Foetus

Those who curl up in the foetus position are described as tough on the outside but sensitive at heart. They may be shy when they first meet somebody, but soon relax. This is the most common sleeping position, adopted by 41% of the 1,000 people who took part in the survey. More than twice as many women as men tend to adopt this position.

RIAA Wants to Kill Free Wireless internet February 23, 2007

Continuing their non-stop campaign to ruin everything that is good in the world, the RIAA has now set open WiFi hotspots in their sights. They want to make anyone who runs an access point responsible for any activity that passes through it. That means that if you download a pirated song at a Starbucks, the RIAA can come in, guns blazing, and sue the pants off them. Oh yeah, that makes boatloads of sense, doesn’t it?

automatically mounts network volumes based on what network you’re connected to February 22, 2007

Mac OS X only: Freeware application Home and Away automatically mounts network volumes, launches applications, and opens files based on what network you’re connected to.

If you carry your Mac laptop around to a lot of different networks, this tool could come in very handy. To test it out, I set up Home and Away to connect to my Windows-networked music drive – which holds my iTunes music library – when it’s connected to my apartment network, then launch iTunes, and it worked like a charm. There are, of course, quite a few inventive ways you could use Home and Away. For example, you could run it when you start up your computer to have your Mac launch a location-specific batch of applications whenever you’re connected to a particular network. Home and Away is freeware, Mac OS X only.

Google is staffing up its new Manhattan offices with some 500 employees. Why is the Internet giant making the Big Apple its second home? Proximity to Madison Avenue and the media giants is only part of the answer. New York City is emerging — or re-emerging — as a hot tech center.

Windows keeps track of your cell phone minutes February 15, 2007

Windows only: Freeware system tray app WatchMyCell logs into your cell phone account and keeps a watchful eye on how many minutes you’ve used for the month.

Just download and install the program, set it up with your provider (currently supports Cingular, Verizon, T-mobile, Sprint, and Nextel), then define your rules for how soon you’d like to be alerted of your dwindling minutes and what form you’d like that alert to take (email or SMS). This little app should come in handy for anyone who’s stared down the barrel of an unexpectedly large cell phone bill. We’ve seen similar Firefox extensions, but the added alert is what really makes WatchMyCell so useful.
