What we really have to ask ourselves is, what is the screen for? What is its purpose? And for us, it’s just another element that chewed through a lot of power. Everybody’s got a smartphone, tablet or PC nowadays, and they are built with very, very high definition screens.
[There are] two things happening here – one is with the surprise or delight of not actually viewing the subject matter you’re taking photos of, and the other is transferring via Bluetooth to your smartphone, to your tablet, and viewing photos that way.
Here’s a video that shows the camera as well as his explanation.
This is the most amazing visual website I have seen this year, and the past year, and the year before that. You are about to spend at least an hour playing around with this website and making gallery worthy art in moments.
So before clicking, ask yourself if you really have spare time. Otherwise whatever it is you are doing is going to get placed on hold for a while. Sorry, dinner’s going to have to wait!
An implication of Facebook’s most recent update (which has been there for a few months now) is that you know when your friends read your message. How annoying is that?
Personally, that should be none of their business. Let’s say you read it and intend to reply to it later for whatever reason, some people probably feel they are being ignored. There are obviously a thousand reasons you can think of why it shouldn’t be there. No matter what, it shouldn’t be there to begin with. It probably causes more problems than it fixes.
There are a few ways to circumvent this.
Method 1 - Extensions :
There’s an extension in Chrome that allows you to stop them from seeing when you’ve read the message.
So if it works for you, enjoy! If not, read further.
Method 2 - Hovering over your message:
For Safari users, you can hover over the message without clicking on it to bring up the full message. So you can read it without having to click on it. It won’t notify the recipient that you’ve read it.
The European Union just invested $1.35 Billion to research graphene’s use. This isn’t a regular fund, this is insane.
So what is it? It’s the ‘world’s strongest material’ that is also exceptionally thin, and an unbelievable conductor of heat and electricity.
So what, right? Wrong.
“Like iron or plastic or silicon, a lot of materials scientists think graphene is going to be one of those things that quite literally launches an era, like the Industrial Revolution or the Digital Age.”
It will be in everything from light and strong cameras, computers, cars, and so much more.
“Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, first made graphene in 2004 at the University of Manchester, later winning them the Nobel Prize in Physics.”
This will be coming down the pipeline in 10 years. It’s going to happen.

A lot of people are upgrading to Windows 8. The biggest problem for many people was that they took out the start menu, and instead they now have a screen that contains panels.
To me, that was unnecessary I don’t want to switch to a new screen when I want to efficiently get somewhere. The start menu had that functionality that I wanted. If it’s meant to be better and improved upon, they are going to need to think of a better way. This was not it and now people want the start menu back.
