Apple is giving users a Trash Can

iPhone 7 Rumors
Earlier this year we reported on a tip that we found online about the iPhone 7 getting a dual-camera set up instead of a single camera like we have seen in the iPhone 6 family of smartphones. The dual-camera option is valuable for a number of reasons. Most importantly the dual-camera setup will allow for approximately 5x optical zoom from a smartphone. This is a huge feat considering that unlike most digital cameras, the iPhone will not have any moving parts. In addition to that, the dual-camera set up allows for much higher clarity in short and far distances. The iPhone 7 is expected to have lots of cool software come with it out of the box that will help users connect with this new way of taking photos and videos. Here's an explanation on how dual-camera ...

Google Data Centers
Featuring biometric eye-scanners, overheard power distributions, laser intrusion detection and all kinds of James-Bondy high-tech features: Google's data centers.
It's worth noting that Google is trying to make forward positive feedback loops that would improve the sustainability of their work. Data centers consume an enormous amount of energy and generate a tremendous amount of heat. This Google Data center featured above produces enough heat to necessitate an external water cooling plant built into their data center directly. Google has gone so far as to purchase wind farms to support some data centers and then they sell the left over power back into the community grid at a discounted price to the local community it serves. Google is also pioneering the redevelopment of the United States internet infrastructure and offers their practices on renewable energy as a template for ...
