This wonderful clip is proof that Steve Ballmer is not only a better Los Angeles Clippers owner than Donald Sterling, he’s also a way better team owner than he is a Microsoft CEO. #DevelopersDevelopersDevelopersDevelopers

Dick Vitale has had a few too many desserts and a bit too much caffeine today.

Gotta admire Balmer. Anything he does, he does it with immense passion.

In fact, by mid-century more than four-fifths of the land in France, Italy and Spain that’s now used for vineyards will be producing grapes unsuited for wine, according to a 2013 study. Australia stands to lose up to three-quarters of its currently viable vineyard land; California’s looking at a 70% decline.

What’s really crazy is that England is likely to become a new hotbed of wine-making — literally.

Fascinating - England as a major wine producer. That’s exciting.

He looks more chilled than ‘losing the will to live’.

Aww. This is cool but also sad :(

Having fun exploring the official Nest SDK that just launched https://developer.nest.com/

Aaron Goldfarb on a trick Jim Koch, founder of Boston Beer Company taught him:

You see, what Owades knew was that active dry yeast has an enzyme in it called alcohol dehydrogenases (ADH). Roughly put, ADH is able to break alcohol molecules down into their constituent parts of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Which is the same thing that happens when your body metabolizes alcohol in its liver. Owades realized if you also have that enzyme in your stomach when the alcohol first hits it, the ADH will begin breaking it down before it gets into your bloodstream and, thus, your brain. 

“And it will mitigate – not eliminate – but mitigate the effects of alcohol!” Koch told me.

Just a spoonful of yeast, helps the beer go down. Also love the note about Koch, a billionaire, carrying his own glass around at all times.

Useful tip!
