The Social Rewind for April 27, 2015

Are you subscribed to multiple social media networks like we are? Do you find it difficult it to keep up with all of the updates from the people you follow? Do you feel like you’re missing a lot of good information?

“The Social Rewind,” is a weekly compilation of what we thought were the most interesting, funny, or informational social media posts of the previous week. Q Source follows a variety of really fascinating companies and individuals on Twitter, Facebook & Google+ and we want to share the best of what they have to say.

Leading off this week’s column, Tektronix shares news of Oregon State’s creation of a buffering-free Wi-Fi system. We know we sure hate…….buf…..er…..ing.

TE Connectivity’s post looks at a new invention from another university: Engineers at Purdue are converting packing peanuts into Li-ion batteries. Hmmm, perhaps we could light our warehouse with all the packing peanuts that come our way.

After reading this Laughing Squid post about a new frog species that looks amazingly like Kermit the Frog, we’re wondering if a visit to a few farms might turn up a Miss-Piggy-like sow to be the “Hyalinobatrachium dianae’s” girlfriend.
