It's been 8 years since the U.S. Army spent $5 billion (!) on camouflage that critics say didn't fool anyone.
What will next-generation camo look like?
Think: digital patterns, 3D layering, and... (it's not too far away)... something close to the Harry Potter invisibility cloak.
The Daily was one of the first apps I downloaded after I finally purchased an iPad.
I got the free trial and read every page of the first issue. But when it came time to cough up for a subscription... well, let's just say no thanks.
Don't get me wrong, I loved the idea. But I'll confess I didn't read it every day. And after a while, I forgot I even had the app.
Obviously I wasn't the only one unwilling to pay for The Daily's content. A few months ago, the editor-in-chief reported 100,000 subscribers as he denied rumors of The Daily's demise.
Compare that to The Wall Street Journal Digital Network, which counts more than 1.3 million paid subscribers.
Now if you were hoping to read The Daily before its final issue on December 15, you may be out of luck. The app has already been removed from the iTunes store.
Imagine news as a filter in the age of information overload.
"A TV news show has a finite length. So I can’t show you every single photo of Superstorm Sandy’s power. I have to select the most powerful ones, the most important ones, and I can try to explain to people who might not necessarily know anything about New York why a particular image is so striking."
If you too are a media junkie, read on. It's a great discussion piece.
It will take two days for Endeavour to get from the Los Angeles International Airport to its final home at the California Science Center.
No other space shuttle has ever traveled on city streets before. Preparing the roads have been a big "Endeavour," pardon the pun.
Still, it's hard to imagine such a huge object on the road. So we used Google Earth to get a better idea.
I know there's a ban on wireless devices in the middle of a flight. I know I shouldn't be doing it.
But there I am, speeding through the streets of Liberty City, chasing a friend who's sitting four rows behind me, when my car hits a barrier and explodes.
The plane shakes a little. FULL POST
Some of the old phones you see in that video came from a street market in Hong Kong. Browsing stalls full of old handsets brought back plenty of memories for me.
There was the Nokia 6110, the first phone with Snake. There was the Ericsson T68, the first phone I'd ever seen with a color screen. And the Nokia 7650: My first experience with a so-called "smartphone".
It made me realise something: The phones I loved weren't necessarily the most important ones. The most important ones were the phones that completely discarded the logic of their times and established something genuinely new. FULL POST
It's a rivalry that's arguably more intense inside the courtroom than in stores.
Apple says Samsung ripped off the iPhone and iPad. Samsung says Apple wouldn't have been able to make those products without infringing on Samsung's wireless patents.
