That’s because scientists have been secretly hoping all along that, when they finally found the Higgs, it would be an interesting particle with unexpected behaviors – even somewhat unruly. A perfectly well-behaved Higgs leaves less room for new, exciting physics – the kind that theorists have been wishing would show up at the LHC.
Most of the BMW complaints have centered on the IDrive, a computer system that controls the car’s navigation, audio and communications.

It will take a few years to remove the smelly stigma associated with diesel vehicles, but we will likely have a lot more of the vehicles on the road by 2010, hopefully many of which powered biodiesel.
“Apart from its humorous value and cleverness, the project is interesting on many levels and layers: For example, not just as a funny artistic hack of Amazon.com and The Pirate Bay, but also as a critique of mainstream media consumer culture creating the great ‘content’

Flywheel is a taxi-hailing app that works with existing taxi companies, and it has long promised to avoid not only the mudslinging and the sabotage that have characterized Uber’s climb to the top of the startup ladder, but also the surge pricing that periodically ups the cost of its rides. A recent pitch from the company’s PR firm described it as “the no-surge, non-asshole alternative to Uber and Lyft.”

Also on hand will be some of the cast of the movies, including David Prowse (Darth Vader), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett). Fair warning – the going rate for an autographed pictures at last year’s event was in the €15-€20 range, but that might be a small price to pay for a signed picture of Paul Blake, aka Greedo, confirming that he did not in fact fire first. I’ve already started indoctrinating my two year old son on – to quote Kevin Smith – “The Holy Trilogy,” so it’s entirely possible I’m not leaving without some R2-D2 swag, too.

The company has published an FAQ for ATRAC users instructing them on how to continue to listen to their music, and it has provided a conversion tool that will cross-encode ATRAC files to either WMA or MP3.

But in fact, the amount of carbonation in a package of Pop Rocks is a lot less than you get in a mouthful of cola. (How Stuff Works has a Pop Rocks page with a link to the patent for “gassified candy.”)
The 3-D printing startup 3DLT offers a marketplace for 3-D authors to exhibit and sell their designs. Unfortunately, some of those designs are not theirs to sell.
According to the environmental statement, the craft to be launched from West Texas includes one module for propulsion and one “capable of carrying three or more space flight participants to space.” The two would be stacked atop one another to form a conical-shaped vehicle about 50 feet tall and 22 feet in diameter at the base.
“In October 2006, Engineer Doe shared the software code and a ‘design document’ explaining his plans with other members of the Street View project. The design document identified “Privacy Considerations” and recommended review by counsel, but that never occurred.
