+ - Inside the iPhone: 3G, ARM, OS X, 3rd Partyware

Submitted by DECS
DECS (891519) writes "After heading off the top ten myths of the iPhone, Daniel Eran of RoughlyDrafted has written a series of articles looking "Inside the iPhone," exploring why Apple didn't target faster 3G networks in EDGE, EVDO, HSUPA, 3G, and WiFi, a substantiated look at how the iPhone is indeed running OS X (contrary to reports that it isn't), what it means to users and developers, and how ARM is involved, in Mac OS X, ARM, and iPod OS X, and why the supposedly "closed system" Apple describes for the iPhone won't preclude third party development in Third Party Software."

+ - Woman dies after "Hold your wee for a Wii cont

Submitted by

NewsCloud writes "A 28 year old woman was found dead of water intoxication hours after taking part in an Entercom-owned radio station's "Hold Your Wee for a Wii" contest:
Can you hold "it" in for a long time? We're having you drink water every 15 minutes! And the last person to go to the bathroom wins the Wii!
According to Wikipedia: "Water intoxication can be prevented if a person's intake of water and electrolytes closely matches his or her losses. The body's regulatory mechanisms provide a very generous margin of safety if the two are imbalanced, but some extreme activities (such as heavy, prolonged physical exertion), as well as disease states, can overwhelm or impair these mechanisms.""

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
