Motorola ATRIX 4G Lost Contacts

Many users of the Motorola Atrix 4g were blindsided when their phones updated to gingerbread without asking them very plainly if they wanted to. What *MUCH* worse is that most of their contacts were missing when the update had finished.

Thankfully this happened enough for Motorola to release a fix.(thanks to Mark at ) for the quote
To get the application, search the Android Market for an app called "Contacts Restoration for Atrix" or, push the application to your ATRIX from a computer using this Android Market link:
And here's the forum thread where he linked this program..

It restored 53 of my wife's contacts, and I get to be the hero :D

Hemispherical Omnidirectional Gimbaled (HOG) Wheel = FAST Robots!

This invention uses my favorite electromechanical component, the BLDC motor, Brushless Direct Current Motor. The motor is attached to a hemispherical wheel, this wheel's contact with the ground both propels and steers the vehicle.

The point is , the motor is a Airplane motor and it moves the car across the ground as fast as an airplane propeller rotates! I saw three or four websites embed this video and they just said "It's cool" but I wanna tell you what you'll see....IT'S Fast!
