So you like pictures of old tech?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ENIAC

ENIAC (/ˈɛniæk/; Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer)[1][2] was the first programmable, electronic, general-purpose digital computer, completed in 1945. There were other computers that had these features, but the ENIAC had all of them in one package. It was Turing-complete and able to solve "a large class of numerical problems" through reprogramming.

"Smart" must mean bluetooth, an app on your phone, possibly wifi and some internal memory to store settings and allow control over the internet, like turn on the light from your phone before entering your house. I don't know.

I honestly thought it was a toilet at first.

It looks really hard to use. Usually I'd scoot my chair back when going through drawers, and that wouldn't be possible with that desk.

That's a thing now

But if you must, mix coke with rum, and not an expensive one.

I woke up early today. I took a peek out my bedroom window and saw...CLEAR SKIES.

I got up and got these edited pics of the sky using my iPhone 11 Pro handheld set to take 2-second exposures.

Mercury had JUST faded out of view (I was able to see it just seconds before taking this pic), Venus and the Moon:

Image

Those brighter blue-green objects in the sky are internal reflections of the bright lights on the ground. Venus is the dimmer light above the telephone pole near the bottom-center.The slightly dimmer star to the left of Venus is Aldebaran in Taurus. Yes, I was standing in my street. I did add a white box over the license plate of that white car near the bottom right corner.

Mars, Jupiter and Saturn:

Image

Saturn was close to straight south of me.

Cool

I've been wanting to try and take a pic like that, but it's all clouds around here. All I could do was open my astronomy app and see what I was missing.

I mean, this is one product which makes A LOT of sense.

It's been a well-known drink for a long time.

That isn't a new product, though it apparently has been updated with the newer variants of Coke. I remember a guy in college drinking premix Jack and Coke out of a can 25 years ago because they were easier to pass off as a soft drink while walking to parties.

As I recall, they weren't that great.

Again, cola+rum, not any kind of whiskey, add a squeeze of lemon.

Anyway, I was just surprised by coca-cola selling booze.

Apple released its first printer, the Silentype, in 1980. The thermal printer was a successful product for Apple, as it was much cheaper than the majority of its rivals at $699 and was silent in operation. It had a great reliability record, was small in size and had a decent print speed. It had to use a special paper, but could provide 80-column output, while most rival products could only provide 40-column output.
