That can definitely happen with a bit of imagination, creativity, science, and the will to put the technology to even better use, as in this case of Derby, a handicapped canine that was able to experience first hand the empowering benefits of 3D printing.

Spain’s newspapers actually don’t want Google News to go

In a rather ironic turn of events, some of Spain's newspaper publishers actually want Google News to come back. This after the search giant announced its withdrawal of Google News service in Spain due to a new law that would require Google to pay publishers a fee for showing a snippet of news, no matter how small or how big.
