What happens to Google Maps when tectonic plates move?
Scientific American
By George Musser: A couple of weeks ago, I was writing up a description of Einstein's general theory of relativity, and I thought I'd compare the warping of spacetime to the motion of Earth's tectonic plates. Nothing on Earth's surface has fixed coordinates, because the surface is ever-shifting.

A look at GNSS antennas
Inside GNSS
With new signals and frequencies coming on line with modernized GNSSs, antennas play a more crucial role than ever in receiver system design. Antennas are often an overlooked or undervalued aspect of GNSS user equipment. Many consumers take the antenna for granted because it is an almost invisible, intrinsic part of receiver design. Mass-market receivers typically have built-in antennas offering no choice for buyers even if they were interested.

It's also interesting that despite the apparent generosity toward alternative energy, less than 60 percent would willingly pay more for improved grid reliability.
