Perhaps the biggest question mark in Apple’s current business strategy is the game plan for its unprecedented cash balance — a pile of money roughly $ 100 billion deep. Some investors have called for a big dividend payout, others want to see it invested in acquisitions, but very few people are calling on Cupertino to continue to sit on it for much longer.
To that end, the company has announced that it’ll be holding a press conference tomorrow at 9AM Eastern to “announce the outcome of [...] discussions concerning its cash balance.” Notably, it points out that nothing else will be discussed — many investors and members of the media are likely hoping for details on new iPad sales performance over the opening weekend, but it seems that…
They say that fools and their money are soon parted, and no one knows that better than the sports junk hucksters at Power Balance. Despite filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in federal court on Friday, the company has high hopes for their new product, something called Performance Mouth Gear.
Let’s clear up one thing first: it’s a mouth guard. That’s it. Of course, the marketing wizards at Power Balance aren’t content to leave it at that; oh no, it’s supposedly much more. According to the company, Performance Mouth Gear incorporates “innovative technology to properly align the jaw and the spine through optimal positioning of the bite.” They even go as far as citing a a handful reputable journal articles to make their case.
Sounds great, no? They’re fighting for all the credibility they can get, considering they have a history of just making things up. Case in point: their Power Balance bracelets claimed to endow users with “up to a 500% increase in strength, power and flexibility.” The bracelet’s key ingredient? A holographic sticker.
Australia’s Competition and Consumer Commission called them out on the obvious BS, and among other things, made publicly retract their claims. Here’s a gem from one of their corrective ads:
We admit that there is no credible scientific evidence that supports our claims and therefore we engaged in misleading conduct in breach of s52 of the Trade Practices Act 1974.
So, they lied. I’m sure that’s going to inspire tons of people to buy their new mouth guards! Credit where credit is due though, this new pitch is just a hair more believable than saying their holographic bracelets can affect the user’s “natural energy.” They’re learning!
It’s always a shame when a company falls on hard times, but I can’t help but look at this situation with a little bit of schadenfreude. Power Balance is swimming in both debt and bad feelings, but it’s their own fault, and I’m looking forward to seeing how their new plan pans out.
This is a picture of a diver balancing a ten foot shark vertically because apparently you can do that if you have balls big and heavy enough to keep you on the ocean floor. Which this lady clearly does.
[The diver] balanced a vertical 10-foot shark thanks to her unusual ability to put it into a trance. To create the state, the Italian diver rubs the ampullae of Lorenzini, the name give to hundreds of jelly-filled pores around the animal’s nose and mouth. She has used the technique to remove parasites and fishing hooks caught in shark mouths.
Simple as that — you just gotta rub the ampullae of Lorenzini around the nose and mouth. Pfft, and they made that Jaws movie seem like it was such a big deal! GOD, JUST RUB HIS LIPS, DUMMIES!
Thanks to Matt, who tried to convince me you can hypnotize a bull by dressing up like a milk-cow in heat. I’ve rarely felt so violated.

The Disrupt Hackathon In San Francisco Has Officially Begun
Nintendo’s kid-tested, researcher-approved Wii Balance Board has struck at the heart of the medical supply industry yet again — this time, the Bluetooth-connected scale is being used to help physically challenged children at Shriners Hospital in Houston. Seniors at Rice University hand-machined a set of force-sensitive parallel bars and programmed a monster-shooting game called Equilibrium to get kids excited about improving their walking gait, where they can play and score points with each proper step they take. The game automatically ratchets up the difficulty as patients improve, and handrails will play a part too, with a custom three-axis sensor box able to detect how much patients rely on the parallel bars (and dock points accordingly) in an effort to improve their posture. Yep, that sounds just a wee bit more useful than the Balance Board lie detector or the Wii Fit Roomba. Video after the break.

Kodak and Apple win early victories at International Trade Commission, big bucks hang in the balance
Looks like the US International Trade Commission’s had a busy week in tech, as Bloomberg reports the organization has ruled on two long-standing patent wars involving Apple, Nokia, RIM and Kodak. While neither is out of the woods quite yet, two companies have reason to be pleased: Apple and Kodak. ITC Judge E. James Gildea ruled that five Nokia patents don’t apply to Apple products, making a ban on iDevice importation unlikely in the United States, and the commission has also agreed to reconsider Kodak’s case against Apple and RIM (regarding camera image previews) with its full six members present. Since nobody likes having their products seized at customs, even such preliminary verdicts can lead to large cash sums being paid out, and Kodak thinks it’s found a whopper here — Bloomberg reports that Kodak received a total of $ 964 million in licensing fees from Samsung and LG, and the company thinks it can suck $ 1 billion out of its latest pair of defendants. We’ll let you know how it goes down.

what do you mena by “cancellation in progress in Xoom”? Why the balance wasn’t reflected in Paypal funds?
Question by bobex: what do you mena by “cancellation in progress in Xoom”? Why the balance wasn’t reflected in Paypal funds?
Answer by Ben19999
and why did you post this question twice?
What do you think? Answer below!
Semi-nude runners (like me) have been excited about the New Balance Minimus for a while now. These are supposed to be as barefoot as the VFFs but with a little more protection. They’re obviously not five-fingered but they’re “closer to barefoot” and look quite light and comfortable.
We covered these things a few months ago and they should be arriving in stores this spring, which is a while to wait, obviously.
Bonus – BirthdayShoes pointed us to a video of a dirty hippy (really ultramarathoner Anton Krupicka) wearing the shoes. Video after the jump.
