garymortimer writes "“We have taken the shape and design of a maple seed and harnessed it with intelligent flight controls and tavionics,” said Bill Borgia, director of the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory at Lockheed Martin ATL. “The design is incredibly simple, making Samarai quite affordable even in small quantities.”

Samarai’s vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) system has only two moving parts and inherent 360 degree sensing without using a gimbal. The vehicle is less than 40 centimeters long and weighs only about 200 grams. The rotation of the entire UAV allows omni-directional sensing using simple optical, laser, or acoustic sensors without complex mechanical actuators."

Journal: How do you properly manage your various passwords? 1

Journal by Drew McKinney
I've been scratching the ol' noodle lately on a good way to securely store my massive list of website/email/banking/etc usernames and passwords.

I'm often faced with the problem of trying to pay my phone bill, but I forgot the URL of the website and can't remember my username, password, or both. I then have to take the time to either retrieve the password or call customer service.

Pelly writes "For those who are interested in seeing the inner-workings of Dell's latest XPS M1710 flagship notebook, Hot Hardware has taken the time to rip the system apart and photograph the hardware for your viewing pleasure. In addition, there's some amusing overclocking attempts which utilize the sub-zero temperatures of New Hampshire's winter weather to provide an interesting spin on the review."
