Halo Master Chief armour offered on eBay

Imagine how impressed your friends would be when you rock up to a fancy dress party dressed just like the Master Chief Petty Officer John-117, in a Spartan combat suit.

This dream can become a reality if you can afford to part with at least 850 of your hard-earned – plus £50 for postage within the UK.

Check out this listing on eBay:

“This auction is for an adult Halo costume armor kit. Made from fibreglass. £850. Parts also available separately. All individual parts are for sale, prices are listed above. The only discount I am offering is for the complete kit. If you don’t want a complete kit and just a few parts, please use the price guide above. The suit can be modified to fit a person ranging from 5′ 4 – 5′ 8. For those who are 5′ 8 + the suite will not need modification. The armor parts that you will receive are unpainted, and the flash removed. The armor will require some sanding (keying) before painting.”

We’ve seen Imperial Stormtrooper armour available on eBay since the beginning of time, but a complete Spartan combat environment suit is new to us here at Register Hardware. And if we’d won any of the Euro Millions lottery draw last week, we’d have that bad boy right here in the office.

Facebook: Kindler, Gentler Spying Now In Place

Facebook has gotten all the bad publicity anybody could ever want over their intrusive “Beacon”  marketing/advertising/information gathering widget. On top of everything else, researchers have discovered that despite Facebook’s modification of their permission settings, Facebook is still collecting information about all your  purchases at retailers participating in the program, even if you are not logged on to Facebook.

“When a Facebook user takes a Beacon-enabled action on a participating site, information is sent to Facebook in order for Facebook to operate Beacon technologically. If a Facebook user clicks “No, thanks” on the partner site notification, Facebook does not use the data and deletes it from its servers. Separately, before Facebook can determine whether the user is logged in, some data may be transferred from the participating site to Facebook. In those cases, Facebook does not associate the information with any individual user account, and deletes the data as well.”

[Computer Associates Research engineer]Googins reiterates that Facebook’s statement contradicts the earlier communications of its privacy department. While he allows that from a technical standpoint, some data exchange is to determine whether or not the user is logged in to Facebook, the site could retain the same utility while collecting only a fraction of the information that is currently being sent.

Facebook is caught in a bizarre world of their own making; a utility for splashing all sorts of information about yourself onto the Internet, used by people who are extremely sensitive about privacy. Until Facebook allows users to opt out of the program entirely, people’s suspicions about what is being done with their personal information will continue — and will be entirely warranted.

The Universe’s Secrets Hidden in Paradoxes

One of the most troubling paradoxes in the world of quantum physics is represented in the particle-wave duality, which implies that subatomic particles, or particles close to the quantum levels, exist in two different states at the same time – particle and wave.

Traditional particle-wave duality experiments, study the behavior or light aimed at solid plates, which have two parallel slits cut into the plate. As light or electrons are fired at the plate, they have only two possible choices, either go through the slit on the left, or the one on the right. Subatomic particles break this rule, by going through both slits at the same
time.

Imagine a tennis ball thrown at a wall that has two separate windows. Then imagine the same ball passing through both windows at the same time. This is the paradox which the physicists are fighting with for over a century, you can’t have a single object in two places at once.

The weirdest thing of the particle duality is that it depends on the observer, and how much attention he/she will give to a certain event. If the observer concentrates on the slits, to detect through which one of them the particle will pass, it will observe that the particle will only pass through one of them, thus behaving like a particle. If it will concentrate on the effect produced after the particle has passed through the solid plate, it will discover that the interactions show that the particle has passed through both the slits at the same time, behaving like a wave.
