Convenient Biometric Authentication

XKCD, Passwords

Consider this in the context of convenient biometric authenticaion like TouchID and FaceID.

Imagine you travelled to the US with a locked briefcase that contained every text message, email, and private message you’d ever sent to a loved one. It also included every web search you’d ever conducted, and?—?through your bank account and PayPal records?—?every purchase you’d ever made and every…

Do Not Disturb While Driving

Do Not Disturb While Driving

iOS, Maps

Do Not Disturb While Driving is my most anticipated feature in iOS 11.

While this feature is enabled, the iPhone stops pushing most notifications. Emergency alerts, timers, and alarms can break through. You can optionally allow the phone to reply to incoming text messages with an explanation (and a way to break through if it’s really important).

Incoming calls are allowed to come through, but…

I pulled one from the Lightroom catalog. I didn’t encounrter any queues of people waiting. Or animals waiting. This is as waiting as it gets.

Dark, Cars, Faculty Road, Princeton

[exif id=”31701″]

My initial thought after Frank posted this week’s photo challenge and seeing his photo was, “go grab some shots of the Shea Rowing Center.” The centre is lit at night and I thought I would get some good pictures of the lights of the centre illuminating the darkness along Faculty Road.

My plan was to leave work and head to Troon Brewing, have dinner next door at Brick Farm Tavern

What have we done?

“A lot of the designers and coders who were in their 20s when we were creating these things didn’t have kids. Now they have kids,” he says. “And they see what’s going on, and they say, ‘Wait a second.’ And they start to rethink their design decisions.” Nest founder and Apple designer Tony Fadell

Pro Versus Amateur

Park, Princeton, Leaves

Apple and Sony both announced new technology products on the same day last week.

Both companies are high tech powerhouses. Both are throwing lots of new core technology into the electronic guts of their products.

One plays like a pro. The other seems like an awkward teen trying to play like a pro.

This is a marketing difference, a message difference, an integration difference, a user…

Can we really change the world..

We can pick something up and move it somewhere else. We can share a thought or idea with others. It is within the ability of every single one of us to say, write, or do something that changes the parameters of the world right now — or at least a small corner of it. However, I get the sense that many of us are hung up on the issue of scale. We are…

When I checked Frank’s web site for the challenge theme and I saw his image of .. in Iceland, I couldn’t help thinking of the beaches of Antigua and Bequia . I just love all that blue. I find blue very calming and that water reminds me of one of the places in Antigua where I lived when I was in high-school. The house was built just up the roads from the aptly names, Blue Waters Resort.

I’ve a…

Raising my glass to the brother-in-law who makes growler deliveries from @conclavebrewing . The long lines and the small batches at @troonbrewing are making it difficult for locals to drink the ales. My budget can’t support the bar tab at Brick Farm Tavern. http://bit.ly/2er88Hj

Small World Coffee

One from the archives. I captured this image in 2010 while walking around Princeton one morning during one of my attempts at street photography.

It was also during my HDR phase when I overprocessed almost every image. This one is shiny.

On subscriptions:

The important point is that, if you’re able to readily switch to a different app when your current one changes its payment model, then… do it. Just vote with your wallet, and don’t worry about it. To write a pissy review of an app you liked yesterday, in an attempt to vengefully damage their business, is pretty reprehensible, right? It’s like giving one star on Amazon because…

Some photos from our road trip to the Tired Hands Brewing Fermenteria in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. Bhavna and I were on our way back from a road trip to Hollow Earth Brewing in Oxford, Pennsylvania.

This place is much bigger than Hollow Earth Brewing. Way bigger. We sat at one of the high chairs. The restaurant has a very “hipster” vibe. Bhavna and I ordered four ounce pours of ale. I had four IPAs. My favourite was the Alien Church.

We had hoped to bring some of the beer back to New Jersey but we soon learned that Tired Hands only fill beer in their branded growlers. Our server offered to trade our Troon Brewing growlers for one of theirs. But … Bhavna and I have an emotional attachment to the unique design of the Troon growlers.

I asked if they offered cans and was told yes. But … not the ones we had just had. Sigh. We left the Fermentaria and walked down the street toward the brewery store. I’ve never seen anything like this for a brewery. The store was designed like the inside of a Banana Republic.

We bought one stem and one stemless glass and a four-pack of Hop Hands.
