Yahoo News - almost 2 years
When Google unveiled Android back in 2007, it was an OEM’s dream come true — Google wouldn’t charge any licensing fees to use the bare-bones version of it and OEMs could customize it to their hearts’ desires. Android Wear, on the other hand, is another beast entirely and OEMs are showing significantly less enthusiasm for it than they did with the original Android. DON’T MISS: Our HTC One M9 review!

Huffington Post - almost 4 years

Visit NY1 for its full report. According to the New York Post, teacher Jane Youn had originally distributed the problems -- reportedly written by students -- for a previous class to augment a social studies lesson on slavery.

Authorities in Maine and Massachusetts are being asked to watch their shores for the body of a University of New Hampshire student believed to have been killed a week ago. Nineteen-year-old Elizabeth "Lizzi" Marriott, of Westborough, Mass., vanished Oct. 9 after attending an evening class in Durham. Seth Mazzaglia, 29, was charged Saturday with second-degree murder and is accused of strangling or suffocating her in his apartment that night. Her body hasn't been found, but authorities have been searching the waters around Peirce Island in nearby Portsmouth. Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young said Monday that "credible information" has led authorities to focus their efforts on the 27-acre island that separates the city from the Piscataqua River. Marine patrol officials have been using sonar and an underwater camera, she said, but the river's currents and eddies have hampered their efforts. "The search in that area may last several more days," she said. "We have not dis ...

    Eventually, her condition continued to deteriorate and Jang was hospitalized in Seoul, where she died at approximately 4:04 p.m. on September 1, 2009.
    More Details Hide Details After Jang's death, it was belatedly revealed that she had been secretly married. She had wed her husband, Kim Young-kyun, while in the U.S. for cancer treatment, and registered the marriage to make it official in Korea just days before her death. Kim later published a book commemorating the 608 days of their relationship, called My Last Gift To Her. The book features previously unreleased photos (including that of their Las Vegas wedding), as well as some of the letters and text messages they'd exchanged. When asked in an interview why he wrote the book, Kim answered: "Right now, my memories of Jin-young are distinct, but I'm human and someday my memories will grow dimmer. I don't want to lose my memories of being with her. Writing this was my way to deal with that. Someone who writes for a living told me that it helps and is a good method for organizing their emotions, and those words motivated me to write the book. Also, as I've already said in the prologue, Jin-young was an actress who had a great future ahead of her, and I thought it would help in having her remembered beautifully. Even when her time was limited, she didn't give up hope and lived diligently, and I wanted to let people know of Jin-young's passionate life."
