Odds and Ends 35

-1-

I, CRINGELY -- So Steve Jobs walks into a bar….. - Robert says that Apple's going to recalibrate the calculation for bars representing signal strength, and they'll be lower and Apple will turn around and blame AT&T. (And I add.. and use that as a reason to put the iPhone on Verizon Wireless by Christmas?)

-2-

ENGADGET -- Renault DeZir recharges while you stare, not while you wait -- ooh, pretty

-3-

SETH GODIN -- Do you have the right to be heard?

-4-

SEATTLE SCAPE -- Creating of a new central waterfront neighborhood

-5-

FAIL BLOG -- Product Fail - watch out, God's packing heat

-6-

ENGADGET -- Queen Rania of Jordan takes to TwitVid to Promote Her Country

-7-

ANDY SERNOVITZ -- You need personality -- "These shirts WERE tested on animals..."

-8-10- Videos after the break...

Testing a new lunar lander, an Eigenharp Alpha unboxing, more from the awesome/scary quadrocopters...

-8- VIDEO

Automated Lunar Lander testing. Uses one single rocket engine which it nimbly adjusts to keep it on target and bring it to the ground slowly.



-9- VIDEO

Eigenharp Alpha unboxing. I wish I could buy one of these to give to Patrick. I bet he would just rock on it.



-10- VIDEO

When we last saw these quadrotors (see #10), they were performing some amazing stunts. These will definitely be taking part in the robot uprising as this new video shows an added gripper claw and the ability to work in concert to lift heavy loads. The buzzing noise is also nice and ominous.
