"Sue’s Skull. The largest and most complete skeleton of T. rex, named SUE after its discoverer, sported a large skull, measuring some 3.3 feet (1 m) across at the back and 5 feet (1.5 m) long.”
"Always reblog South Dakotans."
Go South Dakota and Sue is currently being shown off at the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls, South Dakota until January 5.
“20 years later, Jurassic Park still feels like the quintessential special-effects movie. Sorry, Howard The Duck.”
The first time the T-Rex is introduced is probably one of the best scenes in cinematic history. Also, I might be a little bias because Jurassic Park is my favorite movie.
Well, what can I say… The Future is here. This is one of the most amazing artifacts from the future I’ve seen in a long time.
Think about the potential and what you can do with it when they increase the resolution and the strength of the blocks (carbon composites, graphene… whatever). I definitely share the astonishment of Kevin Kelly:
Wow, it’s the beginning of….. something in our future. There must be a science fiction name for a full body controlled virtually. It’s a demo of….
Be sure to watch the video:
Whaaaaaaaatttt?!?!?!? *my mouth drops to the floor* … This is amazing!
"Ever wonder why you can’t get a Coke at Taco Bell? It’s because Yum! Brands was created as a spin-off of Pepsi—and has a lifetime contract with the soda-maker. Unilever produces everything from Dove soap to Klondike bars. Nestle has a big stake in L’Oreal, which features everything from cosmetics to Diesel designer jeans."
Didn’t realize how much power that some of these brands. It’s kind of scary to know that Nestle, P&G, Johnson & Johnson, Kraft, and many more have their hands in some many things that influence us daily.
This might be “the” next revolutionary thing in mobile to happen. We’ll have to see if customizing your phone like what you can do with some gaming PCs gains traction. Otherwise, it’s a great idea that needs to be tested in the market place.
This is how you get people to buy your new product by bringing them back to the days they spend with your previous devices and have them remember all the good memories from them. This is something most companies overlook when they has a loyal fanbase is to show them all the good memories they have had and will have with your new product. Sony knows who this advertisement is going out to with the tagline “This is for the players.”
"A day after inviting members of its Explorers program to swap their old frames for new ones, Google Glass is showing the world what the latest model looks like. In a post on Google+, the company shows a slightly modified version of Glass that includes an attached mono earbud. These will also be the first models to support prescription lenses, the company said."
Minor update, but it’s a welcome update to the Glass project. Also, if you have one you get a free upgrade to this version, so you didn’t waste that $1,500 you put down for being an early adopter. You can now refer up to three friends to have the opportunity to have a Glass unit for themselves now. Overall, it’s good that Google is not charging developers for an upgraded unit, but I really waiting to see what the retail version of this will be. What worries me is the price of the retail version. If it is under $500, then it’s readily available to a broad customer base, but we have to wait and see when Google finally releases it officially to the public.
