  • I'm going to preface this by saying that I only looked at true on-demand streaming services for this comparison.

  • According to Dutch fashion designer Borre Akkersdijk there is no such thing as wearable technology. “Wearable technology does not exist at all,” says Akkersdijk. “It’s carry-able technology.” He believes that the current generation of pedometers, augmented glasses, and other gizmos we clip to our clothing mean to solve important problems, but he’s not sure they do so as well as they could.

     

  • Internet of Things as the combination of sensors, a network, and actuators. The “wow” factor — the magic that makes us call it an Internet of Things application — can come from creatively amping up the power of any of the three elements.

  • In one of the most extreme scenarios being discussed in Europe and the U.S., Russia could be locked out of Swift, the Belgium-based international money-transfer system, as happened to Iran in 2012. That would cripple Russia’s banking system.

  • "Mao Zedong has been lionized in dozens and dozens of Chinese films, but never criticized. It's about time. You got to make a movie about Mao, about the Cultural Revolution. You do that, you open up, you stir the waters and you allow true creativity to emerge in this country. That would be the basis of real co-production," said Stone, speaking at a panel on co-production which also included

  • This is a relic of the Chinese Qing Dynasty, and is made of pure silver. Inlaid in a ring like a decoration, the size of the abacus is 1 cm×0.5 cm. It has seven rods and on each rod there are seven beads. With a diameter of less than 1mm, the little beads are not made of filamentary silver, because they have no seams even when being examined under a microscope. More surprisingly, the beads can be moved easily and smoothly along the silver rods. For operating this tiny abacus, fingertips are too big. It seems that the beads can only be moved by small tools such as pins. However, this is no problem for this abacus’s primary user—the ancient Chinese lady, for she only needs to pick one from her many hairpins.
