Just a V12 Cobra

Big engine, little car. It's an age-old recipe that has been putting big grins on the faces of car guys the world over ever since modifying began. Back in the '60s Carroll Shelby did just this with the AC Cobra - shoehorning big Ford V8 motors into the light UK-built chassis to create one of the most legendary cars of all times. Magnus Jinstrand has always wanted to create his very own Cobra and when it all started to materialize for him he decided to take things a little further than originally planned...

Deploying System Center 2012 Service Manager

This guide helps you deploy System Center 2012 - Service Manager in one of several different scenarios. The scenarios range from a simple, one-computer scenario to a four-computer scenario that is designed to support production-type environments. In addition, this guide shows you how to register a Service Manager management group with the Service Manager data warehouse so that you can generate reports. You have the option of deploying the Self-Service Portal so you can provide access to Service Manager through a web browser. To improve performance and provide for redundancy, you can deploy additional secondary Service Manager management servers.

Harvard creates brain-to-brain interface

Researchers at Harvard University have created the first noninvasive brain-to-brain interface (BBI) between a human... and a rat. Simply by thinking the appropriate thought, the BBI allows the human to control the rat's tail. This is one of the most important steps towards BBIs that allow for telepathic links between two or more humans -- which is a good thing in the case of friends and family, but terrifying if you stop to think about the nefarious possibilities of a fascist dictatorship with mind control tech.

The events of The Labyrinth

So why is David Bowie kidnapping a child from an underage Jennifer Connelley?In a time long long ago a sorcerer named Jareth fell in love with a girl named Sarah. Sarah's father and step-mother would not let her marry Jareth because they wanted her to keep her, as a servant, to care for their other child. In a fit of rage Jareth kidnapped this other child and spirited it away to the fairy world. In this new world Jareth built a palace for his Sarah. He turned the spoiled child into a goblin, and kept it to be a servant.

Massive Battle In Eve Online

Today, ladies and gentlemen, we saw the largest engagement in the history of video games. I say that because a battle involving over 4000 pilots is now over, with the embers of our enemies' wrecks still smoldering (even though they technically can't) in the cold, dark space of 6VDT-H in Fountain. This battle is the culmination of what will likely be called the Fountain War, a war that has raged for two months and represents one of the most dynamic conflicts of EVE Online in the last two years.

How Ingenuity Destroyed Salad Bars

In China, Pizza Huts are either take-out only or somewhat upscale sit-down restaurants that even serve steak. A while back, it became a fad of sorts to build enormous fruit and vegetable structures at Pizza Hut salad bars. The reason was that customers only got one plate and one trip to the salad bar, so they wanted their visit to be worth it. And was it ever.

Ubuntu Edge

This beautifully crafted smartphone is a proving ground for the most advanced mobile technologies on the horizon, a showpiece for true mobile innovation. And at the heart of it all is convergence: connect to any monitor and this Ubuntu phone transforms into an Ubuntu PC, with a fully integrated desktop OS and shared access to all files. We're fascinated by converged computing, the idea that the smartphone in your pocket can also be the brain of the PC on your desk. We've shaped Ubuntu so you can transition seamlessly between the two environments. Now all that's needed is a phone that's designed from the ground up to be a PC as well. The Ubuntu Edge is our very own superphone, a catalyst to drive the next generation of personal computing.
