Matt’s Favorites: Dell Buys Dell, Hollywood Drones, Facebook Vacations, And 3D-Printed Human Stem Cells

And now, ladies and gents, the very latest from the wide and wonderful world of technology. Check these out!

* He’s getting a Dell, dude! Dell founder Michael Dell strikes a deal to turn around the computer company.

* Well, I suppose this is a less controversial use of drones — Hollywood wants to use ’em to shoot footage.

* Here’s a look at the app Lift and how it can help you keep those resolutions.

* But there’s also an increasing trend to take “vacations” from Facebook. (I’ve done it, but so far only for a weekend at a time. The gravitational pull of letting the universe know what I think about stuff is strong.)

* Here’s the latest in 3D printing — using it to create human cells. As in stem cells. That could be grown into new organs for you. Wow.

* This is a very cool use of cameras aboard the International Space Station — very long exposures at night.

* In news that was made Wednesday when it was still Tuesday night in America, Google wins a landmark advertising case in Australia, as the country’s High Court ruled the Internet giant was not responsible for messages conveyed by paid advertisers on its site.

* Instagram launches an online photo feed.

* Is individual, pioneering scientific genius a thing of the past? Maybe.

* Here’s one more worry about that job interview — making sure it doesn’t turn into free consulting for a company that never intends to hire you.

* How about this next advance — transparent transistors, printed on paper.

* That new BlackBerry will be released in the United States in mid-March.
