+ - Staring at breasts determined to be healthy->

Submitted by scott666
scott666 (1008567) writes "A rather bizarre study carried out by German researchers suggests that staring at women's breasts is good for men's health and increases their life expectancy. According to Dr. Karen Weatherby, a gerontologist and author of the study, gawking at women'(TM)s breasts is a healthy practice, almost at par with an intense exercise regime, that prolongs the lifespan of a man by five years. She added, "Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well-endowed female, is roughly equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics work-out."

At the close of the study, the researchers noted that the men who stared at the breasts of females on a regular basis exhibited lower blood pressure, slower resting pulse rates and lesser episodes of coronary artery disease. In addition, she also recommended that men over 40 should gaze at larger breasts daily for 10 minutes."

If Nokia had entered what is gearing up to be a very aggressive market with a linux based netbook, I would have expect the BOD to fire the CEO right away!

Asus tried it already and it failed.

Asus created the netbook market with the eeePc, and you consider it a failure?

He's not saying the EEEPC was a failure, just the ones that came pre installed with linux. The ones that shipped with XP out sold the linux ones 3 to 1 so most retailers stopped carrying the linux models. It would be crazy for Nokia to make the success of their new device rely on an operating system that people are still afraid to buy when they can have the comfort of windows they're already familiar with.

The problem with the PSP is the huge lack of software available at any given time. If you walk in to best buy there's a section for NDS games as big as the PS2 or Wii sections but the PSP games are all in one little 4 foot area. I own a DS and love it (along with my R4). I'd like a PSP for the media features, but there's so little software worth owning for it I can't justify the cost.
