Microsoft Is Really Turning It Around

Microsoft Is Really Turning It Around | Nerd Vittles Daily Dump | Scoop.it
It's tempting to think of Microsoft as some aging dinosaur. But it's wrong. Change has been building for almost a year now. Yes Windows 8 was a mess, and the Xbox One's early days were embarrassing, but Microsoft's been sharpening its game with impressive speed.

Review: The Ferocious New Corvette Z06 Is an $80K Ferrari-Killer | WIRED

Review: The Ferocious New Corvette Z06 Is an $80K Ferrari-Killer | WIRED | Nerd Vittles Daily Dump | Scoop.it
The Z06 story started in 1963 as an options package that was first offered on that unmistakably cool, split-window coupe. The 327 cubic-inch monster in that sled was so thirsty, a massive 36.5 gallon gas tank was available, if only to enable more laps at the racetrack between refuels. Since then, a steady stream of special edition Corvettes has spilled out of Chevy’s Bowling Green, Kentucky factory. This latest, greatest range topper earns its hyperbolic keep.

Who killed the electric car? Not Apple, as it's working on a 'Titan' one

Who killed the electric car? Not Apple, as it's working on a 'Titan' one | Nerd Vittles Daily Dump | Scoop.it
Apple is allegedly planning to revolutionize the car industry just as it did with music, phones, tablets, high-end designer computers, and, possibly, with watches and TVs. Remember that van we showed you the other day, with the laser mapping contraption on top that turned out to be rented by Apple? Well, it might turn out to be a much more taking-on-Tesla project than improving-Apple-Maps-with-Street-View-style-shots as initially thought...

There's a single thought that I have about the Sony SmartBand Talk that's been on my wrist for a few weeks now, and it is this. It is (very nearly) the perfect smartwatch for me. It doesn't meet every need and the flaws are obvious, but those same flaws are small enough that I can live with them.
