So there's this fancy new metal bike mount from +Vadolibero which I made a comment about on Facebook. Not only did they give me a wall-of-text ignorant reply, they blocked me so I can't respond to justify my criticism. That's the excellent customer service we should all expect from an #Indygogo   campaign I suppose.
I should note, I'm sure some people will like it, but I think its unnecessarily large, kinda ugly and doesn't have sufficient padding to prevent damage as the bike is put in or taken out, especially if lifted into position.

Here are some awesome bike mount ideas for small spaces to compare: http://hiconsumption.com/2013/09/14-best-space-saving-bike-rack-solutions-for-apartments/

This is what they're selling: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/bike-safe-the-smartest-wall-mount-ever--2/x/8758547#/

This entire situation is an excellent example of why modern computer-based systems need to be open in design. Just as patents on engine designs have allowed us to understand how everyone from Ford to Ferrari makes a piston motor, we need to have open specifications and source code so those in the know can see how the software that drives future vehicles work.

The article is about a month old but I'm sure a few of you haven't seen it yet either... "when it comes to detecting bombs and guns, the TSA’s success rate was found to be approximately 5 percent. A chimpanzee taking the LSAT does better than that."

First of all, this is pretty amazing. That said, if they're a piece of code that can defeat every pilot we have, you need to assume the enemy will implement it soon as well.

Dear Isagenix people: stop trying to sell me your snake oil. Thanks.

"The results were positive, but far from impressive. Over 8 weeks, subjects using Isalean lost 4 kg compared to 3 kg in the control group (1.1 and 0.8 pounds a week, respectively). The Isalean group reportedly reduced their total daily calorie intake from 1708 to 1255 [...] and the control group reduced their total calorie intake by less than 500 calories a day, so of course they lost less weight." -- https://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/isagenix-study-is-not-convincing/

Great article about how EREV driving is far more efficient than pure EV in some cases.

#Technology laws I want on the books:
1) If your product uses fuses, make them externally accessible without voiding warranties
2) If your product runs software with Internet connectivity and you stop supporting it, you must release those components to allow user groups to maintain it themselves (for obvious security reasons).
3) If your product runs software included on the device, its functionality must be covered by the hardware warranty

This is very exciting for #Netflix  users. If only more would sign on to existing services instead of making their own.

Ever feel like you're willing to stand in those long #TSA  lines because they actually make a difference? "a leaked report from the Department of Homeland Security showed that auditors were able to get fake weapons and explosives past security screeners 95 percent of the time in 70 covert tests."
