20:20 100 days and counting to NASA's Curiosity Mars rover landingAt 10:31 p.m. PDT on April 27, (1:31 p.m. EDT), NASA's Mars Science Laboratory, carrying the one-ton Curiosity rover, will be within 100 days from its appointment with the Martian surface. At that moment, the mission has about 119 million miles (191 million kilometers) to go and is closing at a speed of 13,000 mph (21,000 kilometers per hour).

18:56 FTC Hires Outside Attorney to Investigate GoogleGoogle may be looking to beef up its internal legal ranks this spring as the Federal Trade Commission makes moves that signal a coming antitrust lawsuit.
The Federal Trade Commission hired an outside attorney to help it deem whether to file antitrust charges against the search-engine giant. The Wall Street Journal confirmed that the FTC hired Beth Wilkinson, a partner at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP.
Wilkinson is a heavy hitter. Prior to private practice, she was an assistant U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of New York. In 1995, she was a counsel to the Deputy Attorney General, the principal deputy of the Terrorism and Violent Crime Section. After prosecuting the Oklahoma City bombing case against Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, she became the only two-time recipient of the Department of Justice's highest award.
FTC May Sue Google
Although the FTC has not filed any charges against Google, Wilkinson's involvement is notable. The FTC has only turned to outside attorneys twice in the past 10 years. The last time was when the government hired David Boies to work on the Microsoft antitrust suit. Wilkinson has a strong track record. She has brought more than three dozen cases to trial and won them all.
We asked Greg Sterling, a former attorney and principal analyst at Sterling Market Intelligence, his thoughts on the FTC hiring Wilkinson at this stage in the investigation. He told us, "While this move doesn't guarantee the U.S. will bring an antitrust case against Google, it does suggest that possibility is now very real."
Google could not immediately be reached for comment. According to comScore, Google owns about 66 percent of the U.S. search market. That compares with Microsoft Bing's 15 percent and Yahoo's 14 percent. But competitors beyond search engines are complaining to the FTC.
"We believe Google has acted anti-competitively...

18:24 Assembly errors quickly identifiedIf errors creep in during the assembly of components, costly post-processing is often the consequence. Automatic testing is difficult, especially where individual products are concerned. Now there is a new testing system that is flexible and economical, even for smaller production runs. Researchers will be presenting the new technology at the Control trade fair, May 8-11 in Stuttgart.
18:24 Folding light: Wrinkles and twists boost power from solar panelsTaking their cue from the humble leaf, researchers have used microscopic folds on the surface of photovoltaic material to significantly increase the power output of flexible, low-cost solar cells.
18:24 Global prices of pollination-dependent products such as coffee could rise in the long term: studyIn recent years the economic value of pollination-dependent crops has substantially increased around the world. As a team of researchers from the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ), the Technical University of Dresden and the University of Freiburg headed by the UFZ wrote in an article entitled "Spatial and temporal trends of global pollination benefit" in the open-access journal PLoS ONE the value of ecological pollination services was around 200 billion US dollars in 1993 and rose to around 350 billion US dollars in 2009. For the first time, the researchers were also able to show in which regions of the world pollination plays a particularly important role and agriculture is furthermore particularly dependent upon the pollination carried out by animals.

18:24 Two-legged molecule: A small molecule moves independently along a track(Phys.org) -- Within each of the cells in our bodies, and between individual cells, there are permanent transport processes occurring over distances ranging from a few nanometers to several millimeters. One of these cellular cargo carriers works by means of molecular motors that walk along the filaments of the cellular skeleton (cytoskeleton). British researchers have used these as inspiration to develop a molecular track, along which a small molecule can move back and forth like a courier. Their system is described in the journal Angewandte Chemie.
18:12 Dropbox Improvements End a Cloudy WeekWith cloud services moving quickly, veteran service Dropbox has unveiled several updates. The enhancements come on the heels of announcements in recent days about the launch of Google Drive, a new API for Box.com, and a new version of Microsoft's SkyDrive.
Dropbox is adding the ability for its users to share files with even non-Dropboxers, via a link. It is also unveiling Dropbox 1.40 for Windows, Mac, and Linux, which allows files to be batch-transferred.
Additional 3 GB
With 1.40, users can also simply connect a phone, camera, tablets, or SD card, and Dropbox will automatically offer to upload all of the photos and videos to the Dropbox account.
Uploaded images can be seen as thumbnails and displayed by month, in a Dropbox Photos page. These uploading features had previously been available only for Android devices, and are now available for computers.
To encourage usage, Dropbox will increase the user's free storage limit of 2GB by 500MB each time auto-uploading is used, up to an additional 3 GB. The additional storage is only available for camera uploads, but is available permanently.
This total of 5 GB parallels the free storage allowed on the newly announced Google Drive service, as well as the amounts available on Box.com and Sugar Sync. Microsoft's SkyDrive's free limit is now 7 GB, down from the initial 25 GB.
Dropbox's upgrades are the latest volley in the cloud wars, as rival services emerge and up the ante. On Monday, Microsoft announced new options for personal cloud storage on the latest version of its SkyDrive service. The options include new apps for storage and device connection, and the ability to grab a file from a Windows PC via the cloud.
'All About Collaboration'
On Tuesday, Google announced its Google Drive, followed a couple of days later by the release of version 2 of Box.com's enterprise-oriented...
