Six different topics: (1)The growing number of cheap low-end eyeglass-style computer displays, and why they are good for privacy, but not resolution. (2) A poorly written article about an important topic: Life Extension. (3) NASA has released the clearest photos of Pluto ever, and they are impressive. (4) A groundbreaking new professional video camera that can take beautiful full-color, HD movies with nothing more than starlight for illumination. (5) Mozilla has announced that the FireFox browser will no longer have ads built into it. And (6) a new discovery about the chemicals the human nervous system uses to transmit pain signals. This discovery may lead to pain killers that are far more effective than anything existing today, such as morphine, and yet be non-addictive & produce "zero numbness."
