Many doctoral students fail to earn their PhDs because they never finish their dissertations. They complete their coursework, pass their qualifying exams, and do all of their research, but writing the thesis proves an insurmountable barrier. Why does the…

These amazing little traffic lights that let you play PONG with the person waiting on the other side of the street were officially installed this week in a German town. See more at the link.

Ten reasons why typewriters are better than computers:

"Typewriters never crash, never need software updates, do not become obsolete every four years, and require no backing up.

Because manual typewriters require no electricity, they’re environmentally friendly.

You can work in full sunlight, and not have to worry about the glare on your screen.

You can spill your drink on the keyboard and nothing terrible will happen to your typewriter.

Typewriters have unlimited battery life, and never overheat.

If something goes wrong with your typewriter, a screwdriver and some WD-40 are usually all you need for the repair.

Typewriters give your fingers a good workout, so it kind of feels like exercise.

Your eyes never hurt from staring too long at your typewriter.

When you write on a typewriter, your friends, family, and colleagues can all hear that you’re working.

You can misspell words and use bad grammar without your word processing program constantly judging you.

Typewriters encourage your writing by providing a celebratory ding at the end of each line written"

Will we ever read at superspeed? What our brain can and can't handle> http://bbc.in/1ugRTju
Some companies promise that they can make us all read at five times the speed. But given what we know about the brain, what’s realistically possible?
