Comment SodaStream - More like WaterStream (Score 1) 570

SodaStream in the US has discontinued the traditional soda flavor syrups in favor of what they call "Waters". Apparently after wasting millions on a superbowl commercial in a stupid attempt to compete with Coke and Pepsi they decided that what people really want is lightly flavored water. On second thought, maybe "UrineStream" would be a better name.

While GPS receivers are supposed to use 23:59:60 a receiver I was testing the last time there was a leap second did indeed generate 23:59:59 twice. Our software now accepts either. We're getting started on a new system this year, hopefully we'll get a selection of GPS receivers wired up to see what they do on June 30th.
