The Social Rewind for January 5, 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.

Happy New Year to our friends and loyal readers! Welcome to the first Social Rewind of 2015. We look forward to another year of fun, info-packed posts…

Leading off this week, EE Times’ post had us thinking about how all these new Connected Cars communicate to each other. Solving the challenges of speed, weight, etc. seem to be a key issue for 2015.

We love learning the history of gadgets and enjoyed this Popular Mechanics post about 10 accidental discoveries of awesome things like microwaves and Velcro.

Did you know that Illinois is the largest producer of nuclear energy in the U.S.? This post by Laboratory Equipment magazine presents 6 things you didn’t know about nuclear power.

MAKE Magazine shared this post about a beautiful stained-glass version of Optimus Prime. Does this mean there’s a Church of the Transformers?
