Online retailer Asos has withdrawn 641 belts from sale after US border patrol officials discovered radioactive material in the belts’ metal studs. According to an internal report obtained by The Guardian, only 49 of the belts were sold before the discovery, and Asos says all purchasers have been contacted informing them of the danger. The belts tested positive for Cobalt-60, a radioactive isotope, and could cause injury if worn for more than 500 hours. The unsold belts are being held in a radioactive storage facility.
Have you see this drone?

A pilot for Alitalia airlines flying into New York’s JFK airport told controllers he spotted a drone.
“We saw a drone, a drone aircraft,” the pilot was heard telling the control tower on radio calls according to ABC News.
“The FAA is investigating a report he saw a small, unmanned or remote-controlled aircraft while on final approach to Runway 31 Right,” FAA spokeswoman Laura Brown said in a statement to CNN.
And now the FBI is looking for help investigating the incident, asking for tipsters with information to come forward.
The press release reads:
On Monday, March, 4, 2013, at approximately 1:15 p.m., the pilot of Alitalia Flight #608 spotted a small, unmanned aircraft while on approach to John F. Kennedy International Airport. The Alitalia flight was roughly three miles from runway 31R when the incident occurred at an altitude of approximately 1,750 feet. The unmanned aircraft came within 200 feet of the Alitalia plane.
The FBI is investigating the incident and looking to identify and locate the aircraft and its operator. The unnamed aircraft was described as black in color and no more than three feet wide with four propellers.
“The FBI is asking anyone with information about the unmanned aircraft or the operator to contact us,” said Special Agent in Charge John Giacalone. “Our paramount concern is the safety of aircraft passengers and crew.”
Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 212-384-1000. Tipsters may remain anonymous.

Mobile Globe Congress is just a couple of days away, but that hasn’t quit Samsung from pulling back the curtain on TELEVISION Discovery: a new service that lets users browse for and see live TELEVISION, on-demand video and even online content from attires such as YouTube. The platform, which will deal with Samsung’s mobile devices and Smart TVs, dishes out recommendations as well as sharpens its ability to gauge your interest in programs the more frequently its utilized. When loaded on a tablet or smartphone, TELEVISION Discovery should function as a universal remote, slinging commands to cable television and satellite boxes, Blu-Ray players, house stereos and even more.
Obviously, if you’re feeling social, the solution will additionally let you share what you’re viewing with others and look into your buddy’s TV-viewing routines. Netflix and Hit will be on tap for the platform in the United States, while Europe will have access to Acetrax, Wuaki, MovieMax, FilmIn, Chili, Pathé and SF Anytime. TV Discovery will hit all of the firm’s 2013 Smart Televisions in the US, Korea and 12 European nations– consisting of France, Germany, Italy and the UK– during the first quarter of this year. Slates and smartphones in those nations, however, will see nab the experience during Q2.

Camping has actually always been an activity balanced on the promise of escape. These days it might be viewed as a hideaway from the hyperpresent now of chirping electronics and the never-ending diversions they deliver. The last time I went on a camping trip, however, no one I understood possessed a cellular phone. In reality, the only transportable electronics I keep in mind seeing throughout those younger trips were flashlights, a few walkie talkies, and the periodic Walkman loaded with a Backstreet Boys audio cassette.
What scares and surprises me most about that memory (aside from remembering that the Backstreet Boys as soon as existed) is this: A many years and change later on, upon reaching a picturesque mountaintop halfway through a three-day trip along the Appalachian Trail, my …

I’m on a seafood diet. I seafood and I…where’d it go?
This is a video of a black-marble jawfish mimicking a mimic octopus. Just like that classic anti-drug PSA I LEARNED IT BY WATCHING YOU! Parents who use drugs, have children who use drugs. Plus some parents who DON’T do drugs will still have kids who do. And some parents who DO use drugs will have kids who DON’T because they’ll be all, “God, mom’s been on the wine since 10AM again and is getting f***in’ sloppy.”
For a good 15 minutes, this black-marble jawfish took the mollusk express, presumably to find food beyond its burrow. As nifty as the fish’s behavior is, the researchers suspect that this isn’t an everyday interaction. From the recent paper in the journal Coral Reefs, “Opportunistic mimicry by a Jawfish”:
Since the Black-Marble Jawfish is distributed from Japan to Australia, whereas the Mimic Octopus is restricted to the Indo-Malay region, we think this is a case of opportunistic rather than obligate mimicry.
Neato. Of course you can’t rule out the possibility that the fish thought those tentacles were other fish to have sex with. Because my dog humps stuffed animals sometimes and they only KIND OF look like him. The giraffe one not at all.
Hit the jump for the video along with a bonus one of two mimic octopi MAKIN’ THE LOVE. Honey, that wasn’t me. But he looked just like you, I swear!

In addition to that three-piece
armor case that chains your iPad to a hotel desk, Kensington quietly added three other products to its lineup — a motley collection running the gamut from a universal tablet case to a doo-dad that vibrates when you’re about to leave your iPhone at home. Starting with the doo-dad, BunjeeAir Power is a $ 100 accessory small enough to fit on a keychain, and pairs with a free iOS app and a special case (included in the bundle). If that sounds like a clumsy setup, keep in mind that Apple doesn’t allow third-party accessories to lock the phone via Bluetooth, so Kensington worked around that by developing an accessory that plugs into the iPhone’s 30-pin connector and communicates over a 2.4GHz wireless connection instead. So, once you’ve put the case on, the keychain will vibrate and beep once you get roughly 30 feet away from the phone, and it’ll eventually lock the device remotely, too. As an added touch, the case packs a 1,500mAh battery and a slot ’round back of the case into which you can insert a credit card or hotel room key to fashion a makeshift kickstand. Too bad none of this will help you the next time you abandon your iPhone in the backseat of a cab.
Moving along, the company announced the KeyFolio Pro, a case with a detachable Bluetooth keyboard and removable velcro corners that’ll fit any 10-inch tablet. The case, which costs $ 100, also has a stylus holder and seven notches, allowing you to prop the tablet up at a 22- to 72-degree angle. Wrapping it up, there’s Absolute Power, a $ 120, 100-watt brick with USB and micro-USB sockets that’s meant to replace the adapter that came with your laptop. Finally, there’s that pen you’ll see in those hands-on shots — an $ 18 stylus that doubles as a real, honest-to-goodness pen, topped off with a removable cap. Peek our hands-on shots below, along with the vid after the break — you know, if watching befuddled actors discovering they’ve forgotten their iPhone is your idea of a rip-roaring time.
Finishing the last part of the Wang Dang Atomic Tango. I had to find the Sex Bot. He was located in the Cerulean Robotics building in Free Side. I even got to “test” the Sex Bot out. Not for kids!

Those reports we heard about Best Buys in the US selling off remaining inventory of the HP TouchPad? Turns out they’re true, and the “fire sale” is taking place nationwide online and in stores. The FAQ page in the retailer’s forums has been updated to announce that it’s reversed the decision to ship everything back to HP, and we’ve also received leaked screenshots confirming the news as well. Best Buy’s online store currently shows the TouchPad as sold out and unavailable in stores, and company reps are hesitant to give official word on exactly how much inventory is left at this point. If the online status doesn’t change between now and sunrise, we have a strong feeling you should expect a Black Friday-style line waiting for you at the brick-and-mortars.
