H Taxi-driver software to

guide you through

Ever marvelled at a taxi-driver's knowledge of a city's short cuts? Well, you can now be happy, as
soon you would be able to take advantage of that know-how in your own car.

Initial tests of a virtual cab driver have suggested that it could shave over 10 per cent off journey times
through crowded urban streets, reports New Scientist.

The system, known as T-Drive, starts by monitoring the routes taken by cabbies at different times of day.

To test their idea, the researchers used three months of movement data, representing 400 million kilometres
of travel, from a fleet of 33,000 taxis in Beijing.

The taxi trajectories were merged to reveal the roads that cab drivers prefer. Given a request to navigate
between any two points in the city, the system could then choose a route based on the roads that are popular
with cabbies at that time of day.

For a real-world test, the Microsoft engineers asked a pair of drivers to travel between two
locations in Beijing: one was given a route suggested by T-Drive, the other used Google Maps.

Averaged over 30 trials, the two systems produced routes that were roughly the same in length. But T-
Drive seemed to know how to avoid stoppages: it produced average drive times of 23 minutes, almost
4 minutes faster than Google Maps.

Yu Zheng, an engineer at Microsoft Research Asia in Beijing, said the advantage comes from the
drivers' intimate knowledge of Beijing streets.

Logitech has unveiled a new solar-powered wireless keyboard - the K750
The slim, wireless K750 sports a couple of solar strips above the row of function keys which provide
the keyboard's power. The company says that it can draw energy from internal lighting as well as
the sun, and will keep on going even after being kept in the dark for a few months.
The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 is the company's first keyboard powered wholly by light.
In addition to sunlight, the device's integrated solar panel will also be able to draw power from
ambient, indoor light.
The chiclet-type keys benefit from Logitech's Incurve design, which is said to provide a little extra
keying comfort by supporting "the shape of your fingertips, while helping guide your fingers to the
right key."
The K750 is a cordless keyboard and connects wirelessly with Logitech's low profile Unifying receiver
over a 128-bit AES encrypted, 2.4GHz connection.
The company has also developed a solar power app that includes a lux meter to help position the
keyboard in the best sunbathing position, and gives useful information about the keyboard's battery
levels. It'll even send out an alert when power gets low.

Quirky has a cool new product in the works called the Trek Support. The
thing is a backpack that can hold your gadgets and a notebook, but with an
added bonus. The gadget section has pockets for four different items and the
thing can charge three items at one time.
The notebook sleeve is removable and is held in place with Velcro. Inside the
backpack is a battery that you charge from the AC outlet in your home or
hotel. That battery charges the gadgets and is good for 7 hours depending on
what you are charging. The laptop section will fit machines with up to a 15-
inch screen.

USB port makes it easy to get photos moved onto your computer. It uses 2 AAA
batteries. Also it provides clear night vision and can record video upto 1 minute.

Dotpen pro from Candle Dragon seems to have everything to be the perfect digital

Presidential State Car

The current presidential limousine entered service on January 20, 2009. According to GM, the
manufacturer, the "2009 Cadillac Presidential Limousine" is the first not to carry a specific model
name. The vehicle's outward appearance is that of an enlarged Cadillac DTS limousine; however, the
vehicle's chassis and driveline are actually sourced from the GMC Topkick commercial truck. Styling
elements are sourced from a variety of GM vehicles; for example, the car uses Cadillac
Escalade headlights, not DTS units. Although a price tag has not been announced, according
to London-based newspaper The Guardian, each limousine cost the U.S. tax
payers US$300,000. During his presidency, Barack Obama has also
used the limousine of former President George W. Bush
consistently, during visits nationwide and internationally.

General specifications
Most details of the car are classified for security reasons. It is completely fitted with military
grade armor at least five inches thick, and the wheels are fitted with run flat tires. Due to the
thickness of the glass, much natural light is excluded, so a fluorescent halo lighting system in
the headliner is essential.
The car can seat seven people, including the president. The front seats two, and includes a
console-mounted communications center. A glass partition divides the front from back. Three
rear facing seats are in the back, with cushions that are able to fold over the partition. The two
rear seats are reserved for the president and another passenger; these seats have the ability to
recline individually. A folding desk is between the two rear seats. Storage compartments in the
interior panels of the car contain communications equipment. The Secret Service refers to the
heavily-armored vehicle as "the beast".
The United States government also operates similarly designed limousines for VIP guests,
visiting heads of government, and heads of state.

nebula NGC 6210 shows off its oddball structure in a new picture from the
Hubble Space Telescope. The nebula sits about 6,500 light-years away from
Earth in the constellation Hercules. Planetary nebulae actually have little to
do with planets. Instead, the clouds of dust and gas are leftovers from the
quiet deaths of sunlike stars. These medium-size stars shed their outer layers
as they perish, leaving behind dense cores called white dwarfs, which are
surrounded by nebulae of different shapes and sizes.

It's called a penguin.

But this is no ordinary penguin.

It’s the lunar penguin - a squat,
four-legged lunar lander that
looks nothing like a penguin. It
has a few tiny jump boosters
underneath it and on its sides to
propel it along.

So why was it called a penguin?

Probably because it was first
designed to land on the South
Pole of the moon to search for ice.
But scientists can see all sorts of
other possibilities for the hopping
Its design has been based on
tactical weapons technologies –
the rocket engines have been
developed from ground-based
missile defense systems, and its
guidance system comes from the
Tomahawk cruise missile.
Everything has been adapted for
moon work.

So are we soon going to see lots of penguins hopping around the moon?
Not until the year 2012 at least, when these robotic scouts will be used
to search for safe landing spots and useful minerals for colonists to mine.
How much time do you spend at School? Not much
really. Have a look at these figures.

Saturday and Sunday are holidays. Together they

equal 104 days a year.

If u sleep 8 hours a day that adds up to 2,920 hours,

or 122 days a year.

You would probably spend about 2 hours a day

eating which adds up to 30 days a year.

Add on about 30 minutes a day for showering, doing your hair and
cleaning your teeth - that equals 8 days.

School holidays equal about 10 weeks, or 70 days

Add all these days together and you get 364.That Leaves you just
one day to go to school. And we haven’t counted national holidays!

What’s wrong with these figures?

In every home there are candle stubs that are too short to

as they are made of wax that melts at low temperature and
burns at high. When wax cools and hardens, it forms a

uses. These stubs are a great household resource for some
