Why Does Windows Have Terrible Battery Life?   —  I've become a huge fan of touch computing.  I believe that most things we think of as “computers” will be de-facto tablets, either in our pocket, in our hands, possibly even mounted on our wrists or forearms.

The CODE Keyboard   —  What would you do, if you could do anything?  —  I don't mean in a fantasy superhero way, but in terms of resources.  If someone told you that you now had the resources to attempt to make one thing happen in the world, one real thing, what would that be?

Touch Laptops   —  I'm a little embarrassed to admit how much I like the Surface RT. I wasn't expecting a lot when I ordered it, but after a day of use, I realized this was more than Yet Another Gadget.  It might represent a brave new world of laptop design.  How can you not love a laptop that lets you touch Zardoz to unlock it?

New Programming Jargon   —  Stack Overflow - like most online communities I've studied - naturally trends toward increased strictness over time.  It's primarily a defense mechanism, an immune system of the sort a child develops after first entering school or daycare and being exposed to the wide …

The PHP Singularity   —  Look at this incredible thing Ian Baker created.  Look at it!  —  What you're seeing is not Photoshopped.  This is an actual photo of a real world, honest to God double-clawed hammer.  Such a thing exists.  Isn't that amazing?  And also, perhaps, a little disturbing?

Please Don't Learn to Code   —  The whole “everyone should learn programming” meme has gotten so out of control that the mayor of New York City actually vowed to learn to code in 2012.  —  A noble gesture to garner the NYC tech community vote, for sure, but if the mayor of New York City actually needs …
