“Stunning”,” spectacular”, “jaw-dropping”, “do want”…. none of these come close to describing this phone.

Unfortunately, “pipe dream”, “concept”, “expensive” and “not really doable with today’s technology” also apply.  Maybe in 18 months?

This IS the phone you want.

Filed under, “DO WANT”.

“The hardware is a Freescale i.MX25 running at 400Mhz with 128Mb RAM, the display has a resolution of 480×800 and the application is being rendered completely via software, since there was no hardware acceleration available.”

Must… resist…

Ah, who am I kidding, I want this, and so do you.

“An experimental Intel chip shows the feasibility of building processors with 1,000 cores, an Intel researcher has asserted.

The architecture for the Intel 48-core Single Chip Cloud Computer (SCC) processor is “arbitrarily scalable,” said Intel researcher Timothy Mattson, during a talk at the Supercomputer 2010 conference being held this week in New Orleans.”

I tweeted about graphene a while ago.  The backstory on it is here:

Now, someone figured out you can make graphene from sugar:

Soooo… doing the math, we have:

Sugar + Science = Graphene

Graphene + More Science = 100 GHz CPU’s

100 GHz CPU’s = Awesomesauce!

Do want.

It looks like Facebook is going to release a “Modern Messaging System”. Could this replace Gmail and other Email Clients?

I doubt it. Reading up on this, it actually seems like a good idea. It also seemed like a good idea when Google thought of it back in 2009 :P . It is a centralized hub for all commumications since it incorporates email, SMS, maybe VoIP in the future and of course Facebook messages. View full article »

I love the idea of taking traditional models and ideas and just wrecking them completely, then starting over in a way that most people will look at and say, “You can’t do that!  It flies in the face of tradition!  It goes against the grain!  That’s not how everyone else does it!”.

Of course, it’s even better when it works…

This looks pretty promising; work your butt off for 30 minutes, then go do something completely non-work related for 30 minutes.  The theory is, you’ll end up crazy productive and focused for the 30 minutes that you’re working, a) because you have tight deadline, and b) because you’ve spent 30 minutes on non-work stuff, you’re clear-headed when you do the 30 minute “work drive”.

The original author explains it much better than I can.
