Dr. Alan Hirsch, Director of Chicago's Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Center, says the key to a man's heart, and other parts, is pumpkin pie. Out of the 40 odors tested in Hirsch's study, a mixture of lavender and pumpkin pie got the biggest rise out of men ages 18 to 64. That particular fragrance was found to increase penile blood flow by an average of 40%. "Maybe the odors acted to reduce anxiety. By reducing anxiety, it acted to remove inhibitions," said Hirsch.

Yes, I've seen developers for windows mobile applications publishing QR codes with releases of their applications. Supposedly you can use your PC to view the release announcement and take a picture of the code displayed on your PC monitor with your smartphone using a program to read the QR code and it will take you to the download for the program without having to mess with internet browsing on a 2.5" screen. I haven't tried it yet but I've receently installed a QR reader and intend to keep a lookout for them.

You know you're reading Slashdot when 11 pounds is called "shoulder-aching bulk."

Granted, it's one of the heavier notebooks on the market but if you would really see the benefit of dual screens when working in the field it doesn't sound all that bad -- just get a backpack case.
