Crafting MLB’s Schedule

Major league baseball's schedule affects the lives of millions of Americans. For 25 years, the masterminds behind the massive undertaking were The Stephensons. A husband and wife duo working with a computer, a pencil and a great deal of cooperation.

ESPN has a great video on the husband-wife team that have crafted MLB's schedule for 25 years.

At about 0:40 in you'll hear this:

In ten years you can generate more possible schedule solutions than there are atoms in the universe.

Concussions in Baseball Too

I hadn't ever thought about it, but apparently concussions are common in baseball among catchers (foul tips can be especially dangerous). In fact, concussions are causing arguably the best catcher in baseball to try out first base.

Apple and the Black Executive

Khoi Vinh points out that Apple doesn't have a black executive posted on their executive profiles page.

Huh????

Seatbelts

I'm posting that because it's pretty interesting, and the seatbelt is largely unchanged.

I'm also posting that because I've seen a long thread on a forum somewhere in which a few people keep posting rants about how the government is tyrannical and should not be legislating seat belt use, and blah blah blah.

Christmas Tree Harvesting

This video shows:

Christmas Tree harvesting at Noble Mountain Christmas Tree Farm in Oregon. Pilot Dan Clark flying a Northwest Helicopters, LLC 206B3 Jetranger November of 2008. Oregon is the nation's biggest producer and exporter of Christmas trees, selling about 7.3 million trees a year, more than twice that of No. 2 North Carolina.

The largest Christmas tree producer in the state is Holiday Tree Farms of Corvallis, shipping about 1 million trees a year. Manager Dave Silen says a shift toward more family gatherings this year could help sales. The holiday trees represent a $101 million industry in Oregon.

Mobile Marketing 2013 Facts

2016 turns out to be an interesting year coming up, a kind of watershed for online and mobile gaming. Almost 80% of the gamers worldwide are playing as mobile customers. Mobile gaming, with its large surge of players in 2013, a surge that is expected to continue, will double its growth by 2016.

What we find particularly interesting (even more than the demographic stuff like age ranges or gender or behaviours of gamers) is how popular tablet gaming is becoming. Can you guess the expected growth rate for tablets in particular?

The Decline of “Complete My Album” in iTunes

I thought that the inclusion of iTunes Match would bump up the accuracy of another of iTunes' features - "Complete My Album." However, that does not seem to have happened.

A good example is the track "The Lifting" by R.E.M. from their album Reveal. This is a track I originally bought on the CD, ripped to iTunes myself, and which was later matched by iTunes Match.

Yet…

iTunes

iTunes knows I have this track. It's in its own Match database. Yet it asks me to buy it - and every other track on the album - to "complete my album"?

And it does this for a hundred other albums as well, making "Complete My Album" not only a joke, but one that can have you purchasing duplicate song and wasting your money if you are too lazy to check whether you actually own the song already.
