In iOS news it looks like v. 4.2 has been delayed once again, this time due to a wifi issue.

Links from the Gregg Zone

1) Going to start off with a new design in bicycles, hard to reinvent something as basic as a bicycle. I mean you can reinvent parts, new derailleur, news seat etc. but a completely new design seems difficult. Not to sure what the ride would be like on this, but it might solve some storage problems. And, any electric bike is great as far as I am concerned.

2) As long as I am on the subject of design outside of the box, how about an airplane with cifrular wings. Sometimes I see things that make me glad I am not a test pilot. This design may be ultra stable and very efficient but, I would rather it was around for a while before taking a ride.

3) This seems to fall into that category of observation causing reality. The entire area of physics dealing with this area is very challenging, but to me just fascinating. I have seen many similar things lately in the area of science.

4) Big announcement from NASA Monday, not to sure what is coming, but I am captivated by the possibilities. There seems to be some pre-hype going on whatever it is, that fact alone is enough to arouse my curiosity. Guess we will know tomorrow

5) Last up a geek link that has been hanging out in my this week folder for a couple of weeks now.
