Another weekend, another batch of national selections for Eurovision. Sadly this was a rather poor crop. The only one I really like is Australia, which seems to have finally embraced the weirdness of the competition.
That sucks. (Not the song, the depression.) Hope you're feeling better!
That music video was great, thanks for sharing.
For years now I've had an idea for a product. It's a globe that is actually a spherical LCD display that shows the Earth. On the stand there's a slider for year, so you can choose to see what the Earth looked like at any point in human history. Buttons control what you want to see: National borders, cities, terrain, population density, etc. There's also a toggle for which planet you want to see, with every known planet and moon in the solar system available. Optionally the globe can be connected to the Internet for automatic updates to keep all the information up to date.
I have no idea if the product would even be possible to make. If anyone want to try, you can have the idea for free.
I had to look up the Chinese city tier system.
- The Chinese city tier system (Chinese: 中国城市等级制) is a hierarchical classification of Chinese cities. There are no such official lists in China, as the Chinese government does not publish or recognize an official definition or a list of cities included in the tier system. However, it is frequently referred to by various media publications for purposes including commerce, transportation, tourism, education, and more. Given the rapid development of Chinese cities and the ever-changing dynamic among cities, the tier system has gained wide popularity in recent years as a point of reference. Cities in different tiers reflect differences in consumer behavior, income level, population size, consumer sophistication, infrastructure, talent pool, and business opportunity. The tier system typically includes cities in mainland China only.
- And if Yan can't do it, they're counting on you, by the way - especially if you live on the West Coast of North America.
What do you mean?
Sign Hubski up as a Flattr creator and it'll get a few bucks from me every month.
I must admit I don't have very high thoughts of tabloids.
I'm not sure if a physical box could do that, but maybe an app could.
A simpler solution (which sadly won't make you any money) is to get a dumb-phone as a second phone and get a twin SIM card (if your operator offers that service). Leave you smart-phone in your jacket or purse so you can bring it when you leave the house, and use the dumb-phone around the house.
