This is clever and as a (newly suffering) Amazon shareholder I am impressed. This is a great way to get game developers to migrate to Amazon Web Services (AWS) is so called ‘Cloud’ play. and AWS is what helps Amazon generate decent profits. I don’t think many people have worked out the significance of this but this was strategic.

HUGE Up To $550 Discounts By Canon On Digital Cameras — Check It Out.

If I was still in the market for a Canon, and the only Canon that even vaguely appeals to me these days being the G5 X, I would be all over this — though interestingly (and logically) the G5 X, being rather hot, is not being discounted. Some great values here. The 7D Mk II bundle and the M3 with EVF & 18-55 mm look real good — and, I just checked, these prices are ALREADY reflected at Amazon.

Periodic Table Game: How Many “In My Element” Can YOU Make, Other Than Beer & Wine.

by Anura Guruge


Yesterday was the 182nd birth anniversary of Dmitri Mendeleev, the creator of the Periodic Table — and Google commemorated it, albeit just in a few countries, with quite a nice Google Doodle.

And then there is this VERY CLEVER “Periodically I am in my Element” T-shirt — the ‘element’ in this case Be (4) + ER (68).

Got me thinking, what OTHER ‘elements’ that we would LIKE to be in can we create using the symbols? I even provide you with a Periodic Table right here.

Yes, if I use 3 symbols I can make MY element: W (74) + I (53) + Ne (10) = WINE. Yes, that makes me HAPPY (in every sense).

I guess because of its connotation as the unknown value there is NO ‘X‘, though there is indeed an Xe (54). So that makes it hard to make my most favorite element though I can get a head start with Se (34).

Go ahead. See what YOU can make it. Enjoy.
