Last week, the all new Firefox 3 browser was downloaded more than 8 million times in 24 hours. That’s more Firefox downloads than ever had in a single day. At the moment, the people of Guinness review this World Record attempt.

That is crazy! It is a concept from Toyota called the Aygo Crazy. Crazy is powered bt turbocharged 1.8L VVT-i engine with an output of 240 DIH hp and 240 Nm of torque. Crazy is customized with a custom-made body, 17-inch alloys and beefy Goodyear 225/45 rubber.
Crazy weighs 1,050kg and Crazy is capable of 127mph (est), but speed is not its defining quality: this is a machine that exists to be responsive and alive to the driver’s commands.

Today the Firefox crew released the final beta (next release will be the first release candidate) of the upcoming Firefox 3 browser and Percy Cabello over at Mozilla Links has put together a nice 4 page review of the latest release. The Beta 5 contains over 750 (!) fixes since the last version and it looks promising:
What is left? From a user perspective I would say almost nothing besides some retouches here and there to the user interface. Behind the scenes, however, work never ends: performance improvements, web standards compliance and edge cases are still being ironed.

And finally here is the download of Firefox 3, beta 5.
Try one then make yourself one. I imagine this might work with audio books and short stories too.
The Nappak is designed to use in the office for the minimal space; quickly open and store; mobile and easily use. This Nappak sleep bag can be stored in a slim and round trolley, it features can be expanded in a a few minutes, quickly open and stow. Its inside translucent white color creates a relaxing atmosphere, and outside orange color give the people attention. I love this design, because its independent space can be separated from the offcie, give users more relax.

This software helps you add a little more security to your desktop. It does so by detecting one of your bluetooth devices, most likely your mobile phone, and keeping track of its distance. If you move away from your computer and the distance is above a
certain level (no measurement in meters is possible) for a given time, it automatically locks your desktop (or starts any other shell command you want).
Once away your computer awaits its master back…
if you are nearer than a given level for a set time your computer unlocks magically without any interaction (or starts any other shell command you want). Pretty slick.

My favorite browser is Firefox and I really like the latest in the series – Firefox 3. Today Mozilla launched the latest version, beta 3, containing approximately 1300 individual changes from the previous beta. Stability and performance have been enhanced dramatically and I think it looks very promising! The download is around 7MB and Firefox 3 Beta 3 is available in more than 30 languages for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Great stuff.
Firefox 3 Beta 3 Release Notes [mozilla.com]
don’t really have any issues downloading pictures from my digital camera to my computer. Mostly because I just pop out the SD card and insert it into the card reader in my PC. It eliminates the need for any resource-hogging software. The same goes for my camera phone, there’s just the extra step of inserting the microSD card adapter. Apparently some people still think this is an issue, which is one of the reasons why this tiny USB digital camera was created.
I’m going to guess that there’s some artistic reasoning behind this creation as well. You’ll notice that this thing is tiny, which gives no room for any kind of viewfinder or LCD display. You’re kind of in the dark as to whether your picture is going to turn out. I guess I don’t really get it, as I want to make sure that my pictures are actually going be worth looking at when I download them.
I’ve also got a beef with their little diagram. They clearly show a card reader that plugs into a USB port, then they show that you need a USB extension cable. Why do they think you’ll need one for that and not your little camera? Because it makes their little camera look better, that’s why. Yes, I am probably reading into it just a little much.
