BREAKING news from CNN — “Experts: Malicious program targets Macs”

CNN are reporting, having exhausted coverage of anything else newsworthy in the world today, that:

Mac computers are known for their near-immunity to the viruses and other harmful programs that plague PCs. But that may be changing somewhat, according to computer security researchers. It seems that as sleek Mac computers become more popular, they're also more sought-after targets for the authors of harmful programs.

Mac users at large, however, should not be alarmed by the incident, experts said. The program infects only computers whose users downloaded pirated versions of the Mac software iWork.com.

 

Really? this is a lead story? Is Time Warner taking notes from Fox Media? C'mon guys.

Some suggestions:

New York City Subway’s “Jewel In The Crown” — The Defunct City Hall Station

The New York City Subway system officially opened on October 27, 1904 at the City Hall Station. It was the final stop on the downtown Lexington Avenue IRT local #6 train. It is situated under City Hall Park.

It was closed because as the subway became more popular, extra cars had to added but the tight radius of the platform meant there were large gaps between the train and the platform.


Skylight Detail

The skylights are made put of cut amethyst glass. The chandeliers (as seen in top picture) and lights originally featured glass luminaires, but vibrations from the subway and its equipment destroyed them.


Beautiful natural light

The New York City Transit Museum, once or twice a year, runs a special excursion train called “The Jewel In The Crown: Old City Hall Station”. These trips are only available to museum members. The special train stops at the Old City Hall Station.

Google announces ‘Similar Images’ search feature

This seems like a feature Google should have had all along. When browsing images you get the option to select similar images based on results.

 

PuppiesAndFlowers.jpg

I still prefer Flickr, here are some Flickr and non-FlickrTools.

1. Multicolr Search Lab

Select up to 10 colors and get image results that use that palette. Pretty cool.

flickrTool.jpg

We extracted the colours from 3 million “interesting” Flickr images. Using our visual similarity technology you can navigate the collection by colour.

2. CompFight

Unsure how this site does it, but it generates search results twice as fast a search on Flickr itself, even displays the pixel dimensions of the largest version of the image available. I use this site ALL the time.

3. Flickr's slideshow.

Billy Connolly : Banana Feet — Rare 1975 Documentary

I'm very happy that WeegieBurd posted this documentary on youtube. It's a brilliant slice of the 1970's in Ireland, both North and South. 

billyConnollyBananaFeet1.jpg

Billy Connolly was, in the 1970s, a sort of Scottish Lenny Bruce, who, with devastating humour, sliced through the hypocrisies he perceived.

This 1976 documentary follows the singer-comic during his 1975 Irish tour. Made in a cinema verité fashion, the performer appears to be completely unaware of the presence of the camera in his off-stage and backstage moments.

Actual News Headline : Pet dog’s underwear fetish almost proves fatal

A PET dog's underwear fetish almost cost him his life when he swallowed his owner's G-string over the Easter long weekend.

Vets said that elastic on the size 10, lacy, black G-string became wrapped around the intestines of Baxter, a two-year-old cavalier king charles spaniel, The Northern Territory News reports.

Baxter's owner, who was too embarrassed to be named, said she rushed her tiny pooch to Darwin's University Avenue Veterinary Hospital at 9pm on Saturday after she became concerned when the ''usual pig when it comes to food'' was refusing to eat and started vomiting.

An X-ray revealed something was obstructing the 9.7kg spaniel's bowel – it turned out to be a pair of women's knickers.
