Why leaving Facebook has made me happier According to new research this week, by the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, giving up Facebook for even just seven days boosts happiness and reduces anger and feelings of loneliness. I can’t remember the last time my nine-year-old pleaded with me to get off my phone, or accused me of loving my mobile more than I do her The report suggests that Facebook distorts our perception of reality – we buy in to the oh-so-fabulous commentary on other people’s lives to such an extent that we can’t help but evaluate our own less than perfect lives as being inadequate.

The Evolution of Cell Phone Design Between 1983-2009 Cell phones have evolved immensely since 1983, both in design and function. From the Motorola DynaTAC, that power symbol that Michael Douglas wielded so forcefully in the movie “Wall Street”, to the iPhone 3G, which can take a picture, play a video, or run one of the thousands applications available from the Apple Store. There are thousands of models of cell phones that have hit the streets between 1983 and now. We’ve picked a few of the more popular and unusual ones to take you through the history of this device that most of us consider a part of our everyday lives. We have tried, wherever possible, to include the most popular phones and the phones that were “firsts” for a particular feature, but may have missed out on your favorite phones due to the sheer number of models that are out there. We invite you to post your faves in the comments section if they are not listed here.

Other South Australian fossil material includes a juvenile hypsilophodontid vertebra from Andemooka, and an ankle bone of a large ornithopod, perhaps something like Muttaburrasaurus, from Coober Pedy.
