Microsoft files mobile-PC interface patent

microsoftMicrosoft has applied for a new patent for a “Smart Interface System for Mobile Communications Devices” The patent is aimed at allowing users to dock a mobile phone with a small device and is aimed at eliminating different barriers that prohibit ease of use and productivity on a small mobile phone. Once the mobile is connected to the cradle, the phone can easily be connected with various peripherals including a keyboard, mouse, and printer, among other hardware. You will also be able to connect your phone to networks and different displays such as to your monitor or to your TV automatically without hassle. Once the dock is connected to the cradle, it will also have the capacity to change different profiles on the device.

I think this is an interesting patent as we start using our mobile phones more and more; it will become easier to simply connect the phone to a standard hub to make life easier.

Colon cancer is one of the leading causes of death. Irrespective of family history, everyone is exposed to the risk. About 90% of colon cancer cases begin from non-cancerous tumors, polyps, which could form in the large bowel. Screening with a colonoscopy will painlessly remove any polyps hence almost entirely reducing your risk of developing the horrible disease. The good news is that about 90% of colon cancer cases are preventable through a simple (yes, simple) colonoscopy.
