Funky balloon creature--35 feet long!

Wild and Wacky Stuff

Ok. I just saw a demo of a man using his finger to copy a file (on a touch screen) and transfer it to another device simply by touching its touchscreen. So it's easier than Bluetooth.

Statement I heard this morning: "Math needs to be more creative because it is difficult.". Interesting.
