Halloween Surveillance Pumpkin Mods

When you put a bowl of candy out with a sign saying "take one," how do you know that trick-or-treaters are actually complying? Did someone toilet paper your house this Halloween because your lame-ass put a bowl of candy out with a "take one" sign? Well, if you had a surveillance pumpkin you wouldn’t be asking either of these questions. Hit the link for a step-by-step tutorial.

Maserati SUV

The Maserati Kuba x-over concept from designer Andrey Trofimchuk envisions what an SUV from Maserati may look like, if they every built one. Maserati currently does not have an SUV in its lineup, and apparently, there aren’t any plans to build one either. Even though the idea of a Maserati SUV may not please a whole lot of people, Andrey’s design project does a good job at combining Maserati’s design language into an SUV form.

World’s Largest And Loneliest Mall

It was trumpeted as the world's largest retail mall, with shoppers able to browse through 1,500 stores, take a stroll along a mock Venetian canal or even have lunch in front of an 85ft replica of the Arc de Triomphe.

But the New South China Mall, which opened in 2005, stands empty with 99 per cent of its shops having remained unleased and attractions including a 553-metre indoor and outdoor roller coaster standing idle.

It was designed to attract an average of more than 70,000 visitors a day to the city of Dongguan, but has less than a dozen shops in its 9.6million sq ft of floor space.

Bloody Brain Halloween Shooters

Bloody Brain Shooter Channel your inner mad scientist with this Bloody Brain Shooter. Mixing acidic lime juice and Irish cream causes the cream to curdle, creating brain-like strands in the shot.

Ingredients:

1 1/4 oz. strawberry vodka such as Stoli
1/8 oz. Rose’s lime juice
3/4 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream
Splash of grenadine

Preparation:

Chill vodka for better smoothness. Add vodka and lime juice to a shaker, shake and strain into a shot glass. Using a straw, dip some Bailey’s Irish Cream into the shot. Once you submerge the straw into the Bailey’s put your finger on top of the straw to hold the Bailey’s in the straw. Dip the straw tip into the vodka and slowly release your top finger. The Bailey’s will curdle a little bit due to the lime juice and you should be able to make strands of Bailey’s.

Repeat the straw/Bailey’s process to build a “brain” in the shot glass. Add a splash of grenadine to the concoction to add the ‘blood’ to the mix. Down the hatch as a shot.

Facebook Password Reset E-Mail Contains Trojan

A new variant of a popular Trojan is making the rounds. As always, this isn’t something you guys would fall for but we all know people that would so spread the word.

Bredolab is a trojan horse that downloads and executes files from the Internet, such as rogue anti-spyware. To bypass firewalls, it injects its own code into legitimate processes svchost.exe and explorer.exe. Bredolab contains anti-sandbox code (the trojan might quit itself when an external program investigates its actions).

Teenager Audio Test - Can You Hear This Sound?

This sound can generally only heard by people under the age of 25. It has been used as a deterrent device to keep teenagers from loitering in malls and shops, and sounds similar to a buzzing mosquito. Typically the longer you listen to it, the more annoying it gets.

Placebo Effect Caught on MRI

Not only is the placebo effect becoming stronger, but it’s now been imaged for the first time by researchers with fMRI machines. Falk Eippert at the University Medical Centre Hamburg-Eppendorf in Germany led the study:

Later, with an fMRI scanner on, the researchers rubbed “control” and “painkiller” creams onto two different spots on each volunteer’s left forearm and applied the same level of heat to each spot, 15 times.

The fake “painkiller” cream worked: volunteers said they experienced 26 per cent less pain on the “painkiller”-treated patch of their arm, compared with the “control”-treated area.

Meanwhile, the fMRI scanner witnessed the placebo effect. When skin treated with the “control” cream was heated, an area of the dorsal horn located on the left side of volunteers’ lower necks lit up, suggesting increased neural activity there in response to pain. However, this signal disappeared in the “painkiller” trials.

Axolotl Salamanders

The Axolotl is a rare type of salamander, closely related to the Tiger Salamander species. They are about 9 inches long on average, and carnivorous. The cute critters are only native to central Mexico’s Lake Xochomilco, and yes – they are edible, and used to be a staple in the Aztec diet; but they are highly endangered due to the expansion of Mexico City.

New Apple Hardware Announced BT Magic Mouse

Apple on Tuesday released what the company heralded as the first-ever multi-touch mouse, a new product called the Magic Mouse, the successor to the Mighty Mouse.

Apple said that the new multi-touch hardware allows customers to navigate using intuitive finger gestures instead of mechanical buttons, scroll wheels or scroll balls. The entire top surface of the Magic Mouse is a multi-touch surface that can track independent fingers.

The new hardware comes with the new iMac and is priced for standalone purchase at $69.

Whistler Red Light Camera Detector

This is the device that notifies you when you are approaching an intersection being monitored by a red light camera. The detector's GPS compares your automobile's bearings with an internal database of 6,000 red light and speed camera locations in the U.S. and Canada.

The system's 1.6" color OLED screen displays your current position on a digital street map, alerts you to the presence of red light cameras with visual and audible cues, and shows how far away you are from the red light camera. The red light camera database is updated monthly using information from chambers of commerce and state contracts.

The Mutated Insects of Chernobyl

Since 1967, scientific illustrator Cornelia Hesse-Honegger has visited 25 nuclear sites, including that of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, documenting the mutated insects resulting from radioactive contamination. In an interview about her work, Hesse-Honegger said:

I never thought really about myself as being an artist. I just made what I thought was necessary. I thought that these laboratory flies are the prototypes of our understanding of nature, in the sense that we can do anything to nature—we the humans dictate in the end how nature should look like. It was for me the prototype of a future nature, man-made.

The professor who first gave me the mutated flies was convinced, however, that the radiation from Chernobyl had no impact on nature. This is what brought up the question of “low-level radiation.” Nobody was interested in doing research; this is why I thought I had to make these paintings to show the scientists that it would be important to start research in fallout areas.

Worms Are World’s Most Influential Species

“They’re silent, slimy and wriggly, utterly devoid of personality and shaped so that you can’t even tell one end from the other – that’s what most people think about earthworms… Nothing, not even humans, can match the impact these noiseless digesters of the Earth have had on the history of planet, life and people.

Worms are the ultimate survivors with a direct ancestry stretching back an epic 600 million years. That puts us in our place, since our human lineage manages only a paltry four million at a stretch.

180 other things you can to do with a PIG

When we tuck into a bacon sandwich, few of us wonder what has happened to the other parts of the pig whose life has been sacrificed so we can enjoy a juicy breakfast.

Christein Meindertsma, 29, said: 'Like most people, I had little idea of what happens to a pig after it leaves the abattoir so I decided to try to find out.

I approached a pig farmer friend who agreed let me follow one of his animals.'
Identified by its yellow ear tag number, 05049, her pig trail ended with her identifying an incredible 185 different uses to which it was put - from the manufacture of sweets and shampoo, to bread, body lotion, beer and bullets.

Someone losing unemployment benefits because they are making money off their blog isn’t a story…well, unless that income is $1.30 a day. I knew they were picky but I hardly call $1.30 a day "income."

Karin told Forbes she called the state labor department on several occasions, and got different answers to her questions. One time she was told the AdSense earnings should not have been declared as income. Another time she was told she would have to report the advertising income every time she received a check. Yet another time she was told she would have to report work with every blog update.

Striking It Rich: Is There An App For That?

If I had a nickel for every time I heard someone talk about the people that made millions off Apple’s App store…I’d be a millionaire. This Newsweek article kinda puts it all into perspective.

Most apps take at least six months of full-time work and cost between $20,000 and $150,000 to develop, according to Forrester Research, which covers the tech industry. Apple rejects almost 60 percent of submissions at least once, often—according to programmers—with little more than infuriatingly vague or inconsistent explanations.

According to a new NPD report, 85% of all Mac owners also have a PC. That means that "Mac-only" users are only 2% of the marketplace.

Approximately 12 percent of all U.S. computer owning households own an Apple computer, up from 9 percent in 2008. While Apple ownership is growing, those households are decidedly in favor of mixed system environments. Of those 12 percent, nearly 85 percent also own a Windows-based PC.

Controversial Ad of the Day

Sony is known for using some pretty tasteless ads (racist white PSP ad, headless goats, penis pictures, etc.) so I am not sure why I am surprised the company is running this ad in Chile. Who gives the okay on these ads in the first place?

The Five Most Overpaid CEOs

CNN Money has posted an interesting list of the 5 most overpaid CEOs. While the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch actually took top honors I think the guy that was overpaid for BJ Services should have been awarded the pole position.

To make the list, a CEO had to have total realized income -- including base salary, bonuses and stock -- of at least $30 million last year. At the same time, the share price of the companies they oversaw had to have underperformed rivals and the broad sampling of stocks in the S&P 500 over the last five years.

Blu-ray Discs To Feature PSP Movies

Starting November 10th, Sony will begin adding a PSP version to all the Blu-ray movies sold. No more companion DVDs, you’ll be able to rip the PSP version directly from the Blu-ray disc.

Until now, Digital Copy files shipped on a separate DVD-ROM bundled with the Blu-ray movie disc. Now you'll be able to pull the Digital Copy file from the Blu-ray disc straightaway, eliminating the need for multiple media. The feature launches on November 10th with the Blu-ray release of Godzilla. (Though, gotta say, not an auspicious choice of movies there Sony.)

What do you see in this picture?

So what do you see in this picture? Tell us in the comments what you saw in the first place and how long it took you to see what it really is. If you still don’t understand, the answer is after the image.








Well, this is just the shoulder or rather the fold of the armpit of the blonde holding the camera that makes us believe in something else because of the girl behind her.

If you saw a normal picture of three girls, that's fine, if you saw something else in the pic, then you're just a perv!

Entire LIFE Magazine from 1936-1960 Online

Google Books this week made available online the entire run of LIFE magazine’s golden years, from 1936 to 1960. Technologizer talks about the treasure trove and offers tips on the best way to view them. That’s some cool stuff, Maynard.

Okay, Google Books does offer one feature that makes its LIFE archive infinitely more useful than microfilm could ever be: full-text searching of the magazine’s entire history. That’s how I’m finding gems like this 1963 feature on Polaroid’s first 60-second film and this 1964 ad for a Sony TV with a four-inch screen.

Infected Macs Get 43 Cents in Malware Exchange

Still think Macs are impenetrable bastions of virus- and malware-free computing? Pay attention to this eWeek article about what security researchers found in Russia: a malware affiliate network was offering 43 cents per Mac for scareware installs.

"Mac users are not immune to the scareware threat," Samosseiko wrote in a paper released at the conference. "In fact, there are 'codec-partnerka' dedicated to the sale and promotion of fake Mac software. One of the recent examples is Mac-codec.com … the site is no longer available, but just a few months ago it was offering $0.43 for each install and offered various promo materials in the form of MacOS 'video players.'"

Wii Finally Gets a Price Cut

After a few years of watching Microsoft and Sony beat each other over the head with price cuts, Nintendo has been forced to finally drop the price of the Wii by $50.

Nintendo has officially announced that the price of the Wii will drop to $199.99, effective on Sunday. The long-rumored $50 price cut comes in the wake of recent price drops for the PlayStation 3 ($299, with built-in Blu-ray player) and Xbox 360 ($299 for the 120GB version with built-in DVD player and Netflix support), which have boosted sales of the Sony and Microsoft consoles.

Crop Circles on Google Earth

I am a big fan of funny stuff on Google Earth. I like the car crashes, hookers, sword fights, oddball landmarks and the traffic citations involving the Google cars but I think my favorites have to be the crop circles. Ed Cabarles sent me this one (lat: 51°18'39.89"N long: 1°52'56.80"W) as proof positive we are not along in the universe.

MoPo Top 10 Halloween Costumes 2009

What sets Halloween costumes apart from costumes for other celebrations or days of dressing up is that they are often designed to imitate supernatural and scary beings. Costumes are traditionally those of monsters such as vampires, ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils.

There are also costumes of pop culture figures like presidents, or film, television, and cartoon characters. Another popular trend is for women (and in some cases, men) to use Halloween as an excuse to wear particularly revealing costumes, showing off more skin than would be socially acceptable otherwise.

According to The National Retail Federation’s (NRF) 2006 Halloween Consumer Intentions and Actions Survey, the top Halloween costumes for children in the United States are:[2]

Princess
Pirate
Witch
Spider-Man
Superman // Disney Princess
Power Ranger
Pumpkin
Cat
Vampire

The top Halloween costumes for adults are:

Witch
Pirate
Vampire
Cat
Clown
Fairy
Gypsy
