Samsung’s flagship KS9800 is bold, beautiful, and wicked smart

Posted by in categories: electronics, virtual reality

Wicked nice — however, I cannot wait to see SamSung leverage Q-Dots (QD) for VR.


It’s Samsung’s best 4K UHD TV yet, and not just because it has stunning picture quality. It’s also the smartest, easiest-to-use TV we’ve seen in some time.

How To Get Better At Quantum Computing: Make A Game Of It

Posted by in categories: computing, entertainment, internet, quantum physics

Creative approach and I like it. I advise IT leaders, developers, architects, etc. to start learning as much as they can about Quantum Technology because technology in the next 6 to 7 years will begin the accelerated adoption of this technology and at that point it will be too late for folks in tech to catch up. Now is the time to learn and keep track of the progression of this technology as well as understand where and how this technology can be leveraged earlier in various areas of the infrastructure, devices, and even in industry.


Researchers gave internet users games that simulate quantum physics experiments, and internet users gave the researchers more elegant solutions.

Silicon Valley’s zero-gravity space startup boom

Posted by in category: space travel

MOUNTAIN VIEW The next big thing in space exploration might not come from a shiny NASA research facility. Instead, it may spring from an abandoned gas station or a converted McDonald’s in the heart of Silicon Valley’s growing space startup scene.

Bay Area companies are commercializing the space industry, with ambitions as lofty as the cruising altitude of the International Space Station. They range from Deep Space Industries, which plans to mine asteroids, to Made In Space, which is working on in-space manufacturing, to Planet Labs, which aims to take daily photographs of everywhere on Earth.

Just as in other technology sectors, Silicon Valley is leading the space startup boom. At least a dozen space companies have popped up in the Bay Area over the past few years, with a concentration taking over empty buildings on Mountain View’s Moffett Field.

This study 40 years ago could have reshaped the American diet. But it was never fully published

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, food, government, health

#nutrition #CrapScience

So after 40 years of prescribing low fat diets & demonising cholesterol, the largest & longest clinical experiment ever (40 years, 9,000 patients, randomly assigned diets) shows that “Patients who lowered their cholesterol, presumably because of the special diet, actually suffered MORE heart-related deaths than those who did not.”

In other words, if you’ve been cutting on steaks, butter etc. for 4 years or more, you may have INCREASED your mortality rate from heart disease by %8.
