The 56-page alleged leaked Microsoft document has given us a fascinating look into what might be the next generation of Xbox hardware, but Ars Technica has also spotted a sign that Microsoft wanted to buy out the OnLive streaming games service. In a list of “threats” to the Xbox 720, the document’s creators said that OnLive could “up-end the console gaming market by making expensive consoles and PCs unnecessary for AAA gaming.” If it partnered with a carrier like AT&T, it could even produce cheap subsidized hardware.
According to notes on the downloadable version of the presentation on Scribd (not in the online version), Microsoft considered OnLive a “potential acquisition target” for these reasons. All signs point to this being written…

Question by : Would robotics be considered biotechnology?
so I have to make this biotechnology scrapbook for my Bio class and I came across this article on robotics and a computer software program that allows computers to see. Would this be considered biotechnoloy?
Answer by novangelis
That would not be biotechnology. Some aspects of robotics are considered bioengineering, but generally it is at the level of level of applications of engineering to living systems. A robotic knee joint for amputees would be bioengineering. Biotechnology is the use of living systems to make products or otherwise effect a specific specific change in materials. Making making pharmaceuticals in yeast or using bacteria to consume material in a toxic spill would constitute biotechnology.

In other seafood related news comes Calvin, a calico lobster caught off the coast of New England that marine biologists are calling a 1-in-30-million specimen rarity. The odds of lobster colors: apparently people have worked those out. Calvin was on the way to being steamed and dipped in melted butter when a chef spotted him and donated him to an aquarium.
A post at the aquarium’s blog explains that lobsters come in many different colors, ranging from brown and orange to white.
“While white appears to be the most rare at an estimated 1 in 100 million, coming in second place with an approximate 1 in 30 million is the calico lobster,” according to the aquarium’s exhibit galleries blog.
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? “If I were that chef I would have at least torn a claw off and tried it first?” YES! What other pretentious @$ $ hole could say they’ve tried a 1-in-30-million calico lobster? You’ll be the talk of the yacht club!
Thanks to my buddy Terry, who’s really good at eating. Like, REALLY good (he’s disgusting and it makes me sick).
Microsoft promised a full version of its Skype for Windows Phone software in April back when the original beta was released at Mobile World Congress earlier this year. The company delivered on that promise today by releasing version 1.0 of Skype for Windows Phone, taking the client out of beta and into a final shipping version.
There are some minor improvements in the 1.0 release, including a search and add new contacts feature, but the final version still lacks the ability to receive calls when Skype isn’t running — a limitation that a Skype spokesperson told us is due to “a combination of how Skype works and how the Windows Phone OS works.” Other improvements include the ability to call landlines, an improved launch time, and other…

college applications ask for the awards I have earned whether they are academic or not.
Is Robotics national championship considered an academic event?
I also finished 4th in state for junior engineering competition.
Are those considered “academic awards”??
Answer by Josh daniel
Definitely! Those are great achievements for your resume, good job!
Both require advanced science and mathematical skills, so they’re definitely academic.

Microsoft and Nokia reportedly mulled over an idea of making a joint bid for Research in Motion (RIM), according to reports.
Microsoft, Nokia and RIM executives reportedly met regularly to discuss closer partnerships and the mobile industry. The Wall Street Journal claims the status of the talks is unclear but that informal discussions took place between executives. RIM has been struggling to ease investor confidence as the company’s stock has continued to slip during 2011. If the rumors of talks are genuine then it highlights how difficult RIM is finding the mobile market this year.
Microsoft and RIM announced in May that Bing would become the default search engine for BlackBerry devices. The partnership is a deep one and involves Bing being integrated at the operating system level. The integration includes location based services too. Bing is the preferred search provider in the browser and Bing is the default search and map application for new BlackBerry devices. Bing also shipped as the default search experience and map app for the BlackBerry PlayBook. The interface is based on the company’s Metro UI style as seen in Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 devices.
RIM struggled with a three-day service outage in October. BlackBerry BES and BIS services were impacted in Europe, Middle East, India and Africa on October 10, 11 and 12. The outage also spread to the U.S., Canada and Latin America, preventing users from receiving mail, BBM messages and surfing the internet.
Microsoft and Nokia reportedly considered a bid for BlackBerry makers RIM originally appeared at WinRumors.com.

Because the man is always trying to get a boozehound down, Russia has classified beer as alcohol instead of food, despite the fact I practically live off the stuff. Well, that, and the scorched flesh of my enemies (I’m an alcoholic dragon).
Until now anything containing less than 10% alcohol in Russia has been considered a foodstuff.
Russian alcohol consumption is already twice the critical level set by the World Health Organization.
The move, signed into law on Wednesday, will allow ministers to control the sale of beer in the same way that spirits are controlled.
Correspondents say it is common to see people swigging beer in the street and in parks as if they are drinking soft drinks.
It is not restricted to certain stores and is sold around the clock.
Damn, Russia actually sounds pretty cool. Plus I heard you could buy vodka in cans out of vending machines over there. I may just have to move Russia into my top-10 vacation spots to check out! “What are the other ones?” Staycation written nine times :/
Thanks to Pells G, who agrees if beer isn’t food, then why has it made me so fat? “Well, it still has calori–” DON’T YOU GO BRINGING SCIENCE INTO THIS.
So, an update. Er, a refresher if you will. Back in September of last year, TiVo announced that ingrained Hulu Plus access would be coming to its DVRs “in the coming months,” but we’ve heard precisely nothing on the matter ever since. Enter the present. We’ve got a tipster who owns a TiVo Premiere and was just invited to join a Field Trial to “test Hulu Plus on TiVo,” and he’s also receiving codes to receive a free month of service. It’s hard to say what kind of gap we’re looking at between the testing period and the go-live period, but at least we’ve got a little assurance that no one simply forgot about their promise. In related news, other tipsters are starting to receive some fairly interesting surveys from TiVo itself, with a few questions in particular asking consumers how they’d feel about the option to “stream live TV, DVR recordings and TV shows from a cable company’s On Demand library to one’s iPad.” This seemingly includes in-home and remote streaming, and we have to say — streaming to the tablet just might be the magic feature that finally gets TiVo out of the hurt locker. Probably not, but are you really going to judge us for being blindly optimistic?
