I'm a great believer of "If you want something done right, do it yourself." For a long time, I'd always wanted an iPhone app that would calculate the tip when I'm at a restaurant, have the ability to round up the total or the tip amount, support Today Widget so I don't have to unlock my phone while using it, and be flat designed.

A few weeks ago, I knew nothing about iOS development. I downloaded Xcode and started messing around with it. I now have an iOS app that's on the App Store. It does everything I want, and it's free.

In the next iteration of the app, I want the ability to take a picture of the bill, and have the app calculate the tip without me having to punch in the bill total.

App can be downloaded from the App Store, or you can search for "Just The Tip."

You are given two eggs, and access to a 100-storey building. Both eggs are identical. The aim is to find out the highest floor from which an egg will not break when dropped out of a window from that floor.

The question is: What strategy should you adopt to minimize the number egg drops it takes to find the solution?.

“Slim by Chocolate!” the headlines blared. A team of German researchers had found that people on a low-carb diet lost weight 10 percent faster if they ate a chocolate bar every day. It made the front page of Bild, Europe’s largest daily newspaper, just beneath their update about the Germanwings crash. From there, it ricocheted around the internet and beyond, making news in more than 20 countries and half a dozen languages. It was discussed on tel...
