This is pretty cool. A company named Skybox launches a ring of satellites into orbit that continuously take images and video for you quickly. "You'll go from downlink to accurate, relevant imagery and video in as little as 20 minutes", "Up to 90 seconds in length at 30 frames per second" -- it also appears to includes object detection from the videos.
Check it out! Moleskine is coming out with 25 new types of art journals. The art direction in the video is also well done.
Someone went through a lot of trouble making this video, but didn't cover up all the mistakes. Is this some weird homage to Back To The Future? Either way, It makes me wish we had the tech to make this a reality. Check out a spattering of famous people suspended by wires.
If you think this is real, please leave a comment. Please.

These are my bear Necessities. I keep a 27" monitor at both of my locations. It's all pretty much basic stuff, the only thing that isn't common I'd say to lug around is the table. I don't actually use it at home, it's only for my second location or when I'm at an external location. It's a little better to use than a coffee table.
I once had a whole bag of tech I carried that catered to doing support. Harddrives, different network cables, serial cables, live linux cd's, computer screw drivers, and other things that contribute to a bad back (when carrying in a book bag). This is about all I carry now, sometimes I carry my trackball, but since the switch to OSX two years ago I haven't used it much, I can do almost everything with my touchpad.
Funny or Die has a video called Comcast Doesn't Give a F*CK -- It's pretty funny and sad that all of the statements were true.
What alternatives do we have?
These items pay the rent and bootstrap my startup. In my car I keep a knife wrapped in parachute cord (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Von04QGoKdE) an ice scraper, flares and dc to ac inverter.
We have a new subendo called EDC -- EveryDayCarry. You can label and share what's in your bag with other Techendo-ers? (still working on that one).
Help us test it out and show your gear off. :)
This is pretty cool. Koding is launched a collaborative, cloud based IDE that visually lets people create domains, build sites, and even has a built-in console. It comes with a variety of pre-installed packages.
I'm curious if anyone is using this yet. I often times do a lot of development programming offline at cafes, so the cloud-only thing isn't really an option for me yet. Also, screen real estate and social distractions while coding might be another issue.
With all that said, this is the coolest thing for development that I've seen in a while.
