Robots are used to find survivors in NY

Dozens of tiny Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) robots are being used to search for survivors in the rubble of the World Trade Center buildings in New York.
USAR focuses on locating and extracting people trapped in collapsed or damaged structures. Rescuing can be as dangerous to the workers and the victims as the initial event. Moving through the structure or widening entry points for humans and equipment can cause further collapse, injuring or killing the trapped survivors or rescuers. Gas leaks and explosions are also possible. Rescue dogs can help reduce human risk and can enter smaller voids in the rubble than a human can, but they cannot replace video camera or structural-assessment equipment.

KaZaA Winamp Plug-in 

KaZaA is a media community, where the community members can share their media files with each other. The KaZaA Winamp plug-in works with your Winamp player to help you find MP3 files on KaZaA's peer-to-peer community and play them directly in Winamp.

Share your files with "The Qube"

The Qube is a file sharing system that allows you to share any type of file with anybody on the Qube network. You can also communicate via text messaging and chat with others connected to the same server. You can even copy (rip) CD tracks to MP3s and view and listen to files all right inside the Qube..
