Recently, 27 June was outed as the launch date

will be available to download on iOS and Android from June 27th!
:)" along with an alleged photograph of BBM on a Samsung
Galaxy S4.
The tweet was later deleted, however and Wired.co.uk spoke to
BlackBerry for more information.

Holy Bible reprinted with images of war, genocide and comedy overlaid Holy Bible reprinted with images of war, genocide and comedy overlaid

What do images of a dismembered head, a naked woman and
concentration camp victims have in common? They each feature in
the
King James Bible
- or at least, a modern
reprinting of it.
London-based artists Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin have
carefully overlaid images from The Archive of Modern
Conflict onto each page of the bible, images they believe are
representative of the horror and madness of global catastrophes we
have become numb to, due to the filtration of those images by
mainstream media. Those themes of hardship and horror are common
occurrences in the bible, hence the pair have used the ancient tome
to point to a cycle of retribution we appear to be living in still,
with a vengeful god today replaced by law and nation.

WiSee uses modified Wi-Fi router to recognise gestures through walls WiSee uses modified Wi-Fi router to recognise gestures through walls

Computer scientists at the University of Washington have
developed a way to use a modified Wi-Fi router to detect
specific gestures - even through walls - without the need for
additional sensors or cameras.
The technology, called WiSee, allows users to control
electronic devices from any room in the home with simple
gestures. According to a study led by assistant professor
Shyam Gollokota, WiSee can identify and classify a set of nine
gestures with an average accuracy of 94 percent.

Intel’s low-power, dual-core Haswell CPUs unveiled Intel’s low-power, dual-core Haswell CPUs unveiled

On 1 June, Intel officially took the wraps off its
first next-generation desktop and laptop CPUs based on the
"Haswell" architecture. Absent from that reveal, however, was any
mention of the low-power laptop CPUs that will carry Intel's
Ultrabook initiative into 2014. Turns out Intel was just saving
those particular announcements for Computex proper. Now, we can
finally talk about the dual-core parts in the Haswell rollout.
A single low-power Core i5 chip is the only desktop part being
announced today. The other 16 CPUs that are being unveiled are all
U, Y, and M-series chips aimed straight at mainstream,
thin-and-light laptops and tablets (as well as the convertible PCs
that Windows 8 has made so common).

Deutsche Bahn will use drones to catch graffitists in the act Deutsche Bahn will use drones to catch graffitists in the act

A German train operator is turning to drones in a bid to stop
graffitists leaving their mark on its trains.
Deutsche Bahn has,
AFP
reports, had problems
with graffit getting onto its trains when they're parked in the
company's depots. The cost of cleaning it up last year reached
€7.6m (£6.5m), so the relatively small investment in testing
quadcopters at a cost of €60,000 (£31,000) each seems like a good
investment.

Anti-cocaine vaccine eats up drug 'like a little Pac-Man' Anti-cocaine vaccine eats up drug 'like a little Pac-Man'

An anti-cocaine vaccine has been used successfully on
non-human primates, bringing it one step closer to approval for use
in human addiction therapy.
The vaccine (dAd5GNE) combines elements of the common cold virus
with the particle GNE, which mimics cocaine. The vaccine works by
preventing the dopamine high associated with taking
cocaine.

After three years of beautiful images, Herschel space telescope powers down After three years of beautiful images, Herschel space telescope powers down

Farewell, then, to Herschel, the European Space Agency's
(ESA) far-infrared space telescope, which has had to shut down
after coming to the end of its three-year mission.
Herschel - or the Herschel Space Observatory, to give it
its full name - was launched in 2009 with a known limit to how
long it could last, determined by the amount of liquid helium it
was carrying in its coolant tanks. Those 2,300 litres have slowly
been evaporating into space, and now that they are gone Herschel's
delicate instruments will no longer remain at the temperature near
to absolute zero that they require. It has stopped communicating
with its operators on the ground.

Chineasy uses illustrations to break down and teach Chinese characters Chineasy uses illustrations to break down and teach Chinese characters

Entrepreneur and venture
capitalist ShaoLan Hsueh has developed a simple
methodology - called Chineasy - to allow non-Chinese readers to
learn written Chinese characters.
Chineasy - which aims to "penetrate the Great Wall of
Chinese Language" - works by taking a few core characters
from the Chinese language and using illustrations and simple
stories to help people memorise their meaning. Once people can
recognise these characters, it is easy to recognise a family of
related characters. For example, the character for the word "tree"
has similar visual characteristics to "woods", "forest", "idiot"
and "almond". Meanwhile the character for the word "fire" is
similar - give or take a few additional pen strokes - or is
visible within the characters that mean "hot", "burning", "stir
fry" and "to

Trojan turns your PC into Bitcoin mining slave Trojan turns your PC into Bitcoin mining slave

Maybe it's a sign of the Bitcoin bubble. Criminals are trying to
take control of PCs and turn them into Bitcoin miners.
According to antivirus seller Kaspersky Lab, there's a new
Trojan - spotted on 4 April and spreading via Skype - that takes
control of infected machines and forces them to do what is known as
Bitcoin mining, a way of earning digital currency.
The Bitcoin digital currency system rewards miners (in bitcoins,
natch) for their number-crunching work, which is essential to
keeping the anonymous Bitcoin currency system working. With the
Trojan, hackers are forcing others' machines to earn them money,
and it can really put a strain on these machines. Victims might
notice that their CPU usage shoots sky high.

Fing-Art Print: forge-proof your Picasso Fing-Art Print: forge-proof your Picasso

Bill Wei thinks it's time artworks had a little more to identify
them than a sticker on the back and a document declaring
provenance. "All that's forgeable," says the conservation
scientist. His solution is Fing-Art Print, a technology that gives
an object a unique fingerprint. The prototype device uses
surface-profiling techniques to measure an artwork's roughness,
down to a thousandth of a millimetre. "Roughness pretty much stays
the same as it ages," Wei explains, making it ideal for identifying
artefacts.
The Fing-Art Print consists of a NanoFocus uSurf confocal
profilometer, which enables non-contact surface analysis, on a
robotic arm, measuring tiny differences in height across the object
to produce a three-dimensional false colour image. But Wei wants to
take the technology beyond t

AgustaWestland unveil world's first electric tilt-rotor aircraft AgustaWestland unveil world's first electric tilt-rotor aircraft

European helicopter maker AgustaWestland has unveiled the
world's first electric tilt-rotor aircraft and says it has already
made several flights.
Like the more famous Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey, the new electric
aircraft can take off and land like a helicopter, but fly like an
airplane. It's called Project Zero, and it follows AgustaWestland's
belief that tilt rotor technology is the best layout for the future
of fast vertical lift aircraft.
"We strongly believe in the tilt rotor concept as the future of
high speed rotorcraft flight," said Daniele Romiti, CEO of
AgustaWestland. "It offers much greater speed and range than
compound helicopter technology."

GeekDad assesses Lego City Undercover GeekDad assesses Lego City Undercover

My kids have always enjoyed the Lego video-games - actually, we
all have in our family. No surprise then that they're looking
forward to the new
Lego City Undercover
game on
the Wii U (and, a little later, on the 3DS).
While the previous Lego games have had a movie franchise tie-in,
what's caught their imagination this time is the real world Lego
cross-over. There are a bunch of Lego kits planned that will
feature characters and scenarios from the game. This High Speed
Chase ( 60007 kit) being the first.
