NORAD Tracks Santa Every Christmas Eve PDF Print E-mail
NORAD tracks Santa.jpg
 
Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and every year about this time I try to let my readers know about a great service that is provided by NORAD.
 
The government entity NORAD is a combined effort of the US and Canada that “provides aerospace warming, air sovereignty, and defense of North America”.  Basically it tracks anything in the air to make sure it is not a threat to North America and they’ve been doing that since 1958.  However, since they are uniquely qualified to track aircraft, the organization also is uniquely qualified to track Santa!!!
 
To follow Santa on his journey around the world bringing toys to all the boys and girls, go to the NORAD Santa Tracker.  For those truly interested in when Santa will arrive in their area, the trackers have a phone bank setup where they can answer those types of questions for you!  The trackers are real life soldiers who work at NORAD and they volunteer their time every year to provide this service.
 
I personally want to thank all of the folks in the armed forces who donate their time to this worthy cause every year.  Thanks for bringing Christmas joy to so many of us.  I’ve called and spoken with them before and it was a great experience for the kids involved with that call.  I cannot say enough about how grateful I am for all you do!!!

If you would like to read the complete history of how NORAD came to provide this valuable and FREE service to kids and families, Wikipedia has the whole history of the program here.  I’ve got to say it’s a pretty neat read and something that shows how a “happy accident” can bring joy to so many.
 
 
I don’t think they have a phone service like NORAD does, but their tracker is pretty neat.

Track Your Packages... with an Ornament from the United States Postal Service PDF Print E-mail
USPS Ornament.jpg
 
 
Ever wonder where you packages are?  Me too.  I usually sign up for all the text messaging stuff I can get, just so I know when things leave the warehouse, get to the shippers facility, etc.
 
Now comes a great new idea from the United States Postal Service.  The ornament shown above will track your packages for you and let’s you know the status by changing colors.  Blue means sent, Red means delivered, and Green means opened.  Evidently there is some type of RFID tracking chip in the box that can tell this status.  The chip in the box communicates with the ornament.
 
You buy a box from USPS and the ornament is in the box already preset to communicate with the chip inside the box.
 
I haven’t found out how the chip & ornament communicate, but you plug the ornament in either to a string of lights on your tree or an outlet on the wall.  It comes with a stand if you don’t want it on the tree.  Once USPS logs your box to be shipped into their system, the tracking begins.
 
A cool idea, if I understand correctly, this thing will only work once & with one package which seems a bit wasteful to me.
 
As things continue to evolve in the world of “The Internet of Things” I’m sure we’ll continue to see things like this and major improvements on these types of things.  For the record, I’m betting that Amazon has something in their skunkworks that makes this thing look like a TinkerToy, but that’s just me.
 
The ornaments are in limited supply this year, but should be readily available for next year’s holiday season.
 
 
Super Mario Run is Here! PDF Print E-mail
Super Mario Run.jpeg
 
For those of you who are avid gamers whether on a mobile platform or not, you probably don’t need a reminder, but for those of you who don’t sleep with a controller in your hand, I thought I’d pass this along.
 
Nintendo has, at long last, released a Super Mario game for mobile platforms.  Super Mario Run is now available in the Apple App Store.
 
Nintendo has been hesitant to create a game using its iconic and best known character until they were sure they could get it right.  The game is controlled by only one button which allows Mario to jump.  Everything else is just skill and timing.
 
A free portion of the game is available and the entire game can be purchased for $9.99.
