Extended Availability on Windows 7, Teleportation Progress, Phelps Won't Defend His Medals at London

Labels: , , ,

I am so tired right now. I woke up at 11 a.m. this morning and have been pretty much studying ever since i got up. So far, my progress in studying for this Chemistry exam is terrible. I figured that i just needed to take a break. At around 3:40 p.m. i ran to the mall [and back home] because i had to get a card for my mother's birthday, which is tomorrow. We have been on good terms ever since the incident on Christmas Day. Anyways, i might as well get talking about the usual stuff. Even though i want to take a long and well-needed sleep. I'm looking forward to a good night's sleep on Monday, after editing and posting on my new blog!

Just in case you still haven't tried out or downloaded and burned the Windows 7 Beta yet, Microsoft is pushing the availability date again. The last day was supposed to be today [January 24, 2009], but Microsoft announced that they will be letting users download the Windows 7 Beta until February 10, 2009. That's good news for everyone. If you're on Windows Vista right now, i suggest that you try this wonderful and surprisingly stable [and fast] beta. It's one that you'll regret downloading. Luckily, i have the ISO file burned on a CD. On a side note, this picture (above) is from Engadget's site, where i got this article from. As you can see, the author of this article from Engadget uses Google Chrome. Engadget, which is also one of my favourite sites, is one of the most visited tech-sites on the Internet right now. And hey, if they're using Google Chrome, why shouldn't you make the switch? Just a suggestion.

Let's start off with a direct quote off of Gizmodo, which is also one of my favourite sites. "A team at the University of Maryland was able to successfully teleport a quantum state from one atom to another over the distance of a meter." Talk about incredible! Yes, i know, it's only a meter, but it is progress. This is another leap in the science department and maybe before i die, i'll be able to teleport from one place to another. Although, i would probably have to pay to do so. Still, it sounds like great progress.

We all should know who Michael Phelps is. Just in case you somehow don't, he is the swimmer who won 8 medals at the Summer Olympics that were held in Beijing. Anyways, he recently said that he will not be participating in 8 events at the next Olympics, which is in 2012 at London. His choice may have been a tough one, but he mentions that he wants to enjoy his experience at the Olympics this time around. He wants to spend some time cheering in the stands, instead of following his daily routine at Beijing 2008, which was "eat, sleep, swim; eat, sleep, swim."

Sorry for the lack of tech news lately, these past few days have been quite a rush for me, due to exams. On Monday, i will finally be free from all of this studying.
