A cool Palm Pre commercial

Now why couldn’t they have done this first? The question remains, will this be enough to start moving all those Pres and Pixies?

Cool Asteroid Deflection Device

In Wired. I have no idea

why there are teradactyls in that illustration, but then again, I watch A Flintstones Christmas Carol and my brain doesn’t explode, so it must be cool.

In the meantime, while waiting for the end of 2012 and beyond and if you need a reason to sign up for Twitter, this asteroid alert service could be the ticket.

Asteroids are a serious business once they penetrate the atmosphere; The rock that caused the Tungaska explosion in 1908 was estimated about the size of a six story building. The one that hit the Yucatan  65 million years ago that caused the massive dinosaur extinction was less than a kilometer cubed. And these things are not rare events.

Happy Holidays and look to the skies …¬† don’t stand underneath when a monster flies by!
