Billions For Charity

In a relatively unheard of act of generosity, The Gates Family and Warren Buffet have convinced some of the worlds most wealthy people to donate more than half of their fortunes to charity and philanthropy.  I am trying to find the silver lining or secret agenda behind this move by all of these seemingly lifetime self-serving billionaires, but I can’t.  It seems as if these people either are trying to show off their wealth by having enough to give away billions, which is a win for charity, or that they are just genuinely  being charitable and selfless.  This may be a shift in global conscious and peace, love and charity!

Stream Netflix On Your iPhone

So technically I can’t suggest you do this to your phone but if you love Netflix and have the time to watch a movie on your phone then here technically go.  Takes a little tech know-how but after performing these steps here your iPhone will have the iPad Netfix app and your will be watching Avatar in class instead of actually learning something.

10 Free Album Downloads Weekly

Free Music!!!  I know, right it’s so amazing.  Check this site out every Sunday for 10 more free albums.  I love that bands are now signing on to the free music movement in hopes that you will spread the word, buy concert tickets, or buy merchandise or another CD of theirs.  Last week I downloaded a full length CD from these artists: RTB2, Saddet, Carmen Costa and Glass Delirum for free.  I usually find that at least 2 out of the 10 CD’s fit my style and genre of musical taste.  So thats at least two free CD’s a week!  Your welcome.

Better Than Pandora?

I know you all use Pandora.  On your cell phone, on your iPod and on your computer.  Well here is a little change of pace in your online music radio.  How would you like to actually pick the songs you get to listen to, in the order you want, sounds great right.  Thats’ what Grooveshark thought too.  Create playlists from their huge online selection and switch between songs back and forth how ever you would like.  I’m not 100% certain how this is legal but while it’s here enjoy it!

Invisibility Cloak

No this is not a J.K.Rowling invention or part of the newest sci-fi flick this is a real cloak that will make you invisible.  Scientists have found a way to bend light around and object so what is visible is what is directly behind the coat anot the thing in the coat itself.  Scientists use a 1 square inch peice of silkworm silk and coat it in gold resonaters.

Ordinarily when silk is exposed to terahertz waves they pass straight through it. When the new silk metamaterial was subjected to T-rays the scientists detected a resonance.A metamaterial that works in the terahertz range is nothing new. But, unlike other metamaterials, silk is biocompatable — the human body won’t reject silk-based implants the way it does with most other materials. The scientists implanted the patterned silk into a muscle, and still detected a resonance….  Their main focus is in biomedical applications. One of the first biomedical uses could be as an implantable glucose sensor for diabetics. As the level of glucose changes inside the body, it changes the silk. Then as the silk changes, do does the metamaterial printed on the silk. That change would then be relayed to the person’s cell phone; no needle prick necessary.  Silk-based invisibility would also allow doctors and radiologists to cloak various organs or tissues and see through them, said Omenetto, getting a better image of the organs or tissues usually hidden behind.”

Invisibility rocks!!

Google/Verizon To Destroy The Internet

If you read no other articles here please read this!  So I could give you a breakdown on this article, but I believe that this will become one of our most important issues in our lifetime.  I don’t want to gloss over this and give you a partial understanding about this issue.  I feel that the 5 minutes it will take you to read this is well worth the amount of information you will learn.  These are things that will happen in the near future and being knowledgeable about these topics is your best weapon against tyranny.  So read this, take away from it what you will and be knowledgeable when it comes time to vote or protest or rally against these things coming to pass.
