Working for a living interferes with blogging - Responsibility is such a cruel mistress.
As you can probably figure out from the intro, I have to give you my sincerest apologies, but work is leaving no time for thoughtful comments or analysis, so here are the links to the raw material that I hoped to turn into interesting posts:
Talk to the machine (Strategy Page)
Listening in with the council's lie detectors (Times Online; hat tip to A.F.)
Music Special: Five great auditory illusions (New Scientist)
Astronomy Technology Brings Nanoparticle Probes Into Sharper Focus (Science Daily)
Wanted: RAM's help in solving crimes (New Scientist) (a YouTube video explaining the attack can be found here)
Snakes Locate Prey Through Vibration Waves (Science Daily)
The 'non-lethal' flashlight (New Scientist Blogs)
Car Camera Recorder Pro: Video of Everything in Your Car's Path (TechnoRide)

Enjoy! I hope to be back with more in-depth blogging soon.
