Nokia N8 delayed 'for a few weeks to do some final amends'

Sounds like it's not much of a delay -- but be that as it may, if you were hoping to pick up your colorful N8 in the tail end of this month... well, we don't quite know how to say this, but you're going to want to make other plans. Backing up rumors that have been going around the past couple days, locales that had expected to get the N8 in September have now been pushed back to October while Nokia makes "some final amends." On the upside, some rumors had the delay pegged for November, so this doesn't seem to be as bad as it could've been. For what it's worth, Nokia mentioned during Nokia World last week (and again today) that the N8 is seeing strong pre-order demand -- the strongest ever for a Nokia device, allegedly -- so this is likely to bum out a lot of folks, and for a few, it might even be just the impetus they needed to hold out for the upcoming E7. Here's the full statement:
"The amount of preorders has exceeded our expectations and we are working hard to deliver the Nokia N8 to the market. In some markets, we had planned to start delivering the Nokia N8s to our pre-order customers by the end of September. To ensure a great user experience, we have decided to hold the shipments for a few

Pakistan totals 265-7 against England in 4th ODI

Pakistan set England a target of 266 to clinch the one-day international series Monday on a day relations between the two teams threatened to boil over in a tour tainted by fixing allegations.

Ban Pakistan from cricket, says Ian Botham

LONDON: Pakistan should be banned from international cricket until corruption allegations against their cricketers have been fully investigated, England great Sir Ian Botham said on Monday.

World cricket has been rocked by allegations that members of Pakistan's team fixed aspects of last month's fourth Test match against England, which led to the suspensions of Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer.

Further allegations against Pakistan emerged over the

Facebook Is Secretly Building A Phone

Facebook is building a mobile phone, says a source who has knowledge of the project. Or rather, they’re building the software for the phone and working with a third party to actually build the hardware. Which is exactly what Apple and everyone else does, too.
It was a little less than a year ago that we broke the news that Google was working on a phone of its own – which was eventually revealed as the Nexus One. It was about that time, says out source, that Facebook first became concerned about the increasing power of the iPhone and Android platforms. And that awesome Facebook apps for those phones may not be enough to counter a long term competitive threat.
Specifically, Facebook wants to integrate deeply into the contacts list and other core functions of the phone. It can only do that if it controls the operating system.
Two high level Facebook employees – Joe Hewitt and Matthew Papakipos – are said to be secretly working on the project, which is unknown even to most

A $4.4 million pet hotel: By the numbers

A luxury mega-resort in Texas (don't call it a kennel!) is offering Americans unprecedented ways to spoil their furry companions. Here, the stats behind the madness

Fort Worth, TX, is emerging as the new epicenter for dog indulgence. Animal lover Janice Ford Grimes, 57, is about to open the Spa Paws Hotel, a multi-million-dollar pet resort, which will offer both local and visiting hounds a startling range of amenities, from an animal-only wellness center to pet weddings. "There isn't another hotel like this," Grimes tells The Wall Street Journal, carefully avoiding the word "kennel." "It's a hotel like you and I would stay in." While, given the

E-skin: The breakthrough that lets robots 'feel'

A new artificial skin could have profound effects on the way robots sense objects — and maybe even help them wash wineglasses without smashing them

Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley have invented an artificial skin that may change the way robots touch and sense objects. "E-skin," as its inventors call it, could lead to advances in prosthetic limbs — and even raise the odds that robots might excel at housework. (Watch a demonstration.)

Elle's 'fetishizing' Gabourey Sidebe cover

Is it admirable — or just weird — that a top fashion magazine has put an extremely full-figured woman on its cover?

Oscar-wining actress Gabourey Sidibe makes a splash on Elle magazine's 25 anniversary cover.
Oscar-wining actress Gabourey Sidibe makes a splash on Elle magazine's 25 anniversary cover. 
The image: For its 25th anniversary issue, Elle magazine has produced four separate covers, each featuring a 25-year-old female celebrity. Three of the women — Amanda Seyfried, Megan Fox and Lauren Conrad — fit the "wispy and white" stereotype of a fashion-magazine cover girl. The fourth, full-figured African-American actress Gabourey Sidebe, decidedly does not. Is Elle's expectation-bending experiment a success?

Can science make chocolate taste (even) better?

Chocolate isn't an obvious candidate for a food that needs improving. But that hasn't deterred scientists at the candy conglomerate Mars, which recently announced they had nearly completed sequencing the cacao tree's genome. This could mean stronger, more resilient cocoa crops, and — perhaps down the road — better-tasting chocolate. Here's an instant guide to this

Why is America waging war against asteroids...alone?

The "big one" could send humans the way of the dinosaurs, says Joshua Keating in Foreign Policy — so why aren't other countries doing anything about it?

An object big enough to "wipe out a sizable portion" of the planet's population "only hits about twice every million years." The bad news is that nobody, except the United States, is doing anything to protect the world from the "big one." And we're only

Does falling in love mean losing your friends?

British anthropologists say people sacrifice an average of two close friendships when they start a new romance

Falling in love comes at a price — specifically, it can cost you some of your closest friends, according to anthropologists at Britain's Oxford University. On average, people have five close friends they see weekly and rely on in moments of crisis. But when someone starts a new romantic relationship, his or her new partner forces two of those people out of their circle of friends. If that's the

A mother not only gave her 2-year-old daughter pot, but she also recorded the toddler taking a few tokes. 
The video: A Cincinnati, OH, mother could face up to 11 years in jail after police discovered a cell phone video of her 2-year-old daughter smoking what appears to be marijuana. Prosecutors say Jessica Gamble gave the toddler the pot, and videotaped the incident. Someone she showed the clip alerted authorities. The 21-year-old mom now faces a string of charges, including corruption with drugs and childhood endangerment. "It is unbelievable to watch on video a mother teaching her 2-year-old child how to smoke a joint," Hamilton Country Prosecutor Joe Deters tells WLWT news. "There are just

Cellphones Is Facebook working on a phone?

A report from TechCrunch today claims that Facebook may be working on a phone of its own to compete in the ever-warming smartphone race. According to a "source who has knowledge of the project," the social networking site has put two high level employees to the task of creating a smartphone which will allow deep integration with Facebook contacts. Apparently, says the source, Facebook has been concerned that Apple and Google represent some kind of threat as competitors, though there is rather deep Facebook integration in the Android platform, and even the iPhone app allows for
