Apple CarPlay

Gear | Apple
Apple has announced its new in-car iPhone integration system, CarPlay. It's designed to be an eyes-free system which allows users to safely use their phone for information, entertainment and communication while at the wheel. Apple claimed "CarPlay has been designed from the ground up to provide drivers with an incredible experience using their iPhone in the car.” In reality, that means that it's focussed around Siri, using voice commands to help navigate your music collections, dictate text messages and deal with incoming calls.
"Once iPhone is connected to a vehicle with CarPlay integration, Siri helps you easily access your contacts, make calls, return missed calls or listen to voicemails. When incoming messages or notifications arrive, Siri provides an eyes-free experience by responding to requests through voice commands, by reading drivers’ messages and letting them dictate responses or simply make a call.
CarPlay makes driving directions more intuitive by working with Maps to anticipate destinations based on recent trips via contacts, emails or texts, and provides routing instructions, traffic conditions and ETA. You can also simply ask Siri and receive spoken turn-by-turn directions, along with Maps, which will appear on your car’s built-in display."

How the Time of Sunrise and Sunset Varies Around the Wrold

How the Time of Sunrise and Sunset Varies Around the
Gear | Pic
Areas in red see the sun rise and set late in the day; areas in green see it early. Obviously, the regions which are white sit centrally in the time zone in which they're located—the best example being London, through which GMT is defined.
Stefano Maggiolo, the man behind the map, explains that it is inspired by a trip to Spain, whose time zone means that, say, Madrid's sunset is more than an hour later than that of Naples, even though it is in the same time zone and at a similar latitude. He explains:
Looking for other regions of the world having the same peculiarity of Spain, I edited a world map from Wikipedia to show the difference between solar and standard time. It turns out, there are many places where the sun rises and sets late in the day, like in Spain, but not a lot where it is very early (highlighted in red and green in the map, respectively). Most of Russia is heavily red, but mostly in zones with very scarce population; the exception is St. Petersburg, with a discrepancy of two hours, but the effect on time is mitigated by the high latitude. The most extreme example of Spain-like time is western China: the difference reaches three hours against solar time. For example, today the sun rises there at 10:15 and sets at 19:45, and solar noon is at 15:01.

Instant Badminton Court
Gear | Sport
This is the freestanding badminton set, instead of having to string up support cables and try to straighten out perpetually crooked poles, this kit comes with a set of plastic net supports that attach to its weighted carrying case. And when the regulation-width 11.5-foot wide net is attached, the tension keeps the poles propped up at the proper height. The $100 kit also includes four rackets and a couple of shuttlecocks, and it all packs away into the carrying case. This idea looks good.
