Count up all the stuff in a galaxy and you should have a pretty good understanding of how much light is being emitted. But that doesn’t seem to be the case for our own Milky Way. Our galaxy’s got a source of extra gamma rays, the highest-energy light, right in its center. And scientists don’t know where all that…
The duo sat down with MTV News in Berlin to discuss a pair of unlikely collaborations.
By James Montgomery
<P>Theirs is a relationship that has spanned time and Twitter, <a href=”https://twitter.com/#!/keshasuxx/status/77286418598211584″ target=”_blank”>seafood</a> and <a href=”https://twitter.com/#!/keshasuxx/status/157523381602889728″ target=”_blank”>shaving</a>, but over the years, the unlikely bond between the <a href=”http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/black_keys/artist.jhtml”>Black Keys</a> and <a href=”http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/id_3213641/artist.jhtml”>Ke$ ha</a> has grown to become something <i>more</i>: a genuine friendship, marked with the occasional trespassing charge. </P><P> </P><P></p><div class=”player-placeholder right” title=”Would The Black Keys Ever Collaborate With Ke$ ha?” id=”vid:731631.id:1678505″ width=”240″ height=”211″></div><p> </P><P> </P><P>”We’re friends with her, we’ve known her since way before she was famous, before she was even a singer, I guess,” Keys drummer Patrick Carney told MTV News. “When she was 16 years old, she used to sneak into our shows. We kind of became friends with her by kicking her out of our backstage room, over and over again. She actually has snuck into shows in L.A., San Diego, Coachella …” </P><P> </P><P>”She snuck in and [got] kicked out of one show, like, <i>five</i> times,” frontman Dan Auerbach added. “[She] snuck in through the kitchen. I don’t know if she’s such a big fan; she just likes breaking the rules.” </P><P> </P><P>So, when MTV News sat down with the ‘Keys in Berlin during the premiere of their <a href=”/news/articles/1678662/black-keys-gold-on-the-ceiling-music-video.jhtml”>”Gold on the Ceiling”</a> video, we had to ask if their friendship with Ke$ ha would take the next step: an actual musical collaboration. It’s not all that far-fetched, considering both Ke$ h and Auerbach live in Nashville (“I see her every once in a while flying by in her T-Top [convertible],” Auerbach laughed), and recently, the glittery one has logged studio time with <a href=”https://twitter.com/#!/keshasuxx/status/160846424609787906″ target=”_blank”>the Flaming Lips</a>. So, could we see a team-up on the next Black Keys album? </P><P> </P><P>”I guess, I don’t know,” Carney said. “We don’t really do that many collaborations, really.” </P><P> </P><P>OK, so if a Ke$ ha collabo isn’t in the cards, just who would the ‘Keys like to work with next? Well, as it turns out, they’ve got their eyes set on landing a very big star for the next record … even if they mistakenly believe he’s deceased. </P><P> </P><P>”We both want to work with Jim Nabors very badly, but apparently he’s not with us anymore,” Carney said. </P><P>Oh, <a href=”http://www.jimnabors.com/” target=”_blank”>but he is.</a> Which means that, much like Nabors, the dream is alive. The Ke$ ha collabo? Eh, probably not so much. </P><P> </P><P><i>Should the Black Keys hit the studio with Ke$ ha? Leave your comment below!</i></p>

The hackers involved in last month’s cyber heist of Bangladesh Bank, in which they managed to steal only $ 81 million of a planned $ 951 million haul because of a spelling error, might actually be smarter than they were initially made out to be. Reuters reports that investigators looking into the case previously said that the criminals had merely hacked into Bangladesh Bank’s poorly protected network and grabbed passwords to log into the SWIFT system that allowed them to make transactions. But according to research conducted by British defense contractor BAE Systems, it looks like the hackers compromised the software so…

Question by Calvin: Will “cloud computing” be the final nail in the coffin for the IT profession in America?
Many IT jobs have been outsourced to India, etc. Do you think with cloud computing, the remaining IT, networking jobs will be outsourced away from America?
Answer by austinjb1
No, companies will always need IT to manage networks, computers, help desk, phones and internal applications. Even cloud based applications still require interfaces which would typically be built by IT. The “cloud” is just another method of running an application. It does get IT out of the business of running a data center but not all applications are going to run in a cloud so some sort of server room will still be required.

Question by natobanato2: Can someone please explain what “cloud computing” is in laymen’s terms?
I am not a tech nut. I know enough about it but I’m not obsessed and engrossed in all of it. Anyway, I was reading the top ten Tech stories from the the 2000’s and it talked about cloud computing. I looked it up on Wikipedia but it still doesn’t make a lot of sense. Can someone please explain it to me?
Answer by MaskedMusketeer
Cloud computing is the trend nowadays where applications are hosted online and run by servers, instead of having your computer run them locally.
This means that wherever you go, regardless of what platform or device you are using, you can access the application remotely and run it as you would with a normal program.
So perhaps you might own a iPhone or a smartphone with Google Apps capabilities — you can access Google Calendar, Google Documents, Google Reader etc. all of which are applications hosted on Google servers — they don’t run on your device.
The prime advantages of cloud computing is that your data is always “in sync” — because your data is kept in the clouds (on the net) as opposed to just being on your device, wherever you go you always have access to the same information.

Question by Kevin: What the heck is “cloud computing” in layman’s terms? and why is it “the future”?
Answer by fedia_fedia
Your computer will be remote.
All calculations will be done on a fast server, and you’ll just receive the visual information.
it’s the future because it’s extremely universal, you’ll be able to run any app, any game, any file on any device with internet or a screen. Crysis 2 on iPhone is more likely than you think.

Question by David: Can you please explain what “Cloud Computing” in the simplest way possible?
Answer by OtherGuy
I believe cloud computing refers to running your programs on remote computers over the internet. The “cloud” is the uncertainty about where the computer you are using actually is, in the world.

Question by Arun: Could anybody explain me about “Cloud Computing” Technology, course duration, fees Structure?
Answer by John
In general, the essence of cloud computing is the way of keeping information. In traditional computing, we store all data and programs on our PCs and normally we can access them only through the same computer unless you allow remote access. Whereas in cloud computing all necessary data and programs are stored in the service provider’s information centre and thereof they can be accessed from any PC with an Internet connection. In many cases you don’t even have to download and install any applications to your computer, because they are already in the “cloud”.
