iOS 4.3.1 released, fixes a few bugs

Engadget
Apple's just dropped iOS 4.3.1 on iTunes users across the land, fixing a handful of issues related to enterprise apps, AV-out, iPod touch graphics problems, and cellular network connections; not the most exciting changelog, but it's better than a slap across the face. As usual, the update is available for pretty much the full suite of iOS products -- iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch alike. Go on, grab it!

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in]

Traveling Terabyte Project

THE TRAVELING TERABYTE PROJECT

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The traveling terabyte is a project of the hacker community that began in the summer of 2006. Initially conceived as an attempt to bring informational content to friends and associates who couldn't attend DefCon 14 due to their being deployed in uniform or assigned to government contracting details overseas, the project has grown substantially and now touches the lives of numerous servicemen and women, bringing some of the comforts of home to those who find themselves in foreign lands without reliable links to their friends and families.

From a technical standpoint, the project consists of outfitting very large hard drives with highly-compatible enclosures capable of operating in a wide range of environments and connecting to nearly any existing personal computer. These drives are then secured in tactical, damage-resistant packaging, filled with educational and entertaining content, and circulated amid a large circle of friends and associates.

The original concept and design of the first traveling terabyte was the work of Deviant Ollam, however shortly after his first mention of this idea on the DefCon Forums, many other prominent members of the hacker community volunteered their own time, effort, skills, and resources to bring the project to fruition. Certain individuals whose contributions were particularly noteworthy were DaKahuna, Thorn, AST, theprez, and renderman.

More details concerning this project, from its participants to its technical specifications, can be found under the Frequently Asked Questions section of the web site.

Send link in Firefox for Mac OS X - Mail link to this page - shortcut hotkey - a How to with keyconfig 20080929

Well, after being asked by my cousin "By the way, does Firefox RC4 not have a "Send link to this page" function? command + shift + I?", I was on the search. Better yet... I should say, I entered the rabbit hole.... but to save you the same Google search and "not exactly what I'm looking for" link clicking, refreshing and back button wearing out activities, I'll just tell you how it's done.

My configuration for this change (this may not work on any other versions, as this is the only setup I have tested):

Mac mini - Intel - Mac OS X 10.6.6 and Firefox - 3.6.15

Screen_shot_2011-03-13_at_7

 

1. Download the keyconfig addon for Firefox -> click here

2. You will get a series of pop-ups and security warnings from Firefox 

2a. Click "Allow"

2b. Click "Install now"

2c. Click "Restart Firefox"

Screen_shot_2011-03-13_at_7

 

3. From the Firefox menu select Tools > Keyconfig

Screen_shot_2011-03-13_at_8

 

4. Add the context for your new shorcut key, in the following steps...

4a. Click "Add a new key"

4b. Name your key "Send mail"

4c. Paste the following context into the "CODE" area: MailIntegration.sendLinkForWindow(window.content);

4d. Click "okay"

4e. You will then see a field under the name column, with "Send mail" highlighted. Below that, there is a field you can enter your new series of key strokes to activate your new shortcut. I used "Shift - command (flower/Apple) - I (capital i)", since it was used by Safari and that's what I am used to using to send a link. You can, of course, create your own key! Remember, you are actually pressing the key combination you want to use - not typing it in

4f. Click "Apply", then "close"

4g. You will get a new pop-up Javascript warning, click "Okay"

 

5. Restart Firefox and try your new shortcut key!

 

Please feel free to ask me any questions and or report problems, thanks!

Research suggests text messaging could help smokers quit -- Engadget

http://m.engadget.com/default/article.do?artUrl=http://www.engadget.com/2011/03/08/research-suggests-text-messaging-could-help-smokers-quit/&category=classic&postPage=1

We've heard plenty about the perils of cellphones in general and text messaging in particular, but are there some instances where it might actually be good for your health? Well, sort of. Some researchers at the University of Oregon and a few other participating institutions have now found a way to pinpoint the areas of the brain that are most active in controlling the urges to smoke, and they say that information can also be predictive of real-world behavior and the individuals' ability to respond to various smoking cessation programs. One of those such programs tested by the researchers involved sending eight text messages a day to an individual, which they had to reply to in order to document their cravings, mood and cigarette use. That's similar to other programs that rely on a dedicated device to collect data (which have been shown to be effective in helping smokers quit), but the researchers found that using text messages proved to be at least as effective, and is obviously a simpler and cheaper solution

Peel: TV Discovery for iPhone review - @peeltv - I have to try this!

http://www.peel.com/

"TV shouldn't be so hard. Peel makes it easy.

Discover and control TV programming right from your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod Touch®. Lose your remotes, once and for all. Quit scrolling those tiresome grid guides. See what you want, right at your own fingertips: your shows, your controls, your friends.

The app is free, and Peel universal control will be in retail stores on March 8th. Find one near you."

Well, there it is... right from the peel main site, it sounds too good to be true.  I already use the TiVo app for iPad which is awesome... but there is not interaction, with my JVC TV, Vizio TV, LG Blu-Ray, Mac mini or Phillips speaker system. I know, I'm all over the place with brand names. That's why I can't wait to try this product and wait no more I do today. Peel is in Apple retail stores today, march 8th, 2011. I will post a review, after I try this... hopefully later today!

Story on @Digg: @NASA astrobiologist Dr. Richard B. Hoover finds evidence of #alienlife "Aliens exist, and we have proof."

NASA scientist finds evidence of alien life http://t.co/oHNGzTR via @Digg

We are not alone in the universe, says NASA astrobiologist Dr. Richard B. Hoover. And he claims to have the extraterrestrial fossils to back it up.

Aliens exist, and we have proof.

That astonishingly awesome claim comes from Dr. Richard B. Hoover, an astrobiologist at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, who says he has found conclusive evidence of alien life — fossils of bacteria found in an extremely rare class of meteorite called CI1 carbonaceous chondrites. (There are only nine such meteorites on planet Earth.) Hoover’s findings were published late Friday night in the Journal of Cosmology, a peer-reviewed scientific journal.

“I interpret it as indicating that life is more broadly distributed than restricted strictly to the planet earth,” Hoover, who has spent more than 10 years studying meteorites around the world, told FoxNews.com in an interview. “This field of study has just barely been touched — because quite frankly, a great many scientist would say that this is impossible.”
