These condoms are thinner than a human hair. A human hair is 0.06 millimeters. These Japanese condoms are 0.01 millimeters. Sagami launched the polyurethane contraceptives in Tokyo for $12. They came in a box of 5 but as expected they have been selling out.
A Sagami researcher said:
Honestly, I don’t how we can make them thinner than this but as long as there is a need for thinner, we will continue researching 0.009 millimeter and 0.008 millimeter thinness.

Jay-Z gave a gift to his fans this week. He ranked his albums in the order he feels they should be in. He also gives his 2 cents as to why they are in that order. I think this only feeds the debate. There is no way that In my Life time V.1 is better than Blueprint 2. One wonders how many classics Biggie would have if he was still around.

Walker died after the red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. A friend was the driver. Roger Rodas was the owner of a car-customization shop Always Evolving. The driver was Officials say speed was a factor in Walker’s accident. Walker died from “combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries,” meaning he survived the initial crash but died after the car was engulfed in flames. Universal encourages fans to donate to Walker’s charity Reach Out Worldwide in lieu of flowers and gifts.

Sony Playstation 4 comes out soon. Some of you are still holding out for the Xbox One but here is what to look forward with the PS4. All PlayStation 4 games will have to be installed not the PS4. So after putting that came in, go get some popcorn. They say that gameplay can proceed during installation but that is not the case for all games. Discs will always be required to play so don’t go thinking you can install the game and hand it to a friend. This time around a subscription is needed for multiplayer.
At this time the PS4 does not support external storage via USB hard drives or memory sticks. What that means is unlike the PS3, you need to manage your drive space if you start to get a lot of games for the PS4. That said you can always swap out the PlayStation 4′s internal 500 GB hard drive for increased storage capacity. At only $400, the PS4 is $100 cheaper than a Xbox One. However, every Xbox One is packaged with the new Kinect. In comparison the PlayStation Camera sold separately for $60. The camera is needed if you want voice control features.
I do not know what Sony was thinking when it opted out of giving the PlayStation 4 DLNA support. I mean Sony is more a content company than Microsoft. Why would you limit your game system from talking to your other products to get content? Sony also got rid of support for dynamic themes and .mp3 playback. That’s right no MP3 for you. Sony quickly pulled a trick out of Microsoft’s playbook and flip flopped to change that. They will be adding back MP3 support in a future update. Until that time your media fix will have to be handled by Sony’s Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited services plus Netflix of course. It may sound like I am knocking the PS4 but I am acutely looking forward to this system. It should be interesting to see what a system focused on just games does in the market and to the industry.
The truth is out there or I wan to believe are staples in the search for life outside of Earth thanks to the X-Files. Molder always wanted to find out what was out there. Looks like the odds were in his favor all along. A new study from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal claims that one in five Sun-like stars has an Earth-size planet in the habitable zone. The closest Earth like planet that can hold life is only 12 light years away. What’s more if the 1 and 5 match is right, that means there are about 20 billion Earth-size planets in the Milky Way.
Geoff Marcy, a Berkeley astronomer and co-author of the research paper said “
Obviously, these findings are pretty exciting for planet hunters. “Earth-sized planets having the temperature of a cup of tea are common around sunlike stars. This represents one great leap toward the possibility of life, including intelligent life, in the universe.”
Before you get all paranoid about the incoming invasion, remember that ”Earth-size” does not mean it’s “Earth-like.”
Lead author of the study Erik Petigura who is a Berkeley grad student said “When you look up at the stars in the night sky, how many of them have a planet like the Earth?” “We’re able to start answering this question.”
The iPad Air is the device that all other tablets will be compared to from here on out. Even Apple’s own iPad line will be put up against this device. It will come down to a question of size and cost. In a nutshell it’s lighter and faster. I have to say I do wish they had added Touch ID. I think that was miss but the way Apple works is they will use that to sell the iPad Air 2. Below is that the interwebs are saying about the new device that comes out tomorrow.
When I first picked up the iPad Air, I noticed how light it was. I mean really light. In reality, Apple shaved about half a pound of weight off the new iPad compared to the previous generations. That may not seem like much, but when the old iPad only weighed approximately 1.5 pounds, knocking off half a pound is significant.
It’s very hard to describe how good the iPad Air feels in your hand without actually picking one up. It’s kind of like the first time you saw a Retina display for the first time—shock.
Despite its petite size and lightweight build, it doesn’t feel at all flimsy. The unibody aluminum chassis is just as solid as on older iPads. The sides have a blunter edge this time around, so you get more of a grip than the gradually sloping edges on previous models; and Apple has added chamfered, diamond-cut edges that form a boundary between the bezel and the rest of the tablet’s body, which gives it a premium look. In our experience, however, the downside to chamfered edges is that they’re often susceptible to dings and scratches.
We coached the iPad Air through some of our favorite benchmarks, along with a fourth-gen iPad running the most recent version of iOS (7.0.3). The results were quite compelling. In Sunspider 1.0.1, the old iPad took 661ms on average to complete the tests, whereas the new Air blasted through in 402ms average. That’s a greater than 50 percent improvement in Web rendering speed. (The iPhone 5S scored 417ms.) Geekbench 2 was similarly improved, 1,797 vs. 2,382 (higher is better here), and on Geekbench 3 the gap widened, 1,429 vs. 2,688. In fact, the iPad Air’s single-core score of 1,475 is higher than the dual-core score of the fourth-generation iPad.
In case you’re wondering, yes, the iPad Air does get quite warm when doing this sort of number crunching. The back of the tablet feels slightly cooler at full-tilt than its finger-toasting predecessor, but there’s still plenty of heat coming off the back, reinforcement that your slinky new tablet is, indeed, working hard.
In my tests, the iPad Air far exceeded Apple’s claim of 10 hours of battery life. For over 12 hours, it played high-definition videos, nonstop, with the screen at 75% brightness, with Wi-Fi on and emails pouring in. That’s the best battery life I’ve ever recorded for any tablet.
Though many of Apple’s tools focus on photos and videos, Apple has not exactly advanced the state of the art in digital imagers. The iPad Air features Apple’s previous generation 5MP iSight camera. This means no panorama photo or slo-mo video options. The FaceTime camera, though, appears to have gotten the same update applied to the iPhone 5C: It has much better low-light performance. In FaceTime calls with my wife, she could clearly see my face, even under dim lighting.
Two Wi-Fi antennas work to deliver up to twice the speed. I downloaded the pilot episode of the “Pretty Little Liars” spinoff “Ravenswood” in less than 20 minutes. It took last fall’s model 39 minutes to do the same.
The Air sports the same screen as the old model, so it’s obvious what Apple shrunk to squeeze it into the narrower case: the borders. As with both variants of the iPad Mini, the bezels along the left- and right-hand sides of the display (when held in portrait orientation) are now slender rails. At first, that made me nervous — I worried that my palms would intrude on the screen real estate, covering vital information and possibly even triggering features which I didn’t intend to trigger. In reality, that wasn’t an issue, in part because iOS is designed to reject such accidental input.
The bezel reduction also has a major side benefit. Depending on the size of your hands, it can be much easier to reach all the keys on the on-screen keyboard as you clutch the Air in portrait mode. I typed quickly and accurately with both thumbs, a little as if it were the world’s largest BlackBerry.
The Smart Case makes the iPad Air feel quite a bit more bulky, in my opinion, and is fairly difficult to get off once its on. On the other hand, it’s definitely more protective than the Smart Case, and it’s still relatively svelte. Apple has also nailed its leather case designs in terms of putting out a product that feels very high quality, and that’s what they’ve done here, too.
