|Ara's Run In With a Google Car|
For the past few weeks I have been seeing the Google street view car driving around the neighborhood. Today as I pulled into the local Starbucks it was parked right out front and I thought what a great opportunity to take a few photos and give everyone a chance to learn about the technology behind it. I am sure by now most, if not all of you have used Google Maps' Street View feature. Some may think this is satellite imagery but the technology behind it is simple at the surface.
The current Google Street View car has 15 lenses taking 360 degrees of photos. It uses motion sensors to track its position via GPS and a hard drive to store the data. There is a small computer running the entire system, and lasers are used to capture 3D data to determine distances and depth of field within the Street View. In addition to the car, Google also has a trike, snowmobile and a trolley to capture images in places cars can't access.
Google uses the car to access public roads and also uses face and license plate blurring technology for privacy. Once the images are captured, it takes Google a few months to process the images at their lab and make the
images available online for your viewing pleasure. It's a very useful tool, especially when going to a meeting or a place you have not visited before; you can easily identify landmarks near your destination.

|Wireless: The New Wired LAN|
|The technology behind the wireless LAN is evolving so quickly that even before the new round of drastically faster speeds become available, there is already talk of even faster wireless speeds.|
Last year, wireless providers bragged about their next-generation products that would increase data rates from 802.11a/g's 54 Mbps to 802.11a/g's 600 Mbps. But there is already discussion of wireless connectivity reaching speeds of 1 Gbps, and to top that, speeds are expected to reach 7 Gbps in the foreseeable future.
For the time being, companies need to keep these advancements in mind when making changes or upgrades to their networks so that they will be able to support these technologies when the time comes.
|Stuxnet: A Weapon of Mass Destruction|
|Last year, the Stuxnet virus infiltrated five Iranian organizations including nuclear facilities. The virus has the capability to shut down centrifuges that spin nuclear material at Iran's enrichment facilities.|
Stuxnet is said to be the first weapon to be made of code. Furthermore, the code for Stuxnet is accessible to anyone; it can be downloaded and redesigned.
Consequently, Iran has openly formed the second largest online army by asking hackers to join their revolutionary guard.

|Steve Jobs Presents the new Apple Headquarters to Cupertino City Council |
|"It's a little like a spaceship landed"|
In June, Steve Jobs stood before Cupertino's City Council to propose ideas for Apple's new campus. We must say the concepts behind it are amazing!
The building will have the capacity to hold 13,000 people and will resemble a spaceship; the revolutionary architecture and design will break construction barriers with its100% curved glass look and underground parking. The new building will also add to the environment as Jobs has proposed to double the number of trees on the property.
"We do have a shot at building the best office building in the world," Jobs said modestly, adding that there won't be a straight piece of glass in it. "Architecture students will come here to see this."
