Is fruit punch without sugar a fruit dive?

This is just before I swap the bulb and reshift the picture (do this yearly). Everything in my setup was installed by myself. You guys have actually seen the ceiling part before when you showcased my ceiling-mounted Echo Dot on Gizmodo and Lifehacker years ago (I included in this pic which is next to one of my ceiling

I have not watched the Super Bowl since 1983, so I guess my setup would be something like this:

What I find most comforting is seeing that each of the chef’s kitchens are just like mine: tiny, no counter space and mismatched utensils and cookware. This is how real people live, how real people cook. Let’s see those TV chefs cook like this, just once.

Seems like you could do something like that with magnets today. It would be similar to the failed Phonebloks/Project Ara/Fairphone modular phone design. You wouldn’t have the perfect screen, aka there would be seams, but it would be a great demonstrator (IMO).

I’m so glad you did this review. We have an ancient (5+ years old?) Apple TV and can’t get myself to pay for a new one. Got a firestick and can’t stand the UI and it’s SO slow. Might try to pick one of these up.

Also, this feels like one of those “wait until a few generations for them to work the bugs out” kind of product.  I hope it does well enough Microsoft Read more

“...I can’t help but find the amount of vitriol, incredulity, and straight-up hate that gets lobbed the Surface Duo’s way incredibly perplexing.” — My disdain (not hate) stems from having been told by Microsoft eight years ago that they had no plans to bring this dual screen interface to market.

I’d like to get my hands on one to play with for a few weeks, but I’m still not sure I totally understand the appeal at that cost. I was absolutely thrilled to get my first Windows Mobile phone years ago (some HTC slider model), and eventually left completely disappointed. I started my smartphone life with a Palm Treo Read more

This is largely what I’m looking for in a dual display phone. I want to run two apps simultaneously, not get a big, bendy screen. Or turn it sideways and get a keyboard with a screen above it. I think they’ve still got a ways to go before I plop down the money, but I hope this catches on.
