[@BYTES1GHz](https://twitter.com/BYTES1GHz) is a single serving of undigested tech for the unfocused and/or unconcerned. Don't be disappoint. Like. Enjoy. #WhutItDo: JK. No bananas.

Apparently they could see what the little buddies were planning to do before they even did it! #FutureOfStuff: Now, I'm no Brain Wizard, but if you can see something coming, chances are you can catch it.
