Wow. I thought that 4K (improved HD TV standard) was most likely a marketing ploy to sell TVs. I’ve changed my mind. This footage is incredible on my non-retina (but 1920×1080) laptop display. It should be extraordinary on a big TV. Find the biggest bestest computer screen you have and enjoy.
I like the idea of bitcoin, but I have to agree that it feels crazily bubbly. Also, no sensible government would let a uncontrolled currency loose on the world.
The Bitcoin bubble, at $1 billion, is tiny compared to those that burst in 2000 and 2008. Nevertheless, because Bitcoins are the most demonstrably valueless financial asset ever created, they represent the sharpest ever refutation of the efficient-markets hypothesis.
One contrary thought: if there is value in currency dealings being near anonymous and untraceable, then no other currency has that baked into it. Could that be the source of value that Bitcoin needs to avoid the argument above?
There is no obvious way to get playlists out of Spotify in any sort of usable format, so thankfully others have done the heavy lifting.
The super easy way: select all in a playlist (ctrl+A for Windows) and then drag the selection into a blank Word document. You’ll have enough and the links will open the tracks in Spotify.
The heavier-weight alternative: install a custom app into Spotify. You’ll need to flag your account as a developer one (just log in to the developer portal, no cost) and then maybe log in and out of Spotify. I found this app didn’t work for the starred playlist, so I made a static version of the starred list and we were all good.
There is a Lego display in Times Square right now, but no swimming pool. And it is lucky for you if you have a smattering of not-quite-yutping that you can see the Causeway Bay MTR station (Tung Lo Wan Zaam), although it is not shown anywhere else, and Times Square is the furthest exit from the actual station.
