Duct tape on the moon. Duct tape on the moon. Duct tape on the MOON. Used for actual repairs. Is this not the greatest invention in our solar system or what?

"Old Map App allows an iPhone user to explore the effects of time on geography and urban development.

"The application displays layers of geo-referenced historical maps projected onto a modern coordinate system, so that the same location can be compared over time. Layers can be faded, adjusted, and explored freely. If the user is located within the region of the historical map, the user's position will be mapped on the old maps to the position of the compass indicator.

"Several maps of New York City & Region are included from the 17th to 19th centuries. All are high-resolution images from the Library of Congress."

Not yet released to the iTunes App Store, but you can sign up to be notified and possibly participate in the beta test. Looks really great.

"Christianity, post-Reformation and post-Luther, with its teaching of a direct, personal, two-way link between the individual and God, unmediated by the collective, and unsubordinate to any other human being, smashes straight through the philosphical/spiritual framework I've just described.

"The book, Almost Perfect, was originally published by Prima Publishing in 1994. It is the story of the rise and fall of WordPerfect Corporation from my point of view. The book sold a little less than 10,000 copies and is now out of print. The copy published here is almost identical to my original manuscript and does not contain Prima's edits. In this version, I have corrected two factual errors, fixed five typos, deleted a few pages at the end, and added a final paragraph."

"It's easy to forget that Apple is 30 years old. Lets take a minute to remember the 20th Anniversary Mac. With a 250 mhz processor and a 12 inch screen, this was a steal at $7,499. We've come a long way."

Hillary was a hero of mine, even though I am in no way a climber. Guess there was just something about his adventuring spirit leading to the conquest of Everest...
