BLE Sending more than 20 Bytes of Data

Last year when I was designing the BLE App, one of the hurdle we faced was the packet size. I couldn’t send more than 20 bytes of data at once. So I had to created packets of 20 bytes and send them one by one, with some headers for packet information. On the receiver side I had to receive the data, organise the packets, remove the headers and stitch the data together. It’s not a very new problem, so I got to work and designed the packet creation algorithm. Format 1 initial BLE packet design...

Using Habitica to Build Habits and GTD

I have been using Habitica for last two months very religiously. Habitica is an open source project meant to promote good habits by introducing the concepts of role playing game. I started using Habitica in 2015, on and off. But since this February I have been using it regularly.

FAQ: How Do We Move the Car Between Ports While Cruising?

When we first moved aboard our boat, Y-Not, we were not sure if it would be practical to keep our MINI Cooper that we’ve towed behind our vintage bus conversion Zephyr since 2011. Would it be a hassle to need to constantly move our car between ports as we travel? How would we even do that? And this has actually become one of our most frequently asked questions over the past two years – just how do we move our car (and eventually our van) between marinas? There is the easy way, and there is the a...

Apps for Seniors

Friend and news anchor Diane Ako produces a series called “Aging Well” on KITV4, covering stories of interest to seniors. A few weeks ago, she asked if I knew anyone who could talk about apps for people over 55. I asked my dad who, in turn, provided a couple of likely subject matter experts at Honolulu senior living complexes. “Would you be able to come on KITV and talk about apps?” Diane asked. “What’s an app?” came the reply. And that’s how I ended up the primary source on a story abo...

Face It. Hate is Profitable.

Of all the places I’ve traveled to around the world, my favorite by far is New Zealand. Not only is its natural beauty absolutely spectacular, but its people are incredibly warm and welcoming. And as a Native Hawaiian, I was especially struck by how the indigenous Māori people had forged and maintained respectful and equal relationships with the western world. They weren’t marginalized or caricatured cast-offs lost in the military industrial-slash-tourism complex. They were respected and...

MUJI X Sensible 4’s Self-Driving Bus premiered in Finland. We got a chance to sit in it!

It’s only natural that the world’s first fully autonomous self-driving bus would come out of Finland. Finland, believe it or not, is often considered to be the ‘Silicon Country’ that gave the world Nokia and pretty much set the very blueprint for mobile communications. Nokia was founded in Finland, and for over two grand decades before Apple launched the iPhone, Nokia was the standard to beat. In fact, there’s a high likelihood that your first phone was a Nokia (I know mine was). Post-2010 whe...

Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp Go Down

Facebook was down for 22 hours yesterday, and its sister apps Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger also saw extensive outages. It was unusual in the sense that the four applications are each distinct codebases, but perhaps not suprising as all four share the same massive infrastructure. The joke is that global worker productivity shoots up whenever Facebook goes down, and you would think that Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp and Messenger are nothing more than distractions in our increasingly digi...

Elizabeth Warren wants to break up Google, Amazon and Facebook

The influential Massachusetts Senator and Presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren has been a longtime critic of the consolidation of economic power by Amazon, Google, and Facebook. Now she’s making their break-up a key component of her Presidential platform. Warren has just released her plan for breaking up big tech, in what seems like a watershed moment for a Democratic nominee. Since Al Gore famously (infamously?) “invented the internet”, Democratic candidates have turned away from seri...
