My iPad has come in to its own since I downloaded the Longform app, which shoots brilliantly selected long articles at you. It's productive procrastination at its best. One gem is the story of Daniel Kish - the blind man who 'sees' with sonar.
"The first thing Daniel Kish does, when I pull up to his tidy gray bungalow in Long Beach, California, is make fun of my driving. “You’re going to leave it that far from the curb?” he asks. He’s standing on his stoop, a good 10 paces from my car. I glance behind me as I walk up to him. I am, indeed, parked about a foot and a half from the curb."
Bewilderingly impressive.

This is a fantastic animation. Equally engaging is the Making Of, if that's your thing

This video about measuring the universe is well worth a watch, if because it is one of the best examples I've seen of crystal clear communication of fairly complex ideas. Deceptively smart.

  27. This is obvious that for the non-technical person it is not that easy to do the process of download, install and set up the process of the HP printer software. As a non-technical person, I can say it with surety because I am right now facing this condition. Actually, I have been facing some technical issues in the setup process of the Hp printer software. Someone suggested me a website called 123.hp/setup  for the guide of the setup process. I also visited the site and find it reliable and it’s information useful.
