the Monster Garage version might have been a failure. but this the Delorean Hovercraft actually worked!

the coolest thing about the iPhone camera is that it's the only camera that we have that gets better as time goes by.
the Maker Faire 2012 has come and gone. we're reinspired to make an R2D2. and finish the 3D printer. here's a talk that wraps up the last incarnation of this event that attracts thousands of nerds, geeks, hackers, and normal people.
it’s better than the circus, the local carnival or a parade. the Maker Faire has been held at the San Mateo County Fairground since 2006. the event has changed over the years. it gets bigger adding more vendors, talks, exhibits and interests to a growing crowd that doesn’t seem so much like a crowd because everyone is there to learn and enjoy. some of the Faire seems more like a trade show than a faire and maybe that’s not a bad thing because it means that ideas have turned into businesses that are thriving.
the best practices for Mac maintenance turn out to be very simple: do nothing.
from a personal computer point of view there there only 3 sizes of floppy disk in common use: 8", 5.25" and 3.5". smaller sized floppy disks emerged late in the game which got used for things like music players and cameras. but these formats never found a foot hold in computing.
almost everything about a floppy disk is the same no matter how large they were. disks use physical detections for practically everything: read/write capable, track zero detection, and sometimes sector position. 3.5" drives had density detectors. this meant the the floppy inside the drive define how it was read. you can see how easily a drive could become "out of alignment" making media impossible to read in other drives.
Macworld Expo has been "the tradeshow" for all things Mac for the last 25 years. there was a time when it was mandatory for anyone who had an interest in Mac to attend. companies came here to announce products, users came to learn, buyers came to do deals and the press could see all their contacts. it was all under one roof.
today it's not the show that it once was.
Continuous is a mode on your camera that takes picture after picture for as long as you hold down the shutter. the frame rate of the shots depends on the camera. the Canon shoots is about 4 FPS, Fuji is .3 seconds per frame, Nikon has a mode called 16 (which turns the flash off automatically, there is also has a mode that does 1.5 FPS and the Sony have different rates that depend on the camera. there are several Casio cameras that have super fast frame rates like up to 1000 frames per second!
if you take one picture a day and share it every day for a year by the end you'll have 365 awesome shots!
