For Both the Living and Deceased, There's Just As Many iPad 2's As iPhone 5's

clock April 6, 2011 01:04 by author Jeremy

It's almost crazy how repitition has worked its way into our yearly lifestyle. For example, we expect that every June, at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, we'll get a new iPhone. Meanwhile, the iPad-series gets their own special release date, which also follows the 12-month rule. For a few months before a release, rumors are rampant; whereas a few months after a release, shortages occur.

Currently, we're seeing an overlap in the rumors/shortages department, thanks to the iPhones and iPads having different release schedules. As the world prepares for the WDC in June, we listen to every bit of gossip that even remotely resembles the words "iPhone 5"; simultaneously, we're all out of iPad 2's, even for some who waited in the legendary Apple lines on opening day.

Oddly, we're not the only ones out of iPad 2's. It's not only happening all around the world, but now even in other worlds. What am I talking about, you ask? Why, the deceased, of course!

In China, the deceased are believed to have just as many needs and wants as the living do. Like in ancient Egyptian times, the Chinese will leave gifts at the resting places of loved ones; the difference is that the Chinese leave paper replicas. Though, if it can be afforded, some people will even purchase the real products to leave at tombstones and graves.

Recently, paper vendors in China have begun running low on their iPad and iPhone paper bundles. It's somewhat unfortunate that even the deceased are having trouble getting a copy of the same technology that we're after. Makes you wonder though if they hear the same rumors that we do about the next iPhone 5 supposedly coming out in June. Go ahead, let yourself ponder that one; I'm still trying to wrap my head around it.

Tesla Roadster 10 Million Miles

Tesla Motors located in Palo Alto, California has announced on March 28 that over 1500 electric Roadsters in 30 countries have covered 10 million miles. In retrospect, these electric sports cars have saved over 500,000 gallons of fuel from being burned and 5.3 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.

The Tesla electric cars are remarkable vehicle since their Roadster launched in 2008 as the only highway-capable electric vehicle to accelerate from 0-60 in 3.7 second and a range of 245 miles off of one full charge. The Tesla Roadster consistently outperforms other traditional supercars around the world, while also being credited with leading the automotive industry to a zero-emissions future.

At an average of 500 Tesla Roadsters being manufactured and sold each year, more fuel will be saved to achieve a zero-emissions future. Tesla is also adding a new Model S to the production line and deliveries will be taken in 2012.

UPS' Tips On How to Safely Package Batteries

clock March 30, 2011 01:24 by author Jeremy

Shipping batteries in the near future? UPS has a few helpful tips that could save you (and your package) from a bit of trouble. It's always good to keep in mind that there are different regulatory requirements when packaging each type of battery; however, these tips work to generally keep you and the recipient safe from harm.

  • For loose batteries, cover the battery terminals (or leads) with an insulating cap or electrical tape, if the battery is not already contained in protective packaging.
  • Ensure there is adequate internal protection to keep batteries from contacting metal or other batteries by wrapping them individually, either with bubble sheeting or plastic bags.
  • Do not ship damaged, defective, or recalled batteries by air, as such shipments are prohibited by federal regulation. Also, UPS does not accept air shipments of recycled batteries.
  • For battery-operated tools, laptops, or other appliances, provide effective protection for the switches to make sure they will not turn on accidentally during transportation.
  • Lead-acid batteries contain highly corrosive liquids, making these batteries subject to U.S. and international shipping regulations. UPS hazardous materials restrictions may also apply.
  • Package batteries securely to keep them from shifting, being crushed, or otherwise damaged while in transportation.
