Dead Island: a holiday paradise gone mad

"The player is drawn into the world of Dead Island on the brink of a mysterious epidemic that suddenly, and without warning, breaks out on the fictional island of Banoi. As a guest of the Royal Palms Resort, the player's stay was supposed to be a dream holiday; a luxurious getaway to the beautiful beaches of a tropical paradise. But faced with the reality of a zombie apocalypse, there is only one thing left to do: Survive."

(Deep Silver Inc.)

Google Trends caught swine flu early

search data may have been able to provide an early warning of the swine flu outbreak – if the company had been looking in the right place.

Last week, at the request of the Centres for Disease Control, Google took a retroactive look at its search data from Mexico. And there the team found a pre–media bump in telltale flu–related search terms (you know, 'influenza + phlegm + coughing') that was inconsistent with standard, seasonal flu trends.

Steelcase addresses Furnitosis

"Carpel tunnel? Psh. That's for sissies. Steelcase addresses the more serious and widespread epidemic known as Furnitosis: "A condition born from ill–fitting, unsightly office furniture. Symptoms include curvature of the spine hunching, fatigue, dementia, disillusionment, headache, shame, sagging and unplanned guttural noises." Symptoms include Waffle Butt (not to be confused with Muffin Bum), Noodle Knees, and Office Avoidus.

Sufferers need not suffer any longer. "It's a treatable malady born from ill–fitting, unsightly office furniture...Fortunately, Furnitosis is an easy condition to remedy. By selecting sleek, ergonomic chairs and workspaces from SteelcaseStore.com, you're well on your way to fighting this condition." Whew! Anyone got a couple grand we can borrow?"
(Jeannie Choe, Core77)
