Two interesting days of Track Cycling and two controversial Team GB medals at Rio 2016

On Monday, Mark Cavendish won a silver medal in the omnium after a controversial crash, which he caused. Many, myself included, think he did that on purpose, both based on the footage ( — in which he can bee seen looking back twice — and his "moments" in road cycling, which are well known by cycling fans. Cavendish has not been found guilty.
I was watching BBC and the commentators barely spoke about the moment and didn't ask questions about it when a reporter interviewed Cavendish after the race. In my opinion, that was quite remarkable.

MacBook Pro 2016 rumors

Opinion: What can we expect from the 2016 MacBook Pro, and will it be worth the wait?:

I hope the MacBook Pro will not become another victim of Apple’s obsession for thinness. Because this is a “pro” device, I think people demand a lot of ports, including USB 3.0 and maybe even HDMI. The touch strip rumor is both interesting and weird. Yes, it offers opportunities to customize keys in specific apps, but it sounds like a gimmick.

Quick thoughts on Google I/O 2016

I'm excited about all the Google Assistant stuff. Google Home is not something I'd personally need at this point, but I think it has more potential than something like Echo (except for shopping, probably).
