The Social Rewind for November 3, 2014

TITLE: The Social Rewind for November 3, 2014

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, Agilent Technologies shared a post describing how static on Bell Telephone’s lines in 1931 led to the discovery of radio waves from outer space.

Transforming Technologies gave us one of those, “I didn’t know that” trivia posts about why the first place ribbon is called the blue ribbon.

So, Lowe’s is trying out Robot Shopping Assistants to help you identify the exact parts you’re shopping for (like screws, etc.). This Robot Magazine post doesn’t mention if the robot assistants can help a couple stop arguing over what color to paint the bedroom.

With Halloween being last Friday, there were a lot of cool holiday-related posts. Laboratory Equipment magazine shared this cool image of a periodic table made of jack-o-lanterns. Geek Halloween at its best!

Of all the cool Star Trek technology, the tricorder has always seemed just out of reach. This Laughing Squid post about tricorder-like disease detection shows us a step in the right direction.

And we close out this week’s column with our post of a little bit of poetry and patriotism recognizing the Statue of Liberty’s dedication.

There you have it…another quick look at a few of last week’s most interesting social media posts. We hope you enjoyed this week’s Social Rewind. We’d love it if you shared other interesting blog posts with us.
