Stephen Colbert sneaks around Daily Ko’s

August 16, 2007

Stephen Colbert posted an article on Daily Ko’s under the unassuming name “notstephencolbert”

On his show he is having an argument with the head blogger on Daily Ko’s it is hilarious I am watching it now. Stephen is convinced that the head blogger is a Nazi, he even has proof.

Furniture Made from weapons

August 16, 2007

 After more than 30 years of civil war, ending in 1998, the Cambodian gouvernment destroyed 125,000 weapons across the country.In this time Neil Wilford, a small arms specialist with the European Union, and British artist Sasha Constable, saw an opportunity, and decided to create The Peace Art Project Cambodia (PAPC) in November 2003. The Peace Art Project Cambodia was a sculpture project turning weapons into art as expressions of peace.In Cambodia this is the most beautiful way to get rid of weapons – transform them in furniture.From these pictures this furniture doesn’t look to comfortable, but for a good cause they are excelent.

Engadget: Fertility measuring cell phone

August 16, 2007

Report from Engadget

Believe it or not, we’ve seen something like this before — out of Japan, naturally — so we’re a bit surprised to see a patent app roll in from Samsung for a phone capable of tracking a woman’s fertile periods. The idea is to keep the user updated on her “baby” and “no baby” times of the month when she places a call by measuring distance to the eardrum (using either ultrasonic or laser sensors) combined with infrared to get a temperature reading. This corresponds to a woman’s basal body temperature cycle, which in turn maps to her menstrual cycle. In Japan, the concept was intended to boost birth rates by keeping couples in the know on exactly when they might have success — but elsewhere we imagine the intent might be just the opposite. We’ll leave it to our readers’ active imaginations to decide just when and how the user should be kept abreast of said information.
