 29-Jan-15 Terrifying time loop: The man trapped in constant deja vuScientists believe the extraordinary case of a 23-year-old British man with "constant deja vu" may have been triggered by anxiety.

 22-Jan-15 Chocolates Whose Intricate Architecture Is Designed to Tweak Taste BudsThere aren’t many chocolates that are as fun to look at as they are to eat. Then, there aren’t many chocolates made by famous design studios, either. Renowned Japanese design house Nendo created this singular box of goodies for Maison & Objet, a fancy furniture show in Paris. The idea was to experiment with one of the lesser explored aspects of the chocolate experience: texture.
 21-Jan-15 Please don't use these passwords. Sincerely, the InternetYou may have protected your personal data with strong passwords, but when hackers seize control of other computers, the resulting "botnets" can cause plenty of collateral damage.

SplashData has just released its annual list of the worst ones (gleaned from hacked file dumps), and things haven't changed much over last year.
 20-Jan-15 Salman Khan: Let's use video to reinvent educationSalman Khan talks about how and why he created the remarkable Khan Academy, a carefully structured series of educational videos offering complete curricula in math and, now, other subjects.
