The Very First Lighter Phone SB6309

Although I fully admit to chuckling quite a bit after first seeing this cellphone with a built-in cigarette lighter, I can see some practicality with it. After all, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard of my smoking friends losing their lighter. I’ve been asked numerous times if I happen to have a lighter on me, despite that they’re fully aware I don’t smoke. Having a lighter built into your cellphone would come in incredibly handy. After all, your phone is almost always somewhere within reach.....

Samsung surprised us today with the launch of an affordable solar powered mobile phone in India. We were banking on the Blue Earth phone but it’s the Solar Guru (Guru E1107) that will make its way first to the commercial market.
The phone won’t be looked upon for its features but rather for its solar charging prowess, which for 1 hour of solar charging can give around 5-10 minutes of talk time. It supports dual GSM bands (900/1800MHz) and includes a 1.52-inches 65K CSTN screen, FM Radio, MP3 ringtones, torch, Mobile Tracker, Fake Call and a 800mAh battery.

Apart from India, Solar Guru will also be launched in June in Europe, Southeast Asia, Southwest Asia and Latin America.

It will go for just Rs. 2,799 ($59).

How many times have you said to yourself: “I really, really wish I could cook a pizza while driving.” Well have I got something for you.
The Porta-Pizza oven could be just what the doctor ordered. This 12-volt pizza oven looks almost like an April Fools prank from The Onion, but it’s real. Now I’d be afraid that I’d kill my car battery with the amount of power you’d need to cook pizza, but what the heck do I know? And what’s to stop you from making toast in your front seat with this? Yay, toast on the go! Just plug it into your 12-volt accessory outlet, add your ingredients and get cookin’!

Now I thought people texting and driving were bad, but I bet dropping a scorching hot slice of melty mozzarella and pepperoni onto your lap is sure to get you into an accident or two.

This Stupidiotic invention is available from Stupidiotic for $36 (USD). I wonder if this is how Domino’s plans on reviving their 30-minutes or less promise now…


Mimo Mini USB Monitor

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

Looking for that extra bit of screen real estate to get you through the busy workday? Referring to notes while writing an e-mail, checking info in a spreadsheet while entering data into a web page, keeping an eye on your to-do list while browsing YouTube... it's handy to have additional monitor space at the ready.

LightLane Personal Bike Path

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

A few months ago the LightLane personal bike path was merely a competition entry in conceptual phase. Using high powered laser beams mounted to bicycle seat posts, the light generated so much interest that the designers took it into development.

Alex Tee, a mechanical engineer, and industrial designer Evan Gant, who both work with the Boston-based design firm Altitude, Inc. are currently in the production engineering phase of development. The proposed LightLane model uses two high-visibility DPSS (diode-pumped solid state) green lasers mounted alongside traditional bright red LEDs to crisply mark a broad path on the pavement. We were excited to see the recent video release of early beta testing (see below), which demonstrates the potential efficacy of this product in poorly lit road scenarios.

While the timeline for release is still unknown and the final cost remains to be seen, we're already sold.

Check out product renderings and more images after the jump.


Tidiness is supposedly a virtue. It could also be viewed as a disease, an obsession with order at the expense of utility. I firmly disagree with this second statement: I’m a Virgo, and therefore everything must be in place at all times lest I am thrown into an OCD-stoked rage.

I am also too lazy to actually tidy up, which is why this stool from Berlin design team LLot Llov, cutely named Todd, is ideal. A useless stack of twisted metal out of the box, it only becomes a comfy stool when clothes are tossed and strewn across its top. What could be more perfect? Everyone, and I mean everyone, throws their laundry, dirty or clean, onto a chair or stool out of sheer lackadaisical lethargy. Bonus: Put a burner below, and a paella pan on top, and you have the making of a great picnic. Or you would, if Todd could be bought. I’d urge you to write an convince the folks at LLot Llov to produce them but, like you, you lazybones, I really can’t be bothered.


I have a great admiration for people who are able to build things with their hands. Having two left hands has made it impossible for me to make anything, except maybe some eggs for breakfast. It's therefore that when I look at these photos, I'm in awe.
Here's someone who has made from a Laverda motorcycle a sidecar. Not just any sidecar, but a supercar sidecar, including gulfwing doors. The sidecar part looks amazing, a true work of art. It's almost like it came straight out of the factory.

The builder, a Frenchman named Francois Knorreck built this in his spare time. The Laverda, named Snaefell, was built in a mere 10,000 hours... incredible. Since it was a part-time build, it took 10 years to finish.

Parts were used from other vehicles, like a Kawasaki 1000, VW Golf GTI, Audi 80 and a Citroen Xantia car. Further gear was found on BMW and Renault cars.

Microsoft has shown Windows 7 running on Netbooks ever since it introduced the operating system last fall. However, helping consumers get it on their notebooks has proven more tricky.
Microsoft is considering offering Windows 7 on a thumb drive to allow Netbook owners to more easily upgrade their machines, a source tells CNET News.
The move, which is still under consideration, is one of several things Microsoft has looked at to try to make it convenient to upgrade machines that don't come with a CD or DVD drives.
Microsoft executives have said that they recognize that upgrading Netbooks poses a challenge and are exploring ways that the company can make it easier. In an interview on Thursday, Senior Vice President Bill Veghte said that Microsoft had nothing to announce on that front.

The challenge of getting Windows 7 on to older Netbooks threatens to cast a shadow over the technical work Microsoft did to get Windows 7 running on Netbooks. Its predecessor, Windows Vista, proved ill-suited to Netbooks forcing Microsoft to continue selling Windows XP as its answer to the low-cost notebook phenomenon.

Although a USB flash drive could offer the simplest way to move a Netbook to Windows 7, there are other options. Buyers with an external drive could hook up that to their Netbook, while another option would be an upgrade through a service such as Best Buy's Geek Squad. Microsoft also sells a downloadable version of Windows today, so, in theory it could do the same with Windows 7, allowing buyers to put the OS on their own thumb drive.

Matt Bonin, a merchant director at Best Buy, said this week that the company is aiming to work with Geek Squad to develop services to streamline Windows 7 upgrades. As for Netbooks, he said the company recognizes the challenge they present and said the store already offers services to load other types of software, such as antivirus programs.

Complicating matters further is the fact that most Netbooks are running Windows XP. Those moving from Windows XP can buy an upgrade version of the software, but must back up their data, do a clean installation of the operating system and then reload their applications.

The same goes for all XP owners, as well as users looking to move from a higher-end version of Vista to a lower-end version of Windows 7 and all users in Europe trying to upgrade to Windows 7 using the browser-less "E" version--the only one Microsoft plans to offer there.


The spam email appears to offer a link to a YouTube video, but instead sends the recipient to a Trojan Downloader hosted on a compromised Web site. The file offered is called Michael.Jackson.videos.scr (MD5: 664cb28ef710e35dc5b7539eb633abca). This file is located on a legitimate Web site hosted in Australia belonging to a radio broadcasting station. Upon executing the file, a legitimate Web site at is opened by the default browser in order to distract the user by presenting a news article for them to read.

In the background, three further information-stealing components are downloaded and installed by the malware.

New Amazing Features on Google Books

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

Think about how you use a book. You want to read it, sure--but there are a host of other ways for you to interact with the words between the covers. You might want to flip through the pages to find an image. You might want to open right up to the table of contents so you can find your favorite chapter. And you might want to pass it along to a friend so they can have a look at it, too.

Today I'm excited to announce that we're rolling out changes to Google Books that give readers and book lovers everywhere new ways to interact with the words and images contained within the books we've brought online. We've also made it easier for users to share previews of their favorite books on their blogs or websites. Here's a tour of some of the enhancements we've made to the way you search, browse, and share the books that we've digitized:

1. Embeds and links - This new toolbar option allows you to embed a preview of a full view or partner book in any of your websites or blogs--all with a simple html snippet. It's a lot like the embed tag that makes it so easy to share YouTube videos. Programmers comfortable with API tools could accomplish this via our Embedded Viewer API, but this new solution is much easier for everyone to use. You can also choose to grab a URL link to email or IM to friends that takes them to the same book and page on Google Books. For readers, this means they can more easily share pages from books you love, while publisher partners can gain even more awareness across the web to promote their books.

2. Better search within each book - You've always been able to search inside books you find on Google Book Search. Now, for public domain and partner books, we've made it easier to see exactly where your search term appears within the book by showing you more context around the term, including an image from the part of the page on which it appears. You can click on those images to navigate directly to the pages inside the book. You can also sort your search results by relevance in addition to page order in the book or magazine.

In the search results bar, you'll find 'Previous' and 'Next' buttons that allow you to browse through search hits quickly and easily.

3. Thumbnail view - Click on the thumbnail view button in the toolbar to see an overview of all the pages in a public domain book or in a magazine. Clicking on a thumbnail image will take you to that page in the reading view (available for "full view" books).

4. Contents drop-down menu - Above the book itself, you'll find a Contents drop-down that allows you to jump to chapters within the book--or articles within a magazine. (In case you're wondering, we built this using the same structure extraction technology that supports our mobile version of Google Books.)

5. Plain Text Mode - We've made it easier to find our plain text versions of public domain books. If a book is available in full view, you can click the 'Plain text' button in the toolbar to see our HTML version of the text (derived via OCR for full view books). This is especially useful for visually impaired Google users, who can use this format for text-to-speech and other types of software.

6. Page Turn Button and Animation - In addition to scrolling through the book, you can now also click the page turn button at the bottom of the screen, even if you haven't yet finished the page. An animated line moves with the page turn to make it easier to keep track of your location in the text.

7. Improved Book Overview Page - On the Overview page you'll find an assortment of useful data about the book, including reviews, ratings, summaries, related books, key words and phrases, references from the web, places mentioned in the book, publisher information, etc.

We hope that you enjoy these improvements to Google Books. As always, feel free to provide feedback. Happy reading!

Six years ago Chris Ebejer conceived a way to stop babies from overheating.
Now, proudly, he is delivering his fully-formed creation to the world.
The father of one has signed a £12.5million contract with a manufacturer to take his 'Babyglow' babygrows global.
The garments change colour with baby's temperature - meaning they can tell parents when their child is getting too hot and help prevent catastrophic illness.

'Mothers are going to find these invaluable,' said Mr Ebejer, who lives with wife Jane, 44, and son Aaron, 17, in Long Melford, Suffolk. 'Heat is invisible. The suit changes that and makes it visible.
'It communicates to the mother where a baby can't.'
Overheating can cause a baby's brain to shut down and is also an indication of illnesses such as meningitis.
Mr Ebejer, who had his idea while watching a documentary about babies, began the search for an ink pigment with heat-sensitive molecules.
He spent six years and £700,000 working with scientists to embed into cotton babygrows.
The Babyglows come in pink, blue and pastel green, all of which turn white as soon as the baby's temperature rises above 37c.
They will be available from October for £20 a pack.
The worldwide patent has been bought by manufacturers Quality Workwear 4 U, in Milton Keynes.
Mr Ebejer has signed sales deals in a number of countries including the U.S. and is negotiating with High Street stores.
He added: 'It has taken over my life but I'm very passionate about

There has been widespread unrest and turmoil all over Iran, since the alleged botched results of the Presidential elections came out. There has been a ban on reporting for the international media and Iranian authorities have been quick to block access to various social networking websites such as Twitter and Facebook. Still, many people are using proxy servers and other methods to make sure that the news reaches to the the world via such online mediums, one way or another.

Since the onset of the Iranian unrest, Facebook has been overwhelmed with the influx of numerous posts, pages and newly created groups. So is the pressure on Google to translate millions of pages written in Farsi. Considering the gravity of these events. Google and Facebook announced that they have included Farsi in their language databases.

Via its official blog page, Facebook stated it has indeed included Farsi into its language capabilities and it will be available from tonight onwards. According to the statement, the Persian language version of Facebook was already developed, but Facebook felt the need to launch it in the midst of the Iranian crisis, to facilitate communication between concerned nationals and the outside world. Even with the launch of the Persian version, it should be noted that, translation is in its infancy and would take time to be perfected.
To enable viewing of Farsi pages in Facebook, the user’s browser should be set to Farsi. This would automatically display Facebook’s Farsi version. Facebook has stated that over 400 Persian speaking individuals have already voluntarily submitted numerous translations for the Farsi version.

Google also announced via its official blog the addition of Farsi in Google Translate, considering the events taking place in Iran. As the translation isn’t perfect in the translated pages, hence, Google is inviting users to submit translations by clicking on the ‘contribute a better translation’ on the translated pages.

Government of India today banned the import of mobile phone which has zero IMEI or No IMEI which was creating a problem for security agencies to track the culprits the Directorate General of Foreign Trade said in a notification.

IMEI is a 15 digit code which appears on the operator’s network whenever a call is made.

Mobiles phones without IMEI number are considered a security threat and concerns had been raised over their usage after terrorist attacks like the one in Mumbai in November last year.

GSM service providers have already said that they would deny connectivity to cellphones without IMEI number. Concerned over the national security, the Department of Telecommunications had earlier asked operators to disconnect services to handset that does not have an IMEI number.

Cable management is one of the most annoying aspects of modern electronics. Pretty much every single device you connect to your computer or home theater needs a power cord, and tons of products — even whole companies — invest their efforts in keeping the knots to a minimum. The Outlet Wall "reverses the telescope" on the entire idea of wire clutter, putting your cables front and center by covering a wall with power outlets.

The concept is pretty nutty but actually kind of cool — and definitely practical. You'll never have to hunt for an outlet again, and the pattern is just as appealing as wallpaper. The power management for such an array would probably be a nightmare (and I wouldn't try plugging toasters into every outlet), but for a media room that's going to have the lights out most of the time anyway, why not?


Here comes a 4-port USB hub that also works as a charger for adding more juice to your mobile phone.
This 4-port USB hub can draw power from your computer’s USB port to charge the mobile phone. Or alternatively, it’s equipped with a solar panel that is able to soak up sun lights and store in its internal battery. And the stored juice can then be used to recharge a cell phone.

It’s a pretty handy gadget for frequent travelers to bring along, as it provides you more connectivities to your gadgets as well as charging mobile phones. The charger can charge phone models include Nokia, SE, Motorola and Samsung. It claims to be sensitive enough to collect sufficient solar energy even under weak light.

The other LED light is Filter Change Indicator. It will flash amber when it is time to change the pre-filter and will flash red when it is time to change the HEPA filter
Minimal Maintenance: HEPA filter should last one year under normal use. The Filter Change indicator will flash red when it is time to change HEPA filter. The pre-filter should be changed every three months. The unit comes standard with 1 HEPA filter and 4 pre-filters for a year worth of filtration.
Energy Efficient: The system is very energy efficient and can be operated for less then $0.02 per night (@ $0.10/kwh).


Norway's Opera Software opened a new, free service on Tuesday that enables simple sharing of personal computers' pictures, files or music with anyone on the Internet.
The new service, which the company has said would "reinvent the Web" is part of Opera's Web browser, enables direct downloading from personal computer to personal computer and removes any need for data storage at servers in the middle. Files can be viewed with any browser.
Similar technologies have been available before for tech-savvy consumers, but these have required downloading separate software, paying usage fees, or a long process of uploading content -- limiting take-up of the services.

On Thursday last week, Opera posted a note on social networking website Twitter with a link to a Web page saying Opera would "reinvent the Web" on June 16.

That heralding of the new service had helped Opera's share price surge in the past week, although it fell back slightly on Tuesday as the market digested the announcement.

"There were some expectations ahead of the announcement, so the market is only mildly disappointed, said analyst Peder Strand at SEB Enskilda

Strand added, however, that the new service looked innovative and could become an important product differentiator for Opera's browser.

Shares in Opera were down 2.7 percent by 1028 GMT, underperforming the Oslo bourse's 0.8 percent rise and a 1.1 percent rise for European technology shares.

In spite of the early fall, the stock is still up over 12 percent in the last week, at close to a three-year high, giving it a market capitalization of about $544 million.

Opera has built some sharing services for photos and media into the browser but has also opened up the platform for any developers to build their own sharing services.

"We believe it is the revolution of the Internet. We see this as a disruptive technology for Internet services in the next one to five years," Phillip Gronvold, product analyst at Opera, told Reuters.

Opera is the world's third-largest browser maker with about 40 million users, but is far behind Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Mozilla Foundation's Firefox.

"We hope to increase our desktop penetration with this service," Gronvold said. "We feel there's significant time-to-market benefits in browser space."

Internet Explorer is used for about 60 percent of global Internet traffic, Firefox has about 30 percent, and Opera is at 4 percent -- just ahead of Google's Chrome and Apple's Safari, according to Web analytics firm StatCounter.

Microsoft has run afoul of U.S. and European antitrust regulators for bundling its desktop browser with its operating system, which Opera, Mozilla and Google say is an attempt to drive them out of the market.

Microsoft said last week it plans to ship the newest version of its Windows operating system in Europe without Internet Explorer browser.

Microsoft's move could be a boon for rivals, but Opera has said this was not enough to restore competition.

Opera has a small share of the desktop browser market, but its mobile browser is the most widely used browser on handsets.

"Opera today makes around 4 crowns ($0.62) a year per desktop user on average," analyst Peder Strand at SEB Enskilda said.

"If they double the number of users on the back of this product, it would be a huge success that will have a material financial impact for Opera," Strand said.

"However, whether we can expect such a doubling of the customer base, has yet to bee seen," he added.

Gronvold said Opera was working also on a mobile version of Unite, but has not decided on a launch schedule.


Facebook Experiments with Real-Time Search

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

The company introduces a new search interface with some much needed functionality.
Facebook has introduced a revamped search interface that brings real-time results from News Streams users in chronological order. The feature is considered experimental and has been introduced only for a small number of people but the initial reactions seem to be very positive as many have been unsatisfied with Facebook's current search capabilities.

“Those of you in the test group will see new layouts for search results that will continue to include people's profiles, Facebook Pages, groups and applications, and some entirely new Search features. With the test, you will be able to search your News Feed for the most recent status updates, photos, links, videos and notes being shared by your friends and the Facebook Pages of which you're a fan. You will also be able to search for status updates, posted links and notes in Search from people who have chosen to make their profile and content available to everyone,” reads a post on the Facebook blog.

The social networking website's search has always been considered inferior compared to similar services and while it does a decent job in finding people or groups, finding content like photos, videos or status updates was a much harder task. Other services have proven quite successful, having a powerful search tool that allows users to easily find real-time information. The biggest example would be Twitter, of course, which owes much of its explosive growth and popularity on its instant response to current events like the recent Iranian elections.

The new search interface will have a much more unified feel focusing on results from your feed but also offering results from other areas, like people, pages, groups etc. This is a big change from the current search, which places an emphasis on people and pages. The change, along with simplified privacy options coming soon, should allow Facebook to provide a much more Twitter-like experience and it's clear that, while Twitter is still a lot smaller, Facebook wants to be cautious and not rest on its laurels.


Google Apps Sync Disables Outlook Search

Posted by Wonderful-Tricks

The Outlook team has recently been made aware of a serious bug / flaw with the recently announced Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook, and as a result we wanted to provide the Outlook user community with additional details around this problem as well as information on how to address it.
The installation of the Google Apps Sync plugin disables Outlook’s ability to search any and all of your Outlook data. When a Google Apps user installs the sync plugin for Outlook, the plugin modifies a registry key which disables Windows Desktop Search from indexing and providing search functionality for all Outlook data, not just the Outlook data being synchronized from GMail. Because Outlook search relies upon the indexing performed by Windows Desktop Search, Outlook search functions are broken as a result. It is also important to note that uninstalling the plugin may not fix the issue.

Outlook users who are considering the Google Apps Sync plugin should become aware of this issue. If you have already installed this plugin, please take note of the steps below to address the issue.

For Outlook users who have already installed this plugin or have experienced this issue, the only remedy is to change the registry key that was modified by the plugin (click the link for more detail on the registry key):

1) Press the Windows Key + R on your keyboard, and type “REGEDIT”. This will open the Windows Registry Editor.

2) Browse to the following: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search"

3) You will manually have to reset the value of “PreventIndexingOutlook” to “0” (without the quotes). To do this, right click on the “PreventIndexingOutlook” key, select “Modify…”, then change the value data to “0”.

4) Close the registry editor.

The Outlook team has been made aware of a second issue that affects users of the Microsoft Office Outlook Connector which syncs Windows Live Hotmail with Outlook. When a user has the Outlook Connector installed, then installs the Google Apps Sync plugin, the next time Outlook is started an error message comes up stating that “some functionality will be disabled”. The Google Apps Sync plugin modifies a registry key that is used by the Outlook Connector, which results in users seeing this error message. When confronted with this error message, we recommend that users click “Yes” to enable functionality. The Outlook Connector will then continue to function normally. The Outlook Connector will reset this registry key to the correct value.

Finally, we have brought these issues to Google’s attention, and have offered to work with them to find a resolution for our mutual customers. As soon as this is done, we will publish more information.
