Interlude: Summit Fever, Mono Pass Yosemite (10,000 ft)
By Charlotte Sullivan, Best Made Guide to The Frontier

“Looking up the canyon from the warm sunny edge of the Mono plain my morning ramble seems a dream, so great is the change in the vegetation and climate. The lilies on the bank of Moraine Lake are higher than my head, and the sunshine is hot enough for palms. Yet the snow round the arctic gardens at the summit of the pass is plainly visible, only about four miles away, and between lie specimen zones of all the principal climate of the globe. In little more than an hour one may swoop down from winter to summer, from an Arctic to a torrid region, through as great changes of climate as one would encounter in traveling from Labrador to Florida”- John Muir (From My First Summer in the Sierra)

Video shot around Mono Pass, elevation ~10,000 ft. while still in the boundary of Yosemite - and then right when you exit the park (the “Pass” refers to this boundary change) into the Ansel Adams Wilderness and Inyo National Forest.

The melting snow visible in these videos is what creates these alpine lakes. These alpine lakes are where millions of Californian’s get their water. (And if you don’t live in California you are still consuming some of this water since much of it is used to irrigate crops which you probably buy in some supermarket somewhere). While it’s hard to imagine a river suddenly just stopping, or a lake instantly drying up, it’s somehow easy to imagine there being no snow. Of course, without the melting snow, the riverbeds would run dry, and the lakes would be empty.

Deliver the web - win the market
Very nice graph on PC-sales, pre- and post the iPad introduction by Sebastian Peitsch at Appleoutsider.de. He did the numbers after thinking a graph from Deutche Bank looked somewhat odd.
This is not a matter of the tablet as a form factor per-see. It’s actually a matter of the iPad as a product, its timing and its ability to deliver content and the web in a fast, enjoyable and affordable manner. When introduced, the iPad was a low-end device and a premium product at the same time. Netbooks, which eventually became quite popular had the same target. However, they started out at as pretty awful products. The Linux versions were too complicated for most people, too underpowered for running windows and equipped with too small, low resolution screens for making web browsing enjoyable.
Without thinking much about the transition, regular folks are today relying heavily on web/cloud services for almost everything they do with computers in their spare time. Mail, Web-browsing, streaming media, using skype, Facebook, on-line banking etc. This transision started to get heavy traction almost contemporaneous as the iPad was introduced. The Apple tablet outclasses the low-end notebook segment in most of these areas while costing the same or less. And at the same time the iPad is a very premium feeling product. Both in materials, build quality and in use. PC notebooks in the same price class as the iPad is often very bulky with cheap plastics and with lousy battery-life. Or small and underpowered netbooks. Even though these has become much better in the past two years. But a premium feeling netbook with above average performance is often more expensive than an iPad.
Other tablet vendors will also sell a lot of devices. But they need to hit their own price/performance sweet spot which I believe they will start doing in 2012.

ChinaFile: Who Made That Dress? →

womensweardaily:

For Chinese television, there is an unwritten rule on celebrity fashion; namely, the make of the dress cannot be broadcast on air.
