What is Symbian OS?
Symbian OS is an open source operating system for mobile phones primarily used on Nokia advanced or data enabled smart phones. Symbian OS runs exclusively on ARM processors and has evolved from Psion's EPOC which was developed as a rudimentary operating system for early electronic organizers. The Psion EPOC OS was refered to EPOC16 beginning in the late 1990's to help distinguish it from the newer 32bit Operating system EPOC32, which eventually became Symbian OS. Psion software created a joint venture with several mobile hardware manufacturers, Ericsson®, Motorola®, and Nokia® called Symbian and eventually took on the name Symbian Software, renaming EPOC32 Symbian OS.

The key advantage of EPOC32 over its 16bit predecessor is the ability to multi-task, perform multiple functions at once. In newer devices, this might mean being able to surf the web using the phone and not lose your content when answering an incoming call.

Many third party manufacturers were able to license the 32bit EPOC OS for their organizers and other mobile data devices. Since the late 1990's,Symbian OS has become one of the most popular mobile device operating systems available...

Webinar
"Short for Web-based seminar, a webinar is a presentation, lecture,
workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the Web."



The quote I have used is from an excellent study into consumer passwords.
Imperva will host a webinar detailing the study's findings.

Cyberchondria

Cyberchondria: Studies of the Escalation of Medical Concerns in Web Search

Ryen White and Eric Horvitz
November 2008

The World Wide Web provides an abundant source of medical information. This information can assist people who are not healthcare professionals to better understand health and disease, and to provide them with feasible explanations for symptoms. However, the Web has the potential to increase the anxieties of people who have little or no medical training, especially when Web search is employed as a diagnostic procedure. We use the term cyberchondria to refer to the unfounded escalation of concerns about common symptomatology, based on the review of search results and literature on the Web. We performed a large-scale, longitudinal, log-based study of how people search for medical information online, supported by a large-scale survey of 515 individuals’ health-related search experiences. We focused on the extent to which common, likely innocuous symptoms can escalate into the review of content on serious, rare conditions that are linked to the common symptoms. Our results show that Web search engines have the potential to escalate medical concerns. We show that escalation is influenced by the amount and distribution of medical content viewed by users, the presence of escalatory terminology in pages visited, and a user’s predisposition to escalate versus to seek more reasonable explanations for ailments. We also demonstrate the persistence of post-session anxiety following escalations and the effect that such anxieties can have on interrupting user’s activities across multiple sessions. Our findings underscore the potential costs and challenges of cyberchondria and suggest actionable design implications that hold opportunity for improving the search and navigation experience for people turning to the Web to interpret common symptoms.

Nerdists?
Not sure? This is where they live! Go on, go have a geekety peek! :wink:


I am Chris Hardwick. You probably recognize me from TV. You don’t realize that’s where you know me from, but it is. You think you went to college with me or I look like your cousin’s friend, but that is not the case. At one time or another you stumbled across me on your moving picture box in such cerebral gems as MTV’s “Singled Out” and Noam Chomsky’s “Shipmates.” I was also in House of 1000 Corpses, which you were afraid to see because horror films make you pee a little. I made an appearance in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, which you may be somewhat reluctant to give me credit for, because I was only in a couple of scenes and I was not a robot.

Recently, I hosted “WIRED Science”, which was amazing, but you didn’t see it because it was on PBS and you’re not a hundred and four. My interest in Sci/Tech began in the mid 90s, when my best friend, Mike Phirman, and I started writing comedy songs about science. I realize that sounds less than hilarious but as Hard ‘n Phirm we did manage to eek out a few chuckles with songs about The Carbon Cycle, Pi, and a series of Country songs themed around science (a rarely covered topic in the genre). If that sounds like a snore to you then perhaps you’ll prefer our half-hour Comedy Central special on iTunes or the soundtrack that we wrote for Rob Zombie’s next movie, The Haunted World of El Superbeasto. If not, we’ll quietly go to hell.

Currently, I host “Web Soup” and review gadgetry for “Attack of the Show,” both on the G4 Nerdwork. I also write for Wired Magazine and provide voices for talking animals on Back at the Barnyard on Nickelodeon. Some people like to angrily tell me that my character, Otis, is a male cow with udders and those simply do not exist in Nature. I remind them that animals don’t talk and scheme, either. Several times a year I will get up with a vocal amplifier and tell jokes to strangers in comedy venues. I invite you to come out and see just such an instance by signing up for my email list.

Thank you for giving this page two minutes of your life that you will never get back.

Dammit! Not the old two-lost-minutes caper! I can live with it! :wink:

The Quantum Dot
May 24, 2010
Scientists have created a transistor in a computer chip that is 10 times smaller than those commonly in use now, marking the start of a new age of super-fast, super-powerful computing.

At the heart of the electronic device is a "quantum dot" (pictured above), which measures just four-billionths of a metre — so small that it contains just seven atoms, compared to the millions that make up a typical laptop chip.

The technical breakthrough is reported today in the journal Nature Nanotechnology.
