Curiosity rover finds evidenceLiquid water lurks just below the surface of Mars on cold winter nights, according to new research. The Mars Curiosity rover has found evidence that when temperatures drop on cold winter nights, trace... amounts of water from the atmosphere can turn to frost, which can then be absorbed into the upper layers of the Martian soil and liquefied. The liquid water evaporates back into the atmosphere after sunrise, when temperatures start to go up again. SEE ALSO: Photos: The search for water on Mars Turning water from a solid (frost) to a liquid requires the presence of a particular type of salt that scientists say could melt the frost, even in very cold temperatures (salt lowers the melting temperature of water, which is why it's put down on icy sidewalks and roads during winter).

Associated Press that Sledge died early Tuesday morning, about an hour after midnight of natural causes in hospice care. A No. 1 hit in 1966, "When a Man Loves a Woman" was Sledge's debut single, an almost unbearably heartfelt ballad with a resonance he never approached again. Few singers could have.

5 Reasons NOT To Buy a 4K UHD TV - Yet

The Huffington Post - 14 Apr 2015 23:39
5 Reasons NOT To Buy a 4K UHDSome of LG's OLED 4K UHDs. Don't get me wrong. I positively drool whenever I see an Ultra High Definition (UHD) so-called 4K TV (technically, "UHD" isn't exactly "4K," but it's close enough; here's an... excellent UHD primer). Over the last few weeks, Samsung, LG and, this week, Vizio, all presented their 2015 UHD wares to the rest of the equally-drooling tech press corps. I'm particular agog over LG's 65-inch EG9600 flagship OLED model -- its shiny stygian blacks enable day-glow-like colors to seemingly bulge from the screen. To battle LG's OLED UHD advantages, Samsung has boosted the colors and black levels on its new JS9500-series S-UHDs using a technology called quantum dot. Instead of boring you with the OLED vs. LCD details here, here's a piece exploring all the technologies UHD TV...

CEO Slashes $1 Million SalaryThree weeks ago, Dan Price took a $930,000 pay cut. Growing income inequality had been on his mind for months. But as he went for a hike with a friend one afternoon and listened to her describe her... struggle with rising rent prices, he realized he had to do something for his own employees. So Price, the founder and CEO of Gravity Payments in Seattle, decided to raise the minimum salary at his 120-person payment processing company to $70,000. At a company where the average pay was $48,000 per year, the move -- which was first reported by The New York Times on Monday -- affected 70 workers, 30 of whom saw their salaries double. Most of the money for these raises will come from cutting Price's salary -- which is now $70,000 per year rather $1 million. The rest will come out of the $2.2 million...

Dish Allows Easier Netflix Viewing

Ubergizmo - 14 Apr 2015 21:12
Dish Allows Easier NetflixDo take note that Netflix was available on Dish set-top boxes not too long ago – in December of last year, in fact, and as usual, the spirit of wanting to make things a whole lot better and more... efficient has led to Dish offering an improved level of integration between its platform as well as the video-streaming service for its subscribers. In other words, Dish subscribers who happen to have a Joey receiver right smack in their homes will be able to begin watching Netflix content – regardless of which room they are in at the moment. For instance, if you were to kick off an episode of House of Cards, the award winning series on your living room’s Hopper DVR, you will then be able to pause it, scoot over to the bedroom, and then resume viewing it from there. It might seem...
