AWS H3 Is the Future of Hotels (Parody)

31 Oct 2016 N.B. This is a parody. If it comes off too snarky, well I really do like AWS. 😉 AWS just announced Amazon H3 (the Highly Hospitable Hotel), available now in us-east-1 and coming years later to the region you actually use. They’re leveraging all the infrastructure they have built for their data centres to create a new style of ‘pay as you go’ hotel. Here are some of the features and pricing schemes available at launch: Rooms are ‘virtualized’, with one large room split into many by flimsy cubicle dividers for multiple occupancy.

Vintage Radio Transformed into Custom PC Case

We see a lot of old radio restoration projects around here, and we have to admit to having mixed emotions about some of them. It seems a shame to go through the effort to lovingly restore a vintage Art Deco case only to stuff it with a Raspberry Pi and Bluetooth.
