Is Yahoo trying to buy Tumblr?
According to reports, Yahoo could be preparing to offer up to $1 billion for Tumblr.
Here’s hoping that deal doesn’t go through, I used to love Flickr until Yahoo took it over (Related, this is a great read on that subject). Delicious was good before Yahoo took it over too… And Geocities… And probably many of these 76 companies. Yahoo just shouldn’t have nice things!
For some terrible reason I still have a yahoo mail account, and all I have to say is I hope this doesn’t happen, because they have way too much money to suck so badly. Like I’ve said, linear minds in a new creative world, they’re doomed.
The United Space Alliance has decided to stop using all Windows computers aboard the ISS, in favour of Linux — to ensure it’s systems are “stable and reliable”. Ouch.
The decision will see “dozens of laptops” change from running Windows XP to Debian 6, reports Extreme Tech. There are…
The fear is not actually not reaching 100 miles per hour,” Mr. Obree said. “The fear is being 90, in a chair, in an old folks’ home, saying ‘I should have gone for that.’
There are very many solar angle generators online that supply you with “azimuth angle” and “declination” but sometimes just seeing it is all you need, and this site figured that out. They calculate Winter, Spring/Fall, and Summer angles plus there’s a graphic to give you instant satisfaction of what the tilt will actually look like.
Climate “Skeptics” subreddit doesn’t have real skeptics
I went there looking for data to challenge my understanding of global warming.
What I found was a bunch of ignorant people that were quick to shoot anything liberal or alternative down, especially anything related to the changes we must make due to climate change.
It makes me incredibly sad inside to see how they justify POURING man-made crap into the atmosphere without consequences.
There were many debates on CO2 and whether it’s harmful at all: NOT ONE SINGLE DETAIL ABOUT CO2 MATTERS BECAUSE THIS AMOUNT WOULDN’T BE HERE WITHOUT HUMANS AND THAT’S THE POINT.
I saw paragraphs and paragraphs of arguments over CO2 and natural weather change, and they all debate BS while the truth remains that the earth wasn’t designed for the use it’s getting from us.
If you can’t see that the industrial age continually stripping the planet of resources is BAD, then I hope you don’t reproduce, or even vote.
This is probably what Microsoft’s version of Google Glass will end up looking like.
If Apple competed their version wouldn’t even come with a camera. Because, without a camera then people rush to buy the next model that DOES include a low-resolution camera… And if you want a high-res camera you’ll have to buy the model after that one.
Yep, that’s realistic. If Apple made “Glass” then it would take 3 product releases for them to make a decent product that’s ACTUALLY worth buying…
The plot is only an additional reason to see Iron Man 3, because tonight it earns my cash for the simple joy of seeing anything and everything related to tech and engineering.
Realistic? Doesn’t matter, its purpose is to entertain, and I’ll let it. After I’ve received my moneys worth I’ll decide if his hud has way too much info on it again, etc.
Just last week, Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt, whose company owns YouTube, declared that the video-sharing website had already overtaken traditional television as the most popular form of visual entertainment.
As noted in Ad Age recently, Reddit closed out 2012 with more than 37 billion page views and 400 million unique visitors.
Eight months ago, Cody Wilson set out to create the world’s first entirely 3D-printable handgun. Now he has. Early next week, Wilson, a 25-year-old University of Texas law student and founder of the non-profit group Defense Distributed, plans to release the 3D-printable CAD files for a gun he calls “the Liberator,” pictured in its initial form above. He’s agreed to let me document the process of the gun’s creation, so long as I don’t publish details of its mechanics or its testing until it’s been proven to work reliably and the file has been uploaded to Defense Distributed’s online collection of printable gun blueprints at Defcad.org.

Why are people trying to bring back film, I love old cameras, but this film craze is insane. Or, I guess these kids don’t develop and print their own film, they just take it somewhere, so they like it more… All I remember was shaking canisters of film in the dark and waiting for prints to dry.
I’ll always have a soft spot for kodak ektachrome 100 prints, but thank Sagan for digital.
