Frank Herbert's Moisture traps
This Slashdot article is very interesting as it points to a possible use to the moisture traps described in Dune.
This is yet another example of how ideas spawned in the SciFi world might make its way into the real world.
From the pages of a SciFi novel to concept works and perhaps later into real-life versions of the inventions, the ideas of our SciFi authors are making their way over.

Is Laserbeak about to be invented?

Last.fm shuts down the cool webapps
I liked it so much that for a long time I've had a web-app as part of the main page of the blog. The web-app was simple: if you click on it, it would start playing songs by Norah Jones and other similar artists.
It's really sad that they have taken the whole web-apps off the net. I've heard a lot of rumors, and read a lot of things online as to what's been happening over there in the past several months.
Perhaps some day, the site will regain its old reputation as being a cool music website online. For now, the need to log in, and the shutting off of the web-apps are complete disappointing.
