If you watched last week's iPhone 4S announcement with your Android phone and went a little green with envy when Siri, iOS's new voice-recognizing personal assistant, was announced and demoed on stage, buck up.
A mysterious ailment is causing penguins to lose their feathers, according to researchers at the Wildlife Conservation Society .
By Pamela Meyer Most people are no good at detecting lies. In fact, many are unaware of the nearly 200 lies they hear every day.
A man's facial bone structure can predict unethical behavior, according to new research. New research holds that male facial structure can predict whether or not certain men will engage in unethical behavior. Genetics and hormonal development likely play a primary role in establishing the link between behavior and facial structure in men. This trait also appears to predict success in business and leadership roles. Men who have wider faces relative to their facial height are more likely to engage in unethical behavior, according to a new study in the latest issue of the Proceedings of the Royal Society B.
By Laura Elliott. A number of food manufacturers and retailers are beginning to follow Tesco’s example by holding discussions with their recruiters, in order to exploit a loophole in the law aimed at giving agency workers the same pay as permanent staff. Most recently, Morrisons, the UK’s fourth largest supermarket chain, confirmed that it has “held discussions” with its recruiters over adopting the so-called “Swedish derogation” model, which more or less waives temporary staff’s rights to the new benefits.
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.
Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me. Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal. I've been looking for something different to serve for Valentine's dessert, and this is definitely different.
After this week's disturbing revelation that iPhones and 3G iPads keep a log of location data based on cell tower and WiFi base station triangulation, developer Magnus Eriksson set out to demonstrate that Android smartphones store the exact same type of data for its location services. While the data is harder to access for the average user, it's as trivial to access for a knowledgeable hacker or forensics expert. On Wednesday, security researchers Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden revealed their findings that 3G-capable iOS devices keep a database of location data based on cell tower triangulation and WiFi basestation proximity in a file called "consolidated.db."

Happy New Year! We all know the warning signs.
Does one of the LG cellphone batteries have a sensor on it to cause cellphone failure after the first touch of water? Even though no significant amount of water has penetrated the actual battery or cellphone itself. That’s what Tim wonders after conducting a little experiment and paper hack following dropping his cell phone into a tiny bit of coffee. I recently dropped my cell phone into the last sip of coffee I had in my cup, so I know the liquid didn’t penetrate to any meaningful hardware, especially considering I plucked it out immediately. Stickers, on both the inside of the battery casing (on the phone) and the battery itself, were pink/red when I opened the battery cover, however, very little moisture was present. 5 minutes later my phone turned itself off and I wasn’t able to turn it back on until I plugged it into my charger at the end of the day.
