Aerographite Is Now The Lightest Material Ever Constructed

Aerographite. That’s the name given to the lightest material ever made, with a density of less than 0.2 mg/cm³, it is mostly just hollow space but can support weight 35 times more than say, aerogel. And it can conduct electricity. Researchers at the Hamburg University of Technology and the University of Kiel, both in Germany, made it from a network of hollow carbon tubes grown at nano and micro scales, and soon enough, it could be all the rage in ultra lightweight construction building.

Digg Just Got Sold To Betaworks For Something North Of $500,000

Current CEO of Digg, Matt Williams, has told All Things D that Digg was sold for an amount more than $500,000 including cash and equity. The approximate number is unknown, but it is known that Digg has been declining rapidly in the last few years due to the unpopular 2010 redesign, which forced Kevin Rose, founder of Digg to resign from the company in March of 2011. Currently Digg sees something between 4.5 to 7 million unique visitors each month. Betaworks, the company that has purchased Betaworks will integrate the social networking service into, another service that compiles content for the user in the form of an app. Via: Wall Street Journal

HTC One X Review: Style, Power, And Great Technology All In One

Rocking it on the Porsche wheels. Clearly, there has been a lack of white, large smartphones with dual-core processors and HD screens, paired with the latest of 4G LTE data speed technology in the United States, so it’s the perfect spot for the HTC One X on AT&T to cover (even though it’s also available in gray). Being a manufacturer like HTC, known for some of the greatest smartphone designs, it takes a great deal to understand what is necessarily to knock back a very powerful and positively reviewed smartphone like the Galaxy S III — but the One X may have the exciting fighting chance, in this review.

Tweetbot for Mac alpha released, is pretty good

Tweetbot, one of the best looking iOS apps for Twitter ever released, just emerged on Mac as an alpha release available to the public. Everything is pretty much the same as it was on the iOS version, except now it’s oriented towards a mouse and a larger screen. You can get notifications and respond to tweets as well as RT them any way you like, just as you can on the iOS app. Now the only drawback: Mountain Lion or iCloud notifications aren’t ready yet; they will be when Tweetbot hits its official release.

Till then, the $199 locked bootloader version on Verizon seems like the more compelling offer, also considering that all other carriers offer the Galaxy S III with an unlocked bootloader, without the premium charge..
