Ian Poulter's personalized Ferrari FF It's a given that anyone in the market for a Ferrari is looking to stand out from the crowd. If you are really concerned about the prospect of having to park next to an identical supercar on your next trip to the shops though, you can always go for some extra personalization. Ferrari has long been aware of this dilemma and late last year ramped up its personalization efforts with the launch of the "Tailor Made" program. Professional golfer and renowned snappy-dresser Ian Poulter has just become the first North American recipient of the fruits of this endeavor, taking delivery of a unique, tartan-trimmed Ferrari FF.  Read More

Some clever cross-referencing has helped an international team of researchers establish a link between low periods of solar activity and frosty European winters. The Sun's level of magnetic activity follows an 11-year cycle. Peaks in this cycle pose a threat to telecommunications and electricity networks and it's long been suspected that there's a correlation between the opposite end of the cycle and extreme winters in Europe.

If you ever need an example of the exponential rise of technology, look no further than the digital camera. The ability to capture images on an electronic sensor has transformed photography and the way we record life's precious moments (and plenty of the un-precious ones as well) in less than 25 years. So how will we capture our holiday snaps when another two decades have passed? By 2030, will today's spanking new DSLR be as unrecognizable as a box brownie is today? Here's a look at some of the significant innovations and ideas we've encountered in recent times that may hold some clues.  Read More
