Brett's list of bits - stuff and things as well as things and stuff...
This is waaaaaay geeky - but a story of how they packed the game into the original PlayStation. Wow.

Turns out - quite a bit. And not necessarily unnoticeable - even on cheap(ish) speakers.

Turns out that there are some things that can't be easily recycled. Or recycled at all. So what do you do with wind turbine blades when they reach the end of their useful life?

Your hard drive or USB thumb drive stores a lot of data. But compared to the data density in nature (even with loads of redundancy) it's nothing.

This is way cool.

This is a great story - how to convince your surgeon that there is another way to operate by creating a 3D printed version of the skull.

The cars only drive within a certain radius of the Google headquarters - and those roads have been meticulously mapped in incredible detail including things like curb position and height. In short, the people have done a bunch of work to make it easier for the computers in the car to do the driving. So not necessary applicable to the rest of the roads.
