+ - Thermal Imaging to Measure Sexual Arousal

Submitted by Loins Aflame
Loins Aflame (717924) writes "Healthy young men and women take the same amount of time — about 11-12 minutes — to become sexually aroused, researchers at Canada's McGill University report.

The researchers did pretty much exactly what the average slashdot reader would do upon getting a new thermal imaging camera: they pointed it at some crotches. The study participants were "imaged" first while they watched Canadian travelogues and reruns of Mr. Bean, and then while they watched porn. Result: both sexes got hot in the pants in the same amount of time.

Next up on Ask Slashdot: How can I rig up a thermal imaging system to let me know how well my date is going?"

+ - HP Chairwoman Under Criminal Investigation

Submitted by iroll
iroll (717924) writes "HP's leadership continues its winning-streak; from the article:

"Hewlett-Packard Co. Chairwoman Patricia Dunn said Friday that several of her fellow board members want her to remain on the job despite a criminal investigation into her efforts to plug a media leak.

...As part of their surveillance, the company's investigators posed as HP directors and at least nine reporters to obtain personal phone records. As part of the masquerade, the investigators used the Social Security numbers of the people involved to dupe the phone companies into turning over the records.""
