Thomas Dullien of Google’s Project Zero on why security suffers because it’s actually cheaper to build more complex things (i.e. ship some piece of hardware with a general purpose processor and define features in software instead of using a purpose-built chip).
An interesting talk about Lego CAD with some glimpses into “after market” Lego. 😀

A great analysis of the level of detail that went into the camera logic of Super Mario World.
