- PS4 Blu-Ray Will Be 3x Faster Than PS3 - Sony unveiled
PlayStation 4 at an event just over a month ago. Their plans for the
next generation gaming system include incredible graphics and exclusive
content. However, you will have to wait until the Holiday Season 2013
to get your hands on it. In the meantime, Sony's PlayStation 4 spot at
the Game Developers Conference helped provide a better idea of what
will go into the PS4. More specifically, the new system will be
centered around an updated Blu-Ray drive. The new drive will be three times faster
than the drive on Sony's PS3. In addition, Sony is planning to remove
the 100 friend limit in the PlayStation Network. The new limit has not
been announced but Sony is also changing how they will display your
name in PSN. Instead of automatically displaying your real name to your
friends, you will have to decide which of your friends can see your

- This Massive Jellyfish Is Really an Aquatic Spy Robot - This
five-and-a-half-foot robot jellyfish could be the future of Navy
underwater surveillance. Seriously. Maybe. Certainly, if a team of
engineers from Virginia Tech gets its way. Meet the Cyro, an autonomous
robot with eight mechanical legs ringing its metal chassis, designed to
mimic the unique, efficient underwater propulsion of a jellyfish.
- Quantum interaction: 10,000 times faster than light - How fast do quantum interactions happen? Faster
than light, 10,000 times faster. That's
what a team of physicists led by Juan Yin at the University of Science
and Technology of China in Shanghai found in an experiment involving
entangled photons, or photons that remain intimately connected, even
when separated by vast distances.They wanted to see what would happen
if you tried assigning a speed to what Einstein called "spooky action
at a distance."
- U.S. Begins Stealth Bombing Runs Over South Korea - The American

- ANALYSIS: North Korean Photo Reveals 'U.S. Mainland Strike
Plan' - Today North Korea declared itself in a "state of war" with
Korea. Rockets are reportedly on standby to "mercilessly strike"
United States. Pyongyang has progressively cut off various military
hotlines that connect it to the US and Seoul, threatened to close the
Kaesong industrial complex staffed by workers from both Koreas, and
torn up the armistice agreement that ended war between them in 1953.
- Four reasons not to take North Korea's threats of nuclear war
too seriously - North Korean state media says Kim has put nuclear
missiles aimed at the US mainland, as well as Hawaii and Guam, on
standby. But analysts have long said there’s no evidence the country
has missiles with such range, or the ability to mount nuclear warheads
on them. Last year Pyongyang showed off what it claimed were
intercontinental ballistic missiles, but some arms experts who examined the parade footage
think they might have been fakes.
- North Korea's Military Might - North Korea’s leadership
has been using some strong language about willing to start world war 3
and such, but can they. Their military hardware looks impressive if this was
