First, here are my posts from this week:
- Favorite Books – A discussion and a bit of reminiscing on my favorite books as a kid.
- Old Game Tuesday – SimCity 2000 – Reticulating Splines.
- Movie Review: Green Lantern – The lantern (not Hal) has better screen presence than Blake Lively.
And a few new things you might find interesting:
Wired’s GeekDad column tells parents what they need to know about Cars 2. Sounds better than what I’m expecting to be honest, and I’m from a place that worships at the altar of NASCAR.
Also at Wired, the Sun has sent a Coronal Mass Ejection towards Earth. The phrase ‘Coronal Mass Ejection’ just sounds awesome to me.
Netflix is now on a few select Android devices, with more to come.
Lifehacker has a whole series of Night School posts – they take a subject and give a layman the basics to improve themselves at it. The current series is about photography, including how best to use the automated and manual settings on a camera, helping to understand ISO and aperture settings, and the like. They’ve also covered video editing.
New trend in movie posters – Diagonal!
Finally, looking back on old posts here I found this: the Ultra-fast, Ultra-intense Laser. The applications they are looking at for this tech are awesome, whether it’s bonding replacement joints to bone, killing cancer cells, or, you know, creating Wolverine.
