When textiles get a tech makeover

3 Aug 2015 by Kavitha Srinivasa

Friends this is my first full-fledged post on textiles, as I'm otherwise caught up with blogs on entrepreneurs or R&D. Can't help it. Anyway, the warp and the weft of textiles caught my attention all thanks to a newspaper announcement. This announcement from the Maharashtra Government, textile department and industries department invites potential textile industrialists to invest in a Mega Textile Park at Nandgaon Peth in Amravati district.

It's the first new memory technology in 25...years, months or days?

28 Jul 2015 by Chris Edwards

There must be a misprint in the Intel and Micron announcement of a new type of memory - their 3D Xpoint technology -  "in more than 25 years". They must mean days, right?

Social media's turn to sweat

16 Jul 2015 by Paul Dempsey

I've just spent six weeks or so deprived of social media. Not by choice. Recovering from a traffic accident and nasty eye injury enforced my cyberlayoff. But there was nevertheless something strangely pleasant about it all. The world became a much simpler and far less vicious place when my main information conduits were the radio and a side order of TV. And more important, much easier to understand.

Journey to the Bottom of the Sea

1 Jun 2015 by Justin Pollard

The story of modern recreational diving began in the late nineteenth century when a young Maurice Fernez tripped over and fell in the water. The accident, in which he damaged his ankle, left Fernez with a life-long limp and a not unreasonable fear of drowning. But like all good engineers, rather than avoid the water, Fernez decided to conquer his fear.
