Comment: Toshiba Qosmio (Score 0) 300

If you're looking at the Toshiba Qosmio, stop. It is a great, nice laptop.. but it is bulky and heavy. It does have a dedicated numeric keypad but as you noticed -- it's very plastic-y feeling and definitely wouldn't hold up to any amount of daily usage..

So yeah, heads up -- avoid the Qosmio line!

+ - Monkeys and humans learn the same way->

Lucas123 writes "A new study from UCLA showed that monkeys, like humans, learn faster by being actively involved in the learning process rather than just having information placed before them, according to a story in ScienceDaily. In the study, two rhesus macaque monkeys learned to put up to 18 photos on an ATM-like touch screen in a row. 'The monkeys did much better on the first three days when they had the help than when they didn't, but on the test day, it completely reversed.'"

Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?
