MC2 Post 2022 Why May 2015 was Such a Weird Ally







I was still having mega-problems with the Android Lollipop 5 upgrade, for my Asus Nexus 7  2012 tablet.  And if you caught Any of my posts on Twitter and Google+ I really Vented...

Aside from that, I got back to reading Real Books, and somehow got hooked into reading 2/3 of  William Gibson's Bridge Trilogy.  "Virtual Light" and  "All Tomorrows Parties".   I haven't started the book in the middle "Idoru".  My tablet has returned to better usability.

I've read these Gibson books before, but with all the talk these days about VR, everyone is jumping on the bandwagon,  I remebered Gibson had some interesting things to say about it and how things could go horribly wrong.

To Me, he's also way more poetic with his words and ideas than Neal Stephenson's "Snow Crash" which everyone points to as being the reason why Zuckerberg bought Oculus Rift for 2 billion.

I'm also reading  Walter Isaacson's The Innovators, and  "You Are Not a Gadget", a manifestio by  Jaron Lanier.

A tour through Taipei's Syntrend tech mall


From:   http://www.engadget.com


Taipei isn't really lacking in gadget shopping options, but, even so, the recently launched Syntrend Creative Park is noteworthy. A joint project between electronics supplier Hon Hai and Taipei's government, Syntrend is a massive 12-story tech-focused mall covering more than two acres. And it's got plenty of notable tenants, including storefronts from Intel, Samsung, Sony, Asus and Lenovo. For the most part, it's a place for you to relax and check out new gear. Imagine an Apple Store-like experience for dozens of tech brands across a high-end mall, and you'll get the idea. Now that we've pretty much seen all there is at Computex, we took a stroll through Syntrend to see if it really deserves to be likened to Tokyo's Akihabara district.
