McLaren P1


McLaren P1, a Le Mans racecar for the street, edges into the spotlight


chnically, the McLaren P1 unveiled at the Paris Motor Show Thursday is just a tease of a tease. It's billed as a design prototype, the final version of which won't be seen for several months. And McLaren held back many key details about the car, such as how much power it has to offer, vowing to reveal that early next year. What we did learn was that McLaren has put its typical obsessive compulsion of racecar engineering toward building a street car that can race any other at Le Mans and win.
As the preview pictures suggested, the P1 was designed as a spiritual successor to the McLaren F1 supercar of the '90s, down to the "snorkel" in the roof that helps cool the engine. It's part of a concerto of scoops, strakes and vents styled by the same engineers who handle aerodynamics for the McLaren Formula 1 team.
The result isn't just about making the car go fast, but keeping it on the track; thanks to a massive rear wing and two flaps that pop from the body, the car can generate an extra 1,322 lbs. of downforce at racing speeds -- which McLaren managing director Antony Sheriff compared to having a young elephant sit on the car.
Everything about the car's exterior is meant to shuttle air around it at speed, and McLaren says its spared no expense in the P1's construction; it's made mostly of carbon fiber, but there are more exotic materials mixed in, like the heat shield for the exhaust that's coated in gold leaf. To help stop the car, the wing can pivot down and act like an air brake -- not that the car will need them if it keeps the brake calipers large enough to fit across the tires of some small cars.
McLaren says the rest of the details about the P1 will arrive at the Geneva Auto Show, with production beginning late next year as a commemoration of McLaren's 50th anniversary.

JFK's Alleged Mistresses




Judith Campbell Exner

In a 1988 interview with People magazine, Judith Exner (nee Campbell) opened up about the affair she claimed to have had with Kennedy.
Though released documents would later confirm phone calls with the president and White House visits, aides close to Kennedy publicly rebuked the allegations, including top aide Dave Powers."The only Campbell I know is chunky
Exner, who also claimed to have had relationships with Frank Sinatra and Chicago mob boss Sam Giancana, wrote about her relationship with JFKin her 1977 autobiography. vegetable soup," Powers said in 1991.






Mary Pinchot Meyer

Kennedy was also alleged to have had an affair with Mary Pinchot Meyer, a well-knownWashington, DC artist and C.I.A wife. Less than a year after President Kennedy's assassination, Meyer was shot and killed near her Georgetown home.
In 1998, journalist Nina Burleigh chronicled the affair and the circumstances surrounding Meyer's death in her book, "A Very Private Woman: The Life and Unsolved Murder of Presidential Mistress Mary Meyer."




Marilyn Monroe

Perhaps the most famous of JFK's alleged mistresses, Marilyn Monroe met the president in February 1962, when British actor Peter Lawford -- JFK's brother-in-law -- invited the star to adinner party in honor of the president.
Lawford was also responsible for organizing the 1962 Madison Square Garden fundraiser for JFK, where Monroe gave her iconic performance of "Happy Birthday, Mr. President." The sultry performance fueled rumors of an affair between the movie star and the president that still live on today.



Fiddle and Faddle

In 1997's "The Dark Side of Camelot," investigative reporter Seymour Hersh claimed Kennedy had a number of sexual encounters with two young staff aides, known around the White House as Fiddle and Faddle. According to Hersh, one poolside dalliance was cut short when a Secret Service man alerted the president that Jackie Kennedy was planning on taking a swim. "You could see one big pair of footprints and two smaller pair of wet footprints leading to the Oval Office,'' a Secret Service man told Hersh.
In his Newsweek review of the book, journalistEvan Thomas reported that JFK's affair with Fiddle and Faddle had surfaced in the news before during 1975 congressional hearings on the abuse of executive power.







Gunilla Von Post

Kennedy's Swedish fling Gunilla Von Post made headlines last March when she auctioned off love letters the former president had written to her, just before he married Jackie.

The love letters continued even after he was married: On June 28, 1954, a little less than a year after marrying Jackie, Kennedy wrote to Von Post," I might get a boat and sail around the Mediterranean for two weeks -- with you as crew." Von Post also claimed she spent one passionate week with Kennedy in August 1955.

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean vs. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

2012 is an year for the best of Operating Systems to hit the international markets. To start with, 2012 gives birth to OS X Mountain Lion, iOS 6, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Windows 8 and other minor updates introduced in between. Well, some of them have already been launched, and some of them will be seen coming in the next few months. Talking about Android particularly, the year 2012 has been fairly good as Google unveiled its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system for its Android line of smartphones in its I/O Event ’2012. Recently, we got our hands on 2-of the all time best Android OS. On one hand we have the good old Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and on the other hand we have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, both of them running on our favorite Galaxy Nexus smartphone. We chose this device because it is the most compatible, and the first device to get Android updates in the recent months.

Body Odor


Surprising Causes of Body Odor

Danielle Kosecki and Lauren Gelman


You know you're slightly pungent after a hard Spinning class or garlicky dinner.
But it turns out that some less expected factors--like how quickly you get dressed in the morning, the amount of carbs you eat, or whether you snore--can also affect your BO, breath, gassiness, and more. Here's how to fix it,fast.

1. You Don't Towel Off After Showering
A speedy postshower rubdown may end up causing a problem later on.
That's because moisture can get trapped between folds of skin, like below your breasts, under your love handles, or even between your toes, says Marina Peredo, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in private practice in Smithtown, NY. "There's no access to air there, and it's easier for bacteria and fungi to multiply and mix with sweat, causing odor and irritation," she says.
Fix it: Peredo recommends this trick to her patients: "After you dry off, set a blow-dryer to cool and wave it over your belly, groin, feet--anywhere that gets uncomfortably sweaty." You can also sprinkle an absorbent powder with antifungal properties onto your skin or in your shoes. Try Zeabsorb-AF, available at drugstores.

Transferring Data from Android to Iphone

How to Make the Switch from Android to iOS

Android is a fine OS, but the lure of a new iPhone may be too much to resist. If you're going to make the switch, you won't want to leave any scrap of your precious mobile identity in Android's cold robotic embrace. Here's how to pack up everything you'll need to bring to your new life in Apple's walled garden.

Contacts and Calendars

There are two ways to get your contacts and calendar dates from Android onto iOS. The exact method depends on how you store the info on an Android phone.

If your local data is synchronized online with a Google account:

  • 1. On your iPhone select Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  • 2. Set up a new "Microsoft Exchange" account (yes, even if you're trying to import from Gmail).
  • 3. Input your email address and login info. Enter a domain if you have one for an actual ME server; Gmail users can leave it blank.
  • 4. Select "Server," then either input the ME server address or "m.google.com" for Gmail.
  • 5. On the final screen, select what you want to import—Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and/or Reminders—then hit Accept.

Apple EarPods


Apple EarPods review (with Remote and Mic, White)


The good: The Apple EarPods offer mostly impressive sound, with good detail and better bass than Apple's previous headphones. They're also lightweight, with a comfortable fit, and have an integrated inline remote and microphone for making calls and controlling your music playback.
The bad: Some people may find the EarPods don't fit securely in their ears, and these earbuds also let in a lot of sound and leak a little sound, too.
The bottom line: Apple's EarPods offer much-improved sound over the previous standard-issue earbuds, but they won't fit all ears equally well -- and that fit will determine whether you think they're great or just so-so.

Q & A for iphone 5


Apple's iPhone 5: Everything you need to know

Apple's next iPhone.

(Credit: James Martin/CNET)
Apple's new iPhone is very nearly here, and even with a nearly two-hour keynote out of the way, and a Web site full of specifications, there are plenty of questions that need answering.

This is a living document and is likely to be updated through next week and beyond. If we missed any big questions, please drop them in the comments and we'll do our best to get them answered.
What's different about the iPhone 5?
On the outside, the iPhone 5's main difference is its taller, thinner design. The display now measures 4 inches diagonally (up from 3.5 inches), which gives you an extra row of icons and more space for browsing, apps, and movies. Inside there's a faster A6 chip, camera improvements, and an extra microphone. You can read all about it in our iPhone 5 hands-on.

What about that new dock connector?
What Apple calls Lightning is a new proprietary connector that's 80 percent smaller than the old 30-pin connectors. Its main feature: there's no top or bottom, so you can plug it in either way. The older plugs needed to be oriented correctly.
Of course, this change means your old cables and things like docks and third-party audio systems won't work with your new phone (yeah, that's annoying). To get around that, Apple's got an adapter that you'll have to buy (naturally), and it ain't cheap. It's $29 per adapter. Alternatively, Apple will sell a Lightning-to-USB cable for $19 and a Lightning-to-30-pin cable for $39. Expect cheaper third-party adapters to surface in the future, but for now your options are very limited.
The glass on the back is gone?
Yes and no. The back of the new device is mainly metal, though there are glass windows on the top and bottom of the phone to let the various antennas communicate. Apple's done something similar on past versions of the iPod Touch, and even the iPad with 3G.
Does this mean it will be more durable, or less prone to breaking when dropped? 
That remains to be seen.

Will the battery life change?
And the SIM is even smaller? 

Indeed. The iPhone 4 brought us the smaller micro SIM card (first seen in the original iPad), and now we're getting an even smaller nano SIM. Unfortunately, larger SIMs won't work in the iPhone 5 even if you try to shave them down. The newer spec isn't just smaller in shape, it's thinner too.
There's no change in battery life between last year's model and this year's mode when it comes to talk time. Like the iPhone 4S, the iPhone 5 is rated for 8 hours of talking over 3G.
The iPhone 5 has an edge on battery life when it comes to other features though. The iPhone 5 gets 8 hours of Web browsing over LTE, up from the 6 hours the 4S gets over 3G. When on Wi-Fi, the iPhone 5 also gets 10 hours of browsing on Wi-Fi, up an hour from the iPhone 4S' 9 hours.
Standby time has improved to 225 hours, according to Apple, up from the iPhone 4S' 200 hours. Both are significantly shorter than the 300 hours the iPhone 4 is rated for under Apple's testing standards.

When will it be available and which carriers will get it first?
The iPhone 5 goes on sale September 21 at 8 a.m. Pacific Time at Apple's retail stores. Major U.S. carriers like AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint are also selling the device in their retail stores on September 21. So T-Mobile is left out of the loop again.
Will smaller carriers like U.S. Cellular or MetroPCS get it?
U.S. Cellular and MetroPCS have not announced any plans to carry the device yet.
However C-Spire, GCI, Appalachian Wireless, and Cricket will all get the device on September 28. Cricket notes that it will be available only in "select" markets.

How much will it cost and what sizes and colors will be available?
Just like the iPhone 4S, the iPhone starts at $199 for the 16GB model, then goes up to $299 for the 32GB model, and tops out at $399 for the 64GB flavor. All of those are with a two-year contract from the carrier.
Colorwise, there's still just black and white. Gone from the new model is a single-colored glass back. Instead, you get colored aluminum, which sits between two small panes of colored glass.
Will carriers require a specific plan for the iPhone 5?
No. Like with any smartphone, though, you'll have to select both a voice and a data plan. Keep in mind that AT&T and Verizon both have tiered-data plans, so your usage will cap out at a certain point (the limits vary, but as a general rule the more data, the more expensive the plan). Sprint, however, is sticking to its unlimited plans for the iPhone 5. That makes it the only major carrier to have that option. Cricket is still finalizing its iPhone plans. We'll know more before the September 28 release.
If you're planning to use FaceTime over the cellular network (that's a feature even iPhone 4S users will get with iOS 6), your options will vary by carrier. AT&T customers will need Mobile Share plans to use the feature. Verizon and Sprint, on the other hand, will make no restrictions. 
I bought an iPhone 4S. Will I be able to upgrade at the subsidized price?
If you quite literally just bought an iPhone 4S, there are options that let you return the phone and pick up the newer model when it's out next week. In Apple's case, there's a 30-day return policy. However, you need to work out the contract part with your carrier, meaning that if you just signed up for a new two-year contract to get the phone, you'll need to call them up and try and broker an iPhone 5 purchase without losing your number if you've ported it from another carrier.
Each carrier has differing return policies. For AT&T, it's 30 days plus a $35 restocking fee. Sprint and Verizon both have 14-day return windows. Sprint will refund you your activation fee if you've purchased the phone within the last three days, otherwise you'll have to eat that cost. Verizon, meanwhile, charges a $35 restocking fee.
For non-Apple or noncarrier stores: Target has a 90-day return policy, Best Buy is 30 days, and RadioShack is 14 days.
If you bought an iPhone 4S when it came out last October (or any other handset in the last year), your upgrade options will depend on your account status. Carriers limit how many times per year you qualify for a subsidy, even if you agree to extend your contract. So it's best to check with your carrier individually. If you purchased an iPhone 4 when it came out in June, 2010, then you should be able to upgrade and get the subsidy without a problem. You can check your status with all three U.S. carriers who carry the iPhone by clicking here.
What do I need to know about LTE? How do I know if I get it in my area?
LTE is a 4G technology that carriers started pushing out in the United States over the last couple of years. As you might expect, it's faster than 3G, with exact speeds depending on your carrier. The result for you, though, will be faster downloads and uploads, faster streaming, and faster Web browsing.

To confirm whether you have LTE in your area, you'll have to check with your carrier. The color-coded maps you find online or at the store are a start, but there's no substitute for real-world testing. If you know someone with an LTE phone (it can be any model), ask to borrow it and see how LTE reception is at home, at your workplace, and in between. If LTE is really important to you, you should absolutely test it before buying the iPhone 5. There's also an issue with LTE roaming overseas, but we'll get to that in a specific question below.
The AT&T and Verizon LTE networks are pretty widespread, with coverage touching the major urban and suburban areas. For the moment, though, Sprint is at a disadvantage since its LTE network covers only 19 cities. It's growing, but Sprint will play catch-up for a while.
It's also worth noting that up until now Apple and the carriers have played fast and loose with the definition of 4G. If you remember, AT&T iPhone 4S owners suddenly saw a 4G icon on their phones when they upgraded to iOS 5.1. That was because AT&T was calling its HSPA+ network 4G even though there was disagreement about whether the technology really qualified.
I don't get LTE coverage where I live. Will the phone still work?
Yes, the phone defaults down to a 3G connection, just like it goes back down to EDGE when there's no 3G available.
Will I be able to transfer an iPhone 5 between different carrier networks in the United States, like T-Mobile?
Any iPhone you buy from a carrier will be locked to that specific network, which makes interoperability a no go. But for the most part, even unlocked phones won't be transferable between carriers. Though the Verizon and Sprint iPhone 5s use the same CDMA bands, transferring a phone between them is a tedious process, if you can do it all. Not only do you have to unlock the phone (no easy feat), but the other carrier would have to agree to activate it on its network. That's a long shot.

If you were able to unlock an AT&T iPhone 5, you could use it on T-Mobile (provided, of course, that you had the appropriate SIM card), but only on the carrier's 2G voice and data network. T-Mobile has yet to deploy an LTE network and the iPhone 5 doesn't support T-Mobile's unique brand of 3G.

Will I be able to use the iPhone 5 overseas?
Yes, though there are a couple of caveats. With the iPhone 5, Apple is doing away with the dual-mode GSM/CDMA support that we saw in all versions of the iPhone 4S. Instead, it's selling three distinct iPhone 5 versions: one CDMA-based model and two GSM-based models with slightly different LTE bands. Having separate versions is another factor that makes carrier interoperability difficult. On the other hand, losing the CDMA support on AT&T phones is irrelevant since AT&T customers have no use for it anyway.
To globe-trotters, though, things don't really change. AT&T's GSM model will work abroad (GSM is the dominant cellular technology worldwide), but so will the Sprint and Verizon models. It's in the fine print on Apple's site, but the CDMA iPhone 5 will support quad-band GSM/EDGE (2G) and UMTS/HSPA (3G) networks. As with the iPhone 4S, Verizon and Sprint customers won't be able to connect to GSM networks in the United States, but they will be able to connect to them when overseas. So, yes, the iPhone 5 will be a mostly global phone no matter which version you have.
Just note that all carrier versions of the iPhone 5 will come locked to specific overseas roaming partners. Verizon says it will unlock global SIMs for customers who have been with Verizon Wireless for 60 days and are in good financial standing (their bill is paid). Sprint will unlock the SIM if you've been a customer for 90 days. We're still waiting on an answer from AT&T.
But what about global LTE roaming?
As of now, none of the carriers is offering LTE roaming outside the United States. And this is where it gets complicated. Though the CDMA iPhone supports five LTE bands, AT&T's iPhone 5 supports only two. We're not sure why. That won't make a difference when you're home, but that means the AT&T iPhone 5's global LTE coverage will be less extensive, if we ever get it.
I don't want to sign a carrier contract Will Apple sell unlocked iPhones?
Specifics were scant at first, but Apple updated its iPhone comparison tool with the following information shortly before preorders started:
For those who are not qualified customers, are not eligible for an early upgrade, are purchasing an unlocked iPhone (for supported GSM wireless service provider networks only), or wish to buy an iPhone as a gift, see your carrier, an Apple Retail Store Specialist, the Apple Online Store, or an Apple Authorized Reseller for pricing. In CA and RI, sales tax is collected on the unbundled price of iPhone.
The unsubsidized price starts at $649 for the 16GB model, $749 for the 32GB model, and $849 for the 64GB model. Yet, we expect that Apple won't offer the unlocked models right away. For instance, the unlocked iPhone 4S didn't go on sale last year until November 11 -- almost a full month after the carrier-subsidized versions.

Currently, the CDMA iPhones don't run simultaneous voice and data. Will that be the same with LTE?
Thanks for opening that can of worms. Current Android LTE phones on Sprint and Verizon offer simultaneous voice and data as long as you're connected to an LTE signal (the same is true on AT&T LTE phones). Sounds great, right? Well, not so fast.
In theory that capability should extend to an LTE iPhone 5, and AT&T will let you browse while calling as much as you like.  Verizon's statement was different, but equally disappointing. "The iPhone 5 was designed to allow customers to place a voice call on the Verizon Wireless network, while simultaneously allowing customers access to the Internet over Wi-Fi," the company told us. When we inquired as to the reason for the restriction, a Verizon spokeswoman told us to contact Apple.
According to the New York Times, though, Apple declined to add a third antenna to the CDMA iPhones that would have enabled the simultaneous voice and data transmission. 
When can I order it?
Preorders for the iPhone 5 begin September 14 just after 12 a.m. Pacific or 3 a.m. Eastern on Apple's site. U.S. carriers like AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint are all putting the device on sale then too.
Based on years past, you'll want to stay up to nab one in time for release day delivery. Last year and the year before, initial launch day supplies ran out in less than a day.
