+ - AnandTech bought by Purch, same owner as Tom's Hardware

Submitted by DrunkenTerror
DrunkenTerror (561616) writes "Following founder Anand Lal Shimpi's departure a few months back, seminal tech site AnandTech has been bought by Purch, the same company that owns their 1990s era competitor, Tom's Hardware. Long-time readers shouldn't worry, however, since "AnandTech and Tom’s Hardware remain editorially independent, and though no longer competitors, the goal is to learn from one another. ""

EVE Online Developers Help Player Make Fan Movie 56

Enfors writes "CCP, developers of the sci-fi MMOG EVE Online, continue to impress with their open attitude towards players. In a thread on the EVE forums, an EVE Online player named Dire Lauthris describes difficulties he was having while making a fan movie that would illustrate a portion of EVE Online's background story. To make it 'historically correct,' he contacted CCP, the developers, to check on some facts. Instead of threatening to sue him for infringing on their intellectual property, they ended up inviting him to their offices to set him up with better movie-making software than the one he was using. Also, they had an employee record the narrator voice for his movie. The movie is now finished and available online. Massively is running a related article about storytelling in EVE."

Late-Eight writes "Scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology are working on a new type of nanogenerator that could draw necessary energy from flowing blood in the human body. The hope is to incorporate the new nanogenerator into biosensors, environmental monitoring devices and even personal electronics that will require no fuel source, internal or external. Once completed, this new cellular engine could find various applications, even beyond medicine."
