CMULL (3439971) writes "Long story short: Drunk woman was too drunk, and the bar was not pleased. The woman was asked to stop filming, she became loud and belligerent. She fell, lost her Glass. Someone picked it up and handed it back to her. Her male friend, whom was drunk as well, took swings at people in the bar when she fell and his attempt to defended her failed and he got decked himself. The lady was a "Glassahole," to put it simply. If she wasn't drunk, stumbling and filming people against their will, this would have ended with much less violence and kerfuffle."

CMULL (3439971) writes "Stop typing Git over and over again. Ruby on Rails development and consulting firm thoughtbot created an interactive shell dedicated to Git commands, gitish. The shell allows users to issue any Git commands instead of having to run Git commands in general-purpose shells like Zsh or Bash. One of the primary developers says there is a need for this shell because many early Unix utilities don't take sub-commands like Git." Link to Original Source top

CMULL (3439971) writes "As Microsoft’s search for a new CEO drags on, the big question is where the company should go in the next 20 years and who is best suited to take it there.
For all of Steve Ballmer’s business acumen, he’s never had the same grasp on the importance of design as someone like Steve Jobs. One Gartner analyst believes the key to Microsoft’s future is not the enterprise and cloud technologies Ballmer made into a core piece of Microsoft’s business, but a design-thinking model building innovative, consumer-driven user experiences."

If you are willing to forego the snob value of genuine Google Glass, and don’t need quite the high-end hardware, you can have an Ice Cream Sandwich head-mount display with 24-bit color, a 400x240 display, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage, a MicroSD slot, a speaker, a noise-cancelling microphone, a 5MP camera, 1080p video, a six-hour battery, WiFi and Bluetooth. Most recently, Vuzix announced that a software update will add voice recognition based on Nuance speech technology. Yes, you won’t get Google Glass’ 640x360 display, but did I mention the M100 is available now?" Link to Original Source top
