NASA Selfies From Saturn, Apple iPhone Trade In Deal – Tech Talk

The “selfies” part of the title deserves some explanation, I admit.   So let me see if I can clear it up below, but this is VERY cool
 You see, about a month ago, according to USA Today, the Casseni spacecraft orbited Saturn and took a shot of earth from up there (a billion miles away!)

But they had this all planned out.  According to the NASA website, they put out the call to people all over the world to take “selfies” and post them at the same time that the spacecraft was taking the picture up there, and sharing them on Facebook and Twitter etc.  The result?   They compiled 1400 photos into this montage, and I guess you can zoom in on it too.  Who had the imagination to do something like THAT?  Could you imagine handing this in as your science project in school?

Here’s another bit of coverage on this story from USAtoday.com

Trade your trusty iPhone 5 in.  I guess it’s a given that there will be yet another new gizmo announced in September (the 10th to be exact).  It’ll probably be the iPhone 5s, but whatever they call it, you will be able to trade in your old one right to Apple (can’t do it yet, mind you).  According to Forbes though, you can start trading it in now, but you don’t have to physically trade it in until after the new one is announced, like early October.  However, you only get store credit at Apple.  There are other sites like Gazelle that will give you actual cash though , like Gazelle. ( never used it myself).
