In a Breathtaking First, NASA’s Voyager 1 Exits the Solar System
As the solar system’s edge grew tantalizingly close, NASA asked the Voyager scientists to increase the amount of data collection. The problem: the 8-track data recorders from 1977 were not exactly bursting with extra space. Could Ms. Dodd even find anyone who specialized in that piece of technology and could coax it to record more?
And Then Steve Said, ‘Let There Be an iPhone’
A must read for Apple fans.
Jobs wanted the demo phones he would use onstage to have their screens mirrored on the big screen behind him. To show a gadget on a big screen, most companies just point a video camera at it, but that was unacceptable to Jobs. The audience would see his finger on the iPhone screen, which would mar the look of his presentation. So he had Apple engineers spend weeks fitting extra circuit boards and video cables onto the backs of the iPhones he would have onstage.

Handy, if you remember that you have it installed.
Good idea for an iPhone app. Kind of sort of in-line with my very very rough mobile based savings site, movetosavin.gs
Tom Papa Live in New York City (Netflix Watch Instantly)
Tom Papa is hilarious. You’ll agree. Side note: I just now noticed that Rob Zombie directed this. Odd.
My house has eight smoke detectors. The backup 9volt batteries that they use all die around the same time, letting out a loud chirp every single minute. My solution, add an eight pack to Amazon Subscribe and Save, and change them all when they show up at your door. No more chirping. They’re a bit cheaper than in-store to boot.
Atlanta is a trendy pick to emerge out of the NFC this year and while the Falcons will be better, I don’t see their defense being strong enough to carry them too far. Atlanta’s defense has been worse than average the last few seasons and last wholesale nfl jerseys
year’s strength of stopping the run (4.1 ypr allowed to teams that would average 4.5 ypr against an average team) will not be as much of a strength without suspended run stuffing DT Jonathan Babineaux. The pass defense was worse than it should have been due to injury, but they were below average even when they were healthy and adding CB Dunta Robinson probably won’t be enough to get them to be better than average. I’ll rate the Falcons’ defense as slightly below average heading into this season, but the offense will probably be improved. Quarterback Matt Ryan suffered a bit of a sophomore slump last season (6.0 yppp) after wholesale nfl jerseys
a great rookie campaign (7.4 yards per pass play), but Ryan did face a much tougher schedule of pass defenses last season (those teams would combine to allow 5.9 cheap football jerseys china
yppp to an average QB) and his performance should fall somewhere in between the great 2008 and mediocre 2009 numbers. The rushing attack also regressed into mediocrity last season as top running back Michael Turner http://www.footballjerseysuppliers.com
and backup Jerious Norwood suffered through injuries, but Turner and Norwood should produce better than average rushing numbers in 2010 and the offense overall should go from average to about 0.5 wholesale jerseys china

carts for toilets? Actually, this, like so many other hazardous shopping experiences, is because of children. They have a habit of sticking their hands everywhere, and as such they tend to carry trace amounts of fecal matter among other things about their person at all times. Imagine that poop encrusted toddler sitting in your shopping cart before you got hold of it, just smearing his hands on everything, as kids are wont to do. Now imagine 10,000 kids in the cart, pulling a nonstop poop smearing orgy, and you get a basic idea of the public toilet that you’re using to store your fresh produce.”On the plus side, all of our feces is organic and locally shat.”By the time he was 16, his Fun Forces numbered over 600. Relations between Peter and Sophia broke down when Sophia demanded that Peter present himself at the Kremlin. Peter refused, and a tense standoff ensued between the Streltsy, Russia’s regular military, and Peter’s Fun Forces. In 1689, Peter marched the Fun Forces into Moscow. True to their name, the Fun Forces were there to have a grand old time: They seized control from Sophia, and Peter shipped his sister to a convent and had the bodies of her supporters hanged outside her window. That’s what “a grand old time” is in Russia.
