” O, I pass away, Horatio; / The potent toxin rather o’er-crows my spirit: / I can not live to hear the news from England; / However I do prophesy the election lights / On Fortinbras: he has my dying voice; / So see your man, with the occurrents, more and less, / Which have actually gotten. The rest is silence.”
Spoiler: Hamlet dies.

CLASSIC: The Old ‘Sealed Bottle Of Liquid Nitrogen In A Trashcan Full Of Ping Pong Balls’ Experiment
This is a video of Plymouth University professor Roy Lowry putting a bottle of sealed fluid nitrogen in a trashcan, then covering the container with 1,500 ping-pong balls. Just what occurs next? Absolutely nothing I ever before got to witness in any of my lame-ass science classes, I could tell you that. Although one time a professor did break clear wind throughout an examination and told us he would certainly give us all A’s if we promised not to discuss it on social media. I LIED HARD.
Hit the jump, but skip to 3:30 unless you in fact wish to discover something.

It was a huge week for superlatives in clean tech and green architecture– especially in Europe. First, building on The Shard, architect Renzo Piano‘s shimmering, 72-story skyscraper, wrapped up in London, making it the tallest building in Europe. A nighttime celebration, complete with a laser light show accompanied by the London Philharmonic Orchestra was held. Merely about a mile down the river, construction is moving forward on Blackfriars Station, the globe’s largest solar bridge. The historic bridge is being fitted with a solar collection that will certainly produce 900,000 kWh of clean electrical power per year. And in Germany, solar producers have actually set a brand-new world record, pumping an amazing 14.7 TWh of electricity into the grid throughout the first 6 months of 2012– 4.5 percent of the nation’s absolute power manufacturing throughout that period.

Tim Cook acknowledged that Ping hadn’t been the greatest of successes for the company during his recent appearance at the D10 conference, and it appears the company is planning on ushering the social network out the door entirely. All Things D reports that the music-based service — which launched back in 2010 — will not be a part of the next major release of iTunes, which has been rumored to be debuting later this year. Instead, Apple will reportedly be relying on Facebook and Twitter for its social offerings. On Apple’s iOS 6 preview page, Ping is actually shown to be a part of the redesigned iTunes store, but it appears that may be changing sooner rather than later.

In this episode of the Gadget Lab podcast, Dylan Tweney and yours truly gawk over the amazing story of an abducted Japanese journalist who tricked his captors into allowing him to tweet from a soldier’s Nokia cellphone. Clever stuff.
In less impressive news, Apple’s new social music discovery Ping recently debuted on iTunes, and we’re not fans. The feature requires too much manual work, as it doesn’t automatically analyze your music library to generate recommendations like other services we’ve seen (e.g. Rdio). Lame!
While we’re on the subject of lameness, we’ve found that a number of Wired.com readers are hating on the new iTunes logo. (Only Apple fans would nitpick this sort of stuff.) So we’re hosting a contest asking you to redesign the iTunes logo for a chance to win a snazzy new iPod Shuffle.
We top off the episode with a weird case that turns your iPad into an expensive refrigerator magnet, enabling you to tweet whenever you grab a beer or watch YouTube videos while you’re cooking.

Gadget Lab Podcast: Tweeting From Jail, Ping and the Ugly iTunes Icon
What do you get when you connect your customers to each other? If the customers like your product (and I’d say 10 billions songs sold shows definite positive bias) you get more sales. This echo chamber is what everyone – from Facebook on down – is trying to create and while I don’t believe Apple will pull it off, I think Ping is the first step in the right direction for online sales.
First, take a gander at what El Gruber has to say about Ping. He notes: “One way or another, though, if Ping proves popular, it shouldnâ€™t remain focused solely on music.” He comes at the Ping question from a usability standpoint – shouldn’t there be a separate Ping app? Something completely disconnected from iTunes? In this way, Apple can add books, movies, apps, and the like to Ping and separate it from the lump of code called iTunes.
Ping isn’t perfect. I’m surprised its so clunky right now. However, it does point to better things down the road.
While Apple’s decision to stick Ping into the iTunes app is fairly elementary – it essentially traps users into the Ping way of thinking and when they see the tab they become curious, potentially signing up (I’m john at crunchgear dot com, BTW. Add me. I’d like to see what music you all like) – what we are really seeing is the first social shopping app that disguises itself as a social network inside a dedicate istore. It’s very meta.
Apple is great at co-opting concepts and tweaking them to maintain allegiance to their products. Take Genius Mixes, for example. Genius Mixes are, in short, a sort of Internet radio for non-connected devices. Genius Mixes constitute themselves out of your own music, some of which you probably haven’t listened to in months or years, and give you a new way of “discovering” artists. Genius Mixes work best on big libraries and where do those libraries come from? iTunes purchases or CD ripping or, dare I say it, piracy. But once Genius digs Cory Chisel out of your library to remind you that you like soulful singer-songwriters, you could go back to iTunes and buy more goodies. That’s the thinking, anyway.
But it’s easy to see the problem with Genius Mixes – they never send you back to iTunes. Instead, you orbit around your own collection. But along comes Ping and you’re now depending on friends for your new music discovery from within Ping and now Apple is guaranteed a sale.
So extrapolate a little and we see Ping for Apps, Ping for Books, Ping for Laptops, Ping for… Shoes? Perfume? Monkey Chow? I think the thought experiment here is how Apple can expand the Ping concept to other products and then how competitors can create similar networks around already existing sales systems. Note that Ping is bolted onto an e-store and not the other way around.
I doubt Apple will start selling monkey chow, but I’m sure its in someone’s interest to grab iTunes customers as quickly as possible. Could we see Katy Perry’s candy bustier for sale next to her latest hit? I dread the thought, but welcome the opportunity to see how many of my friends buy one.

That’s a third of the three million that have downloaded iTunes 10. You can expect that number to grow much higher, as “many more people” are likely to download iTunes.
The adoption is very rapid and is helped tremendously by Apple’s existing user base of course. With over 160 million iTunes owners using credit cards and so are guaranteed to be attached to an Apple ID, Ping will require very little effort to get a large portion of those users online.
It will be interesting to see how it grows.
