Story Behind World’s Most Viewed Picture

Windows XP has become one of the world’s most popular operating systems since its debut in 2001. As a result, the standard background picture of a grassy field with blue skies may very well be the world’s most viewed image as it has been seen by over one billion people.  

Now, that Windows XP is being closed down for good, Microsoft has traveled to San Francisco to tell the story behind the famous picture. 

The story has gone viral with over 800,000 views!

Kids React To Walkman Cassette Player

The Fine Brothers last went viral with their enlightening video showing kids from today reacting to an old fashion rotary phone. The kids just had no idea how low-tech the world was just a few years ago.

For their next piece of technology to confuse the children of this generation, they showed a group of kids what used to be the coolest piece of tech a kid could have: a portable cassette Walkman.

Nearly every kid initially reacts with, “What is this thing?”

Slowly, very slowly, they start to figure it out.

Land Rover Debuts Invisible Car Technology

One of the most difficult parts of driving a monstrous SUV like a Land Rover is that the hood is so large. It makes assessing how close you really are to an object difficult.

Land Rover wants to make that issue a problem of the past with their newly revealed invisible car technology.

Using heads up display technology and a slew of high tech cameras, an immersive augmented reality view appears on the hood so the driver can see ‘through it.’

It’s as if the front of the car ‘disappears.’

Incredible.

Rise Of The Patent Troll

Patents are an important part of the American economy. They protect creators’ inventions and ideas from being copied. They promote further inventions and everyone benefits. 

But the digital era isn’t as simple. Patent trolls have emerged. They sue anyone for using nearly any obscure form of software or technology. Most of the time, they are just blackmailing people and companies because most don’t have the money to fight back. 

Kirby Ferguson explains the background of the patent troll, and how popular podcaster Adam Carolla is fighting back
