I had to read TFA to figure out what isostatic is. "Bizarrely enough, if we wanted to reach the Earth’s mantle, our best bet would be to dive down to the ocean floor and dig there; we’d “only” have to go through maybe 3 km of crust, as opposed to upwards of 25 km atop the Himalayas. This concept is known as isostatic compensation, and was actually uncovered by the famed British astronomer George Airy."

Gerorge Airy died in 1892, so I don't think this is really 'news'.

I'm building an iPhone app that tells you (on your iPhone screen) what time it is on your Apple Watch.

It's a way to use your phone, so that you don't have to glance at your watch.

It's going to be awesome. Next I'm going to make a way to show you the iPhone alerts on your Apple Watch, on your iPhone.

I'm seeing a lot of potential here! Maybe one day we won't have to wear a watch at all to tell the time and see notifications...
