Seriously? Coffee? Are Americans THAT f*cking lazy to get coffee now? I get it when someone is ordering something that isn't within walking distance, but Coffee?

You must of heard me and the crowds of others express the same thought.

But something I've learned, is when I hear ridiculous ideas like Rap and hip-hop, vines, tweets, Trump, etc, they've gone completely opposite of what I would think. Oh well.

So I just had my 20th Anniversary here at Boeing. Man, where did the time go. And actually it's longer... I'll explain later.

So Boeing gives gifts at certain anniversaries. I was given a nice limit and I could choose anything out of the Boeing Store. Most of it... Big Meh, but then I came across this...



It's Skullcandy's Air Raid Bluetooth Speaker. It's small but heavy. It does not have good bass response. But it is very loud and very clear. This will work perfectly nice out in the garage. Not bad for free.

I just recently purchased JBL's Charge 2 which is sonically awesome. But I will use that for all my other outdoor stuff.



Oh, I almost forgot. Actually I've been working here at Boeing for 26+ years. The early years were as a contractor. When I signed up as a Boeing Employee, they did not take into account those years.  :'(

I really like my JBL Charge. It's just so portable and easy to use. I find the sound very respectable. I heard murmurs of JBL's Charge 3. Then I watched a ton of video's comparing it against others and JBL's other products. Where these folks got these early releases, I dunno. Because it's not going to be available here in the states until a few weeks. But I'm sold. Gonna get it. Not sure if I'll keep the 2. Maybe it can do link up with the new? Kick the video sound up. It rocks a little.

This is the kinda tech I love...

World's First Unboxing in 360

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cq9ng4Ic5Bk

Even though this should be in the Hardware thread because the unboxing is for a laptop, I'm posting this here because its more about the fact that his video is interactive and you can manipulate it any way you can. You have to go to his YouTube page for this to work. Once the video is playing, go to where the Arrow Dial is on the video and just click and/or drag on the arrow to move it around. I see this becoming the next 'Big Thing' on YouTube as more and more people adopt this for their own stuff.

No kidding. I saw some other related videos. One said it was a result of hail. In Iraq? Another shows a guy wading in the stuff. It was less river flow and just odd to see.

I wasn't quite sure where to post this, but since it's about the relationship between people and technology, I'll post it here.

Why 80s Babies Are Different Than Other Millenials via PopSugar..

This is stuff I had thought about, and am actually very appreciate about, being born in that sweet spot that the article talks about, especially now that I deal so much with my new relatives who are a couple years apart from me age-wise and realizing how different our experiences are.

Part of my take away from that article is the author believes social media is a negative, a decline?
