Cheetahs Prosper: New Study Debunks More Old Myths – Phenomena: Not Exactly Rocket Science -
Cheetahs Prosper: New Study Debunks More Old Myths – Phenomena: Not Exactly Rocket Science
"The cheetah’s life is reputedly balanced on an energetic cliff. Yes, it’s the fastest land animal, capable of going from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a few seconds. But, according to countless nature documentaries, its high-speed chases leave it exhausted and overheated. If it fails to catch a meal, it’s in bad shape to try again. And even if it’s successful, it is easily and frequently driven away from its own kills by more powerful predators like lions or hyenas. The price of super-speed is a teetering existence, spent scrabbling for food and energy. Except, very little of that is true." - Eivind from Bookmarklet

Besides the green beauty that is the Borland (Enterprise Technology Center) grounds, I love that my freeway exit is now "Santa's Village". I love the trees we can see out all of the windows. However, my cube is still just a cube, and I face the computer with my back to the corridor, so I don't get to see the trees.
Santa's Village has to be the topic of my next #saturdayff - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I vaguely remember the actual Santa's Village. There were rides and you used to be able to see them from the highway. - Rodfather from Android
Ah I was 5 when it closed. I do remember going there. - Rodfather from Android
Yeah, it closed the year I came to Santa Cruz. But you could still see most of the stuff that stayed there for awhile. - Laura Norvig
I'm in a Santa's Village group on Facebook. Also one for Frontier Village. Memories! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Today I walked around the whole entire walkway of all the modules that runs around the third story of the whole complex (which is HUGE). It runs everywhere EXCEPT around what was Phillipe's office. He didn't want people peering in his windows, I suppose. This meant I had to knock on a window to get someone's attention because I couldn't get back to the proper door where my key card would work. - Laura Norvig
It's green because they use recycled water on the grounds, but it still feels SO sinful in these drought times. - Laura Norvig
I wasn't living in this area back then, but I had so many Borland products and imagined they were all made in a magical place. I was greatly surprised the first time I drove on highway 17 and went "HEY!", recognizing what that place was. - Amit Patel
I remember when, if someone said they worked in Scott's Valley, it was either at Seagate or McDonalds, lol - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Gracepoint WTF!
Show all
I'm flipping Channels & come across this premiere of Gracepoint, But I'm confused, I see David Tennant look just like he did in the UK show Broadchurch, only with a bad American accent. Why in gods name is FOX getting the same actor to do the same British story only set in California instead of the southern British coast. If your doing the same script anyway why not just show the original show! American version on Top, UK Version on the Bottom.  - Bluesun 2600
I just found out that they also are using the same damn Director and Writer. Again why not just show the original? You just got the right to it from the BBC and ITV for the show. Why redo it with the same people? - Bluesun 2600

Apple is such an amazing company in so many ways. How come iTunes is so awful, and has been for so long? As they have migrated its functions off to the cloud, iTunes really has exactly one job for me now, to put music on my phone. At that, it completely fails. Here we see my music, stuck in "Other" and unable to be played. Jolly good show, iTunes.
Here we begin unsyncing all of my music, trying to reclaim the Other, and then resyncing. I've put six or seven hours into that so far, with no luck. - Stephen Mack
Oh good. I thought that was just happening to me. On one hand, I'm glad I never relied solely on iTunes to store my music, but now, out of thousands of songs only like 600 of them are playable on my iPods. - Anika
iTunes is a huge POS - Jeff (Team マクダジ )
I always assumed misuse of "other" was iOS's fault... - Andrew C (✔) from Android
How can you tell what is in the "other" section? I've noticed my other section has been growing as well. - Friar Will
I was just having this moment while I was trying to clear stuff out on my phone. At this point, they should have a far more robust management utility that is /separate/ from iTunes. There's no reason for the two to be married together once the cloud sync stuff came into play. (FWIW, on my phone most of the "other" was comprised of data bloat for a couple of applications, Flickr and Tumblr being the worst offenders.) - Jennifer Dittrich
Oof. There goes my plans for buying an iPhone if my Nexus 4 ever dies. I love my iPod nano, but I've never been able to easily sync my digital music with my phone, and I'd like to do that someday. Looks like Apple isn't helping that happen anymore. - Holly's favorite Anna
Andrew, you may be right that it's iOS's fault. Hard to separate out where the fault is, really. - Stephen Mack
There are third party music sync apps. Any of you use them? - Stephen Mack
Will, per the Apple support communities ( "Other" data is real data including your system files and cached content that you put on your device by using the built-in apps. It's just that as you use the phone, it will grow. This includes: Messages and attachments Contacts Reminders Safari bookmarks and cache Email messages and attachments Calendar entries Genius data Music catalog and cover art Operating system settings Game Center status - Stephen Mack
I haven't experienced issues like you have Stephen, but I have had a difficult time setting the sync just right. No matter how many times I uncheck sync movies, it took iTunes ages to realize I don't want movies on my iOS devices downloaded to my laptop. iTunes has usually been pretty good with my music, though. However, if it weren't for the fact that 90% of my music were ripped from CDs, I wouldn't sync with iTunes at all, since syncing iPhone with a computer is so '00s to me. >_> - Arlan K.
After iTunes Match, I don't think I've intentionally synced my device with iTunes since. $25 a month is so worth it. EDIT: crap, yes. $25 a YEAR. See, this is why I didn't do poker last night, my head was wonked up. - Jonathan Disher
You mean $25 a year, Jon. :) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Other is the data the apps build up. Under Settings > General > Usage you can see each app by total size and inside of each you can see how much is taken up by locally stored data. I delete and re-install Facebook, Twitter and Vine about once every 2 months to clear the cache. - Johnny from iPhone
$25 a YEAR? Hmmmm.... - Arlan K.
Johnny, that's a good tip. In my case, though, it's music that doesn't sync correctly and can't be reclaimed. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
itunes makes me crazypants. I had some songs that I could not get removed from my phone no matter what i did. what i discovered was that the itunes setting was set to show all store purchases and itunes match uploads, even if they had never been downloaded to the phone. so all those random freebies that i got from itunes over the years were always showing up on my phone. SO DUMB. ITUNES IS CRAZYPANTS. - holly #ravingfangirl
I recently found dozens of old CDs I had in the garage. I've sucked them into iTunes, and they they automatically get synced to Google Music. iTunes is just the CD ripper. Once they're on Google Music (or Spotify), you're covered. - Louis Gray
Sorry Louis. Google Music streaming doesn't work too well for me. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yes, $25/year. Bad brain. - Jonathan Disher
Got much worse this evening -- almost all of the phone was locked out with "Other." There are 11 pages of people experiencing the same syncing issue that I had that led to this mess ( Now restoring the phone to factory settings and starting over. What a mess. - Stephen Mack
Factory reset and restore from backup and seven hours of syncing overnight seem to have fixed things. And the battery life seems a bit better too! - Stephen Mack
At least you can sync. That's more than what I get with 11.4; it crashes when syncing apps. Every time. It's enough to give up and never sync again. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
So is a factory reset the equivalent of turning it off and on again? - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Wow. What a hassle. I'm sorry it's sucking so badly. - Spidra Webster
Stephan: I'd say turning it off and on again is equivalent to turning it off and on again. Factory reset is more like when you take every single item out of your house and put it on the lawn so you can clean the house out of dust and bugs. - Stephen Mack
Spidra, thanks. Sounds like Stephan has it worse than me! - Stephen Mack

It is actually more expensive to be poor than not poor.

Philips’ 200 lumens-per-watt prototype LED lamp is the world’s most efficient | ExtremeTech
"Progress in the LED lighting industry can best be measured in two separate metrics: pricing and efficiency. Pricing gets most of the attention, but so many factors affect it — from the cost of materials to various subsidies — that it is primarily interesting as an overall trend. Efficiency, which is measured in terms of lumens-per-watt, is a better way to look at progress." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
"In keeping with these advances, today Philips announced that they have created the world’s most efficient warm white LED lamp. The prototype operates at 200 lumens-per-watt, a number that is more than double what is found in typical household LED products. The “warm white” part might seem like a minor detail, but it’s actually rather important. The majority of people prefer their... more... - Amit Patel

Long before Beatrix Potter unleashed the twinkly-eyed hedgehog washerwoman Mrs. Tiggy-Winkles upon the world, children have been enamored by the spiny mammals. In fact, a carved toy hedgehog — presumably a prized possession — was found buried next to a child’s grave unearthed near Stonehenge dating back some 3,000 years. But the love for hedgehogs doesn’t stop when childhood does; one look at YouTube’s nearly 2.5 million videos featuring the prickly creatures points to the fact that we are a people obsessed with hedgehogs. Forget the Digital Age; future historians may just as well refer to this as the Hedgehog Age. But love them as we do, what do we really know about hedgehogs? Consider this your crash course on the quilled cuties. - Mahdi

It's no secret that reading is good for you. Just six minutes of reading is enough to reduce stress by 68%, and numerous studies have shown that reading keeps your brain functioning effectively as you age. One study even found that elderly individuals who read regularly are 2.5 times less likely to develop Alzheimer's than their peers. But not all forms of reading are created equal. - Mahdi
I love to read actual books, I could not have good good feeling with laptop, kindle, eBook reader or any sort of electric devices for reading purpose. - Mahdi
