TripAdvisor Trend Data Sees UK Accommodation Improvement Travel rating and review site, TripAdvisor has released a summary of its trend data. The latest update shows an eight year increase in UK service standards, not a bad report card as Britain prepares for an influx of visitors for the Olympics and Jubilee celebrations. The report summary notes the rather quirky nature of accommodation in the UK as presented by mainstream media. Anyone who has stayed in a remote guest house on the edge of a city in Britian, might well have the sense that the comedy series Fawlty Towers has more than a grain of truth. The good news is that the average review rating on UK properties according to TripAdvisor are now rated among the best in Europe. So it appears that there may be less risk of being stuck in a shabby or intrusive hotel. TripAdvisor Trend Data Sees UK Accommodation Improvement

This Week in Media: A Need for Reinvention This was an interesting week in the media world – perhaps not as eventful as the previous ones, but certainly as thoughtful. From theoretical debates to court battles, here’s our recap of the latest hot topics. The death of TV commercials? Dish Network’s Auto Hop may be popular among the company’s customers, but the same isn’t true of content providers. As a matter of fact, Fox finally decided to file a lawsuit against Dish – and competitors could soon follow. Shortly after the ad-skipping feature was launched, media conglomerates such as CBS had already voiced their concern about this potential threat to their business model.

Although Microsoft may have never intended to become a hardware company, it has quietly grown into one in many ways, from the constantly evolving peripherals it creates to the popular Xbox entertainment center. And while the Xbox hails from a different division, “Microsoft Hardware” itself has recently turned 30, and to celebrate, we’re traveling back in time to peek at some of its work — the good (pretty and new) and the bad (ugly and old). From the 1983 goofy (and rather heavy) Microsoft Mouse and the 1994 Philippe Starck experiment to the surprisingly comfortable Arc Touch Mouse and similarly named Touch Mouse, here are the highlights: 1983: The Microsoft Mouse is born. 1999: Microsoft introduces the first optical mouse products. 30 Years of Microsoft Hardware: From Mice to Men 30 Years of Microsoft Hardware: From Mice to Men
holymoleculesbatman: Rivoflavin Also known as... - Stephen holymoleculesbatman: Rivoflavin Also known as... - Stephen RivoflavinAlso known as vitamin B2 is an easily absorbed micronutrient with a key role in maintaining health in humans and animals. It is the central component of the cofactors FAD and FMN, and is therefore required by all flavoproteins. As such, vitamin B2 is required for a wide variety of cellular processes. It plays a key role in energy metabolism, and for the metabolism of fats, ketone bodies, carbohydrates, and proteins. It is also used as an orange-red food colour additive, designated in Europe as the E number E101.Milk, cheese, leaf vegetables, liver, kidneys, legumes, tomatoes, yeast, mushrooms, and almonds are good sources of vitamin B2, but exposure to light destroys riboflavin.

Google Sued in Brazil, Lawyers Answer with Risotto Recipe Google Sued in Brazil, Lawyers Answer with Risotto Recipe Google’s lawyers accidentally included a risotto recipe in an appeal submitted to Brazil’s Superior Court of Justice (STJ), the Brazilian website G1 reports. Here’s the offending document as published by G1: We checked for ourselves, and can confirm it happened, as proven by an official authorization to withdraw the page that contains “a risotto recipe” from the filing, “since it doesn’t belong and is not related to the present process.” Thanks for the clarification, Madam Justice Andrighi! Fun apart, this story is a good example of the legal risks Google incurs in Brazil. In this process, it is being sued by an individual who argues that the company failed to take action when he reported offensive content posted on its first social network, Orkut.
Juicy rumor coming from Pocket-lint this morning: Facebook is reportedly eyeing a takeover of desktop, tablet and smartphone browser maker Opera Software. Citing an unnamed source, Pocket-lint says the social network juggernaut is considering an outright acquisition of the Norwegian software company to accelerate a move onto the battlefields where the browser wars between Microsoft, Google, Mozilla, Apple and since recently Yahoo are being fought. But not so fast. First of all, we asked Opera Software for an official response on the report, and a spokesperson declined to comment. Facebook To Buy Opera? Maybe. Here's What We Hear.

cnet: iPhone 5 coming in October, Apple TV... • Stephen cnet: iPhone 5 coming in October, Apple TV slated to debut in December? Apple could unveil its highly anticipated take on the television in December and ship it next year, according to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster.Munster said he expected the Apple TV product line to cost between $1,500 and $2,000 and range in size from 42 to 55 inches. That’s a considerable premium over typical televisions of that size, which have a range close to $700 to $1,400.The iPhone 5, which Munster believes will debut in October, will be the biggest consumer product launch this year and drive the biggest device upgrade cycle, he said.
Seven 'Must Follow' Sports Teams on Social Media When you think of sports fans, passion is one of the first things that comes to mind. When you think of active social media participants, passion comes to mind just as quickly. This is both a blessing and a curse for sports teams. When things are going well for a sports team, social media channels provide them with a ‘virtual roar’ that can be heard all over the world. But, the ‘virtual boo’ can be just as loud.
