Paper lives: Little Printer and the rebirth of the hard copy
Inside the company that makes your life front page news, and the soulful gadget it designed to do the job

Well, hello there, little fella.

This idea sounded out-of-date when first announced, but watch the interview. You’ll see the creator, Matt Webb, does a really good job selling it.

At its gleaming store, RadanMac offers the latest Apple gear - the new iPad, iPhones, iPods, laptops, all-in-one desktop computers and more.
But this is no ordinary Apple store. It’s in Tehran, where Apple and other U.S. computer products are banned under U.S. sanctions that have been in place for years.
Despite the embargo, RadanMac is one of an estimated 100 stores in the Iranian capital that openly sell Apple products, often at little more than U.S. prices.
“Business has been booming for the last three years,” said Majid Tavassoli, the store’s owner, in a phone interview. He said his company employs more than 20 staffers and has been supplying Apple products to Iranian buyers since 1995.
The company also has a servicing unit and a business sales arm whose clients have included the Central Bank of Iran, state television channels, newspapers and design professionals.

Meanwhile in the U.S., Apple Store managers in Atlanta are going after customers that speak Farsi. (It’s worth noting, by the way, that the machine on the left is not an iPad, but an iMac model that’s about a decade old.)

Samsung Electronics defeated Apple in the latest spat in the rivals’ patent wars when a British judge ruled Samsung’s Galaxy tablets did not infringe the U.S. company’s designs for the iPad because they were “not as cool.”
In Monday’s High Court judgment Judge Colin Birss said that Samsung’s Galaxy tablets belonged to the same family as the Apple design when viewed from the front, but the Samsung products were “very thin, almost insubstantial members of that family with unusual details on the back.”
“They do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design. They are not as cool,” he said. “The overall impression produced is different.”

Motion detection for your computer: This thumb drive-sized piece of technology will allow users to “completely control your computer by waving your hands around like Tom Cruise in Minority Report.” For $70, the Leap will plug into your USB drive and will provide touchless control of your laptop/computer of choice. The Leap website states: “It sounds too good to be true, we know. But, that’s what we specialize in around here.” It also claims that the device is 200 times more accurate than the Kinect bar and tracks “movements to the 1/100th of a millimeter.” We can’t wait to look like idiots! source

The Evolution of Storage

If you haven’t already seen this Evolution of Storage infographic, take a look. It’s beautiful and fun, and it has me thinking about the way we live.


The graphic falls apart on the right side, as the graphs stop following the key, but the infographic is pretty fascinating nonetheless.
