Microsoft owns Nokia!

Microsoft has completed its purchase of Nokia's mobile phone business for 5.44bn euros ($7.5bn; £4.5bn).
The deal between the two firms should have been completed earlier this year but it was delayed by a hold-up in regulatory approvals.
The sale will see the end of production of mobile phones by Nokia.
"Today we welcome the Nokia devices and services business to our family," said Microsoft chief executive Satya Nadella.
"The mobile capabilities and assets they bring will advance our transformation."
The Finnish company will now focus on networks, mapping services and technology development and licences.

Another look at the US and how they spend their time MEDIA is it!

-mobile is up

3D printing for basic house?
Pinterest adds a search tool upping the game!

Remeber the Commodore Amiga?
And imagine the format no longer exists!
Magnetic imaging tools were used to copy data on the disks so no damage was done to the original floppies. Examination of the copied data revealed several files that had titles such as "campbells.pic", "flower.pic" and "marilyn1.pic" that were reminiscent of Warhol's best-known works.
The recovery project was initially thwarted from viewing the actual images as the data was saved in an obscure format that modern Amiga emulators could not read.


Lowtech food delivery!

Parents need to lead the way and get off their mobile devices if they expect their kids to get off them!

Amazon stocks down!
Amazon (AMZN.O) was the S&P 500's worst performer, down 9.9 percent to $303.83, and other high-flying sectors dropped along with it

And Now Amazon is using a courier!

They found the Atari ET games!

It looks like the legend might be true after all. Microsoft has uncovered intact copies of E.T.for the Atari 2600 at a New Mexico landfill, supporting claims that Atari buried legions of unsold cartridges in the desert after the movie-themed game proved to be a massive failure. With that said, it's not yet clear that this is the treasure trove that Microsoft was hoping to find for its first Xbox-only documentary. The excavation team has only found a few E.T. units as of this writing, and they have company -- there's a shrink-wrapped copy of Centipede in the mix, for one thing. If the team does find many more examples of the extra-terrestrial flop, though, it could finally put a 32-year-old mystery to rest.

3. reading a lot about the ultimate workout BUT they are all different. Is there an ultimate workout? Bo Derek is the DVD I am buy

4. People are saying DO NOT DO THIS thoughts? If you google 'crossfit kettlebell swing,' 'overhead kettlebell swing,' or 'american kettlebell swing,' what you'll find is that most people making one (or more) of the three and a half terrible mistakes.

1.) Hips don't extend all of the way
2.) Knees don't extend
3.) Low back arches

Break the rules of the road? April 20

Is it ever ok to break the rules of the road?


Here is some of what Dubai said.

On life threatening cases. Yosefonly reason to break traffic rules is being irresposible, careless, uncivilized...mohmd Road is a Road be it any day.       John

Sometimes i brake the roles like this message :) .. But i think that we should learn driving roles before learn how to drive. Bisher

Yes James ! If you are rich , have wasta why not?

Ok I came past gharood. Talking about time to break rules. There ware two cars smashed. One almost looks like crushed metal. Interestingly one car stoped 10 meters from the accident a lady standingnout from sunroof and recording. A group of young kids walking about the road as if they are citizen police. Not much action but showing off its ok to break the rules and walk about the bridge. Why ppl think that during an emergancy its ok to break the rules. KC

hen I stick to the Speed limits, even in the Slowest Lane on SZR, other cars flash me and honk at me.

If i do not push in a line, every one else does, so what is the point of keeping to the rules?Rdgs Sunil.

Btw, slowing down (without stoping cokpletely) at a stop sign is called california stop (or something like that). I think thats the more practicle. Rather than stop-Push to lo gear and start over again.
This whole society needs to be educated!! Just have been taken over from the right again in szroad.. Salua

What about lane discipline from drivers hogging the overtaking lanes

Here is the podcast.

Nike to get out of fitness hardware?

Just days after Nike announced the launch of its Fuel Lab location in San Francisco to enhance partnerships with other digital services for athletes, there's a report that it's fired much of the team behind its FuelBand wristwear. CNET reports that, according to a person familiar with the matter, as many as 55 people from its 70-member hardware team are being laid off, and plans for another version of the FuelBand to follow the SE have been shelved. All of this comes just as the wearables market is heating up, with products already arriving from Samsung, LG, Motorola, Pebble and more, while activity tracking integrated with phones is also becoming more popular. At the same time, not all of Nike's tech initiatives have worked out, and Nike+ has largely disappeared from its shoes in the last year.

GetFitRadio April 20

Marcus Smith from Innerfight.com joins me to talk your fitness.

This week we have a new segment, healthy cooking with Holly, very cool.

Go to www.innerfight.com for all the details of the show but give it a listen and share.

Here are the show notes and a few things we didn't get to!

Many shows ago you asked about what apps people use, a shout out should be given to 'my fitness pal' if it was not mentioned already. Its an app to track you food, and a cool feature is if your in the shop and tempted by the tim tams, you can scan the bar code and get all the nutritional facts. You can keep track through the day of you fat, protein and carbs etc.. I have been using it for 6 weeks, the only down side is the looks i get when i instantly log my food into it. Brett Taylor
1. lunchtime workouts, what about the drop of energy because of substituting action for energy?

2. speed walking or jogging is the walking just as good.

3. when we are talking situps or other repetitive exercises is there any golden rule for # of reps?

4. See james wearing an innerfight sweat visor, do you design your own stuff?

5. BMI do we need to log this?

6. weeks ago you spoke about essential travel exercise gear can you refresh us?

7. single leg vs split squats?
