Electronic tattoo display runs on blood. Want!

Some brilliant scientist has finally solved the “how do I keep all my cyborg implants’ batteries charged” problem with a power cell that is fueled on blood glucose – much the same way the bodys’ cells are – and has demonstrated an under-the-skin touch screen interface with infinite use time (as long as your heart’s still beating, basically) and a bluetooth link to, say, my Nokia smartphone. Hopefully this same concept is also being applied to a bluetooth headset that goes right in my ear and never needs to be charged, either. I’m ready for the cyborg revolution – I welcome our new human-robot-hybrid overlords!

Daylight Savings Scapegoat

I will readily admit I hate daylight savings time more than the average person. I think it’s silly and unnecessary, and causes an unneeded interruption in business and commerce every time it changes. But this guy, from a letter-to-the-editor in an Australian newspaper, thinks daylight savings time is cooking the earth. Seems perfectly logical… read and allow yourself to laugh out loud. 🙂
