The developer, Tom Waddington, said the button's code appeared in Facebook's Javascript SDK as a tag that reads " ," and he has somehow gotten it to show up on his website , although it's still a work in progress.  The button looks like Facebook's Like button and all its other buttons in that it has blue wording on top of a light blue bubble, but it also includes an icon with a plus button, based off of the one on Waddington's website.

Unsubscribing from annoying marketing emails is now easier than ever for users of Google's Gmail service. Gmail has added an "unsubscribe" button that users will see at the top of promotional messages they receive. If they click the button, Gmail will try to ensure they no longer receive such material from that sender, Google said. The Silicon Valley tech giant said it implemented the feature as a way to benefit both recipients and senders of marketing emails.  PHOTOS: Five ways the Samsung Gear 2 is better than its predecessor Without the new "unsubscribe" button, users typically have had to delve through tiny text at the bottom of unwanted messages looking for links to "unsubscribe" pages on companies' websites.

Facebook is currently testing a video "Call" button for its Timeline profiles, giving more prominence to its little known Video Calling feature. The social network confirmed that the button is being tested on a few people's profiles, being placed under cover photos and in between the current "Message" and gear buttons. That location is a familiar spot for the "Call" button since that's where it was previously located after Video Calling was launched by Facebook last summer, as can be seen on Facebook's page for the feature.

A mysterious man presents a couple with a box, telling them that if they push its button they will receive a large amount of cash but someone in the world will die as a result. Such is the simple premise of the Richard Matheson short story "Button, Button," which has been adapted by writer-director Richard Kelly into "The Box." Opening Nov. 6, the film stars Frank Langella as the man and Cameron Diaz and James Marsden as the couple.

WITH peevish arrogance, Terrence Howard speaks ["Ready for a New Fight," March 2] of searching, like any good "warrior," for "the thing that's going to make me fail." He obviously expects to be congratulated for his "courage." But if he thinks that the point of Tennessee Williams' "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" -- this beautiful play about the agonies of the closet and the tortures of internalized homophobia -- is to expose the "hypocrisy and mendacity" of a society that won't let men put their arms around each other without being "accused" of being gay -- well, then I guess he is to be congratulated, because he's already failed.

As Arizona awaits its governor's decision on a religious freedom bill cast by critics as anti-gay, civil rights advocates in Indiana bashed its state's own foray into controversial legislation: A measure that would exempt many faith-based organizations from a law that prevents religious discrimination in employment decisions. But while the furor grew in Arizona, Indiana lawmakers quickly nixed their measure Tuesday. "The amendment is dead,” said Republican caucus spokeswoman Tory Flynn.

Now Moore, a quadriplegic, coughs by pressing a button on a control box on his wheelchair. Moore's cough was the first performed electronically by a quadriplegic, said his doctor, Anthony F.

The sleek Infiniti G37 Cindy Marsh bought last August was the car of her dreams, equipped with the latest keyless electronics technology that allows her to start the engine with the touch of a button. But right away, the system gave her trouble. To get the engine started, she would sometimes have to tap the power button repeatedly. Sometimes it wouldn't start unless she opened and closed the car doors, Marsh recalled. She eventually adapted to the system's quirks but said that even now she isn't sure how to shut off the engine in an emergency.

It was just a few ticks of the clock before midnight Thursday when Ed Orgeron blended his own feelings into those of USC football fans. "Today, I woke up happy," he said, "and I'm not a happy guy. " Friday morning, most USC fans, who had been like Orgeron, woke up the same. Orgeron called USC's 38-31 victory over Arizona "an A-plus. " In most ways, he was right. The Trojans needed to win. Period. Be it a fluke, or by a bad call. Even the lights going out and changing the momentum.
