Maybe you’re bored, sick or lethargic. Perhaps you just got some bad news that has left you feeling slack-jawed & useless. Maybe you’re worried about your sister, or fighting with your husband. Perhaps it’s just raining outside, like it is here today! Whatever the case, sometimes you just want to indulge in a little escapism. (Oh, I should warn you… I have dreadful taste in movies!) Enjoy! 10 Things I Hate About You This was my favourite movie when I was an angsty teenager! “Iwis it is not halfway to her heart. here. (500) Days Of Summer Okay, this one stars Joseph Gordon Levitt too! I fell in love with (500) Days Of Summer immediately. It’s a total indie rock love story. It is so wonderful. The Addams Family Firstly, I think this movie is responsible for many, many aspects of my adolescence. If you’re not familiar, The Addams Family started as a cartoon in The New Yorker in the 1930s, & became a television show in the 1960s. P.S. Amélie Burlesque
Siri Says the Darnedest Things As one of the staple features of the iPhone 4S, Apple’s new voice assistant software, Siri, and many of its unusual responses have become a popular topic of discussion. In fact, several websites have been created for the purpose of distributing some the technology’s most amusing and bizarre interactions users have had with the technology. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites and verified them on our own devices to ensure credible LOLs. Open the Pod Bay Doors Someone at Apple must be a Stanley Kubrick fan, because when asked to open the pod bay doors, Siri responds in the same fashion that homicidal supercomputer Hal-9000 did in the 1968 film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, stating "Sorry, [user's name] I'm afraid I can't do that." Source: ThisIsMyNext.com Lost iPhone 4 Prototype Joke Last year, tech blog Gizmodo obtained an early prototype of the iPhone 4 that had been lost at a bar by an Apple employee and revealed it to the world long before Apple's planned announcement.

How-To: Easily Remove the Vocals from Most Songs | r3dux.org 2015 Shortcut: When I wrote this article Audacity didn’t have an automatic center-panned vocal canceling effect… but now it does, so rather than do the stereo-separate / invert-one-track / play-both-as-mono trick (and that’s pretty much all there is to it), you should be able to find the Vocal Remover option in the Effects menu – but it’s more fun / interesting and can give better results if you do it yourself! =D I found this trick the other day whilst stumbling the Interwebs and thought I’d do a quick-write up w/ pictures to make it as easy as possible… For this exercise we’re going to be using a piece of free audio software called Audacity, which you can get for Linux, Windows and Mac. Update: If you’re trying this out on a Mac, please make sure you get Audacity 1.3 Beta or newer – the stable 1.2 version appears to have a missing equaliser decibal-range slider which you need towards the end of the process! 1.) 2.) 3.) With that done, give it a play and see what happens! 4.) 5.) Wrap Up
EN TUS BRAZOS Top 10 Things That Determine Happiness photo: meddygarnet Happiness is, by nature, a subjective quality with a definition like a moving target. There is scant evidence — qualitative or quantitative — to lend convincing support to those life variables most critical in determining individual happiness, which is likely why past researchers committed to the scientific method rarely tried to tackle the subject. This is changing. Take, for example, the World Database of Happiness in Rotterdam, self-described as a, “continuous register of scientific research on subjective appreciation of life.” While we’re not entirely convinced of this marriage between science and subjectivity, we can still offer up a top 10 of things that determine human happiness, as supported by this growing body of research. No.10 – Having a short memory Are you one to hold grudges? No.9 – Exacting fairness No.8 – Having lots of friendships No.7 – Being spiritual No.6 – Thinking ahead No.5 – Developing a skill According to psychology professor Dr. No.2 – Good genes
Welcome to Adobe GoLive 6 From Los Angeles Times: It's not all about you Chances are, others aren't judging you as harshly as you think, if at all. By Benedict Carey Times Staff Writer January 13, 2003 Oh, things sure took a bad turn. Take a deep breath. A growing body of research shows that far fewer people notice our gaffes than we believe as we pace the floor in private, going over and over the faux pas. Learning to recognize this self-deception can soothe the anxiety that surrounds social interactions. The spotlight effect blinds us in several ways. A pioneer in this field, Tom Gilovich, a psychologist at Cornell, has demonstrated the same exaggerated misperceptions in several situations, such as group discussions about social issues. The findings apply to most of us, of course, but not to everybody -- some people really do live under a microscope, as a chosen way of life. Most of the time a mistake is just a mistake, not a death sentence. Yet we don't expect that same empathy for ourselves.
Metamophing Computer Interfaces Metamophing Computer Interfaces Siafu is a PC designed to give people with vision loss or impairment a more intuitive computer experience. It lays flat like a tablet and allows the user to fully interact with it by way of touch. The surface utilizes a conceptual material called magneclay or magnetized liquid. This material has the ability to morph upward into any shape via a controlled electromagnetic field enabling the device to create a braille surface for reading and even pictures in 3D relief. The technology behind Siafu – Magneclay, is an oil based synthetic agent that possesses limitless morphing capabilities. As for why the device is named after an aggressive African ant? Designer: Jonathan Lucas Siafu’s magneclay surface can generate full spread braill layouts, allowing users to enjoy reading digital content in a large book style relief. The surface of Siafu can form a working 9-button braille keyboard.
