There's a new job site online. And it only wants attractive candidates for posted positions. Make that physically attractive.

BeautifulPeople.com, a dating site for those deemed physically attractive, is reportedly adding an employment component. This would presumably allow employers to hire only those folks that are "attractive" -- as voted on by the site's members, said to be some 750,000 strong.

Greg Hodge, managing director of BeautifulPeople.com, said in a statement, "An honest employer will tell you that it pays to hire good-looking staff. Attractive people tend to make a better first impression on clients, win more business and earn more."

Razer keeps pushing the limits on thin electronic devices that allow users to do cool things. The latest?

A 14-inch-screen notebook that the company bills as the "world's thinnest gaming laptop".

So, how thin -- and functional -- is the Razer Blade? As the device's web site clearly illustrates, thinner than a dime. That would be a dime stood up on its edge. Though thin as a dime lying flat probably isn't far behind. The LED display will support a resolution as sharp as 1600 x 900, and the screen makes use of a 2GB GDDR5 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M graphics card, reportedly charged enough to handle whatever the latest new releases might throw its way.

While this technology has been under development for a while, Bell Labs stands out because the company has managed to make this technology work without a lens. The camera uses transparent openings to capture images, opening up new possibilities for camera design.

Never underestimate technology – or kids. Recently a group of high school students from Kansas City, Missouri defied their pasts as at-risk kids to convert an old car into an electric car powered completely by social media.

According to Forbes, the car isn't literally powered by social media. Yet if you're on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube, those following MindDrive on Twitter provided the car 5 watts of social fuel. Facebook fueled the car 1 watt, while watching their YouTube powered the electric car with 3 watts.
