Is Verizon Lying about the Droid's Capabilities?

Yesterday, Verizon made it clear that while the original Droid would be getting Android 2.2, it would
not
be getting one of Android 2.2′s most coveted features: WiFi HotSpot. In other words, you wouldn’t
be able to flip a switch and turn your Droid into a little 3G-powered router for all of your friends to
leach off on the commute home.
The reason for this feature’s absence, said Verizon, was that “the Droid.. doesn’t have [the]
hardware to support a Mobile Hotspot”.
I call bullshit!

Changes to X-men the 1st class after Vaugh see's Inception.
Director Matthew Vaughn is hard at work on "X-Men: First Class" in London but he took some time out Sunday to catch a screening of "Inception."
He enjoyed the Christopher Nolan epic immensely -- even though it prompted him to scrap a dozen pages of the "First Class" script.
"I saw 'Inception,' which I loved," Vaughn said Monday. "But my heart sank when I saw that a few of the ideas we had were up [on the screen].
So it's either leave it in and look as if you're copying or change things. We completely ripped out about 12 pages of the script and the storyboards."

Nasa scientists braced for 'solar tsunami' to hit earth


Astronomers from all over the world, Monday, witnessed the huge flare above a giant sunspot the size of the Earth,
which they linked to an even larger eruption across the surface of Sun.

Experts said the wave of supercharged gas will likely reach the Earth on Tuesday, when it will buffet the

natural magnetic shield protecting Earth.

It is likely to spark spectacular displays of the aurora or northern and southern lights.

Scientists have warned that a really big solar eruption could destroy satellites and wreck
power and communications grids around the globe if it happened today. Dr Lucie Green,
of the Mullard Space Science Laboratory Said, "It looks like the first eruption was so large that
it changed the magnetic fields throughout half the Sun's visible atmosphere and provided the
right conditions for the second eruption.

She Also Said, "Both eruptions could be Earth-directed but may be travelling at different speeds.

“This means we have a very good chance of seeing major and prolonged effects, such as the

northern lights at low latitudes."   *Time to Freak Out!

Brewer claims world's strongest beer

 

 

 

 

  brewdog_taxidermy211_534

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) –

A Dutch brewer with a penchant for competition

has laid claim to creating the world's strongest brew:

a beer that is some 60 percent alcohol by volume.

 

"You don't drink it like beer, but like a cocktail

-- in a nice whisky or cognac glass," brewer Jan Nijboer told Dutch news agency ANP.

Nijboer's Almere-based brewery, 't Koelschip (The Refrigerated Ship),

sells the new beer, which is 120 proof and dubbed

 

"Start the Future," in a one-third liter bottle for 35 euros ($45) each.

Nijboer told ANP he developed the new brew to keep up with Scottish outfits

that were also pushing the boundaries of beer's alcohol content.

 

His previous record-holder,

a beer called Oblix that was 90 proof (45 percent alcohol by volume),

was eclipsed by a Scottish beer that reached 55 percent.

 

That beer, dubbed "The End of History,"

was announced last week by a small brewery called BrewDog.

Only 12 bottles were made,

each housed inside a stuffed dead animal and sold starting at 500 pounds ($780) each.

"It has become a little competition," Nijboer said. "You should see it as a joke."

PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) –

A New Jersey man was jailed for up to three months on Friday

for making himself vomit on a fellow spectator at a baseball game,

given two years probation, and ordered to serve 50 hours of community service,

and pay $315 in restitution after the incident.

 

"Clemmens pleaded guilty to making himself throw up on a young girl at a Phillies game,"

the district attorney's office said in a statement.





Gravestone prank hits after 3 decades





HYDE PARK, Utah, Aug. 3 (UPI) --

A Utah woman working to remodel her home said

a gravestone she discovered hidden in a basement wall

was placed as a practical joke in the 1970s.

 

Miriam Gunn of Hyde Park said she discovered the white gravestone,

which bears the name Earl Stephen Balls and marks the year as 1900,

behind wall of a shower in the basement bathroom of the house,

which dates back to the 1960s,

The (Logan, Utah) Herald Journal, reported Tuesday.

 

Gunn's husband, Rob, contacted the previous owner of the house,

who revealed his then-15-year-old son had placed the broken gravestone in the wall

as a practical joke while remodeling in the 1970s.

 

"I got the idea when we were framing it

that someone would open up the wall a hundred years from then and find it

Turned out it wasn't a hundred years later," said the prankster, who asked not to be named.

The man said he found the gravestone in his back yard,

and does not know how it came to be there.

Earl Balls is buried at the nearby Hyde Park Cemetery and his grave bears a newer stone.
