BlackBerry opens up BBM to Windows phone users

The Blackberry sign is pictured in WaterlooBlackBerry Ltd said on Thursday its popular messaging system BBM, or BlackBerry Messenger, would now be open to those using the Windows phone platform, a move that potentially makes the messaging service more appealing to its enterprise clients. BlackBerry, which is seeking to reinvent itself as a more software and services driven company as its smartphone market share has dwindled, has been lately touting new BBM features in a bid to make it a more viable messaging tool for clients such as corporations and government agencies that are on the lookout for a secure messaging service. The company, last year, opened the service to phones powered by Google Inc's wildly popular Android operating system and Apple's iOS platform.

"Once Upon A Time" Unveils Its "Frozen" Cast

ABC released the first official photos from Season 4, featuring Frozen ‘s Elsa, Kristoff, and Sven!

ABC

ABC's Once Upon a Time will get Frozen this September when characters inspired by the Oscar-winning Disney film arrive in Storybrooke, and the network has today revealed six new photos from the fourth season premiere, titled "A Tale of Two Sisters."

Anna is played by Fringe alum Georgina Haig, while Kristoff is played by Greek's Scott Michael Foster. (Anna, who is not featured in the images, is played by newcomer Elizabeth Lail.)

While the OUAT creators have been very tight-lipped about how the Frozen foursome (yes, we're counting Sven the reindeer) fit into the ABC drama, a clip from the premiere episode that screened at San Diego Comic-Con featured Elsa telling Anna, "I have a wedding present for you," while standing at their parents' graves.

It looks like a lavish celebration is on the horizon. Although, given that no one has truly received a "Happily Ever After" yet on this show, one never knows...

Ice Cream Genius Makes Treat That Changes Color When You Lick It
The most delicious master's thesis ever

Instagram Photo

The global push for STEM education probably wasn’t for producing this kind of scientific innovation: color changing ice cream.

But that’s where Michael Linares, a Spanish physicist and electrical engineer, has decided to focus his talents by creating an ice cream that changes color when you lick it, according to his local Spanish news site. Called Xamaleón, a play on the Spanish word for chameleon, the ice cream starts at a lavender color before it’s sprayed with what Linares calls a “love elixir.” Once you lick it, it turns magenta.

The dessert technology is patent pending, and details on how the “love elixir” blesses the ice cream with chameleonic powers are secret. (Some reports are saying the mysterious potion indeed has aphrodisiac properties.) Linares has disclosed to Gizmodo that the “love elixir,” originally his master’s thesis, is “entirely made with natural ingredients,” and that he’s also working on two variations: one that changes under UV lights at nightclubs, and another that’ll turn from pink to white all on its own.

The color changing ice cream is currently available at only his ice cream shop in Girona, Spain.
