Battery Life: 1½ Days Doesn’t Matter

Interesting point on phone battery life in Wired’s article on the Google Nexus line:

“One and a half days doesn’t matter….In the morning you want your battery to look 100 percent when you leave for the day. So either somebody solves it for a week battery, or you have to give reliably one solid day of battery.”

Party like it’s 1977…

Star Wars Toys Party on the Fisher Price Record Player.

Believe it or not, the record player is new. It turns out there’s a whole subset of the toy market for retro toys. It’s a bit different under the hood – I’ve had to fix it once already, and it’s actually chip-driven, not classic music box works. I figure it’s probably cheaper these days to make it with fewer moving parts.
