Creating a rotating animation in android

Lets you spin the selected View canvas in the XY plane.

// Create a rotate animation.

RotateAnimation rotate = new RotateAnimation(0, 360,
RotateAnimation.RELATIVE_TO_SELF, 0.5f,
RotateAnimation.RELATIVE_TO_SELF, 0.5f);

Room-Temperature Spintronic Computers Coming Soon? Silicon Spin Transistors Heat Up and Spins Last Longer!!

ScienceDaily (Mar. 16, 2011) — University of Utah researchers built “spintronic” transistors and used them to align the magnetic “spins” of electrons for a record period of time in silicon chips at room temperature. The study is a step toward computers, phones and other spintronic devices that are faster and use less energy than their electronic counterparts.
