Samsung has added a few software tweaks that take advantage of the curved surface. For instance, there is the cool Roll Effect feature which turns the screen on to reveal the date, time, missed calls and battery life when one side of the phone is pressed down while it is lying on the table. Bounce UX is another interesting tweak, which lets you control music playback by similarly pressing down on one side to tilt the phone. Tilting the phone toward the left will play the previous track, while tilting the phone on the right will forward to the next song.

Re: Oops I think I messed up

Hey AD,

Thanks for your confession, but I think you may be worried about nothing. If I remember correctly, iTunes doesn't allow you to give no stars. I belive that not clicking on any stars just counts as not voting, and doesn't tally. I could be wrong but I think that the lowest value you can give is 1 star.

In any case, I looked up my US and Canadian ratings and they both still say an average of 5 stars. If you put in your rating from either then it looks like everything's all fine.

Oops I think I messed up

I sent you a review on itunes, and may have messed up the star rating. You see when I wrote the psychic haiku I checked the number of stars above the comment, and it showed 5 stars. I didn't realize that I had to highlight the number of stars. I thought the default position for itunes was 5 stars, so I think I sent you a 0 star review.

I thought I would fix it, by adding 5 star reviews. The problem is no matter how many 5 star ratings I put in the average will never actually make it to 5. The average number will slowly creep up, but never make it to 5.

Sorry about that, from yet another Dumbass

You said you help people with podcasts?

Me and three friends are in the process of creating a podcast called "The Canadian Dialogues"
I just thought: "What's a description for people exploring ideas and concepts? A Socratic dialogue. And what's a description of our personality? Canadian. The Canadian Dialogues"

We are thinking on releasing a 4045 min podcast biweekly (possibly biweekly)

And that is what we will do, every episode we pick a topic, pick a beer, and talk about that subject.

Episode ideas include (but are not limited to):
"Was the Middle Ages really as bad as people think"
"Historical and social narratives: The progressivist view versus the cyclical view"
The Evolving Idea of "Masculinity"
The Evolving Idea of "Femininity"
"Does evil exist, and to what extent?"
"Scams, ripoffs, and fraudulent behavior"
"What war is more interesting WWI or WWII?"
"Fetishes and Kink"
"What is truth and evidence?"

And so on.

There are three people involved in this project
I am a strong atheist, sceptic and science enthusiast
One guy is an Archaeologist and a big history buff.
and the last guy is basically an encyclopaedia for terminology, theories, concepts of many different areas (mostly philosophy and science)

We are all very modivated about the project! I know how to record and edit the podcast, but that is about it. I still need to set up a website, get my podcast to itunes and other providers, promote my podcast etc etc etc.

Can you helpguide us? FSM knows we need it.

your podcast about your podcast

this podcast has potential. spent 30 minutes listeing to different show, but all I hear is you talking about your podcast, not about anything else. So your podcast is about your podcast?

The Ark

Hi DA, be nice to get on skype again sometime so we can really have a chat. Hope my spur of the moment 'two balls of fire' video didn't scare you off? It was just in front of me on FB as you gave me the link to the Mercury Vortex Engine article, so as an untainted barometer; ( I knew nothing of the two balls, and had no real history or source to form my opinions on); I felt it a good way to gauge just how your logical empirical thought process differs and overlaps my own more possibly more intuitive method. Anyway, loving your work and wondered if you have covered this article yet? - . Might be interesting to do a guide for this or another similar work. All the best and have fun. Adam

More scholarly material

I recently found a good resource, at my local public library, that critically examines the pseudo-scientific claims surrounding myths and mysteries of world history. It is from the Recorded Books company and its Modern Scholar series. The title is "Myths and Mysteries in Archaeology", the lecturer is Susan A. Johnson from George Washington University. She covers topics from ancient astronauts to King Arthur, eventually examining what is called Genuine Archaeloogical Mysteries (such as when and how was America peopled).
Even more interesting is her recommended reading material, she often suggests Kenneth L. Feder's, "Frauds, Myths and Mysteries: Science and Pseudoscience in Archaeology".

It's so heartening to read your views on the CPSO survey.
It should be noted that -on January 26, 2010 - the CPSO 'disciplined' a registered MD in Ottawa for having been the 'Medical Director' for a particularly awful fraud still in open operation in Ottawa.
The MD pleaded guilty to malpractice and agreed to stay away from the fraud in future but otherwise it was a slap on the wrist.
I don't know what it is about Ottawa but there are TWO 'clinics' here claiming to treat cancer with health food products.

This is a great podcast. I really love it. You really have a good eye for finding BULL$H!T in someone's article. I really love your Aincient Aliens podcasts. Keep it up!

Re: Awesome!

Hi Indigo, I'm glad you're enjoying the blog!

The Nazca lines are very interesting to research. You hear people say that they were runways for alien craft, and it's true that you sometimes find lines running in parallel. But in many of these cases these lines are something like a meter apart, and they run on for miles over hills and gullies throughout the landscape. You've got to wonder what kind of aircraft would be using these kinds of strange runways. They're not laid out like any airport I've ever seen.

And the idea that the drawings of animals are meant to signal the aliens somehow always makes me laugh. You've got to picture some alien beings descending and then demanding that the humans make them a giant line drawing of a monkey. It seems perfectly absurd.

You're absolutely right, there are many possibilities for why the Nazca people made these lines. There's no reason to suspect that aliens had anything to do with it.

Thanks for writing in!

I love your combination of whit and sarcasm, along with critical, analysis, and willingness to do research to back yourself up. I will never be able to watch Ancient Aliens, in the same way every again! I honestly expected more from the History Chanel! Folklore and mythology is very important for understanding other cultures, but these stories where meant to do a few things things to explain the world, and also as entertainment, and as warnings about

unacceptable behavior or to praise expectable behaviors. I know that I am probably missing a few things here, but I am only human.
I do believe that our ancestors where visited by other world beings, in my case it comes from a Catholic up brining. So yes I believe in God, Angles, and Demon, there are few good examples of both in the Bible, I would goggle some, but right now I am trying to enjoy your show, that and I donít want to run off an a rabbit trial. After all, this isnít about religion, these are my thoughts on the Nazca Lines.

I also love art, world mythology, and art. Yes there is a point here, when I hear about something like The Nazca Lines, two things come to mind. A few things come to mind, maybe the people who made the Nazca lines made them as part of a religious practice, possibly to honor their gods. It could have been used by shaman for medicinal purposes, contacting the spirit world. Many other things that I canít begin to fathom, or maybe they did have some advanced technology and or contact with ET.

But, who is to say that, there were not eccentric artistes around back then, who felt compelled to make the shapes of animals and whatever else, some of these things are supposed to be. The thing is until someone ether finds records of the local mythology, culture or builds a time machine, it is very naïve to assume that these lines where a landing strip or a rock quarry, or anything without being able to back up what youíre saying it is. I know I have suggested a few things, but I am trying to think critically and make heads or tails of the Nazca lines. I just need some time to look up a few things.

Response to tmiller19

I know the blog host is quite capable of defending himself, and did an admirable job in his response. However, I want to point out that you completely undermine your credibility tmiller 19 by making personal attacks and insults that have nothing to do with what is being said. 1. I'd check the credibility of the so-called experts represented on the History Channel's program. Most of them are well known charlatans who've profited greatly from from all of this mumbo-jumbo. 2. You do an incredible disservice to our human ancestors by proposing that they are incapable of having accomplished what they did. A retired builder in Michigan has shown how, with a few simple tools and a few basic concepts that were available to our ancestors, he was able to move stones weighing several tons ON HIS OWN. He is in the process of building a replica of Stonehenge on his own as undeniable evidence of what humans can do with a little know-how and some elbow-grease, and using ONLY ancient tools and knowledge. The concepts of leverage and counter-balancing are not that complicated, and contrary to the popular belief among ancient alien theorists, our ancestors were not total idiots.

Re: WOW!

Thanks for writing in tmiller, but I don't understand your objections. I've already handled every single one of those claims.

You say that the golden flyer actually flew? Sure it did, when they made a bunch of significant modifications. Not to mention that it was the only figurine out of the bunch of the figurines they said looked like airplanes that was even close to aerodynamic.

Moving stones that weigh 100 tons is easy, you get a sled, lubrication, and a couple hundred people with ropes and have them pull.

Why would they do it if it were so hard? They did it *because* it was hard. These are monuments of power and the ability to command thousands of people for a single building project. If it were easy, there would be no point.

I'm giving you the short version of the answers to some of your questions here, but I'm essentially repeating myself. I encourage you to read my articles on the show, and if you find any detail that I got wrong I would very much appreciate you pointing it out to me.

The people that made that show have infinite amounts of credibility compared to you. Those golden planes are inexplicable and the reason is because it actually did fly. How could those people have known how to make a perfectly crafted model of an airplane? How can you explain moving 100 ton pound stones perfectly etched being laid in to unison? The ancient Egyptians didn't have the wheel or pulley systems. If the pyramids were so difficult to make why would a primitive culture that didn't even have the wheel move thousands of pounds of stone? If it were so difficult why would they even bother? When human logic is to do things in a reasonable fashion? Get a clue guy you are a joke and have no imagination.
ďImagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.Ē --Albert Einstein
