Simply magnifique!

You feel like listening to U2.
You search for it.
You get a channel with U2 like songs.
You like the song, you can flag it by clicking on the heart.
You don't like it, you can block it, or skip to the next track.
Pas de pub.

A bit later… you need to clean your place and DO THE DISHES….. so you search for Crystal Method and pump up the volume :)

Simplement genial!

Europe IQ…. Deutschland über alles!

March 28, 2006

"Professor Lynn, who caused controversy last year by claiming that men were more intelligent than women by about five IQ points on average, said that populations in the colder, more challenging environments of Northern Europe had developed larger brains than those in warmer climates further south. The average brain size in Northern and Central Europe is 1,320cc and in southeast Europe it is 1,312cc. “The early human beings in northerly areas had to survive during cold winters when there were no plant foods and they were forced to hunt big game,” he said. “The main environmental influence on IQ is diet, and people in southeast Europe would have had less of the proteins, minerals and vitamins provided by meat which are essential for brain development.”

Barcode and… your camera phone

"Let's say I go out shopping and I want to buy Johnson and Johnson baby lotion," he says. "I can simply take a picture of the bottle's barcode with my mobile phone.

"The mobile phone recognises the barcode immediately and automatically sends a message to a central computer. The computer then conducts a search for all shops in the area carrying this lotion and what price they charge.

"It then sends the results back to my phone within five seconds, along with the address and phone number of each of the shops. So every time I shop, I can save money."

60 DVDs per second…

GizMag article

"German and Japanese scientists recently collaborated to achieve just such a quantum leap in obliterating the world record for data transmission. By transmitting a data signal at 2.56 terabits per second over a 160-kilometer link (equivalent to 2,560,000,000,000 bits per second or the contents of 60 DVDs) the researchers bettered the old record of 1.28 terabits per second held by a Japanese group. By comparison, the fastest high-speed links currently carry data at a maximum 40 Gbit/s, or around 50 times slower."

1 CD of 700 Megabits;
Bits = 700 000 000
Kilobits = 700000
Gigabits = 0.7
Terabits = 0.0007
