Inside Story of Clinkle - Business Insider - http://www.businessinsider.com/inside-...
The week after Thanksgiving, 40 Clinkle employees gathered in the kitchen of their San Francisco office. It was the second time in two days they’d been called together for an all-hands meeting. At the front of the room stood 22-year-old Clinkle CEO Lucas Duplan, eyes cast down. via Pocket - Nils Sandin

Tails: the operating system that blew open the NSA (Wired UK) - http://www.wired.co.uk/news...
When NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden first emailed Glenn Greenwald, he insisted on using email encryption software called PGP for all communications. But this month, we learned that Snowden used another technology to keep his communications out of the NSA's prying eyes. It's called Tails. via Pocke - Nils Sandin

If Comcast gets TWC, three out of four Americans could get a broadband cap — Tech News and Analysis - http://gigaom.com/2014...
As regulators attempt to sift through the possible public harms and benefits of Comcast’s $45.2 billion plan to buy Time Warner Cable, we thought it was worth showing that if the deal takes place it could lead to a significant jump in the number of broadband subscribers getting a data cap. via Pocket - Nils Sandin

Am I the only one not watching Game of Thrones?
Yes - Todd Hoff
Todd is wrong. i don't watch it either. - Big Joe Silence
It's like a contact high. - Todd Hoff
I've DVR'ed all the episodes, but still haven't watched them. - Nils Sandin
I don't either. I think the last TV series I've watched was Scrubs and Better Off Ted and both those ended in 2010. - ronin
Nope. - Sean McBride
I'm watching it as the DVD sets come out. So, yes and no. - Betsy
Never watched it. - Tamara J. B.
I am watching Bates Motel -- because Vera Farmiga is a pip. - Sean McBride
We haven't watched either. I bought the first book in the series last year, but didn't get very far with it. - Greg GuitarBuster

It. Is. So. Good. - Brian Fitzpatrick
I do not watch this series. - Janet from FFHound!
I haven't watched it yet. OTOH, I finally got around to watching a few seasons of The Wire. If watching Game of Thrones still seems like a good idea in 10 years, I guess I'll watch it. - Larry Hosken
Nope. - Louis Gray
Nope. Only saw the first episode or two that were shown on broadcast tv. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' review | The Verge - http://www.theverge.com/2014...
"There’s a moment in Captain America: The Winter Soldier when Robert Redford, playing a higher-up at the intelligence agency SHIELD, says that in order to improve things you often need to tear down what’s come before — no matter what the cost. It ties in to the movie’s larger themes about freedom, security, and how people are often willing to sacrifice one for the other, but it also brings to mind Marvel itself." - Nils Sandin

San Jose's Century dome theaters closing as lease of 11-acre site nears [Silicon Valley Business Journal]
End of an era. I saw Hunger Games 2 with Yvonne there not long ago -- hardly anyone was there in the audience. Sad. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
Damn, these are my favorites. - Todd Hoff
#saturdayff Right after moving from England, the first movie I saw in America was Empire Strikes Back at Century 22 when it came out. A bunch of us skipped school on the Friday that Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom came out. And so many more movies. Anyone remember when the lines used to go around the block? (Fewer movie theaters back then, I guess.) - Stephen Mack
So in high school I had this one friend, Pete C. A strange guy, and later in life he had some big issues. But in high school he was a firecracker. We were waiting to see Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. The movie was starting late. The place was packed. People were getting restless. Pete (who almost always wore shorts, a button-down, and a tie) went up to the front. - Stephen Mack
"Excuse me, can I have your attention?" he yells out. The place quiets down, expecting an official announcement about why the movie was delayed.. "Thanks! I just love attention!" Then he went back to his seat. - Stephen Mack
Todd, yeah, I loved 'em too. But these days I see more movies in Mt. View at the Century there, or at the AMC Mercado -- just because they're closer. - Stephen Mack
So will it be housing like santa row? An expansion of the haunted house? The haunted house needs an updating. - Todd Hoff
Good question, Todd. Not sure -- probably retail. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I saw Schindler's List there. - Nils Sandin
Anyone have a quiet theatre to go to? I like the large theaters because they can hide people talking. Most other theaters are quite, well, space efficient. - Todd Hoff
Aww man, I loved those theaters. I much prefer those for parking and low crowds than AMC or the ones at Santana Row. - Tamara J. B.
Yeah, Tam, Mercado is always so packed. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
This is a bummer, but not that big a surprise. - Yvonne from FFHound!

We've Gone Solar. The Data Already Shows Green Benefits. - http://blog.louisgray.com/2014...
We've Gone Solar. The Data Already Shows Green Benefits.
We've Gone Solar. The Data Already Shows Green Benefits.
"Long on our whimsical 'to do' list has been to consider going solar. We've always known it was good for the environment, to create our own energy and give it back to the power grid, but after months and months of getting notes from PG&E saying we were using well more than our unfair share of electricity, thanks to keeping three young kids warm and in clean clothes and dishes on a daily basis, I made an investment in solar - calling up Sunrun, and getting panels on our roof that will be making energy for at least the next twenty years." - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
35 kWh/day? Where's all that electricity going? My own consumption last year was only 2.8 kWh/day (or 1000 kWh for the year). Granted, that's only a one-person household, but here in Germany a typical family household is estimated at 2000-3000 kWh. When I lived in the Bay Area for a while many years ago, I rarely had to turn on the air-conditioning. Why isn't solar more widespread in... more... - Nils Sandin
Still, the biggest drawback to solar panels on a house is in the event of fire. The high-voltage system is still energized, so any water used by the firemen could electrocute them, so there have been cases of the fire department letting it burn. :-( That could be a major hurdle in the US, where so many houses are made of wood instead of brick. - Nils Sandin
Nils, much of our use is from our washer and dryer, our fridge and freezer, and HVAC. That doesn't even touch TVs or other electronics. - Louis Gray
Nils: In fact, California is adding solar capacity rapidly--but those German figures are much lower than typical California figures, which are in turn much lower than typical U.S. figures. (Our two-person household, a much smaller house than Louis's, uses 11kWh/day averaged over a year. 95-98% of that comes from a small rooftop installation.) I don't believe most U.S. solar installations are "high-voltage," for that matter. - Walt Crawford
I want my solar panels in the desert instead of on my house. They'll be higher efficiency and be better maintained. :-/ - Amit Patel
oh no, I want mine on the house. I want solar to eliminate the need (or radically reduce it!) for distribution lines and electric companies! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
The previous owner of our house had these installed and they do help a lot, but mostly during the late spring/summer months. Generation takes a nose-dive during the winter (especially this past winter) due to more bad weather. I think at best during the past few months our electric bill was halved. But I would think you guys in Cali get more benefit year round than we do here in the... more... - ronin
I don't believe SREC's are available here. But yes, we surely do a lot better than halving our electricity bill. For us: first year, we were positive. Second year, the $4.50/month meter fee paid for whatever we used. Third year, we paid $30 more. For the year. My brother (same town, a few miles away) consistently runs positive--but he has a bigger installation and uses time-of-day metering, which we don't. - Walt Crawford
