Samsung Electronics expected to show best profits in nearly three years
Samsung Electronics Co Ltd is likely to forecast its best quarterly profit in nearly three years on Friday, analysts said, with robust memory chip sales easing the pain of the costly failure of a flagship smartphone.

Making an Arduino-based CNC plotter out of a DVD player is as easy as 1, 2, what’s Arduino again?
 Once, long ago when magazines still existed, I bought a copy of Popular Mechanics. Inside was a guide on how to build a robotic lawnmower.
