My Life With Lance Armstrong I was Lance’s personal assistant for two years, during the height of his racing career. Do I think he cheated? Yep. But my real problem is something that diehard fans seem unable to grasp: the vengeful tactics he uses against people who tell the truth about him, on and off the bike. Last week, just before the news broke that Lance Armstrong had decided to walk away from his battle with the U.S. Interactive Light Installations : 'Light Form' Interactive Landscape by Mathieu Rivier Playing with light and surfaces seems futuristic but the 'Light Form' Interactive Landscape by Mathieu Rivier is making that notion entirely possible. The installation was created by Rivier, a student of ECAL University of Art and Design. The sculpture is ragged solid surface that reacts to touch using infra red sensing technology. The surface provides a visually geometric multi-touch aesthetic that is ultra modern.
The Power (and Peril) of Praising Your Kids What do we make of a boy like Thomas? Thomas (his middle name) is a fifth-grader at the highly competitive P.S. 334, the Anderson School on West 84th. Slim as they get, Thomas recently had his long sandy-blond hair cut short to look like the new James Bond (he took a photo of Daniel Craig to the barber). Unlike Bond, he prefers a uniform of cargo pants and a T-shirt emblazoned with a photo of one of his heroes: Frank Zappa. Samsung gathering arms: "Apple [...] we're ready to sue!" Written by: Keyan Riddick on September 1, 2012. It was only a matter of time , losing money, and having to change their products until Samsung actually came back at Apple with some firepower. Samsung has finally had enough, as if a billion was chump change . According to the Korean Times, Sammy has raised its pimp hand and decreed: “ that it will immediately sue Apple if the latter releases products using advanced long-term evolution (LTE) mobile technology.” You hear that Apple?
I would rather cry in a BMW "I would rather cry in a BMW" is a quotation that became an online sensation in the People's Republic of China in 2010. It originated from Ma Nuo, a 20-year-old female contestant on the television show Fei Cheng Wu Rao (also known in English as If you are the One). The line was in response to a question by an unemployed suitor who asked if Ma would "ride a bicycle with him" on a date.
Chromebox Keyboards Quietly Go On Sale Albeit very, quietly. Designed by Samsung for use with their Chromebox desktop computer, the keyboard offers many ChromeOS-specific keys – such as a dedicated ‘search’ key – as well as removing those that the OS doesn’t use – such as ‘Super/Windows key’. The keyboard is not an “official” Google product, but their arrival does disprove earlier speculation that Chromebox peripherals were ‘vapourware’. One catch at present: you need to live in the US to buy one. And there are, at the time of writing, Chromebox Keyboard
6 New Google Chrome TV Ads Debut Good news for us then: Google UK have uploaded 6 new Chrome adverts to their YouTube channel… “Julie Deane” I had the pleasure of seeing this advert on TV last night here in the UK (which is how I came to see if there were other adverts, fact fans). It tells the story of Julie Deane, a mother of one who ends up starting a world-wide fashion trend for Satchels from her kitchen. “Tab Remix” Did you know with Chrome you can open tabs – lots of them – and not have your browser slow down?
How we got Glasgow playing in the streets again People still love to play on the street – but sometimes it takes careful design to get them started, as we found out while creating Scotch Hoppers for the Glasgow 2014 Games. Outside my window as I write this, two girls are running and yelling: “you’re trying to catch me”, “nooo, you touched the corner”. A little further down the pavement, they’ve drawn a lopsided hopscotch grid whose squares bend lopsidedly around a tree. And why wouldn’t they? People like to play in public space: on streets, footpaths, in patches of sunlight, dodging around lampposts. Bruce Willis Isn’t Suing Apple Over iTunes Music Ownership Rights Earlier today, there was a rumor that Bruce Willis was considering to sue Apple to clarify who owns content downloaded from iTunes. The U.K.’s Daily Mail reported – and as with all things involving British tabloids, you should take this with a grain of salt – that Willis “is said to be considering legal action against technology giant Apple over his desire to leave his digital music collection to his daughters.” While contemplating his death, Willis apparently noticed something most iTunes users also conveniently ignore: even though Apple now provides you with DRM-free files, all you own is a license to play your music on up to five devices under your control and you can’t legally pass them on to others.
Mother sets fire to her daughter's gloating rapist A judge ordered her to be held in prison and undergo psychiatric tests, provoking anger from friends and neighbours, who have set up a petition calling for her release. Soriano suffered 60 per cent burns in the attack on June 13 and was airlifted to a specialist unit. He survived for 11 days before succumbing to his injuries. It is understood that the woman, who cannot be named because of laws safeguarding the identity of rape victims, claims to have no recollection of the attack which took place in the Bar Mary, just 300 yards from the family home. As decorators painted over the blackened walls of his bar last week, Antonio Ferrendez Lopez told how Soriano had walked in at lunchtime.
