NASA’s “Messenger” Sends Close-Up Photos from Mercury

Launched in November 1973, this mission provided new information about Mercury and Venus in the Mariner program’s first dual-planet mission. Beginning in March 1974, Mariner 10′s three flybys past Mercury mapped about half of the planet’s surface, during which time a thin atmosphere and a magnetic field were discovered. More than thirty years later, we went back to Mercury this week, for some better pictures…and it was worth the trip.

Toshiba Satellite U305-S2812 Notebook PC Vs. MacBook Air

toshiba-u305-t24-13002.jpgWhen it comes to thin and light notebooks, Apple’s MacBook Air has been the talk of the town.

You have to look at the hardware under the hood, which if you ask me, is pretty lacking for the price. So I began to search for other thin and light notebook options and came across the Toshiba Satellite U305-S2812 Notebook PC. If we compare these two notebooks spec for spec, the overall advantage easily goes to the Toshiba Satellite U305-S2812 Notebook PC.

Both Internet services are available in most areas and both cost relatively the same amount each month, depending on where you live. What makes one better than the other?
