Yes, that's a real computer and a monitor submerged in a fish tank, with the power on. I found this while I was sorting through the leftover pictures I took from SC07. It has not been photoshopped. Here's a high res version if you'd like a closer look. [See: Full coverage of the SuperComputing 2007 conference .]

Introduction There are a few standard files that every Web site should really have, but that most neglect. Most of these are matters of convention, not of technical requirement, but you are doing your site wrong not to provide them. Let users who make a wild guess about what they want to find usually succeed when they guess URLs. This tip discusses each of these standard files briefly. Exactly how a given resource is provided depends on the Web server and Web application layers you use.
A mind reading machine has edged closer to reality after scientists found a way of converting thoughts into words. Researchers were able to render brain signals into speech for the first time, relying on sensors attached to the brain surface. The breakthrough, which is up to 90 percent accurate, will be a boon for paralysed patients who cannot speak and could help read anyone’s thoughts ultimately, reports the Telegraph.

That’s right, get Kinect-like body tracking without the fancy hardware. With all those front-facing cameras out there, just think of the mobile applications! Minority Report-style HCI, face tracking, improved visual search, and video stabilization are a few examples.
Remember that old commercial about "Zack, the Lego maniac" ? Well, Zack ain't got nothing on Andrew Carol. When Carol's not working on improving the finer points of OS X as a software engineer at Apple, he's hard at work building analog computers -- like the Babbage difference engine -- entirely out of Legos. Recently, Carol has completed his biggest challenge yet: a working Lego replica of the famous Antikythera Mechanism, created by ancient Greeks in 100 B.C. as a way of predicting astronomical events like eclipses. Though pictures of Carol's device have surfaced before, few people have delved into how it functions.
The term ‘geek’, once used to label a circus freak, has morphed in meaning over the years. What was once an unusual profession transferred into a word indicating social awkwardness.
