The new season of The Walking Dead is coming soon.  Although I only read the first two trades, I can’t say I’m a big fan like some people.  However, I did like Robert Kirkman’s writing.  Last season they found the CDC, which they thought was the safe zone from the zombies.  Unfortunately, they turned out to be wrong.

**SPOILERS**

The season ended with the destruction of the CDC plant.  Before it was destroyed, the doctor told them that the French may have found a cure.  As much as I hate zombies, I can’t wait for this new season to begin.   Here is the trailer for the new season.  Are you excited? Comment below!

Nucky Thompson

I have been waiting for a long time for this. This show is one of the few that live up to the hype. We’ll get to see what nucky and the others were doing, when we last saw them. If you haven’t seen the first season, then you have missed a big part of the show. I have a link that talks about the first season and a little about the season 2 premiere. The article is by sarah richard from tv.com

Print Blood Vessels

By of Engadget

I was reading this and I thought it was an interesting idea on rebuilding the human body.

Barely 24 hours after we told you about printing your own bones, the franken-science continues with the announcement that blood vessels are next on the body-parts-you-can-print list. Unsurprisingly, you’ll need more than just regular toner if you want to start printing your own at home, but pioneering work by application-oriented research organization Fraunhofer has claimed to have cracked it by adding some good old ‘two-photon polymerization’ into the mix — yeah, obvious once you know. The added photon special sauce is what makes the printed synthetic tubes biofunctionalized, which in turn enables living body cells to dock onto them — we’re guessing that’s important. Sounds cute, but how long until we can start printing whole people — Weird Science, anyone?

Windows 8 Image

The internally code-named “Windows 8,”  is  reimagining Windows.  “The interface for a new generation of touch-centric hardware. Fast, fluid and dynamic, the experience has been transformed while keeping the power, flexibility and connectivity of Windows intact” , said Juile Larson-Green.

Here are a few aspects of the new interface :

Fast launching of apps from a tile-based Start screen, which replaces the Windows Start menu with a customizable, scalable full-screen view of apps.
Live tiles with notifications, showing always up-to-date information from your apps.
Fluid, natural switching between running apps.
Convenient ability to snap and resize an app to the side of the screen, so you can really multitask using the capabilities of Windows.
Web-connected and Web-powered apps built using HTML5 and JavaScript that have access to the full power of the PC.
Fully touch-optimized browsing, with all the power of hardware-accelerated Internet Explorer 10.

“We also showed effortless movement between existing Windows programs and new Windows 8 apps. The full capabilities of Windows continue to be available to you, including the Windows Explorer and Desktop, as does compatibility with all Windows 7 logo PCs, software and peripherals.”
