Aspiring scientists from the Zurich School of Applied Sciences have built a video simulation that displays the flight path of every commercial flight in the world over a 24-hour period. There isn't much of an application for it, but it sure is cool to look at.

 
Simpson's Apple Lampoon Print
Monday, 01 December 2008 11:38

Though The Simpsons has a history of satirizing tech culture, and even Apple specifically, last night's episode felt like it was making up for a bit of lost time. It's not just iPods and iMacs getting reprefixed and animated: it's Apple Stores, the G4 Cube, past and present fanboys, vintage advertising and even Steve Jobs himself. Even if Groening and co. aren't exactly breaking new ground here (though they seem to reserve some special venom for Mr. Jobs), there are more than a few great lines buried in the sketch.

Dude, Where's My Toolbag? Print
Wednesday, 26 November 2008 07:24

 

Veteran spacewalker and Endeavor astronaut Heide Stefanyshyn-Piper lost her grip on the backpack-sized bag on Nov. 18 while cleaning up a mess from a leaking grease gun.

Once the tool bag floated away, some thought they'd seen the end of it. Not quite. A satellite tracker at Spaceweather.com now is monitoring both the space station and the tool bag.

After sunset on Nov. 22, Edward Light, using 10 x 50 binoculars, spotted the bag in space while he scanned the sky from his backyard in Lakewood, N.J., Spaceweather.com reported. On the same night, Keven Fetter of Brockville, Ontario, video-recorded the bag as it passed by the star Eta Pisces in the constellation Pisces.

The satellite tracker predicts the tool bag will make a series of passes over Europe this week. Then, late next week, the tool bag is expected to reappear in the evening skies of North America, and should be visible through binoculars a few minutes ahead of the ISS.

Vista Folder Type Selection Print
Thursday, 02 October 2008 09:11

Problem: By default Vista will choose the view of your folder by its contents. Although it's mostly acceptable there are a few folders that behavior is very annoying for me. I have a download folder that is constantly resetting to 'Pictures and Music' or the 'Music Detail' view.

Fix: Although I could not find a way to lock one folder down, I did find a way to disable automatic folder template type selection completely.

Another fun and addictive flash game, although not quite as good as Gravity Pods for me.

Earlier this evening Bill Gates gave his final Microsoft keynote at the 2008 CES show in Las Vegas. Throughout the keynote he made many references to what he will do with his free time once he retires from day to day operations at Microsoft. It turns out Bill has big plans in addition to his foundation after all. The cameos were top notch.

 

 
Bed Jump: Making Hotels Fun Again Print
Sunday, 06 January 2008 21:54

 

I would have never thought of this. Bed Jump is a site were people can share pictures of themselves jumping on hotel beds. The photos are usually in mid-air and some are quite funny. I think I got to the fourth page before I made myself stop.
