I don’t have a customised license plate for my car, but if I had one of these, it would be so obvious to everyone as to what I do for a living!
Here’s the full gallery…
If you’ve got one yourself and would like to show it off to our readers here, send it in to us!
Thanks to abit of inspiration from Gizmodo…
Cute and cuddley but actually this is not just any mobile or portable device strap with a monkey attached, it’s actually a USB card reader hidden in disguise. Handy to have and is I think an excellent geeky gift idea.
Don’t you just hate it when you’re surfing the internet ‘peacefully’ when all of a sudden you click into a webpage and finds out you’ve just opened a .pdf file? Everything, even Firefox finds it difficult to retain the smooth pace that you want, everything just jams up and if you’ve got a slow PC you could wait forever. PDF Download currently in version 2.0 is a free add on for Firefox and Flock that will stop this from happening. This simple little extension gives you complete control over PDF files in a Toolbar button.
Rather than stick you all alone with a browser-jarring PDF file, the PDF Download extension provides you the option to: download the file locally, open it with Firefox using the PDF download options settings, view the PDF as an HTML file in the browser, bypass PDF Download, or cancel the link. The first two options are self-explanatory, while the “view as HTML” feature works a bit like Google’s own version of the feature, speeding load times while largely abandoning formatting. The dialog box also displays the size of the target PDF file, which can help in deciding which option to choose.
Not sure whether this is just another one of those latest photoshop gimmicks running through the internet but according to TechEBlog, they have been tipped with the news that an all new MacBook Pro is emerging. All that is known at the moment is that it’s 5.1 pounds in weight, will feature a back-lit keyboard, multi-touch technology and in addition to that also 802.11n WiFi. Could this be possible? I’m not entirely convinced, the pics don’t look like Apple quality to me but we’ll need to see what other blogs think about this, we’ll keep you posted.
This latest squarish looking racer from the UK based company JetStream Sportscars Ltd may not have the most appealing charms (looks like its been built from Lego as some would say) however when the engine is switched on, you’ll see a completely different side of the car.
At just 1540 pounds, the Jetstream SC250 sports a 250hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged General Motors four-banger channeled through a six-speed gearbox. The 250hp and 236 lb ft pushes the car from 0-60 in under four seconds! Through the quarter-mile traps in just 11.8 seconds and on to a top speed of about 165 MPH.
The researchers, from the University of California, Davis, have developed a system that allows follower robots to use behavioral cues from human leaders and other robots in order to track and follow them. What this means is that robots may soon be able to respond to human emotions appropriately and thus act more naturally even though it’s still not yet possible to implement robots emotions.
These robots would now take in behavioral cues and act accordingly, thanks to mirrors and certain other tracking methods. It seems to have paid off, as the main idea was to reduce the number of instructions a robot might need. Also, compatibility with human behavior would make the robots more acceptable to humans. The ability to follow will likely be essential as robots continue to work alongside people more often than not, such as in office buildings, hospitals and airports.
