Chrome to Overtake Firefox in Browser Popularity by End of Year Print
Sunday, 02 October 2011 00:18

ComputerWorld reports that, according to web analytics service StatCounter, Google's popular Chrome browser will overtake Firefox in popularity by the end of this year - putting Chrome at the second to the still-touch-to-topple Internet Explorer. I thought it would be interesting to see if the numbers from this site exhibited the same trend. As you can see Chrome has gained three percent while Firefox has lost almost seven percent.

Even as mega-banks topple, Juan Enriquez says the big reboot is yet to come. But don't look for it on your ballot - or in the stock exchange. It'll come from science labs, and it promises keener bodies and minds.

 
Google Adds Search by Voice to Mobile App Print
Wednesday, 08 April 2009 06:16

Google recently added search by voice to their Google Mobile App for the BlackBerry. I did a couple test searches and was surprise at its accuracy. You can check out Google mobile applications at google.com/mobile or m.google.com from your mobile phone.

On a side note mobile data plans are a rip off. I pay T-Mobile $70 a month to have unlimited internet and texting on two phones. My FiOS bill is a little less than that.

Dude, Where's My Toolbag? Print
Wednesday, 26 November 2008 07:24

 

Veteran spacewalker and Endeavor astronaut Heide Stefanyshyn-Piper lost her grip on the backpack-sized bag on Nov. 18 while cleaning up a mess from a leaking grease gun.

Once the tool bag floated away, some thought they'd seen the end of it. Not quite. A satellite tracker at Spaceweather.com now is monitoring both the space station and the tool bag.

After sunset on Nov. 22, Edward Light, using 10 x 50 binoculars, spotted the bag in space while he scanned the sky from his backyard in Lakewood, N.J., Spaceweather.com reported. On the same night, Keven Fetter of Brockville, Ontario, video-recorded the bag as it passed by the star Eta Pisces in the constellation Pisces.

The satellite tracker predicts the tool bag will make a series of passes over Europe this week. Then, late next week, the tool bag is expected to reappear in the evening skies of North America, and should be visible through binoculars a few minutes ahead of the ISS.

MyFoxDC reports from Germantown, MD. A little girl thought she was getting an iPod for Christmas but ended up getting a rude surprise. She got the box but when she opened it up, she found a surprising switch: the iPod had been replaced with a bizarre note.

Jay Ellis, the girls father, returned the ipod to the Germantown, Md. Wal-Mart store where he purchased it. The store manger told him that another customer returned an iPod with a similar issue.

DNA Dating Site Predicts Chemical Romance Print
Saturday, 22 December 2007 15:29

The first dating service to use lab-based genetic profiling launched online last week. Scientific Match promises to pair up people who will be physically attracted to each other because their DNA is different.

Well-matched couples will like each othersÂ’ natural scents, have more fun in bed, and bear healthier children than those who are genetically similar, the company claims.

The service, available only in the Boston area, charges $1,995 for a year-long subscription.

"I strongly believe this will dominate the future of dating services," said founder Eric Holzle, a mechanical engineer.

Members swab their cheeks and send in saliva samples. A lab spends two weeks analyzing the immune system genes, and then the company matches individuals with genetic profiles that are unalike.

"We look at six specific genetic reference points on DNA, and none of those six can match to make a match," Holzle explained.

He was inspired by a well-known sweaty T-shirt study of a dozen years ago, in which biologists found that women liked the smell of dirty shirts worn by men who were immunologically dissimilar to themselves.
