Trollface, Me Gusta, and many more! All the Rage Faces! - StumbleUpon. Fracture Putty can heal a broken bone in days. Broken bones can mean weeks of having to wear a cast and the muscle atrophy that comes with that. More severe breaks can take months to mend, result in restricted movement, or in the worst cases the possible loss of a limb. There’s also the chance of re-fracture due to the amount of time some breaks take to heal if a patient isn’t extremely careful. Speeding up the time it takes to heal a broken bone is highly desirable, and a solution may be on the horizon. Research being carried out at the University of Georgia Regenerative Bioscience Center has helped create a new gel being referred to as Fracture Putty.

It’s major benefit to those suffering broken bones is its ability to heal them in just a few days, or in the case of severe breaks, cut the healing time to weeks instead of months. Fracture Putty has yet to be tested on humans, but it has already been proven to work in animals. As you’d expect, there’s many uses for such a putty in both human and animal care.

So, naturally, their latest quest would involve greatly decreasing the storage capacity needed for one bit of data, which on today's computers stands at about 1 million atoms. They set out to develop the ultimate memory chips of the future. Starting at the very beginning of density—single atoms—they created the world’s smallest magnetic memory bit and answered the question of how many atoms it takes to reliably store one bit of magnetic information at a low temperature: 12.

By studying the behavior of atoms, researchers can identify crucial factors for building smaller, faster and more energy-efficient devices for business and consumers. A history of innovation As one of the last remaining industrial labs, IBM continues to emphasize fundamental science and investment in R&D. SolarBeat - StumbleUpon.

Nyan Cat Progress Bar is an app that displays the Nyan Cat over the top of progress bars in Windows. The best way to describe it is a screenshot: Why?!

I found a thread on Reddit asking for someone to develop a mod for Windows that replaced progress bars with Nyan Cat. Since Instant Elevator Music does quite a lot of what this hypothetical app would do (ie. it finds progress bars, and plays music), I thought that modifying it to be able to display a Nyan Cat on top of a progress bar would be fairly straight-forward. Nyan Cat Progress Bar is basically a special release of Instant Elevator Music with many of the features removed (ie. no playlists, changing music, support for splash screens, etc.) but with the addition of the display of the Nyan Cat. - Free DNS tools - StumbleUpon. iTools - use the best tools - StumbleUpon.

Anonymity, Darknets and Staying Out of Federal Custody, Part One: Deep Web You've probably seen those deep-web images floating around on the Internet. Usually, it goes something like this: There is a towering iceberg and the deeper the underwater portion extends, the more “hidden” and “exotic” the content is described to be. Sometimes these images are accurate to a point, but most are just making things up. So what exactly is 'deep web' then? Are there really hidden secrets and treasure buried under some cloak and dagger type conspiracy? In this series of articles, I am going to break down the idea of a deep web, what is it, how it got there, and most importantly, how we can use it for our security—maybe even for lulz.

A glimpse into the Future of Productivity - Ubelly. In recent years, intelligent location and social awareness has become a user expectation – almost everything that we touch is in some way intelligently connected to us or other devices around us and technology is starting to second guess our intentions based on the context that we’ve given it.

Sometimes that context is deliberately and clearly identified such as in a diary appointment, other times that context is suggested through our current location or updates to our social streams. As we are starting to expect more and more from the technology that we carry around with us, it’s nice to have a vision of where we’re headed. If you have an idea where you’re going then you’re not going to unintentionally surprise people along the way, and as I often say, technologists seek inspiration in science fiction.

So if you produce a vision then you are going to inspire people to help deliver that vision with you. Social Media News and Web Tips – Mashable – The Social Media Guide.
