NASA released a new version of the Deep Field image day before yesterday, now with even more detail. From the caption:

"The image covers an area less than a tenth of the width of the full Moon, making it just a 30 millionth of the whole sky. Yet even in this tiny fraction of the sky, the long exposure reveals about 5500 galaxies, some of them so distant that we see them when the Universe was less than 5% of its current age."

Space is so awesome.

Best headline I've ever seen for a phone review. The review itself is pretty helpful, too!

I always preferred Winnie-the-Pooh anyway.

Gizmodo got a hold of an Apple Genius training manual, which turns out to be kind of a creepy document. My favorite part is the subtle redirection Apple uses to correct mistaken customers. Giz described it as verbal "judo," which seems pretty accurate.

How did I not know about this??

Every so often I hear people asking about why the government funds NASA (in other words, "Why are we putting robots in space when we need to focus on creating jobs here on earth?"). This site does a pretty good job of explaining why: because throwing science as far forward as we can turns out to have some pretty concrete terrestrial benefits, as well.

Guys: can we quit it with the frivolous lawsuits? I hate the idea that Apple and Samsung have to use their money to fight these dumb legal battles, rather than funneling it toward R&D.

Nexus Q first look is up. I'd love to get my hands on one of these at some point. $299 is pretty steep, but it'd be cheaper to hook a Q right up to bookshelf speakers than to buy an A/V receiver.

Ooh, pretty excited for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Baked-in predictive keyboard, useful notifications, Google Now keeping me from being late for things ... can't wait. Not sure how I feel about the Nexus 7 tablet, though. How is it different from a Kindle Fire?
