Anul 1900 New York si Bucuresti

Am pornit de la o singura poza care nu merita postata dar m-a luat valul si am adunat o multime.

Aici avem o poza din Manhattan (New York) din 1900.

(click pt mai mare, si click iarasi la sursa pt si mai mare)
Atunci era "little Italy".

Acum este Chinatown la doi pasi de districtul financiar.

Daca va uitati cu atentie se pot recunoaste unele cladiri. Pervazele si detaliile de fatada au ramas la fel.

Alte poze New York 1900:

Dar cum arata Bucurestiul la 1900? Surprinzator de bine in comparatie cu NY:

(click pt mai mare - observati domnisoara care trece strada singura in partea dreapta :) )

Ok dar aia e casa Capsa. Cum arata restul?

Tot aceeasi zona la cercul militar:

Calea Mosilor:

Alte zone:

Daca mai aveti alte poze ar fi grozav sa le putem adauga.

Cristi zice bine ce zice ca in numai 20 de ani de cand a fost facuta poza aia in New York fusese ridicata Empire State Building.

Biletele CFR se scumpesc cu 15%

Surse din ministerul Transporturilor spun că biletele se vor scumpi. Procedurile pentru majorarea de preţ ar fi fost deja demarate. Creşterea de preţ ar putea să se aplice din vară şi atunci vom plăti cu 15 la sută mai mult pentru un bilet. Ultima scumpirea a biletelor a avut loc în septembrie septembrie 2007. Atunci, o călătorie cu trenul s-a scumpit cu 8,1%.

Fuel Cells and Bloom Energy's Miracle Box

Right now, the only box that Bloom is selling is a 100-kilowatt-hour energy server, which you can check out there. Inside are thousands of solid oxide fuel cells—each one able to power a light bulb. The cells are arranged in stacks, which are aggregated into modules, and so on, with a common fuel input. Right now, they're just for corporations—like Google and Coca-Cola—and run about $700,000 to $800,000 each. The goal's to get them down to three grand, where they'd be suitable for home use. That may still sound expensive, but they pay for themselves in 3-5 years, says Aaron, with an energy cost of 8-9 cents per kW hour vs. the 13-14 cents it typically costs in California. (It saved eBay $100,000 on their power bill.)

What's wrong with credit cards?

Stewart first explained that the problem with American consumers is that they not only desire a Champagne lifestyle on a Busch Light budget, but will take any opportunity to act on that appetite—even when painfully aware of the consequences of doing so. If you let them, they will spend, whether they have the money or not.

The best point and shoot camera

Samsung's new TL500 is capable of shooting RAW with a crazy fast F1.8 lens and lets you view it all on a twisting AMOLED screen. It's possibly Samsung's best point-and-shoot ever, and it could be a Canon S90 killer.

Model Sukhoi Su-27

This no model, but a fully functioning RC jet. The Sukhoi Su-27 was the Soviet Union’s counterpart of the F16 and this 1/6.5 scaled version measures eleven feet long and is fully controllable. As if the 80-page build log wasn’t enough, the flight video is nothing short of jaw-dropping.

Moscow-Vladivostok: trans-siberian virtual journey on Google Maps

The great Trans Siberian Railway, the pride of Russia, goes across two continents, 12 regions and 87 cities. The joint project of Google and the Russian Railways lets you take a trip along the famous route and see Baikal, Khekhtsirsky range, Barguzin mountains, Yenisei river and many other picturesque places of Russia without leaving your house. During the trip, you can enjoy Russian classic literature, brilliant images and fascinating stories about the most attractive sites on the route. Let's go!

Intr-un fel sunt trist ca a aparut asta. Traseul trans-siberian e unul pe care toata viata mi l-am dorit sa il parcurg... acum e pe google :(

Canon EOS 550D/Digital Rebel T2i

In many respects the EOS 550D is a 'baby EOS 7D'. As well as getting a resolution boost to a class-leading 18 megapixels and a significantly upgraded movie mode (which now offers full HD capture at up to 30 fps, has full manual control and the option to use an external stereo microphone), the EOS 550D gets the 7D's sophisticated new metering system (bringing it a lot closer to similarly positioned Nikon SLRs). It also sports a new widescreen (3:2) LCD panel, has improved button design and finally offers the ability to customize the Auto ISO function.

Nokia diagnostics

Nokia Diagnostics is a free utility that can help you troubleshoot and resolve common problems with your Nokia phones.

For instance, when you need to configure your Nokia device on a different Internet Connection (like moving from one Wi-Fi network to another), Nokia Diagnostics can automatically identify the right Internet settings for you.

The utility can also help you test the phone’s battery charger, the loudspeaker and even the earpiece.

Nokia Diagnostics works with all S60 5th edition devices (like the N-series, Nokia 5800, etc.) while support for 3rd edition devices is expected soon.

displax touchscreen film

the portuguese company displax has developed a new type of film which can transform any surface into
a fully functioning touchscreen display. this new flexible film can be place on top of solid surfaces like
wood or plastic, or placed behind transparent materials like glass. the film is clear and can respond to
both touch and airflow. because it is flexible, the film can even be placed on uneven and curved surfaces.
the screen uses tiny wires embedded inside to capture input. the screen captures this information and
using its software transmits the data to your computer.
