+ - Medical Researcher "Discovers" Integration->

Submitted by scapermoya
scapermoya (769847) writes "A medical researcher, Dr. Tai, published a paper entitled, "A mathematical model for the determination of total area under glucose tolerance and other metabolic curves." In the paper, he describes what is known to most everyone who has taken even the most introductory calculus class as Riemann summation, and passes it off as his own "Tai Method." Better yet, his paper has been cited at least 75 times. Is there no shame?"

+ - Xbox 360 Price Cut Imminent?

Submitted by scapermoya
scapermoya (769847) writes "Hot on the heels of the confirmed price cut for the PS3, the rumor mills are churning out a potential Microsoft response, supposedly to be announced Tuesday night at E3. The price cut is to affect all three Xbox 360 models.
From the article, "The $299 Core pack will drop to $249; the $399 Premium pack will drop to $349; and the recently released $479 Elite model will drop to $399.
Such a price cut would be a likely move for Microsoft following the PS3 pricing announcement today. Sony dropped the price of the 60GB PS3 from $599 to $499 and announced an 80GB PS3 with MotorStorm bundled for $599. The price drop appears to be in response to lower-than-expected sales of the console."

As is expected, Microsoft is keeping quiet about the potential price cut, saying nothing has been announced. Could this be related to the die-shrink that will bring the main chip to 65 nm?"
