  • Physicists have discovered a new subatomic particle - the magnetic equivalent of the Higgs boson.  (Live Science)

    They were looking everywhere for it and it was right there on the kitchen counter all along.


  • Samsung's fridges are now also TVs.  (The Verge)

    I'm looking at a new fridge.  The one I have in mind doesn't even have an ice maker, let alone a built-in LCD display.  I just want a fridge.

    All the existing appliances in the new house seem to be appropriately dumb.  I mean, you can set the hot water temperature separately for the kitchen and each bathroom, but there's no app for it, you just use the wired controls.


  • Speaking of New House, heading back up there for the weekend.  Amazon delivered some stuff early and it's apparently sitting on the porch.

1 Yay dumb appliances! The guy at the local appliance store I bought all my new stuff at was delighted that I didn't want any "smart" wifi-enabled ones, because they include comprehensive service plans, and hate dealing with the hardware and software issues with that crap after a few years.

2 I just want a big fridge, since my gluten-free food constantly goes out of stock these days.  Don't about ice or chilled water, and actively reject anything fancier than that.

Might also end up getting a freezer down in the garage, but the big fridge comes first.

3 Maybe pick up an older, used commercial unit?  Like one of the drinks fridges.

4 Turns out LG makes exactly what I want, price is reasonable, and the nearest electronics retailer in New House City has it in stock.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
