What’s New? : Engineers Like Dirt

What's New? covering what's new in tech, this week we take a look at The Art of Engineering - a lecture by James Dyson, inventor of the Dual Cyclone vacuum cleaner who talks about the design process.

In the late 1970s, Dyson noticed a cyclone tower for removing particles at a saw mill and was inspired to mock up a vacuum cleaner based on the same principles. It took 5, 127 prototypes and almost five years to build. "The 5, 126th failure taught me so much. Making mistakes is the most important thing you can do," says Dyson. "You don't get things by sitting at a drawing board or lying in a bath."

What’s New? : Redesigning the Past

What would you do if you could travel back in time? Assassinate Marilyn Monroe? Go on a date with Hitler? Obviously. But here’s what I’d do after that: grab all the modern technology I could find, take it to the late 70’s, superficially redesign it all to blend in, start a consumer electronics company to unleash it upon the world, then sit back as I rake in billions, trillions, or even millions of dollars.

What’s New? : Digital Afterlife?

What's New? covering what's new in tech…… we ask….

There are well defined legal, social, and religious traditions that come into play when our physical lives end that help decide how people remember us, and what happens to our property. Yet we also have digital lives, and their fates are much less understood and controlled. Facebook pages, Google, Twitter - all of these services exist in a legal murky ground after you die as most of these companies maintain rights to any public information you share through their sites. That can prove hectic to loved ones trying to tie up loose ends after someone has passed, but it also highlights a curious condition of the modern age: we may continue to live long after we die thanks to our online records. Are we creating a digital afterlife?

What's New? : Blocked in China

Check to see if a site is blocked by the Chinese government in Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong.

The Golden Shield Project (a.k.a. Great Firewall of China) is owned by the Government of China (MPS) and was started in 1998. The firewall system blocks website content by preventing IP addresses from being routed through and consists of standard firewall and proxy servers at the Internet gateways of China’s ISPs. The banning of websites is mostly uncoordinated and ad-hoc, with some web sites being blocked from one city and the same web sites being allowed from other cities and vice versa.

What’s New? : The New Non-Latin

To kick off this new feature of What’s New?, covering what’s new in tech- the Middle East is now represented on the internets!

The first Internet domain names using non-Latin characters are beingArolled out, a plan put into motion after approval from the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). Arabic-speaking nations are the first to reap the orthographic benefits, with new country codes available for Egypt (), Saudi Arabia (), and the United Arab Emirates (S). The Egyptian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, previously online at mcit.gov.eg, is blazing the trail with its new URL:A-SS.
