Quite Possibly the Coolest Thing I've Ever Seen

I just discovered FluidTunes this morning. It's kind of like Minority Report meets iTunes. Using your Mac's built in iSight and a wave of your hand, you can control your iTunes playlist in a coverflow view fashion. Words don't do this justice, so check out the video below.

Txt Messaging - Now Assisting Doctors and Saving Lives

What does a doctor do when he is suppose to operate on someone but isn't sure how to perform the operation? He txt messages another doctor who he knows has performed the same operation, DUH!!

This article explains a situation when just that happened!

A boy had 2-3 days to live and Dr. David Nott was able to save his life after successfully performing an operation he had never done before with just step by step instructions via txt from a colleague.

Truly an amazing story! How many of you would be cool with undergoing surgery if you knew the doctor that was just about to operate on you was following step by step instructions via txt? Ha!

Antimatter? Really?

This is heavy. In something that sounds more like the plot from Goldfinger than actual scientific application, scientists are creating antimatter by blasting gold with lasers. I still can't really grasp what antimatter is, other than the opposite of matter, but this article, and this article are a good start at explaining a difficult concept. Yes, I had to refer to CERN's Kid's Corner for an explanation I still didn't really grasp. The article is filled with unbelievable language that sounds a lot like fiction to me:

"A split second later the positrons and electrons annihilate each other on contact in a flash of pure energy, called a gamma ray."

Isn't that how The Incredible Hulk was created? The truth is definitely stranger than fiction.
