Here's an old video I am really fond of, which is actually a commercial for fibre broadband from Telia. It gives a glimpse into a possible, and very close, future. - F H Hakansson
IX: Interesting read of the day: NASA’s FTL Warp-Drive
After spending exactly 7 h editing (boy am I tired) I can't write a poem. Not mentally anyway. Instead I'm bringing to your attention a piece of technology, or rather technology-in-progress, which could very well change our lives in an extremely profound way in less than 50 years.

I need Apps!
After being in a digital queue for over a month my iPhone 5 finally arrived. One of my favorite Apps, one I highly suggest you get if you are on i-devices, is Vocabology.

That's how naughty I am! I still managed to get some gifts (can you believe it?) I have written a few poems … Continue reading Human Version 2.0

iPhone 4S, Siri, and Denise
The iPhone 4S has been announced and so far the internet community is enraged. Well, not me, of course. I am a bit disappointed with the hardware specs but the iPhone was never known for that to begin with. No Apple products are. They are know for their software. Since the old iPhones can upgrade … Continue reading iPhone 4S, Siri, and Denise
Amazing mind-read technology!
Just came across this clip on Youtube and felt I had to share it. From the description of the video: The left clip is a segment of the movie that the subject viewed while in the magnet. The right clip shows the reconstruction of this movie from brain activity measured using fMRI. The reconstruction was obtained using … Continue reading Amazing mind-read technology!
