GM Reconfigurable Performance Display

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.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs Dead? Published Obituary

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.

Yoda Blocked From Facebook

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.

Microsoft’s Mystery Mouse Is Coming

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.

Nike’s New Mind Control Headset

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.

Where Cell Phones Go to Die

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.

45 Beautiful Motion Blur Photos

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.

Cooler Master Unveils Sniper Chassis

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.

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.

World's Largest Record Collection is Worth $50 Mil

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.

Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission Electric Bicycle

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.

Insecta: flies: mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae)

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.

But what the hell is going on in this picture?

‘The End’ for popcorn in British cinemas

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.

Blair’s Hot Sauce 16 Million Product Review

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.

The nation has been growing more diverse for decades, but the process has sped up through immigration and higher birth rates among minority residents, especially Hispanics.

Crying Foul over Online Junk Food Marketing

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.

Playstation Network Helps Cops Find Stolen PS3

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 | The Most active Volcano on the Planet

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.

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.

YouTube Still Not Making Money

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.

Johnny Cash - Hurt



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

I will let you down
I will make you hurt

We're Sorry This Video is No Longer Available - FIX

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.

Large Hadron Collider in Pictures

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.

Sony XEL-1 Digital OLED TV - Worlds First

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.

"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."

New Service Lets Callers Force Voicemail

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.

How to Brew Your Own Coca-Cola [COKE] at Home

On a kitchen table two young women have assembled a variety of items. There are brown bottles, bags of white powder, a pestle and mortar, a collection of funnels, a roll of silver gaffer tape. There is a drill. There is a whisk.

Are they making bombs? Are they making drugs? No. They are doing something far more likely to change the world we live in. They're making their own version of Coca-Cola.

Computer Randomly Plays Classical Music Q261186

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.

MORE INFORMATION

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 LED Jellyfish Aquarium

Made with highly-realistic silicone, the Aquapict jellyfish swim and change color subtly with the five-color LED lighting system (red, yellow, green, blue, and purple). They move by a slow current created in the tank that does not have an obvious flow or bubbles that make it look fake. It looks unbelievably real and beautiful! Aquapict is perfect for bedrooms, desks, offices, restaurants, or anywhere people like to relax.

The Winners of the Wired Saddest-Cubicle Contest

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.
