WOW! What a big night. Not only are we recording Episode 42 but also we're recording it on 12/12/12. We talk about nanophotonics, "growing" oil, and, as the title would suggest, Apple's maps app. Plus, as an extra-special bonus to you and to us, we received TWO feedback items. On the same show! Can you believe it?
- Sapphire Energy: Growing green oil
- IBM manufactures light-based 'nanophotonic' chips
- Even FCC thinks in-flight gadget bans are dumb
- Australian Police Are Telling People to Stop Using Apple Maps
- Saving the Bridge (of the Enterprise)
- Apple and Google join forces to buy out Kodak patents
- Throwing cold water on Apple's made-in-the-U.S.A. Mac
- Funny video of the week: The Meow Choir
Philosophy Question/Concept of the Week:
Deep Thought - is a computer that was created by the pan-dimensional, hyper-intelligent species of beings (whose three dimensional protrusions into our universe are ordinary white mice) to come up with the Answer to The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.

P.S. As are most people in the United States, we are deeply saddened by the events that occurred Friday morning at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newton, Connecticut. Words are inadequate to describe feelings so profound and all attempts appear trite. May God welcome all his children into his house and grant eventual serenity to those who must heal from this horrific tragedy.
