  • "I appreciate your tone on this, Rain. Seeing this all over news sites yesterday, and how everyone's crapping that his tunnel is a "failure," they don't seem to realize that this is essentially a PROTOTYPE. And the public never sees prototypes. I'm thinking for that very reason. So thanks for cutting Tesla some slack."

  • "Very forward thinking. Agree that the MB Pro was underwhelming. This is a great direction to be taking. Wondering how upgradable it will be. My computers tend to have a long life because they are easy to upgrade. It's also why I like having an independent Cintiq. It still works even on a new machine. And why are the ports on the back? Those things aside, I'm loving this direction from Microsoft, and wanna get my hands on one of those dials. Curious if they will come out with lower tier versions of this too."

  • "I find that this update requires some more new "learning" than previous updates, but that it will ultimately be beneficial. The fact that I can pick up my phone, it knows and turns on, I can view notifications and respond (to many of them) from that screen and be done, all without actually going "into" my phone is awesome. It means I have to break the habit of automatically pressing home though to wake my screen. Because now that will bypass notifications, since Touch ID is so blazingly fast (6s). It also means I'll lose my chance to shortcut the camera, which I use all the time. So I see why they changed from touching touch ID to unlock, to actually pressing home. The notion is pick up the phone and look: don't touch yet. See your notifications, do what you need to do. Then, touch, and go into the phone if you need to. It's actually quite intuitive, if we weren't all programmed to touch Home so quick. I think some apps need polishing to their notifications, but overall, once my behavior adjusts, I think it'll be a great improvement."

  • "That's exactly the point though. It's not about the brand. This is a potential hazard across the board. People thinking that it's just an Ikea issue are being misinformed. It's just Ikea that's receiving the blame for an overall product category. It's as if kids are getting injured from staplers, so Swingline gets sued because they're the recognizable stapler making people. Yes, it should be make public. But the focus should not be "Ikea's dangerous dresser." It should be "the potential hazards of lightweight dressers.""

  • "Rain, thanks for posting this. I've got 3 (almost 4) little ones myself and I always try to emphasize this to my friends. If anything, the media coverage about this will only make people vilify Ikea, and think, "oh, Ikea is terrible, but my WalMart dresser is safe," when in fact, this should be about publicizing the potential hazard that ALL dressers present. The nature of the media coverage of this is doing a giant disservice to public safety."

  • "Another interesting thought on the Homz box, the 2 halves actually nest in each other when not is use, making it a lot easier to store when not needed."
