I think this is pretty cool.  I can imagine many applications--both in the USA and abroad!
The Brooklyn-based startup is offering a solution for off-the-grid travelers who need low-cost connectivity for their smartphone -- and it doesn't rely on satellites.

I recently ran across this mathematical treatment on how to soft-boil an egg.    Kind of amusing!

My uncle recently ran across videos about the recent Mars Opportunity/Spirt landings.   That made me remember the Mars Curiosity landing.  Here are a few  cool videos about that Mars landing in 2012:

Thanks to Jonathan for an extraordinary visit to our classroom -- a video conference.  It was an awesome introduction to landings.

#Joomla component developers:  if you are frustrated that the custom action rules in your 'access.xml' file are all 'Denied' (not set) by default, there is a fix.  I've submitted a patch for Joomla that will allow you to easily indicate what groups you want to have permissions by default for your custom rules in the component's 'access.xml' file.

Please test my latest github pull request for a fix to this issue! (this pull request is for Joomla 3.1; for 2.5 used pull request 976):

          https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/pull/975

If you prefer patch files, see the same item on Joomlacode:

          http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla/tracker/?action=TrackerItemEdit&tracker_item_id=30550

All we need is a few testers reporting success on github to get this included in Joomla!

Thanks Eric!  I was watching the HHC video where you almost got started putting on the decals when the video cut off.  It was great to see this demo.  Even though I've done one myself, I learned several things about how to do it right!

This is a cool story in Congo (DRC).    Note that the robot was designed by a female Congolese engineer!   Hopeful signs in #Congo!
A hulking, solar-powered robot tells cars and pedestrians where to go in Congo.

Just received my new HP Prime Graphing Calculator!

I've been fiddling with it, figuring out how it works.  It does so much that it is going to take a while to figure out.   I like the touch interface (which seems well integrated) and the programming language (somewhere between Basic and Modula-2).  Very cool!

I suspect the cuts at HP are affecting their Calculator division; there are no user manuals to download on their regular support site.  Hopefully they will figure that out soon.

Enjoyed Oblivion today! Nice to see some real Sci-Fi (without other genres thrown in). Plot was a little predictable and borrowed fom other Sci-Fi mobies but it was fun!

Just submitted #Joomla pull request that lets components set the default ACL permissions for their custom actions.
