I'm currently running Windows 10 Technical Preview and really enjoying the experience on my Surface Pro 3. I really do hope that Continuum makes it into the final build of Windows 10. I think it would allow Surface Owners and other Windows tablet users to have the best of both worlds

Over the past few years Google has been testing its self driving cars. Since then, the discussion has been heated both ways (For and Against) self driving car technology. This is my argument on why we need to continue to invest and research to develop this technology and for Governments to start regulating and taking this as a serious subject.

Sub-Saharan Africa (most Africa) will add more renewable energy projects in 2014 than it has in the previous 14 years (2000-2013)http://about.bnef.com/press-releases/south-africa-ethiopia-kenya-lead-renewables-spurt-africa/

In Africa, solar and wind are cheaper than fossil fuels. Wind is cheaper than fossil fuels in most of the world already. Africa will become industrialized without polluting coal-oil-gas.  This will help them to build a distributed renewable energy network able to power all cities and also electric cars, trains, planes, etc


some reasons for buying your next car electric:

1.  help humanity since you no longer generate carcinogenic exhaust, otherwise known as smog, which kills millions of people each year ► http://goo.gl/jDj0hI and leads to lower IQ ► http://goo.gl/alNQIk and autism ► http://goo.gl/66nqwr.  

2.  save lives since you reduce heart attacks caused by traffic noise ►  http://goo.gl/Fuhvn.   Electric cars are much quieter.

3.   save humanity from oil wars that destroy the environment and kill countless civilians.  Iraq war trillions could have powered all US with solar/wind ► http://goo.gl/ZqN47.  

4.  you no longer have to change oil or spark plugs; no more smog check either; electric cars have 60% less parts, so you will go for repairs much less.  Combustion engines are noisy and only 15% efficient;  electric motors are 90% efficient. 

5.  bring the end of gas stations that poison the water wells with MTBE or other compounds leading to billions of dollars wasted in cleaning up the well water (example:  $0.4 billion settlement ► http://goo.gl/eKasZD)

6.  save money as you spend 4 times less money on fuel, since electricity is 4 times cheaper than gasoline as a fuel.  If you have enough solar panels,  you get free CLEAN fuel for life, since you charge at home and utilities pay you for energy you put on the grid.  Likewise, Tesla Motors offers free solar ☼ charging for lifeTesla Motors Supercharger Event?  

7.  save money for noble purposes because electric cars are cheaper than many oil cars after the federal and state rebates:  in Colorado, you can buy a Nissan Leaf for only 15, 000, while in most other states for 18-21, 000.  A Smart EV costs only $12, 000 in Colorado, see http://smartusa.com.  Mitsubishi i-MieV is only $13, 000 in California and $10, 000 in Colorado ► http://www.evworld.com/news.cfm?rssid=31881

8.  electric car batteries and solar panels are far greener than alternatives.  Battery recycling for today's oil car lead batteries is happening at a 97% rate globally. It will be even better for the far safer lithium car batteries.   Lithium Ion batteries are classified by the federal government as non-hazardous waste.  Lithium ion batteries are made from nontoxic lithium carbonate (used in ovenware), nontoxic cobalt oxide (in pottery glaze), nontoxic graphite (in pencils), and a polymer (plastic) membrane. The most toxic components are the electrolyte and lithium cobalt oxide, neither of which are persistent in the environment and both of which are increasingly being replaced by safer compounds.  Wang Chuan-Fu, CEO of BYD, demonstrated the safety of the electrolyte in their lithium ion batteries by drinking it. Zero Motorcycles founder Neal Saiki said that the Lithium Ion batteries they use are safe to eat

Solar is way better than coal, oil or natural gas which spew 100-1000 times more carcinogens in the environment per unit of energy produced, besides far more CO2.  How long does a solar panel system have to operate to recover the energy used for making the panel? Energy payback for rooftop panels is 1-4 years depending on type.   Assuming a life of 30 years for a panel, that means that most energy produced will be free from pollution of any sort ► http://www.nrel.gov/docs/fy04osti/35489.pdf.   

9.  save time, thus money, since you are allowed to use the carpool lanes to avoid traffic if you drive an electric car, in many countries, even if there is only 1 person in the car.

A former mechanic, and now auto writer for Canada’s Globe & Mail, drove Model S from San Diego to Whistler. "Despite my emotional connection to gas-powered cars," he writes, "I realize that the age of internal combustion will come to an end."
Globe Drive writer Peter Cheney travelled up the west coast of North America in a Model S, powered by nothing but electricity

I believe its part science, part gut feeling.
 
"Design isn't a science. Just move things around until it feels right." Do you agree?
This fantastic short cartoon won't teach you everything you need to be a designer, but it's a great start.
