NASA has applied the first majorupdate to the software running on board the CuriosityRover that landed earlier this month. The new software update was applied over the weekend to make the mobile laboratory more suited to a life on the Martian surface. The older software Curiosity had on board gave it basic navigation capability, but not enough functionality for the Rover to determine whether Mars was habitable at some point.
The new software upgrades Curiosity's image processing capabilities and gives curiosity the ability to avoid obstacles as it rolls around the surface of Mars. The update also enables the Rover to use the drill and scoop at the end of its long arm.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
