Dinosaurs were large size animals that dominated terrestrial ecosystems for over 160 million years, first appearing approximately 230 million years ago. Non-avian dinosaurs suddenly became extinct approximately 65 million years ago. Now a high school student hunting fossils in the badlands of his native North Dakota discovered an extremely rare mummified dinosaur that includes not just bones but also seldom seen fossilized soft tissue such as skin and muscles, scientists will announce today. With this new discovery it may be possible to create jurassicpark :)
This is a neat find. I can say a rare find, but I think it is not enough for any actual biotechnology to build jurassicpark.

Yup. The sub $40 mobile is here. Motorola, in a bid to tap into ultra low cost mobile handset segment in new markets like india, has introduced a phone in the sin-$40 category. Motorola announced C series phone at 3GSM Asia show in Singapore:
- C118 – Bare bones, focused on battery life and basic functions like SMS
- C139 – Adds more style with a color screen, increased battery life and enhanced usability
- C168 – Builds on the feature set of the other two, and adds things like an FM radio
- C257/261 – Ultra-thin design with a basic feature set similar to the above handsets
It befits both consumer as well as mobile operators as dropping handset prices has always led to an increased subscriber base. All these new phone will be available by April 2006 in India.
Update: Philips to make sub-Rs 1000 ($20) mobile :)
