This is Lesya Toumaniantz from Saransk, Russia. She let her tattoo artist boyfriend Rouslan Toumaniantz ink his name across her face the first time they met in real life after starting a relationship online. Rouslan must really have a thing for face tattoos because he’s the same dude that was accused (and later acquitted) of tattooing 56 stars on that one girl’s face after she allegedly only asked for three. *bashing face on keyboard* fghnbvfghvf hjhyj rty7hhgffg hvnfghfghbnv I just don’t even know anymore. I really did beat my head on the keyboard to type that though.
The pair – who’d met on an online chat room – say they quickly fell ‘head over heels in love’ and soon after met in Moscow, Russia, where they decided to get married.
‘It’s a symbol of our eternal devotion. I’d like him to tattoo every inch of my body,” she said.
The tattoo-mad former art student whose sister is also a tattoo artist added that above her eyebrow he had written All For Love.
‘I know that there are people who are terrified that Lesya has made a rash decision that she’ll regret horribly, but sometimes the best decisions are the ones you make in an instant with your heart rather than the ones long-debated in your mind.
Good call bro. As a matter of fact, ALL my best decisions have been made in an instant with my heart rather than the ones long-debated in my mind. You know why? “Your brain sucks.” It’s pure shit. Hey, at least if these two lovebirds ever break up she won’t have to paint her face to go to an ICP concert.

The launch of Android 4.2 brought a welcome smattering of extra features to the mobile world, but a recently discovered bug omits something slightly important: namely, the month of December. Dive into the People app on any device using the new OS, and the last 31 days of the year will be unavailable for contacts’ anniversaries and similar special occasions. Google is aware of the flaw, although it hasn’t yet said when it will have a fix in place. We’ve reached out to get a more definitive timetable for a solution beyond just what’s implied by the Gregorian calendar. In the meantime, don’t lean too heavily on that smartphone to remember an imminent birthday; people born in December are stiffed out of enough presents as it is.
Americans who likes the Sony Xperia go’s approach to lifeproof smartphone design won’t have to live vicariously through their overseas friends anymore. Keeping up its recent habit of selling unlocked versions of niche devices, Sony is selling the toughened smartphone in the US as the Xperia advance. The 3.5-inch handset won’t initially be a surprise to those who’ve had a peek at an international version, right through to the out-of-the-box Android 2.3 installation — you’ll be sitting in line for a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich or Jelly Bean like everyone else. For most, the advantage will rest in a dust- and water-resistant phone that can wield its 3G on AT&T or Straight Talk while being free to use at least basic GSM calling abroad. Be sure to shop around before committing to an Xperia advance, though. While Newegg’s $ 250 price makes a reasonable case, the $ 300 official cost has our minds wandering to the much more powerful (if more fragile) Nexus 4.
Apple had to tone down the attitude in a re-issued “apology” it published today to its U.K. website after losing an appeal in a patent infringement case against Samsung. A U.K. judge smacked down its previous apology for being “incorrect” and “untrue” on Thursday. Above is the pared-down version that appears in a link at the bottom of the company’s U.K. homepage.
And then, here’s the old version (which you’ll note contains several paragraphs praising Apple’s design aesthetic from the ruling). Basically, it just had too much attitude:
On 9th July 2012 the High Court of Justice of England and Wales ruled that Samsung Electronic(UK) Limited’s Galaxy Tablet Computer, namely the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Tab 8.9 and Tab 7.7 do notinfringe Apple’s registered design No. 0000181607-0001. A copy of the full judgment of the Highcourt is available on the following link www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Patents/2012/1882.html.
In the ruling, the judge made several important points comparing the designs of the Apple and Samsung products:
“The extreme simplicity of the Apple design is striking. Overall it has undecorated flat surfaces with a plate of glass on the front all the way out to a very thin rim and a blank back. There is a crisp edge around the rim and a combination of curves, both at the corners and the sides. The design looks like an object the informed user would want to pick up and hold. It is an understated, smooth and simple product. It is a cool design.”
“The informed user’s overall impression of each of the Samsung Galaxy Tablets is the following. From the front they belong to the family which includes the Apple design; but the Samsung products are very thin, almost insubstantial members of that family with unusual details on the back. They do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design. They are not as cool.”
That Judgment has effect throughout the European Union and was upheld by the Court of Appeal on 18 October 2012. A copy of the Court of Appeal’s judgment is available on the following link www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWCA/Civ/2012/1339.html. There is no injunction in respect of the registered design in force anywhere in Europe.
However, in a case tried in Germany regarding the same patent, the court found that Samsung engaged in unfair competition by copying the iPad design. A U.S. jury also found Samsung guilty of infringing on Apple’s design and utility patents, awarding over one billion U.S. dollars in damages to Apple Inc. So while the U.K. court did not find Samsung guilty of infringement, other courts have recognized that in the course of creating its Galaxy tablet, Samsung willfully copied Apple’s far more popular iPad.
At the time the U.K. judge, Robin Jacob, handed down the order, Bloomberg quoted him as saying, “I’m at a loss that a company such as Apple would do this. That is a plain breach of the order.” He ordered Apple to remove it within 24 hours and replace it with a compliant notice within 48 hours.
Last month, Apple lost an appeal against a ruling in a U.K. High Court, saying that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab did not infringe upon the iPad’s design. The original ruling by Judge Colin Birss said Samsung’s tablets were not cool enough to be confused with Apple’s because they lacked the “extreme simplicity” of the iPad.
In the October ruling, the court said that Apple had to run notices on its U.K. website and in several print media outlets specially saying that Samsung did not infringe upon Apple’s designs. Given that Apple’s iconic founder Steve Jobs famously said he was willing to go “thermonuclear” on rivals like Google (and the handset makers that Android relies upon), it’s understandable why Apple would be reluctant to run such a statement on its own homepage.
Yet having to rescind and then re-issue a statement seems really too silly.Related Posts:
We had a bit of a laugh with Google’s Kevin Bacon calculator. Not everyone needs to tie their searches to the star of Footloose, though, which is partly why Google is pushing out an update to its Knowledge Graph that explains how searches turn up related items. The effort is starting with actors, celebrities and their links to any movies and TV shows they’ve starred in. Looking for Orson Welles and mousing over Rita Hayworth’s portrait reminds us that the two luminaries were married for years, for example. We won’t know when the more intelligent searches will expand, but at least we won’t be quite so confused if the animated Transformers movie appears next to Citizen Kane.

While its high pixel density mobile displays stole much of the attention at CEATEC 2012, Sharp also has tech destined for bigger screens like this “Moth Eye Panel” that Engadget Japanese took a look at during the show. Thanks to nanoscale irregularities on its surface similar to the eye of a moth it claims to give bright colors and high contrast while cutting down glare as seen above (moth eye panel on the left) The technology isn’t in use yet, but Sharp says the film has been produced in 60-, 70- and 80-inch sizes already, so if you thought the company’s extra large and Elite HDTVs couldn’t get any better, next year’s model will probably have at least one way to prove you wrong.
A Holy Grail of Linux gaming has been an Unreal Engine 3 port. Getting one for the OS would unlock a world of games that has been the province of, well, just about any other mainstream platform. Thanks to Google preserving Flash on Linux through Chrome, that dream is alive in at least a rudimentary form. Experimenters at the Phoronix forums have found that Chrome 21 has support for the Stage 3D hardware acceleration needed to drive Epic Games’ Flash conversion of UE3. Tell Chrome to enable support as well as ignore a graphics chip blacklist, and suddenly you’re running Epic Citadel from your Linux install. When we say “running,” however, we’re taking a slight amount of poetic license. Performance isn’t that hot, and certain configurations might not show the medieval architecture in all its glory. We’ve confirmed with Epic that it works, but it’s still firm on the stance that there’s no plans for official UE3 support on Linux “at this time.” It’s still promising enough that maybe, just maybe, gamers can embrace an open-source platform without having to give up the games they love.
This is a gallery of TMNT action figures painted by John Harmon of Mint Condition Customs to look way better than they do when they originally come out of the packaging (currently available on eBay HERE). There are even some comparison shots after the jump so you can appreciate just how much nicer they look now. I actually tried doing something similar with one of those cheap love dolls once but she wound up looking like a clown. Then one of my cats popped her and things got AWKWARD (I had to cut her arms and legs off and dispose of her in pieces so my roommates wouldn’t think I’m a pervert). “You should have garbage-bagged and bricked it in a lake.” Oooooooookay, serial killer.

The guys at iFixit are at it again and just posted their Nexus 7 teardown guide. Overall, iFixit found that the device is rather serviceable and seemingly well designed. Unlike the iPad 2 and new iPad, the Nexus 7 employs clips to hold the whole assembly together. This results in an extra 1mm of thickness, but they allow owners to open the case with just a little prying.
Once inside, the battery can be replaced with ease; it doesn’t even require the removal of any screws. Asus used standard Philips #00 throughout the Nexus 7 which also lends to its serviceability. However, iFixit found that the LCD screen is affixed to the front display assembly. This means that the entire front panel will need to be replaced if something happens to either the bezel or screen.
From my perspective as just an occasional tinkerer, the Nexus 7 seems put together rather nicely. It’s even more impressive given the fact that Google gave just four months to deliver the tablet, although as Sean Hollister previously pointed out, the Nexus 7 is likely a retooled Asus ME370T.
In a way the Nexus 7, arguably the most important Android tablet to date, speaks to the ever-constant Android vs Google debate. The new iPad, and the iPad 2 before, are virtually impossible to service. I previously argued this move was to the benefit of innovation and progress, allowing Apple to churn out newer models quicker rather than dedicating a large support staff to service old ones. That said, it’s a bit telling that the $ 199 Nexus 7 can be completely serviced while the $ 499+ iPad cannot.Related Posts:
Question by : Is there anything equivalent to an iPad but less expensive? Hi. So I know this about computers: Macs are more expensive, but Dell is cheaper, and although it doesn’t have all the quality of a Mac, you could say it is just as good. Is there anything just like an iPad, with very similar (meaning high) quality? Thanks for the help! Samsung Galaxy Tab seems just as expensive.
