Mac Plus vs AMD Dualcore

I actually do miss my old Mac Plus

It was an awesome machine, and as the link above shows it is awesomer than any modern windows PC. You like how I added my editorial comment there to inflame the masses? Neat.

One Trillion Pixels...

*Dr Evil pinky pose*

Well, it's not a very interesting image, but it's got relevance to me as it's of a stained cross-section of cancerous breast tissue (and I've seen similar stuff from the work that wifey is doing), and it's an example from a digital pathology imaging company, to show what their stuff is capable of... The image is repeated at a high level, but just imagine what detail you can see if medical imaging equipment can capture copious amounts of pixels in the near future...

scroll to the bottom to watch the ad if you don't want to read all the details first.

Noah's Ark 2.0

Not really a v2.0 .. more like a Mobile Edition.

May 28, 2007 While politics and public opinion remain divided on global warming, the majority of scientific weight tells us that the major factor contributing to rising global temperatures is our own environmental carelessness. This is certainly Greenpeace's view; the well-known environmental lobby group has started construction of a replica of Noah's Ark on the top of Mt. Ararat as a warning of the bleak future the planet could be facing if strong action isn't taken.

Full story..

B&W Star Wars

Celebrating 30 years of Star Wars, I thought a SW based vid might be appropriate.

Perhaps this is what it might have been if it was made 30 years earlier.

Even if you don't have a Wii and you want to check out the interface, you can click on the link below to check it out in your non-Wii browser... [via Official Google Reader Blog]

5 days of a pro photographer

Nice movie that shows every photo taken over a 5 day span. You get to see the not so good shots as well as the good ones, and to be honest most of this guy's shots are better than my best.

digg full of pueriles - neva !

The most vocal of the digg community are a childish bunch.

First read this ;

and now check out the first few pages ;

ok, amusing, but childish, who wants to see several pages of kiddies who have too much time.

The wisdom of the crowd indeed.
