Tilting windows are the scariest way to look down from a skyscraper

Tilting windows are the scariest way to look down from a skyscraper

Holy crap. The John Hancock Tower in Chicago rolled out a snazzy scary new attraction for people who visit the top of the skyscraper: windows that tilt down to give you a better view of the ground beneath you. It’s like a roller coaster ride for those afraid of heights (that would be me). Just stand next to the window and it’ll tilt itself down like you’re falling.

The Navy’s Huge, Hidden Problem: Barnacles on Ships

The Navy's Huge, Hidden Problem: Barnacles on Ships

It’s a problem as old as sailing itself. Ever since man set out sea, barnacles have been clinging like, well, barnacles to ships, growing into bumpy masses that slows down vessels and wastes fuel. Could the solution to this age-old dilemma be a new coat of special paint? It’s not as simple as it sounds.

Sony Crams 3,700 Blu-Rays’ Worth of Storage in a Single Cassette Tape

Sony Crams 3,700 Blu-Rays' Worth of Storage in a Single Cassette Tape

Stupid hipster 80s fetishism notwithstanding, cassette tapes don’t get much love. That’s a shame, because magnetic tape is still a surprisingly robust way to back up data. Especially now: Sony just unveiled tape that holds a whopping 148 GB per square inch, meaning a cassette could hold 185 TB of data. Prepare for the mixtape to end all mixtapes.

IDC data shows tablet sales slowing but Apple and Samsung still own the market

IDC posted their quarterly numbers of the international tablet market. They’re showing a slight dip in iPad dominance and growth from Samsung. Apple dropped from 40.2% of market share in the first quarter of 2013 to 32.5% in Q1 2014, compared to Samsung who went up from 17.5% to 22.3%. According to IDC, Amazon, Asus, and Lenovo each occupy 5% or less of the current global market share, with the remaining 34% claimed by other manufacturers. The overall market has dipped 35% since the holiday quarter which isn’t much of a surprise, but it’s up 3.9% since a year ago.

Traditionally, Apple has dominated the tablet space, but the gap with Samsung is quickly closing. It’s hard to say if the two will be on completely even ground come this time next year, but given these numbers, it’s easy enough to imagine. How many of you guys have an iPad? Would you ever consider swapping it out for something from Samsung? Do many of you have Samsung tablets?
