In this video I compare three of the biggest smartphone platforms, iOS for the Apple iPhone, Google Android and Microsoft Windows Phone 7. Each have their individual strengths and weaknesses so here I sum up each.

The North Carolina Science Festival kicks off on September 11th. With hundreds of events scattered across the entire state, there’s something for everyone at the first of its kind festival.
One event of particular interest to most GeekDad readers is “An Afternoon with Adam and Jamie.” On September 19th at the Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill, MythBusters Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman will discuss their enviable careers, share behind-the-scenes stories and outtakes, and even screen a video of the show’s more spectacular explosions. They’ll also be taking questions from the audience.
Adam and Jamie can probably appreciate the theme of the festival: “Life is your lab.” The rest of the festival centers around this idea and features tons of cool hands-on science events in various locations across the state:
- Come face-to-face with all things creepy and crawly at Bugfest (North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, Raleigh).
- Check out the biggest exhibit of shell collections in North Carolina (Cape Fear Museum of History and Science, Wilmington).
- Explore the science of wine making (Shelton Vineyards, Dobson).
- Build an electromagnet (Imagination Station, Wilson).
- Take a guided bird walk (Jackson Park, Hendersonville).
- Tour a coastal research station (US Army Corps of Engineers Field Research Facility, Duck).
- Learn how movie professionals create special effects (Museum of Life and Science, Durham).
The festival runs from September 11-26. Event locations, prices and details can be found at the NC Science Festival website.
Keep an eye out for more coverage from the NC Science Festival and look for GeekDad at the events!

Olympus has revealed two new lenses today, both for the Micro Four Thirds format. One is a 40-150mm Æ’4.0-5.6 which will sell for just â‚¬330 when it is launched in October. This has a silent AF-motor for movie-shooting but is otherwise rather pedestrian thanks to those mediocre maximum apertures.
The other lens is way more interesting. It too has rather poor light-gathering abilities when wide-open (Æ’4.8-6.7), but that is excusable as it runs from 75-300mm. In 35mm terms, that’s a 150-600mm monster. Still not impressed? The lens weighs just 430-grams (15-ounces) and is only 116mm (4.6-inches) long.
For comparison, look at some SLR lenses. Nikon’s longest reaching zoom is the 200-400mm Æ’4, which weighs 3360-grams or a wrist-breaking 7.4-pounds and measures 365mm or 14.4-inches. That, though, is still short of the Olympus’ 600mm far-end. To get to that number, you need to choose a prime lens from Nikon.
The Nikkor 600mm Æ’4 weighs five kilos (11-pounds) and is a John Holmesian 166mm (17.5-inches) in length. To put that in perspective, the diameter of the Nikon is almost four times the length of the Olympus. Also, the Nikon will cost you $10,300.
This astonishing difference is due only to the lack of a mirror in the Micro Four Thirds cameras, and the smaller sensor (half the size of a 35mm-frame and around two-thirds the size of a typical DSLR). These lenses would have been possible on Leica rangefinders, too, but were impractical as there was no way to see through the lens and frame your shot. Digital live-view has changed that.
The 75-300mm Olympus will cost just â‚¬900 ($1,140, but certainly less when sold in the US) and will be in stores in December.

One of the best games from the Dreamcast is finally getting a proper sequel: Bangai-O! Those who played it remember it fondly; a version for Nintendo DS was released, but (despite being pretty good) it didn’t really have the same savor as the original. I have a feeling this new one is going to be the sequel I’ve been hoping for.
It’s called Bangai-O HD Missile Fury, and the developers promise “sensory overload of thousands of missiles.” It should debut at PAX this weekend. Hell yes.
