IT Sneak: New website TextMeOuttaHere.co.uk will, for a pound, send its users a text message at a prearranged time to help them lie and cheat their way out of an awkward situation. Having seen “over 1000 excuses sent in its first month”, founder Emma Kane was moved to say: “Britain’s mobiles phone users are obviously a devious lot.” Sneak, for one, resents this kind of sweeping statement. Given that market penetration of mobiles in the UK is roughly 100 percent, what Kane is actually saying is that everyone in the country is a devious liar – including you, Sneak, your spouse or partner, your best friend and your vicar. That’s slander, surely

BurlingtonFreePress.com: There are fewer and fewer people asking, “Paper or plastic?” at supermarket checkout aisles throughout the Burlington area and across the country.
At Price Chopper’s Burlington store, eight of 19 checkout lanes are equipped with automated “Easy Scan Checkout” machines. Each of the two sets, known as “quads,” has four automated checkout stations and one employee to verify age for alcohol purchases, witness credit card transactions and assist shoppers.
The rest of the duties are left to customers: punching produce codes, weighing vegetables, scanning for prices and bagging food. To pay, shoppers feed cash into the machine or swipe a credit or debit card.
“They are embracing the opportunity to participate in a process that will help them move faster,” Price Chopper spokeswoman Mona Golub said of the shoppers, adding that those who ring-up their own purchases experience “a sense of accomplishment.”

Springwise: 3.5 billion wire hangers are tossed into landfills every year, and that’s just in the United States. While the hangers are light, inexpensive and sturdy, they’re not exactly bio-degradable. Hanger Network has developed an alternative: a dry cleaner’s hanger made entirely from recycled paper. EcoHangers are sturdy and cheap. And because they’re paper, they can be completely covered in full-colour advertising.
Everybody wins: Hanger Network creates a media network of up to 3.5 billion in-home ‘views’, and advertisers gain valuable entry into consumers’ bedrooms for less than the price of a stamp. Dry cleaners get free hangers (wire hangers are about USD 0.08 each), and consumers no longer have to struggle with awkward tangles of wires. And on top of it all, it’s an earth-friendlier solution. What’s not to love?

Shiny Shiny: Do you spend hours worrying about the crust round the top of your toothpaste tube? Do you judge people by whether they squeeze the tube from the end or the middle? Do you think perhaps you should readjust your priorities in life? If the answer to the first two is yes, and no to the last, you should look into the X-paste dispenser.
It takes any toothpaste tube, and promises to deposit ‘the perfect amount’ of toothpaste morning and night. And so ends another of the great engineering conundrums.

BBC News: Japanese firm Fujitsu is pushing a technology that can encode data into a picture that is invisible to the human eye but can be decoded by a mobile phone with a camera. The company believes the technology will have spin off implications for the publishing industry.
“The concept is to be able to link the printed page into the digital domain,” said Mike Nelson, general manager for sales operations at Fujitsu Europe.
The technique stems from a 2,500-year-old practice called steganography, which saw the Greeks sending warnings of attacks on wooden tablets and then covering them in wax and tattooing messages on shaved heads that were then covered by the regrowth of hair. Fujitsu’s technique works by taking advantage of the sensitivities of the human eye, which struggles to see the colour yellow.
