No but in all seriousness that's actually quite unfortunate, it seems.

The Fastest Real-World Internet Is 1000x Quicker than Google Fiber:

"Fiber internet is great no matter who's laying it down. Gigabit connection speeds?
Hell yes. But if you thought that was fast, researchers in the UK have something
better that will not only blow your hair back, but blow it right off: a 1.4 terabit
connection, and all with commercial-grade hardware."

"We've seen some other impressive advances in connectivity recently too, like
200 Gb wireless connections through a combination of hardware and a software
advancements. But 1.4 Tbps through pure protocol is especially exciting because
it doesn't require any infrastructure changes. This could theoretically run on the
fiber (much of which is lying useless) in the ground right now."

Lemme show this to my friends who switched to fibre and called me names when I say it is a waste of money.

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.

Feds Interrogate Man Wearing Google Glass in Movie Theater:

"As if you needed another reason not to wear your dumb Google Glass in public — or ever,
actually — an Ohio man claims he was yanked out of a movie theater and interrogated by
federal agents, who believed he was illegally filming the movie with his face computer."

Was it a slow day for the 'feds' that they had to get involved in something that is usually handled by staff?

Prof Stephen Hawking: 'There are NO black holes' – they're GREY!:

"Brit uber-boffin Prof Stephen Hawking has quietly published a new paper proposing
a radical rethink of the nature of black holes, which have been a major part of his
life's work.

Hawking's paper [PDF], Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for Black
Holes has been submitted for peer review and attempts to apply both basic
gravitational theory and quantum theory into a unified system."

Modern physics, making the incomprehensible, less comprehensible.

Water Found on Dwarf Planet Ceres, May Erupt from Ice Volcanoes
http://www.space.com/24366-dwarf-pla...volcanoes.html
While we've no proof that these smaller bodies such as Titan, Europa, and now Ceres actually harbor life, the presence of water on all of them certainly seem to redefine the criteria for life a bit. An "Earth-like" planet is your greatest clue, but there are probably other options out there.

Ceres being so much smaller even than our own moon and locked within an asteroid belt makes the idea of alien life there all the more "alien."

New species of river dolphin identified in Brazilian Amazon
http://www.theguardian.com/world/201...azilian-amazon
I find river dolphins particularly fascinating - species found in disparate locations such as South America or India tend to have some commonalities such as snout length. Could be an example of convergent evolution (as the reduced eye size is), but there's no obvious benefit to the snout in rivers vs oceans. I suspect it's because these unrelated species have been separate and thus isolated from their ocean living cousins for long enough that they preserve some archaic features that all dolphins may have had millions of years ago. Somewhat similar to lemurs and Madagascar, for instance.

Confirmed: Google will sell Motorola Mobility to Lenovo for $2.91 billion @ Ars Technica

Quote:
Google has officially confirmed the rumors with a blog post and press release. The documents say the sale price is "approximately US $2.91 billion (subject to certain adjustments)."

...

Google will retain Motorola's patents, which helps that $7 billion dollar difference sting a little less. The deal is still pending approval in the US and China, so until that happens, Google says it's "business as usual."
So... About 7 Billion US Dollars for patents. I'm betting that this is related to today's news of a Google/Samsung agreement that will supposedly see Samsung toning down their growing skinning of Android and will see the Korean company stop pushing home-grown alternatives to Google's services.

rel: Google and Samsung may finally agree on what Android should look like @ The Verge

Japanese quantum boffins 'may have the key to Teleportation':

"Don't get too excited, the world's not about to get Star Trek-style transporters.
However, if a quantum communications theory formulated by three Tohoku
University boffins can stand the test of experiment, they could break the distance
limitations that currently constrain quantum communications."

This is What Happens When You Teach Machines the Power of Natural Selection:

"Psychopathic machines? Lethal AI? These are the concepts we should be thinking
about when we talk about the benefits of self-improving software."

"Omohundro is too optimistic to throw around terms like catastrophic or annihilation,
but his analysis of AI’s risks yields the spookiest conclusions I’d heard of yet. He does
not believe, as many theorists do, that there are a nearly infinite number of possible
advanced AIs, some of them safe. Instead, he concludes that without very careful
programming, all reasonably smart AIs will be lethal."

Wasn't that why there were "the three laws of robotics"?

Humans came long after aliens, scientist suggests:

"Harvard astrophysicist Abraham Loeb gets the feeling that we are one of the last
to the universe party.

As Space.com reports, Loeb's research suggests that a mere 15 million years after
the Big Bang, alien microbes might have happily survived.

He said: "When the universe was 15 million years old, the cosmic microwave
background had a temperature of a warm summer day on Earth. If rocky planets
existed at that epoch, then the CMB could have kept their surface warm even if they
did not reside in the habitable zone around their parent star.""
