Police in Ferugson, Missouri have begun wearing on-body cameras, following the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown last month. Police Chief Tom Jackson tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that his department received about 50 body cameras last week from two companies, Safety Visions and Digital Ally. Some officers wore them to a protest on Saturday, though Jackson says the department is “still playing with them.”
Supporters of on-body cameras say they could provide authorities with a clear and unfiltered record of police interactions with civilians. Brown’s death, at the hands of Ferguson officer Darren Wilson, and the department’s heavy-handed response to protesters have stoked a national debate over police aggression and brutality….

Microsoft is ready to wage the next console war. According to Xbox marketing chief Yusef Mehdi, the Xbox One is now in mass production, and the company’s expecting to ship millions and millions of consoles this holiday season. Pre-orders are already sold out. But before the company put the assembly lines into motion, Microsoft made one last tweak, bumping the Xbox One CPU’s clockspeed from 1.6GHz to 1.75GHz. Speaking at the Citi Global Technology Conference, Medhi said the CPU boost is on top of the graphics performance improvement that the Xbox received in early August. “The system is really going to shine,” he told analysts.
This is a life-size version of Jack from the Mass Effect universe made entirely out of paper by Deviantartist Tankball. As I’m sure I’ve told you before, I actually tried to romance Jack in Mass Effect II but didn’t understand that once you set up a romance it doesn’t happen until you were heading into the final mission so I kept going back to talk to her and choosing different dialogue options until I pissed her off and she refused to ever talk to me again. Aaaaaaand that’s when I went with plan B: Tali’Zorah the lobster girl. I actually romanced Tali again in Mass Effect III because I am a FAITHFUL COMPANION. Damn if I didn’t spend some time staring at all those other hot alien bodies though. Mmmmm — Samara, Liara, Garrus. “Garrus?” Hey — an alien is an alien, who cares if it has a penis like a spiked war club? “I do.” And that’s why you’d make a terrible astronaut.

This is the Mass Effect EDI latex bodysuit and helmet created by the folks over at Anatomic-Latex. It looks so good it’s hard to believe that’s an actual woman standing there with no special effects. ZIP ZAP, CANNOT COMPUTE, CANNOT COMPUTE. That was me pretending to be an artificial intelligence system.
Mass Effect EDI latex costume cosplay is made of 0.6-2.0 mm latex. Helmet is made of latex too. All silver designs and texture patterns are ingrained in the latex, meaning it won’t wear or rub off. Suit also has glow-in-the-dark / uv reactive pieces(see yellow detail).
Was anybody else disappointed EDI wasn’t a romance-able character in Mass Effect 3? She was all about Joker. I romanced Tali’Zorah in Mass Effect 2 after I blew it with Jack, then romanced her again in Mass Effect 3 because I am a FAITHFUL COMPANION. That and EDI wasn’t an option. Don’t act like you wouldn’t bang a computer given the chance. “Dammit GW, she was a robot!” YOLO.

Sure, LG’s present 55-inch OLED HDTV is pretty expensive with an US MSRP of $ 12K, however that might begin to alter next year when panel supplier LG Display kicks its brand-new 8G production line into full gear. LG Electronics holds a 38 percent stake in the company and although it supplies screens to lots of others too, the next generation of 55EM9700s will likely be a big section of the displays produced. Although LCD producers ramped up 8G amenities capable of producing six 55-inch displays from one piece of glass in the late 2000s, oversupply triggered costs to drop and manufacturing to slow down, including at LG Display.
Now, brand-new display modern technology is ramping up investment again, which will see this brand-new line set up at its P9 plant in Paju, South Korea at an expense of 706 billion won ($ 655 million). Based on LG’s WRGB OLED evaporation process, it must be capable of working with as many as 26,000 input slabs per month once it falls to complete rate in the first half of 2014. Chief competitor Samsung displayed “manufacturing” OLED HDTVs last year and lots of demo units at CES with a mid-year release prepared, we’ll see if it handles to keep up prior to / if the tech goes mainstream.
