OOD DAY FOR: Happy bedfellows, as a German scientist has invented a high-tech pillow that purports to stop snoring. Daryoush Bazargani at the University of Rostock said the computerized pillow shifts the snorer’s head until a sensor no longer detects snoring noises. “I invented it because I snore,” Bazargani said.

BAD DAY FOR: Forgetting your roots, as DaimlerChrysler CEO Dieter Zetsche found himself defending his proposal to rename the company Daimler AG, rather than Daimler-Benz, its name from 1926 to 1998. The name change, expected to be voted on today, became necessary after Daimler sold off Chrysler earlier this year. (AP in Yahoo! Finance)
