If you thought vinyl was an outdated technology, then this record is practically from the Ice Age. The functional ice record was produced by the Swedish band the Shout Out Louds to promote their single, “Blue Ice.” They sent a kit to ten select individuals along with a set of instructions on how to make the album along with a mold and a bottle of water. Leave it to the Swedes to incorporate ice into their music!

Santa Relocation Project: Father Christmas to Leave North Pole Due to Global Warming

December 23rd, 2012

With the Arctic Ice rapidly melting, Santa Claus is being forced to pick up and move his workshop. Letters addressed to the North Pole will need to be forwarded to his new address and Santa’s workshop is up for sale on Craigslist – or, at least, that’s the premise of the Greenpeace’s Santa Relocation Project, which seeks to draw attention to global warming and the melting Arctic using a playful global campaign.

Most Android Devices Still Use Older Versions

December 4th, 2012
Just over half of Android users are still using the 2-year-old Gingerbread version of Google's mobile operating system, while the second-largest share are using Ice Cream Sandwich, the 2011 penultimate version, according to new stats posted on the Android Developers Blog.

Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.3 and 4.0.4) users comprise 27.5 percent, while the latest system, Jelly Bean, is on just 6.7 percent of devices (5.9 percent on version 4.1 and 0.8 percent on 4.2).

Most Android users, by far, are on devices running Gingerbread, versions 2.3.3 through 2.3.7. A tiny number, 0.2 percent, are running Gingerbread's earlier 2.3-2.3.2 versions.

The stats are based on devices accessing Google's Play Store in the two weeks ending Dec. 3.

Opportunity Knocks

The large number of Gingerbread users means that the bulk of Android users are using older devices and will soon be eligible for upgrades, which presents Google with the challenge of retaining those users.

"There is always opportunity when customers come off of their contracts," Weston Henderek, principal analyst for consumer services at Current Analysis, told us.

"However, Apple and Android are already firmly entrenched. Although it might appear that the Gingerbread users could be up for grabs, it is still unclear whether consumers are really asking for another platform (or two) beyond iOS and Android."

Makers of other major platforms, chiefly Microsoft and Research In Motion, are way behind. November numbers from IDC Research found Android, available via a wide range of manufacturers (though Samsung is the largest single partner) with an impressive 75 percent worldwide share. That represents a record level for a single quarter. Apple followed with 14.9 percent for iOS mobile devices. RIM's BlackBerry OS trailed with 4.3 percent.

Microsoft, whose Windows 8 mobile devices are barely out of the gate and not included in that survey, commands 2 percent of the market with its previous devices.

"Windows...

Researchers Find That Antarctic Ice is Melting Faster Than Previously Expected

While scientists have long agreed that global warming is having an impact on the planet, there hasn’t been any clear agreement as to the extent to which this warming has impacted polar ice melt. But that has changed now due to a recent study released by over 20 polar research teams, which shows that ice in Antarctica and Greenland is melting significantly faster than previously thought.
