A Quick Guide to Buying Your First 3D Printer
See on Scoop.it - Technologeek


Although it’s a relatively new industry, there are a lot of 3D printers available on the market.

It’s helpful to browse 3D printers online to see what’s available and to get a feel for what models you may be interested in. However, without actually seeing a model in action and the output that it produces, you’ll never really know how well it operates. If possible, visit a vendor or attend a 3D printing conference to try a model before you buy it, and you’ll minimize the chance of suffering any future problems.

Intel’s next Xeon chip - up to 18 cores
See on Scoop.it - Technologeek

AMD and Intel have been in a race to stuff their highest-end processors with as many cores as possible, and it appears that this one-upmanship isn’t about to end any time soon — much to your advantage. As Macworld UK notes, Intel is close to releasing a new range of Xeon E5 processors where more cores (and thus more parallel computing power) is par for the course. According to ChipLoco’s leaked roadmap, even the lowest-spec chips start with six cores versus today’s four; the best model touts a whopping 18, which should help heavy-duty systems juggle a huge number of simultaneous workloads.

Getting the best view of the Milky Way

See on Scoop.it - Technologeek

From a few places on Earth where the atmosphere is just right you might see the shape of the milky way, pick out the galaxy center, and some of the local group galaxies – including the Large and Small Megallenic Clouds.

This panorama shot by Amit Kamble is one of my new favorites. LMC and SMC (bottom & top, left), and our milky way galaxy with its shiny center.

An article I wrote this morning, and click for the video too =)

It’s Friday! Rush hour traffic is about to be piling up here.
Better carpool with someone, get ahead of it all!
It’s better for the environment too, people!
