A very elegant crystal glass tumbler, handmade in Germany. However this glass tumbler has a very special trick. Place it on the table, give the glass a spin, and it keeps on spinning!

Either empty, or with a drink in it, the underside is specially designed and hand finished. If you choose the glass with a spiral design, the spiral either seems to be moving up the glass or down, depending on which way you spin the glass. The other design has two ovals engraved into the glass, and when you spin the glass, these loop around in an intriguing fashion. Designed in Russia and made in Germany, this was a winner of a Red Dot Design Award in 2009.

The condition, called feather-loss disorder, has been seen in penguin chicks in both sides of the Atlantic Ocean the past few years and is featured in a recent edition of the journal "Waterbirds," the conservation society said in a press release.

Feather loss in pet birds has long been a common ailment seen by pet stores and private owners, but researchers studying the penguins in the Atlantic said this is something different. Disease is not the only recent peril that Atlantic penguins have faced. Microsoft May Add Eavesdropping To Skype. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office published a Microsoft patent application that reaches back to December 2009 and describes “recording agents” to legally intercept VoIP phone calls. The “ Legal Intercept ” patent application is one of Microsoft’s more elaborate and detailed patent papers, which is comprehensive enough to make you think twice about the use of VoIP audio and video communications. The document provides Microsoft’s idea about the nature, positioning and feature set of recording agents that silently record the communication between two or more parties.

The patent was filed well before Microsoft’s acquisition of Skype and there is no reason to believe that the patent was filed with Skype as a Microsoft property in mind. However, the patent mentions Skype explicitly as an example application for this technology and Microsoft may now have to answer questions in which way this patent applies to its new Skype entity and if the technology will become part of Skype.
