Bendy, but hangs loose too: Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 10-inch Android tab


I had a Asus Atom based Android tab for about a week before I returned it. Horrible tablet. I'm not going near another. ARM all the way.

What's the point of the Internet of Things?


Fishtanks are useless

The Internet of Things is pure hype. Not only is it a solution out looking for a problem, but it will never happen. My TV, stereo system and blu-ray player can't talk to each other. And now my TV refrigerator and coffee machine, all from different vendors, are supposed to be collaborating? A network is not enough. You also need protocols that are open, properly implemented and adhered to. Unfortunately protocols imply architectures, and requiring a certain architecture can be constraining. Companies tend to retreat into closed protocols, but this forces consumers to stick with one brand, and they almost never do so.
