The aging process can be slowed, but it's an inexorable deterioration, as our bodies stop repairing the organs we need to survive. But researchers at the University of Edinburgh have managed to regenerate at least one organ in mice by tweaking a single gene. The team targeted the thymus, an organ responsible for incubating the white blood cells called T cells that attack infections. The thymus is crucial in immune system development, but it's also one of the first organs to atrophy in otherwise healthy humans. As a person (or mouse) ages normally, they'll become more and more vulnerable to disease, making something like the flu potentially deadly.

Society can't stop coming up with new ways to take selfies. The S.E.L.F.I.E, which is short for "Self Enhancing Live Feed Image Engine," is a two-way mirror that will capture your selfies for you with the help of a Mac Mini, a webcam and Arduino-controlled LEDs. Users activate the experimental device by standing on a custom vinyl graphic on the floor and smiling. The S.E.L.F.I.E will then execute a countdown before taking a photograph and publishing it on Twitter. Designed by digital agency iStrategyLabs, the S.E.L.F.I.E feels like a more sophisticated version of last year's Twitter Mirror, which allowed celebrities to shoot self-portraits and upload them to relevant event feeds. Those looking to acquire a S.E.L.F.I.E of their own so they can turn their bathrooms into amateur photography studios should contact iStrategyLabs directly.

A controversial document that suggests that Jesus of Nazareth had a wife is most likely ancient and not a modern forgery, according to a paper published today in the Harvard Theological Review. The papyrus fragment, known as the "Gospel of Jesus's Wife," has been the subject of widespread debate since it was discovered in 2012 because it includes the phrase "Jesus said to them, 'My wife...'." It also mentions that "she will be able to be my disciple," which led some to question whether women should be allowed to become Catholic priests.

Not a dropbox user myself, but this certainly guarantees that won't be changing.

If you want a tablet, you can buy the cellular version for the same price as the wifi version through T-Mobile, and get an extra free 1 gig of data per month for the rest of the year, in addition to the 200 MB free for life.

What's your guys' go to tech news site?

I used to use Mashable ton but that dropped off considerably with the site redesign a while back. Honestly I think my favorite source right now is just using the Tech section on the Facebook Pages app.

Ha, I honestly never cared about DB in the first place simply because it doesn't give me much space. I have 27GB on OneDrive (7GB automatically, extra 20 with Office subscription), and Google Drive raised their free amount recently.

Dropbox is so much better than the other cloud options though. I'm not going anywhere yet.

It's incredibly efficient for my student needs, for sure. The free space my university got me is a huge deal maker.
