Want To Live Rent and Electric Bill Free? <--click for more

If you've just had it with taking the subway, or sitting in an office, or just generally being around other people, you may be in luck. Slovakian firm Nice Architects has built an egg-shaped "Ecocapsule" that runs entirely on solar and wind energy, allowing its dweller(s) to live both literally, and figuratively, off the grid.

The completely self-sustaining portable home contains a 9,744 watt-hour battery, a 750 watt wind turbine, and high-efficiency solar cells that can support you for about a year in pretty much any location in the world, provided there is some sunlight. (It probably wouldn't work in a cave, for instance, should someone desire to live in one.)

The capsule also includes a rainwater collection and filtration system. Inside, there's a kitchenette with running water, a flushable toilet, a shower, a bed, and work space. Nice Architects says the capsule, which is about 4.5 meters (14.7 feet) long and 2.4 meters (7.9 feet) wide, can comfortably fit two people.

Mounting a flat screen TV on the wall can be expensive and time consuming - and makes it very hard to redesign your room.

However, LG believes it has a solution.

The electronics giant has shown off an ultra-thin 'wallpaper TV' less than 1mm thick, and at 1.9kg so light it can be attached to the wall with magnets.

LG Display said the OLED TV is at the moment just a concept.

A new report now states that the Huawei Nexus phone will be built on top of the design of the Mate 8, an upcoming high-end handset expected to be released in the coming months.

Bladeless wind turbines shake to generate electricity <--click for more

Farms dotted with the gigantic spinning blades of wind turbines have become a standard sight on long-distance road trips, but what if there was another way to capture energy from the wind? A startup out of Spain is working on that very idea. The company's called Vortex Bladeless, and its turbines look like stalks of asparagus poking out of the ground.

Instead of using the wind to rotate a blade, the company's pillars shake back and forth from the vortices created by the movement of air around the structure. Engineers look to avoid these forces when designing buildings and other structures, but the Vortex turbine takes advantage of this phenomenon to oscillate in the wind.

NSA phone record collection is excessive <--click for more

The bulk collection of Americans' phone records by the government exceeds what Congress has allowed, a federal appeals court said Thursday as it asked Congress to step in and decide how best to balance national security and privacy interests.

A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan permitted the National Security Agency program to continue temporarily as it exists, but all but pleaded for Congress to better define where the boundaries exist.

Ekobrew Elite Reusable Filter <--click for more

I admit it. I am a coffee fanatic. I have at least two cups a day, and I've just now been trying out the Keurig k-cup coffee maker. It's a great little device. But it has a problem. It's expensive! Those little k-cups cost about 50 cents a piece if you can find a really good deal. Even at that, it costs about a dollar a day to get my fix. Certainly not as bad as stopping off at Starbucks, but it does add up. So, I ventured online and found a great little device on Amazon. It's called the Ekobrew Elite, and it's a reusable filter for your Keurig. Put in the ground beans of your choice and you're good to go. A pound of nice coffee will run about $10, and you can certainly make more than 20 cups of coffee with it. Maybe about 50 or so. That comes to about 20 cents per cup. Less than half the cost of using a new k-cup each time. And you have complete control of your coffee, which is really nice if it doesn't come in k-cups yet.

Playing with Stress Management Balls <--click for more

The best method for managing stress is through the meditative arts. Meditation can lead to a state of ultimate happiness. But in this mad, mad world, many say that they don't have time to meditate. What a strange paradox! Meditation leads you to happiness, yet you can't find a moment to become happy? Don't allow stress to get you down. If you have little time for meditation, consider the use of stress management balls.

Stress management balls are great. They are small, and you can take them almost anywhere. If you are feeling stress, take one in your hands and squeeze. Play with it in style. It will take care of your tensions and concerns. It will give you the diversion you need from the brooding state of your mind. It's better for you to have something else to do instead of the useless thinking that starts increasing your stress and tension levels.
