This week the new The Hundreds Eyeware Fall 2011 range has been released. This collection introduces a brand-new style heavily influenced by the traditional aviator sunglass, called the Morrison, which will be offered in four different colorways. The Fall 2011 line also features several carry-over classic styles in a broad range of never-before-seen hues, along with the tried-and-true basic colors of previous seasons.
Edge Walk at the CN Tower, has become Toronto’s most extreme attraction. Thrill lovers will walk on the edge of one of the world’s tallest buildings, 356m/1168ft (116 storeys) above the ground. Visitors will walk in groups of six, while attached to an overhead safety rail via a trolley and harness system. Trained EdgeWalk guides will encourage participants to push their personal limits, allowing them to lean back over Toronto with nothing but air and breathtaking views of Lake Ontario beneath them.
The debut assortment will reach stores this month, featuring canvas duffles and backpacks adorned with the familiar Chuck Taylor All Star logo. For those looking for something more refined, leather airline-style shoulder bags in primary colors provide a nice throwback feel.
The world’s most powerful computer is now at the Riken Advanced Institute for Computational Science in Japan
According to The New York Times, the computer, called “K,” is three times faster than the next fastest computer, a Chinese computer, Tianhe-1A, that previously held the highest spot. K, built by Fujitsu, can make 8.2 quadrillion calculations each second. “K” stands for “Kei,” meaning 10 quadrillion, or the number of calculations per second researchers hope K will one day be able to perform per second. K’s abilities are the equivalent of linking one million desktop computers.
K is made out of 672 computer racks, with 68,544 computer processing units (CPUs) but the lab plans to raise that number to 800 racks, a move that will make the machine even speedier and more powerful.
