Charles, Thanks for the comment. It seems alot of companies are using the iOS as the defacto standard when developing apps instead of the Android OS. I've also been reading quite a few tweets from Entrepreneur magazine the tides made been changing as Android devices are becoming more prevalent in the business world compare to the iPhone or iPad products. Very interesting times in tech!
mrdon, Not sure what their plans are but I would be surprised if an Android app isn't on the horizon. It's clear that those two platforms will be battling for the near term, and the user base for both is huge.
@apresher: I think the battle between iOS and Android is keeping everyone on its toes. It's a good thing anyway since the competition is done in a spirit where the users can benefit the latest technologies from both parties. Just a matter of time on who will do it first.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
Neil Fromer is the executive director of the Resnick Institute, a program for energy and sustainability at the California Institute of Technology, working to develop new ideas and research technologies related to providing a sustainable future. He spoke to us about the severity of the current drought in California and how solar energy can help prevent such situations in the future.
From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
