Tech Stuff 17

This is a sort of search and discover newsletter of my findings of things that may relate to technology in one way or another.  It might be the latest gosh wow tech, it might be something as old of humanity.  It might relate to science large or small.  It might be art for art’s sake.  Or somebody just doing something funky. Because I think that technology is just the representation of human creativity and breaking boundaries.  So I’m certainly not going to place boundaries here except that it won’t be the same old, same old.  So almost no gadgets or yacking about the latest phone or whatever, unless of course it involves taking them apart or destroying them in unusual ways.  Or putting them to work in imaginative ways that most people won’t even think of.  So buckle up, it’s going to be a fun ride.

Why the navy maintains a Forest.

It’s not just the USS constitution. All ships use wood for things like hatches, bulkheads, emergency repair and damage control materials, furnishings and ton of other little things that  most people don’t consider, but at absolutely essential to running a ship. Having a viable source of wood is a key resource for the Navy.

Death By GPS.

http://arstechnica.com/cars/2016/05/death-by-gps/

A GPS is no replacement for a map and being alert to hazards.  If you don’t know the territory, it’s better to stay on the main roads.  And use your judgment as well as the GPS directions.
