6G and 7G

Details here, but the fun quote:
Interestingly, researchers in China say that this vision of 6G is the end of the line in terms of major platform upgrades and that there will never be a 7G. After 6G the goal over time will be to improve the performance of the various aspects of the technologies involved. Apparently, the Chinese have never met any AT&T and Verizon marketing staff.
And 640K is all anyone will every need.

I know... it's the Star Trek era with replicators...

GarageMate

I could see this GarageMate (Bluetooth garage door opener) being very handy for bike rides and things around the neighborhood. I wonder how frequently I would wish I could open the garage door remotely from work or somewhere. At $54 and an easy install, I may give it a whirl.

The Matrix is crazier than we all suspected...

Funny Machine Learning Outcomes

A great list...
Including such instance classics:
"In an artificial life simulation where survival required energy but giving birth had no energy cost, one species evolved a sedentary lifestyle that consisted mostly of mating in order to produce new children which could be eaten (or used as mates to produce more edible children)."
Or:
"A  robotic arm trained to slide a block to a target position on a table achieves the goal by moving the table itself."

That's not a bad way to look at it...

Nokia 8110

Nokia had some classic phones. They brought back the 3310 and now they are bringing back the 8110 - famous for its appearance in The Matrix.

Falcon Heavy

I came across a good video of the Falcon Heavy launch (via Ace of Spades), so I'm posting it so I can find it again easily. (As a reminder, some number of my posts are created b/c I have CRS (Can't Remember Stuff) Syndrome.

The engineers are just showing off around the 30 min mark when the two boosters land.

Home Network

I mentioned I was changing my network at home - getting my own cable modem (NETGEAR CM500-1AZNAS) and trying to decide what to do for wireless. I ended up ordering the ASUS RT-AC3200.

The specs look great and I'm optimistic that I can move it to a slightly more central location. The combination of the two changes should get me great coverage throughout the house. (And, if that's not perfect, I could look at the ASUS mesh networking - AiMesh.)

Also, I'm a fan the WRT software and like the ASUSWRT version as well. You can play around with an on-line demo of the software here.

Hopefully I can get everything moved to the new setup over the week-end. I already announced a scheduled network maintenance/outage for Sunday. Guess folks may have to read a book or something for a few minutes.
