I once felt that iPads (and the subsequent pad computers) were not for me because, at the time, they couldn't handle streaming video, didn't have photoshop, and I wouldn't be able handle programing and arduinos. Well, video was quickly delt with, and Google Andrio plays well enough with Arduinos, and now Adobe has released touch apps to compliment its desktop bound Creative Suite. Between these developments and cloud computing I could almost adobt an iPad or android equivilent. Almost.

I'm always a bit annoyed when extremly religious individuals try to argue that to be a "good" person you need to live by the 10 commandments (and usually don't state which set of 10 commandments they go by) I usually won't argue with them, but it my mindset, "good" is defined by your personal beliefs and what your community will accept, not from lists given to you by arbitrarily assigned international organizations. You can take that as you will, but when you boil them down, it's essentially all the same. With that said, I like how Penn Jillette's 10 Commandments for Athiests has been getting some circulation...

it's a sad truth that people of my generation know how to "use the internet", yet constantly display an inability to understand and evaluate the information they collect as they pull in their nets. It's sad when people are unable or unwiling to do even a little fact checking - online or off.

My homebrew beer is mostly unlabeled, mostly because I don't want to disticker my bottles each batch, but I'd probably change my mind if I could print electronics circuits unto the bottles (at least, without spending thousands of dollars to do so). [via adafruit]
