IT's Love-Hate Relationship With Laptops

notyou2 Video hook-ups (497 comments)

WHY is 10% of all meeting and presentation productivity wasted on hooking the laptop up to the damn projector or plasma screen?

I don't understand why it's still so technologically challenging to sync a laptop with an external display, reliably and expediently. Mac's get this right more than windows machines do, but even they're a little sluggish at it.

Google Moon updated

notyou2 notyou2 writes  |  more than 6 years ago

notyou2 (202944) writes "In all the craziness surrounding the recent announcement of the Google Lunar X-Prize, one fact seems to have become buried: Google Moon got a major update. We've lost the infamous cheese, but we've gained vastly better base imagery, new scientific charts, text search over thousands of named craters, and in-depth stories detailing every step of every Apollo landing. It even includes Street View-style panoramas! The New Moon was a collaboration between the pair that did Google Mars and some NASA Ames researchers."

notyou2 writes "Steve Chu, Nobel prize winner and Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Labs, recently presented a talk at Google. It's a balanced look at all aspects of the energy problem and its effects, from global warming to emerging technologies, and well worth viewing. 'Among America's most serious concerns are (i) national security, which is intimately tied to energy security, (ii) economic competitiveness, and (iii) the environment. These issues transcend our national boundaries and have serious implications for the world. At the core of these problems is need to secure clean, affordable and sustainable sources of energy. Solutions must come from a combination of improvements on both the demand and supply side, and science and technology will be an essential part of the solution. After briefly describing the energy problem, the remainder of the talk will describe areas of research that may lead to transforming technologies.'"
