Sunspots 450

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:

The Arts: A video of Julia Fischer, who is an accomplished violinist and also a very good classical pianist.

Computing: Wired says that the next big change in information appliances, and it's already started, is wearable devices.

Science: The Milky Way (the galaxy we are inside) has been awarded four arms, not the two previously given, according to the Christian Science Monitor.

Perhaps more than you want to know about cockroaches, from the History Channel.

Wired reports on strange structures built by spiders in the Amazon area.

P. S. You may not have noticed, but I have been posting the "Sunspots" on Wednesdays for several years. This time, this one is going up on Tuesday, because Wednesday is Christmas. I know -- we don't know what year or month Christ was born, let alone what day, but December 25th is a day of celebration for Christians, and tomorrow's post is related to that celebration. Thanks for reading.

I honestly DON'T see watches catching on and I really think Apple just teased everyone into releasing watches. The Samsung Galaxy gear is slow and a joke, I honestly don't see how Apple could improve it.

The Pebble is neat, but in the end, just an expensive watch.

Merry Christmas

God knows, and only time will tell. By "wearable devices," they mean more than watches.
