#5302: Only $370!

Intel is making an "embedded solution" which is essentially a fairly powerful computer the size of a pack of gum. The developer's kit is $370.

The specs are sufficiently powerful for running most business apps, but it only has about 16 GB of nonvolatile storage. If you could find a way to give it more storage, running Windows and Office wouldn't be out of the question. And it's tiny.

It'd be fun to build a desktop computer around it, but who has $400 for something like that?

It's all utter BS. Can't agree more.

Short form: the guy who got up and insulted Trump, and then everyone wet their pants when Trump insulted him back because the guy lost a son to the various wars in the middle east--the guy who then gave a speech at the Democrat convention--his speech was written by Hillary campaign staffers. And get this:
Khan’s immigration law firm is in debt $1.7M and owes back taxes of upward $850,000 plus penalties.

CNN paid Khan over $100,000 to tell his “story” and repeated interviews across networks. Khan was given a bonus of $175k by the DNC for his effort in the media. The IRS has since put Khan’s tax file on a “hold” status.
Yep. You do a favor for la Dona Hillary and she does a favor for you.

This raises a good point. Someone who's high on pot is very likely to eat all your Twinkies, and not at all likely to try to literally chew your face off.

Another call for massive nuclear-powered desalinization plants. Whee!

Having virtually eliminated pollution from cars, the EPA turned its attention to all other gasoline engines. How long will it be before we have to have catalytic convertors on our lawn mowers?

So, I can't think of a way to end this post. Tried about a half-dozen things, nothing clicked. Then again, I'm tired.

Well, it could be worse.
