No Cosmos for Kristin Davis

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Movies,

Kristin Davis star Kristin Davis (we know her best as Charlotte York-Goldenblatt) recently sat down with Health magazine to talk Sex, cosmopolitans and her past. What she revealed may seem more than surprising to die-hard Sex fans.

You’re in a fashionable Manhattan club when you notice sitting some stools away. If your first impulse is to tell the barkeep to send a cosmo over her way, resist. In her interview, Davis admitted that she used to suffer from alcoholism - and she never touches the bevy of free cocktails she receives from faithful fans. “I get sent many a cosmo,” Davis admitted. “I never drink them…Why risk it?”

Unlike her happily married character, Davis, 43, is still a single gal with no kids to call her own. She would, however “love to have children.” Davis said she admires , and would consider adoption. But let’s not cash it all in just yet. Kristin also admitted “I would still like to find a man and have a baby with him.” Just remember, guys, cosmos definitely aren’t the way to her heart.

Microsoft’s WorldWide Telescope is introduced

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Editorial, Microsoft, Software, Videos,

We knew that Research had something pretty amazing up its sleeve after talking to a few people at the company, in addition to having dinner with Robert Scoble, who told us that what he saw brought him to tears. As it turns out, it is the WorldWide Telescope that had people in awe. After watching Roy Gould introduce the software in the above video during TED, we have to say, we agree. Think of the WorldWide Telescope as the equivalent to the full-featured version of Google Earth - except that the WorldWide Telescope software is free, and instead of looking at the earth in extreme detail, you get to peruse the cosmos instead. I mean, watch the video to see how truly mind-blowing this technology really is. Look for it to be available for download this Spring for the Windows platform. No word on how beefy a machine you will need to run it as smoothly as it worked in the demo - but here’s hoping that everyone who downloads the WorldWide Telescope will be able to enjoy the same experience seen here.
