It's on. Google intros Chrome OS Looks like that Android phone of yours just went up in stock. On Tuesday Google announced on Tuesday Google Chrome OS. Google's new operating system is to run on both x86 and ARM chips with an emphasis on speed, simplicity and security. Chrome OS is open source and runs within a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel. It is to be initially set for netbooks and available to consumers in the second half of 2010. Probably won't come with IE pre-installed. the official google blog

UPDATE

Acer, Adobe, ASUS, Freescale, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Qualcomm, and Texas Instruments --
according to the latest Chrome OS update from Google, you're looking at the company's initial
ragtag team of co-conspirators for its entry into the operating system business. With Adobe's i
nvolvement, we can assume Flash support is a given.

Citroën GT on the streets of London The Citroën GT (in case you haven't been following it) is quite possibly the most expensive production car in existence. It was a joint design between Citroën and Polyphony Digital (the makers of Grand Turismo) to promote the upcoming Grand Turismo 5 and "specifically designed to bring the virtual and real worlds together." Check out the video on YouTube of the GT taking a gawker filled drive through London. Citroën will produce a limited six vehicles at the US equivalent of $1.8 million a piece. youtube

Drunk badger disrupts traffic in Germany

http://www.outdoorphoto.co.za/forum/photopost/data/517/BBE9855.jpg

Wed Jul 8, 1:52 pm ET

BERLIN (Reuters) – A badger in Germany got so drunk on over-ripe cherries it staggered into

the middle of a road and refused to budge, police said Wednesday. A motorist called police near

the central town of Goslar to report a dead badger on a road -- only for officers to turn up and

discover the animal alive and well, but drunk.

Police discovered the nocturnal beast had eaten cherries from a nearby tree which had turned

to alcohol and given the badger diarrhoea. Having failed to scare the animal away, officers

eventually chased it from the road with a broom.

 

Going vertical: Brothers live on building's wall

Brazilian artists Gabriel Primo, left, and Tiago Primo sit in their installation

RIO DE JANEIRO – Two brothers in Rio are living over the edge — literally:

sleeping, working and eating on the side of a building 33 feet (10 meters) up in the air.

Twenty-seven-year-old Tiago Primo and his 20-year-old brother Gabriel spend 12 hours a day in the bed,

hammock, chair and dining table they've attached to a bright red-and-yellow wall as part of an art exhibit

in Rio's old center.

The brothers are equipped with mountain climbing gear, and if nature calls,

can scramble over to the verandah of a neighboring art gallery, where an indoor bathroom awaits.

The brothers have been hanging out wall-side since the end of May. They plan to continue the display until Aug. 20.

 

 

Want to make 80K a year? Try casting a spell

LONDON (Reuters) – Fancy 80,000 dollars a year on a stress-free job with flexible working hours

and no need to wear a suit?

Well, grab your black pointy hat, take out that rusty black hessian drape from the back of the wardrobe

and refresh your memory on how to turn your grumpy neighbor into a mouse.

Somerset tourist attraction Wookey Hole caves is advertising for a "witch" and has already received 100

applicants since the beginning of the week.

Legend has it that the caves, near Wells,

were home to the Wookey Witch who was turned to stone by the medieval Abbott

of Glastonbury to rid villagers of her curse.

The vacancy has arisen because the previous incumbent has retired.

The successful candidate, who will be living in a "spacious" cave, has to cackle,

not be allergic to cats and will be asked to perform "a range of tasks" including magic at an open audition scheduled for July 28.

But the appointee need not be scary.

"We want a friendly witch with a devilish element," said Gayle Pennington, marketing assistant at the caves said on Wednesday.

"We're a family attractions place so we don't want to frighten the children."

In keeping with modern times, the role is open to men, women and trans-gender witches to comply with sexual discrimination laws.
