I am putting together an electronics hardware lab and looking for suggestions on everything from equipment to furniture for the lab. My aim is for a professional grade setup, not just a hobby lab. The goal is to be able to test and debug modern electronic device prototypes. I would love to see money is no objective suggestions along side more economically practical solutions. Links or contacts for good distributors to acquire the equipment and furniture is also welcome. Also commentary on renting versus buying new or used higher end equipment to be economical and keep up with equipment that will become obsolete quickly.

Collections will offer retailers a Pinterest-like option to engage buyers, offer users a way to collect images, while also collecting even more data about users. For example, Facebook asks, "Why are you collecting this?" Regardless of a user's answer, the wants and collects will surely be used to deliver targeted ads. Eventually, the Collections feature could help Facebook generate more revenue.

Those are the words of Backblaze Founder and CEO Gleb Budman, whose company offers unlimited cloud backup for just $5 a month, and fills 50TB worth of new storage a day in its custom-built, open source pod architecture. So one might imagine the cloud storage startup was pretty upset when flooding in Thailand caused a global shortage on internal hard drives last year.
Backblaze details much the process in a Tuesday-morning blog post, including the hijinks that followed as the company got creative trying to figure out ways around the new hard drive limits. Maps were drawn, employees were cut off from purchasing hard drives at Costco — both in-person throughout Silicon Valley and online (despite some great efforts to avoid detection, such as paying for hard drives online using gift cards) — and friends and family across the country were conscripted into a hard-drive-buying army."
