Multiplication Through Subtraction

Most people believe that producing a better result in some area of their life requires that they start doing something, that they add something to what they are already doing. Better results, as far as they are concerned, requires they do something new. Better is found through addition. Taleb introduced me to the idea of Via Negativa, the idea that better is more often found in subtraction. It’s more likely that you will find the better results you want by subtracting, eliminating things instead...

Amazon and Microsoft are fighting for a $10 billion Pentagon contract — and HQ2 in Virginia could be Jeff Bezos' boss move (AMZN, MSFT)

Crystal City, Virginia, is a likely contender for Amazon to build its second headquarters HQ2, and the fact that it's near Washington, D.C. is "well timed" as Amazon competes for a massive $10 billion cloud contract with the Pentagon, analysts say. Still, both Amazon and Microsoft investors should be paying attention, as Microsoft also has a strong chance in winning the contract. There's an estimated $20 billion in cloud spending up for grabs from the government, and whoever wins the contract ...

Review: Aukey’s KM-G3 is a great entry-level mechanical gaming keyboard

Mechanical keyboards are the kind of product the adage “you get what you pay for” was created to describe. The best cost $200 or more. Quality gets pretty hit-or-miss once you dip below the $100 range. And at less than $75 you can assume you’re getting something from the bargain bin. Luckily, there’s a little-known company named Aukey quietly changing that with its pretty-damn-good $65 KM-G3. The KM-G3 is a blue switch (Outemu, not Cherry MX), 104-Key RGB Backlit Gaming Keyboard with Customizabl...

Can the startup building a Fortnite for VR become the Fortnite of VR?

Virtual reality hasn’t proven itself to be the lucrative escape of the every-man, but the medium has done a fairly good job enticing the gaming community and keeping that niche (mostly) happy. While a couple of big titles have gotten some halfway-decent ports to VR, for the most part VR users are confined to whatever indies can build or whatever Oculus can fund. BigBox VR has been trying to capture attention in the space by not building solo adventures that lead users to find themselves, but i...

CEO Jeff Lawson says Twilio is committing $1M to homelessness programs after Prop C passed: 'Let's get it done' (TWLO)

Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson announced that his company will commit $1 million to support homelessness programs. This comes after 60 percent voted "yes" to San Francisco's homelessness measure "Prop C" on Tuesday, but this measure, which would bring the city $300 million in funding for homelessness programs, is likely to face legal disputes that could keep the funding on reserve for years. Twilio previously did not take a position on Prop C, but Lawson says Prop C should motivate San Francisco busin...

Prima Games to cease publishing its strategy guides after 28 years

Reports today revealed that Prima Games, the company behind those strategy guides you see at every game store, was shutting down after almost three decades. It’s the end of an era, truly. Prima game guides have been around since 1990. Originally famous for its massive print guides (I think I could have used the Skyrim guide to play Whac-a-mole), Prima had since branched out into digital guides and strategy guides. But apparently that wasn’t enough to keep it afloat. According to an internal memo...
