'Kill switch' will come to U.S. phones in 2015 - CNN.com
"The "kill switch," a system for remotely disabling smartphones and wiping their data, will become standard in 2015, according to a pledge backed by most of the mobile world's major players. Apple, Google, Samsung and Microsoft, along with the five biggest cellular carriers in the United States, are among those that have signed on to a voluntary program announced Tuesday by the industry's largest trade group. All smartphones manufactured for sale in the United States after July 2015 must have the technology, according to the program from CTIA-The Wireless Association. Advocates say the feature would deter thieves from taking mobile devices by rendering phones useless while allowing people to protect personal information if their phone is lost or stolen. Its proponents include law enforcement officials concerned about the rising problem of smartphone theft." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Swine Flu Is Jumping Into More Species Than Ever
"Remember the H1N1 flu that spread across the planet in 2009? It was the same flu strain that was predominant during this winter's flu season. Now it's turned up in sea otters living off the coast of Washington state, and researchers don't know how it got there." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

I had a contractor friend give me a rough estimate of what it would cost today to take care of ALL of the major projects/renovations/replacements that I have on my list. I knew it would be totally unrealistic for my budget right now, but it was actually less than I expected. So i guess this is good news?
To replace the roof, soffits, fascia and gutters, ALL of the windows (except the bay window in the kitchen dining nook which was added after initial construction and actually DOES insulate somewhat) would run about $25K. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Adding an exterior stair off of the balcony deck to the back yard adds another $2600. And the last (and lowest priority) improvement would be to add maintenance free siding over the existing redwood, which is the stuff that gave me so much grief when I did last summer's painting project. That would bring the total to $36K. So, hey ol' FF buddies... ol' pals... I'll send you some naked pics for a $5K contribution! For $10K I'll send pics of someone else! For $20K I promise not to send any! ;-P - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Seriously, I was expecting the roof alone to cost $20K. I figured the windows would cost $10K or so, but that was for just the biggest ones. He's figuring in the french doors to the balcony, and all of the smaller windows in the lower level and the bathrooms. So that's a relief, in an odd way. Maybe if I can do it in stages over 10 years or so, it might be manageable. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I remember hearing a financial advisor on WPR telling a prospective home buyer that he should expect to spend about 10% of the purchase price annually for maintenance and needed improvements. My jaw dropped, but now that doesn't seem so extreme. I guess I/we were fortunate in our previous homes, because we never came close to that ratio. On the otherhand, I could do a lot more of the regular maintenance myself, as well as some "special" projects. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
And just to be clear, I'm kidding (KIDDING!) about donations... too many people with real and urgent needs out there. (I would sell the naked pics, however.) - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
We put a lot of money (for us) into the house when we bought it. We couldn't afford to get the yard, kitchen, or master bath done. It'll be a while. :-/ - Yvonne from FFHound!
The windows will give you immediate return on heat/air conditioning. - Janet from FFHound!
Definitely, especially in another winter like we just had! (And are still having...) That would be my highest priority except that the roof will soon reach a point where I'll either have to go with stop gap repairs year after year, or get the whole thing done right and not have to deal with it anymore. (And probably not the next one or two owners after me.) But still, shelling out $300... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Seems exceptionally reasonable what type of roofing will it be and is it a re-shingle or complete tear down to frame? We're in the same boat I do most work but am now paying for major landscaping work. - Steve C
Oh, and a wood stove in the lower level. Which will will really help keep the bedroom areas of the house warmer at night. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I know, it does seem reasonable, Steve. The roof is warranted for 30 years, and the shingles will be the "architectural style." He'll do a complete tear down and lay down the ice water barrier around the perimeter and the "valleys"... I was considering a metal roof, which carries a 50 year warranty, but I won't be around for most of that and I'm not sure the eventual buyer would view it... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Wow in that case that is a great deal! Roof alone down to tear down and replace is at least $15K - Steve C
The guy who is providing the estimate is trying to do a lot of projects this spring, summer and fall so that he can finish purchasing a piece of property up nort' and build himself a small cabin to serve as his abode in retirement. As such he's willing to offer better than normal pricing so he can get the amount of work he wants. He knows his stuff, but I do have to watch him a bit on... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Commenting on that "10% for maintenance..." Wow. If that was true around here, we'd move into a rental, since that would be considerably more than our total annual spending on *everything.* That is, house maintenance, food, utilities, clothing, entertainment...everything. - Walt Crawford
I'm glad I'm not the only one who balked at that number, Walt. In the three houses that I've previously owned, I'd say we spent 10% - 15% of the mortgage *payment* each month (on average). Many months it was much less, but then an occasional big item would need repair or replacement. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android

I am the one who rocks: Bryan Cranston helps teen land a prom date - TODAY.com - http://www.today.com/enterta...
"If terrifying chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-maker Walter White of "Breaking Bad" asks you to do something, you'd better give him the answer he wants. High-school student Stefan Montana of Los Gatos, Calif., nabbed actor Bryan Cranston, who played White, after seeing him in the Broadway show "All the Way" last Thursday, and enlisted him in a little project. "Maddie, if you don't go to the prom with Stefan, then maybe your best course of action would be to tread lightly," Cranston, in Walter White character, obligingly said into a camera. A nervous Montana followed up the celebrity cautionary remark by asking, "Maddie, will you go to prom with me?"" - Steve C from Bookmarklet
"The New York Daily News reported that Montana was in New York visiting colleges and got the idea for the question while watching Cranston's play. "(Cranston) really is the nicest guy in the world," Montana told the Daily News. "It really is true. He's not really a celebrity, he's a dude. He didn't have to help me out but it was pretty amazing."" - Steve C
He's awesome - Shevonne
Many years ago, Jeff Daniels was having dinner with friends at the Common Grill in Chelsea (Michigan; his home town). He noticed two girls who were treating themselves to a nice dinner before going date-less to the prom. He told them that, after he finished doing whatever he was doing with his friends, he would drop by the prom and be their date. And he did. And he was. - Betsy

"The manager of a hair salon in a London suburb was visited by unhappy North Korean officials after using a picture of autocratic leader Kim Jong Un's distinctive style to promote discounted cuts. “They took pictures and made notes outside,” Mo Nabbach, who runs the M&M hair Academy in South Ealing, told NBC News' U.K. news partner, ITV News." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

If 3D is failing on TVs, why in the world does anyone think it will succeed on phones?
Because it has been fairly successful on handheld gaming devices? Also, much lower entry point for cost. - Jennifer Dittrich
I'm still not sure why I even need 3D on a TV or phone. Isn't that what real life is for? - Hookuh Tinypants
What's this "real life" thing you speak of Hookuh? - Steve C
I'm...I'm not sure. I mean, it's something I read about once. Or maybe I saw something on History Channel? Anyway, it sounds amazing! - Hookuh Tinypants

Sometimes... on occasion... I may use more words than necessary to express a thought or idea. Just thought I'd give you all a heads up on that.
Are you sure about that? - Kirsten
You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means - Steve C
"Heads up"? "Necessary"? "Thought"? (I do get confused on the "thought" thing. Because I get confused when I "think." Or at least when I "think" I'm "thinking" or "thought" I was "thinking"...which, truthfully, I may not have been. So I guess I just convinced myself that you meant something else...by "thinking." ... I rest my case. (And my keister, because I'm exhausted from all of that "thinking." - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Also, Kirsten, I thought I was sure, but now I just don't know... life is like that you know. You think you're on the right track and then *boom* something comes along to set your brain on another track. Like the time back in the late 70's when I was watching the UW homecoming game. The game was close, the victory on the line, and then *boom* the cheerleaders ran past me to perform on... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Baseball brings new tech to the plate - Fortune Tech
"MLB Advanced Media, the tech outfit owned by baseball's 30 clubs, is rolling out a new tracking technology that yields insights about the entire field of play -- not just the pitch or the hit. Through a combination of cameras, radar, and proprietary software, the new system provides data on a base runner's jump and speed and the angle of his path while trying to, say, steal second base. It can also capture information on the catcher, fielders, and more." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

Opinion: What if the government guaranteed you an income? - CNN.com
"A monthly cash payment to every American, no questions asked, would solve several of our most daunting challenges. It's called a basic income, and it's cheaper and much more effective than our current malfunctioning safety net, which costs nearly $1 trillion per year. The idea of a basic income, sometimes called a guaranteed minimum income or a negative income tax, has been discussed for decades by notable economists like Milton Friedman. In the late 1960s and 1970s, the idea had bipartisan backing before losing steam. Recently, in the face of a sputtering economy, a weak job market and rising income inequality, it has been gathering supporters at an ever-quickening pace." - Steve C from Bookmarklet

'The power of music': Musicians bring concerts to bedridden man - TODAY.com
"The 35-year-old man from Farmington, Maine, has been confined to a bed for two years, due to a medical condition stemming from spinal cord problems and nerve damage. But, thanks to a regular rotation of musicians who perform concerts at his bedside, he’s still able to enjoy one of his favorite things — live music." - Steve C from Bookmarklet
"Two popular Maine musicians have also brought their music into Stanley's home, playing concerts at the house now known as “Stanley Station." The Rustic Overtones have packed a seven-piece band into Stanley’s living room for over a year, ever since lead singer Dave Gutter met Stanley at a concert. “His friends and family pulled this mobile hospital bed right up to the front of the... more... - Steve C
"Gutter says their bedside concerts are as much for Stanley as they are for the band, which gets re-energized by playing for their hardcore fan. “It’s our 20-year anniversary, and to put some wind in our sails and keep our heads up and keep us believing in the power of music is a beautiful thing,” he said." - Steve C

Guess I done been blocked by someone. I wonder which TMI did it this time. <sigh> Of course, the only way I happen to find out is when I do a search and their name doesn't show up, but I know they're still on FF. Such are the times I know it's getting closer to the sign-off stage. But I'll probably keep TMI'ing for a while longer, in spite of

Indeed, that's the salient point, Will. I guess I'm always surprised by a block because it's more than just an "unsubscribe" so I'm always curious as to what I might have done that was SO bad/annoying/perverted or whatever. Then again, this person may have blocked me years ago and I'm just now discovering. Which makes such contemplation futile, but also raises the possibility that there... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Police uncover daily rental racket - Taipei Times - http://www.taipeitimes.com/News...
"Taipei police, while inspecting homes that were registered as empty, recently found illegal hostel owners renting out rooms on a daily basis to be used by prostitutes in the city’s Xinyi District (信義). According to the Daan District (大安) police precinct, the owners of what was known as the “Mango Hostel” had been found renting out an apartment, walled up and separated into two rooms, on the 12th floor of an apartment building. Police said the hostel recruited most of its guests, predominantly Chinese or foreign backpackers, through the China-based online shopping Web site Taobao." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

" You got: Chinese. 祝贺您! More and more high schools are offering Mandarin these days, and as it’s the most-spoken language in the world, you’d be smart to start studying. In many ways, Mandarin Chinese is actually much easier to learn than European languages: there’s no subject/verb agreement, no plurals, no conjugations, and no tenses. Whether’s it’s business-related or just for personal enrichment, Chinese would be a worthy way to challenge yourself. You can do it!" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
