how to add things to the shopping list.

    Chianti was the Echo’s interpretation of my daughter asking for TNT.

  10. There are tons of other non lethal crowd control they could use on the quads that dont require short distance or aiming. i.e. – tear gas. Makes me apprehensive but it’s also inevitable

  11. A bit late here but this weeks podcast reminded me:

    I second on the Ubiquiti AP’s – I have 2 at home and our office has 5 of them, they work great and are really cost effective! Ordered one of the Unifi Security Gateways this week to test out as well.
