:ahaha:Previous works of Rem Koolhaas, a famous Dutch architect and "Professor in Practice of Architecture and Urban Design" at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University, USA, always managed to impress people but his latest work is probably the most daring and inspiring. It's called the Transformer and was designed in collaboration with Prada. The Transformer represents a pavilion that was designed with the goal of accommodating various cultural programs and functions such as art, architecture, film, and fashion. Because the famous architect doesn't always consider applying traditional methods of design and construction , his new creation literally transforms according to a specific function. The name says it all - the Transformer changes its shape for different events. Designers will construct the Transformer using a steel framed tetrahedron, which will be covered in a plastic membrane. Four different shapes make the tetrahedron: a hexagon, cross, rectangle and circle. Whether a fashion show is going to take place or a movie will be shown, the construction will be lifted then rotated on its axis and then put back down. A rectangle floor was developed for cinema; for a fashion show the Transformer will have the floor in shape of a cross and so on. Visitors will have the ability to see and appreciate the building starting with the end of March and till July 2009 in Seoul. ( www.infoniac.com )

:ayokona:Computers will freeze and drop offline with increasing regularity as the web's outdated infrastructure struggles to cope with the surging popularity of bandwidth-hungry video sites, it is claimed. Analysts are warning that the internet will cease to function as an effective tool of communication – becoming merely an "unreliable toy" for casual users – unless networks are upgraded. The Government has made universal broadband the cornerstone of its digital policy, promising that every household will have a connection by 2012. But there are concerns that a failure to commit to new high-speed networks could undermine the long-term future of the economy. Online traffic is already growing at 60 per cent a year, but Ted Ritter of Nemertes Research, a think tank, predicts demand could double in 2009, driven by increased use of video-on-demand websites. More than 180 million television programmes were watched over the internet in the first year of the BBC's iPlayer catch-up service, with rivals 4oD and ITV.com also attracting large audiences. The video-sharing website YouTube, which has helped propel Britain's Got Talent winner Susan Boyle to international fame, reportedly uses as much bandwidth as the entire internet took up in 2000.

"Today people know how home computers slow down when the kids get back from school and start playing games, but by 2012 that traffic jam could last all day long," Mr Ritter said. "For business purposes, such as delivering medical records between hospitals in real time, it's useless." Telecoms companies in Britain are already investing in new fibre-optic cables to replace the existing network of copper lines – BT has pledged to connect 10 million homes to its super-fast service by 2012, and Virgin Media is also rolling out fibre optic broadband. But it is feared that millions of homes particularly in rural areas will be left with a crawling, second-rate service as internet use explodes. Some internet service providers are planning to profit from the predicted congestion by charging websites to fast-track their content, in a move seen as compromising "net neutrality" – the principle that all web content should be transmitted with equal priority. Mr Ritter, who is compiling a report on the future on the web to be published later this year, has warned online surfers to expect "brownouts" – debilitating combinations of screen freezes and slow connections - in the near future. "At best, we see the [economic] slowdown delaying the fractures for maybe a year," he said. ( www.telegraph.co.uk )

:ayokona:Chinese hackers allegedly have been trying to break into the computer systems of the New York Police Department for some reason. NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly said computer hackers based in China have been making some 70,000 attempts daily. It is not clear why China would be so interested in New York's finest, but Kelly thinks it is because of his coppers' record of 'international arrests' and the fact the deparment tends to deal with terrorists since September 11. IP addresses of computers attempting to breach the NYPD's computer systems have been tracked to China, the Netherlands and the Ukraine. It appears that the hackers have devised botnets that make 5,000 attempts a day at finding unsecured portals into the NYPD's files. Chinese government officials have denied involvement in computer spying, however. China claims that people outside China are bent on fabricating lies and that the notion of Chinese hackers raiding western computer networks is all a myth. ( www.theinquirer.net )

:astig:The latest invention from researchers working at Philips Electronics is a jacket that includes vibration motors and can enable movie viewers to actually feel the movie through a sense of touch. The jacket was developed with the goal of studying the effects of touch on the emotional reaction of the viewer to what the movie characters are feeling. A senior scientist from Philips Electronics, Paul Lemmens, notes that the jacket was not created to make viewers experience the actual punches and other effects that movie characters receive. The idea is to make viewers experience the anxiety along with other emotions via specific signals. One of such signals is sending a shiver up the spine of the person viewing a film. Among other signals there are: the creation of tension in the viewer's limb and a pulse on the chest that engages a rapid heartbeat. According to Lemmens, people often cannot imagine how sensitive humans are to touch, despite the fact that touch is the first sense that fetuses develop inside mother's womb. It is worth mentioning that the scientist will present the company's latest invention at the 2009 World Haptics Conference, which will be help in Salt Lake City. The event will be sponsored by the IEEE. In order to make viewers experience emotional sensations, the jacket features 64 independently controlled actuators. These are allocated across the arms and torso. There are 16 groups of four actuators that are connected along a serial bus. Each of the sixteen groups has a microprocessor. Due to the fact that the actuators draw little current, the haptics jacket can work for up to an hours on two AA batteries, informs the website of the IEEE Spectrum magazine.

If a viewer watches a fight scene, the jacket can generate a pulsing on the chest in order to reproduce the heartbeat of the kungfu master. The speed of on and off cycling of the actuators is 100 per second. To note that it is not for the first time that Philips develops a gadget that can enhance sensation. Last year the company's latest invention was a technology that made it possible for content providers of games, movies, music and websites to create immersive experiences that one can feel in the real world by engaging specially developed amBX devices, such as lighting-effects devices and wind machines that jointly can reproduce the feeling of a gentle breeze or a bomb blast.

:sobrakana:Insecurity outfit F-Secure has warned people to stop using Adobe's Acrobat Reader and switch to using an alternative PDF reader until the company sorts out its security. Mikko Hypponen, chief research officer of F-Secure, told a briefing of journos that nearly half of hacker attacks this year exploited holes in Acrobat Reader, while six vulnerabilities have been discovered that target the program. He said that users would be better off with an open sauce flavour of PDF reader. ( www.theinquirer.net )

:okay:A company called Practical Solar managed to create the world's first heliostat system that is controlled by a computer. With its help the sunlight provides enough energy for heating, lighting and other purposes. The computer-controlled system takes advantage of the solar light even when it doesn't reach your house directly. One can install the heliostat system using only hand tools. The entire hard work is performed by the high-tech tracking technology software. The program regulates the focus and the angle while the sun moves. Cutting down costs and saving energy use are the two main advantages of a heliostat, which can be used to direct natural sunlight in through a window. You can also use a number of heliostats in order to reflect natural lighting into a room. When there's bright sunlight outside, one heliostat generates visible light that is equal to forty 100-watt incandescent light bulbs. In addition, the sunlight can cover an entire room in contrast to a limited range of a bulb. With the help of two heliostats one can generate about 600 watts of solar thermal energy. If a thermal receiver is added to accumulate heat then there will be enough energy to light up the house during the night. With the help of individual heliostats you can have several targets, meaning that a heliostat can be used for a variety of tasks in different times, during different seasons. You can change the targets on demand or automatically with the help of timer function. It is worth mentioning that one heliostat uses less that 1/3,000 of the energy it generates. One driver box can control 200 heliostats. More information about the company and heliostats can be found here. ( www.infoniac.com )

:astig:During the global economic crisis a cheap car is the product that will most likely attract a lot for customers. Recently the Indian carmaker, Tata Motors, presented its new car, dubbed Nano, which claims to be the cheapest vehicle in the world. According to the first journalist who performed a test drive of the car, Hormazd Sorabjee, Nano feels more expensive than it actually is. There were certain concerns over the Indian company's self-imposed price target of 100,000 rupees, which is about $1,980. Skeptics expected that the car would look more like a golf cart rather than a real vehicle. But after the first test drive, carried out in Pune (the home of the Indian carmaker), it turned out that the world's cheapest car is a vehicle than you will never feel ashamed to drive. The doors of Nano open very wide, which makes it quite easy to get in and out. In addition, the car's high seats allow the driver to slide onto them with easy. For such a price you will surely not receive the luxury of a Mercedes, but you may still highly appreciate the vehicle's front-power windows and air-conditioning. One more important feature of Nano is that it can take heavy loads, since an Indian car with five seats is usually made to be able to carry twice the weight of five passengers. Nano weights only 600kg, but it was designed to look rather robust. Its suspension can cope with virtually any kind of surface. The vehicle may even embarrass some off-road cars. Surely a car of such size as Nano has its issues, like getting a bit choppy when you drive it on uneven surfaces. There car's nose may also bob up and down. Nano has a two cylinder 623cc engine, which is rather noisy, but still not at noisy as someone would really expect from such a car. It is good for crowded city streets. Nano's top speed is 105km/h, but the vehicle runs out of puff rather quickly when you drive it on an open road. It seems that the vehicle was not developed for highways, but there's no doubt that a lot of people will still want to buy it. Engineers at Tata worked hard to make the car stable with a full load when you drive it at maximum speed. A good job is done by the brakes. It takes some time to understand that you drive an extremely cheap vehicle, since Nano neither looks nor behaves like one. The car is also very fuel-efficient - having a 15-liter tank it spends one litter to drive up to 18-20 kilometers. Nano is certainly a breakthrough. Its developers really thought about the buyer's expectations. ( www.infoniac.com )

:bringiton:By reaching an agreement with the number one search engine Google, Sony Corp. managed to gain access to over 500,000 electronic book titles that will be included in the company's digital book readers. The partnership between the two giants has the goal of challenging the domination of the popular digital book reader Kindle from Amazon.com. The agreement will expand the Japanese company's eBook store by over 600,000 titles which can definitely compete with 245,000 books currently available at Kindle store. Amazon's Kindle was launched in 2007 and in about a year the gadget's popularity reached impressive heights, pushing Sony Chief Executive Howard Stringer to look for partnership with Google. It is worth mentioning that Sony launched its first digital reader before Amazon.com. The device was dubbed Librie and it was presented in April 2004. After a while the company decided to discontinue the device's production after being unsuccessful in attracting the demand for the gadget. In February the largest Internet retailer presented its new version of Kindle. The new Kindle 2 is able to hold over 1,500 book titles and run on a single battery charge for a week. Its price is $359. In 2008 on her talk-show Oprah Winfrey called Kindle her "favorite new gadget", which certainly boosted the sales of the gadget. It is expected that the revenue from Amazon's gadget will reach $256 million and by 2012 it will hit $1.6 billion. The prognosis was made by Sandeep Aggarwal, an analyst from San Francisco-based Collins Stewart. The second largest developer of consumer electronics, Sony, stated that it recently started selling its digital book reader, dubbed PRS-700, for $350 apiece. The company's new device will complement Sony's $300 PRS-505 digital book reader. A company's statement says that one can read 7,500 pages continuously on a single battery charge.

Spotify is opening up its application programming interface (API) – the technological framework that provides the foundation for the service – to third-party developers, enabling them to build new software and programs that will bring Spotify’s music-streaming service to other platforms and gadgets. It means that television manufacturers, games console makers and even mobile phone designers could sell devices that allow Spotify users to enjoy their personalised music playlists anywhere around the house, or even when out and about. Currently, Spotify is only available through computers, although some users have set up music-streaming networks to wirelessly “pipe” songs to their home stereo. Sonos, Logitech, Sony and Microsoft are believed to be among the manufacturers working on software and devices that will take advantage of Spotify’s API. “This is the first step towards becoming more of a platform,” said Daniel Ek, Spotify’s co-founder. “There are lots of services that have APIs, but this is different because it lets anyone build a Spotify client.” Spotify has around one million users, and more than 40,000 people are signing up to join the service every day. Last month, Spotify confirmed that around 40 user accounts had been compromised by hackers, potentially exposing personal details to cyber criminals. ( www.telegraph.co.uk )

:bringiton:The Round Rock-based multinational computer company, Dell, presented its new laptop, which claims to be the thinnest laptop in the world. The new gadget from Dell is entitled Adamo and it weights just 1.8 kg and is 1.64cm thick, which makes the laptop thinner than the popular MacBook Air from Apple. However, the Adamo is heavier than its rival from Apple. According to a spokesman from Dell, Adamo is the first representative of the company's range of luxury laptops. The laptop is expected to go on sale at the end of Mach, featuring a basic 1.2GHz Intel Core2D processor with DDR3 system memory. Its retailing price is $2,000. Dell's marketing director, David Clifton, outlined that the Adamo was not a product intended to compete with a particular brand. The company wanted to make a stylish laptop with an attractive design and which would be high in craftsmanship. The main goal of lunching a luxury laptop, according to Mr. Clifton, is to broaden people's perception of the company. Dell's marketing director says he doesn't see any downside in introducing a luxury product during one of the worst economic recessions. Tim Danton, who is the editor of PC Pro magazine, said that the Adamo is the product that was intended to have an influence on Dell's brand rather than on company's sales. With "the world's thinnest laptop" Dell will be able to come up with a strong marketing campaign, he said.Dell's representatives said that the company put just as much effort into developing the design of the Adamo laptop as it has improving the hardware inside. It is worth mentioning that Adamo's 13.4-inch display is powered by Intel's X4500 graphics chip. According to Dell, the Adamo is able to run for up to 5 hours on full battery charge.

:sobrakana:

Six Days In Fallujah, published by Japanese games giant Konami, is described as a 'survival horror' title for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles. Developed in collaboration with a handful of Iraq veteran US Marines - who have lent their videos, photos and diaries to the designers - the controversial action game is due for release next year. A highly-decorated British Army colonel and the father of a lance corporal killed in action in Iraq have criticised the game and called for it to be banned. Tim Collins OBE, a former colonel of the 1st Battalion Royal Irish Regiment whose inspirational eve-of-battle speech made history in 2003, was appalled by the game's setting. He said: "It's much too soon to start making video games about a war that's still going on, and an extremely flippant response to one of the most important events in modern history.

"It's particularly insensitive given what happened in Fallujah, and I will certainly oppose the release of this game." Reg Keys, whose son Thomas was a Red Cap killed by an Iraqi mob in June 2003, added: "Considering the enormous loss of life in the Iraq War, glorifying it in a video game demonstrates very poor judgement and bad taste. "It is particularly crass when you consider what actually happened in Fallujah. "These horrific events should be confined to the annuls of history, not trivialised and rendered for thrill-seekers to play out, over and over again, for ever more. "It's entirely possible that Muslim families will buy the game, and for them it may prove particularly harrowing. "Even worse, it could end up in the hands of a fanatical young Muslim and incite him to consider some form of retaliation or retribution. He could use it to get worked up and want to really 'finish the game'. "I will be calling for this game to be banned, if not worldwide then certainly in the UK." Six Days In Fallujah takes inspiration from the Second Battle of Fallujah - also known as Operation Phantom Fury, which took place between November 7 and December 23 2004.

An estimated 1,500 insurgents were killed - reportedly in white phosphorus attacks - along with 38 US troops during the battle. Six Days In Fallujah is being developed by US-based Atomic Games. The firm's president Peter Tamte said: "For us, the challenge was how to present the horrors of war in a game that is entertaining, but also gives people insight into a historical situation in a way that only a video game can provide. "Our goal is to give people that insight, of what it's like to be a Marine during that event, what it's like to be a civilian in the city, and what it's like to be an insurgent." John Choon, senior brand manager for Six Days In Fallujah at Konami Digital Entertainment, added: "The soldiers wanted to tell their stories through a game because that's what they grew up playing." In 2003, electronics giant Sony was forced to abandon plans to launch an Iraq War video game called Shock and Awe after attracting a barrage of negative publicity. It later admitted the idea had been 'an exercise of regrettable bad judgement'. ( www.telegraph.co.uk )

The mimic wrote on the social networking site that he was working on eight new scripts for a new series of his political satire The Thick of It. Just eight episodes have been made of the show since it debuted in 2005 but it has recently spawned a film, In the Loop, which features Malcolm Tucker, the spin doctor character played by Peter Capaldi, comedian Chris Addison and Sopranos star James Gandolfini. News of the new series excited his "followers" but according to The Independent, Iannucci has yet to set up a profile on the site. He is not the first celebrity to fall victim to a "twimpersonation". Last month Coleen Rooney, the wife of Manchester United and England strike Wayne denied confirming she was pregnant on her Twitter account. The columnist and TV presenter was reported to have posted an online message claiming she was "excited" to be expecting her first child. But a representative for her said: "That's definitely not Coleen, it's a fake, she hasn't announced anything." Other celebrities such as US president Barack Obama, rapper 50 Cent and singer Britney Spears reportedly use "ghost tweeters" to write real-time updates for their followers on the site.
