Questions/Speculation  - 
 
Has anyone else had a problem recently with the camera app on Glass?  For reasons beyond my kin, my Glass will sometimes (seemingly when I really need it) start to take a picture, the review frame sliding out into view, but then it "hangs".  No pictures, no anything.  When I tap or slide the interface, it gives me that familiar "double-blip" telling me "it can't do that right now".  It responds to nothing short of a reboot after that.  Then it acts normally for a while.

Occurs most often during a multiple-image shoot, like when I'm cruising down the block and a Maserati pulls up, moves by.  Don't know what to think about this...

I had that happen once like a year ago, but not since then.  I use the camera quite a bit, including multiple-image shoots.  Wish I knew why so I could help!

This reminds me of one of +Steven Blood's more creative methods of launching vehicles into orbit - but it's nice to see other people thinking out of the box as well.
 

The Falkirk Wheel is a rotating boat lift in Scotland, UK. It connects the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal. The difference in height of the two canals at the wheel is 24 metres (79 ft), roughly equivalent to the height of an eight-storey building. But the Union Canal is 11m higher than the aqueduct which meets the wheel, and boats must pass through a pair of locks to descend from this canal onto the aqueduct at the top of the wheel. Wiki ► www.goo.gl/9G566

Yup.  Missed an opportunity.  But maybe I can still make a difference.  Still, I'm as proud as General Mitchell that the Air Force has discovered yet another battlefield (that has routinely been ignored) in which to exert some superiority.  Whether or not you agree, it makes sense on so many primal levels...
 
The U.S. military can’t stop talking about hacking into enemies' networks.

This pretty much sums it up - I've never seen it stated more effectively.  (At least that's how it feels, some days...)

Wow!  Our vision was so clear back then!  This is terrifically cool...

Probably not the best way to "bogart" a job.  Still, it's a method I've never tried.  I must remember to add it to my "funny papers" regarding Job Hunting.  I'm not sure this guy understands how basic society works, but his communication skills are um impressive...

This reminds me, it's about time to start making some noise about a possible "Daddy Derby".  Used to be a fun after-the-race race to keep both the Daddys and their Cub Scouts riveted to their seats.

I really think we oughta' get this party started, and pretty soon, too.  Just sayin'...

Way to go Wake Forest!  This ('Power Fabric') is a product of WFU's Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials - local to those of us in Winston-Salem!  Simply too cool for words...    ...wish the article was written by someone who spoke English as their first language, though...
 
The 'Power Fabric' That Could Charge Your Phone Whenever You Hold It

According to DailyMail a graduate school student have developed a Power felt which converts wasted body heat into electric current that could be used to charge mobile phones. 

The Power felt can also be used to provide electricity to a radio or a torch in case of an emergency. 

Mind=Blown?

Never be intimidated!  Yes!  This is justice, at a different level.  Bet this causes a change in the way "payment contracts" are handled...
 
Samsung Pays Apple $1 Billion Sending 30 Trucks Full of 5 Cents Coins

This morning more than 30 trucks filled with 5-cent coins arrived at Apple’s headquarters in California. Initially,  the security company that protects the facility said the trucks were in the wrong place, but minutes later, Tim Cook (Apple CEO) received a call from Samsung CEO explaining that  they will pay $1 billion dollars for the fine recently ruled against the South Korean company in this way.

the funny part is that the signed document does not specify a single payment method, so Samsung is entitled to send the creators of the iPhone their billion dollars in the way they deem best. 

This dirty but genius geek troll play is a new headache to Apple executives as they will need to put in long hours counting all that money, to check if it is all there and to try to deposit it crossing fingers to hope a bank will accept all the coins.

Lee Kun-hee, Chairman of Samsung Electronics, told the media that his company is not going to be intimidated by a group of “geeks with style” and that if they want to play dirty, they also know how to do it.

You can use your coins to buy refreshments at the little machine for life or melt the coins to make computers, that’s not my problem, I already paid them and fulfilled the law.

A total of 20 billion coins, delivery hope to finish this week.

Let’s see how Apple will respond to this.

Uncle Marty and I came to this conclusion long ago - I'm glad to see the mainstream getting with the program - we just knew that when you applied voltage to the motors , paralleling the front wheels on one bus and the rear wheels on the other bus, that simple resistance balanced the power output so we didn't end up dragging one wheel or another when the car went through a turn - back in 1984 our all-wheel-drive technology hadn't yet figured that out, mechanically - so AWD cars tended to be harder on tires than other 4WD solutions...

We were just looking at making the car light and "nimble".  And so we did.  It just needed lots of refinement, and we couldn't see making it sale-able at the time.  So we just sat on it, moved on...

And this is why I may never release my patented inventions: The Courts (and all of the lawyers therein) somehow missed "common sense" as a possible deterrent from doing stupid things.  Hence the court case...

When it's time to get things done...
Introduction
With too many interests to follow, I find that the mixture of ADHD and OC make it difficult to stay with any one career for long without it branching out into several different careers at once. I've actually had to learn to say "No" when a manager/vice president/ranking company officer comes up to me and says "Hey, Gene, could you take a look at this..." and attempts to add a new responsibility to my corporate queue. When I don't say "No", I end up with more responsibility than I can handle... ...and that always bodes ill for the next series of reviews, let me assure you. But all in all, I still want to help, to make our company the best it can be. I just don't have the time (or all of the different bodies) required to make it happen.

Too much knowledge can be a bad thing... :D
