I installed Windows 95 on my Apple Watch
With a 520 MHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage, the Apple Watch packs a lot of computing horsepower into a very small package. On paper, its processor alone is about twenty-five times faster than the average 386, and 512 MB was the size of a hard drive in the mid nineties, not memory. As a result, I was feeling confident that the Apple Watch had the ability to run one of the most revered desktop operating systems Redmond has ever produced.

Nytimes.com: Why Is Productivity So Weak? Three Theories
More than 151 million Americans count themselves employed, a number that has risen sharply in the last few years. The question is this: What are they doing all day? Because whatever it is, it barely seems to be registering in economic output. The number of hours Americans worked rose 1.9 percent in the year ended in March. New data released Thursday showed that gross domestic product in the first quarter was up 1.9 percent over the previous year. Despite constant advances in software, equipment and management practices to try to make corporate America more efficient, actual economic output is merely moving in lock step with the number of hours people put in, rather than rising as it has throughout modern history.

The Code4Lib Journal – How to Party Like it’s 1999: Emulation for Everyone
You double-click, and you’re confronted with discouraging error messages about incompatibility or, even worse, your modern operating system literally has no idea what to do with a file extension you’ve handed it. What now? Maybe you’ve heard something about emulation, about how to run an older computer in a newer computer. How does that work? Can you make that kind of magic happen? Yes, it’s possible: you can, in fact, party like it’s 1999.

Emulation has long been discussed, but how does it happen? [1] It may feel like many in the library and archives communities now support emulation, but that wasn’t always the case. In previous years, emulation and migration were pitted against one another as strategies (then largely hypothetical) for preserving and creating access to complex born-digital material. Enter “migration vs. emulation” and “digital preservation” in a search box today and you will still find traces of the false dichotomy from the early to mid 2000s.

iOS Games Worth Playing
Every so often, a friend asks me for iOS game recommendations. I scramble around to see what I currently have installed on my phone, and invariably end up neglecting to mention one of my favorite games. This has been happening more and more often, which made me realize I should be writing my thoughts down. I thus give you the definitive list of iOS games that I think are worth playing.

Noisey — Prince Wrote About Women In a Way That Most Contemporary Male Artists Still Can't
In “The Ballad of Dorothy Parker”, he storms out of a fight with his girlfriend and finds somewhere on the promenade to sulk alone. After ordering a fruit cocktail, the waitress picks him up and asks him if he wants to take a bath with her. They spend the evening together, but instead of having sex, he just sits in the tub with his pants on and they listen to Joni Mitchell on the radio. His girlfriend calls him, and he goes home. They stop fighting, because he knows what to do now. Hanging out with Dorothy taught him how to be a friend to his girlfriend, and that a nonsexual relationship can be as fulfilling as a sexual one. “No other male songwriter of his or any other generation wrote songs about women like this,” Rob Sheffield wrote for Rolling Stone.

Kråkfåglarna - ovanligt intelligenta och med spännande sociala vanor 24 september 2011 kl 21:03
Kråkfåglar som korpar, kråkor, skator och kajor är inte bara roliga att titta på - de är också mycket intelligenta - i alla fall med fåglars mått mätt. Kråkfåglar i allmänhet är helt enkelt smarta. Hur kan det komma sig? Och hur har deras spännande sociala relationer utvecklats? Vi träffar Jan Ekman som är professor i ekologi vid universitetet i Uppsala och forskar i det här ämnet. Roliga berättelser om kråkors förhållande till såväl biskopar som ubåtar (!) förser oss lyssnare med. I mitten på 1920-talet tjänstgjorde Väinö Strömberg som matros på ubåten Sälen i Karlskrona. Väinö hade med sig en tam kråka ombord, Kraxen. Hur det gick till när Kraxen lyckades sabotera en hel militärövning hör vi Gunilla Thelander berätta om. Trollsländor blir allt fler naturvänner intresserade av. Vi har följt med entomologen Linda Strand på trollsländejakt vid Skanörs Ljung - som annars är ett eldorado för fågelskådare på hösten. En ovanlig fågelbok ska vi också presentera. Till skillnad från de flesta fälthandböcker vill den visa hur man bär sig åt för att identifiera olika fågelarter.

The Ingenious Way Iranians Are Using Satellite TV to Beam in Banned Internet
Last month, a Los Angeles-based group of eight Iranian and American activists that calls itself Net Freedom Pioneers officially launched Toosheh, that free anti-censorship system. Toosheh, Farsi for “knapsack” or “bundle,” is designed to allow Iranians to use their ubiquitous TV satellite dishes as an alternative to the country’s underdeveloped and highly censored internet, where a government body called the Supreme Council for Cyberspace blocks everything from “anti-Islamic” sites to news coverage of opposition political groups. By broadcasting on its own satellite TV channel and distributing a piece of Windows desktop software that can decode that satellite video stream, the Toosheh project sends thousands of Iranians a daily digital bundle of news articles, videos, and audio—everything from Persian music videos to critical news coverage of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. “When they use our software all the content disguised in the video file is extracted and opens in a folder for them,” says Mehdi Yahyanejad, the founder of Net Freedom Pioneers as well as Balatarin, a Reddit-like social news site in Persian. “It can’t be censored…it comes from the sky. Our users just get a big folder of content, and there’s no trace of it on the internet.”

Wikipedia.org: Icelandic name
Icelandic names differ from most current Western family name systems by being patronymic (occasionally matronymic): they reflect the father (or mother) of the child and not the historic family lineage. Iceland shares a common cultural heritage with the Scandinavian countries of Norway, Sweden and Denmark with its crown dependency, the Faroe Islands. Icelanders, however, unlike other Scandinavians, have continued to use their traditional name system, which was formerly used by all Nordic nations.[a] The Icelandic system is thus not based on family names (although some people do have family names and might use both systems). Generally, a person's last name indicates the first name of his/her father (patronymic) or in some cases mother (matronymic).

For What It’s Worth: A Review of the Wu-Tang Clan’s “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin”
This is what we know: On November 24, 2015, the Wu-Tang Clan sold its latest album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, through an online auction house. As one of the most innovative rap groups, the Wu-Tang Clan had used concepts for their recordings before, but the latest album would be their highest concept: it would exist as only one copy—as an LP, that physical, authentic format for music—encased in an artisanally crafted box. This album would have only one owner, and thus, perhaps, only one listener. By legal agreement, the owner would not be allowed to distribute it commercially until 88 years from now.

Anandtech.com: Understanding the 9.7" iPad Pro's Display: How DCI-P3 & True Tone Work
Earlier this month Apple launched a smaller version of the iPad Pro. At 9.7" it essentially takes the place of the iPad Air 2 as Apple's flagship standard sized tablet. While many observers expected it to simply be a smaller version of the larger iPad Pro, the launch event brought a number of surprises which made it clear that this new iPad was not simply a miniaturization of the larger model. While I plan to go over all of the specifics in our full review, I did want to address some confusion I've seen regarding one of the key new aspects of the 9.7" iPad Pro, which is its display.

Why Wait? The Science Behind Procrastination
Believe it or not, the Internet did not give rise to procrastination. People have struggled with habitual hesitation going back to ancient civilizations. The Greek poet Hesiod, writing around 800 B.C., cautioned not to “put your work off till tomorrow and the day after.” The Roman consul Cicero called procrastination “hateful” in the conduct of affairs. (He was looking at you, Marcus Antonius.) And those are just examples from recorded history. For all we know, the dinosaurs saw the meteorite coming and went back to their game of Angry Pterodactyls.

Stackoverflow.com: html - Strip url to 1 word in Jekyll
I managed to solve it with three filters:

{{ page.url | replace:'/',' ' | truncatewords: 1 | remove:'...' }}

page.url outputs: /page/cat/title, then replace removes the forward slashes producing: page cat title. truncatewords truncates the string down to one word, producing: page... (for some reason three dots gets inserted after the remaining word). After all this I only needed to remove those dots with remove and voilá, my final string: page.

Hope this helps someone.

Active Tabs in your Nav
When I started using jekyll, I could not figure out how to add classes to the current page's nav item. Wordpress does this automatically, and makes it easy for the user to know what page (s)he is on.

One way to display an active tab is to compare the current page's url with the nav item's url:


<ul id="nav">
<li{% if page.url == '/about.html' %} class="active"{% endif %}>
<a href="/about.html">About</a>
</li>
<li{% if page.url == '/news.html' %} class="active"{% endif %}>
<a href="/news.html">News</a>
</li>
<li{% if page.url == '/contact.html' %} class="active"{% endif %}>
<a href="/contact.html">Contact</a>
</li>

Stackoverflow.com: Jekyll - Automatically highlight current tab in menu bar
I feel like for the simplest navigation requirement, the listed solutions are overly complex. Here's a solution that involves no front matter, javascript, loops, etc.

Since we have access to the page URL, we can normalize and split the URL and test against the segments, like so:

{% assign current = page.url | downcase | split: '/' %}

<nav>
<ul>
<li><a href='/about' {% if current[1] == 'about' %}class='current'{% endif %}>about</a></li>
<li><a href='/blog' {% if current[1] == 'blog' %}class='current'{% endif %}>blog</a></li>
<li><a href='/contact' {% if current[1] == 'contact' %}class='current'{% endif %}>contact</a></li>
</ul>
</nav>

Of course, this is only useful if static segments provide the means to delineate the navigation. Anything more complicated, and you'll have to use front matter like @RobertKenny demonstrated.

Don’t Fear the Internet
Are you a print designer, photographer, fine-artist, or general creative person? Do you have a shitty website that you slapped together yourself in Dreamweaver in that ONE web design class that you took in college? Do you not have a site at all because you’ve been waiting two years for your cousin to put it together for you? Well, we’re here to help. We know that you have little to no desire to do web design professionally, but that doesn’t mean that you want an ugly cookie-cutter site or to settle for one that hasn't been updated since Hackers was in theaters. Through short tutorial videos, you’ll learn how to take a basic wordpress blog and manipulate the css, html (and even some php!) to match your aesthetic. You’ll feel empowered rather than crippled by the internet and worst case scenario you’ll at least end up having a better idea of how professional web designers turn your design dreams into a reality on screen.

Computer post follow-up: The relative reliability of laptops versus desktops
In a post on the merits of laptops versus desktops, I wrote that “the inflated notebook total [regarding units sold] is probably in part due to the disposable nature and limited longevity of notebooks.” Two e-mailers took issue with this assertion because I didn’t have any direct evidence backing it up aside from the obvious engineering constraints that impair notebooks. Evidence isn’t easy to find. The best I’ve seen comes from a recent issue of Consumer Reports, which says: Cons: Laptops cost more than comparably equipped desktops. Our reliability surveys show laptops are more repair-prone than desktops. Components are more expensive to repair.

Royalsocietypublishing.com: Ravens, New Caledonian crows and jackdaws parallel great apes in motor self-regulation despite smaller brains¨
Overriding motor impulses instigated by salient perceptual stimuli represent a fundamental inhibitory skill. Such motor self-regulation facilitates more rational behaviour, as it brings economy into the bodily interaction with the physical and social world. It also underlies certain complex cognitive processes including decision making. Recently, MacLean et al. (MacLean et al. 2014 Proc. Natl Acad. Sci. USA 111, 2140–2148. (doi:10.1073/pnas.1323533111)) conducted a large-scale study involving 36 species, comparing motor self-regulation across taxa. They concluded that absolute brain size predicts level of performance. The great apes were most successful. Only a few of the species tested were birds. Given birds’ small brain size—in absolute terms—yet flexible behaviour, their motor self-regulation calls for closer study. Corvids exhibit some of the largest relative avian brain sizes—although small in absolute measure—as well as the most flexible cognition in the animal kingdom. We therefore tested ravens, New Caledonian crows and jackdaws in the so-called cylinder task. We found performance indistinguishable from that of great apes despite the much smaller brains. We found both absolute and relative brain volume to be a reliable predictor of performance within Aves. The complex cognition of corvids is often likened to that of great apes; our results show further that they share similar fundamental cognitive mechanisms.

Wikipedia.org: Projection mapping
Projection mapping, also known as video mapping and spatial augmented reality, is a projection technology used to turn objects, often irregularly shaped, into a display surface for video projection. These objects may be complex industrial landscapes, such as buildings, small indoor objects or theatrical stages. By using specialized software, a two- or three-dimensional object is spatially mapped on the virtual program which mimics the real environment it is to be projected on. The software can interact with a projector to fit any desired image onto the surface of that object.[1] This technique is used by artists and advertisers alike who can add extra dimensions, optical illusions, and notions of movement onto previously static objects. The video is commonly combined with, or triggered by, audio to create an audio-visual narrative.
