The view of Andromeda from Earth when it starts colliding with the Milky Way in 3.75 billion years.
 
As seen on #Cosmos: The next major cosmic event to affect our galaxy, sun, and solar system: the titanic collision of our Milky Way galaxy with the neighboring Andromeda galaxy. The Milky Way is destined to get a major makeover during the encounter, which is predicted to happen four billion years from now. It is likely the sun will be flung into a new region of our galaxy, but our Earth and solar system are in no danger of being destroyed.

This illustration shows a stage in the predicted merger between our Milky Way galaxy and the neighboring Andromeda galaxy, as it will unfold over the next several billion years. In this image, representing Earth's night sky in 3.75 billion years, Andromeda (left) fills the field of view and begins to distort the Milky Way with tidal pull.

Yikes! I was trying to figure out why my new MacBook Air wasn't getting anywhere close to the battery life it was supposed to. Turns out Dropbox is to blame. Hope they fix this soon.
Last month Apple revealed new models of its 11 and 13-inch MacBook Air laptops for 2013. The biggest draw of the new machines was the switch to Intel’s Haswell processors and the promise [...]

Someone told me
It's all happening at the zoo.
I do believe it,

For our anniversary Kimberly got us a class through Washington Photo Safari. We spent Sunday with a professional photographer and 3 others touring Harpers Ferry and getting tips, sharing experiences, and taking great pictures. Definitely the best anniversary gift I could have asked for!

Good to see Microsoft finally making a commitment to indie games with the Xbox One!
 
Microsoft said it will allow indie game creators to self-publish their content on the upcoming Xbox One console, a dramatic departure from its current policy on the Xbox 360.
