NASA's Mars rover Curiosity experienced an unexpected software reboot (also known as a warm reset) yesterday (11/7/13) during a communications pass as it was sending engineering and science data to the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, for later downlinking to Earth.
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which has overhauled understanding of the Red Planet since 2006, has passed 200 terabits in the amount of science data returned. The data returned by the mission alone is more than three times the total data returned via NASA's Deep Space Network for all the other missions managed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., over the past 10 years.
That announcement by MidAmerican Energy last spring that it intended to add 1,050 more megawatts of installed wind power capacity in Iowa – the state with more wind power per capita than any other, already – wasn’t mere talk.

When we heard the news that Megan and David Ellison, who are the kids of Oracle founder Larry Ellison, had bought the right to The Terminator, we weren’t sure if the movie would ever get the green light. The rights deal lasts until 2018, so Megan and David have to get the movie made by that point before The Terminator slips out of their hands. This apparently won’t happen because it looks like Terminator 5 is indeed up and running, and casting has already begun.
Adobe has a lot to answer for. We've gone from 3 million to 130 million to 150 million possible accounts hacked. It's all out there for everyone to see on the interwebs. Were it not twee software applications, we'd probably sense more outrage. Right now, it's hard to fathom what the deal is and how far this travesty goes.

Much of what goes into our attraction to one tablet or other has to do with status and the perception that if you have a certain product you have arrived. The iPad Air is an impressive product if you value physical design and number of apps over all else but there are products that better target particularl uses. While the Panasonic Toughpad 4K is hardly in the iPad’s weight or size class it is ideal for those that want to create on something that is still very portable. In a world awash with iPad clones it is nice to see a vendor try to create something very different.
Smartphones and tablets have not just changed the way we shop online, they are also having an impact in brick-and-mortar shops, as many shoppers are using them to compare prices and read product reviews. But shoppers aren’t the only ones doing a bit of intelligence work on the ground, the retailers are responding in kind.

Throughout our universe, tucked inside galaxies far, far away, giant black holes are pairing up and merging. As the massive bodies dance around each other in close embraces, they send out gravitational waves that ripple space and time themselves, even as the waves pass right through our planet Earth.
Toyota, continuing a steady march towards a 2015 debut of its first production hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, plans to showcase at the Tokyo Motor Show later this month a concept version of what this new offering might look like.
