  • I really need to deploy that new editor with its auto-save feature.

  • HP announced their Spectre Folio, a leather-wrapped convertible laptop like the Spectre x2 only extra leathery.  (AnandTech)

    It's hamstrung by a 5W CPU (the x2 has a 15W part).  I'm guessing it's fanless and silent and has great battery life, but the x2 can actually do stuff.

    Microsoft is launching new Surface hardware in the next few hours, so this is HP trying to grab some news in front of that event.  Good luck with that; they make great hardware but their marketing department needs to be fired en masse:
    "Have you sniffed your PC recently?" Wolff asked. "Other than a whiff of ozone, they generally really don't have a smell, there is no memory associated with them. It's pretty cold. We wanted something that offered more than that, and that was our mission."

    Really, HP, you just needed to note that it has separate PgUp/PgDn/Home/End keys and I'd be sold.  (Thurrott.com)

    It does look good, I must admit.

  • Chrome 69 sucks.  I've had more problems with it than the last 50 release combined.  Guess they were too busy mangling URLs to wrangle bugs.

  • Houston we have a problem with our robot brothel.  (ZDNet)
