SPIDER WARNING, SPIDERS SPIDERS SPIDERS: Jumping Spiders Spin Silk Mid-Jump To Help Prepare For Landing


Jumping spiders: for most people, a terrifying combination. For me, a challenge to catch bare handed. And now researchers at Taiwan’s National Chung Hsing University have discovered that some species attach a silk ‘dragline’ before leaping onto their prey to help stabilize flight and control their landing. Plus spiders climb all over you while you sleep. Ahahahahhahahaha, I don’t like you.

The study was conducted with Hasarius adansoni, a common jumping spider species that looks a bit like an eight-eyed koala. Chi’s team compared the gracefully targeted landings of spiders that attached draglines to their jump-off points to the tumbling crashes of silk-less individuals. The silk, which the spiders spin out rapidly as they fly through the air, likely acts as a stabilizer, with spiders presumably halting their jumps with some “internal friction brake,” the researchers conclude.

In-air stability is essential for jumping spiders, which can leap up to 50 times their body length — proportionally comparable to a human covering a football field in one leap

Somebody remind me why we’re studying jumping spiders’ jumps again. Is this like, gonna change airplanes? Are we gonna have airplanes shooting goo before landing now? But seriously, how do researchers know the spiders are even doing this on purpose and it’s not just the equivalent of shitting yourself when you’re scared. Because if I was jumping 50x my body length you better believe I’m gonna land with a squish in my pants.

Hit the jump for two videos, the first of a spider using a silk dragline, the second of a spider that just said f*** it, let’s see what happens.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MDP benchmarks prepare for ludicrous speed

All of this is crammed into a light and slim (0.46 inches / 11.7mm) chassis that’s powered by a 3400mAh Li-ion battery and includes a bevvy of radios (LTE, WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4 LE, GPS, NFC) and sensors (including pressure and humidity).

We put the Snapdragon 800-equipped MDP through its paces by running our usual suite of benchmarks (plus a few more). The results? Prepare for ludicrous speed.

Prepare Your Pockets, Samsung’s Next Galaxy Note Phablet Could Sport A 5.9-Inch Screen


Samsung ’ s Galaxy S IV hasn ’ t even been exposed yet and information of an additional top-tier Samsung smartphone is currently threatening to take a few of its limelight. The Korea Times stated earlier today that the Korean electronics titan is busy dealing with a Galaxy Note phablet followup with a 5.9-inch show behind closed doors.

If the Korea Times ’ report is true then Samsung is taking a more measured strategy to how it scales up smartphone screen sizes — as PocketNow mentions this is (luckily?) a hair smaller sized than what some earlier reports suggested, because for a while there it looked like Samsung was considering projecting a phablet with a 6.3-inch screen. The Times ’ source likewise kept in mind that the Note III would sport an eight-core Exynos processor, a not-so-subtle reference to Samsung ’ s Exynos 5 Octa chipset.

Samsung isn ’ t the first to push up against that 6-inch barrier, and they ’ ll hardly be the last. Chinese OEM Huawei blew past it earlier this year when it unveiled the hefty Ascend Mate and its 6.1-inch display at CES, and ZTE exposed its 5.7-inch Grand Memo during Mobile World Congress. For much better or worse, the plus-sized phone trend doesn ’ t seem to be going anywhere.

In the previous I ’ ve asked how big is too huge for these kinds of phablets, however recalling that ’ s kind of a selective concern. The word “ phablet ” doesn ’ t have a generally accepted definition (it ’ s normally just made use of to describe huge honking phones) — maybe the better concern is at what point are gadgets like the Note and Grand Memo more tablet than phone?

For what it ’ s worth, Samsung and rivals like Huawei and Asus appear keen on making that kind of difference a meaningless one. The Korea Times report comes just days after Samsung pulled back the drape on its Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet in Barcelona during Mobile World Congress — it ’ s the business ’ s smallest Note tablet to date and some variations of the device include the capability to make voice calls. Asus (maybe scooped in a fit of wordplay-induced whimsy) also flaunted its 7-inch FonePad tablet at MWC, and acclaimed its capacity to put voice calls virtually as much as its affordable cost.

Homeland Security Encourages You To Prepare For A Zombie Apocalypse (But With Ulterior Motives)


The Division of Homeland Security is encouraging residents to be prepared for a zombie outbreak, not since they think there’s going to be one, however since they think the preparations you ‘d make for zombies are comparable to those you would certainly produce a natural disaster or terrorist attack, and it’s just a lot more interesting to stock up pretending the undead are coming.

” The zombies are coming!” the Homeland Protection Division states.

Tongue solidly in cheek, the government urged residents Thursday to prepare for a zombie apocalypse, part of a public wellness campaign to urge better preparation for legitimate disasters and emergencies. The idea: If you’re prepared for a zombie attack, the same preparations will certainly assist throughout a typhoon, pandemic, earthquake or terrorist attack.

I imply, sure, in IDEA it appears like a decent plan, until you really see the preparations I made. “Let’s see right here– no food and water, no spare garments or medical supplies, 2 shotguns, an assault rifle and a shit-ton of ammunition.” F \*\*\* yeah, LET’S DO THIS SOME THINGS.

Thanks to hamburglar, who will take cheeseburgers too, so do not think those are safe.

Prepare Your Wallets: Razer’s “Blade” Gaming Laptop To Ship Soon


You know what? 2011 has been a long year. With only a few more weeks to go until we ring in 2012, why not treat yourself to something nice completely ridiculous to finish out the year in style?

According to Kotaku, Razer’s high-end Blade gaming laptop will be going up for pre-order in the next few days, and should be hitting doorsteps by Christmas.

If you haven’t yet heard of the Blade (or if you’re suffering from a sticker shock-induced bout of amnesia), it’s a powerhouse of a gaming rig crammed into an aluminum body that’s less than an inch thick. It’s certainly no slouch when it comes to specs: it sports 2.8 Ghz Intel Core i7, 8GB of RAM, a 2 GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M video card, and an 17-inch LED-backlit display. Oh, and who could forget the 10 context-sensitive touch keys to the right of the keyboard, which change depending on the game currently being played?

In fact, the Blade has only gotten better since last we saw it. Thanks to a considerable amount of media love for the gaming notebook, Razer President Min-Liang Tan says that the company has been able to renegotiate component prices and swapped the 320GB HDD for a 256GB solid-state drive without further inflating the price tag. Is that going to be enough to sway potential buyers? Probably not, but if you have $ 2,800 to burn, I can think of worse things to blow it on.
