For Smokers, Quitting May Be Contagious

For better or worse, friends and family members can influence your health. If a close friend or spouse quits smoking, you’re more likely to quit, medical experts say. But what if your friends’ friends give up cigarettes? A recent study shows that the influence of social networks extends much further than you might think.

Sheila Jennings and Tom White met a few days ago on the patio at an outdoor cafe in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, D.C. She opened a pack of cigarettes and asked White, who was seated nearby, if he minded.

CE-Oh no he didn't! Dell Says He Can Take Jobs

Michael Dell's been up on stage here at D for a solid 45 minutes and has yet to say anything particularly interesting (unless you consider rattling off numbers about unit growth, margins, etc. fascinating), but the man got his chance during the audience Q&A. Someone asked if he could take Steve Jobs in a fight, and Dell flatly replied, "Yeah, I could take him." Now there's a fight we'd pay good money to see.

Man Pulls Real Life “Office Space” Scam

Some guy got busted for stealing over $50,000 a few pennies at a time (ala Office Space) from Google and PayPal. Thanks to Milton W. for the linkage.

According to court documents, Californian Michael Largent used an automated script to open 58,000 such accounts, collecting many thousands of these small payments into a few personal bank accounts. Largent also performed the same trick with Google's Checkout service, cashing more than $8,000 alone from the service.

Time stands still for 1-cent parking

There's at least one city left in the United States where you just have to feed a penny into the parking meters: Sycamore, Ill.

Meters in this north-central Illinois city cost a penny for 12 minutes, a nickel for one hour and a dime for two hours, police chief Don Thomas said. And if you have a quarter you can buy 12 hours of parking.

The meters have been in town since the 1920s.

You Think Gas Prices are High?

Drivers in the United States may wince over their seemingly high gasoline prices, but American retail fuel costs are positively inexpensive in light of what motorists elsewhere have to pay.

In the United States last month the average price of a gallon of unleaded gasoline was $2.87, according to worldwide March fuel price data published Wednesday by the U.K.'s Automobile Association.

Contrast that to the adjusted $7.35 it costs Norwegians for a gallon of unleaded, or the $8.37 Britons pay for their petrol, and the American costs are tame.

Baby For Sale On Craigslist

I guess it’s true, you can get just about anything on Craigslist, even a 7 day old baby. The parents claim it was a hoax, Canadian authorities didn’t see the humor in the “joke” and removed the kid from the home. Oddly enough, a German couple pulled the exact same thing just a few days ago on eBay. Maybe they can all share a jail cell.

Police said the advertisement described the baby as "very cute" and "unexpected" and that its parents, who could not afford to care for it, wanted to give it a good home. The child was put in the care of social workers.

GTA 4's Niko Bellic Voice Actor Wants More Money

Actor Michael Hollick, who voiced Grand Theft Auto IV protagonist Niko Bellic, revealed to the New York Times that he was paid just over $100,000 for roughly fifteen months of work, with no royalties or residuals from the $500M earned by the game in the first week of sales.

"Obviously I'm incredibly thankful to Rockstar... But it's tough, when you see Grand Theft Auto IV out there as the biggest thing going right now, when they're making hundreds of millions of dollars, and we don't see any of it," said Hollick.

Decline and fall Portable Stereo : 1985 - 1989

As 1985 progressed, interest in the behemoth stereos from years prior was on the wane. Consumers were less concerned with sound quality and more observant of functionality and cost. The result was a flimsy machine probably sporting twin cassette drives, an equalizer, detachable speakers and a sub $200 price tag. The shoddy craftsmanship and tinny sound could not be missed.

Gone are the days of 10 inch speakers, rich sound and massive weight. Store shelves in the latter half of the '80s were stocked with models like the ones below as boombox sales continued to rise. Like many consumer electronics, ghettoblasters lost their soul during this period, replaced by hollow, disposable boxes. How the mighty have fallen.

Run Your Car on Wood? No Joke.

I’ve heard of making fuel from wood before, but rarely does using wood as fuel come up. However, just today I was pointed to this site, hosted by a local radio station, with a real-life example of someone burning wood as a fuel in his truck.

I can’t say for sure how the system works, whether it’s dual fuel or the wood-burning supplies all the fuel the engine needs, but it doesn’t appear to be a hoax and is certainly interesting. Evidently, during WWII, there was some experimenting with alternative fuels (due to shortages caused by the war), and one of the results was the wood burning automobile.

Smiling Can Hurt Your Health

A German scientist has proved that people forced to smile and take on-the-job insults suffer more and longer-lasting stress that may harm their health.

Dieter Zapf of the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt studied 4,000 volunteers working in a fake call center. Half were allowed to respond in kind to abuse on the other end of the line while the other half had to suck it up, The Telegraph reports.

He found that those able to answer back had a brief increase in heart rate. Those who could not had stress symptoms that lasted much longer.

For some reason I was thinking about this Deep Thought at work yesterday, and decided to do an illustration of it really quick. Not a lot invested in it. I just drew it whilst I watched Pulp Fiction (I actually finished it in EXACTLY the amount of time it took me to watch Pulp Fiction.... wierd.)

Anyway, if you haven't heard of Deep Thoughts by Jack Handy then you should check them out sometime. They are hilarious.

Pac to the future: 7 Ms. Pac-Man fun facts

Don't call Ms. Pac-Man a fad. Leg warmers and Rubik's Cubes, those were fads. The "femme fatale of the game world," as she was initially advertised, remains a superstar 25 years after shooting to fame in 1982.

Ms. Pac-Man is a master of reinvention, hopping from platform to platform to keep her celebrity fresh. She established herself on arcade consoles and today celebrates her 25th birthday with an iPod version of her iconic game.

But even after a quarter-century, Ms. Pac-Man has yet to reveal all her secrets.

From her surname's origins to her "Friends" cameo, here are seven trivia tidbits about the virtual world's most a-maze-ing lady.

How the X-Files Killed Ufology

Cut to Agent Mulder, in repose and helpless as a band of the undead (all victims of a rogue Millenium group member’s failed attempt to resurrect a prophecy), swarm around him. He could have called out to God. He could have called out to his mother. But he didn’t. He called for Scully. Oh Scully so fair with the red, red hair. His knightess in shining armor.

And so it was for nine years. Two of the most popular agents on television, hand in hand, solving some of the worlds most bizarre mysteries. Some say it ushered in a new dawn of thinking. Others say it gave ufology a fresh face for another generation of UFO enthusiasts. I beg to differ.

Beyond Tetris: Minesweeper

Though Microsoft claims that Vista will usher in a new age of PC gaming, the first thing it will do is usher in the old age of PC gaming. Despite hardcore clamoring for high-end graphics-card-melting titles, the only games that the majority of people care about are the ones they've been playing for years.

The ones that are ready with no complications whenever the urge to do something other than work arises, the ones that are packed in with Windows—Hearts, Klondike, Mah Jongg Solitaire, etc. Of the common games that come with Vista, two are true puzzle games; FreeCell will have to wait until another time, because today I'm talking about Minesweeper.

Soap can be made from just about any kind of fat. Even though fat from bacon, called lard, isn't the finest of fats to use for making soap, it somehow seemed to be the most exciting. Why? Because bacon is amazing. It has an almost mystical power to it and is a food that can be craved to almost no end. I figured what better way use the extra grease I had from cooking bacon then to turn it into soap!

Time to add another accolade to GTA IV’s impressive list: Guinness World Record Holder. Guinness confirmed that the US$310 million that Take-Two’s game made in the first 24 hours blows away any other opening day numbers in game, film, and book releases. Yes, that’s 310 million dollars in just 24 hours.

The figures easily push the Rockstar game above all other entertainment record holders, including Halo 3 with $170 million in day one sales, Spiderman 3 with $60 million, and Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows at $220 million.

A Celebration of Utility The Robertson Screwdriver

Canadians will be celebrating an important anniversary this year, and like most of our anniversaries, we’ll be celebrating it largely alone. A century ago, a traveling salesman named Peter L. Robertson invented a new kind of screwdriver -- and its companion screw -- so prompted after he sliced himself silly with a flathead.

Today, his namesake No. 2 remains the Canadian handyman’s standard: A square head with a point, it is a design so simple and perfect that your eschewing it bewilders us. The Robertson never slips, and it never strips, and it can be driven one-handed with nary a wobble.

And while there are pockets of reported Robertson activity in Florida, Texas, and Indiana, thanks mostly to the freethinking folks in the RV industry, you’re probably missing it from your toolbox, and that’s an even greater national tragedy than your ugly money.

In a recent ranking of great Canadian inventions, the Robertson ranked seventh, ahead of the zipper and the retractable beer-carton handle, just one spot behind the pacemaker.

But the Robertson is the real lifesaver, rescuing us from both flatheads and Henry M. Phillips’s vastly inferior product. That sham artist actually had the nerve to suggest that his screwdrivers were designed to slip, to prevent “over-tightening.” Up here, there’s no such word.

Guitar Hero 4 Drum Kit Details - [ PIC ]

Shacknews has the first details on Guitar Hero 4. There is a new drum kit, complete with two cymbal pads and foot pedal, that looks pretty neat. Rock Band fans hoping for compatibility shouldn’t get your hopes up, the article says that it isn’t likely the two will work together. I snagged this image someone stuck up on Photobucket:

As revealed earlier this week, Neversoft's Guitar Hero IV (PS2, PS3, X360, Wii) will bring drum, vocal, and music creation support to the franchise. Now it appears GH4's drum set may not be compatible with the Rock Band drum kit that is already in many gamers' homes.

We're going to focus on Vista's small and large features that are missing from XP, separated into three categories: applications, functional, and aesthetic (e.g., transparency is aesthetic, the new start menu search is functional).

Why You Should Avoid Taking Vaccines

Japan introduced compulsory vaccination in 1872. In 1892 there were 165,774 cases of smallpox with 29,979 deaths despite the vaccination program. A stringent compulsory smallpox vaccine program, which prosecuted those refusing the vaccine, was instituted in England in 1867.

Within 4 years 97.5 % of persons between 2 and 50 had been vaccinated. The following year England experienced the worst smallpox epidemic[1] in its history with 44,840 deaths. Between 1871 and 1880 the incidence of smallpox escalated from 28 to 46 per 100,000. The smallpox vaccine does not work.

Why is yawning contagious?

It may not be one of life’s deepest mysteries, but as scientific conundrums go, it has a peculiar staying power. Why is yawning contagious?

Researchers recently found that yawning isn’t only catching among people; it is also among chimpanzees. No one has devised a fully convincing explanation of why.

Compounding the mystery is the odd way in which the contagious power of yawning is largely unconscious. We can see someone yawn, yearn to replicate the action ourselves, and do it, all without thinking about it.

Other times we’re aware it is happening, though it still floats somewhere beneath the realm of reason and of purposeful actions.

Your CPU May Be Next Rootkit Hiding Place

Security researchers have created a rootkit that can bury itself in an obscure part of the CPU, hiding it from current antivirus products. It will be demonstrated publicly at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas this summer.

Called a System Management Mode (SMM) rootkit, the software runs in a protected part of a computer's memory that can be locked and rendered invisible to the operating system, but which can give attackers a picture of what's happening in a computer's memory.

Apple Settles iPod Lawsuit in Canada

Apple agreed to settle a pair of class-action lawsuits in Canada that accused the company of misleading consumers about the battery longevity of their iPods. If you’ve got an iPod and live in Canada, you may be entitled to a settlement if you meet the requirements. The link to the settlement info is here.

To be eligible, the battery life of their iPods — while continuously playing music — needs to have dropped to five hours or less for the first and second generation of the device and four hours or less for the third generation.

The $15,000 Race Chair

D-BOX, the Canadian manufacturer of high-end motion sensing home theater seats, has entered the gaming market with the new GP-100 Gaming Platform. D-BOX took their award winning motion technology and applied it to create the most realistic racing seat I have ever experienced. They even use a real Sparco racing seat!

The D-BOX GP-100 is expected to ship next month with a street price of $15,000 per chair. While there are lots of rich home owners willing to pay $15,000 for a D-BOX movie chair to add their $100,000+ home theater systems, I have to wonder how many gamers are willing to shell out $15K for a game chair?

i-SOBOT - World's Smallest Humanoid Robot

Recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records™ as "The smallest humanoid robot in production," this 6 1/2"-tall humanoid uses precise mechanics to somersault, stand on one leg, do push-ups, perform martial arts, and even reenact a cowboy duel from an American Western.

The robot has 180 preprogrammed individual movements, a 200-word vocabulary, responds to verbal commands, and performs up to 240 movements in sequence, allowing you to design countless routines, such as programming the device to say hello, introduce himself, play an air guitar, bow to his audience, and say good-night.

Using the included action chart as a guide, simply enter the alphanumeric codes into the remote control and the little droid reacts in earnest with acrob atics, verbal phrases, and greetings, or you can control the robot's movements manually using the dual joysticks and trigger buttons on the remote.

In voice recognition mode, the robot moves in response to 10 verbal prompts such as "Go forward" or "Back up," and acknowledges questions like "How are you?" with appropriate retorts. The robot is controlled by 17 customized servomotors with built-in clutches, and has two gyro-sensors for optimal balance and 23 points of articulation throughout its entire body including the neck, arms, hands, legs, and feet.

Skateboard Design

Though the exact date of invention of skateboards is unknown, it was in the 1940s and 1950s that children participated in soap box derbys where they would race soap-boxes attached to wooden planks on rollerskate wheels. During events like this, some of the soap-boxes became detached from the planks, leaving the rider with what was a skateboard.

The first skateboards were made by taking a roller skate apart and attaching it to a two-by-four. These early skateboards were often used by surfers as a substitute when the waves were low.

Hard Drive Crusher

Whenever I replace a hard drive I usually dismantle the discarded drive for security reasons, and because you can never have too many really strong magnets kicking around.

Other slightly easier methods for wiping the data off a hard drive include degaussing machines or software solutions that write over the original data until it’s unreadable.

But both of those can take a long time, particularly when compared to what the Hard Disk Crusher can do in just 10 seconds. It basically ‘drills’ through the hard drive’s spindles which physically creates ripples in the platters making it impossible to recover any data.

This toy attempts to simulate the false color and silkscreen effect on photographs from your digital camera but really it's a thing all its own. The name "Warholizer" is more of a tribute than anything else.

Cubans Now Able to Buy Home PCs

Cubans started lining up today to purchase an $800 USD computer with a Celeron CPU, 80GB HDD, 512MB RAM, and Windows XP. Being ripped off for low-end hardware is not newsworthy in itself. What makes this interesting is that this is the first time Cubans have been allowed to legally purchase and own a computer. Internet access is still tightly controlled, however.

Crowds formed at the Carlos III shopping centre in Havana, though most had come just to look. The desktop computers cost almost $800 (£400), in a country where the average wage is under $20 (£10) a month. But some Cubans do have access to extra income, much of it from money sent by relatives living abroad.

The customer can't resell the product, examine its underlying coding, use it to control other bot nets or submit it to antivirus companies and agrees to pay the seller a fee for product updates. The threat: Violate the terms, and we'll report you ourselves to the antivirus companies by giving them information about how to dismantle your bot network or prevent it from growing bigger.

Keyboards 'Dirtier Than a Toilet'

According to a recent study, your keyboard is dirtier than a toilet. While I am not saying I believe the accuracy of this report, I still wore gloves to type this.

Consumer group Which? said tests at its London offices found equipment carrying bugs that could cause food poisoning. Out of 33 keyboards swabbed, four were regarded as a potential health hazard and one harboured five times more germs than one of the office's toilet seats.

Hi-Tech BMW M1 Concept

The BMW M1 Hommage blends a wide, aggressive stance with intentionally retro/modern twists on the key visual elements that defined Paul Bracq's original BMW Turbo concept and the Giugiaro-designed M1 homologation special that followed.

It is instantly recognizable as an M1, particularly in profile, where the M1 Hommage's basic shape clearly mimics that of its forebear.

How to Destroy a Brand New Mazda 3

"Fire in the hole!" shouts Ron Hoodenpyle, covering his ears and stepping away from a brand-new Mazda 3 he just wired with special detonators. Suddenly, all six of the car's airbags explode at once.

Within hours the metallic blue sedan will be drained, gutted, squished and shredded -- one of thousands to meet the same fate here. The cars are so new, most don't even have 10 miles on the odometer.

It all started about two years ago, when a ship carrying 4,703 shiny new Mazdas nearly sank in the Pacific. The freighter, the Cougar Ace, spent weeks bobbing on the high seas, listing at a severe 60-degree angle, before finally being righted.

Feds: We Will Search Your Laptop At The Border

Traveling any time soon? Taking your laptop with you? You’d better make sure everything on your laptop is on the up and up because the feds say they will search it. Not the conventional “is-this-thing-a-bomb” search, I mean an old fashioned file search.

Following in the wake of February's news that customs agents were seizing electronics and making copies of all the files on cell phones and laptop hard drives, a federal appeals court has ruled on the legality of such searches. The result: Yeah, customs can do whatever it wants to your computer when you come across the border, without a warrant, and without cause.

Radiohead Says No More Music Freebies

“Yes. It was a one-off in terms of a story. It was one of those things where we were in the position of everyone asking us what we were going to do. I don’t think it would have the same significance now anyway, if we chose to give something away again. It was a moment in time,” Yorke told the Hollywood Reporter.

Windows XP Definitely Dead In June

A spokeswoman for Microsoft says that, despite what Steve Ballmer said last week, Windows XP will no longer be supported after this June. Confusing the matter even more is the fact that OEMs can still continue to sell XP in certain circumstances.

"We feel we've made the right accommodations for customers in certain segments who may need more time to transition to Windows Vista," she said. "But as Steve noted, we maintain a constant stance of listening to our customers and our partners. That's what is guiding our plan, and will continue to guide us going forward."
