23:55 Verizon Begins Home LTE Access, But Without Unlimited DataStarting this week, Verizon Wireless will expand its long-term evolution high-speed data network from mobile users to home-based accounts, and customers can purchase the service from the carrier's stores.
HomeFusion Broadband, available in six markets since March, rolls out nationwide on Thursday and will allow customers to replace a designated server line for Internet access with a device that looks a bit like a kitchen appliance.
One Gadget Connects 24 Devices
The cylinder-shaped antenna, which must be professionally installed, taps into the 4G LTE signal and transmits it to up to 20 wireless devices and up to four wired devices in the home.
Verizon's LTE network is now available in 230 markets covering more than two-thirds of the population in the United States, the carrier boasts.
"With HomeFusion Broadband, customers across the United States, in towns large and small, will have the chance to link devices to the Internet and take advantage of the speed, coverage and connectivity offered by our 4G LTE network." said Tami Erwin, Verizon Wireless vice president and chief marketing officer said in announcing the service.
The carrier is promising customers the same average data speeds that mobile users with 4G devices expect: 5 to 12 megabits per second for downloads and 2 to 5 Mbps for uploads.
Internet addicts may pay a steep price, though. Like mobile, the service does not include an unlimited option. The cost is $60 a month for 10 gigabytes of data, $90 for 20 GB and $120 for 30 GB, with $10 per GB overage. The HomeFusion device costs $199.99, with free installation, and the data allowance is doubled for the first two billing cycles as a promotion.
"HomeFusion is a bit on the pricey side, especially when you compare its data limits to 'all you can eat' cable and DSL services," analyst Charles King of...

23:35 Europe planning Jupiter exploration mission
The European Space Agency is planning to explore Jupiter and its moons by launching a space probe to the solar system's largest planet in 2022, in the hopes of learning more about whether life may exist outside of Earth.
23:34 New Street View Revelations May Spur InvestigationsGoogle may have thought it dodged a bullet recently after the Federal Communications Commission imposed a small fine for impeding investigation into the company's Street View project, then dropped the matter. But new developments indicate the controversy could be coming back.
On Monday, The New York Times published a story identifying the Google engineer who wrote the software that collected private electronic data as the Street View cars were cruising streets around the U.S. and other countries, primarily to take photos for Google Maps. The FCC had noted that it had been unable to continue its investigation in part because the engineer had invoked his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.
The Times reported that the engineer was Marius Milner, who is said to be highly regarded in Wi-Fi networking. The FCC had said it knew the engineer's name from Google, which had identified him to state investigators, but the FCC had chosen to describe him as Engineer Doe.
More important, his explanations in the recently released full FCC report contradicted Google's contention that the data-gathering software was the act of a rogue employee.
The released FCC report said that Milner told at least one supervisor and as many as seven other engineers about his efforts, and that data harvesting without a great deal of regard for privacy was a regular mode of working at Google. He also said that his intentions were outlined in a proposal to his managers.
That revelation has led at least one consumer advocacy group to file a federal Freedom of Information Act request with the FCC, seeking all related documents.
Additionally, new reports on Wednesday indicate that privacy regulators in Great Britain, France, and Germany may reopen or expand their investigations, since this latest bit of information contradicts Google's explanation to them, and suggests there might be wider infringements.

23:24 The zombie-ant fungus is under attack, research revealsA parasite that fights the zombie-ant fungus has yielded some of its secrets to an international research team led by David Hughes of Penn State University. The research reveals, for the first time, how an entire ant colony is able to survive infestations by the zombie-ant fungus, which invades an ant's brain and causes it to march to its death at a mass grave near the ant colony, where the fungus spores erupt out of the ant's head. "In a case where biology is stranger than fiction, the parasite of the zombie-ant fungus is itself a fungus -- a hyperparasitic fungus that specializes in attacking the parasite that turns the ants into zombies," Hughes said. The research will be published in the journal PLoS ONE.

23:03 Nanotech Dental Filling Kills Bacteria, Strengthens TeethYour next filling may do a little more to keep your teeth healthy. Researchers at the University of Maryland have created the first cavity-fillers also kill bacteria and re-grow layers of tooth, the university announced yesterday (May 1). Huakun Xu and his colleagues created a cavity-prepping mouthwash, a filling and a filling cement that include tiny, nano-size particles of silver and calcium that have a diameter roughly 1/1000th as wide as a human hair. The researchers reported on the prepping fluid in the Journal of Dental Research in April. ...

22:54 Your hand in the Large Hadron Collider 2 | Jon Butterworth | Life & Physics
No, really, what would happen? Also, a bunch of "rusty square buildings, made out of sheet metal in the 1950s".
Those Sixty Symbols people have been to CERN asking the big question: "What would happen if you put your hand in the Large Hadron Collider?" Their previous answers featured in Health and Safety in Particle Physics II, as did my quick guess. Here's what they got this time:
They get some pretty credible answers. And I reckon my guess was about right, if you add the word "fatal" in there somewhere.
I really hope this is not a trilogy, where in the final one they actually try it...
Since I come here most weeks, I sometimes forget what an impact coming to CERN can have. Two things impress, in my experience. First of all, above ground it is quite downbeat. Adam expresses it well here.
... check out Mike Paterson's "Stig of the dump" views of our working environment about 2mins in. But then, when you go below ground where the action is, just look at Ed's face:
But from where I am, it's a wooden eco-friendly globe in the middle distance. I wonder how many people think that thing is a nuclear reactor? It's not. It's a big wooden globe. We got it free from the Swiss government, I think.

22:33 A Glimpse of Glasses-Free 3-D
So I was curious but skeptical when MasterImage 3D, whose 3-D offerings include digital 3-D projectors for movie theaters, asked me to check out its take on it. It has built its technology into an Android-running Qualcomm tablet that it first showed off at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February, and it hopes to include the technology in smart phones starting late this year and tablets early next year.

22:25 Jockeying for Genetic Advantage: DNA Analysis to Evaluate ThoroughbredsWhen you buy a racehorse, you pays your money and you takes your chances. Top yearlings at Keeneland’s 2011 Thoroughbred auction, for instance, averaged nearly $350,000 and hadn’t yet raced a step. Odds are that some of them never will. Now, thanks to a biologist, it’s possible to boost the odds of getting a winner with a simple genetic test.
22:25 Why underweight babies become obese: Study says disrupted hypothalamus is to blameA new animal model study has found that in low–birth-weight babies whose growth was restricted in the womb, the level of appetite-producing neuropeptides in the brain's hypothalamus — the central control of the appetite — is higher, resulting in a natural tendency among these children to consume more calories.
22:24 An Ancient Killer Coelacanth From CanadaCoelacanths are iconic fishes, well-known as ‘living fossils.’ A new extinct coelacanth is causing waves in the scientific community because it had a tuna-like forked tail and was probably a fast-moving, shark-like predator. This contrasts with living coelacanths, which are slow-moving fishes with peculiar broad tails bearing 3 lobes.
