PBworks PBworks (formerly PBwiki[2]) is a commercial real-time collaborative editing (RTCE) system created by David Weekly, with Ramit Sethi and Nathan Schmidt, who joined shortly thereafter as co-founders. Based in San Mateo, California,[1] United States, the company operates on a freemium basis, offering basic features free of charge and more advanced features for a fee.[3] PBworks' investors include Mohr Davidow Ventures[4] and the Seraph Group, as well as angel investors Ron Conway and Chris Yeh.[5] History[edit] In 2005, David Weekly began developing software to build privately hosted wikis through a website, which he named "PeanutButterWiki"[6] The company's original name stems from the concept that "making a wiki is as easy as making a peanut butter sandwich".[7] The original beta test of PBworks was released for public comment on 31 May 2005.[8] The site was formally launched in June 2005.

The "Shuffle" is actually a battery pack and the earbud is an LED light.

Google URL Shortener Posted by Michael Hermanto, Software Engineer, Firebase We launched the Google URL Shortener back in 2009 as a way to help people more easily share links and measure traffic online. Since then, many popular URL shortening services have emerged and the ways people find content on the Internet have also changed dramatically, from primarily desktop webpages to apps, mobile devices, home assistants, and more. To refocus our efforts, we're turning down support for over the coming weeks and replacing it with Firebase Dynamic Links (FDL). FDLs are smart URLs that allow you to send existing and potential users to any location within an iOS, Android or web app.

Flowerpot Container in pottery or plastic in which flowers and plants are grown Jiffy pots: peat pots that are biodegradable and may be planted directly into the soil For seedling starting in commercial greenhouses or polytunnels, pots usually take the form of trays with cells, each cell acting as one small pot. These trays are often called flats. There are usually holes in the bottom of pots, to allow excess water to flow out,[1] sometimes to a saucer that is placed under the flowerpot. The plant can use this water with its roots, as needed. Motivational Posters from lauren and FOD Team I got another good forward from McKay . Which one should we frame for his office? Wireless patches could provide "acupuncture" on demand For a good 2,000 years or so, many people have sworn by acupuncture as a means of relieving aches and pains, and treating various other disorders. In order to receive treatment, however, they have had to go to clinics and get jabbed with needles. Now, New York College of Health Professions chairman Donald Spector has created a wirelessly-controlled wearable skin patch, that he claims is able to deliver acupuncture-like treatment on demand. Acupuncture works (or is said to work, depending on who you ask) by stimulating key points in the body through the precise insertion of thin steel needles. The stimulation of these points reportedly corrects imbalances in the flow of energy – or qi – through the body. Already, people can buy adhesive patches with pointy studs on the underside, that continuously exert pressure on acupuncture points when applied to the skin.

Oldest Bird Was Actually a Dinosaur - For 150 years, Archaeopteryx held the "world's oldest known bird" record, but scientists now believe this animal was a dinosaur. - A new, small dinosaur from China shares traits with Archaeopteryxand likely evolved from it. - Many dinosaurs experimented with flight and feathers, but only some evolved into birds and survived extinction. Apowersoft Free Online Screen Recorder review Apowersoft produces two screen recorders. The first, which we're reviewing here, is a web-based tool that runs in your browser, while the other (accessed on the same site by clicking 'Download desktop version') is a premium application that's only available as a limited free trial unless you buy a subscription. Apowersoft Free Online Screen Recorder is completely free to use, with no time limitations, paywalls or watermarks. However, although it runs in your web browser, you'll still need to download and install a small launcher application before you can use it. Click 'Start recording' and follow the instructions (it works for both Windows and macOS). You'll be presented with a recording toolbar, and the centre of your screen will be selected by default.

Technology The same image data drives both RGB stripe and PenTile RGBW™ displays. However, conventional RGB stripe displays render (draw) images by assigning a color and luminance (brightness) to an entire RGB-triplet as a whole pixel, adjusting its three RGB subpixels to set a single addressable point. Images on a PenTile RGBW™ panel are subpixel rendered, meaning they are drawn at the subpixel level (the individual points of light), rather than to the whole pixels of an RGB stripe display. In fact "pixels" in the traditional sense have been eliminated in PenTile RGBW™ displays; individual subpixels are not restricted to use in one pixel group, but instead participate in multiple "logical" pixels in their surrounding vicinity. Subpixel rendering dramatically increases addressability and enables the sophisticated image processing used in PenTile RGBW™ displays.

FRIDA Robot will Make your Gadget Meet FRIDA – a two handed concept robot for industrial assembly applications. This striking creation might be able to bridge the gap between fully manual assembly and fully automated manufacturing lines. The Frida project was started back in 2007 with a core team of Swiss researchers from ABB team that was then complemented by other teams from Sweden, Norway, Germany, the United States and China. Martian Rivers and Lakes Giant cracks that crisscross to form polygons have been imaged on the floors of hundreds of Martian impact craters by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Scientists have been aware of them for years, but assumed they resulted from the expansion and contraction of the craters’ floors due to temperature fluctuations. A closer look at the Martian crater polygons shows cracks on both large and small size scales. The larger cracks are more than 100 metres long and up to 10 metres wide. Some of the craters may have hosted lakes billions of years ago when the Martian climate allowed liquid water to exist on the surface for extended periods.
