Doctor Who Weeping Angel's came from real paradox known as Quantum Zeno Efftec???

Image
I didn't know this until I watched DNews. After seeing the new episode from the new series of Doctor Who today, DNews did a little story about Technology that already exist from Doctor who. Most of them were just silly stuff, but what caught my attention was the concept of the Weeping Angel. 

Uranium is radioactive and decays like it should do. If left unattended, it will decay as per expected. However if you watch it it does not. This is known as a Quantum Zeno. Apparently the Weeping Angel's came from this known phenomenon.

With April fools only 2 days away, I wonder what Google will do for 2013? I hope it will be as entertaining as last year. My favourite was Google Maps, 8-bit for the NES :)



Can this solve world hunger?

Pretty interesting way to consume food. Theoretically you could mix up all the chemicals and nutrients you need to keep you alive. It could be one way to solve the growing food shortages that we keep hearing about or solve world hunger...


Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian calls out 'fellow geeks' for ostracizing, sexist behavior

R.I.P Google Reader... Long Live Google Currents

Image
There was a lot of uproar when Google decided to kill Google Reader. At the time I thought it was a bad move because a lot of people still use it to get their news and updates on topics. I know people like +Lauren Weinstein is a heavy user of Reader and there are petitions out there to keep it.

I haven’t used Google Reader for a couple of years now, so I decided to go back and see why I haven’t. What I notice was that the interface what not great and most importantly I already had a replacement. Flipboard.

Flipboard can consume RSS feeds, but more importantly it looks modern. It feels like I am reading a magazine or a newspaper. That is what attracted to me to it and it fits my needs. But what Flipboard also offers is a way for Content providers to dictate what they want to promote, and therefore use the Flipboard API and provide an even richer experience.

For my needs that is what I want as I am not someone who needs to be informed on every single story. But I know people are die hard R…

Whoa, Google killing reader

I personally don't use it too much but there are a lot who do. Quite surprised by this move Google. Lauren Weinstein originally shared this post: Google Reader is being shut down 1 July.  I use it constantly so this is seriously painful to me.  Recommendations for alternatives with good desktop and Android capabilities would be appreciated.  Nothing fancy, just the basic capabilities to plow through lots of headlines and summaries quickly. Thanks. (I can't say the handwriting hasn't been on the wall for some time now.) A second spring of cleaning » We're living in a new kind of computing environment.
