Bose Wave Music System Radio Mp3 Player

This compact Bose Wave Music System provides expansive, room-filling sound in an easy-to-use CD player and radio that has an audio range one-half-octave lower than the original Bose Wave Radio CD player.
The music system produces audio comparable to more expensive rack stereo systems thanks to waveguide speaker technology that makes deeper, more expansive sound reproduction possible, so favorite CDs sound like concert-hall performances rather than the tinned sound from traditional small speakers.

The space-saving unit has a front CD loader that plays CDs, CD-Rs, CD-RWs, and MP3 CDs. The unit has no buttons: all functions are controlled via the remote (included). The display has adjustable brightness with automatic night dimming, and tex t line for artist, title, and album information from MP3 CDs. With 48 hour power outage backup included.

Stumbling Tourist Smashes Qing Dynasty Vases

A visitor to a British museum tripped on his shoelace, stumbled down a stairway and fell into a display of centuries-old Chinese vases, shattering them into "very small pieces," officials said Monday.

The three Qing dynasty vases, dating from the late 17th or early 18th century, had been donated to the Fitzwilliam Museum in the university city of Cambridge in 1948 and were among its best-known artifacts. They sat on the window sill beside the staircase for 40 years. The museum declined to say what the vases were worth.

The Cubes This Office You're the Boss

Finally, the drudgery of corporate life has been captured in a play set for adults! The Cubea spend eight hours a day, five days a week, at tiny desks in tiny cubicles in a giant room packed with countless similar cubicles in a giant building filled with countless similar rooms.

Each set has one 2-3/4" posable plastic figure and all the necessary plastic parts to build a classic corporate cube: four walls, desk, chair, file cabinet, in/out box, phone, and computer. Comes with a sticker sheet of decor for your cube, complete with graphs, charts, screens for the computer and pithy office posters.

Microsoft Tricks William "IllWill" Genovese Into Jail

Nobody was ever arrested for leaking the secret source code for parts of the Windows operating system in 2004, but a hacker who sold a copy online afterward was sentenced to two years in federal prison Friday.

William "IllWill" Genovese, 29, will serve three years of supervised release following his prison term, during which he'll be subject to electronic monitoring through special software installed on his computer, under the terms handed down by federal Judge William Pauley in New York. He remains free on bail, and is scheduled to report to prison March 14.

Genovese ran a popular hacking-oriented community website called IllMob.org in February 2004 when two 200-MB files containing incomplete portions of the source code for the Windows 2000 and Windows NT operating systems hit the internet, flooding dodgy websites and peer-to-peer networks like some hard-core geek version of the Paris Hilton video.

Review iMacs Intel Core Duo Models are Faster

Years from now, the Macintosh faithful will look back on January 2006 as a pivotal time for Apple Computer Inc.

That's when Apple started selling its first batch of computers using microprocessors from former rival Intel Corp. In Apple's nearly 30-year history, this is only the second time that the Cupertino company has switched the brains of its Macintosh computers.

Here's the deal: The iMac consumer desktop PCs are the first line of Apple products to get the brain transplant. MacBook Pro laptops will be next, scheduled to go on sale in February. Jobs has said Apple will make the switch to the rest of the lineup by the end of this year.

But Apple isn't the only computer company using that processor. Sony, Acer and Samsung have already started shipping laptop PCs using Core Duo, and other companies will follow suit shortly, an Intel spokeswoman said.

One of the advantages of having a dual-core microprocessor is better performance when you run a number of different software applications. And the 20-inch iMac that I tested -- which had a memory upgrade from 512 MBs to 1 GB -- seemed to benefit as well.

I was able to play the World of Warcraft online game and also surf the Internet using the Safari browser without much of a hitch, while importing video clips from my digital video camera into iMovie HD. The same was true while importing photos from my Canon PowerShot A80 digital camera to iPhoto.

But the graphics in Warcraft stuttered slightly when I started watching television using Elgato's EyeTV Wonder USB 2.0.

Criminals Taking Tips From CSI Crime Show

When Tammy Klein began investigating crime scenes eight years ago, it was virtually unheard of for a killer to use bleach to clean up a bloody mess. Today, the use of bleach, which destroys DNA, is not unusual in a planned homicide, said the senior criminalist from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

"Most people who commit crimes are not very bright and don't take many precautions," Pozner said. "CSI and all the other crime shows will make no difference."

Yet in the six years since CBS, which did not return phone calls seeking comment, introduced "CSI," there's been a trend of fewer clues like hair, cigarette butts and the killer's blood left behind at crime scenes, Peavy said.

Beer Pouring Bot Robot Pours Chilled Drinks

This is it, it has finally happened. I think I can confidently say that regardless of anything else posted here, nothing will ever top this gadget. This is Asahi, a beer pouring robot from Japan.

Japanese beer maker Asahi plans to give away 5000 personal bartending bots, each of which can store up to six cans of beer in a refrigerated compartment within its belly. At the push of a button the simple robots will open a can and pour the chilled contents into a glass for a thirsty owner.

To win one of the beer-bots, in a promotion for the company's new low malt beer, contestants must collect 36 tokens found on the specially marked beers. But the competition, starting in February, is only open to those in Japan.

Some robotics experts see the promotion as a fun way to promote a wider interest in robotics. Others, however, say it is a gimmick that distracts from genuine robot research.

Best Buy Ending Mail-In Rebates

Retailer Best Buy said this week that it will electronically process rebates for notebook PCs and PC accessories, eliminating the mail-in rebate.

The two-year process, begin in April 2005, is already in place with some desktop PCs. Since the beginning of 2006, the policy has been categorically extended to all notebook computers sold by Best Buy, and will be extended to computer accessories in early February. For now, however, the electronic rebate program for laptops will apply just to rebates Best Buy itself offers, and not third-party suppliers.

Michael Coviello Student to Wear Skirt to School

A male high school student from Bergen County will allowed to wear a skirt to school after the American Civil Liberties Union intervened on his behalf.

The ACLU of New Jersey announced Tuesday that it had reached an agreement with the Hasbrouck Heights School District allowing 17-year-old Michael Coviello, a high school senior, to wear the attire as a protest against the school's no-shorts policy.

The district's dress code bans shorts between Oct. 1 and April 15, but allows skirts, a policy Coviello believes is discriminatory.

The organization protested that all students _ not just girls _ are entitled to wear skirts, and that Coviello's fashion statement is protected by the First Amendment.

It took more than six hours for anyone to realize that a 64-year-old Brooklyn man had died on a New York City subway train.

Eugene Reilly, who died of a heart attack, likely got onto a Brooklyn-bound Q train just before 1 a.m. Thursday. He wasn't found until 7:15 a.m. when a curious commuter touched his shoulder, trying to wake him, the New York Daily News reported.

Reilly, a mail handler, worked the 4 p.m.-to-12:30 a.m. shift and was headed home, his wife said. He was sitting up in his seat, which transit officials said was likely the reason their workers left him alone for so long, the newspaper said.

Apple's Intel-based iMac Cost US$873 to Make

Apple Computer’s first desktop PC to be based on an Intel-manufactured microprocessor carries a Bill of Materials (BOM) cost of US$873, according to preliminary data from iSuppli.

The new Apple iMac desktop PC is based on Intel's Core Duo microprocessor, marking a major departure for Apple, which has never used an Intel-made microprocessor in its PCs, instead opting to employ PowerPC chips made by IBM and Freescale over the past decade, said iSuppli. With the introduction of the new iMac, and the Intel-based MacBook Pro notebook PC, Apple has commenced a planned transition of all its notebook, desktop and server PCs to the Intel architecture, said the research firm.

Gold Farming For Fun And Profit EverQuest WoW

Terra Nova has a forum excerpt quoted all about how one gold farmer ran his business in EverQuest. The author made over a hundred grand in his first year of operation, and eventually turned the enterprise into a company doing $800,000 in a year, which supported 16 employees--with health care coverage. (It's probably worth noting that none of his employees were Chinese). Somewhat surprisingly, it seems that most of his employees were husband and wife duos who actually supported families on their gold farming salaries.

My tax return for that year which has salary from 2 months of my job which I quit to make this my full time business, showed $150,623.78 after expenses. By this time I had made another character on another server and bought myself another computer and was playing on two. I killed guards in everfrost and sold the weapons to vendors and then bought items from players, or sold the platinum. That's the entirety of what I did to make that income.

I have played EverQuest for maybe a total of two hours in my life, so while I'm not familiar with some of the terms he uses, the principles are easy to understand. The closest analogue I have in my gaming career to the insane upward drive of the economy due to widespread farming and sale of currency is the Diablo II Battle.net servers--and yes, I'm aware that Diablo II is not an MMO, but its player economy operates very much like one--when it got to the point where there was simply no hope of a new player participating in trade with established players without having to spend money on gold himself. It seems like a similar fate might be in store in the long term for World of Warcraft, which is apparently more conducive to gold farming than EverQuest.

Anti-Nude Law Spring Break Shut Down Daytona

A federal judge struck down Daytona Beach's anti-nudity laws, saying they're unconstitutional.

Regulations prohibiting public nudity and nudity in places that sell alcohol violate the First and 14th amendments' protections of free speech and equal protection, the judge decided.

Daytona Beach also failed to prove its claim that adult nightclubs create secondary negative impacts on levels of crime, prostitution and illegal drug activity in neighborhoods, the judge wrote. Public nudity has been an issue at some Daytona Beach gatherings, such as Biketoberfest and Spring Break.

11 Myths of Surge Protection


This is perhaps the most reasonable, yet the most misleading of all. With no surge protection at all, incoming surges will hit only the computer's power supply (which is considerably more surge tolerant than the data line circuitry), and will not affect the system ground level at all. Since shunt surge suppressors divert power line surges into data lines, using the wrong type of surge suppression can actually cause failures throughout the network. Thus the network is likely to be better off if individual nodes have no surge supp- ressor than if they have ones that shunt power-line surges into data-lines.


Computers are vulnerable to data alterations as bit streams pass through microprocessors. Stray power surges can alter data or programs, causing data errors or lock-ups which cannot be traced. The consequential cost of such soft damage can be very high, especially if errors are not found and data files are contaminated.

Beyond Windows Vista = Windows Vienna

Vienna, once labeled Blackcomb, is the new code name for the successor to Vista. It is not clear when Vienna might ship or what features it might contain. Microsoft confirmed the name change on Friday, but declined to comment on Vienna's stage of development.

"The 'Blackcomb' code name has been changed to 'Vienna,' but we do not have any other details to share on timing or focus," Microsoft said in a statement to CNET News.com. "This does not reflect a big change for us; we have used city code names in the past, which are derived from cities/locations in the world known for great 'vistas'--the kinds of places we all want to see, experience and that capture the imagination. Vienna fits with this concept."

The code name for Windows XP was Whistler, a Canadian ski resort. Blackcomb was also a ski resort, while Longhorn (Vista's code name) came from the Longhorn Saloon, which was about halfway between Whistler and Blackcomb.

Jonathon Sharkey Vampire Seeks Job as Governor

Minnesota voters, who eight years ago elected a former professional wrestler as their governor, may find a self-proclaimed vampire on the ballot for the office this year.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer VS Jonathon Sharkey

"I'm a satanist who doesn't hate Jesus," Sharkey told Reuters. "I just hate God the Father." However, he claims to respect all religions and if elected, will post "everything from the Ten Commandments to the Wicca Reed" in government buildings.

Sharkey also pledged to execute convicted murders and rapists personally by impaling them on a wooden pole outside the state capitol.

Intel Upset Over Apple Ads Customers Boring

Apple's television ads for its new Macs boast that for years, Intel's chips have been "trapped inside PCs--dull little boxes, dutifully performing dull little tasks."

Now, the voiceover proclaims, the Intel processor will finally be set free. Of course, that's not exactly the way Intel would put it.

"Never would we characterize our customers that way," Intel Vice President Deborah Conrad said in an interview. Conrad said that Intel cooperated with Apple for some particulars of the TV spot, but added, "We didn't know what the end result was going to be."

Will Your Intel-Based Apple Mac Run Windows?

The idea of running Windows on the Apple Computer hardware just got a lot more appealing with the introduction of Macs built on Intel processors. But don't expect the Cupertino, California, company, to be too keen on its users running Windows on the new machines.

In fact, if someone had the desire, they could run the Mac OS, Windows, and Linux simultaneously on one of the new Macs, Perens says. "If we take this to its conclusion, you could have three OSes running on these machines at once," he says. "Only a geek would want to do it, but it would be fun."

Even without specific help from Apple, the existence of Macs built on Intel's x86 instruction set eventually will give users a choice of OSes to run on their new Apple machines. Analysts believe it won't be long before someone comes up with a version of Windows that runs natively on the new Intel-based Macs, even despite a firmware incompatibility issue that prevents Microsoft's operating system from running on the new Intel-based Macs.

Margaret Jackson Qantas Boss Suspect Terrorist

QANTAS chairman Margaret Jackson was suspected of being a terrorist and frisked during a visit to the US last year.

The airport security guard who checked her was reluctant to believe that a woman could be the head of an airline. Mrs Jackson said yesterday her briefcase was searched after she went through a security check at Los Angeles airport.

Among her documents were detailed plans of new aircraft, including cross-section diagrams showing seat layouts. "The guy said 'Why have you got all of this?'," she told the Herald Sun.

"And I said, 'I'm the chairman of an airline. I'm the chairman of Qantas'. And this black guy, who was, like, eight foot tall, said, 'But you're a woman'."

High Tech Brakes Stop Grocery Cart Thieves

Robbery and assault were not the only crimes plaguing Penn's campus last semester. Up to 30 shopping carts were stolen from the Fresh Grocer each month, store employees say. But a new high-tech system is stopping would-be shopping cart thieves in their tracks.

Over the holidays, the Fresh Grocer installed electronic brakes -- developed by California-based Carttronics Inc. -- designed to keep the carts from leaving the store's area. Store officials equipped each of the store's 180 carts with a special locking device -- known as the Cart Anti-theft Protection System -- on one front wheel.

Before the mechanism was installed, cart theft was a serious nuisance for the supermarket. A store manager said the store lost up to $3,000 per month due to stolen carts.

MacBook Pro Apple Intel Dual DUO Core PB

You’ve dreamed about it long enough. Now it has a name: MacBook Pro. Powered by a dual-core Intel engine. Up to four times the speed of the PowerBook G4. Eight times the graphics bandwidth. With built-in iSight for instant videoconferencing on the move. And Front Row with Apple Remote to dazzle everyone in the room. Wait no more. MacBook Pro starts at just $2299.

This is the first Mac notebook built upon the revolutionary new Intel Core Duo — which is actually two processors (up to 1.83GHz) engineered onto a single chip. It provides 2MB of Smart Cache, L2 cache that can be shared between both cores as needed. It delivers higher performance in 2D and 3D graphics, video editing, and music encoding. And the new engine is only part of the story. MacBook Pro has a frontside bus and memory that, at 667MHz, runs faster than any previous Mac notebook. It’s the first Mac notebook with PCI Express, a Serial ATA hard drive and the ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 for superfast graphics performance.

Toom, who lives in the northern Queensland city of Townsville, waited for an hour with his knees pressed to his chest before being rescued by local fire squad member Dave Dillon, the newspaper said.

Apple Enters Legal Battle with Burst.com

Apple's declaratory relief complaint, filed earlier this week with the U.S. District Court in San Francisco, came after negotiations to license Burst.com's video and audio delivery software broke down, a Burst representative said. The issue centers on technology used in Apple's popular iPod player and iTunes software and service.

According to a copy of Apple's complaint, Burst approached Apple in late 2004 regarding securing a license for the Burst technology. Burst's attorneys then informed Apple that Burst believed Apple was infringing on its patents, according to the complaint.

Is That a Bull's-Eye On Your Wallet?

This high-stakes "hacktivism" makes great headlines, but law-enforcement officials worry that it is distracting attention from a far more worrying trend: rising Internet fraud. While hacktivists seek maximum public exposure to advance a political cause, fraud is all the more insidious because perpetrators and victims conspire to keep it hidden. This year promises to be the worst yet. Identity thieves are expected to steal more than $1 trillion. Cybercriminals are making so much money—more than the illegal drug trade last year, according to the U.S. Treasury—that they've been doing their own R&D.

Another innovation among fraudsters is to target kids. Waller warns that keyloggers, an advanced form of spyware, are making their way onto the MP3 files that Junior happily downloads to the family PC. These tiny programs track every keystroke the user makes, allowing fraudsters to monitor and record online transactions.

Chevrolet Camaro Concept Car 1964 - 2006

People thought American two-door performance cars were dead. The Chevrolet Camaro and the Pontiac Firebird went out of production in 2003. That left just the Mustang hanging on.

It's not hanging on anymore. With its 2005 redesign, the Mustang has taken off, selling like it did in 1964 when it was first introduced. The 2006 concept was particularly inspired by the 1969 version of the Camaro.

The concept car has a prominent front grille and hood bulge. Large wheels (the front wheels are 21 inches in diameter and the back wheels are 22 inches), exposed high-performance brakes, and prominent fender shapes add to the "muscle car" theme.

Play Sudoku Online | Sodoku Play Free

Sudoku (Japanese: , sūdoku), sometimes spelled Su Doku, is a logic-based placement puzzle, also known as Number Place in the United States.

The aim of the canonical puzzle is to enter a numerical digit from 1 through 9 in each cell of a 9×9 grid made up of 3×3 subgrids (called "regions"), starting with various digits given in some cells (the "givens"). Each row, column, and region must contain only one instance of each numeral. Completing the puzzle requires patience and logical ability. Although first published in a U. S. puzzle magazine in 1979, Sudoku initially caught on in Japan in 1986 and attained international popularity in 2005.

Lindsay Lohan Vanity Fair Drugs Bulimia Battle

While Lindsay Lohan, admitted to a Miami hospital Monday night after suffering a severe asthma attack, is now "resting comfortably," an explosive interview with the Mean Girls star hits newsstands Wednesday – and lifts the curtain on her self-confessed bulimia, drug use and emotional wreckage over her relationships with her volatile father and her first boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama.

Lindsay Lohan Vanity Fair Cover

"I was making myself sick," Lohan, 19, admits to Vanity Fair magazine, of her bulimia.

She credits Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels and head writer Tina Fey with helping solve her eating disorder by staging an intervention. "(They) sat me down, literally before I was going to do (SNL), and they said, 'You need to take care of yourself. We care about you too much, and we've seen too many people do this, and you're talented,' and I just started bawling. I knew I had a problem and I couldn't admit it."

EyeBud iBud Turns Video iPod into Big-Screen TV

The system, dubbed the EyeBud 800, is another entry in the booming ecosystem of accessories and complementary products that has emerged around Apple's portable music player. But this isn't in the realm of a $20 carrying case. Scheduled to debut in the first half of this year, the EyeBud is expected to retail for as much as $599 -- $200 more than the cost of a 60-gigabyte iPod.

Gary Jones, president and CEO of eMagin Corp. of Bellevue, demonstrates his company's new wearable display for video iPods.

But eMagin's executives are betting that the notion of a virtual big screen will win people over. With the proximity of the screen to the eye, and the magnifying effect of the company's optical technology, the company says that using the headset is akin to watching a 105-inch display from 12 feet away.

Calculus Explains Why You Have a Girlfriend

This is a question that practically every male has asked himself at one point or another in his life. Unfortunately, there is rarely a hard and fast answer to the query. Many men try to reason their way through the dilemma nonetheless, often reaching a series of ridiculous explanations, each more self-deprecating than the last: "Is it because I'm too shy, and not aggressive enough? Is it my opening lines? Am I a boring person? Am I too fat or too thin? Or am I simply ugly and completely unattractive to women?" When all other plausible explanations have been discounted, most fall back on the time-honoured conclusion that "there must be Something Wrong™ with me" before resigning themselves to lives of perpetual chastity.

We start with the largest demographic in which I am interested — namely, the population of this planet. That is not to say I'm against the idea of interstellar romance, of course; I just don't assess the prospect of finding myself a nice Altairian girl as statistically significant. Now anyway, the latest halfway-reliable figures we have for Earth's population come from the United States Census Bureau's 1999 World Population Profile [WP98]. Due presumably to the time involved in compiling and processing census statistics, said report's data is valid only as of 1998, so later on we'll be making some impromptu adjustments to bring the numbers up to date.
