I’m half business and half tech. I appears that in the long-run, however, I should nurture my tech side if I wanted a greater ROI for my college degree. I understand it’s probably a “no duh” moment, but it’s a bit of an eye opener when it comes to my children.
So I have this weird obsession with weather. I think it stems from the fact that humans can take in all the data we slurp up into databases yet we still can’t figure out if it’s going to rain tomorrow reliably. Don’t get me wrong, I know we’re better now than before and getting even better, but it seems to me like eventually we should be able to model everything and figure out exactly what is going to happen. Everywhere.
Regardless, I came across this wind/water temp/wave/everything map with awesome layers to play with and turn on/off. I was fascinated.
How is it that WD Red 4TB drives are still so expensive? I simply don’t understand it?
I mean, I remember reading about floods back in 2011 that caused a shortage and drove up prices, but I bought a 4TB drive almost a year ago for cheaper than the current price.
The market is what it is, I guess.
For the record, we’re dropping the WD’s into a Synology DS216 for a customer. Synology prices have become very affordable as time has gone on…
I stick with Apple because I’m married and don’t get to make decisions like what phone I use. My wife insists that I have the same one as her so she knows how to use mine, etc. It’s probably not a good excuse but I pick my battles.
That said, holy crap the note 7 is nice.
I don’t remember what having full freedom of choice is like, so I look at things like this like I look at cars I know I’ll never have. There’s no realistic chance of ownership for me, so it’s all just admiration from afar.
edit: So apparently they have this extra feature where they, you know, explode. Not the greatest.
I mean, come on. They HAD to be making that word choice on purpose…right? I know the information is all rumors and… *snicker* … leaks… at this point.
As a side note, if they would make the next iPhone waterproof I would be soooooo happy.
Not all of them, of course, but enough that it should be concerning to anyone operating a smart home. Hopefully anyone venturing into smart home territory is already aware of the fact that this can weaken your security posture and should be made up for via other means (cameras, security system, armed guard with an AK, whatever).
So late Q3 and Q4 Apple product launches approach. Those include rumored iPhone, Apple Watch, and Macbook Pro refreshes. My wallet is screwed. Per multiple sources, we should see an iPhone 7, Retina Macbook Pro, and a new Apple Watch.
That does mean likely price drops on current models…
So… to buy at the price drop or buy the new? I’ll probably spring for the new.
