+ - Adobe Hedges its Bets on Flash->

Submitted by

itwbennett writes "Adobe seems to have finally wised up to the fact that Flash on mobile is dead in the water, and is offering developer tools for other kinds of mobile development. Blogger Matthew Mombrea is singing the praises of one 'invaluable' free tool that lets you remotely control a mobile device and manipulate the web browser and DOM as you would on a desktop, making diagnosing a style or layout issue on a particular device oh so much easier."

During the heat of the space race in the 1960's, NASA decided it needed a ball point pen to write in the zero gravity confines of its space capsules.
After considerable research and development, the Astronaut Pen was developed at a cost of $1 million. The pen worked and also enjoyed some modest success as a novelty item back here on earth.

The Soviet Union, faced with the same problem, used a pencil.

The key to getting a prefix established...is to just start using it.  The rest of the world and ultimately standardizing bodies will adopt it eventually.

New WoW Patch Brings Cross-Server Instances 342

Posted by Soulskill
from the new-and-shiny dept.
ajs writes "World of Warcraft's Wrath of the Lich King expansion was staggered into 4 phases. The fourth and final phase, patch 3.3, was released on Tuesday. This patch is significant in that it will be the first introduction of one of the most anticipated new features in the game since PvP arenas: the cross-realm random dungeon, as well as the release of new end-game dungeons for 5, 10 and 25-player groups. The patch notes have been posted, and so has a trailer. The ultimate fight against the expansion's antagonist, the Lich King a.k.a. Arthas, will be gated as each of the four wings of the final dungeon are opened in turn — a process that may take several months. The next major patch after 3.3 (presumably 4.0) will be the release of Cataclysm, the next expansion."

+ - Polymer Vision unveils rollable E ink device

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "A company called Polymer Vision, which spun out from Philips in 2006, has come up with a rollable E ink display that's called the Readius. It's similar to the Sony Reader, except that it can be rolled up into a small pocket-friendly form factor. The Readius can display 16 shades of grey and it has 4GB of on-board memory, so you can store all your books, emails and PDFs on it. It also features USB, as well as GPRS/EDGE and DVB-H connectivity, meaning you can download data wirelessly, too."
