How Would Driver-less Cars Change Motoring?
Forget working or web surfing while the car drives you somewhere... why even be conscious and have to remember the time it takes to get somewhere?
I want self-driving sleeper cars.
Everywhere within 8 hours drive would be just a night's sleep away. Get off work on Friday, sleep, wake up in some mid-point town with a dozen friends from different cities, party for the weekend, as I sleep Sunday night the car gets me back to where I work.
Numerous social and economic knock-on effects follow from self-driving sleeper cars.
Voyager 1 Beyond Solar Wind
An interesting conjecture, but wouldn't anything using reaction drives light itself up quite nicely when it moved around? That is one of the conclusions over at Atomic Rockets.
Apple Blindsides More AppStore Developers
Try AppBrain. It gives you online searching, an install queue, and user defined lists (which I find quite useful for managing possibilities/recommendations I might want to try later).
Why Apple Is So Sticky
Largest app store by an order of magnitude (i seldom pay for anything, tons of free stuff available that do what I want)
Just to be a bit pedantic, "order of magnitude" is false. Android's Market has about 66000 applications, Apple's App Store has something just over 200000. So about three times larger. Three times is not an order of magnitude.

Flash Comes To the iPad Via RipCode
It's a pity the advertisers won (at least they seem to have done so at the moment) the race against micropayments for how to fund "progress" on the web. Great swaths of the web falling into TV2 type drivel seems almost inevitable now. [This comment brought to you by Folgers.]
Berkeley Gets Willow Garage Robot To Fold Towels
Wouldn't it make the problem easier if the towels had some corner highlighting and a pattern to show the orientation? Then the company that sells you the towel folding robot can be sure to have a towel customer for a while.
