A nice preview of the new voice activated Siri coming to iOS 8.

 Eve | elgato.com

Eve, by elgato just introduced at IFA 2014, is a new set of sensors and a matching iOS app for your home.  It will be compatible with Apple’s HomeKit when released with iOS 8 and looks to be very cool, if priced right.  

I am all for hooking up my home with sensors and widgets for making life better, more efficient, and more comfortable, but you better not be expecting me to drop thousands of dollars to do so.  

Pricing hasn’t been announced except for Elgato’s LED light bulb, which looks like and is priced competivitly with the “Hue” bulbs that have been out for a few years.  But what I really want is a starter kit that will include all the basics plus maybe a three or 4 pack of bulbs for $200.  Then I wouldn’t mind adding to it as I go along.

But I don’t think that’s going to work that way.  Look for this whole set up as pictured to hit some pretty big bucks.

Scientists catch Schrödinger’s cat with quantum physics

I have to admit, right up front.  This one is over my head folks.  I can follow basic quantum physics for a bit, but this entanglement stuff?  I’ll leave that one to the experts.  None the less, it’s pretty awesome that they were able to prove the whole Schrodinger’s Cat puzzle after all these years.  Now perhaps the boffins can move on to that damn tree that keeps falling in the woods.

 Swatch is finally coming around to this ‘smartwatch’ business

I’m not sure that simple adding fitness monitoring to a watch makes it a smart watch.   In my mind anyway it need some sort of connectivity too.  But still….  its nice to see more traditional watch makers entering the field of watches that do more than just tell the time.
