Two JavaScript Books

In addition to the now quite famous "JavaScript: The Good Parts" by Douglas Crockford check out the following books that discuss JavaScript from a Functional Programming view point:

  1. "Functional JavaScript" by MichaelFogus.  You will need to understand the Underscore JavaScript Library (http://underscorejs.org/) since the book heavily uses that.
  2. "JavaScript Allongé" by Reginald Braithwaite.

 “Internet of Things” has started giving me the willies!


A luxury toilet controlled by a smartphone app is vulnerable to attack, according to security experts.


Retailing for up to $5,686 (£3,821), the Satis toilet includes automatic flushing, bidet spray, music and fragrance release.


The toilet, manufactured by Japanese firm Lixil, is controlled via an Android app called My Satis.
