Must Women choose between science and femininity?  Are we really choosing?  I was going through recent tweets by WITI (Women in Technology international) and I came upon an article re-tweeted by them titled:  ‘New Report Says Girls Feel They Must Choose Between Femininity and Sciences

The article states that boys and girls perform equally in math and science testing when they begin elementary school, and show about the same level of enjoyment of the subjects. However, by 8th grade, twice as many more boys than girls, are interested in STEM careers, (i.e. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).

Kinect for xBox marries Robotics and Da Vinci.  We are hurdling concurrently towards “a future age”, and one area of technology seems not only underdeveloped but also, to put it practically; disappointing.

Robotics as a whole is obviously consistently undergoing radical and amazing feats, but as a standard citizen of the world, I see very little of these advances in my day to day life. Sure, the Roomba is undeniably awesome, but where is the future I always imagined?

Wondering how the app evolved?  There’s a process to the app evolution!  Mobile technology has forever revolutionized the way we compute, predominantly via apps.  Above is a nice infographic illustrating the history and evolution of mobile apps.  For instance, the iPhone App Store has generated over 4 billion downloads, totaling over $3 billion in revenue –WOW!

The U.S. Treasury reported on Wednesday that it has an operating cash balance of $73.8 billion.  On the other hand, Apple (AAPL), the largest technology conglomerate in the world, has $76.2 billion in cash and marketable securities as of the end of the 2nd quarter.

The difference here is pretty clear to me: unlike the Unites States Treasury, Apple makes more money than it spends.

Sounds to me like the U.S. government ought to start selling iPads.
