Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

NASA's humanoid robot activated on the International Space Station.

Well...it can use Twitter and look about a little. Movement tests are for next week. Legs are for a few years from now.

For now, Robonaut exists from the waist up. It measures 3 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs 330 pounds. Each arm is 2 feet, 8 inches long.

A pair of legs currently are being designed and should be launched in 2013.
Is that a Zeong prototype? When are they attaching the mega-particle cannons?

Room-temperature brown dwarf spied just 9 light-years off

"Scientists perusing data collected by NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer
(WISE) have spotted some really cool stars – brown dwarfs with an atmospheric
temperature as low as an agreeable 25°C.

Dubbed "Y dwarfs", these objects have hitherto eluded astronomers hunting
them at visible wavelengths, although WISE has finally nailed six examples within
a distance of around 40 light-years from our own Sun."

"The NASA boffins are also excited about the Y dwarfs because of their relative
proximity to Earth. One of them, WISE 1541-2250, is roughly nine light-years from
our beloved homeworld, and "may become the seventh closest star system,
bumping Ross 154 back to eighth". NASA adds: "By comparison, the star closest
to our solar system, Proxima Centauri, is about four light-years away.""

Hmmmm. If they found one closer they could find that Nemisis star they've been looking for. It would be worse in such a start had cooled even farther so it was just a mass of some sort that wasn't putting out enough energy to be easily detected...but still had a gravitational effect. "Giant Jupiter" perhaps.

If we do find one closer, maybe we can send a probe to check it out.

How far out can we send space probes with existing technology?

I know we already have a probe en route to Pluto.

Well, the Voyager probes are the current farthest out. Voyager 1 is past 117 AUs out and the Pluto probe will never catch it as Voyager 1 will remain faster unless it runs into something.

Apple has just hired yet another member of the iPhone jailbreaking community, Nicholas Allegra, also known as “@comex” on Twitter. Allegra is best known for the JailBreakMe website which made the process of jailbreaking the iPhone as simple as visiting a webpage using mobile Safari.
The 19-year old hacker from Chappaqua, New York, posted the news of his hire on Twitter, stating that he will be starting an internship with Apple week after next.

Maybe it isn't a good time to dump Apple shares after all.

Funny how "hire 'em" has been a valid strategy to combat these guys ever since Frank Abagnale Jr.

Hiring them has always been a good move....at least we are getting less retards with computer science degrees and zero tech affinity answering the help emails.

They are probably hired for more strategic posts than customer service...

We are the Borg. Resistance is futile.

Actually that reminded me of something else that wasn't Star Trek:
(which someone else noticed because they put this up since that news came out)

Weird, Birdlike Mystery Drone Crashes in Pakistan

"It looks a bit like silver bird. It probably was used to spy on insurgents. And now
it’s in the hands of the Pakistanis.

WIRED editor-in-chief Chris Anderson flags pictures of an unusual, unfamiliar
drone that reportedly crashed crashed over southwestern Pakistan late last
week. It’s a surveillance drone, with a camera attached — recovered from the
crash but not apparently visible in this photo — rather than the larger, deathly
flying robots that shoot missiles. This one looks tiny, with a wingspan not much
longer than a man’s outstretched arms, and clearly light enough for a grown man
to carry.

The Pakistani Frontier Corps in Baluchistan province recovered the drone. And
they confidently declare it to be an “American surveillance unmanned aerial
vehicle.” But as Anderson points out, it doesn’t look like anything the U.S. flies —
or at least acknowledges flying. What’s the deal?"

That is Babylon 5 not Star Trek.
