  1. Great podcast, guys!  We may not have the Death Star, but it looks like we’ll have little satellites that can be deployed by fighter jets to give soldiers a better look at tha battlefield!  These little satellites (called SeeMe) can orbit Earth in about 90 minutes.  I had a nerd moment yesterday when I read that.

  2. cruisesm great link Shannon. Sounds like a cool use for tech. Sending that info to a soldier’s or operative’s smartphone is definitely Bond-like.
