The Battle of the Tablets: Which One Should You Buy?

The iPad TabletEver since the Apple iPad was released in 2010, the tablet has made a huge impact on the computing world.  Never before were people able to carry a compact computer with a touch screen and do their work.  The original tablets were seen as only being capable of reading and playing games. As time has passed, people are starting to realize that you can do productivity and business work with these marvels, as well (although, not as fast as with a laptop).  Work can be done on them (I am using my iPad to write this article) and within the next few years, I foresee the tablet as being the only choice of computer.  If you are considering getting one of these, you have to ask yourself, “Which one do I buy?”  A year ago, there was only one answer: The iPad.  Today, more and more companies are following suit with their own versions.  Here’s a look at five of these.

Five Inventions We Can Thank Islam For

IslamWhile there is a lot of prejudice in the world today towards the worshipers of Islam and people from the Middle East, in general, you might be surprised by what we have to be thankful that they’ve given the Western world.  Yes, this strange culture from the east is responsible for many of the innovations that we take for granted.  The Muslim people are a group of forward thinkers who were far more advanced than their Christian counterparts all throughout the Middle Ages.  During the Crusades, returning soldiers brought back some of these inventions and amazed Europe.  Here are five inventions brought to you by Muslim people!

Five Nuclear Accidents That Have Occurred In The U.S.

Nuclear AccidentsWith all of the worries and news about nuclear meltdowns happening in Japan, I found it interesting that the United States has had some serious meltdowns of its own.  The Fukushima nuclear facility has now surpassed the Three Mile accident and is on its way to the level of Chernobyl – the world’s worst nuclear disaster in history.  The plant is leaking nuclear radiation up to 190 miles away now, including the capital of Tokyo.  It’s some scary stuff.  It is the happenstance that could send nuclear debris into the air and contaminate areas as far east as the United States.  However, it won’t be the first time the U.S. has had its share of nuclear disasters?  Here are five of them… If you want to find the Fukushima Nuclear Facility of Google Earth, you can find it at: 37°25′17″N 141°01′57″E.

Five Heavenly Bodies That Have Struck The Earth

Impact Events on earthThere is always the great fear that an asteroid or comet will hit the earth.  It isn’t a matter of if it will happen, but when.  When we think about something like this hitting the earth, we often think of the one that killed off all of the dinosaurs.  It might surprise you that it’s happened more than once and during recorded history (in some cases).  The most famous of these is probably the Tunguska event, which happened in far Eastern Russia in 1908.  Luckily, this explosion never touched the earth, however caused massive destruction in the area around it.  For this reason, I have not included it on this list.  The ones I have included can all be seen from Google Earth, so I have provided the coordinates for you to search for them on this satellite program.  You can get it for free by going to the web site at: earth.google.com Read more…

The Lost Inventions Of Nikola Tesla

Nikola TeslaNikola Tesla (1846-1943) is probably best known for his inventions of the radio and his namesake Tesla coil found in every Frankenstein movie.  This Serbian immigrant was an important contributor to the birth of commercial electricity, and is best known for his many revolutionary developments in the field of electromagnetism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  Most importantly, it was his idea of an alternating current (AC) that brought a safer electricity into our homes.  However, by the time he reached his later years in life, his eccentric personality and his seemingly unbelievable and sometimes bizarre claims about possible scientific and technological developments, Tesla was ultimately ostracized and regarded as a mad scientist by many.  Was he crazy?  Maybe.  No one will know because when he died, Tesla’s papers and other property were impounded by the United States government and considered top secret.  While the items were later given back to his family, it is unknown what was left out. Tesla was supposedly working on weapons at the time of his death and they were not among the papers returned.  Here are five inventions that were lost when Tesla died. Read more…
