On a quest to prove that security measures surrounding nuclear facilities are ill-considered, nine Greenpeace activists broke into a French nuclear power plant and hung a banner that said "HEY" and "EASY" on it. Even after Greenpeace told police about the stunt, it took them several hours to track them down.
So far it's only been field tested in bars in northern Argentina, but I know plenty of remorseful partyers who would love this beer cooling Photoblocker, which promises to stop photos of your evening's antics from showing up on Facebook.
The Allen Telescope Array and the search for alien life is back on, thanks in no small part to the US Air Force. While funding included personal donations from fans, the bulk of the cash for the search for ET has come from USAF Space Command. Point those radio arrays at Kepler-22b boys -- time to find out whether there really are aliens.
FBI Agent Playset -- For Teaching Kids That the Most Important Part of Law Enforcement Involves Beatings and Restraints
It's funny, when I was a kid there was a huge move away from realistic toy guns — and playing "guns" in general. Now apparently the pendulum has swung back: you can buy your kid a 15-plus-inch toy baton and handcuffs for playing "FBI."
It's 1pm. You're still in bed, having already muttered some lame excuse to your boss as to why you aren't in to work today, chugged a litre of water, half a bottle of aspirin, AND TWO GALLONS OF COFFEE, but no dice. When all else fails, this new US FDA-approved cure might help.
Dragging a body any distance is tough enough on land, much less while swimming. And the faster you land that person, the more likely you are to resuscitate him. Unfortunately, most conventional life-saving equipment is either slow moving, like kick-boards, or slow launching, like wave-runners. Hence, the Asap Water Rescue Craft.
Hot contender for Game Of The Year has to be Skyrim -- it’s the game that the phrase ‘time vampire’ was surely made for. Players find that entire days have been lost to it and that their P45s are waiting for them at work, if they ever manage to get back into the real world that is.
I was sitting at my desk when my phone rang. It was my wife, "We've been robbed." Someone had broken into our garage and taken our bikes. We're not avid bikers. We didn't have bikes that cost more than my first car. Still, the combined loss was about $800.
Seeing Chef Maxime Bilet talk about how the Modernist Cuisine created the most ultimate hamburger in this entire world, makes me cry happy meat tears. Everything was scientifically considered, from the fluffy bun and lab made cheese, to the sous-viding and cryofrying process. I'll go vegetarian for you, baby.
Anybody who's worked in a cubicle is familiar the Outlook Request Read Receipt — that horrid popup that demands you confirm you have indeed read (and summarily deleted) the TPS report Ted from accounting had sent out. Now, Tout, a new email tracking app, does the same. Huzzah?
There are more things to check in a camera besides the aesthetics. Buying a used product comes with many risks: malfunctions, scratches or hidden flaws that the seller might not say about the camera. Many of these can be prevented, especially if you’re buying online. Here are a few guidelines to follow and see if you’re buying a working camera or not:
The 'sunrise' period is now over. You can officially buy dot-XXX domains from your favourite domain registrar, as of today. Whatever your imagination can conjure up, and no I don't want to know thanks, can be registered as long as no-one's shot first.
I'm surprised that, after three decades of amazing launches, hundreds of outstanding missions, great science and some very sad moments, there's not more stuff celebrating the space shuttle. Thankfully, NASA is coming to the rescue with this free iPad app.
Budget airline EasyJet is about to launch a mobile app, designed to give customers a full booking service through their phones.
The possibility of alien life has captivated our imaginations for generations. Now that possibility just got a big boost as Kepler's managed to find and confirm a potentially Earth-like planet. It's just 600 light years away and occupies that magic 'habitable zone' around its star, like the Earth does around the sun.
