This is the kind of item that gets a professional surveyor excited.
The DNR's Matt Dontz found this original cedar survey post in a stream near Atlanta, in Montmorency County recently. The General Land Office of the U.S. government did the survey of Michigan's townships in 1850. The post was set to mark a section, or quarter corner and were driven into the ground each half-mile. It was preserved by the water, Forestry and Surveying experts agree the find is extremely rare, even with today's GPS technology.
Mashable reminds us that even as Apple iPod sales continue their decline in the face of growing iPhone and iPad sales, Apple continues to redesign and innovate in the product category that essentially revived Apple revolutionized the music industry in the early part of this century.

The latest iteration is smaller than the palm of your hand, but twice as large (or tall) as the previous model. More startling is the fact that the interface for the tiny nano and the new, thinner, but longer iPod touch are completely different.
