Cloud Computing Revealed as a Hoax

Cloud Computing Revealed as a Hoax | TECHNOLOGY and SCIENCE | Scoop.it
Today, an Amazon Kindle marketing associate says she fabricated the "cloud" and that it actually started as a bunch of files stored on a PC under her desk.

 

When informed of this news, Microsoft's Steve Ballmer said, "I knew it! I knew it! The whole idea was stupid from the start!" Ballmer has been famously reported to say that Microsoft is "all in" on cloud computing. "First they get me dancing around in YouTube videos like a giant sweating monkey, and now this," Ballmer said.

National Ignition Facility: NIF: A journey to the INSIDE of the SUN

National Ignition Facility: NIF: A journey to the INSIDE of the SUN | TECHNOLOGY and SCIENCE | Scoop.it

MORE ENERGY THAN WE'LL EVER NEED. We had spent $7 billion on fusion technology. Tonight see David Pogue and 60 Minutes.

 

When all that energy slams into millimeter-sized targets, it can generate unprecedented temperatures and pressures in the target materials—temperatures of more than 100 million degrees and pressures more than 100 billion times Earth's atmosphere. These conditions are similar to those in the stars and the cores of giant planets or in nuclear weapons; thus one of the NIF & Photon Science Directorate's missions is to provide a better understanding of the complex physics of nuclear weapons (see National Security). Researchers can also explore basic science, such as astrophysical phenomena, materials science, and nuclear science (see Understanding the Universe). NIF's other major mission is to provide scientists with the physics understanding necessary to create fusion ignition and energy gain for future energy production (see Energy for the Future).

Social Media: NOT FOR REAL MEN! | TECHNOLOGY and SCIENCE | Scoop.it
Social media use tilts toward women, who like its sharing aspect.

 

Social Media is ideal for the metrosexual and feminized men who are good for many things, except as boyfriends, husbands, hunters and gatherers. Mostly for men who are unattractive to the opposite sex.
