The human brain is a complex and interconnected system, the largest and the most functionally important part of the central nervous system. Its functions include processing of sensory information coming from the senses, planning, decision making, coordination, motion control, positive and negative emotions, attention and memory. The highest function performed by the brain is thinking.
You can easily find out which of the hemispheres of your brain is active at the moment. Look at this picture.
If the person in the picture is rotating clockwise, your left hemisphere is more active at the moment [...]
Nokia N9 is one of the most beautiful devices Nokia has ever made. The shape, its body – every aspect of the phone speaks out how much Nokia has put into the phone. The new (not so new now) Nokia N9 is an elegant device that runs on Meego, a Linux-based Operating System, which Nokia has now killed down.
I have been playing with the device for a while now, and in a few words, I ‘d like to sum it up that if you want a phone to impress people, then this is the one to get you should get.
Top 15 Nokia N9 Applications
Moving on, I have covered here the top 5 Nokia [...]
The iPhone 5 hasn’t been announced yet, but that has not stopped accessory makers from posting upcoming cases for the highly anticipated handset. Case-Mate has published a page on its website with six different case designs for the new iPhone 5, and we’re loving the radical new body shown in the images. We’ve heard tons of speculation that the iPhone 5 will be thinner and lighter than the current model and these cases suggest it will have tapered edges and a slim profile as well. Finally, the images appear to an aluminum back on the fifth-generation iPhone, which also jibes with earlier [...]
We had some hands-on action with Acer’s new Aspire S3 Series Ultrabook this morning, in a packed and sweaty Berlin hall at IFA 2011.
The Taiwanese giant has really impressed us with its great value laptops this year, so we were keen to check out this ultra-slim lapt top, which is just 17mm at itshickest point, and 13mm at its thinnest. This makes it slightly slimmer than the Samsung 9003X, which was already impressively slender.
The metal chassis looks reassuringly solid, constructed from a lightweight aluminium/magnesium alloy. We were impressed at just how light the Aspire S3 feels when [...]
In the world of today, there are many diverse meanings to the word “painting”. Needless to say, there are also loads of coloring compounds that someone can utilize; depending upon the particular art form that they are creating. Body painting is one of the most famous forms of sketching that has become popular in the past few years. Let’s take a look at these fabulous hand painting art by Mario Mariotti an Italian artist from Florence.
Inside the JVC GX-PX1′s gigantic barrel and thin, slim body is a promising camera and camcorder hybrid. There’s a 10x optical zoom, 10-megapixel camera, 1080/60p HD video recording at up to 36Mbps, and can shoot at 60fps at 5.7-megapixels.
The 3-inch LCD swivels and the camera comes with 32GB of internal memory. No price or release date out yet, but it’s supposed to release by the end of the month.
Are you in a hurry to lose weight and keep it off? Most of us would like to lose weight as fast as possible and then not gain it back.
It would be far easier to lose weight permanently if replacement parts weren’t so handy in the refrigerator. ~Hugh Allen
Hugh Allen is right. It is so tempting to eat when you know your chocolate cake with strawberry frosting is just inside the refrigerator.
It is so tempting to eat when all your good food and good beer is just five steps away from the table. It is so tempting.
So, my first advice is this – go shopping and buy fruits and vegetables to [...]
Who saw this coming? Oh, right: most everyone. Gotcha. The Federal Government has admitted to storing those full-body scan images that had privacy advocates so worked up over the past few months. This, despite the fact that it said it wouldn’t store the images. Say one thing, do another. Yay.
Even more annoying is the fact that these full-body scanning machines were sold to us as not even being able to store images at all! As if there was no memory for the pictures to go after they had been taken.
Clearly we have been misled.
The U.S. Marshal Service admitted to storing tens of thousands of [...]
Have BlackBerry, will travel? Sure, go to town, vagabonds, just don’t attempt to do so in the UAE come this October. The telecommunications regulatory body there has banned all BlackBerrys and BlackBerry services. Updated.
Abu Dhabi: The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) confirmed on Sunday that BlackBerry Messenger, BlackBerry E-mail and BlackBerry web-browsing services in the UAE will be suspended from October 11.
The suspension is a result of the failure of ongoing attempts, dating back to 2007, to bring BlackBerry services in the UAE in line with UAE telecommunications [...]
When it comes to external hard drives, it’s OK to be a little superficial. WD’s new My Book Studio LX will keep you stealing glances with its aluminum, Mac-matching body and handy customizable e-label.
We trust WD’s My Books to be solid on the inside—this one comes in 1TB and 2TB capacities, has 256-bit hardware encryption and lets you plug in with FireWire 800 or USB 2.0—so a new design on the outside is always welcome.
This one is built from aluminum to compliment your Mac, and its always-on e-label lets you keep an eye on what type of files you’re storing [...]
