Top 10 new features in ArcGIS 10.2
GIS User
I'm a big fan of Top 10 lists, and I'm also a fan of the annual ESRIUC, so when there happens to be a Top 10 list featured on stage at the event, I tend to take note! This year, the list focused on the top new features in ArcGIS at R 10.2. ArcGIS product lead Jim McKinney from Esri introduced some of the new functionality on stage at UC, and he was followed up by James Tedrick with his Top 10 new features at 10.2.

NBC News
Someday, swarms of satellites the size of a tissue box will be snapping pictures, taking environmental readings and broadcasting messages from orbit — but the entities controlling those satellites won't be governments. Instead, they'll be hard-core hobbyists and elementary-school students, entrepreneurs and hacktivists. In short, anyone who can afford a few hundred dollars to send something to the final frontier.

Air Force proposes dramatic redesign for GPS constellation
Inside GNSS
With the budget vise tightening, top Pentagon managers are readying some potentially dramatic changes to the GPS constellation — changes that promise to lower both the cost of the satellites and the expense of putting them into orbit. The first changes would be subtle and are linked to buying the next block of GPS III satellites — a decision that sources confirm will be made by the end of September.

Directions Magazine
Real-time data that would be accessible from your geospatial software solution, for traffic, weather or satellite imagery, are one of those allusive promises that you keep hearing about but don't expect to happen any time soon.

New federal smart grid legislation promotes demand response and grid-friendly appliances
Smart Grid News
Go ahead, be cynical. You've earned the right to be skeptical about the current U.S. Congress and its ability to get anything done. Even so, a pair of Democratic Congressmen have introduced new smart grid legislation. Although its prospects for passage may be dim, it does give us insight into how Congress currently views the smart grid and what it may choose to focus on going forward.
