The next big thing in PC storage (PCIe-based SSD)

Interesting to have 375gb as addressable memory for only $1500. I can see why people are excited about this.

Jackie Chan is China’s version of Chuck Norris.

Visual Studio for Mac (Xamarin), or Just Go Native?

Here’s an internal debate that’s been going on in my mind for some time now: Should I continue getting deeper into Xamarin, or should I learn Swift, maybe Java, and do the full native thing?   I have been learning Swift and I really like it, but, I still can’t totally get behind full native. […]
