Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili has a commanding lead in the country's snap election but it is unclear whether he has avoided a presidential run-off, the opposition said there was serious violations and called its supporters to a street protest.

Intel has pulled out of a project to put cheap laptops in the hands of children in the developing world.

Citing "philosophical" differences, Intel has withdrawn its funding and technical help from the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project. OLPC aimed to boost learning in poorer nations via a custom-built laptop intended to cost no more than $100. Intel's withdrawal is a blow to OLPC which has found few nations willing to buy large numbers of laptops.

Microsoft didn’t like the idea and twisted Intel’s …arm?

It is not clear precisely what kind of tests he had, but he had been said to be suffering from exhaustion.

And who’s going to be there?


Authorities in China have banned a film set in a Beijing massage parlor that had already been heavily censored for its sexually explicit content.

A kind of …magic!


26-year-old Britney Spears has been hooked on a lethal cocktail of narcotics - including a drug designed to make racehorses leaner.

I’m sorry, really sorry but I can only laugh with this news!


Happy 2008 everybody
