CERN, LHC Sets New Luminosity World Record

For Charles.

CERN, LHC Sets New Luminosity World Record: "An anonymous reader writes 'Since last night, the Large Hadron Collider is officially the most powerful accelerator in the world.

'Higher intensity means more data, and more data means greater discovery potential,' as CERN Director General Rolf Heuer says.'"

Gmail Now Lets You Make Longer Labels (Without Wasting Screen Space) [In Brief]

Another Gmail bonus. Not that I have super long labels.

Gmail Now Lets You Make Longer Labels (Without Wasting Screen Space) [In Brief]: "

They've also truncated the actual labels themselves in your inbox, so they don't take up too much space if they're long or buried in a long trail of nested folders (mousing over them, however, will show you the full label name or path). It's just a few small changes, but certainly welcome ones for label addicts. [Official Gmail Blog] More »"
