Customer Reviews

Good idea, terrible execution

I was excited that ACS was trying to connect science to our everyday lives.
However, they've done a terrible job with this first effort. The concepts are poorly explained, and at an extremely superficial level. The graphics are juvenile. Richard Zare is a great scientist, but does not communicate well in this video; he frequently sounds confused or uncertain. There are factual errors (e.g. stating that there are 3 million base pairs in the human genome -- should be 3 billion). The narration is repetitive, and doesn't provide meaningful support about how these new technologies really impact our lives. As a member of ACS, I'm embarrassed.


Haven't watched this yet but probably won't since it will not sync with my Touch w/ version 4.1 software. I guess it is fine on the iPhone but why limit it?
