    Apple’s recent gremlins streaming the iPhone 6 launch returned when they went on sale. The Apple store suffered badly and was unusable for hours after it was supposed to go live.  I don’t know enough about these things to tell whether it’s just impossible to have a site stay up with millions of people hitting it or whether […]

    A couple of weeks ago, Microsoft sent out invites to an event on the 30th of September in which many believe that it could be about Windows 9. Well it looks like Microsoft France’s President, Alain Crozier, has confirmed it. According to reports, Crozier was quoted as saying, “Last year, we were with a Windows 8 release, in a few hours, a few days we will release our new OS, Windows 9.” However Microsoft France’s Nicolas Petit, the director of Marketing and Operations was quick to correct Crozier and said, “We look forward to seeing you in late September, in San…

    While most of us associate with arcades as a place we go to have fun and play video games, it seems that over in China there are some who associate arcades with gambling which is apparently a huge problem to the point where at one point in time, China went about ordering a massive destruction of arcade cabinets in hopes that it would prevent people from visiting arcades and gambling. In fact just last week it was reported that Shanghai police had raided a gambling den where twelve men were arrested in the process. Well in hopes of preventing similar situations in the future and perhaps to…

So now that speed is out of the way, what about its camera? Well thanks to a post by Lisa Bettany, the cofounder of the Camera+ app, she has taken the liberty to compare photos taken by every iPhone Apple has ever made.

  • Everybody Was Sumo Wrestling: Sumo Suits

    Hazel Chua
    23 Sep 2014 | 11:00 am
    Sumo wrestling ain’t sumo without the extra padding. And by padding, we mean all that extra weight (fat, muscle, and everything in between) on your body. The closest thing you can get to sumo wrestling is by donning this Sumo Suit and going at your opponent like there’s no tomorrow. Granted, you won’t be able to crush your opponent under your weight– I mean, it’s just a suit with lots of padding, for crying out loud– but the extra bulk will let you move and simulate the motions of an actual sumo wrestler. At least, in theory. It’s available for…

    Of all the smartwatches on the market, Oru seems to be one of the smartest. So it hasn’t exactly hit the shelves yet, since it’s currently up for funding on Kickstarter, but the features that it comes with makes it a top contender for the title. The Oru is the first ever smartwatch that comes with a dual display: a full-color hi-res TFT touch screen and a low energy E-paper display so it can stay on 24/7 without draining the battery. Flipping from one display to the other is easy as pie, since all you’ll have to do is pull the watch crown and rotate. The Oru runs on both…

    The most blinged-out phone in the market has to be the iPhone. Those with money to burn have commissioned custom iPhones time and time again, adding jewels and crystals and even coating it in precious metals. The iPhone 6 is no exception, as a gold-plated custom version of the phone is now on sale. Gold & Co., is offering a 24-karat version of the newly-released iPhone 6, and word on the street is that big-name celebrities, athletes (including Floyd Mayweather Jr.), and royalty (some UAE royal family members) are interested in owning one.

  • Can of Potato Chip Coasters: Yummiest Coasters Ever

    Go for prevention instead of the cure. Not that water rings are a disease, but they eventually become a pain to clean up once you’ve left them on your coffee table long enough. Prevention has always been to grab a coaster and set it down onto the table before you put your glass down. It’s natural for people to forget (or be too lazy to get up and get one from the kitchen), so the solution comes in this little can. It’s the coaster of Wavy Chips, and you’ll find a stack of coasters instead of potato chips inside this little canister. Go get your Pringles elsewhere…

    If you’re looking for the best point-and-shoot camera that you can get your hands on, the $800 Sony RX100 III is the way to go, handily beating anything cheaper than $1,000 and many cameras that cost more. After logging more than 40 hours of research on 20 different cameras, and spending a week testing our finalists, we’ve concluded that you won’t get better image quality from any zoom lens camera of this size. When it comes to video, the RX100 III actually produces better footage than many higher-end DSLR cameras. Plus, it’s still slim enough to fit into most pants pockets, though…

  • High school kids show strong support for First Amendment

    19 Sep 2014 | 11:25 pm
    by Larry Magid This post first appeared in the San Jose Mercury New Let me start out by admitting my bias. I’m a strong supporter of the First Amendment. With very few exceptions (like child sex abuse images and yelling “fire” in a crowded theater), I believe that free speech is an absolute right for people of all ages and it makes me feel good when I learn that others, especially young people, tend to agree. The reason I love it when young people support free speech is because they are our future. If people grow up believing in something, they’re more likely to…

    iOS 8 is the follow-up to last years radical redesign of Apple’s mobile operating system. After the visual overhaul, the company went to work on adding a bunch of features that would make its devices more open with features like extensions and third-party keyboards, yet more secure with improved permissions and more widespread Touch ID integration. With iOS 8, Apple looks to refine the experience that was introduced last year, while allowing features for the power users of the world to shine.

AT&T has been notifying some customers who are mid-contract that they can switch to a Next plan at no charge, doing away with contracts going forward. Of course, there are those who are still under AT&T's grandfathered "unlimited" data plan, but others simply want to know if programs like AT&T Next and Verizon Edge are worth it, or if they're rip-offs.

    23 Sep 2014 | 2:00 pm
    The unique shape of this stainless steel flask makes it look like a blood bag full of life-giving serum for the T-1000 from Terminator 2, and that's not too far from the truth. The prototype for the Liquid Body Flask was actually created by pumping water into a couple of panels of stainless steel welded together at the edges until they inflated like a water balloon.Read more...

  • The Amazing Bendable iPhone 6 Plus, Users Report Warping Of Apple's Big Boy

    23 Sep 2014 | 11:04 am
    Apple's iPhone 6 Plus packs a bevy of improvements into its phablet-sized frame -- its battery life dwarfs all previous iPhones, its screen quality and resolution are excellent, it's just six ounces, and a scant 7.1mm thick. As an added bonus, according to a number of MacRumors readers, it's got a hidden feature -- it bends! And no, we don't...

  • Apple to Create 13 inch iPad

    26 Aug 2014 | 6:20 pm
    Bloomberg has reported that Apple is set to launch a 13 inch iPad in the first quarter of 2015. This is a departure for them, the initial Pad had a 9.7 inch screen. Two years later, Apple released the iPad mini with a 7.9 inch screen but was quickly a favorite among Apple enthusiasts. With Apple’s tablet sales slowing, this could be a big boost for Apple. Offering 3 sizes would allow them to expand the market and hopefully turn the tide for iPad sales. Share This

    So you just purchased a new iPad, and you are excited to try out the new Retina display. So what do you do? Open up your Netflix app, browse some nifty high-resolution artwork, click play and – what?! You’re looking at the same standard-definition video. So what’s up? Well, it seems Netflix is taking their sweet time in allowing HD streaming on the new iPad. So, in the mean time, they updated their artwork to appear nice and crisp, but left streaming untouched. Netflix tweeted that HD streaming is “on the way.” Netflix is already streaming 1080p content to the new Apple TV’s, but…
  • Where’s the “3″ in the new iPad?

    Steven Tweedie
    13 Mar 2012 | 11:30 pm
    So the new iPad isn’t called the “iPad 3” or “iPad HD”, what’s the big deal? Apple obviously had their reasons for severing the number from the name, but their timing is peculiar. Why make the decision with the third generation iPad when the iPhone is currently at iPhone 4S? The first possible answer is simple. Right now, Apple is releasing a new iPad each year, and at this rate, we would be at the iPad 6 in just three years. At that point, it’s getting a little excessive. According to Apple, the new iPad is breaking pre-order records already, and is on par to see…

    Steven Tweedie
    11 Mar 2012 | 8:59 pm
    March 7th saw the announcement of Apple’s newest iPad, named simply “New iPad”. A departure from tradition, this marks Apple’s decision to discontinue a numerical model, instead focusing on refreshing the model on an assumed yearly basis. This is similar to the iPod line, where instead of numbers, the generation or year is used. Speculation has started that Apple may decide to introdudce this naming scheme for their newest iPhone. But enough on the name, what was all the hype about? The New iPad’s most striking feature is its Retina display, a crystal-clear 2048…

    Michael Anderson

    A few weeks ago I bought a brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on a great deal, and wanted to see if it would be possible to use it to replace my iPhone AND iPad, much as I would try to do with an iPhone 6+. As usual I went ‘all in’ with my attempt – and failed. Here is why! Until getting the iPhone 5 in 2012 I had been an Android-only phone user, and had sampled pretty much every new 7″ Android tablet since the Samsung Galaxy Tab. I had a huge library of Android content between Google Play and Amazon’s appstore. I knew the territory, and have always maintained at least one…

  • Smart Sizzors Are Like a Swiss Army Kitchen Knife

    Chris Chamberlain
    22 Sep 2014 | 8:15 am
    If you’re like me, you probably don’t treat that pair of scissors in your kitchen junk drawer very well. At best, you keep an extra set that you abuse by cutting wire, chicken bones, blister pack or heavy cardboard boxes, and they just continue to get duller and duller over time. With Smart Sizzors, now you’ll only need one pair! Regular utility scissors are designed for basically one purpose, cutting paper. And really, cutting more than a few sheets at the same time usually results in a ragged edge anyway. Scissors are notoriously difficult to sharpen, and most homeowners just struggle…

    This is a first for me; we’ve covered plenty of external battery packs on Gear Diary, but never one that was able to serve as both “an emergency vehicle jump-starter and portable power bank”, which is exactly what the Viatek’s new Pocket Jump does. You can back on Kickstarter for as low as $40 or get two for $70.

You can stack the two halves to make a level trivet to keep hot pots and pans off your counter. But while you’re waiting for your food to heat up, separate the parts and place them upright on your table to make a ping pong net. A round of table tennis while you wait?

Vanished like an aging teen pop idol. Well it’s back- sort of. Now you can buy a Flappy Bird Plush, a softer and cuter version of the game’s hero. The cool thing about this 8″ wide bird is that you can never really lose (unless you’re really uncoordinated).

This prototype still has its power-pack on the outside, making it vulnerable to immersion, acid and other depredations, but the next step involves sealing all the good stuff within the robot's soft body. In experiments, Tolley's robot was able to walk through a snowstorm with temperatures reaching -9 °C, withstand flames for 20 seconds, resist water and acids as well as having its limbs driven over by a…

When reached for comment about South Korea's robot pilot, North Korea informed me they already have robots flying commercial flights, and recently welcomed the safe return of a pair of autonomous robot astronauts who traveled to the surface…

The pool's central well reaches a depth of 40-meters (~131-feet) and is used for deep-sea diving practice. The pool also features several underwater viewing areas (including a clear tunnel) and is filled with spa water kept at 32 - 34°C (~90°F). That's nice and toasty. Still, 131-feet deep? How high is the high dive, a mile? Because I jumped off the highest Olympic diving platform once and I'm pretty sure I…

You have to be sitting right beside it to hear it. As always, when a problem occurs, industry is quick to find solutions.

  • Rapid Heat Ceramic Glue Gun

    Over the years I’ve owned half a dozen glue guns, ranging from $6 craft guns up to $120 semi pro guns. They dribbled glue, took forever to heat up, and couldn’t output much glue. That last issue is a big problem for big projects – you have to use the glue while it’s hot and if the gun can’t quickly output all the glue you need then you can’t stick the parts together. I was skeptical that the DeWalt could possibly be as good as the package claimed: “heats up 50% faster,” “outputs 50 4-inch glue sticks per hour.” That’s 1.2…

Hinges, cabinet pulls, shelf brackets, anything you need to fasten to a piece of wood, this bit prevents the tip from wandering so countersunk screws will seat perfectly.

  • Fabricor Stain-proof Apron

    Marcel Sim
    23 Sep 2014 | 5:06 am
    An Australian startup company is using a patented nanotechnology to create a ‘hydrophobic’ chef jacket and apron. Fabricor says this means dry, stain-free uniforms at the end of the day. The nanotechnology application works by modifying the fabric at a molecular level by permanently attaching hydrophobic ‘whiskers’ to individual fibres which elevate liquids, causing them to bead up and roll off the fabric surface. Fabricor’s products are not made with spray-application like many on the market which can destroy fabrics and contain carcinogenic chemical. Its hydrophobic properties are…

  • The Handheld Head and Neck Massager will help rid your muscles of tension

    23 Sep 2014 | 1:00 pm
    It’s easy to get your muscles knotted up. We stress out about work, school, home, and all the things we do in our free time (if we have any), and that often balls up our muscles to the point of becoming painful. You can go get a massage from a professional, but that’s going to be a very hefty bill after a few visits. Of course, if your pain is specific to one or two places, you could always get an electronic massager at home that will do the same work for a fraction of the price. The Handheld Head and Neck Massager is a small rubber-tipped massager that can help to loosen your…

  • Long range Turkish electric car hits the road

    23 Sep 2014 | 2:55 pm
    A team from Istanbul University's Electrical and Electronic Engineering department have created an electric car that travelled 2500 kilometres with just $17 worth of electricity. They are driving it around Turkey to test it in all sorts of road and weather conditions. With petrol in Turkey costing about $2.18 per litre, going the same distance in a regular car would cost anywhere between $275-$450 depending on fuel efficiency! The "T-1" can do 500 Km on only 4 hours of charge. It weighs 500 Kg and can reach speeds of 130 Km/h. More info at…

  • Magic Eraser Works Like Magic

    30 Mar 2014 | 1:03 pm
    My boy put Angry Bird stickers all over his computer when we first gave it to him. He is no longer obsessed with Angry Birds. Angry Birds are for little kids now, and he took off all the stickers. Even though we gave him some Goo Gone, there was still some horrible, sticky residue. The residue stayed there and we pretty much resigned ourselves to a disgusting computer until my husband tried a Magic Eraser on it. The result was… magical, to say the least. We couldn’t believe how well it worked to remove the dirt AND the sticky residue. If you are dealing with sticker goo on your…

First, I made this Gravel Path. It was alright, but it looked a little like it was floating on top of things instead of an actual path. This Earthy Paver is a little better. It just didn’t work with my new Winter Wonderland, so I created this Snowy Paver and I like it MUCH better. Now, I have new paths in my town and I can share them with the world so everyone can enjoy them. If you would like to visit my…

    23 Sep 2014 | 8:06 am
    It’s an exciting time for the advertising and marketing technology world.  WPP recently acquired up to 25% of Appnexus, Millennial Media just acquired Nexage, and Mozilla recently announced it was entering the advertising landscape (self promotion, I know). I’ve participated in this ecosystem for a while now and have some big hairy questions for us all going forward.  I think we should spend some time trying to think these questions through as an industry because we are all going to face it them. What happens when we have five closed ecosystems? You know, Google, Amazon, Apple, Baidu…

    Kickstarter has updated its terms of use to emphasize that those who use Kickstarter to fund their project must actually, you know, complete the project. Creators are also expected to fulfill each reward. It is only after a creator has done so that they’ve satisfied their obligation to their backers. Of course, this is referring to projects that have been fully funded by backers (not the ones that didn’t raise enough to get fully funded). A key point is that the creator of a project has a legal obligation to the people who back the project on Kickstarter. Unsatisfied backers can…

  • Casey Neistat Deserves Thanks for His Film on iPhone 6 Launch Day in NYC

    Dave Aiello
    23 Sep 2014 | 7:26 am
    Yesterday I talked about the Chinese regulatory delays that created the conditions necessary for a gray market in iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices to flourish. I felt like this information added context to Casey Neistat's film, and was worthy of a full blog post here. Some other prominent bloggers agreed. For instance, my post was discussed in a full article on The Loop. This greatly helped get the ideas I expressed into the larger discussion about Neistat's film, which I greatly appreciated. I think you can raise issues like the delayed network access license in the People's Republic of China…

    Casey Neistat created a 6 1/2 minute film called Black Market Takes Over the iPhone 6 Lines that shows portions of what happened at the Apple Store SoHo and other Apple stores in Manhattan on the day before and the day of the iPhone 6 release. The film focuses on a number of people of Asian descent who do not appear to speak English waiting in line to purchase iPhones. The purchase pattern illustrated was that these buyers bought iPhones (presumably unlocked models) for cash and then, almost immediately and in the vicinity of the Apple Store, apparently sold these phones to other people for…
  • Why Plugging an iPhone in to Use the "Hey Siri" Feature Makes Sense

    Dave Aiello
    19 Sep 2014 | 8:42 pm
    Let's say we are in a room full of iPhones. If "Hey Siri" could be enabled by default without a constraint like having the phone plugged in to power, when one of us said, "Hey Siri," all of the iOS devices in the room would start listening and responding at the same time. It may be true that the "Hey Siri" feature in iOS 8 is primarily configured the way it is in order to not kill the user's battery. But, that configuration works well in several use cases: In the living room of an iPhone user's home.. In the car where there is only one (or two) charging points. In someone's office.

    Some of you may know that I am using an iPhone 4s temporarily because I broke my 5s about a week ago. I upgraded the 4s I'm using to iOS 8 this afternoon, and the performance of the 4s feels about the same to me under the new operating system as it did under iOS 7. It is not quite as fast, but it is still definitely usable. Overall user experience is better, because there are new features of iOS 8 that are accessible by 4s users. Examples are: standard iOS 8 keyboard with QuickType, the "Hey Siri" feature, Notification Center widgets, Recent and Favorite contacts in the App Switcher. I think…

Here's Part 2 of Charlie Rose's interview with Apple CEO Tim Cook: I thought that the most interesting part of the second part of this interview was right near the beginning, about 3 minutes in, where he talks about privacy of customer data. I believe him when he says: How do companies make their money? Follow the money. And if they are making money mainly by collecting gobs of personal data, I think you have a right to be worried.

    So, it’s the end at last, is it? It’s been an interesting last 15 years but Microsoft’s Windows Live Messenger is finally reaching the end of the road. Not too long ago anyone who had a long distance relationship or had moved away from friends and family would have had this chat service as one of their main methods of communication. However, after a long and drawn out period of decline it is finally being switched off in China in October. The service was first brought out in 1999 under the name of MSN Messenger, and was a basic chat service. At the time it was up against rivals AIM and…

Their work was based on asking questions of 50,000 users of Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites. They…

    In a unique combination of high functionality, minimalist design and intuitive use, the YOHANN iPad stand is one of the few to grab attention. Despite being incredibly simple, the single piece props your tablet at 3 different viewing angles in landscape or portrait mode, on any surface or even on your lap. Available in a glassfiber-reinforced polymer covered in white or black piano lacquer finish as well as handcrafted wood versions, this stylish stand is one (if not the only) to add to the iPad’s desirability.

The concept, while a tad silly is very efficient and simple. Just slide in your iPad Air or iPhone 6, plug in your earphones, and slide the gear over your head and you’re set. Immediately you are inside immersive Retina-quality virtual reality environments where you can do God knows what. There is only one downside to this, that you will look like a crazy otaku, but who cares since there is no other way you get a VR set at this price,…

Since I make tutorial videos for a living, and am a bit of a sadist, I've watched this thing through several times. Since I took piano lessons from an ancient wispy grandma years ago, I can't really tell if a noob could really pick up how to play the instrument from this tape, but that's not going to stop Jay Levy from trying. The tape opens up with Jay in a studio complementing the band, until - surprise! - the "band" turns out to be a single…

A big part of my job is dealing with cutting edge gear, but a lot of the time I get to indulge a bit of retro geekery; putting old lenses onto new cameras. Reusing old glass is easy, and often pretty cheap. The lens adapters don't cost that much, and the lenses often are nickels on the dollar compared to their original prices. Most of my work is in video, and recently I picked up a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera which features a "Super 16" sized sensor. The micro four-thirds lens mount is easy to…

Cameron is a virtuoso organist who has eschewed the stuffy image of a concertizing musician for a bit of rock flair. In the video we see his new touring organ, a massive machine built to his demanding spec. The astonishing instrument is his response to the limits on a touring organist forced to use different instruments in different venues, instead of building a relationship with a single instrument. He is also very…

The zombie-themed show seems like an unusual pick for Stern, but perhaps the wild panic of trying to avoid a zombie hoard isn't that much different from the quest not to lose your balls. Well, except for the flesh eating bit.  The machine is available in two editions: the $5995 Pro and the more advanced $8595 LE (shown above). Each looks fantastic, but the LE includes a variety of gameplay bonuses such as some "Well Walker"…

  • Your USB Car Charger Is Boring, This Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger Isn’t

    17 Sep 2014 | 12:02 am
    ThinkGeek originally added a Flux Capacitor to their lineup as an April Fools’ gag, now they have brought out a real product – though this one won’t help you travel through time. The Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger, which features two 2.1A USB ports, will hit ThinkGeek’s virtual shelves on September 18. Personally, I am not overly fond of my car, or driving, and anything to make the ever-lengthening daily commute a little less soul-destroying is welcome. Price: $25

    How does the iPhone 6 stack up against the latest crop of “gaming phones”? Not very well, it seems. In a test of 135 currently-available smartphone models, Apple’s new handset came an embarrassing 17th – cue the snickers from Windows Phone and Android fanboys. But does it really matter? This author, for one, thinks not. The top two spots are both Nokia Lumia models, which edge out a Sony Xperia Z2. The Samsung Galaxy S5 packs an impressive punch, it comes in at fourth place. Below that, the Pantech Vega Secret Note, the Asus PadPhone Infinity, eight different Xperia Z1…

VZ4K is designed specifically for iOS7 on the iPhone 5S. It is not compatible with iOS8. So how does it get around the whole 1080p video cap?

    In case you hadn’t heard, Apple has a couple new phones, and they finally listened to their customers and made them bigger – but is there really all that much more going on beyond the bigger screens? Yes and no. Design: At 4.7 and 5.5 inches (as opposed to 4 inches for the iPhone 5), respectively, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have considerably more real estate than their predecessors. They are also a bit thinner, with the iPhone 6 coming in at 6.9 mm (let’s just call it 7 mm) and the iPhone 6 Plus coming in at 7.1 mm (let’s also call it 7 mm). The iPhone 5 and 5S…

Don’t get me wrong, I play Just Dance and I find many of the routines borderline juvenile and WTF. I mean, have you seen the Tetris dance for Just Dance 2015?

  • Beats Music may be rebranded

    Stuff Staff
    23 Sep 2014 | 3:36 am
    According to a report by Recode, Beats Music may not be long for this world – but in name only. Apparently, new owner Apple is thinking about dropping the original name, perhaps in favor of merging the service within iTunes. Beats Music has been relatively well received for its recommendation engine, but has reportedly only netted a few hundred thousand subscribers. Apple hasn’t put much focus on the service since the acquisition and doesn’t have a stream-on-demand music service itself, so perhaps “Beats” will live on only on headphones before long.

The iOS 8 update requires a 1.4GB download, but beyond that, you’ll need 5.7GB of available storage space to complete installation on an iPhone or iPod touch, and a whopping 6.9GB of space on an iPad. By all indications, the myriad enhancements and additions seen in iOS 8 make it a very worthwhile upgrade, but if you’re in no rush, maybe give it a couple days – servers have…

    Following on from the hugely successful The International 4 tournament this summer, Valve's Dota 2 is soon going to get one of its biggest makeovers since its release. The headline figure for patch 6.82 is the Shadow Fiend hero, who's getting a big cosmetic redesign, but there are more important changes afoot on the map upon which this game of swashbuckling and sorcery is played. Unlike most online multiplayer games, Dota 2 is played on only a single asymmetric map, and familiarity with its nuances is part the game's strategic depth. The Roshan pit has been repositioned slightly, along with…
  • Liam Neeson has 'Tak3n' things 2 far

    Ross Miller
    23 Sep 2014 | 2:19 pm
    Next summer: Liam Neeson has been wronged and has a particular set of skills to make things right — by any (violent) means necessary. In Taken, he killed 31. In Taken 2, he killed 20. In Tak3n... wait, we need to talk about the name. According to USA Today, Taken 3 is Tak3n. As in, the number 3 is a fair substitute for both uppercase and lowercase 'E.' It's time to set some guidelines: Can replace either "one" or "won" (Willy 1nka and the Chocolate Factory). Can also be used to replace the letters "I" or "L," especially when you're expecting this to be first in a film series (T1tanic) To,…
  • Microsoft's Chromecast competitor is Miracast-powered, costs $60

    Chris Welch
    23 Sep 2014 | 1:42 pm
    Google clearly landed on a fantastic formula when it built Chromecast, and that product's standout success has led other companies to push out their own HDMI dongles in recent months. Roku's got its $49.99 Streaming Stick, and now Microsoft is trying to create a worthy competitor with the brand new Wireless Display Adapter. No, names don't get much more generic than that. But Microsoft's device shares a lot in common with Chromecast. Its primary purpose is sending something you're viewing on a smartphone, tablet, or laptop to the TV screen (or a projector, since Microsoft is also targeting…

    23 Sep 2014 | 1:09 pm
    Lost turns 10 this week, and you know what? After 10 years of watching the show and nursing my bruised fandom, I think I can confidently say that it, as a show and apparent exemplar of the Golden Age of Television, is utterly broken. There, I said it. I’ve said as much in lengthy conversations with friends. I’ve said so to Damon Lindeloff himself in my deepest, darkest dreams. You’ve probably thought much the same. But I have to also admit that, even knowing all of this, I’m still watching after all these years. (To be perfectly honest, I’m mid rewatch right now.) Why can’t I quit…

    We've taken Apple's newest iPhones all the way to Iceland to see how well they stack up against last year's model, but what about the original iPhone — and maybe everything in between? That's just what Camera+ app-maker and photographer Lisa Bettany has done with all eight of Apple's iPhone models thus far (except for last year's iPhone 5C) to show the difference a year — or seven — makes in terms of camera hardware.

    There is virtually no small business owner out there who doesn’t dream of expanding into something larger, even if it means just one other store. After all, in most cases, the more you grow, the more revenue you generate. However, the urge to expand is never enough to actually do so. As the cliché goes, it is going to take blood, sweat, and tears to successfully accomplish that. All the best things do, right? While each business venture is different, there is a generic framework that always seems to be at play for the most part. I will try to break that framework down for you below: Your…
  • How Technology Has Transformed the Traditional Game of Bingo

    Bingo’s a game that’s as old as the hills. Well, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but if you think of a traditional game, bingo is always on the list. It’s a game that many of us have grown up knowing about, even if we’ve never actually played it and don’t really know the rules of how to play. For many years, the only place you could really play bingo was in a bingo hall. In many towns, the bingo hall was as much of an institution as the cinema and the pub. Otherwise you might go to a bingo night as a fundraiser at the kids’ primary school and many other community…

Whether it is crying kids, hectic work schedule or housework that just keeps piling up, it seems that my mind is constantly boggled almost to the place of totally being insane at times.

  • Apple Watch – Love It, Hate It, Too Soon To Say?

    Chad Felix
    17 Sep 2014 | 11:18 am
    Most people don’t understand the new Apple Watch. They’ve tended to write it off in that kneejerk reactionary way – metaphorically folding their arms, looking a bit curmudgeonly and harrumphing at the new technology. It’s too thick, it’s too expensive, I don’t need one – it won’t catch on, etcetera, etcetera. But the people saying this simply don’t understand its true potential. Sure Apple Watch may well be consigned to the technological dustbin of history alongside the Betamax video player, the Sinclair C5 and a whole host of other historical techy oddities (which are all…

    They could have done so much more when they decided to turn a ticking time bomb into a kitchen timer. I think rather than twisting the center people should be able to pull the fuse to set it. And then with each passing minute the fuse would retract a little more until time's up. And then the bomb would brrrrring! and vibrate violently. And then explode. As it stands this bomb is just a globe with the rudimentary capability of tracking time in 60-minute increments and telling my mama when the apple-plum pie with streusel topping she's making me is done. I guess that's OK too though.

As shown here in GIF form, Seatylock is a modular bicycle saddle that converts to a 1-meter solid lock. Obviously, Seatylocks incorporate into the core of a bike's center of gravity. This eliminates the feel of carrying an attached U-lock, as well as ensures you'll never forget your lock at home. And if you forget your…

So Dutch brand Vencer's supercar, the Sarthe MY2015, has a fair bit going for it even before we find out its engineering thumbs its nose at the current trends of hybrid tech and electronic driver interfaces in favor of 80s aesthetics and analog functionality. In addition to the raw power and agility it exhibits when put to the test, the Vencer Sarthe aims to be an everyday driver's car for…

Though I would think it's really only intended for wear during cold-weather camping trips or some kind of survivalist adventure, or possibly while hostel hopping. Not at work for emergency nap time as the Japanese suggest in their photos. Then again, the coveralls and their accompanying air mat were created by King Jim, an office supplies brand, and maybe sleeping under your…

The Brigadier is packed full of features to make it dust proof, water proof, and drop proof. One of it’s more notable features is a Sapphire display.

When Steve Jobs passed, everyone knew that Cook would take the reigns. But there was a lot of speculation about how that would change the company, and what aspects of the brand image might shift under the influence of a new mind.

Now Microsoft has bought the company who produced it, Mojang, along with the rights to the game itself. That isn’t a good thing. When details of the Xbox One came out, it was pretty controversial.

    (This article is an update to my ongoing quest to build an arduino powered, internet connected, weather station.  If you’re not familiar with Arduino, it might not be the one for you, but there’s plenty of other stuff here!) I went out to a hobby shop this afternoon to purchase some craft equipment to allow me to construct a really awful stand for a servo (that wasn’t my intent – just the end product!)  I’m using the servo motor that came with the arduino starter kit and attempting to prove to myself how straightforward it will be to display the weather data on…

After great success last weekend, I decided to tackle what I thought would be the biggest challenge – but actually turned out to be the simplest.   I’d connected up a bunch of sensors and a single I2C/wire sensor and I was wondering how I would connect up multiple I2C wire sensors.  I knew that wire libraries address each sensor by a unique…

Flush with the success of yesterday, I had two sensors left to…
