Stats Show iPhone Owners Get More Sex 397

An anonymous reader writes "According to OK Cupid's survey of 552,000 user pictures iPhone users have more sexual partners than BlackBerry or Android owners. By age 30, the average male iPhone user has had about 10 partners while female iPhone users have had 12. By contrast, BlackBerry users hover around 8 partners and Android users have a mere 6. As the blog's author's wryly observe: 'Finally, statistical proof that iPhone users aren't just getting f*@ked by Apple.'"

Submission + - Apple can't stand toilet humour (

beaver1024 writes: I doubt if Apple lawyers even contemplated the irony as they slapped a small Australian company producing camping equipment with a lawsuit for trademark violations. Sea to Summit makes a product that assists in the disposal of human excrement calling it iPood. Apparently Apple thinks that "For obvious reasons, Apple's reputation for clean design and high-tech electronics will suffer should it be associated with latrines and the like through Sea to Summit's use of iPood.". If only Sea to Summit had the resources to fight this in court. Alas, we are witnessing yet another sign of the corrupted nature of IP laws in Australia and internationally.

Submission + - First steps in transporter technology?

beaver1024 writes: Previous advancement in transporter technology made use of quantum entanglements to induce a copy of the state of the source particles so that information could be teleported from one location to another. Now by cooling atoms to near absolute zero, Australian scientists have been able to transport actual atoms from one location to another, albeit via optic fibers.

Whilst this requires a physical link to transport matter how long will it before a creation of a stable wormhole, although small, be sufficient enough for true teleportation to occur? The manipulation of atoms in this manner leads one to wonder whether Star Trek like matter replication technology will emerge from this advancement?

The Ending Of The Big Bang? 24

Pedrito writes "CNN is running a story here about a new theory that competes with the Big Bang. I figured it would already be up here. The theory goes that the universe "existed" before as a vacuous space, devoid of matter or energy. Two universes collided and the collision brought matter and energy to the void. The theory explains some things that the Big Bang doesn't. It's also partially based in String theory, of which I'm a big believer."
