I was quite jealous all weekend of my fellow gamers with their Last of Us #PSN game statuses... But my collectors edition just arrived from Amazon so I'm quite excited now instead.

Okay, I admit, the recent used game thing has been annoying me with the new consoles (and even on current systems with online passes) so this video from Sony made me laugh: Official PlayStation Used Game Instructional Video

Why Sony's Open SmartWatch program is fantastic news.
Sony this week announced an Open SmartWatch project that invites developers to create and flash their own firmware for the Sony SmartWatch.
This is mind-blowing news for three reasons:

I swear lawyers make people stupid. I saw a layout issue that should be fixed in the +Nest mobile app and E-mailed their support contact from within the Play Store and got this response:
"I apologize, but we're unable to accept product suggestions over email due to our legal policy."
It goes on to suggest that I post it to their website instead ... a layout change. Please stop making me scroll on a large tablet. That's all I suggested. Sigh.
That's the first rejection E-mail I've ever received from an app developer ... not all have been implemented, but all the rest have been smart enough to accept the feedback they're given and not ask their lawyers first.

You won't believe how this gorgeous hidden beach was formed. Located on the Marieta Islands in Puerto Vallarta, this is a former bomb site used by the Mexican Government in the early 1900's. To reach the hidden beach, known as Playa de Amor, you have to swim through a short tunnel which opens up into the spectacular beach, which is surrounded by rare wildlife.

My little girl just finished the second (and longest) book in the Sword of Truth series and as she debates reading the third before or after her stack of unfinished reading material, I tried convincing her that she should blog her reading experiences.
I figure there's a perspective here worth sharing and I'm not sure she sees it.

As a #Canadian with a share in our national inferiority complex**, I often point out "you realize they're Canadian, right?" to people when speaking of certain celebrities. As such, I found this article quite amusing: http://celebritytoob.com/pictures/25-actors-you-might-not-guess-are-canadian/

Oh man, this made me laugh so hard:
Many moons ago, I told my wife +Cindy Babcock that I'd gladly stay home (and probably work part time but that's beside the point) if she earned enough for us to live comfortably, and she's been competing with me ever since ...

Has anyone found a good stable car mount for the Nexus 7 yet other than the $50-120 ProClip models? I'd love to dash-mount my Nexus7 and pogo-pin charge but USB will work too.
I had my Dell Streak 5" phone mounted nicely in its Otterbox case for a while and it was really nice but I'd prefer to mount the larger Nexus7 now.

An interesting article on using Python as the language of choice in an algorithms course, rather than Java or C++:
As a Python fan, I was thrilled of course because I love to see people learning to code and I think Python is a natural fit to many peoples' programming needs.

I'd have to do more reading on the spec but this is both exciting for the technology and worries me deeply for security reasons.
I hope they do it right the first time, but I never have that much faith in systems.

Needed practice working with RADIUS as an authentication system for 802.1x and some new Wi-Fi work I'm doing so I configured my home access point as WPA-Enterprise instead of Personal and got playing.
Gotta say, it feels a bit special to have individualized logins and passwords for everyone in the house (not to mention guests being on a private VLAN).

An article on Slashdot points out that Google's Schmidt said to The Telegraph, "You have to fight for your privacy, or you will lose it." and that "this is quite different from his infamous 2009 remark: 'If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place.'" but I disagree. I think they're quite compatible -- those things you don't want people to know about you probably shouldn't do because the Internet isn't private right now. But that doesn't stop us from fighting for more privacy ...

Alright fellow audio type people and generic computer geeks, I have a desk full of devices with eighth inch headphone jacks for audio out and one pair of speakers on this desk. I want an inconspicuous but decent quality "mixer/switch" to connect four or five devices' inputs into and set individual volume levels from.
Having spent way too much time doing actual mixing, and owning a nice multi-channel multi-input Yamaha system for my livingroom I'm feeling left out in the small speaker desktop arena and feel like something must exist to fill this niche.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Actual products?

Central Indiana Resistance agent ViciousOrca ( +Kenny Fox ) designed and executed one of the most impressive pieces of field art I have ever seen.
This was done overnight. This is actual fields created in game.
Just to clarify, I did not make this amazing piece of art. I am just sharing it with all of you. All credit goes to Kenny. Say hi to him in comm.
Here is Kenny's write up on the plan and execution

I finally completed the fantastic and emotionally draining Heavy Rain last weekend. I almost feel the need to start over and get a different outcome, partly because I let one of my characters die part way through. What a great game ... can't wait for Beyond: Two Souls.
Maybe I should finish Two Worlds 2 now.
