I just came upon this video (thru a post from Panasonic) of a very cool panoramic camera. The camera is basically a ball with mobile phone cameras inside of it, when the user throws the ball in the air, when it gets to its highest point the ball cameras take a snap and you have a panoramic picture.

Last week I heard about the possibility of the long run animated show “The Simpsons” might not be produced anymore.
The reason, according to this Routers article, is that the studio needs to cut down on the shows production costs and that would mean cutting the principal voice character’s salary of 8 million dollars per season (around 22 weeks of production) to a poor 4 million dollars.
The show is currently running their 23rd season, if no arrangements are done between the voice actors and the studio, it’s quite possible the show will be canceled.
** update: the show was signed for two more seasons.

Well, according to this CNN article that’s true.
