This is the automated home winery that vinifies up to four cases of wine using traditional winemaking techniques combined with modern oenological technology, conducting the entire post-harvest process in its stainless steel chamber, cold soaking, pressing, and fermenting the grapes, and aging the wine for six to twelve months (or less, depending on personal preference).
Immediately following harvest, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are crushed, frozen, and sent to your home, ensuring your vintage is made using only the finest premium grapes. The system automatically monitors the entire winemaking process including fermentation, Brix (grape sugar level), and temperature, and wirelessly transmits the information to a PC, allowing you to log, graph, and analyze the information using the included software, ensuring optimal conditions for your preferred wine taste
This cushioned inversion bench gently stretches your back in less than two minutes using only gravity to help relieve strain on the spine and vertebrae. With regular use, it decreases spinal compression, relieves disk and nerve root pressure, and eases cervical tension that can lead to pinched nerves and headaches.
Headline of the day is brought to you by the fine folks at Popular Science. And yes, this was an actual study, conducted by real scientist.
The students were tested for physiological strain and driving performance as they drove through rural communities and desert scenes, and past roadblocks and pedestrians. One group smoked low and high doses of THC. Another downed vodka and "orange drink" cocktails to reach Israel's legal limit of .05 percent blood alcohol content. Others took a placebo.
These side view mirror extensions enhance your field of view by 9', providing a distortion-free reflection that helps you merge, change lanes, and back up with confidence.

These are the headphones with circumaural earcups made entirely of African zebra wood. Both the natural high density of zebra wood and the elliptical interior of each earcup control standing waves and resonance that can muddy a signal, providing rich, full sound. The soft sheepskin earpads block outside sounds and provide comfort.
Want to know what all the fuss is about regarding the Palm Pre? Gizmodo’s got you covered by putting together an informative FAQ and guide to the most hyped phone since the iPhone. I’ve very interested in getting one, though being a Sprint-exclusive at launch dampers my enthusiasm a bit. Good thing my company offers a decent Sprint discount.
When and where can I buy it? June 6, and you can buy it at Sprint Stores, Best Buy or Radio Shack. Sprint Premier customers—if you don't know what that is, you're not one of 'em—will be able to hit up a special launch party in select cities on June 5.
What the?!? Since when did an all-purpose lubricant ever require its own social network? Move over Facebook, WD-40 is the new social network in town.
Yes, the WD-40 Co. has launched The Money-Saving Tool community. At this budding Peyton Place of cyberspace, members are encouraged to share money-saving tips and tricks—through stories, photos, videos, what have you—to show the creative ways they protect their investments and avoid paying for expensive repairs or replacement goods. According to the WD-40 Web site, the substance boasts more than 2,000 uses.
This is the remote controlled Cessna that executes powered take-offs, mid-air maneuvers, and nimble landings, unlike typical remote controlled aircraft that must be hand-launched and cannot land.
Its four-channel radio enables precise control over the throttle, rudder, elevator, and aerilons--the same control surfaces found on real airplanes that affect pitch, yaw, and roll.
Its brushless electric motor drives the propeller to provide an average speed of 50 mph in level flight, and when executing a steep dive, it can reach speeds of up to 80 mph--all controlled up to 1,000' with the remote. Click here for more information...
This is the tool preferred by astronomers at the Palomar Observatory that combines the unmatched brightness of a green laser pointer with a high-intensity flashlight. The 532nm green laser pointer is 20x brighter than lesser red laser pointers and provides an unmistakable beam of light that appears to reach the stars--ideal for identifying distant objects, whether a constellation or a mountain summit.
Joe writes, “My tattoo is 3 lines of equations, the top is the Born Oppenheimer Approximation, the second line is the equation in the form of a 3-Dimensional Schroedinger Equation, and the solution in the form of a Schroedinger Equation.
I sport a much cooler - and more comprehensive - full-body tattoo of string theory. Unfortunately to see the full thing you have to be able to see in 11 dimensions. All that shows up in our 4 dimensions is a tattoo of chinese symbols that my Chinese friend says questions my “orientation”. I can’t believe how lucky I was to find the tattoo guy that was an expert in string theory AND was willing to give me an 11-dimensional tattoo for only $20.

Combining the National Geographic Magazine's award-winning photojournalism with its renowned cartography, this is the definitive world atlas with 550 detailed physical, political, and regional maps and 350 color photographs.
The atlas is the first of its kind to display UNESCO World Heritage Sites, selected to represent the cultural and natural heritage of the world, on global, continental, and regional maps.
I'm sure quite of a few of you remember them, but before cell phones became so common place, we had these things called 'Beepers' or 'pager' and all it would do was signal someone that you wanted them to call you back, by placing your own number. Well, calling back wasn't always an option, as some people would be in their cars and there were no text messaging available at that time, so there were unofficial text message codes.
It would be a 1, 2 or 3 digit number, with a predefined message allocated to it and that is how you would send a short message. People would have to carry a little folded piece of paper that had these codes on them to either know what they were sending and what they were receiving, although some were easier to remember than others. Anyway, I still had one of these sheets...
Yes, some people would actually pull this sheet out and communicate with their buddies via their beepers. Also, the font and printing technology was piss poor back than too, as you can tell.
The fiery coach spent two seasons behind the Flames bench, and went 88-60-16 in that span. "Our team did not meet expectations," said Flames general manager Darryl Sutter in a release.
"Following detailed evaluation over the past three weeks, and taking into consideration all factors affecting our season-ending result, we believe this is a necessary change required to allow our team to continue toward our objective of winning the Stanley Cup."
Calgary exited the playoffs early in both years that Keenan, 59, was behind the bench, falling in the opening round each time.
The Flames lost to San Jose in seven games during the first round of the 2007-08 campaign, and bowed out in six versus Chicago in this year's opening round of the post-season
This is the teppanyaki grill that allows you to prepare authentic hibachi cuisine indoors or outdoors using the same cooking principles developed 200 years ago in Japan.
The teppanyaki grill is mounted to a wheeled stainless steel cart and all of its electric components are sealed to resist moisture, ensuring ease of mobility and safe storage outdoors. The entire surface of the teppanyaki is the cooktop--just like the grills in Japanese steakhouses--and its open design allows you to interact with guests as you cook.
This is the portrait of your DNA profile, allowing you to prove, once and for all, that your existence is truly unprecedented. A professional testing laboratory performs agarose gel electrophoresis (the same genetic fingerprinting technique used by forensic scientists) on a cotton swab that you simply touch to the inside of your cheek.
The portrait is a larger reproduction of the DNA images used in crime labs; the size of the lines and their location on the painting represent a genetic sequence that's unique to your genome.
What Daddy's little girl wants, Daddy's little girl gets. So when Missy Quinn insisted on a big white wedding with her boyfriend, her father said YES. It didn't matter that she was only 16 and the groom 17.
Daddy also said yes to a $32,000 wedding dress (which looked suspiciously like a crop top and skirt) and yes to 150 guests at the reception. Then there were the cars, the hotels, the tiara and the $10000 bouquet!
Missy and Thomas honeymooned in Turkey before moving into their own $36,000 trailer - a wedding gift from her parents.
This book and three DVD-ROM collection captures every front page from The New York Times, recalling 157 years of world-changing events and news that "The Gray Lady" deemed fit to print.
The book has more than 300 of the most significant Page Ones, faithfully reproduced right down to the bolded headlines in Cheltenham typeface and honorific style that are the hallmarks of The Times' staid presentation. It begins with the first issue, published on September 18, 1851, and readers can trace the history of the U.S. and the world chronologically until March 19, 2008, using the same headlines, running text, and photographs that The Times printed that day.
Twenty landmark dates, including Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, the iconic "MEN WALK ON MOON" headline, and the September 11th terrorist attacks are presented in foldout, full-size pages.
This is the meticulously detailed, full-scale replica of James Tiberius Kirk's captain's chair from the original Star Trek television series. The chair is constructed from the design conceived by Matt Jefferies, the set director and art designer from 1966 to 1969--only 1,701 are being produced.
A press of the former yellow alert button (located at the front of the right armrest) produces one of nine original sound samples from the series, including the entirety of the famous prologue: "Space... the final frontier..." spoken by William Shatner. Other samples include "Kirk to Engineering... Mr. Scott, report!," "Position report Spock?" and more.
Seven sound effects are produced by activating the former red alert button, including the classic intercom hail, phaser and photon torpedo sounds--even the ambient background bridge noises. The chair includes various toggle switches, knobs, and buttons from the series that invoked the jettison of pods and activated the main viewscreen.
Here’s a site that can keep you busy for a long time! This virtual tour of the White House has current floor plans of each floor and section of the building as well as ground layouts -PLUS historical floor plans from various eras in its history. Click on the rooms to see photos of what’s inside, and how the room looked in the past.
Each page has more information, such as which president and First Lady slept in twin beds or separate rooms. I learned about the “bachelor suite” used by young men who courted Woodrow Wilson’s daughters, and how Zachary Taylor’s slaves had to climb a ladder to get to their attic rooms.
“Placebo” is Latin for “I shall please.” Placebo trials are used to tell researchers whether a tested drug has any healing effect beyond that which occurs a certain percentage of time when people take an inert pill. A patient’s belief in a pill - a supposed medicine, but chemically innocuous - is thought to activate their body’s healing powers.
Okay, this has to be the most unintentionally funny headline of the day. Thanks to grampsthebrixthrower for the laugh.
A man who police said was drunk threw a brick and smashed the front window of the Apple Computer store at 679 N. Michigan Ave. Tuesday night, police said. Robert Grilly, 61, of the 400 block of East Ohio Street, was arrested and charged with two misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property.
This is the alarm clock that faithfully reproduces the subtle wit employed by P. G. Wodehouse's most famous character--the valet Reginald Jeeves--as he politely affirms the beginning of the day. The clock plays 126 different wake-up messages in the reserved voice of Stephen Fry, the original actor from the English comedy Jeeves and Wooster.
When the alarm sounds, Jeeves speaks softly as he assuages your displeasure that the morning has indeed come: "Excuse me sir, I'm so sorry to disturb you, but it appears to be morning... Very inconvenient, I agree... I believe it is the rotation of the Earth that is to blame, sir," or asks "Shall I inform the news agencies that you are about to rise, sir?"
If you are not roused sufficiently, a series of beeps will ensue; a press of the clock's rosette cancels the beeps, prompting Jeeves to interject "Sir has a firm touch, but fair," as one of ten possible snooze replies. A press of the rosette at bed time initiates a three-minute relaxation message with ambient music. Made of wood and handpainted in a subdued lacquer.
This is the waterproof video camera that can submerge down to 15' to capture distinct color variations of coral reefs as well as a grandchild's first underwater flip. Slightly larger than a deck of cards, its slim profile opens to reveal a 2 1/2" TFT LCD color screen. With the included 2GB SD memory card, the 8-megapixel camcorder can capture up to 60 minutes of high-resolution (640 x 480) video footage at 30 fps.

When we listen to a song, it triggers a part of the brain called the auditory cortex. Researchers at Dartmouth University found that when they played part of a familiar song to research subjects, the participants' auditory cortex automatically filled in the rest -- in other words, their brains kept "singing" long after the song had ended [source: Prokhorov].
The only way to "scratch" brain itch is to repeat the song over and over in your mind. Unfortunately, like with mosquito bites, the more you scratch the more you itch, and so on until you're stuck in an unending song cycle.
Thanks to electroluminescent technology, this homemade Iron Man suit has glowing eyes and arc reactor, adding to its authenticity. Everything was custom molded and cast in fiberglass, including the wearable one-piece helmet.
Jan Vormann once again indulged his passion for Plastic! This time, in Berlin, he "dispatched" mostly holes that remained from the World War II.
At some very touristic hot-spots, (Kupfergraben corner with Dorotheenstraße) a whole lot of people of all ages spontaneously started "helping" him with the dispachwork project and plastic construction pieces in all colors, between old stones, gave an interesting new twist in Berlin.
This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that's when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to 'howl at the moon' from time to time (if you catch my drift!).
The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn't have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn't settle for the first thing that comes to him.
I arrived at Wal-mart, mounted my courtesy-scooter (walking is such a drag!) sitting side saddle so that my wolves would show. While I was browsing tube socks, I could hear aroused asthmatic breathing behind me. I turned around to see a slightly sweaty dream in sweatpants and flip-flops standing there. She told me she liked the wolves on my shirt, I told her I wanted to howl at her moon. She offered me a swig from her mountain dew, and I drove my scooter, with her shuffling along side out the door and into the rest of our lives. Thank you wolf shirt.
Pros: Fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women Cons: Only 3 wolves (could probably use a few more on the 'guns'), cannot see wolves when sitting with arms crossed, wolves would have been better if they glowed in the dark.
This home made LEGO flamethrower is as cool as it is dangerous. The video is unintentionally funny, especially when the candle thing fell off the end of his flamethrower after the flame burns through the rubber band holding it on. Yeah, I said rubber band. Don’t try this at home:
Today’s installment of "tech-FAIL" is brought to you by the Nikon S630 and its awesome blink detection feature. "Did someone just blink?" Heh...this is one of those times, when you don’t want to laugh but you can’t help it.
Remember those "fake" PS3 Slim pictures that surfaced last week? Well some Chinese company has sent Engadget a cease and desist order asking them to remove the pictures. Hmmm, odd since I’ve never seen a cease & desist over photoshopped pics before, maybe these are legit? Hit the link to read the letter and see all of the previously posted pictures. Here are a few for those of you too lazy to click:
While this page isn’t in English, you don’t need a translator to read the specs on this thing and check out the pictures / video. With a 1.6GHz Atom, 1GB DDR2-533, HD video and a $240 - $399 price tag, this would be an inexpensive way of putting a PC on the LCD in your living room.
No, this isn't Photoshopped - it's a real image, taken from a helicopter among the apartment buildings of mainland Hong Kong. Photographer Jason Hawkes captures bizarre human-made formations from the air - some unrecognizable.
This is in England, in a lot where cars and vans are stored before being shipped out to dealers. When Hawkes flew overhead, it just happened to be red SUV day.
Dell’s new "Della" website for the chiX0r3z is pissing women off? Well, at least one lady got her shorts all bunched up over the site. Shame on you Dell! Broads have rights too ya know.
Want to market netbooks as a fashion statement? Fine. Just don't create a silo for women in a Web site like Della, that depicts females as poolside-lounging, latte-sipping ladies with little else to do than decide how to match their outfits to a computer.
A new, ground breaking study has revealed that people pirate popular music and, for some odd reason, don’t pirate unpopular stuff. Amazing! In other news, diamonds are more popular with thieves than coal, water is wet and the sky is blue.
There was little evidence that file-sharing sites helped unsigned and new bands find an audience, it found. It suggests file-sharing sites are becoming an alternative broadcast network comparable to radio stations as a way of hearing music.
The first thing to know is that the mind isn't a mirror, or even a passive observer of reality. Much of what we think of as being out there actually comes from in here, and is a byproduct of how the brain processes sensation.
In recent years scientists have come up with a number of simple tricks that expose the artifice of our senses, so that we end up perceiving what we know isn't real - tweaking the cortex to produce something uncannily like hallucinations. Perhaps we hear the voice of someone who is no longer alive, or feel as if our nose is suddenly 3 feet long.
It has been called the discovery of the 7th sense. The research into this phenomenon has been described as being of "Nobel calibre". It has been featured in numerous publications around the world, and in the United States it became a household name in the late 90s.
It is called Reverse Speech, the phenomenon of hidden backward messages in speech. It initially gained worldwide fame in the early 80s as those strange backward messages in rock and roll. Since that time, research has progressed significantly and it is now known to exist in all forms of human speech.
All human populations share the same 27 known blood systems, although they differ in the frequencies of specific types. Given the evolutionary closeness of apes and monkeys to our species, it is not surprising that some of them share a number of blood typing systems with us as well.
Through history, as natural selection played its part in the development of modern man, many of the useful functions and parts of the human body become unnecessary. What is most fascinating is that many of these parts of the body still remain in some form so we can see the progress of evolution.
What in the hell is going on at AT&T? When a hazmat team is called in over a nasty-ass office fridge and seven people end up in the hospital, something is seriously wrong.
An office worker cleaning a fridge full of rotten food created a smell so noxious that it sent seven co-workers to the hospital and made many others ill. Firefighters had to evacuate the AT&T building in downtown San Jose on Tuesday, after the flagrant fumes prompted someone to call 911. A hazmat team was called in. What they found was an unplugged refrigerator that had been crammed with moldy food.
Human hair is a simple thing made of keratin and dead skin cells. Its function is to prevent heat loss from a person’s head, yet it also causes women to weep, men to buy Porsches and people to spend billions each year on its upkeep. Throughout history, humans have used their hair to represent their class, indicate religious faith and piss off their parents.
Such a simple thing as human hair leads to all kinds of complexities. Here are examples in which hair is more than just a dandruff jungle, so check out these 5 things you didn’t know about human hair.
This pyrometer uses an infrared beam to detect radiant energy and measure the surface temperature of a sauté or grill grate, allowing you to instantly determine when a cooking surface is sufficiently heated for optimal searing of steaks or for the gentle browning of pancakes.
A built-in laser guide displays a red dot on the object being measured, and the thermometer has a distance-to-spot ratio of 9:1, ensuring accurate readings from up to 5' away.
Contrary to the image of Generation Y as the "Net Generation," internet users in their 20s do not dominate every aspect of online life. Generation X is the most likely group to bank, shop, and look for health information online.
Boomers are just as likely as Generation Y to make travel reservations online. And even Silent Generation internet users are competitive when it comes to email (although teens might point out that this is proof that email is for old people).
"The question is, how much time and energy do I want to spend chasing these guys," Stephen King wrote in an e-mail message. "And to what end? My sense is that most of them live in basements floored with carpeting remnants, living on Funions and discount beer."

These XBox controller soaps from Etsy seller Digitalsoap are scented with essence of Mountain Dew for a caffeinated clean. There's also a line of Playstation, NES and Wii controller soaps, as well as phone and iPod soap.
This amusing remote-controlled cooler can travel across a patio, rug, or kitchen floor to deliver a well-timed beverage to parched party guests. With room for 12 cans or bottles and ice, the cooler rolls on four sturdy underside wheels up to 40 feet from the host at the controls.
The remote features simple controls that send the cooler forward, backward, and progressively left or right. With sides of water-resistant insulated vinyl and a secure zippered lid, beverages stay cold for hours.
These are gloves that play musical notes when the fingertips are tapped against any flat surface. Each glove can play an entire octave in the key of C; pressing on the heel of the hand changes the middle three fingers to the final notes A, B, and C, completing the scale.
Both gloves connect with a wire to an integrated speaker unit that provides volume and tempo control for eight different tones, including piano, violin, mandolin, and more (including an additional six different percussion tones); 30 different rhythms are provided.
Ten years ago, Duke Nukem Forever was expected to become just as big a hit as those did. But constant delays -- the game's release date was originally intended to be in 1998 -- caused it to become something of a running joke, topping Wired magazine's annual Vaporware Awards list for seven years out of eight.
Will this gamer ever be collecting the pre-order he placed in 2001?
Answer: probably not. His $10 deposit was placed on Duke Nukem Forever, a first-person shooter that, after being in continuous development for an unprecedented 12 years, was suddenly canceled yesterday.
The millionth word in the English language could end up being noob? Now that is pretty damn funny! I’m not holding my breath but it would be cool if it happens. In the future, when scholars and historian look back on the decline of the English language, you can tell your grandkids you were there when it all started.
'Noob' could well be the millionth word in the English language – a milestone set to be reached within the coming weeks. The news comes directly from the Global Language Monitor that estimates the millionth word in the English language is set to arrive on June 10th, 2009 at 10:22 am, British Summer Time.

You are all tax cheats! If you’ve ever bought something online, this guy says you are probably a tax evader. Well…sorta.
Unless you live in Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, or Oregon, if you regularly buy things online then you are probably a tax cheat. Technically speaking, if you buy something online and don't pay sales tax as part of the purchase, you are obliged to pay the tax yourself (unless you live in one of the five states with no sales tax).
If you’ve ever wondered how well one of those Roomba things worked, this picture will answer that question. If you ever wondered why anyone would take a long-exposure picture of a Roomba at work…well, the guy that submitted the pic goes by the nickname "Doobybrain." Question answered.
Here it is. Who as a photographer is unimpressed at the shot? I mean, you can see the jet fighter's windshield reflection in the photo, it's the highlight above AF1's nose. Not much care or thought was really taken in regards to the composition or technicals in the shot. This almost seems like an afterthought.
The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute commissioned a baseball instructor to test pitching machines, and this one proved to be the best because it was the most accurate and quickly adjusted to hurl fastballs, curve balls, or sliders.
Made by Jugs Sports, suppliers to professional and collegiate baseball teams, the best pitching machine consistently pitched baseballs and softballs through the strike zone, unlike lesser machines that were inaccurate and inconsistent.
You can adjust the best pitching machine to throw fastballs and right- or left-handed curveballs and sliders at the turn of a dial, while other models required complicated adjustments or did not pitch sliders at all.
Using a patented two-stage cartridge, this shower filter neutralizes the harsh effects of chlorine and other impurities in tap water, leaving your skin feeling softer and your hair looking fuller and more lustrous.
In the filter's first stage, Kinetic Degradation Fluxion (KDF) granules restore water's pH balance and remove up to 99% of chlorine that can strip your body's natural oils, resulting in dry skin and brittle hair. Its second stage uses carbonized coconut particles to remove chemicals and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can be absorbed through the skin.
Designed to meet requirements set by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration, this carry-on eliminates the hassle of removing your laptop from the bag and hastens airport security screening.
The bag's laptop compartment folds down, lies flat on the X-ray machine belt, and has a clear plastic window, providing security personnel with the same image quality as a laptop placed in a bin.
Ideal for keeping travel items organized, the bag has 20 pockets, including a gusseted compartment with a file divider and nine pockets for storing laptop cords and peripherals.
Easily accessible pockets hold a boarding pass and a passport. A reusable clear, zippered bag holds allowable liquid and gel containers and dual cargo pockets stow metal objects and other items that need to be removed for screening.
A recipient of the prestigious Medical Design Excellence Award, this is the hand fitness trainer that can slow the progression of osteoarthritis and mitigate the effects of repetitive-motion injuries in the hands. The device slips on like a glove and has elastic bands that strap to each fingertip, providing resistance as you open your hand.
By flexing your hand in the opposite direction of its typical motion, the trainer strengthens the extensor muscles in your hands, wrists, and elbows, helping to reduce the painful symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, and tendonitis. Ideal for people whose careers or hobbies require manual dexterity, the device strengthens underused muscles and increases flexibility of overworked muscles in the palm, resulting in improved muscle balance and joint stability.
I know most people with a new Core 2 Duo or Core 2 Quad would feel safe thinking their processor will support Windows 7 XP Mode but, if you have certain CPUs, you might be out of luck.
Now, three years later, it appears to be time for the "Vista Capable" sequel. How much positive Windows 7 buzz will be wiped out in coming weeks and months when consumers and business buyers discover that a heavily hyped new Windows 7 feature, XP Mode, won’t work on some Intel-based products?
Proof that a Norwegian skier unintentionally made a record-breaking cliff jump has emerged. Footage showing free skier Fred Syversen shooting over a 107 metre (351 feet) cliff has been leaked nearly a year after the event took place.
The record had been in contention because of a lack of evidence. But the new video shows Syversen making the accidental, record jump . Syversen, who was filming a ski video at the time was preparing to undertake a massive cliff jump in the French Alps.
There is plenty of evidence that "second-hand" smoke - breathed when you are in the same room as someone smoking - can be harmful, particularly to children, and some parents adopt a strategy of never smoking in their child's presence.
You know what I like best about massive gigapixel images like this? You can spend hours looking over these things and never run out of cool stuff to see....like the hot chick in the white super-tight-shorty-shorts talking on the phone. Ahhh, I love technology.
Internet-age innovator Google is taking advantage of an old-time principle to thwart wildfires: goats will eat almost anything. Google has brought in about 200 of the grazers to munch fields around its campus in the Northern California city of Mountain View.

Ever wonder why there’s a 160-character limit in an SMS message? The LA Times has a story that answers that very question. Click on through to read about Friedhelm Hillebrand and the typewriter in 1985.
Before his typewriter experiment, Hillebrand had an argument with a friend about whether 160 characters provided enough space to communicate most thoughts. "My friend said this was impossible for the mass market," Hillebrand said. "I was more optimistic."
The animals are often over-worked, under-watered and under-fed, and have the added burden of frequently carrying passengers who are too heavy for them. Haggling is common as credit crunch tourists negotiate rock bottom prices and quibble over the last pound.
Owners, whose livelihoods are dependent on these earnings, are often left short changed and are tempted to overwork the animals in their desperation to bring in enough money to feed their family.

The carbon dioxide emission reductions from these 1 million electrical vehicles in Germany's transportation sector would be only 1 percent, according to the study, and overall national carbon dioxide emissions would only be cut by 0.1 percent. "That is not a very big deal," Raddatz said, adding that "it is not going to help us out of the transportation emission mess."
On a serious note, is there any reason we couldn’t make an electric car with dual / switching battery packs? You’d have one that operates the car while the other is being charged by the spinning of the wheels. That way, you could charge the car once and forget about it. I’d pay more for a self charging car, wouldn’t you?
English explorer Henry Hudson set foot on an island called Mannahatta 400 years ago. The Manhatta Project has recreated the island as it appeared in 1609, with forests, wetlands, and a vast array of wildlife. See views of Manhattan side-by-side with a computer recreation of what it looked like before it became a city.
