CPU history back to back: Intel vs AMD

It is about the modern processor history, mind you, the one since 1970s until now, not the one from 1826, when the differential engine was built or since 1600s, when a tax calculator was devised by Pascal or from way back before when the Chineze were using the abacus. Intel first launches the 4004 CPU […]

Computer goodies: history of AMD CPUs, quantum computers explained, how bitcoin works, 3D processors based on N3XT specs

There are simply too many news and videos to write about and I don’t have the will to write 3-5 long articles per day. Nor the time, actually. People have to work here, eh? But, instead I like to save the links to such videos and then post them with a short paragraph on TGTG, […]

Mega sci-fi trailers: Independence Day: Resurgence and Star Trek Beyond

I know you’ve been waiting for an Independence Day sequel. Admit it. The first movie was too good for me to forget. It has action, humor and Will Smith. The sequel will not have Will Smith.

3 genius ideas: parking floating signs, water and air drone, tree shaker

I have seen the parking floating point first on Facebook (direct link) and it features a simple balloon arrow pointing down with “Here!” on it. When someone gets to the parking place the car goes above the wire the balloon is connected to and the balloon is lowered. Neat. Meet Naviator, a drone which can […]

Space edition: Earth without the Moon and the Mars Space Exploration Vehicle

Without the Moon we would have a short day, since the planet would spin faster. A day would be only 6 hours long. Also, without the Moon the tilt of Earth would vary so much that seasons would be wildly inconsistent from year to year. So, the Moon is very important. Also, in this space […]

The particle zoo of 400 or so subatomic particles

Via Wikipedia: In particle physics, the term particle zoo[1][2] is used colloquially to describe a relatively extensive list of the then known “elementary particles” that almost look like hundreds of species in the zoo. In the history of particle physics, the situation was particularly confusing in the late 1960s. Before the discovery of quarks, hundreds […]

Investing in science pays off thousands of times

I had a short talk a couple of months ago, on June 21st 2015, in Brașov, Romania, about science and secular humanism. I argued that science gave us mobile phones and television and some kids from the last line started laughing: “how could science give us TVs”? Well, how could it? Did you know that […]

The future of information storage: DNA

Dr Robert Grass, Senior Scientist at ETH Zurich, and DR Reinhard Heckel, Postdoctoral Researcher, are working on a way to store information in DNA. DNA is very resilient and it can also withstand space travel as an experiment with plasmids in 2011 has shown us: a series of plasmids have been put on the outside […]
