Pages Jaunes prépare UrbanDrive sur Les élucubrations de Chacsam Jamais avare de développements en ligne et très souvent à la pointe dans le milieu des annuaires en ligne, les Pages Jaunes françaises annoncent la préparation d’un concept qui risque de ne pas passer inaperçu: UrbanDrive. L’idée est très poussée: vous prenez un système de visite virtuelle de ville du style de ce que Pages Jaunes a déjà depuis plusieurs années grâce -entre autres- à sa filiale Mappy, et vous y ajouter une couche de réalité augmentée reprenant non seulement le contenu des Pages Jaunes, des services publics (genre bornes Villo/Velib ou l'équivalent local du vélo de ville en accès libre ), mais aussi du contenu social public tel que les tweets géolocalisés concernant l’endroit, on peut supposer les shouts Foursquare ou autres (ce n’est pas dit explicitement), et d’autres informations comme l’illustre cette vidéo. UrbanDrive sera développé avec la société californienne d’imagerie EarthMine. Via 01net

Dyatlov Pass incident The Dyatlov Pass incident (Russian: Гибель тургруппы Дятлова) is the mysterious deaths of nine ski hikers in the northern Ural Mountains on February 2, 1959. The experienced trekking group, who were all from the Ural Polytechnical Institute, had established a camp on the slopes of Kholat Syakhl when disaster struck. During the night something made them tear their way out of their tents from the inside and flee the campsite inadequately dressed in heavy snowfall and sub-zero temperatures. Soviet investigators determined that six victims died from hypothermia but others showed signs of physical trauma. One victim had a fractured skull while another had brain damage but without any sign of distress to their skull. As the chronology of events remains uncertain due to the lack of survivors, several explanations have been put forward as to the cause; they include an animal attack, hypothermia, an avalanche, infrasound-induced panic, military involvement, or a combination of explanations.

How to Hide Files in JPEG Pictures If you’re looking to hide files on your PC hard drive, you may have read about ways to encrypt folders or change the attributes on a file so that they cannot be accessed by prying eyes. However, a lot of times hiding files or folders in that way requires that you install some sort of software on your computer, which could then be spotted by someone else. I’ve actually written quite a few articles on how you can hide files and folders in Windows XP and Vista before, but here I’m going to show you a new way to hide files that is very counter-intuitive and therefore pretty safe! You can actually hide any type of file inside of an image file, including txt, exe, mp3, avi, or whatever else. Hide File in Picture In order to accomplish this task, you will need to have either WinZip or WinRAR installed on your computer. Create a folder on your hard drive, i.e. Now you should have a folder that looks something like this with files, a JPG image, and a compressed archive: Now here’s the fun part!

Wonderland by Kirsty Mitchell: heart-breakingly beautiful photographic series in memory of an extraordinary life Kirsty Mitchell's Wonderland series has been three years in the makingAll costumes, wigs and sets were constructed on a shoestring budgetSome images took up to five months to createShe would often wait an entire year to find the perfect natural setting for her shots By Stephanie Hirschmiller Published: 14:11 GMT, 17 May 2012 | Updated: 09:34 GMT, 18 May 2012 Kirsty Mitchell's late mother Maureen was an English teacher who spent her life inspiring generations of children with imaginative stories and plays. Following Maureen's death from a brain tumour in 2008, Kirsty channelled her grief into her passion for photography. She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world. 'Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,' said the artist. The resulting images looked so hyper-real that it was assumed that they were created in Photoshop.
