Capture1

Many people stick to doing all their printing at work or school to save time and money. It’s not ideal; you’re always under scrutiny, and you might feel bad (or be made to feel bad) for using all that paper and ink. If you’re someone who keeps telling themselves that there’s no point spending all that money on a printer, and you can’t afford to keep it filled with ink, then you might be surprised to learn that you can get into printing at home for much less than you would imagine.

Despite the fact that most mobile phones are designed to last at least 5 Years, in Europe there are nearly 800 million mobile phone users, who on average replace their mobile phone every 18 months. This equates to about 500 million handsets a year that end up getting replaced quite needlessly.

Guest Post: Creative Approaches to Brainstorming

Like the egg and the chicken question there’s no simple answer to the one about which came first the sci-fi novel or the science.  While Mary Shelley was obviously crazy with her mad idea that a scientist could actually build a human, at least she didn’t go completely crazy and suggest we might one day grow human organs in animals as spare parts.  Erm.  Maybe she should have.
