LoopPay. All I can think of is George Costanza and his interaction with Lupe. I hope Samsung likes a tight tuck.  
Have you ever been on a street where businesses are required to use ground level signage? No tall signs allowed. It brings your eyes down and opens up sight lines and can make even a shabby street look just a bit better. I agree, human scale is best for humans since most of us are.
 All of the Japanese carmakers have design disabilities. It's rare for them to make a car that actually looks good or innovative. Most of their cars appear either committee designed or pulled out of someone's butt.
RC vehicles of the past were of infinitesimal impact on safety, privacy and security. Drones are enough of a leap in capability, capacity and popularity that they are different. The use and abuse of drones is exploding and something needs to be done before something bad happens. It would be better to regulate now instead for waiting for a passenger jet to go down into a neighborhood because a drone takes out an engine during takeoff. The proposed regulations are not hyper...
I think I now know what Marc Newson is working on.

I wonder if that is absolutely true?
Yes indeed, I was thinking of evolutionary change. 
Yeah this is why I really dislike so many of the machinations of the business world. It's all vaguely deceptive, sneaky and smells bad even though it is entirely legal.  Given a problem to solve, my brain innately looks for the simple, straightforward and honest way to solve it.  Business people never do that and instead look for the "advantage" that benefits them first, and the company second and maybe even the customer (not usually).  The competitive world is the realm...
Surprising to see FORTRAN still so high on the list. That was the language that sent me screaming away from the idea that I could ever understand anything about programming.
