Nov. 14, 1666: Watching a Transfusion, and Taking Notes

1666: Samuel Pepys, writing in his famous diary, records the first description of a blood transfusion.
Pepys (whose name is usually pronounced Peeps, or occasionally Peppis) was an able administrator for the Royal Navy, as well as a member of Parliament. But he is best remembered for his sprawling diary kept during the tumultuous mid-1600s, a […]

Google May Want an Android Tablet of Its Own

Google may be planning to enter the tablet market in the medium term — and not just as a partner in an OEM relationship. Eric Schmidt, Google’s executive chairman, told an Italian newspaper that “in the next six months we plan to market a tablet of the highest quality.” However, the remark suggests that it will be Google’s own tablet that the company will be marketing.

How to Choose The Best Leveling Guide!

With the SWTOR release coming up there are going to be many STOR leveling guides cropping up everywhere. Using a guide is up to you yourself but they can be very useful to get the most out of your game, to help you when you really need to and also they are great at saving you time as you will know exactly what you need to do during the game which reduces the chances of you getting lost or the chances of you becoming trapped anywhere as you will know what you are doing.

Instructions

  • 1

    Things To Look For

    Value For Money

    When looking for the best guide you will want one that is great value for money. This means that you will want one that is high quality, informative, contains graphics and is at a good price too! There are many guides out there that are priced too high and only provide you with information on just leveling up and these guides don’t even walk you through the game they just give you the basic knowledge – you need to try and avoid these!

    Paid Guides

    You may be someone looking for a free guide but if you think about they are not going to get you very far. If someone created a free guide how much effort do you think they put in for you? There are guides that may not even be complete which end up being a waste of time! And there will even be those that just talk complete rubbish!

    The reason paid guides are what you need to aim for is because they have had the effort put into them. I have used many paid guides where people have even logged plenty of hours of video footage so you know exactly what you are doing throughout the game!

  • 2

    Another benefit of paid guides is that many of them will have updates for when a patch is released which is very beneficial for people who come to the game later on and for any changes that occur during the game.

    Make Sure The Guide Covers Your Class

    When looking through a guide make sure that it is for your class for example with SWTOR don’t get a guide that is for a Sith warrior when you are in fact a Jedi knight as they are not the same and will just waste your time.

    Find A Guide With Extras

    There are some guides that will put all out for people for example some will go through more than just leveling and will take you through scavenging, getting credits, improving your character, fighting PvP and more things like that!

    Make sure that you follow the above tips to find the perfect SWTOR leveling guide for you to follow that will not disappoint!

Dell Streak Pro D43 launched in China, where Yi shall find some Baidu love

Just as rumored and teased earlier this week, yesterday Dell unveiled the world’s first Baidu Yi-powered smartphone dubbed Streak Pro D43. We won’t bore you with the hardware details again (the D43’s identical to its Japanese Android counterpart 101DL), but it’s worth noting that this dual-core 1.5GHz, quadband HSPA phone focuses on features and services tailored for Chinese users, including some seemingly basic Mandarin voice control (no pressure on Siri just yet), contacts synchronization, Baidu Chinese input, Yi’s own app store and 100GB of free cloud storage that supports multimedia upload and secure file sharing. Essentially, the Yi platform’s basically just another Chinese bastardized Android OS sans Google services — much like Alibaba’s Aliyun, China Mobile’s Ophone and Lenovo’s LeOS; but if you already reside in China and are cool with Baidu’s offering, then get a Micro SIM ready and look out for a China Unicom deal soon.

Google sticks Nexus S ICS update back in the freezer

Eager to get your Nexus S all sticky with an Ice Cream Sandwich update? Google’s saying not so fast, at least for some Nexus S owners. Google community manager Paul Wilcox responded to queries on the mobile support forum, explaining:

If you received an update notification a little while ago but the update isn’t currently available for your phone, this is likely the result of Google pausing the update in your area while we monitor feedback. The Android 4.0 update is continuing to roll out around the world so your phone will receive another update notification when it’s available again in your region.

Apparently the update is continuing to download for some users, but in some cases it won’t install, though Wilcox says that this is “a different scenario.” We’ve reached out to Mountain View for an update, but let us know about your experience in the comments.

IBM says mind control next big thing in human-computer interaction; GLaDOS offers cake reward

From the ongoing Google-Apple turf war on voice recognition to Microsoft’s gesture tracking with Kinect, humans continue to push the envelope on how to interact with computers and devices. Now IBM says mind control will be the next field to see a big leap, predicting breakthroughs within the next five years. Keep in mind that they’re not talking about controlling humans a la Gorilla Grodd … yet. Instead, they’re talking about controlling computer actions and devices via brain waves. IBM software guru and potential Borg recruit Kevin Brown (pictured right) has already been using a headset to move cubes on a computer screen at will. Given the ongoing progress with mind-controlled cars and BrainGate, IBM’s prediction might not be too far-fetched.

Kindle Fire’s 6.2.1 update breaks root, disables SuperOneClick utility

Just when you thought it was safe to root your Kindle Fire with a single click, Amazon has clamped down on homebrewing enthusiasts. The company has begun pushing out an update for the $199 tablet that breaks the root, disabling the SuperOneClick utility in the process. If you’ve rooted your tablet and are still running a version of the Amazon-flavored Gingerbread, you’re susceptible to the update any time you’re connected to a WiFi network. However, if you’ve already made the leap to another version of Android, such as CM7, you can bypass this and any future software updates. There are some improvements with 6.2.1 though, as smoother scrolling, password protected WiFi use and the ability to remove recently used items from the home screen carousel are among the upgrades. If you’re looking to read up on the issue before taking action, roll up your sleeves and hit the links below.

[Thanks, Brad]

Tech mainstays finally come together on something: littering more HD content with more DRM

Who says the big boys can’t be friends? While Samsung, SanDisk, Sony, Toshiba and Panasonic would probably disagree with each other on just about everything, there are still three magical letters that can bring even the biggest rivals together: DRM. While the consortium is doing everything it can to avoid the term, there’s no hiding the truth — the temporarily-named ‘Next Generation Secure Memory Initiative’ is designed to protect HD content by using “unique ID (identification) technology for flash memory and robust copy protection based on public key infrastructure.” Just when we thought Louis C.K. had proven that slapping DRM around something wasn’t the best approach, here we go taking a few monumental steps in the wrong direction.

In essence, it sounds as if they’re crafting a way to distribute Blu-ray-quality material on SD cards and embedded memory (sound familiar?), and they’re also hoping that this will “enable various HD content applications such as HD network download, broadcast content to-go and HD Digital Copy / Managed Copy from Blu-ray Disc.” Notably, we’re told that Android-based smartphones, tablets, TVs and Blu-ray products in particular can look forward to taking advantage — in other words, Apple’s going to keep doing what Apple does. If all goes well, they’ll start licensing the new secure memory technology early next year, and if we had to guess, we’d say the adoption trajectory perfectly matches that of slotRadio. Good luck, folks — you’re going to need it.

Facebook app update brings Timeline to the iPhone, iPad version coming soon

Facebook’s Timeline feature has only just begun to roll out across the globe, and now an iOS version has sidled up next to its Android counterpart — making it even easier for us to recheck our social network back stories. The new app is currently only available for the iPhone, but Facebook states that an iPad-friendly update will arrive soon. You will need to have already activated the timeline function on the web-based original, but downloading the latest version will also grant access to your friend lists and subscriptions. Some requisite performance improvements are also promised too. Cringe at some portable post-millennial fashion mistakes by grabbing the download at the source.

Verizon Wireless kicks off trade-in program for southern US residents, offers up to $300 credit

If you’re drooling over a new phone and happen to live in the southern United States, we thought you might like to know that Verizon is literally paying prospective customers to jump ship. All you have to do is bring in a mobile phone, regardless of carrier, where you’ll qualify for up to $300 toward a new handset from Big Red. If you’re curious, we’re told that non-smartphones will automatically receive a $50 credit, while more advanced devices will need to be evaluated by an in-store rep. The program is expected to last through the end of the year, and extends to residents of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. Didn’t make the list? Well, uprooting your family is always an option — although, we’d probably advise against that.
