Chinese exports amounted to $1.2 trillion in 2009, while German exports totaled $1.1 trillion, the German Federal Statistical Office said."

Arvisp writes "According to a blog post by former Google China president Kai-Fu Lee, Apple plans to produce nearly 10 million tablets in the still-unannounced product's first year. If Lee's blog post is to be believed, Apple plans to sell nearly twice as many tablets as it did iPhones in the product's first year."

The birthplace of modern pizza (among other things). Lombardi'stalks a big game but is definitely worthy of its reputation.
Pretty hard to go wrong with pizza in NYC in general -- even most of the "Famous" "Original" "Ray's" serve up a pretty decent slice. None of that deep dish bullshit for me, thankyouverymuch.

Reports of IE Hijacking NXDOMAINs, Routing To Bing 230

Jaeden Stormes writes "We just started getting word of a new browser hijack from our sales force. 'Some site called Bing?' they said. Sure enough, since the patches last night, their IE6 and IE7 installations are now routing all NXDOMAINs to Bing. Try it out — put in something like www.DoNotHijackMe.com." We've had mixed results here confirming this: one report that up-to-date IE8 behaves as described. Others tried installing all offered updates to systems running IE6 and IE7 and got no hijacking.
Update: 08/11 23:24 GMT by KD : Readers are reporting that it's not Bing that comes up for a nonexistent domain, it's the user's default search engine (noting that at least one Microsoft update in the past changed the default to Bing). There may be nothing new here.

They must put the funds in escrow until they have settled their final appeals. The float on $1.5 billion is significant, so they are out something regardless of their final verdict. "The company must write a bank guarantee for the fine right away, though that guarantee is held in a bank account until appeals are exhausted, a process that could take years." ref

+ - iPod as lighting rod?->

Submitted by Bob Wehadababyitsabo
Bob Wehadababyitsabo (629809) writes "The Wall Street Journal Health Blog writes about a fascinating medical case involving a jogger, his iPod, and a thunderstorm. "[...] witnesses said the poor guy was thrown eight feet by the electrical discharge. Both his eardrums were ruptured, and his jaw was broken. The first letter [to the New England Journal of Medicine], by doctors who treated the man at the hospital, argued that 'the combination of sweat and metal earphones directed the current to, and through, the patient's head.'" However, a letter in NEJM's Thursday issue disputes the original findings, instead suggesting the iPod earbuds served as a lighting rod, directing electricity away from the patients ears and head and toward his torso. The verdict from the second letter? "A final note on jogging in thunderstorms: much of the very interesting debate that has followed the publication of this case report would perhaps be unnecessary if common sense were as ubiquitous as the iPod.""
