Don’t think I changed my mind. It was interesting and to some extent true.

Scientists in South Korea have engineered 4 beagles that look like typical beagles by daylight, but they glow red under ultraviolet light, and the dogs’ nails and abdomens, which have thin skins, look red even to the naked eye.

Seoul National University professor Lee Byeong-chun, head of the research team, called them the world’s first transgenic dogs carrying fluorescent genes, an achievement that goes beyond just the glowing novelty.

Scientists in the U.S., Japan and in Europe previously have cloned fluorescent mice and pigs, but this would be the first time dogs with modified genes have been cloned successfully, Lee said.

A South Korean scientist who created glowing cats in 2007 based on a similar cloning technique said that Lee’s puppies are genuine clones, saying he had seen them and had read about them in the journal.

I hope this is not something fake similar to what happened couple of years ago.

Mozilla team has released the 4th beta version for Firefox 3.5 (formerly Firefox 3.1). According the Mozilla developer center, here are the list of features that are new or changed in beta4.

  • Improved tools for controlling your private data, including a Private Browsing Mode.
  • Better performance and stability with the new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine.
  • The ability to provide Location Aware Browsing using web standards for geolocation.
  • Support for native JSON, and web worker threads.
  • Improvements to the Gecko layout engine, including speculative parsing for faster content rendering.
  • Support for new web technologies such as: HTML5 <video> and <audio> elements, downloadable fonts and other new CSS properties, JavaScript query selectors, HTML5 offline data storage for applications, and SVG transforms.

Here is a note about Firefox’s Geolocation feature. According to Mozilla, Geolocation lets websites know where you are in order to bring you more relevant information, or to save you time while searching. For example, if you’re looking for pizza restaurants in your area, a simple search for “pizza” will bring you the answers you need…no further information or extra typing required.

Some modern websites offer services that are richer and easier to use if they know your location (such as online mapping, or searching for specific things in your area). When you visit one of these sites, Firefox will ask you if you want it to provide the site with your current location.

If you choose to allow Geolocation, Firefox first looks for relevant location markers such as location data provided by a GPS device built into or attached to your computer or browsing device, the signal strength of nearby wireless hot spots and/or cell phone towers, and/or your computer or device’s IP address.

So what about Privacy? Here is what Mozilla says: Firefox never shares your location without your direct permission. When you visit a page that requests your information, you’ll get a notification that you can accept or deny before any information is shared.

If you do authorize Geolocation, the following information is sent from Firefox to Google to retrieve your location based on WiFi and/or IP:

  • your IP address
  • information about nearby wireless access points
  • a temporary cookie-like identifier

This information is sent via an encrypted SSL connection to further protect your privacy. Google Location Services sends back to Firefox an estimate of your location which Firefox provides to the requesting web page. Google does not know the URL or domain of the requesting page.

It’s your choice to expose yourself or not.

A disc that can store 500 gigabytes (GB) of data, equivalent to 100 DVDs, has been unveiled by General Electric. The micro-holographic disc is the same size as existing DVD discs. Micro-holographic discs can store more data than DVDs or Blu-ray because they store information on the disc in three dimensions, rather than just pits on the surface of the disc

While the technology is still in the laboratory stage, GE believes it will take off because players can be built which are backwards compatible with existing DVD and Blu-ray technologies.

I think it’ll be few years before the technology really takes off. According to BBC, General Electric will need to work with hardware manufacturers if it is to bring the technology to the consumer market.  The challenge for this area of technology has been to increase the reflectivity of the holograms that are stored on the discs so that players can be used to both read and write to the discs. Plus, the cloud computing technology and online digital distribution might render this unnecessary in the future. We have to wait and watch.
