Tech Tuesday: New Year's Eve Edition

Things tech I am thinking about today...

  • The Times Square ball countdown to the new year began in 1904, and in 1907 had a ball with one hundred 25 watt bulbs.  In 2008 LED lights saving 88% on energy and enabling designs using 16 million colors brought the ball into a whole new era.  (TMCnet)
  • The Times Square Alliance, the group who bring us the Time Square Countdown on New Year's Eve, have a free app for iPhone and Droid to ring in the new year!  (Interactive Intelligence).
  • With the primary season ready to rev up with the Iowa caucus next week, my son shared some tech with me that helps you find the candidate most like you! Whether D or R, you can have fun with this!  (Project Vote Smart)  Comment back--how did it work?  It was pretty accurate when I did it!  It takes about 10 minutes to answer the questions and I am sure is market research!  Fun anyhow!
