Researchers have found a cure for cancer in mice. All of the mice that were treated were cured 100%. The procedure involves a transfer of specific white blood cells from healthy humans to those with cancer. Sometimes cures for mice don’t always transfer over to humans.
Thanks to Pauls Health Blog for researching this new story.

Based on looks alone, this is being called the worst MP3 player ever by some. I think that worst may not be the right word… maybe ugliest, or most hideous is the word they are looking for.
Either way, I can’t imagine someone actually buying this thing. I find it harder to believe that someone thought it would be a good idea to sell it. Oh sure, it looks like a deformed puppy, and you’ll probably save all sorts of dough on pet supplements , but at what cost?
With a headphone jack in the neck, and a USB connector in the rear, when you’re charging it and listening to music at the same time this will certainly look more like a skewered hog than a.. whatever this is supposed to look like.
An MP3 Jammin head-nod goes to Technabob for putting an ear to the ground and finding this gadget first.

While I’m sure it is a perfectly safe television, I can’t help but wonder why someone would make a TV that uses lasers when every laser I’ve ever seen comes with a warning about not pointing it at eyeballs. Oh, I’m sure that there’s some sort of filter or mesh or something that makes this a perfectly safe and vibrant television.
Another interesting thing about this TV is that it will only be produced in gargantuan proportions- 65″ and 73″ are the only sizes that will be available upon release. Just imagine the herculean tv wall mount that will be required to hold these puppies up.
Okay, enough about the possible eye and back injuries that these things could potentially produce, on to the good stuff. The laser TV produces twice the color range as an LCD screen, has a 50,000 hour lifespan, it has 3D viewing capability and the image won’t degrade over time. All of this while producing stunningly clear images and using only a fourth of the juice that an LCD uses.
Thanks to Wired’s Gadget Lab for exposing their eyeballs to this TV first.
