UMD Ranks 18th in the “Top Party School” List | News

You may want to keep tabs on your kids if they are heading to the University of Maryland.

Princeton Review released its Best Colleges edition, which ranks the nation’s universities in a variety of categories.

In the Top Party Schools division, Maryland ranked number 18 in the country.

Not to far away, West Virginia placed number six.  The hardest partying school of all, however, was Ohio University.

At the other end of the spectrum, the top “Stone-Cold Sober” school of higher education was listed as Brigham Young University, in Utah.

New iPhone 5 Design? | Technology

Could This Be the Design of the iPhone 5?

This is not the iPhone 5. It’s claimed to be an iPhone 5 clone made by a factory in Shenzhen, China, right where the actual iPhone 5 is being produced. Could this really be what the iPhone 5 looks like?

Check out the pictures, because something tells me it could be very close to the real thing.

It certainly matches the plastic cases and the rumors about Apple using rounded glass for the screen and the back. It also matches thealleged spy shot published last week.

From above, it reminds me a bit of the first iPhone. Overall, it feels like a polished merge between the first generation iPhone and the iPhone 4, with the iPhone 3G’s smoothed curves factored in as well. Its simplicity is very Apple, and to me it feels like it could be a real Apple design.

The alleged clone is only 7mm thick. That’s only 0.275 inches! Obviously, it doesn’t have the same guts as the real thing will have, but I certainly expect a thinner iPhone 5.

Why this could be it

In China, many products are often cloned before they even reach the market—based either on digital blueprints or models sneaked out by workers when the products are already in production. That’s the reason you see cases and cloned replacement parts of the iPhone or iPad models before they even get released.

Given that the iPhone 5 is probably being churned out of the factories as we speak—either in limited production runs or ramping up—I wouldn’t be surprised if someone got a prototype and sold it to some enterprising pirate company.

In any case, it seems way too polished not to be a clone of the actual iPhone 5. I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if the real thing looks exactly like this. [Giz-China]

p.s. In fact, I’m so sure that I just made this bet.

 

What do you think about the possible new design for Apple’s iPhone 5?

Mumbo Sauce Coming to a Supermarket Shelf Near You | News

(via @WCP)

D.C. native Arsha Jonesdishes to WaPo about her special brand of mumbo sauce. Jones, 34, has bottled up her own version of the District’sindigenous condiment, a staple of Chinese carry-outs across the city, which is slowly gaining  greater recognition beyond the local chicken-wing-lover demographic.Complex magazine, for instance, recently posted a guide to mumbo sauce hotspots in D.C.

Jones’ own brand is called Capital City Mumbo Sauce, which she now sells online. The mother of four makes the stuff out of her home in Annapolis and sees great potential for popularizing the product beyond the inner-city subculture. One possibility: “Maybe mumbo sauce in grocery aisles in Bethesda.”

There are SO many different tastes to Mumbo Sauce around the DMV area. Curious to see which direction this mumbo sauce goes. The sweet and slightly tangy route, or the more like ketchup route. Either way! Now we can stop taking the 15inch tall red bottles of mumbo sauce from the local carryout and have a bottle of or own at home!

What carryout in the city has the best mumbo sauce to you?! It’s as if we can revoke your DMV card if you’ve never had mumbo sauce! You can put it on just about everything you can get at The Carry Out; fried rice, fried chicken, fried shrimp, french fries .. pretty much anything fried!

There’s even a blog in the DMV created by @DjHeatDC .. http://DCMumboSauce.com which features music from artists in the city! And of course you’ve heard Wale mention mumbo sauce in his songs! .. oh yeah, don’t forget the half & half!
