"Science says we're full of it. Listening to music hurts our ability to recall other stimuli, and any pop song -- loud or soft -"

Not very useful article if they assume I'm gonna be listening to pop music. If the writer didn't even care to talk about other types of music this is basically a very poor written post.


You're not backing your comments with anything. "Oh this is hipster because I say so", hehe, alright dude

Headline means HTML is in an acceptable state, a little misleading

This is relly cool. In a way I feel like you're changing part of my past for the better. Its weird.

Yes, they remind me of the people behind the dolphin emulator. They are working to make old games better than they've been on the original console. For example they added support

- to have 60fps in games that had only 30fps on the console,

- to load custom high definition textures,

- to play games at higher resolutions (1080p and beyond vs 720p) and

- to have stereoscopy in games.

And that without access to source code, mind you! Their work is amazing.

I love Emmet and have been using it for a while. Now if someone could tell me how to make it faster on VIM. Right now it takes like almost 2 seconds from trigger to expand.

Well, the use case for this laptop is for portability. Why would you need a million ports if you're gonna be traveling or at the coffee shop?. The only time I use an additional port is to charge my iphone, and I could easily do that with the wall charger. This is not a work laptop

-----


Maybe not a million, but TWO is far more reasonable than one.

Here is a brief list of wired accessories likely to be used at least 2 at a time: headphones, mouse, flash drive, mobile device.

Except for the processor speed, this could easily be my work laptop. I would prefer having only one thing to plug-in at my desk, as opposed to the power / USB hub / monitor setup that I currently have. Even with an Apple Thunderbolt monitor I would still have 2 things to plug in.

At all other points in the day I'm running on battery power, so I don't need any ports.

-----


Still, why not two USB-C ports, like some of the recent comparable Windows laptop designs?

-----


And, if the iPhones eventually get a type-C as well (and there's a high probability), you'll be able to feed up to 100W to it, according to the specifications.

Also by the specs, it could even work backwards, in theory.

It's very interesting to see the amount of negative articles about MongoDB, and at the same time see that its very popular on job boards. I'd honestly like to read an article about a success case

-----


The successes tend to be quiet. And folks who are happy don't take to the internet to defend their choices.

I've been on two straight projects where Mongo has been fine, no better or worse than an SQL database, but certainly nowhere as bad as one would assume reading all the negativity around here. I have experience with it being stable in two different contexts in production (social games, a very common use case, being one). A search for "social games mongo" should show you some success stories.

The thing that makes it a good choice for me when starting a new project is that you don't really think about it, especially if you're following lean startup methodology where the goal is to get a product into the hands of the users as quickly as possible & you anticipate changes to your models. Mongo is pretty fantastic for this. And when things stabilize, moving data really isn't that bad or expensive if you modeled based on this assumption (which you should). And now that PostgreSQL has a pretty good JSON datatype, it presents a pretty painless path if and when you outgrow Mongo.

That's a great concept, love your blog by the way

-----


If you didn't mind you wouldn't have posted all the other copies ;) It's alright to mind, and it's alright to complain sometimes

-----


This was probably for the best. I'd suggest you take some time to really think of what you want to be doing. If you're gonna work for another company now is the time to choose it wisely. Or if you're gonna go the freelancer way, it's also a good time to promote yourself as one. I wouldn't tell you what to choose because that really depends on what type of person you are. Do you like being around people?, are you good working by yourself, etc.
