What’s Hot:

We’ve gotten so used to our smartphones that we aren’t the least bit impressed with the technology that makes them work. The translucent material can do the same thing for the budget iPhone what it did for the iMac G3: open up our eyes as to the incredible advances in computing that have been made and make people excited about buying a phone again.

I’m really digging this concept iPhone.

NASA:

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has delivered a glorious view of Saturn, taken while the spacecraft was in Saturn’s shadow. The cameras were turned toward Saturn and the sun so that the planet and rings are backlit. (The sun is behind the planet, which is shielding the cameras from direct sunlight.) In addition to the visual splendor, this special, very-high-phase viewing geometry lets scientists study ring and atmosphere phenomena not easily seen at a lower phase.

Stunning.

This Picasso-like self-portrait of NASA’s Curiosity rover was taken by its navigation cameras, located on the now-upright mast. The camera snapped pictures 360-degrees around the rover, while pointing down at the rover deck, up and straight ahead. Those images are shown here in a polar projection.

“Things which are different in order simply to be different are seldom better, but that which is made to be better is almost always different.” — Dieter Rams

This reminds me a lot of Steve Jobs’s answer to a question about being different:

I don’t think it’s good that Apple’s perceived as different. I think it’s important that Apple is perceived as much better. If being different is essential to doing that, then we have to do that. But if we could be much better without being different, that would be fine with me. I want to be much better.

Daring Fireball: Surface: Between a Rock and a Hardware Place -

I share John Gruber’s feelings about Microsoft’s Surface event:

Watching the Microsoft Surface event video, I sensed uneasiness. Not panic, but discomfort. Some will argue that I’m simply spoiled by Apple’s on-stage polish, but Monday’s Microsoft event struck me as rushed and severely under-rehearsed.

This is actually the craziest chart about Apple following their insane earnings today.
There is exactly one company on that entire list that is not an oil and gas company. And they’re not that far from the top.
