Temperature-Sensitive Glass Tiles

Cool! er, Hot!

From bookofjoe:

“Temperature-Sensitive Glass Tiles

SDFGHJK

Long story short: "Textured glass tiles that alter in color with changes in temperature."

For a change, not a concept or "real soon now" but ready today for whatever you'd like to do with them.

About $15 per standard size 4" x 4" x 3/8" tile.

So a square foot will run you about $150.

No end of fun.

Electronista | Sprint already training on Palm Pre?

Electronista | Sprint already training on Palm Pre?: Sprint already training on Palm Pre?

Sprint staff are already training on selling the Palm Pre to customers, according to Twitter posts by Yahoo’s Sarah Lacy. Although only just announced this month, employees both acknowledge having been given formal tutorials and are being told to expect the Pre in June, landing the hardware at the end of its promised first-half 2009 shipping window. Other details, such as price, aren’t known and are unlikely to be revealed at this early stage. Palm and Sprint have so far declined to commit to more specific release dates.
While Lacy’s apparent discoveries aren’t necessarily an indication of special measures by themselves, the training is unusually early for a device. Store workers at AT&T locations are known to have been fully briefed on the original, 2007 iPhone considerably later than the actual announcement despite pricing and a launch month having already been announced in January of that year. Most other devices also receive similar treatment.

If sustained, a June launch would potentially place the Pre in more direct competition with an iPhone refresh, which in the device’s brief history has always taken place in mid-year.

Since seeing this phone reviewed during CES 2009, I’ve been excited to stay with Sprint. Shands basically has a Sprint CDMA tower sitting on top of it. We get superb coverage even down in IR. While I’d love an iPhone, this might just be a bit more practical.
