There are six different basic materials involved. They are Metal, wood, textile, rubber, plastic and stone. Different materials give people different senses, which thus enabled the blind men to play. And here we present the very example of this inspiration – The new Rubik Cube.
I can’t even get the real Rubik’s cube sloved, but this one looks interesting, if not for the cool surfaces anyway.
So normally I’d only tackle one rumor or piece of information at a time, but this week has been filled with so many I feel the need to comment on two.
There is big news out there about at least 3rd gen dev. kits being circulated around 3rd party developers. Awesome news. But it’s not the 1,000 that everyone and their mother is reporting it to be. Read the quote closely:
“We have shipped over a thousand controller dev kits to developers so that they can begin getting experience with the controller mechanics”
All this means is that developers are finally getting their hands on software to start fully messing with the new controller. The best news? This means I’ll bet at least one dev. will leak something and with reports of more secrets involved in the controller…times are good for nintendo fans.
Secondly, for all those reporting that the stand is also the power supply.
No it isn’t!
That made absolutely no sense to begin with. The purpose of an external power brick is to take that huge heat source and keep it away from the processor, which helps the processor keep cool and the sytem run better. Seriously.
I don’t even feel like linking this one at all, partly because class is over now.
BOFFINS at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have got a computer to find out the answer to an algorithm before they actually asked it.
I wonder if it will be able to answer the ultimate question of life, the universe and everytyhing.
Although, google can already do that for us: the answer
We got another bulb to explode, and this one scared us:
thats a 700 x 10000 pixel image made entirely in MS Paint. Its amazing!
Looks like thats another google beta that was open to the public for a tiny period of time.
I was able to get in with my account and make a page:
Its basic, only spent about 5 minutes playing around with it.
Now, they need to link the storage space on pages to gmail. That will probably come soon.
I cannot say how much this feature is needed. Many a time i replied with my gmail account to my domain emails, or university emails, now i wont have this problem.
Plus, it makes it easier for me to keep my email private.
No spam, im proud of that feat!
The next step on the google road to world domination:
I’d give you some information on it, but, the main page isnt loading for me anymore.
Amazingly slow, but i will post back as soon as i get my page up for all the world to see.
So, we finally got a light bulb to explode in the microwave!
Amazing! Only took us like forever!
We also did the cd-house we built, a vacuum tube, and some toothpaste.
I also changed the color on the sub labels to a darker blue, i didnt like it, neither did mike, it looked too pastel like.
Tell me what you think of the colors, and things and videos and all that.
Next up on the list of things to do, make an information page.
