Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Cell Phones, Science,

Cell Phone UserDoes your pinkie or ring finger ever tingle or feel slightly numb? This may mean that you are developing what doctors refer to as cell phone elbow aka cubital tunnel syndrome.

MacBook Liquid Submersion Detection

Spill your morning coffee on your MacBook and then take it in for covered warranty service? Those days are ending; water damage is obviously a violation of the AppleCare warranty, and the new MacBook and computers, introduced last week, include what cellphones have had for years: Liquid Submersion Indicators, which alert technicians to water damage. Located under the keyboard and near the trackpad, the sensors change color when exposed to a liquid. Once these sensors are activated, there is no way to undo the process, so you’re just gonna have to fess up next time, so please - no more Shirley Temples near the hardware, okay?

Ghost Whisperer Affected By Universal Fire

Universal City Fire

UPDATE: The cause was determined to be accidental. The fire was started by workers using a blowtorch.

Despite all the damage from Sunday’s fire at Universal City, everyone agrees the situation could have been a lot worse.

No cause has yet been determined for the blaze that slightly injured nine firefighters and one sheriff’s deputy. It’s estimated the dollar loss could reach into the millions.

In addition to several structures (which included widely-used New York and New England backdrops), approximately 40,000 to 50,000 items in the studio’s video vault were destroyed. Fortunately, stores copies at a another location.

Two locales used for CBS’ were also ruined in the fire. It’s not believed production on the show - which resumes later this month - should be delayed due to yesterday’s event.

Need for Speed Video Teaser Shows Massive Damage

On the heels of EA’s new Madden video comes this brief look at the newest Need for Speed title, which we know next to nothing about - not a title or even the platforms it’ll be released on. The video is entitled “Damage,” and if you take a look at the video, you’ll agree that it’s an appropriate name. One of the features in the new NFS is apparently going to be the ability to rip your car to shreds in an accident, Burnout-style.

Like the Madden video before it, the game certainly looks pretty, but hopefully the game will play as well as the competition. As the video alludes, there apparently will be some sort of announcement on May 31 at the official Need for Speed website, and we’ll get word of whatever that might be to you as soon as it’s made available.
