Mechanical and mechatronics engineers may want a handy app to calculate data for drilling, milling and turning.

Quixby Deals for Windows Phone
There are so many sites out there now that offer that “daily deal” that it is hard to keep track of them all. Even if you do keep track of them, most of them aren’t going to interest you every single day. Very few people go the length that XDA Member RevisionZero has: he built a Windows Phone 7 app.
Called Quixby Deals, the app is designed with the penny pincher in mind. It compresses all of the major one deal a day sites into a single interface, including New Egg’s ShellShocker. According to RevisionZero it has:
- Access to the Quixby Daily Deal, the various Woot deal sites, and the Newegg Shell Shocker
– Pin the app or any deal tile to your live tiles
– Turn certain deals on or off according to interest
The app is great for those Windows Phone 7 users looking to score the next big deal, so head on over to the thread here or the download page here and give the beta a run through it’s paces. The developer is looking for feedback on this one so let him know what your looking for in future updates.
