TO INFINITY AND PAST! Jk jk– just to the moon and back.
Startup company Golden Spike is appealing industrial trips to the moon by 2020, charging $ 800-million a seat per round journey excursion. No word if they’ll offer deals on one-way tickets. \* tries Pricelining a ticket for $ 200 \* Dammit, they didn’t accept. I’ll go $ 250.
Each area exploration consists of a surface remain time of a minimum of 36 hours (surpassing the stay times of both Apollo 11 and Apollo 12), 2 moonwalks (EVAs), using a common area expedition tool kit and cameras and optional add-on plans, accommodation of up to 50 kg of lunar experiments and other customer-provided equipment (e.g., flags, plaques, etc.) to the area, along with the additional accommodation of up to 50 kg of lunar samples for return to Earth, together with all necessary governmental certifications. Orbital explorations [ a less expensive choice at just $ 450 million per seat ] offer a week-long stay time.
I suggest cool, I simply, you understand, will certainly never have the ability to manage that. $ 800-million? I have a hard time even IMAGINING that much cash. Are you enabled to split seats if you sit on someone’s lap? Since if so all we require to do is stack 10,000 individuals to obtain the cost down to $ 80,000. I call dibs on not sitting on some dude’s peen!
Hit the jump for a picture of the proposed flight routine and a promotional video..

When Google initially launched its first dedicated Gmail app for iOS last year, it was a buggy embarrassment that did not have numerous of the crucial components found in Android’s Gmail client– or other genuine mail customer. While Google eventually settled many of the bugs, it was still basically a glorified web client– it might have helped light Gmail use, but it was tough to suggest over more fully-featured applications like Sparrow or even Apple’s default Mail app.
Nevertheless, Google’s been offering its iOS apps even more love recently. The recently-redesigned Google + app stands as the best-designed application the business has actually released for iOS, and the new Google Search application is likewise full-featured. On the surface, Gmail for iOS 2.0 appears to follow suit– …
Question by usedup: What company could be called the most promising developer of OLED technology?
OLED screens, have been predicted to really starting blooming in the next 2-3 years, making plasmas and LCDs old technology. Something I’ve been trying to figure, is what stocks will be blooming with them.
Answer by Lorita
 Sony applications
Sony 11-inch OLED, released in Japan at the end of 2007
Sony 11-inch OLED, released in Japan at the end of 2007
At the Las Vegas CES 2007, Sony showcased 11-inch (28 cm, resolution 1,024Ã—600) and 27-inch (68.5 cm, full HD resolution at 1920Ã—1080) models claiming million-to-one contrast ratio and total thickness (including bezels) of 5 mm. Sony released a commercial version of this television in Japan in December, 2007.
Sony plans to begin manufacturing 1000 11-inch OLED TVs per month for market testing purposes.
Sony has begun selling an 11-inch OLED Digital TV (XEL-1) for $ 2499.99 CAN
On May 25, 2007, Sony publicly unveiled a video of a 2.5-inch flexible OLED screen which is only 0.3 millimeters thick. The screen displayed images of a bicycle stunt and a picturesque lake while the screen was flexed.
On October 1, 2007, Sony announced it will sell 11-Inch OLED TVs for 200,000 yen (1,962.51 USD as of 4/1/08) from December 2007, only in Japan  and with an initial production of 2000 units per month.
On April 16, 2008, at “Display 2008″, Sony showed a 0.2 mm (0.0079 inch) thick 3.5 inch display with a resolution of 320×200 pixels and a 0.3 mm thick 11 inch display with 960×540 pixels resolution. That’s one-tenth the thickness of the XEL-1 (which is also 11 inch and the same resolution). 
On July 10, 2008, The Japanese government is backing Sony, Toshiba, Sharp, Matsushita Electric and some other companies in joint research of OLED TV Panels.
An agency set up for encouraging research, The New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization, or NEDO, said in a statement Thursday it has chosen the companies with the aim of developing a 40-inch OLED display sometime after 2015.).
 Other companies
The Optimus Maximus keyboard developed by the Art. Lebedev Studio and released early 2008 uses 113 48Ã—48-pixel OLEDs (10.1Ã—10.1 mm) for its keys.
OLEDs can be used in High-Resolution Holography (Volumetric display). Professor Orbit showed on May 12, 2007, EXPO Lisbon the potential application of these materials to reproduce three-dimensional video.
OLEDs could also be used as solid-state light sources. OLED efficacies and lifetime already exceed those of incandescent light bulbs, and OLEDs are investigated worldwide as a source of general illumination; an example is the EU OLLA project.
On March 11, 2008 GE Global Research demonstrated the first successful roll-to-roll manufactured OLED, marking a major milestone towards cost effective production of commercial OLED technology. The 4 year, $ 13 million research project was carried out by GE Global Research, Energy Conversion Devices, Inc and the U.S. Commerce Departmentâ€™s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). 
Chi Mei EL Corp of Tainan, Taiwan, demonstrated a 25″ Low-Temperature Polycrystalline silicon Active Matrix OLED at the Society of Information Displays (SID) conference in Los Angeles, CA, USA on May 20-22, 2008.
 Commercial uses
OLED technology is used in commercial applications such as small screens for mobile phones and portable digital audio players (MP3 players), car radios, digital cameras, and high-resolution microdisplays for head-mounted displays. Such portable applications favor the high light output of OLEDs for readability in sunlight, and their low power drain. Portable displays are also used intermittently, so the lower lifespan of OLEDs is less important here. Prototypes have been made of flexible and rollable displays which use OLED’s unique characteristics. OLEDs have been used in most Motorola and Samsung color cell phones, as well as some Sony Ericsson phones, notably the Z610i, and some models of the Sony Walkman. It is also found in the Creative Zen V/V Plus series of MP3 players. Nokia has also introduced recently some OLED products, including the 7900 Prism and Nokia 8800 Arte.
On October 1st, 2007, Sony became the first company to announce an OLED television.The XEL-1 11″ OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) Digital Television sells for $ 2499.99 in Canada (as of April 24, 2008). They are available in the United States at select Sony Style stores for US$ 2499.99.
Newer OLED applications include signs and outdoor lighting.
The second-generation flash-based Clix mp3 player, released in April 2007 by iRiver, displays video on a 320×240 2.2″ AMOLED screen of 262K colors.
Samsung unveiled a 31-inch OLED TV at the January 2008 CES in Las Vegas and is promising much larger screens to come. â€œWe have the technological ability to make 40-inch OLED,â€ said a spokesman, before adding that it wonâ€™t be until 2010 that the company will be in a position to mass produce such panels.
Use of OLEDs may be subject to patents held by Eastman Kodak and others. Kodak has licensed its patents to other firms such as LG for commercialization.
What do you think? Answer below!
The electric Kangoo is Renault’s version of Ford Transit Connect Electric. Its a small van on a car frame and is very popular in the commercial fleets. Think of it as a vehicle for people who drive less than 100 miles per day and park their vehicles in the same spot every night. It doesn’t offer the most flexibility for everyone, but for some it’s quite promising, except for certain rental fees.
It’s available for order right now in France with delivers later this year in July. The electric motor produces 59 hp with 167-lbs/ft of torque and the battery capacity is 22 kWh. The official range is 100 miles, though maxing out the 1,430 lb payload will probably reduce range. The batteries, housed underneath the floor, have the exact same cells in use by the Nissan Leaf. Sounds pretty good, right? Except the nearly $ 32,000 price tag doesn’t include a battery, and you cannot buy one.
So how does the car actually..um..run? Well, you have to rent the battery; it costs $ 1,500 a year. So while the burden of paying for gas is gone, it costs an additional $ 125 a month, even if you don’t drive it. However, it’s not all sad news. Those who will use it as a work truck in a fleet can almost guarantee that the battery will always work — once it dies, you just rent another.
