    With the gains real estate has made over stocks in the past 25 years, it's easy to see why the rich constantly use it to expand their wealth. What's slightly less obvious is why only the rich seem to ever break into real estate investment. There are a lot of reasons, but a couple of big ones stand out. First, money. Most private equity real estate funds require their investors to be accredited, and that takes a pretty significant six-figure income. And if you want to buy and renovate properties, you need to deal with the hassle of being a landlord, or the additional expense of hiring a (...) -- DiversyFund, all the details at DiversyFund, DiversyFund, all the details at DiversyFund

    LG is in talks with Apple to supply LCD displays for the successor to the iPhone SE, with the panels currently undergoing last-minute quality checks, according to industry sources cited by Korean website The Elec. The report claims the budget device is scheduled to be released in early 2020. Apple sticking with an LCD for the device would be no surprise given cost considerations, with previous reports claiming the so-called "iPhone SE 2" will sport a 4.7-inch display like the iPhone 8. This has disappointed some fans of the original iPhone SE, which has a smaller 4-inch display ideal for (...) -- iPhone SE, No Autolink, LG

    The Dropbox situation has become more dire. I pretty much have to stop everything and reconceive how I work with my servers from my desktop. Something broke. I may have a workaround. The lesson is that when you depend on other people's tech, at some point it will fail, and then what will you do. It's hard to have a plan for this kind of outage.

    Bootstrapped tech company Doist, the company behind popular task management Todoist, is releasing a major update called Todoist Foundations — the update should be rolled out over the next 24 hours.

Task lists in Todoist don’t have to be an endless list of checkboxes anymore. You can now create sections in your projects. You can then move tasks from one section to another, and collapse sections when you don’t need to see them. Down the road, those sections (...) -- Apps, Mobile, Startups, doist, todoist

    The Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker official trailer is finally here and the internet is reacting accordingly. People are excited, nervous, completely in their feelings, and if you've seen the trailer, you know all the reasons why. All of the above is to be expected, this being the final chapter in the Skywalker saga that began all the way back in 1977.  That also means *sniffle* this will be the last Skywalker film to mine for memes. But now is not the time to mourn! Now is the time to meme, and thankfully, The Force is very much with the internet in that department.

    FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is ostensibly the chief regulator of the telecoms industry. But the way he was chatting with the president of a prominent lobbying group, you could be forgiven for not knowing that.  At Mobile World Congress in L.A. on Tuesday, Pai joined the president of the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA), Meredith Atwell Baker, on stage for a keynote discussion about 5G deployment, the digital divide, the sale of broadband spectrum, and more.  The discussion went from awkward to eerie as Baker — again, the head of a mobile industry lobbying firm — (...) -- Ajit Pai, 5g, Tech, Consumer Tech, Politics

Coined more than two decades ago, the term "Great Firewall of China" refers to the Chinese government's ongoing efforts to regulate and censor the internet within the borders of the country's mainland.

    Earlier this month, Netflix reported its third quarter results for 2019 and they make for positive reading. Revenue is up, income doubled, and millions more people subscribed to the service. However, Netflix is a rapidly maturing service and it will become increasingly challenging to continue growing, so the problem of password sharing has been raised.

    Exxon began its trial — for allegedly deceiving its investors about the sizable financial risks posed by climate change — at the New York State Supreme Court on Tuesday. The deep-pocketed oil behemoth, which has vast oil reserves in Brazil, Canada, Texas, Guyana, Malaysia, the Netherlands and beyond, is in legal trouble, according to environmental law experts.

Will this be a good costume? No. Will it exist as a costume on a technicality alone? Yes. But for yet another year, you'll have gotten away with another Halloween doing almost nothing.

    The typical performance chart has two axes. And one is time. We can't do anything at all about time, so there's really one axis. How fast did your profits grow? How many nofollowers did you add to your account? How much muscle did you add to your calves? The problem with a graph that only has one axis is that it's dumb. No room for nuance. It's a blunt instrument, easy to game. If you want your profits to go up faster, simply cut corners. If you want more nofollowers, buy them, or lower your standards, or pick a fight. And if you want to add muscle faster, sacrifice your health… Adults (...) -- Uncategorized

My ground-back piece of welded tube. Eagle-eyed readers will spot that the grinding reveals a weld that isn’t perfect. Recently, I wrote a piece in which I talked about my cheap inverter welder and others like it. As part of it I did a lower-current weld on a piece of thin tube and before snapping a picture of the weld I ground it back flat.
