Why I Do This For You

Intent Is Everything - "You can chalk it all up to passion or care, but (for me) it's mostly about surrounding myself in content with the hopes that some of it trickles down into something more valuable ... people marvel at my ability to create so much content, so frequently, it forces me to remind myself that although I'm not reading, listening or watching everything, it's my intent to do so that makes all of this somewhat easier for me (and perhaps creates the perception that I am engaged with a lot more content than I truly am)."

Most Game Console Power Draw Comes From Time Spent Idling - Slashdot

Most Game Console Power Draw Comes From Time Spent Idling - Slashdot | Good Advice | Scoop.it

"The biggest culprit for the trio of main consoles of this generation was the PlayStation 3, with its first edition having an active power draw of 180 watts and an idling draw of 167. As the report states, the Xbox 360 wasn't much better however, with active/idle draws of 172/162w respectively. Both of those consoles have got far better with their hardware revisions, more than halving the idle power consumption, but the Wii has been ahead of the curve the whole time. Its active/idle power draws were as low as 16/11w. The only real difference with the Nintendo console was whether its WC24 was enabled or not. With it on, standby power jumped from 2w to 9w."

The Nerdy Teacher: No Tablets, No Problem Thanks to @Evernote | Good Advice | Scoop.it
Well, they did not melt down. The kids quickly took out there personal devices, opened up Evernote, and got to work. Some students did not have access to a personal device and needed to take notes by hand. I apologized to one student who was taking notes by hand for the first time in months. They said it was not that big of a deal. They intend to just take pictures of the notes and upload them to Evernote at a later date. Awesome!

Darth Vader and Son Imagines the Sith Lord as a Doting Dad | Good Advice | Scoop.it

"Cartoonist Jeffrey Brown has envisioned a hilarious world in which Darth Vader has custody of little Luke. He's still Darth Vader, mind you, but he's also a dad, with all that it entails: Vader trying to have a conversation with the Emperor while Luke pokes at him, trying to get his attention; "When I was your age, we didn't even have Star Destroyers"; the awkward response when Luke asks why it's called a "Death Star."
