Faced with one of the highest obesity rates in the country, West Virginia has launched a program to place a physically active video game in over 750 public schools. No word yet as to whether state buffet restaurants will be forced to put them in their lobbies (I’m talkin’ to you, Barboursville!).
Believe it or not, Firefox 1.0 has been around for less than a year. In that short time, it has gained at least 10% of the browser marketshare and spurred Microsoft to finally bring back Internet Explorer from its innovation stasis.
