Another cool use for digital photography:
Here are some more pix taken from the ISS and the Shuttle.
The Boston Globe has been posting some great hi-res images from Nasa, including these from Mars. Go check them out.
What’s great about these Mars shots are that you can really relate to them. Mars really just looks like a place; nothing terribly alien about it. Somehow the Universe just got a little smaller.
But this one is one of the best optical illusions ever. Just “see” for yourself:
I’ve got a small article published over at the mobile blog, Palm Addict. Here’s an excerpt:
“Lately, my wife and I have been looking to buy an apartment in Brooklyn, NY. We’ve been going to a lot of open houses and making appointments with real estate brokers. Well, if I did not have my iPhone with me, this whole task would be a bigger pain than it already is. So, how is the iPhone helping? Let’s see.”

If you’re wondering just how fast your “high speed Internet” actually is, head on over to Speedtest.net. Here you can run both download and upload tests to see just what your ISP is actually giving you. You can compare your ISP’s speed to that of others in your region. Also, Speedtest remembers when you’ve run tests in the past, so you can see over time whether you are gaining or losing bandwidth and can get an overall average of your Internet speediness.
Pretty useful if you ask me.
