In case you were wondering… Also, would make for a very interesting exam question… Answer by Mahek Mody: Let's start with a slight detour – There is a very famous (& I think very cool) physics fact about pole vault. When a pole vaulter jumps a high bar, her Center of Gravity (CG) need not go as high as the bar she needs to clear. In other words, at the top of the jump the pole vaulter needs to go over the bar and not her CG.

After the little stumble he has just before he makes his jump, he has his eyes on the ball. Asse... (more)

Apple Death Knell Counter

Apple Death Knell Counter – The Mac Observer Taking a trip down the Apple doomsayer memory lane. The pieces from the pre-iPhone era make for particularly interesting reading including naysayers for Apple Stores and the crowd favourite Macs. Also, note the dozen times Rob Enderle has been quoted over the years – not a quitter for sure. Incidentally, the first quote (at the very bottom) comes from Steve Jobs himself, way back in 1995. tags: apple death Some of the highlights: Google will probably run the most popular online store, but there will be thousands.

One diabetic’s take on Google’s Smart Contact Lenses — Tech News and Analysis A different take on the problem & solution tags: lenses google healthcare  why would they ignore the fact that as a diabetes patient, it is generally recommended that I not wear contact lenses.

And on top of that if you have say, astigmatism (like I do), then contacts are less of an option. Diabet... (more)
