DARPA'S Pet-Proto Robot navigates Obstacles is a video, showing robot that can "walk" and overcome obstacles. It's a little scary, but all the more fascinating. And if this video is not enough, take a look at yet another project  - four-legged.

Google has lost a prototype phone (Nexus 4). And where else is the bar? See Google's Nexus 4 Prototype Lost and Found in a Bar [PIC]  It was really a loss, or a marketing ploy?

Hardware, unlike the above ones, is a yacht here. It was proposed by the designer, Philippe Starck, but mainly by Steve Jobs. The related video for the article is here -  Yacht Steve Jobs te water in Aalsmeer (yes, sorry, but it's in Dutch).

Conan once again makes fun of Apple, this time to the iPad Mini. And another ad , called "forbidden" (and probably much better not to handle).

"Wearable computing", this is a computer that you "can take the body" (with some exaggeration, of course) for the year 2014 represents a market of up to $ 1.5 billion. At that time we will be able to buy Google Glasses. See Study: Wearable computing market to hit $ 1.5B by 2014


"First Tablet, Mobile Second" is an idea with which I agree:
Google Maps has recently improved, particularly with regard to displaying "natural geography". In order to properly understand the painted version of the maps, better see where the forest or desert is. Details in  Get a better view of natural geography with Google Maps

How a Supreme Court ruling may stop you from reselling just aboutanything is a lot of interesting reading on copyright. That is an issue, especially when things bought, you can sell to anyone else. Some manufacturers obviously want this to change.

Facebook is testing pages that Timeline existing columns appear in single-column format. I would be clapping because two columns constantly cracked and messy contribution is one of the worst ideas FB ever had. See the Facebook Timeline layout tests with single column of posts asks why so many people (voluntarily) depend on Facebook as a communication tool, even though they know that Facebook deletes whatever it wants, and arbitrarily decides what may or may not be featured. See Why Do So Many People Rely On Facebook For Communications, GivenIts Arbitrary Removal Process?

EA (Electronic Arts) is still at a loss. And  Electronic Arts reports $ 711 million in revenue for its Q22013, net loss of $ 381 million Nadja is also quite an interesting graph.

Sony's second financial quarter has the loss of $ 198 million. Compared to the previous quarter, the loss is less($ 312 million). Playstation has a lower income and PS3/PS2 delivered 3.5 million (4.9 million in the same period last year). See Sony posts net loss of $ 198 million for Q2, PlayStation Profitsdecline

Google Wallet will be possible to have your own card. More in  Google said that Google Wallet with augment physical card

Infographics is (at least for me) a fascinating project that shows Lord of the Rings world in numbers and graphs. Perhaps, it is like distribution of population by race and gender .

The Retailers Guide to Social, Local, and Mobile infographics is small, but can fit - resellers.
What (mostly) did not get into the cells and the other events of the past week might be worth your attention. Hand-sorted from hundreds of sources and thousands of read messages, it could attract you somehow, escaping the flood of hundreds of articles and reports that appeared last week. In the vast majority, it occurs continuously throughout the week. If you want to follow the series, READ IT ONCE AGAIN !!
