BlueVoice Watch

BlueVoice watch  

I came across this very interesting watch. It’s the BlueVoice bluetooth headset watch. This watch allows you to pair it with any bluetooth capable phone. After pairing with your phone the watch can be used as your bluetooth headset. When you receive a call you can simply detach the face of the watch from the wrist strap and place the headset in your ear. After you end your call simply replace the headset back on the wrist strap to have your watch again. I think this is a great way to store and carry your headset! I would love to try one of these out. It is not quite the most stylish watch but function over form sometimes. I know that I don’t use my bluetooth near as often as I could due to the fact that I don’t want to carry it with me all the time.

Well in what is a very upsetting story for me, the gray wolf is in danger of being hunted in Idaho. The good part of this story is that their numbers have increased enough to get the breed off the endangered species list. The bad is that the state is already in the planning stages of having the wolves hunted! A lot of people have put a lot of work into raising the numbers of these wolves and now they want to hunt the number down?! Why? Reports of livestock and free roaming pets being attacked is the “reason” the state is allowing the hunts.

Earthjustice, which represents 12 local and national environmental groups, plans to sue the federal government next month to continue wolf protections. They hope to get the Gray wolf back on the protected list.

Lets see what we can do to help!

In an update to a previous post, it seems that the details contained in the EULA (End user License Agreement) are a bit demanding of your rights. The EULA is reportedly going to be quickly modified, Adobe states that this was not an intentional clause and that the terms will be rewritten as soon as possible. The part of the EULA that was in question reads:

“Adobe does not claim ownership of Your Content. However, with respect to Your Content that you submit or make available for inclusion on publicly accessible areas of the Services, you grant Adobe a worldwide, royalty-free, nonexclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable license to use, distribute, derive revenue or other remuneration from, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform and publicly display such Content and to incorporate such Content into other Materials or works in any format or medium now known or later developed.”

So you upload and edit an image and Adobe gets to use it anywhere and how they want without paying you a dime? Was this an accident, or was someone hoping that this would go unnoticed for as long as possible? Have you used the free online service? Feel free to comment!

In an unusual and sad story people never cease to amaze me. Wired.com  is reporting a story about some hackers who have hacked into a forum setup for people who suffer from epilepsy to seek more info and support. The hackers attacked the forum by applying flashing animations to the site to induce migraine headaches and seizures in some users. I just can’t see where people can get such ideas! Why are some people just determined to hurt other human beings? Aren’t we here to love one another? What would said hackers get out of such a hateful crime? Sound off in the comments.
