THINK exhibit: technology is awesome

Now that is some ridiculously cool technology.

I wouldn’t mind staying in the room for the entire day if that’s the way I’m going to learn new stuffs.



How to dial a phone

If you feel like you can’t keep up with current technology, see how hard it was to explain how to use a phone to the people in 1954.

It can’t be helped for this lengthy video since it’s a new technology. And, they had no idea how the heck you’re supposed to use the phone. But it is very interesting to see how far we’ve come in just 57 years.

I don’t know why they call zero, O. Maybe they think that people will get confused with zero number and decided to call it a letter instead?

Still, this really changes my perspective on things. I guess I can’t blame my mum for not knowing how to use the computer properly. And I guess I can’t blame some of my friends for being such idiots with technology.

But these are steps that we have to take in order to advance into the future!

I love technology (:

Fucking computer idiots

That’s exactly the way I feel whenever I teach someone something about the computer. It pisses me off to no end.

It’s a frickin !@#$% in the sky!

All-Seeing Blimp Could Be Afghanistan’s Biggest Brain

It’s a frickin blimp meant for surveillance and communications.

This fall, there’ll be a new and extremely powerful supercomputer in Afghanistan. It’ll be floating 20,000 feet above the warzone, aboard a giant spy blimp that watches and listens to everything for miles around.

That is, if an ambitious, $211 million crash program called "Blue Devil" works out as planned. As of now, the airship’s "freakishly large" hull – seven times the size of the Goodyear Blimp’s – has yet to be put together. The Air Force hasn’t settled yet on exactly which cameras and radars and listening devices will fly on board. And it’s still an open question whether the military can handle all the information that the airship will be collecting from above.

Oh, it’s going to be crazy. Because.

The footage can easily overwhelm the people who have to watch it (not to mention the military’s often-fragile battlefield networks). Already, 19 analysts watch a single Predator feed. Gen James Cartwright, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a conference in November that he’d need 2,000 analysts to process the footage collected by a single drone fitted with WAAS sensors. And that’s before the upgrade to the next-generation WAAS, which uses 96 cameras and generates every hour 274 terabytes of information; it’d take  1,870 of the hard drives I’m using right now to store that much data.

This is uhh… Ridiculous. So anyway, go to the source link to read the full article. Oh wait, before I end, here’s a few comments

It’s so obvious now


It’s kind of. Obvious isn’t it?
