ROYGBIV doesn't come close to describing the full spectrum of color that humans can perceive. So researchers came up with a better way to identify the tiniest changes in hue.

This looks interesting... book rental model, by the company Oyster.
Oyster, the subscription e-book service, says it is opening up a retail component and has the Big Five publishers on board. The move sets up Oyster to challenge Amazon.

Better light and more energy efficient

TV is doomed... teaser quote:
*I can watch whatever I want and save more than $2,000 a year at the same time.

The old-school television model is doomed. Content producers and distributors better come up to speed quickly on the new world order or they will be decimated by the price/performance benefit of the now available substitute solutions.

Used the new material design Contacts for GMAIL for the first time today. Very nice. I had to go to the old version to import since that isn't there yet. But layout is nice and merging dups is hugely improved.

Nice job!
