Reeder for Mac [App Of The Day]

Let’s face it: RSS is a terribly nerdy wasteland of .xml feeds and weird formatting. Reeder is the shining hope that it doesn’t have to be that way. Already our favorite RSS app on iOS, it’s finally available for Mac. More »

Scientists produce laser light from human kidney cells, we get in touch with our inner Cyclops

Scientists have just created living laser light out of a human cell and some jellyfish protein, but it’s not quite as terrifying as it sounds. Developed by Malte Gather and Seok Hyun Yun at Massachusetts General Hospital, the new technique revolves around something known as green fluorescent protein (GFP) — a naturally glowing molecule found in jellyfish that can be used to illuminate living material. After genetically engineering a human kidney cell to express this protein, Gather and Yun wedged it between two mirrors in an inch-long cylinder, filled with a GFP solution. Then, they infused the system with blue light, until the cell began to emit its own pulses of bright green laser light. Researchers also noticed that the cell could regenerate any destroyed fluorescent proteins, potentially paving the way for scientists to conduct light-based therapy and medical imaging without an external laser source. Hit the source link for more information, though you’ll need a subscription to Nature Photonics to access the full article.

eBay Settles Lawsuit Over $2.4B GSI Commerce Acquisition, Deal Expected To Close This Week

eBay announced its $2.4 billion acquisition GSI Commerce in March and today the company is one step closer to its acquisition. The two companies have announced that they are settling claims filed in a Delaware state court; and GSI shareholders will be paid a settlement amount equivalent to about $0.33 a share. The acquisition is expected to close this week, on June 17. With more than 180 customers across 14 merchandise categories, GSI has long-term commerce services relationships with a wealth of retailers and brands. eBay says it expects GSI clients to benefit from eBay?s Marketplaces and PayPal services, particularly.

Autodesk 123D solid modeling software hits beta, hobbyists cheer $0.00 pricetag

If you’ve spent any time whatsoever in SketchUp, there’s a better-than-average chance you’ll have a ball within Autodesk 123D. The new Windows-based program — which quietly slid into beta a couple of weeks ago — is a gratis, stripped-down version of Autodesk’s famed Inventor application, but it still offers a plethora of design tools for something that’s being given away free of charge. We’re told that just the basics are here, and sadly, it’s not open source; that said, it does have an option for exporting to STL, and you will find support for assemblies and constraints. Eager to toss something else in your 3D modeling toolkit? Hit the links below to get started, and feel free to check your wallet at the door.

KinectShop concept is ready to televise your shopping revolution (video)

Does anybody actually enjoy the laborious process of trying out clothes? The sheer physical effort, the risk of breaking a sweat… it’s just not for us. We’re much more comfortable with virtual reality fitting rooms, which is where Microsoft’s Kinect motion camera has found yet another raison for its etre. Razorfish, the folks who already impressed us with some neat Kinect hacking, now have a new shopping platform that’s said to actually wrap clothes around your frame and thereby provide a 3D preview of what you and they would look like together. The current iteration only shows some giddy ladies exploring the wide world of handbags, but they do look suitably impressed with the system. There are also sharing options via QR codes and NFC, plus the obligatory social networking tie-ins. Skip after the break to see the KinectShop on video.

LG Optimus 3D listed for June 20 release in UK

Optimus 3D

Amazon UK is currently listing the LG Optimus 3D (SIM-free) for pre-order, with an expected release date of next Monday, June 20. At just a penny less than £600 (~$980), the Optimus 3D certainly isn’t cheap, but if you can stomach spending that much on a smartphone, you’ll walk away with a dual-core device with a 3D display and 3D video recording capabilities. Check out our initial hands-on feature to take a closer look at the phone itself.

Pre-order prices and shipping dates are always subject to change, but with the listed date just seven days away, we’re expecting this one to be right on the money. The June 20 date also fits with release windows from T-Mobile UK and Three, who are expecting to begin selling the Optimus 3D in June and July respectively.

Evernote Web gets a new interface, Facebook sharing, and more

evernote web

Evernote, the popular multi-platform ‘digital memory’ app, has done some serious re-tooling of its Web interface. In addition to a more polished UI that more closely mirrors the look of Evernote on the desktop, the update brings features like notebook stacks and snippet view to the Web.

Auto-saving is now enabled as well, and you can select multiple items by holding down the Cmd or Ctrl key on your Mac or Windows keyboard. If you’ve got items stored in your notebooks that you want to share with friends or co-workers, Evernote has improved that process, too. You can quickly post an item to Facebook, share it via email, or generate a Web sharing link to paste into an IM conversation or status update.

Head over to the Evernote Web login page to try out the new interface.

Verizon teams with Payfone for one-click mobile web purchases

Verizon’s already partnered with AT&T and T-Mobile on the Isis network, but it has fingers in another mobile payment pie — the Wall Street Journal reports that the carrier’s working with Payfone to let you put internet purchases right on your cell phone bill. Mind you, a previous partnership with BilltoMobile already did much the same thing, but Payfone should add more purchase possibilities and generally expand the potential offerings. Yes, perhaps direct carrier billing isn’t quite as exciting as Google Wallet’s brand of full-on NFC, but while you’re waiting for the world to catch up with the latest in payment technology, it’s something.
