Re: Anyone had any experience using borosilicate glass?

Maybe there is some information here that you may find useful:

They've also been very helpful when I've contacted them in the past; try to contact them to advise regarding your =/- .5mm tolerance.

Bras In Space

Ran across this really interesting article: http://www.thecredits.org/2013/09/bras-in-space-the-incredible-true-story-behind-upcoming-film-spacesuit/ "When we think of the Apollo 11 moon landing, what do we think of?

Re: Does quality sell the product?

Well, you know the saying - every Harbor Freight tool eventually becomes a hammer. I also agree that it all depends on how quality and value are defined for a particular product and to whom - target audience. I keep thinking of the original Dre Beats headphones in this conversation. At first, one wo...

Re: buying a range - soliciting advice

Gas burner is also visual and I can judge the amount of output by the height of the flame - low, medium, high. I haven't yet made the visual connection of low/medium/high on an electric coil burner, nor the numerical relationship to a digital readout telling me the temperature. Remember, a major par...

Re: Gold iphone???

I have a feeling Ballmer was the reason why the Nokia deal didn't happen. My guess is it will eventually happen and current Nokia CEO will replace Ballmer. Should be interesting especially with the Google Moto X now out. Speaking of which, ....."it seems Motorola has the iPhone 5 in its sights, not ...

Re: Gold iphone???

Apple is mainly a software company that also does (not too shabby) hardware. Ive working on OS seemed like a good move to me in this regard. Anyone see the Ellison interview on pbs the other day? I found it interesting where he said Apple would rather compete against Sony than Microsoft because Sony...

Re: Gold iphone???

You know what would be cool, is copper. It would develop a great patina as you handled it, then turn kind of disgusting right about when it's time to upgrade. I like this idea too! It could be like the Kaikado tea containers. Probably not a good business plan to ask your customers to not upgrade th...

Re: Neat car - Delta wing Le Mans racer

There's a good documentary out on this: Nissan Deltawing Documentary. Done last year I believe. Preview: wUR_nttsRr4 In the end (and it may have been inevitable anyways) the idea of doing more with less appears to be the direction of motorsport - F1, Le Mans. I think it's a big reason Honda chose to...

Re: Formula E- electric open wheeler championship

See, that's cool! The formula should allow for teams to have both options - change batteries or car. Hybrid is actually more interesting to me right now. F1 is changing the engine formula next year: http://blog.axisofoversteer.com/2013/06/2014-renault-energy-f1-power-plant.html And the Le Mans hybri...

Re: Formula E- electric open wheeler championship

I'd rather the formula be that they use 1 car and the batteries are changed during a pit stop, like tires and adding fuel. By changing cars, I think they're trying to promote electric car share in cities, as it appears all the races will be run in temporary city circuits. In a racing environment, gi...

Re: WIP: Photography Reimagined

Here's a book to check out if you haven't already:
http://www.amazon.com/Photography-Susan ... 0312420099

Lot's of debate about her thoughts and ideas about photography and it is quite interesting to read in light of how photos are taken and consumed today.

Good luck.

Re: Sickening...

The flush mounted, contour following, texture matching-power-button-on-the-back = horrible design. I have trouble finding it - my mother in-law and my mother whom I purchased iMacs for a year or so ago simply leave their machines on as they absolutely struggle to turn them on/off.
