You apple users already get this…others need some prompting!
Just bumped across a review on the new iPads and two sentences caught my eye. The reviewer mentioned surfing to Zillow, the site that lists houses for sale. He commented on how the pictures looked all pixelated.
That’s important, and it’s also a sesimic change in the digital world of our websites and images on the mobile devices viewed by our clients. In ‘the good old days,’ the way to keep your web pages loading fast, and not bust through your storage and bandwidth limits of your hosting provider, the best bet was to ‘downsize’ the images to be 100dpi (dots per inch) down to no less than 72dpi.
Mostly from his knee camera….pretty cool seeing the left spin.
Is an American General losing his job for trying to save the Americans besieged in Benghazi? This is the latest potential wrinkle in the growing scandal surrounding the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack that left four men dead and President Obama scrambling for a coherent explanation.
On October 18, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta appeared unexpectedly at an otherwise unrelated briefing on ‘Efforts to Enhance the Financial Health of the Force.” News organizations and CSPAN were told beforehand there was no news value to the event and gave it scant coverage. In his brief remarks Mr. Panetta said, “Today I am very pleased to announce that President Obama will nominate General David Rodriguez to succeed General Carter Ham as commander of U.S. Africa Command.’ This came as a surprise to many, since General Ham had only been in the position for a year and a half. The General is a very well regarded officer who made AFRICOM into a true Combatant Command after the ineffective leadership of his predecessor, General William E. “Kip” Ward. Later, word circulated informally that General Ham was scheduled to rotate out in March 2013 anyway, but according to Joint doctrine, “the tour length for combatant commanders and Defense agency directors is three years.” Some assumed that he was leaving for unspecified personal reasons.
Business professor Bill Jackson may have rough days when he wishes he could wear a flak jacket.
But this past summer, it became mandatory.
Jackson, who teaches at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, spent 45 days in Iraq sharing his insights with university teachers about how to encourage business startups and entrepreneurial activity. While in Baghdad, Jackson lived at one fortified compound and taught at another. His commute of less than 10 miles took 90 minutes, thanks to frequent stops at Baghdad checkpoints. Jackson routinely traveled in a three-vehicle convoy of armed security guards while wearing a flak jacket.
It wasn’t for show. Two hours before he arrived for a workshop at Baghdad University, an Iraq general was assassinated at the front gate. Other violence occurred nearby while he was in the city.
“I was naive about the Middle East,” Jackson conceded in a recent discussion about his Iraq experience.
Iraq is not poor. The country is rich with oil, holding the world’s third largest reserves.
The Counter-Electronics High Power Microwave Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP), led by Boeing’s Phantom works, promised to change the face of contemporary warfare, and its test was a complete success.
CHAMP flew over the Utah Test and Training Range last Tuesday, discharging a burst of High Power Microwaves onto the test site and brought down the compound’s entire spectrum of electronic systems, apparently without producing any other damage at all. Even the camera recording the test was shut down.

Posted in the event some techie is working late being mySQLish and getting the munchies and thinking about the future…
Have you ever though about what would make the ultimate pizza delivery vehicle? Something that would match Neil Stephenson’s The Deliverator. Dominos did, so they teamed up with Local Motors and sponsored a design competition to come up with something better than that miserable, rusted out beater that brought pizza to your apartment last time you got the late night munchies.
I like this visualization, perhaps because its crude, almost childish look contrasts with the horror it depicts in such a simple way: Worldwide dictators ordered by the number of killings, one drop, one million dead.
Of course, the winner is Mao,
