Why Google's Nexus 7 Tablet Is Hotter Than Apple's iPad
WASHINGTON—Americans across the nation confirmed today that, unfortunately, due to their extreme familiarity with the type of tragedy that occurred in a Colorado movie theater last night, they sadly know exactly how the events following the horrific shooting deaths of 12 people will unfold. While admitting they "absolutely hate" the fact they have this knowledge, the nation's 300 million citizens told reporters they can pinpoint down to the hour when the first candlelight vigil will be held, roughly how many people will attend, how many times the county sheriff will address the media in the coming weeks, and when the town-wide memorial service will be held. Additionally, sources nationwide took no pleasure in confirming that some sort of video recording, written material, or disturbing photographs made by the shooter will be surfacing in about an hour or two.

What are your best examples of people cheating "the system"? I'll start.... : AskReddit I work in a typical office building, but today I saw something interesting. Lazy Coworker #11 has been leaving around lunch time to go to the gym. Except I had to get something out of my car and I saw her (in her workout clothes) eating out of a tub of fried chicken. I didn't say anything but she walked back in 15 minutes later saying how sore she would be tomorrow. What are your best examples of people cheating "the system"? I'll start.... : AskReddit

Mull of Kintyre test Kintyre is highlighted in red. The "Mull of Kintyre" properly refers to the headland at the southernmost end, but in this context the apparent angle of the whole peninsula is the relevant standard against which a penis would be compared. The Mull of Kintyre test or Mull of Kintyre rule was an unofficial guideline said to have been used by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) in the United Kingdom to decide whether an image of a man's penis could be shown. The BBFC would not permit the general release of a film or video if it depicted a phallus erect to the point that the angle it made from the vertical (the "angle of the dangle", as it was often known) was larger than that of the Mull of Kintyre, Argyll and Bute, on maps of Scotland.

Amidst all the batteries, fuel cells, flywheels and other technologies trying to bring energy storage to the building scale, there’s one technology that’s as simple -- well, almost as simple -- as an icebox. Thermal energy storage is its name, and the basic idea has been around since the 1920s. Put a device on your roof that makes ice at night when power’s cheap, then uses that ice during hot days to augment air conditioning operations, and avoid buying expensive peak power. This form of storage can’t do everything that batteries can do: it can’t pump power into the grid, for instance.

As a graphic designer I have to deal with alot of people basically destroying all the hard work me and my coworkers put into a project. At first, I couldn't handle it, now I just find it funny to see where a project goes. But today, I had a client yell at me for telling me that the images we used were too low res for their word document. Me: Sorry but we can not boost the quality of the images, we receive from you. As a young professional, I am still getting used to dealing with clients. But today took the cake in terms of idiocy.

The Peter Principle is a management theory which suggests that organizations risk filling management roles with people who are incompetent if they promote those who are performing well at their current role, rather than those who have proven abilities at the intended role. It is named after Laurence J. Peter who co-authored the 1969 humorous book The Peter Principle: Why Things Always Go Wrong with Raymond Hull. They suggest that people will tend to be promoted until they reach their "position of incompetence". Overview[edit] Peter Principle Peter Principle
New Skintight Spacesuit Design Unveiled July 17, 2007Can an engineer bring sexy backto the future? Dava Newman, a professor of astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, just might if her new space suit design makes it off the launching pad. Yesterday she unveiled the BioSuit, a skintight, next-generation space suit prototype that she and a team of researchers have spent seven years developing. The new suit, which Newman is modeling here, could make space exploration safer and easierand maybe a little more fashion forwardthanks to specially reinforced fabrics.

The laser-powered bionic eye that gives 576-pixel grayscale vision to the blind After a lot of theorizing, postulating, and non-human trials, it looks like bionic eye implants are finally hitting the market — first in Europe, and hopefully soon in the US. These implants can restore sight to completely blind patients — though only if the blindness is caused by a faulty retina, as in macular degeneration (which millions of old people suffer from), diabetic retinopathy, or other degenerative eye diseases. The first of these implants, Argus II developed by Second Sight, is already available in Europe.
Think about it, you have a device on/in your keys/TV remote that relays their location to your mobile device, which then pushes a highlight overlay of them in your virtual field of vision. You'd never lose your keys/remote again! And then, consider that reverse vision-reading would also be possible via the photocapture capabillity. You could flip through a book in seconds, and use high speed image capture to record every page. The laser-powered bionic eye that gives 576-pixel grayscale vision to the blind. : science

Jelly bean has introduced some amazing ways to interact with our phones. Specifically, I'm talking about the automated functionality of Google now and the assistant-like styling of their voice search on top of that. Google have laid a very solid foundation to improve on. But, yes, their are some glaring holes in the interaction that just don't sit well with me. Today I suddenly realised I needed to renew my TV license at some point in the week ahead. I whipped out my phone and eagerly spoke into it "Remind me to renew my tv license tomorrow". With the assistant-like improvements in jelly bean, it is now absolutely essential that Google integrate their Tasks functionality into Android. : Android
