I just had my first Uber experience while visiting Baltimore. I had the benefit of using regular taxis for comparison. The convenience with up front pricing and ETA are way better than the taxis. I had a long ride in a regular taxi where we discussed Uber. Of course he made all kinds of negative comments about them. I told him, create a taxi app like Uber and the problem will be solved.
Most important thing for me is running wires for Ethernet and cable. WiFi is obviously your secondary access point, but make sure every corner of the house has a wired connection.
You should also look at running dedicated power circuits to your home theater, office, etc. Anything with a concentration of expensive electronics should have their own circuit. When I built my office, I had two separate branches - one for electronics and one for lights and light duty outlets. All my important circuits use 12ga wire with 20amp outlets. Even if I am not drawing the current to justify them, I feel they provide cleaner power.
You simply need Proteus. Just be careful as it will attempt to breed with females of child-bearing age.
Sorry, but it is the other way around. The French from both France and Canada have a huge disdain for all things American. The stereotypical arrogant French a-hole is unfortunately well-founded. I've encountered it all over the world, including my home state of NH where French-Canadians like to grace us with their presence by standing and the way and not talking to us.

Good! Let the journalists talk about other companies instead of sucking the teat of Apple. How come the Apple Watch gets so much publicity when the Samsung watch has been out for years, and Pebble Time is a resounding success on Kickstarter?
These journalists can't look past their own stupid purchasing decisions. iPhones for all the unwashed masses. News at 11.
I need a drink.
This would be a good time to bust out the Romulan Ale
I am truly sad. Is it time to launch the Genesis device?
I have a good anecdote for this. I recently installed a home theater with in-wall 5.1 surround sound speakers. I sat my 12 year old son down and played through some classic rock - Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, etc. At the end of the session he said, "I'm never going to listen to my ipod again."
I would agree that finding good torrents has gotten harder. I have also decided that my time is worth something. I am willing to pay a few dollars to watch a movie on amazon instant video or my cable service. While the quality isn't as good as DVD/BD it is good enough and about equal to most torrents. The thing about torrents is lack of consistency. There are also the bad rips, honeypots, etc.

The original RAZR was the best PHONE ever. I really miss it. I now have the RAZR M which is a fully functional smart phone that fits nicely in my pocket without looking like I'm smuggling contraband.
SharePoint - where documents go to die.
Are you kidding? The only thing
Whoa! You just gave me flashbacks of X / Motif coding. Time to curl up into a ball and suck my thumb until the bad thoughts go away.
In the 1990's I worked in a group of 50 brilliant engineers including a gaggle of Phds. The Phds were always good at coming up with ideas and writing papers, but couldn't code themselves out of a cardboard box. The rest of us got things done, producing software actually used by customers. We called ourselves the "rowers". Some of the smartest / capable engineers had bachelor degrees in Psychology and other unrelated fields.
I don't resent CS Phd's but I am guarded as to whether they can do real work in a timely manner.
