   This is so cool!

     It already exists, and I can hardly wait to use it!

    Seamless transitions from audio and video, using your cellphone, bus stop walls, TV, and even glass counters and tabletop furniture. You must see this. 🙂

A Day Made Of Glass


I like cool. 😉  Don’t you?  Just imagine a day like this! What do you think? Is this realistic? It sure is futuristic!

Wouldn’t it be creepy to have Big Brother watching you? George Orwell was certainly ahead of his time in his book,”1984“.

What is GPS? How does it work?

GPS constellation animationGlobal Positioning Satellites

are all around us (literally)!


  • How many satellites are there?
  • How often do they orbit planet earth?
  • Where are they?
  • What do they do?

Don’t you just love new technology?  With all these satellites swirling around Planet Earth, it makes one wonder about the effect of all this tech stuff:

  • Will they damage earth’s  atmospheric pressure?
  • Will they produce dangerous radiation?
  • Will they crash to earth, killing hundreds of people?
  • Will they invade our privacy, here, on earth?
  • Will cellphones always work?

Who knows?  Anyway, here’s the link:   http://bit.ly/9fcG2x
