General Motors has developed a Reconfigurable Performance Display that can be configured to display a “gauge” for a number of different things like horsepower, temperature, boost and so on. The display is a dealer installed option and cost under $300.
GM's Reconfigurable Performance Display can illustrate a wide range of data in gauge form, such as boost, battery voltage, air fuel ratio, cam phase angle, timing, barometric pressure and even torque and horsepower (the later two likely calculated based on other parameters). The device even includes a g-sensor.
Ummm, how do you publish an obituary by mistake? Either someone is dead or they aren’t….or you have insider information. Maybe there is just a huge database of obituaries at Bloomberg ready to roll in case someone important dies.
An electronic gaffe at news outlet Bloomberg mistakenly sent an incomplete obituary for Apple CEO Steve Jobs over the wire on Wednesday afternoon, and a tipster promptly sent the soon-retracted file to gossip blog Gawker.
The lengthy file contains not only a preliminary obituary for the iconic Apple chief, but also a list of suggested contacts for a more extensive story--Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, and early Apple evangelist Guy Kawasaki, among others.
Heh, a woman with the last name “Yoda” was blocked from Facebook because the Jedi master’s name is on a blocked list. She used the force and Facebook relented.
After contacting Facebook she claims she was told that Yoda had been placed on a name blacklist because so many members pretended to be the fictional three-fingered seer. The website only allows people to join under their real names. “Facebook blocks the registration of a number of names that are frequently abused on the site,” the website’s message read.
The LEGO Company has always produced very good looking sets. They have even created some expensive and hard to build outstanding collectors’ sets like this impressive Millennium Falcon. But what makes the difference is the work produced by independent LEGO artists all over the world.
implants creating embossed text in braille placed under skin, can be read by touch / stroke by blind people. it could be either bead-style implants (in this case the size of the beads should be a bit bigger than the standardized size of braille text. too small beads will sink in the muscles and they will not be embossed) or transdermal implants - placed partially below and partially above the skin.
Guitar Praise, then, might send more souls to the boiling feces rape pits of hell than it saves... at least if any of them connect the dots like I did. A Guitar Hero knock-off for Christians, it costs $99.95 with one guitar and plugs into any Mac or PC.
Normally we wouldn’t be getting all excited over a mouse but, according to the this article, Microsoft is releasing a new mouse on the 9th of next month and the only hint the company is giving is “Say Goodbye To Laser” and this logo.
The obvious guess is that it's a new mouse technology, maybe replacing the internal lasers currently used to determine the relative position of mice. But it could be something else entirely. Microsoft isn't offering any details. Does the shape of the logo provide any clues? I'm doing a little digging, and I'll update this post if I turn anything up.
This historic scream machine has been operating since 1927. The Cyclone also occupies the same space on Coney Island as the world’s first roller coaster, LaMarcus A. Thompson’s Switchback Railway.
It’s also the site of the first successful looping roller coaster, Loop The Loop. Though the 80-year-old structure has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places, it can still go up to 60 miles per hour.

Nike’s new FeelFree Headset is supposed to make you feel better, calmer and more relaxed. If the headset came with that blonde attached to it, I think it just might work.
Advanced technology has been pushed in the form of EEG binaural beats and bone conduction that read brain frequencies and change it toward the applied stimulus, without having a side-effect on user’s hearing. With 4 wave profiles—Meditation, Focus, Learn, Sleep to choose from, it looks we’ve taken a major leap as humans, for this concept lets us gain a substantial control over our intelligence-fueling tool.
This GT5P Racing Pod is pretty neat until you see the $15,000 price tag that goes along with it. Yikes, you can get a decent used compact car and race on your local tracks for that amount!
Racing into the virtual world, we have featured numerous simulators that are customized and modified to satiate the hunger and desire of those seeking the ultimate in the speeding arena. The latest is the GT5P Pod that is believed to be one of a kind. Fitted with a 40″ LCD and a PS3 with DFGT, this cockpit is estimated to crash into your vault to rip off about $15,000.
The Chrono-Shredder is a device that reminds us of both date and time. There’s no on or off button. As minutes pass, a continuous roll of time is shredded until you end up with a big pile of paper by the New Year.
Ever wonder where cell phones go to die? Technology Review has a photo essay that looks at what happens to old cell phones that are discarded or recycled by their previous owners. Raise your hand if you still have an old cell phone (or two) in a drawer somewhere.
More than half a billion cell phones were swapped for newer models in 2007, according to a study by the research firm Gartner. In the past, these phones might have been tossed in the garbage or just stashed in a drawer, but an increasing number of cell-phone vendors are promoting take-back programs, which make recycling an easier option for consumers.
I can’t quite remember how I got the idea, but I thought it would be fun to create some flipbooks based off of video I had shot. The challenge was to be able to efficiently process the frames from a 3-5 second clip, have them printed by a photography shop, and assemble them as easily as possible.
As part of Microsoft Corp.’s commitment to education, the company is re-introducing The Ultimate Steal program this school year, inviting students who are actively enrolled at educational institutions to purchase Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007 at a low student price of $59.95 (U.S.).
This program begins in the United States today with additional countries to be launched throughout the year. The offer will be available to students throughout the academic school year. Office Ultimate 2007 provides students with a comprehensive set of tools that can help them create high-quality documents, gather and consolidate lecture notes and other information, stay organized, find what they are looking for quickly, and easily collaborate with colleagues and professors across geographies.
Photos taken with a camera do not represent a single moment of time. Due to technological constraints these shots stand for some scene over a brief period of time. This time frame depends on the camera’s shutter speed. In motion blur, any object moving with respect to the camera will look blurred or smeared along the direction of relative motion.
Motion blur is frequently used to show a sense of speed. You can artificially achieve this effect in a usual scene using cameras with a slow shutter speed. Also Adobe Photoshop can be used for this purpose, though sometimes images may look unnatural and unprofessional. You may want to take a look at resources provided in the end of the article — they show how one can add the motion blur effect in photos.
Google will be “graduating” Google Suggest from its test labs to its homepage. The new feature, as you might have guessed, suggests search words in real-time as you type. I can’t wait until it is live so I can slowly type the word "analyst" and see what pops up.
Today we're excited because Google Suggest will be "graduating" from Labs and available by default on the Google.com homepage. Over the next week, we'll be rolling this out so that more and more of you will start seeing a list of query suggestions when you start typing into the search box.
It looks as though people in Mexico will soon be able to buy small items like tickets, meals and taxi rides using their cell phone. I wonder if I.D. will be required to use this feature and, if so, wouldn’t that actually make the process slower than using that old outdated thing called “cash?” Do you guys like the idea?
Cell phone users will be able to have their bank link their savings account to their telephone so they can make payments to participating stores, restaurants and taxis by sending a text message, Roberto Rodriguez, in charge of the service, said at a news conference.
What a strange sight: Blue lines covering everything from the floor to the walls and all over the ceiling. If you look close enough at these gigantic blue roots, you realise that it’s all made of plastic rails, more precisely, of blue plastic toy rails we used to play with as kids! And if you look at the patterns longer, you recognise model stations and mountains alongside the rail tracks – one big diorama.
People watching prOn on the plane is just another thing you’ll have to deal with now that airlines are offering unfiltered in-flight internet access . I never thought I would say this but, in light of the recent developments, maybe airlines ought to hand out these things.
The two European Axis leaders during World War II, Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler, riding in an automobile, circa June 1940. This photo was found in Eva Braun’s personal photo albums and is credited to her, though whether she was the true photographer is unknown.
I don’t know if it’s true but I remember hearing (when I was young) that Mussolini had such a small army, that he had to have troops march in front of himself and Hitler, go around the block and march in front of them again.
And so the clock starts and the taillights flare, and they're off again, strapped down, fueled up, and bound on an outlaw enterprise with 2,795 miles of interstate and some 31,000 highway cops between them and the all-time speed record for crossing the American continent on four wheels.
The gear is all bought and loaded. Twenty packs of Nat Sherman Classic Light cigarettes, check. Breath mints, check. Glucose and guarana, Visine and riboflavin, Gatorade and Red Bull, mail-order porta-pissoir bags of quick-hardening gel, check.
Hexus has a preview of Cooler Master’s new gamer-inspired case, the Sniper. Follow the jump for pics and specs of the new chassis, which was introduced at Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany. Looks like an Antec case to me with all that mesh.
The monstrous chassis looks like something of a mix between a Cosmos and a Stacker. The mesh front and sides make it practically see through, bringing a whole new meaning to air flow - and, dust, we might add. It isn't by any means sophisticated, but it does have that "gamer" feel to it. Though, those horrible feet must go.
What's that tasty new flavor in your Hot Pocket? Maybe it's plastic! Nestlé is recalling over 200,000 pounds of Hot Pockets after some pieces of what they suspect is a testing device turned up in the product.
The recall is for 54-ounce, 12-pack cartons of Hot Pockets Pepperoni Pizza with the following printed on the sides of each carton: “8157544614D,” “EST 7721A” and “BEST BEFORE JAN2010.”
If you have some of the recalled product, spit out that plastic and call Nestlé Consumer Services Center at 1-800-350-5016.
Nicole Kuepper, a 23 years old PhD student and lecturer in the school of photovoltaic and renewable energy engineering at the University of NSW, might have just found a way to make the world a better place. Her patented technology isn't quite as simple as the title of this post would lead you to believe, but it should nonetheless reduce the cost and technical requirements of making solar cells.
This is the remote-controlled surveillance camera that pans and tilts at a touch of a button for a range of motion unavailable in lesser cameras, and it sends crystal clear images and audio to an LCD on the handheld remote, allowing real-time monitoring from up to 330' away. Unlike cameras rooted in a fixed position, this one pans 210° and tilts 63° for an optimal field-of-view.
The remote's 2.5" thin film transistor LCD has a 480 x 234 resolution, and infrared LEDs in the camera allow nighttime observation up to 16' from the camera lens. The 2.4 GHz wireless signal operates on three different channels, minimizing interference, and the device includes an AV cable for connecting to a television.
This is a belt-driven turntable that converts and saves your prized vinyl LPs to MP3 format directly to a 5th Generation iPod® or 2nd Generation iPod® Nano connected to its built-in dock.
In addition to providing high-speed vinyl audio conversion to MP3, the turntable plays LPs at 33 1/3 and 45 rpm speeds (adapter included), and its adjustable anti-skating control provides increased stereo balancing. Includes 1/8" RCA output and cable for connection to a stereo system equipped with either a CD or AUX input.
It can also plug directly into your computer with its included USB cable, allowing you to convert your LPs to MP3 using the included recording software (PC/Mac) for the removal of scratches, hisses, and pops, but will operate with any software that supports USB audio input sound cards.
Interesting marketing technique. In Poland, mobile operator Orange paid actors to line up in front of Apple stores to “drum up interest in the iPhone.” These fake queues are in front of 20 stores around the country.
A US company, Hillcrest Laboratories, is suing Nintendo for patent infringement around the Wiimote, the wandlike remote controller packaged with the Wii. Nintendo has not commented on this suit yet.
Hillcrest is accusing Nintendo of infringement in four patents dealing with technology for a handheld three-dimensional pointing device and a display interface system for organizing graphic content on a TV, it said.
This is the only blood pressure monitor that transmits measurements to a detachable wireless display that can be positioned up to two feet from the main unit for optimal viewing. Easier to use than wraparound cuff models, your arm rests comfortably in the enclosed cuff which inflates with a push of a button.
The monitor uses the oscillometric method of measurement to record blood pressure readings accurate to within 3mmHg and pulse rate accurate to within 5%. The LCD panel shows diastolic and systolic blood pressure in 7/8 high numerals, as well as pulse, date, and time.
This mobile power hub is smaller than a deck of cards yet recharges and provides instant auxiliary power to an iPod, BlackBerry, digital camera, or cell phone, eliminating the need to carry multiple chargers and power cords or locate an AC outlet when traveling.
The charger has a USB port and a pivoting USB arm that plugs directly into a device, ensuring compatibility with most electronics, including the PlayStation Portable video game system, Game Boy Micro, Motorola phones like the Razr SLVR, and Rokr, and more. Multiple devices can be powered simultaneously, or the unit can recharge an iPod nano seven times or a BlackBerry three times on a single charge.
The Burj Dubai tower, the tallest skyscraper in the world, is about to be completed. To celebrate it, David Hobcote has taken a series of amazing high resolution pictures from the air which give an exact impression of the breathtaking, massive scale of this building. Inside, it looks like a set from Blade Runner or the interior of the Death Star.
If you're looking for a sign that we live in a digital world that cares not for the physical manifestations of our analog past, you need only look at Paul Mawhinney's record collection. At over 3 million records, it's the largest in the world. He's trying to sell it due to his advancing age and health problems. Unfortunately, as he puts it, "no one gives a damn."
Now, at an advancing age, stricken with diabetes and legally blind, Paul wants to sell the collection. It's been appraised at about $50 million, but Paul is asking a mere $3 million. He's had no serious offers, and an eBay auction back in February fell through.
In this macro close-up, a bromophemol solution is dripped on raindrops found on a daisy petal to test their acidity. The solution is reddish and has turned one drop yellow. The rain is pH 3, the same as vinegar. Photograph by Robert Sisson
This is the electric bicycle that uses automatic transmission to downshift into a lower gear when it senses a hill, upshifts for rapid acceleration up to 20 mph on flats, or allows you to pedal normally because the motor can be disengaged at your command.
Powered by a 750-watt electric motor housed in the horizontal chain and motor assembly that provides 1 hp, the 8-speed automatic transmission is capable of four modes of operation, all controlled by a thumb toggle on the handlebars: a setting for rapid acceleration, a low gear setting for inclines (but slower acceleration), and a setting for manual gear shifting that disengages the motor to preserve battery life.
This is the worlds most versatile flashlight, designed for the U.S. military to provide 20 tactical light functions in one lightweight unit. Slightly longer than a cell phone, the flashlight has a 185° articulating head that houses four different LEDs. It has a bright 1/2-watt bright white LED housed inside a waterproof, gasket-sealed polycarbonate lens used for general lighting purposes.
Its red LED is used for ambient illumination by military aviators at night, and can be used at night for reading maps or observing insects. The green LED is used to preserve a soldiers night vision; can be used with night vision goggles during wildlife observation. The blue LED allows medics to easily identify injuries at night. The lights are contr olled by rotating the on/off switchs rotary collar.
Telemegaphone Dale is a 23-foot-tall wind-powered loudspeaker sculpture that picks up incoming calls and projects them into the nearby surroundings. This Telemegaphone, created by the Swedish designers at Unsworn Industries, is located on a mountain overlooking the village of Dalsfjord in Western Norway. Apparently, a “massive” amount of people have been calling. The sculpture is only “available” when the wind is blowing and the line isn’t busy.

To celebrate its 150th Anniversary and demonstrate an ongoing commitment to design and innovation, international watch brand Timex collaborated with Core77 to carry out a global design competition: Timex2154: THE FUTURE OF TIME that could highlight the state-of-the-art timekeeping pioneered by the company.
One of the runners up at the competition, the TX54 concept presents a disposable timepiece that can be worn on the user’s thumbnail making it an invaluable fashion accessory as well.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has put together a great history of the Internet, augmenting it with video clips, pictures, and other items from their archives to bring the timeline to life. Check it out (you’ll need Flash) when you get some time.
There was a time in the not-so-distant past when the world was not connected. But then a small group of visionaries created the Internet. And changed the world. This is their story.
Culex pipiens feeds itself by drinking floral nectar or the juices of rotting berries and other fruit. After mating, however, a female must obtain a rich dose of protein to finish the development of her eggs. For this, she seeks a large blood-meal from a vertebrate—in this case, from me. Sensitive readers should look away now.
After piercing the skin with her proboscis, she angles and explores until she nicks a venule or arteriole. Meanwhile, her salivary tube pumps out an anticoagulant that helps the flow of blood. When she has found blood beneath the skin, she holds still and, in the span of 90 seconds, distends her abdomen to grotesque proportions with as much blood as she can hold.
Yes, my friends, someone has made a bikini that vaguely resembles a classic NES controller. And suddenly that topless beach sounds a whole lot less appealing. Of course, one day women will go nude except for a pair of gloves. And in that era, we'll be obsessed with thumb to index cleavage (making the Power Glove the de facto accessory). It’ll certainly add a new dimension to UUDDLRLRBA.
No doubt you’re familiar with the Universal Serial Bus – we ranked it as our top PC innovation of all time. But what do you know about the next version of this ubiquitous interface? USB 2.0 (otherwise known as USB Hi-Speed) boosted the original 12Mbps data rate to 480Mmb/s over eight years ago, and now USB 3.0 (dubbed USB Superspeed) is set to multiply that bandwidth tenfold.
One dollar can get you a large soda at McDonald's, a used VHS movie at 7-Eleven or a house in Detroit. The fact that a home on the city's east side was listed for $1 recently shows how depressed the real estate market has become in one of America's poorest big cities.
At the airport yesterday afternoon, after pulling our luggage off the arrival carousel, we decided we needed a bite to eat. What the heck… let’s get something at Burger King.
Divvying up our food items revealed the “Veg City Airport” themed artwork on the Burger King paper tray liner.
Burger King is using the airport security screening metaphor - blocking bad people from getting through the gates - as a way to convey that they (Burger King) simularly screen for only quality ingredients.
But what the hell is going on in this picture?
First I saw a nervous looking onion. Then I noticed it had its pants down. Then I noticed the angry pickle… and then the examination glove?!
Sixteen year old Blake Peebles of Raleigh, NC has dropped out of school with his parents’ permission to pursue a career playing Guitar Hero. We don’t make this stuff up, folks. We just find and report it. Wow.
That is not to say that it was an easy decision for them to let Blake leave school last September. They would have preferred that he stay in high school with his brother. But he bugged them until they let him quit. "We couldn't take the complaining anymore," says Hunter [Peebles, Blake’s mother]. "He always told me that he thought school was a waste of time."
It's taken four weeks, but it's finally happened - Fans of The Dark Knight have started to take some of the Joker's methods into the real world, and are paying the price. But, considering what was actually done in the Joker's name, the price being paid may be far too high.
Don't get me wrong; I'm sure that the cards were upsetting to those that found them (even though all they apparently said was "Joker"), and I agree that they should be charged with something for placing them. But conspiracy to commit an act of terrorism? Really?
Fans of the Treo are abuzz with the leaked details of the upcoming Treo 850 AKA “Treo Pro.” A flash presentation was available for a short time at a page on the palm.com domain yesterday and it contained several shots of the smartphone and associated features.
A combination of health-conscious cinemagoers rejecting sugar-coated popcorn and disgust at its distinctive smell is steadily spelling "The End" for the snack in some arthouse cinema chains, the Observer reported.
It quoted Daniel Broch, the owner of the renowned Everyman cinema in London's upmarket Hampstead district, who recently bought 17 more venues.
"I will de-popcorn every new venue I acquire," he said. "It has a disproportionate influence on the space in terms of its overwhelming smell, the cultural idea of it and the operational problems created by the mess it produces.
First bite was not that hot, so I had the wife take a bite. She threatened divorce once she could speak again, so I tried it again. Then it was hot! So I took a few more bites and had to toss the rest of the pot away - it was too frickin’ hot! And it’s very rare for me to say something is too hot. But this is the hottest hot sauce product known to man. You can buy Blair’s 16 Million Reserve from Sweat ‘N Spice if you think you’re up to the challenge.
There is a nationwide report on actual internet speeds (listed state by state) out today that says our country has not made significant improvements in deploying high-speed broadband networks in the past year. Hit the link and download the complete PDF that shows each state in detail or just use the handy roll-over map to see where your state ranks overall.
Damn, Bill, you have come a LONG way. Look at you there back in '82, you handsome devil. As part of our tribute, let's take a quick look back at the top ten greatest (and not so great) products created on Bill-time, shall we? Don't worry, it'll only sting a little.
Two Northern California men and two Georgians say they've got a body, a photo and DNA evidence pertaining to the elusive forest-dwelling man-ape — and that they'll reveal all at a press conference in Palo Alto, Calif., on Friday.
In the end, it was hackers at DefCon that got hacked. After three days of software cracking duels and hacking seminars, self-described computer ninjas at the infamous gathering in Las Vegas found out Sunday that their online activities were hijacked without them catching on.
In recent years, several teams around the world have shown with mathematics how a cloaking device could work in principle, by making light waves flow around an object - just as water in a river flows undisturbed around a smooth rock.
This kinda stuff is starting to get on my nerves. People blaming TV junk food ads for childhood obesity? The last time I checked, “Lucky the leprechaun” wasn’t doing the shopping for my household. Besides, if your child is addicted to Lucky Charms at age two, the people selling the cereal aren’t the ones that need their asses kicked.
At age 2, Zameen Rashid is well acquainted with Lucky, the leprechaun who lists the marshmallow clovers, moons, and stars in boxes of General Mills' (GIS) Lucky Charms cereal. Maybe too well, says his mother, Fahmida Rashid, who frets that too-frequent exposure to food ads in video games, TV shows, and the Web will foster unhealthy eating habits.
Poisonous or dangerous food is considered a special delicacy by some cultures in several parts of the world. In most cases, a nice feast may turn into a deadly game of Russian roulette. So, would you take the risks of eating these deadly delicacies?
these days it’s not often you’re treated to stained glass artwork that hasn’t been used to illustrate passages from the fact-filled bible, so when i came across the stained glass version of mega man last week i quickly decided to find out whether any other geeky stained glass windows exist. sure enough, after a frustrating search, i found the ones you see below.
While I don’t think Better Homes & Gardens will be doing a feature on this guy’s place any time soon, the geek-cool factor of his choice of “wallpaper” is pretty high. I couldn’t imagine us doing that, we could have built a skyscraper with PC hardware by now.
Sheraton Hotels & Resorts and Microsoft today introduced an entirely new hotel guest experience with its debut of Microsoft Surface, Microsoft’s first commercially available surface computer.

Whether they were notable for their superior performance, or for the superior performers who drove them, RideLust’s list of the 50 Most Famous Cars pays homage to all the truly iconic automobiles of our time. So without further ado, and in no particular order:
Small World is regarded as the leading forum for showcasing the beauty and complexity of life as seen through the light microscope. For over 30 years, Nikon has rewarded the world's best photomicrographers who make critically important scientific contributions to life sciences, bio-research and materials science.
An alarm clock that wakes you up with the smell and sizzle of cooking bacon. No one likes to wake up, especially by an alarm. This clock gently wakes you up with the mouthwatering aroma of bacon, just like waking up on a Sunday morning to the smell of Mom cooking breakfast. Unless you're Jewish.
I had no idea that the PlayStation Network gave out IP info to authorities in situations like this. On one hand, it helped recover the stolen merchandise, that part was cool. On the other hand, the idea that the PSN handed over the IP info so they could obtain a warrant from dude’s ISP is a bit disconcerting.
Police appeared on Waller's door after the purchase, and they inquired as to how he had come across the system. According to the Salisbury Post, the police were able to track the system whenever Waller turned on his system. The original owner of the PS3's PSN ID was still stored on the system, and it was set to auto-login when the system turned on. By tracking Waller's IP address, they were able to find him.
Kilauea is an active volcano in the Hawaiian Islands, one of five shield volcanoes that together form the Island of Hawaii. In Hawaiian, the word kilauea means "spewing" or "much spreading", in reference to the mountain's frequent outpouring of lava.
Issuing lava continuously since January 1983, Kilauea is currently the most active volcano on the planet, an invaluable resource for volcanologists, and also the planet's most visited active volcano.
These images show a lava flow that spilled over a street that runs through Volcanoes National Park in 1993. Photos by MoPo forum member Righteous.

You know, we like Windows but we’ve never lusted after a Bill Gates bobblehead. We are Linux fans but you’ll never see Linus’ head bobbing up and down on my desk. Why anyone would want a Steve Jobs bobblehead is beyond my comprehension.
And the rest is history! I thought of a small sculpture with the face of, whom else? Steve Jobs – My HERO! I immediately ordered my creative juices to not just flow, but rush! And the result was a personalized iPhone charger with a small sculpture having the face of Steve Jobs.
What would the Olympics be without a big, fat BSOD in the middle of the ceremonies? Apparently there were others during the opening ceremonies…makes you kinda wonder where these copies of Windows came from. Heh, good for a laugh.
Let me get this straight, there is going to be a new TV show that lets guys pick between a date with a hot chick or a hot gadget? You’d have to be a hardcore geek to pick a high-def TV over a chick but then again, when is the last time your 60” HDTV nagged you about dishes?
The threesome will go on a date, and at the end, the guy will choose one girl to be his solo companion for the evening. After a few hours together, he must decide if he is going to enjoy an awkward exciting weekend getaway with the stranger, or give her up and leave with some potentially cool gear.

Today our home rely on a network of cables, pipelines and connections. Most of the information we have access to is passing through these "roots." ASCII-Code curtains, by Dutch designer Nienke Sybrandy, visualize the information network in a tree, using the very codes that represent text in computers, communications equipment, and other devices that work with text.
If I bought something for $1.6 billion two years ago and it still isn’t making money (actually costing me $1 million a day in bandwidth), I’d be pissed. Making matters worse, no one seems to have any idea how to make YouTube profitable either.
Despite the site's enormous popularity--it's the no. 5 Web site--YouTube has yet to make money from the massive video inventory it produces. Industry insiders have even estimated that it costs Google as much as $1 million a day in bandwidth fees to serve hundreds of millions of videos, according to Fortune.
If people have been complaining you play games a lot, you can fool them into thinking you are a bbq fan and are just grilling some meat. The latest one to hit the gaming circuit is the Barbecue Grill PC, which conceals a gaming rig and when you open the lid, you see a large wide screen LCD monitor and a powerful PC.
I hurt myself today to see if I still feel I focus on the pain the only thing that's real the needle tears a hole the old familiar sting try to kill it all away but I remember everything what have I become? my sweetest friend everyone I know goes away in the end and you could have it all my empire of dirt
Making your favorite photo into a pop-up is fun and relatively easy. Pop up your family, your pet, your best friend, or you can invent your own imaginary scene using magazine cut-outs and drawings. Here's how...
Every time you hear terms like “Fakeproof, unhackable or crackproof” you just know a story like this is soon to follow.
New microchipped passports designed to be foolproof against identity theft can be cloned and manipulated in minutes and accepted as genuine by the computer software recommended for use at international airports.
“Burial of the Rats” is just one of those movies. Maria Ford is a looker who does her best in this stinker. She looks great in it, as she does in all of her movies. Sadly, all that got her was a career full of slasher movies and bit parts on TV.
During almost one year we searched for means to make the system more reliable and lighter. All components had to be as light as possible still functioning in an oxygen depleted atmosphere, under wind and freezing temperatures. We soon realized that a Jaccuzzi at the top of Mont-Blanc would be just as much a social challenge than technological.

The last month or so I have had major problems watching clips on YouTube embedded or direct. Probably more than 90% of the clips have either just stuck in loading mode or the error message "We're sorry, this video is no longer available" would be displayed while each perspective YouTube video should have been loading.
After searching the Internet for solutions, uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe Flash Player a number of times ensuring that Google Web Accelerator was uninstalled in my case never installed. I was still encountering "We're Sorry This Video is No Longer Available".
If all else fails there could be one setting in Internet Explorer 6 or 7 that is causing YouTube videos to stop loading. Below is the fix that worked for me.
You will need to click on Tools ---> internet options ---> connections ---> lan settings ---> and un click "automatically detect settings". Hope this works for those of you have had no success with flash or Google accelerator.

To many people, crop circles are usually thought to be the work of hoaxers, and every year, more and more elaborate designs appear throughout not only the United Kingdom, but also all over the World. However, over the past month or so, there are 3 formations that begs the question: 'Could these elaborate crop formations really be created by man?'.

How does one actually go about having an atheist de-baptism ceremony? I attended one in Westerville, Ohio over the weekend and there is no Baptismal pool here. All that is needed is a blow dryer — in this case, the Blow Dryer of Reason — held by AA’s Legal Director
Hey kids, want to spend the summer with five of your friends in your very own backyard pool? Then stay the hell away from Banzai's Wild Waves Water Park!

Located in the city of Dunedin, in southern New Zealand, the Baldwin Street has earned the distinction of being the steepest street in the world. This 350 meters long street begins with a moderate slope and then climbs steeply to reach a maximum slope of 1:2.86 or 19 degrees! The street is so steep that it’s surface had to be laid with concrete instead of asphalt otherwise on a warm day the tar would flow down the slope!

Watching the person in this video conduct a mini-symphony using touch tone telephones was rather impressive until you ask yourself…“how’d they com up with that idea?” Were they just sitting there one day with multiple phones and start jammin’? Stuff like this is probably why you never get through to the people working tech support.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 27 kilometer (17 mile) long particle accelerator straddling the border of Switzerland and France, is nearly set to begin its first particle beam tests. The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is preparing for its first small tests in early August, leading to a planned full-track test in September - and the first planned particle collisions before the end of the year.
The final step before starting is the chilling of the entire collider to -271.25 C (-456.25 F). Here is a collection of photographs from CERN, showing various stages of completion of the LHC and several of its larger experiments (some over seven stories tall), over the past several years.
I am amazed that, in today’s day and age, a civilized country still reacts this way to a senseless crime that is obviously using video games as a scapegoat. Had the scumbag blamed God for the attacks, would they have banned the bible?
"We are also urging video game arcades to pull the games from service," Sakchai said. An 18-year-old high school student, now in custody pending further investigations and a trial, faces death by lethal injection if found guilty of robbing and killing a 54-year-old taxi driver with a knife at the weekend.
"Pillowig" is hand made wearable pillow comforting trieness of people in daily lives, enabling users to sleep comfortably whenever and whenever they’d like. When user test is done in public spaces - subway, airplane, library, class room and laundromat, viewers commented: “I would like to have it for my trip.”, “Very funny.”
“This is practical, but a laugh, too." I made 50 limited editions and sold 47 pieces at the exhibition of the work and gained “Pillowig” fans. Two months later fans did a group performance piece at the Old Palace, Seoul.
This is the world's first flat panel television that uses OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) technology to deliver the brightest, most vivid picture available on a screen that is merely 1/8" thick--about the thickness of two pennies. OLED displays are produced not by the bulky, inefficient backlighting found in LCD or plasma televisions, but by carbon-based materials deposited on film that shine brilliantly when an electric current passes through them.
OLED pixels express true-to-life color because electric currents selectively stimulate relevant pixel patterns, producing highly saturated individual colors that combine to form a broad color spectrum similar to the natural world's. To render black colors, pixels "turn off", resulting in com plete darkness and, combined with the enhanced purity of the primary color matrix (red, green, and blue), produces a contrast ratio of 1,000,000 to 1--the highest available and 100 times greater than the industry average.
While typical LCDs have a response time between 4 and 8 milliseconds, this superior unit redraws pictures in less than 0.01 milliseconds for rapid, seamless reproduction of fast moving images, ideal when watching sporting events and action movies.
This is the belt-driven turntable that converts your prized vinyl records to digital music files and saves them on a computer, allowing you to easily store and preserve classic out-of-print music, comedy, and spoken-word recordings for playback on a computer or transfer to an iPod®.
The device connects to a computer via USB and, in addition to providing high-speed vinyl audio conversion to MP3, the turntable plays LPs at 33 1/3 and 45 rpm speeds (adapter included), and its adjustable anti-skating control provides increased stereo balancing.
Includes 1/8" RCA output and cable for connection to a stereo system equipped with either a CD or AUX input. Protected by a dust cover, the system includes recording and cleaning software (PC/Mac) for breaking songs into individual tracks and the removal of scratches, hisses, and pops, but will operate with any software that supports USB audio-input sound cards.
President Hu Jintao said Friday that internet access would not be censored during the Olympics. However, in case China doesn’t honor this pledge, the Global Internet Freedom Consortium (GIFC) is making software available to journalists and tourists in China that will circumvent any censorship.
"The IOC Coordination Commission and BOCOG met last night and agreed," [IOC vice-president Gunilla Lindberg] said, referring to Beijing's Olympic organizers. "Internet use will be just like in any Olympics."
This is an interesting service. Slydial allows you to place a call to a mobile phone and avoid conversation by forcing the call to go immediately to voicemail. Avoidance at its finest here!
The company’s Web site, MobileSphere, suggests several appropriate uses of Slydial, including leaving a message for a girlfriend who is a “talker” to avoid a long conversation, and for a wife when her husband does not want to talk about how much he lost at the tables in Las Vegas during a business trip.

During normal operation or in Safe mode, your computer may play "Fur Elise" or "It's a Small, Small World" seemingly at random. This is an indication sent to the PC speaker from the computer's BIOS that the CPU fan is failing or has failed, or that the power supply voltages have drifted out of tolerance. This is a design feature of a detection circuit and system BIOSes developed by Award/Unicore from 1997 on.
Although these symptoms may appear to be virus-like, they are the result of an electronic hardware monitoring component of the motherboard and BIOS. You may want to have your computer checked or serviced.

Aquapict is perfect for bedrooms, desks, offices, restaurants, or anywhere people like to relax.
The winner -- if you can call it winning -- of the Wired News saddest-cubicles contest is David Gunnells, an IT guy at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. His desk is penned in by heavily used filing cabinets in a windowless conference room, near a poorly ventilated bathroom and a microwave.
The overhead light doesn't work -- his mother-in-law was so saddened by his cube that she gave him a lamp -- and the other side of the wall is a parking garage. Gunnells recalls a day when one co-worker reheated catfish in the microwave, while another used the bathroom and covered the smell with a stinky air freshener. Lovely.
It’s inevitable that as children of the 80’s (and of the video game era, and the computer era, etc.) grow up they will start having children. It’s also inevitable that many will use those children to express their personalities, often with pretty amusing results. Here are 8 good examples of geek child rearing:
