I've recently seen the movie Edge of Tomorrow. All in all, it was a pretty good movie (and dare I say it, an awesome one).
The New York Times has an article with the following headline: "Revelations of N.S.A. Spying Cost U.S. Tech Companies".
While I don't have issue with the article itself, I'm going to have to disagree with the headline. Ultimately, it's not the revelations themselves that are the problem, it's the NSA's actions that have been costing U.S. tech companies ...
One of my pet peeves with certain stories I see in mainstream news outlets are those which say "scientists say ..." or "scientists discover ..." in the headline or in the story itself.
It's been really cold this week in the US northeast, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it's only cold relative to recent years, and that this chilliness was normal for winter around here decades ago. Despite that, it still feels like it was the coldest week in my life, undoubtedly because I don't really remember how cold it was on colder days!
It's been over two years since I wrote a post on the blog. I've been keeping the software up to date, but did little else during that time. With the new year, though, I've decided to revamp the blog with a new theme.
