Army plans to build body armor for women

Quote:
WASHINGTON, July 10 (UPI) -- The U.S. military announced plans to develop body armor in the style of "Xena: Warrior Princess" to be more comfortable and effective for female troops.

The U.S. Army said it plans to engineer body armor designed to fit women's bodies more naturally, The Christian Science Monitor reported. Adjustments would include more curves in the chest and hips, shorter torsos and narrower shoulders.

July 12, 1962: The Day Information Went Global

Quote:
Telstar was launched by NASA on July 10, 1962, from Cape Canaveral, Fla., and was the first privately sponsored space-faring mission. Two days later, it relayed the world's first transatlantic television signal, from Andover Earth Station, Maine, to the Pleumeur-Bodou Telecom Center, Brittany, France.
What a Jalopy, eh?

Japan’s Modi-Corp Unveils Build-It-Yourself Pius Electric Car!

Quote:
Japan’s Modi-Corp has just unveiled a new electric car called the Pius that you can actually build yourself! The Pius, not to be confused with the Toyota Prius, is a single-seat electric car that will be released next spring as a class-1 motorized bicycle in Japan. Modi-Corp expects to sell the Pius primarily to colleges and mechanic schools, where students will be able to see firsthand how electric cars work.

'The Girl from Ipanema' turns 50

The quintessential tune was inspired by Pinheiro when she passed the songwriters in a beachside bar on her way to the sea 50 years ago.

Commodore 64 turns 30: What do today's kids make of it?

Quote:
It is 30 years since the Commodore 64 went on sale to the public.

The machine was hugely successful for its time, helping to encourage personal computing, popularise video games and pioneer homemade computer-created music.

The $595 (399) device took its name from its US maker, Commodore International, and the fact it had 64 kilobytes of RAM memory.

Refugee from Facebook questions the social media life

Quote:
MARFA, Tex. — Not long after Katherine Losse left her Silicon Valley career and moved to this West Texas town for its artsy vibe and crisp desert air, she decided to make friends the old-fashioned way, in person. So she went to her Facebook page and, with a series of keystrokes, shut it off.

The move carried extra import because Losse had been the social network’s 51st employee and rose to become founder Mark Zuckerberg’s personal ghostwriter. But Losse gradually soured on the revolution in human relations she witnessed from within.

The explosion of social media, she believed, left hundreds of millions of users with connections that were more plentiful but also narrower and less satisfying, with intimacy losing out to efficiency. It was time, Losse thought, for people to renegotiate their relationships with technology.

Smartphone apps now playing doctor

Quote:
We don't use our smartphones for talking as much as we once did, but we are and will increasingly use them to detect and monitor health risks, from ear infections to E. coli bacteria in drinking water, industry experts say.

Health app developers initially focused on consumer diet and exercise, said Brian Dolan, editor of Boston-based MobiHealthNews.com, which tracks advances in mobile health and medical technology. "Now we're seeing them look into more serious health conditions where there's a real need for innovation."
