Thoughts on Apple's new maps

Interesting writeup on the latest in the ongoing skirmish between Apple and Google.  Apple has discontinued using Google Maps in their iPhone and iPad devices, in favor of their newly acquired Poly9 Maps competitor.  This Gizmodo post has an interesting analysis of the two services side by side.  Based on this, and my own experience using both iPhones and Android devices, I have to say I'm firmly in the Android camp, especially with Google's impending purchase of Motorola Mobility.  And while I am still personally distrustful of Google's ongoing beneficence and their 'fingers in every pie' business model, today, for me, the benefits still far outweigh the risk.

Thoughts on the LinkedIn data breach

6.5 million email addresses and passwords.  That's the number that was referenced in LinkedIn's blog post announcing the breach.  Let that number run around in your head for just a moment.  To put it into perspective, 6.5 million is roughly 10 times the population of Vermont in it's entirety.

An Arcade game? Really?!

So, you may be asking yourself what's all this about this arcade cabinet that we've been working on? We're going to be at the #VTExpo Vermont Chamber of Commerce Business Expo at the Sheraton Burlington next Wednesday and Thursday, May 22-23rd, and we thought that bringing an arcade game would be nerdy and cool. But we didn't just go get an arcade game and bring it to the show, oh no...

Instead, we got an old Crystal Castles arcade game, and proceeded to completely gut it, replace all it's internals with current locally built components (thanks, Logic Supply!), built a new control panel and rebuild all the controllers, painted it, stickered, and loaded it up with Linux. Just because we can.

So, we'll be at the expo with this kick-ass toy.  But, in keeping with our mission to do good work, and do our part to make the world a better place, we'll be there with a purpose. We'll be there collecting funds for our friends at the #VTNetwork Vermont Network Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. Every quarter put in the machine will be donated, and matched by rbTech, to support the great work they do there.

So come up to #BTV and check us out, play a couple games of Tuxracer, and hang with the coolest bunch of nerds anywhere!

Today's bit of nerdy goodness... you have to love MIT!  They've built a controller that runs the lights in the building, and in real time can be used to play a game of Tetris.  Way cool, and way to go MIT!  Check out the official page here...
