Lilac Mohr (photo) is a Senior Java Developer who got sick of her male colleagues
complaining about that there are no attractive women in IT. Reason enough for Mrs. Mohr to produce a pin-up style calendar featuring women
who work in technology.
We usually do it the other way around, when producing our I4U Gadget Model Photos. We give models gadgets and make them look like Gorgeous Geeks.
The Geek Gorgeous Calendar is actually sold for $19.99 + $4 shipping online to raise money to start a self-sustaining scholarship fund for girls who want to study Computer Science in college. Lilac Mohr's message to young female basically is:
Becoming a Java Programmer is as sexy and cool as becoming a singer like Shakira.
The Geek Gorgeous Calendar story made it onto the CNET Blog (Via The Gadget Blog).
Calendars of scantily clad women who work on a farm have appeared here in Germany recently. The message is the same. Farm girls can be sexy and cool too. See the photos here.

Apple says celebrity accounts were compromised
The attack was described by Apple as "all too common on the Internet." However, the company is denying earlier reports that its iCloud servers and Find my iPhone service were undermined.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
