RockMelt Rethinks the Web Browser



















here are some unique concepts here, namely the fact that RockMelt lives in the cloud. 

This allows your “browser experience” to be, in a way, profiled. Your settings, bookmarks, 

etc., are all backed up online. Using Facebook for authentication, your user environment 

can be replicated anywhere RockMelt is installed. And really, that’s what RockMelt is all 

about: The user environment. Users of Google Chrome will feel at home, because RockMelt 

is built on Chromium, the open source project behind Google’s browser. 

The major differences are columns running down each side of the browser.

The left side depicts your favorite Facebook contacts. When a contact is listed on the left bar,

 you’ll be able to quickly initiate Facebook chats with them or post content to their 

Facebook walls. You can also easily send them e-mails through the seamless contact pop out.

 

All in all, RockMelt is an interesting twist on the browsing experience. The social elements 

of the browser make for a compelling and streamlined online interaction process. And because 

it’s powered by Chromium, it not only supports Chrome extensions, it’s guaranteed to support 

the latest and greatest aspects of the web, like HTML5 and CSS3.

RockMelt is now in limited beta and you can apply for an invitation. 

The company has released this video demonstration of its new browser.

Marvel Brothel gets canned

The folks at RPGMaker.net were not too pleased when games creator Calunio created a pornographic

take on Professor Xavier & his X-men.  Marvel Brothel answers the question: what would Professor X
do if Gambit convinced him to turn his School For Gifted Mutants into a whorehouse.  The game-play
is a top-down final fantasy sort but the dialogue truly shines.  Build up your sexual arsenal with Forge

 FOOD BEATING!!!
http://www.activityvillage.co.uk/squash_pilgrim.jpg

the strange incident occurred around 11:30 a.m. Oct. 30 when suspect Sean Cullen, 25, entered the

Hillsborough Market and passed a note to a shopkeeper reading: "Give me your money, or you're going to die."

At that moment, good Samaritan Greg Geden walked into the store and pulled the perp to the ground.

While the store owner called police, the suspect allegedly attempted to make a run for it.

But that's when a quick-thinking food deliveryman entered the shop, grabbed a large squash and smashed it

over the suspect's head -- shattering the fruit and leaving behind a mess of seeds on the floor.

Police arrived and placed Cullen under arrest, charging him with felony unarmed robbery.

German judge lets speeding drivers off the hook



 

 

 

 

(Reuters) -

A German judge has shot to popularity

after letting 42 speeding drivers off without charges

in the last week because he thinks speed controls

merely serve to fill the state's coffers rather than prevent accidents.

 

Bernd Kahre, spokesman for Herford court in northwestern Germany

where judge Helmut Knoener works,

told Reuters the 62-year-old wanted to make a stand against

the current practice of prosecuting speeders.

 

He said Knoener believed speed controls were not conducted to ensure greater road safety,

but rather to provide the cash-strapped state with an additional source of income.

 

Knoener sees no legal justification for using photos in speeding-related court cases

and is calling for clearer regulations about how, when and where speed controls can be conducted.

But the speeders who think they've got off Scot free may be in for a shock yet

-- the Public Prosecution Service can still appeal the sentences, Kahre said.








Laptop full of Afghan secrets sold on eBay



Published: Nov. 11, 2010 at 8:39 PM

 

LONDON, Nov. 11 (UPI) --

An engineer who bought a damaged laptop on eBay for $30

says the hard drive contained unencrypted British military information from Afghanistan.

 

Once he discovered the files, the buyer turned the machine over to the Ministry of Defense, The Sun reported.

 

"It's scary. I couldn't believe it -- the laptop could have been bought by anyone,

" the buyer, who said the machine was listed as for "spares or repair," told the newspaper.

"I realized straight away it wasn't the kind of stuff that should have been for sale on eBay.

 

I contacted the seller to ask if he wanted a copy of the data -- but he said no."

The Toshiba belonged to Capt. Robert Sugden, a graduate of the British military academy Sandhurst

who served as an equerry or personal assistant to Queen Elizabeth II

for a year after his tour as a platoon commander in Afghanistan.

 

He told investigators he thought the hard drive had been destroyed.

The buyer said the outside of the laptop looked as if someone had taken a screwdriver to it,

but he found the hard drive intact. The data included a list of Afghan police command posts,

helpfully given the title NATO Secret,

photos and personal information about Afghan army and police recruits and the Afghan Police Tactical Handbook.
