This morning Apple released iOS 5 for the iPhone, iPad and other iOS devices.  An update to iTunes became available as well.  Since new technology can be overwhelming  and confusing for some people, LifeHacker, one of my favorite websites, has got you covered. They have provided the steps to setting up your iDevice’s Wi-Fi Sync, iCloud, and Notification Center. There is also a handy video that tells you everything you need to know about iOS  5 in Seven Minutes.   Be sure to listen to next week’s SSWL for my full review on Apple’s iOS 5.

Have you already played with iOS 5?  Do you like it or hate it? Comment below.

I’m sure everyone has already heard, but I am sad to report that Steve Jobs has passed away.  We knew he had a lot of health issues, and you can read about it HERE. The first time I used an Apple computer was in elementary school.  The Apple II was the first computer that help me learn how to type.  Jobs was a visionary and an innovator.  The Apple fanboy & fangirls will miss him.

After the break, is a video of Jobs talking to Standford University. It’s title “Steve Jobs: How to live before you die”

Print Blood Vessels

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?
