    Take a look at these indoor/outdoor pieces of furniture. While they may look like normal chairs and a table made entirely out of molded concrete, each piece has a little something unexpected that’s pretty awesome. Do you see it? Here’s a hint: it’s green. I’m not just talking about the color green though, there’s literally greenery growing out of each one. Each one has a built-in pocket designed to hold living plants. The chair has a pocket atop each of it’s legs as does this fantastic looking Queen Anne style table below (which also has more spots along…
  • The Trivet That’s Also a Ping Pong Net

    This trivet converts into a ping pong net. That makes no sense at all and all the sense in the world. Because why not? The CorkNet is made out of… cork, naturally. 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? Bet you can’t do that with a macrame trivet your kid made in camp this summer (actually you probably sorta could…) Smartly the CorkNet has a…

    Remember Flappy Bird, the frustratingly difficult game where you move a bird up and down through a course of Super Mario-like pipes? It was the biggest game in the IOS app store and then poof! 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). Hold the bird in your hand and let him flap up, down, even sideways and always avoid the obstacles in your home or office.

    Watches have been around for centuries and have evolved over the years in terms of its mechanism and its design. With the entrance of smartwatches, tech companies are hoping that their new wearables will pave the way for a new standard. Of course there are some who believe that regular watches will remain separate from smartwatches. After all not everyone needs to be connected all the time, right? However there are some who believe that this could be the future, such as Elmar Mock who was the co-inventor of the Swatch watch. In a recent interview, Mock seems to think that smartwatches could…

    With the amount of money that Apple is making and the pile of cash they are sitting on, it is no surprise that they are constantly being targeted by patent trolls who are hoping to make a quick buck by forcing Apple to settle patent infringement lawsuits. So far we’ve seen one or two patent trolls succeed, while others have failed. However it seems that this has not stopped Secure Web Conference Corporation from trying their luck anyway. The company which is based out of Melville, New York, has recently filed a complaint against Apple, claiming that the Cupertino company had infringed upon…

    As NVIDIA launched its new Geforce GTX 970 and GeForce GTX 980 graphics processors (GPUs), its “Demo team” has taken a stab at solving one of the big controversial stories of the century: was the lunar landing real or fake? There is ample literature on the subject and there is no shortage of reasons why some people think that the lunar landing and mission was shot in a studio. One of the main arguments of conspiracy theorists was that the lighting seemed wrong in the scene where Armstrong comes out of the lunar module. It was suggested that there was a light next to the camera, which…

However given that both phones are of different sizes and different prices, is there a particular model that might be more appealing than the other? Well according to an early report from MixPanel (via TechCrunch), it looks like the iPhone 6 is outselling the iPhone 6 Plus.

  • Apple Watch Charging Stands Already Up For Pre-Order

    19 Sep 2014 | 6:26 pm
    The Apple Watch has been pegged for a release in 2015 and one of the advantages that the device has over most smartwatches is that it charges by connecting a charger to the back of it that sticks to the device via a magnet, much like the MagSafe adapters used in the MacBooks. This makes it easier to charge the device versus more traditional chargers that need to be plugged in. Now if you had plans to get your hands on an Apple Watch when it is released next year, you might be interested to learn that the folks at Dodocase have created a dock for the Apple Watch that you can sort of pre-order…

      There’s nothing like some good ol’ food porn to wind the week down, and what we’ve got here definitely qualifies. It’s pepperoni pizza with a big twist: instead of boring dough, the crust is made out of french fries! That probably ups the calories by a couple thousand or so, but one bite and you’ll probably forget about your diet or your pledge to eat healthier. A lot of people have tried but failed to make a french fry dough. The folks over at Foodinese finally figured out how to do it and the solution was pretty simple: hold it together with cheese. Lots…

  • 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…

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.

    19 Sep 2014 | 4:55 pm
    To no one's surprise, Burger King's all black burger looks like a disgusting turd in real life. Actually, it might be even worse than some turds. It looks like it tastes like ash. It looks like it's made from burnt cardboard. It looks like it'll bring death to anyone who dare eats it.Read more...

  • 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…

I’m not just talking about the color green though, there’s literally greenery growing out of each one. Each one has a built-in pocket designed to hold living plants.

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). Hold the bird in your hand and let him flap up, down, even sideways and always avoid the obstacles in your home or office.

  • Rubbery, crawling robot can traverse snow, fire

    Harvard's Michael Tolley created the 65cm long, soft, pneumatic robot whose operating parameters allow it to run over -9'C terrain or walk through naked flames (for 20 seconds, at least). 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…

But it’s not-quite-realized: It’s awkward, a bit disorienting and, well, the demo I’m looking at is a music video of a particularly bland English electronic act called Disclosure, playing live at a festival.

    19 Sep 2014 | 1:30 pm
    This is a fly-by of J.J. Abram's Millennium Falcon for the new Star Wars movie. Apparently J.J. and Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder like poking fun at each other via Twitter (I guess that's how you get your kicks when you're a rich, successful director instead of hunting humans like I suspected), so he included a little Batmobile attached to the underbelly of the Falcon at the end of the video. No word if the Batmobile Easter egg will appear on the big screen, but I certainly hope not because that would totally ruin the realism of the entire Star Wars galaxy for me. "Seriously?" No, I…

That's 2,400 donuts. And apparently one lucky company is going to win all these donuts, although hopefully sooner than later because the half-life of a donut is like 8 hours. One time I ate a 4-day old donut from Dunkin' Donuts. Never again. Fine, I'd do it again, but I'd have to be just as hungover and the box would still have to be mostly closed like when I dug it out of the trash last time. Keep going for one more…

  • Rapid Heat Ceramic Glue Gun

    19 Sep 2014 | 2:00 am
    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…

    This might seem like a bit of a specialty tool, but for a homeowner or finish carpenter, it makes installing any kind of fixture a snap. “Vix” is a brand name for the S.E. Vick company, more generically it’s a “self-centering” drill bit, and they make a few different sizes, but I’ve only ever used the smaller one — need a bigger hole? Use it as a pilot bit. 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. I first encountered these as a…

    In theory, corkscrews are great tools. In practice, however, they’re often either challenging to use, over-engineered, or prohibitively expensive. But as I opened a bottle of wine on New Year’s Eve, I realized that the Quirky Verseur is by far the easiest, fastest corkscrew I’ve ever used. Simply slide the flared plastic tube of this odd-looking device over the top of the wine bottle, squeeze gently to hold it in place, insert the corkscrew until the tip pierces the cork, and and start turning clockwise. The cork comes out with hardly any effort. No pulling, no prying, nothing but a…

    We have been hands-on with the iPhone 6 Plus and found it gets really hot when charging. While we’ve not had time to give Apple’s first phablet a full review, the heat produced from iPhone 6 Plus when charging seemed enough to fry an egg. The latest Apple smartphone will get warm in different circumstances...

  • 3D Car In 6 Days

    16 Sep 2014 | 9:39 am
    You can probably get quite a bit done by yourself in six days time, but could you build an entire car from scratch and take it for a test drive? Probably not. The folks at Local Motors are pretty confident that their 3D-printed car can roll out of Chicago’s McCormick Place and go for a spin this Sunday, though. Printing started a few days ago at the International Manufacturing Technology Show in The Windy City, using carbon-reinforced plastic and a Big Area Additive Manufacturing printer, according to 3DPrint. Not everything on the car can be 3D printed mind you, that’d just be…

It works on the principle of evaporation. Water from the upper chambers drips down the side, and gets evaporated taking away heat from the inside , leaving the chambers cool. The top upper chamber is used to store water. A small lid made from clay is provided on top. A small faucet tap is also provided at the front lower end of chamber to tap out the water for drinking use. In the lower chamber, two shelves are…

      There is a lot of pressure in life. You should always be working harder, striving more, and balancing 15 different situations at once. It’s no wonder that we constantly feel like we need a break. You don’t always have to go to a spa or on vacation just to take a load off of your mind.

If you’d prefer to snuggle up somewhere, and have always enjoyed sitting on a swing, then you might like the Hanging Tent. This is a cone shaped tent made of tear-proof nylon that can hang from a…

While you can grate your butter, heat it manually, or just sit it out and wait, there are very fast ways to get things done that will still give you an even spread. Everyone’s passionate about something, right? Everyone handles the dairy aspect a little differently, but Warburton’s conducted a poll with a little under three thousand people and found the most common practices…

    I like an immersive gaming experience, but most surround sound systems seem to  place the sound about eight feet in front of the listener, which I guess, works for most TV shows and movies, but with my favorite first person shooter games the sound is supposed to be coming from my character, footsteps, breathing, and the all important, spent shells hitting the ground…  Well, the folks over at Turtle Beach thought of everything.

    When it comes to the choice of gaming peripherals for hardcore gamers, they can be rather particular about the make and type, and brand loyalty, too, would play an extremely big role in influencing their final decision. Having said that, if you love playing console games that have been ported over to the PC, or titles on the PC platform that would work better with a typical console game controller compared to a keyboard and mouse setup, perhaps it is time you consider picking up the Xbox One Controller + Cable for Windows. Arriving later this coming November, this is a Windows 7 and Windows…

    I guess the name of the Leef Ice USB 3.0 Drives more or less gives the game away, allowing you to look as cool as possible. I know that USB flash drives are dime a dozen these days, and while majority of the more modern ones will arrive to offer USB 3.0 compatibility, the differentiating factor between one and the other boils down to the overall design. Having said that, the Leef Ice USB 3.0 Drives are beautifully designed, as it comes in a no-nonsense form factor unlike the Message in a Bottle USB drive.

  • Magic Eraser Works Like Magic

    Laura Moncur
    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…

It’s like Napoleon Dynamite said, Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills. It’s true, so if you’re thinking that all this time you spend learning how to code is wasted on us girls, it’s NOT. We notice when you use a quick keyboard shortcut instead of the menu. We notice when you can type 70 wpm. We notice and to be honest, it makes us feel a little flushed. PostSecret‘s beneficiary…

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…

  • Using NFC For The First Time

    18 Sep 2014 | 1:25 pm
    NFC, short for Near Field Communication, is a technological set of standards that has been around for several years. Many Android phones have come equipped with NFC chips for several years. Some retailers along with fast food outlets such as McDonald’s support NFC transactions on every credit card reader. My first NFC-enabled phone was a Galaxy S3, but I never felt compelled to even give it a try. For some reason I made the completely erroneous assumption that if I paid with my phone via NFC it would be charged to my phone bill. Since Apple is now supporting NFC with the introduction of the…

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.
  • iPhone 4s Performance Under iOS 8 is Good

    Dave Aiello
    17 Sep 2014 | 8:11 pm
    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…
  • Tim Cook on Privacy

    17 Sep 2014 | 8:24 am
    Update: This article was published about 12 hours before Apple published A message from Tim Cook about Apple's commitment to your privacy. 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. And you should really…
  • Apple Watch is Said to Easily Support Use by Left-Handed People

    Dave Aiello
    10 Sep 2014 | 9:58 am
    One of the first things that my son Jimmy asked about when he saw the film previewing the Apple Watch was, "Will I be able to use it?" Jimmy is left-handed. My reaction was to say that you can probably turn the face 180 degrees, and swap the top and bottom connectors between the Watch and the Watch's strap, and it would work on your right wrist. This was confirmed by John Gruber, in a tweet from last night: Left-handers: You can just turn Apple Watch upside down (and swap straps around) and it'll just work. -- John Gruber (@gruber) September 10, 2014
  • Will The Apple Watch Change Us the Way Other iOS Devices Have?

    Dave Aiello
    10 Sep 2014 | 8:18 am
    Maybe you were blown away by Apple's announcements yesterday: iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and Apple Watch. Wait, what? We were ready for the introduction of a wearable device. Some people were sure it was a watch. Some people thought it was the iWatch. It turned out to be the Apple Watch. What do you think of it? Here's what I think: The utility of the Apple Watch comes down to user experience in third party apps. If existing iOS apps translate well to the Watch, I'm in. -- Dave Aiello (@daveaiello) September 10, 2014 The two sentences above are all that fits in a single tweet. The truth is that…

    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…
  • Does Social Media Make You Trust People Less?

    If you enjoy using social media sites then is it something that you think is a good thing for your life or not? There have been a number of interesting studies on the effects of social media recently. However, the latest one suggests that using these sites might make us trust others less. The research was carried out by Francesco Sarracino from STATEC – which is the government statistics agency from Luxembourg – together with Fabio Sabitini from Sapienza University in Rome. Their work was based on asking questions of 50,000 users of Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites. They…

    With any new iPhone model, there is always that initial rush, a period of time when demand exceeds supply. Sometimes this is due to Apple not having enough initial stock at the time of release and at other times, this is due to the supply chain being unable to manufacture enough units.

  • Introducing AirVR, the Silliest Virtual Reality Gear

    16 Sep 2014 | 9:30 pm
    Virtual Reality is awesome, but the Oculus Rift is expensive. For those of you with an iPad Air or an iPhone 6, you can grab the AirVR for a measly $49. 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,…
  • Apple’s New Retina iMac to Sport a 5K Screen

    12 Sep 2014 | 10:23 pm
    Remember a few days ago when we said forget about 4K? Well guess who follows suit? If it’s not obvious from the title of this post, it’s Apple. Taiwan display research firm WitsView said in a press release that Apple is cooking up a Retina iMac with a 27-inch 5K display. While there is no confirmation this group is usually head on with their predictions. They also believe that Apple’s 5K Retina iMac will launch by the end of the 4th quarter this year. A 5K screen with a Mac behind it may just be what the world needs, but if not then you can create your own configuration and…
  • Internet for Farmers via Unused UHF Spectrum

    10 Sep 2014 | 7:20 pm
    The holy grail of wireless communications is to go both fast and far. Usually, you can have one or the other but not both. Wireless local area networks today can serve data very fast, but one brick wall and they’re done. UHF can travel far, but it hasn’t had the high capacity of WiFi. ~ Edward Knightly, professor and chair of Rice’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Researchers from Rice University’s Wireless Network Group recently found a way to make use of a slice of the radio spectrum that is traditionally reserved for TV broadcasts – generally known as…
  • Huawei to Produce the Coolest Android Wear Smartwatch in 2015

    6 Sep 2014 | 10:38 pm
    If you notice lately, we here at have been rather obsessed with wearable tech. An it looks like Huawei is also jumping on the same boat. Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu revealed that the company is planning to release an Android Wear-powered smartwatch in 2015. This won’t be the first time Huawei attempts on a wearable device, but their previously released TalkBand (pictured above) was a tad primitive and was not based on Android Wear. Unfortunately no details were revealed on the upcoming smartwatch, but Yu promises that it would be a thing of beauty and innovation, that…

    One of the things it’s important to remember is the fact that wireless networking connections (especially public WiFi) are inherently insecure, which means it’s pretty easy for people with a bit of tech skill to tap into your connection and spy on your stuff. The golden rule is never do anything on public WiFi that’s super sensitive (like banking etc), just in case. But there are ways to reduced the risks.

  • Destiny – PS4 review

    SJ Hollis
    19 Sep 2014 | 6:10 am
    A week after the release of one of the most anticipated games of the year, the reviews for Destiny are starting to tumble in. They’re not quite what we were expecting, are they? Less “Whoooo, best game EVAH!” and more “Meh”. Expectations were high and it seems the reality couldn’t quite stretch up to it. These situations always make me wonder if some of the negative reactions would have been more positive had we not worked ourselves into a frenzy of anticipation. It’s Watch Dogs all over again. To make my stance very clear straight away, I don’t think Destiny is a bad game. I…

    A rather large box arrived for me yesterday and inside it was Musical Fidelity’s latest integrated top-end amplifier – the M6si. After wrestling with the 21.5KG package I managed to get inside. I am definitely going to take my time to review this amp and allow it to get settled and warmed up so, I thought I might show you a bit of an unboxing in the meantime. The external packing carton was your usual brown affair and the MF box was their usual, understatedly classy, mostly white job. The amp was well packed, as it should be to account for the extra 5KG!

    If, like me, you have a soft spot for Panasonic’s range of Lumix cameras, this new smartphone should be of interest. Say hello to the Panasonic Lumix DMC-CM1 cameraphone. The DMC-CM1 is quite an interesting beast and before you shout out that it’s just like the Galaxy K Zoom there are a number of important differences. The Panasonic DMC-CM1 appears to be more camera than phone, just as you would expect given Panasonic’s strengths in the digital photography market. The less we say about their foray in to the mobile phone market the better. The DMC-CM1 packs a 1-inch, 20MP…

    17 Sep 2014 | 10:56 am
    I have a strange love for Casio keyboards... the more pathetic sounding, the better. Years ago I found a VHS tutorial video put out by Casio in 1989. 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…
  • Classic 16mm Bolex Lenses On A Modern Camera

    16 Sep 2014 | 11:38 am
    One of my clients is Fotodiox, a manufacturer of kerjillions of camera accessories and lights. 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…

    I have to admit that I didn't think that Cameron Carpenter was a genuine person. The video has more than a few mockumentary style moments, but no... this guy is the real deal. 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"…

    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…

Square Enix has a new trailer out for Final Fantasy XV – originally announced as Final Fantasy Versus XIII way back in 2006 – with the Tokyo Game Show about to kick off, and it offers a couple minutes of cut-scenes and gameplay alike to soak in. After the disappointment of the actual Final Fantasy XIII (and FFXIV being an online-only game), this upcoming PlayStation 4 and Xbox One looks pretty promising, with a more modern-day setting found alongside the familiar character designs of Tetsuya Nomura.

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…

Leading the pack is the new Kindle Fire HD, which now comes in both 6in and 7in variants, with the former diving into impulse buy territory with a price tag of just US$99 with special offers for an 8GB model.

    7 Sep 2014 | 1:18 pm
    (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…
  • Multiple I2C (Wire) sensors

    7 Sep 2014 | 9:36 am
    (This forms part of the ongoing arduino weather station project and if you’re not familiar with arduino, might be a bit impenetrable…  as an alternative, have a look at my review of Chromecast or the comments on smartwatches!) 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…
  • Wire fetish (Bats)

    I’ve concluded I have a wire fetish.  Not a sexual kink but there’s something about the acquisition of useful wires!  My ‘wire box’ contains every single type  wire and interconnect I think I’ve ever needed.  It’s quite a big box now… I’ve been tinkering with Arduino for a little while now and been suffering a little jealousy on my interconnect wires (those that came with the starter kit) compared to those I see in the ‘how to’ videos.   I went wild and spent £2.45 on some proper breadboard jumper wires.   I’m now…
  • Pressure & Rainfall

    31 Aug 2014 | 5:13 am
    After the excitement of yesterday, I pressed on, success breeding success it would seem!   Firstly, I was able to quickly get a BMP180 pressure sensor working,  I found a great guide at sparkfun which I was able to use and there was some demo code I was able to run without much drama.    I hadn’t appreciated that (ofcourse!) temperature is needed to measure pressure.  I wonder whether I’ll still need to use the separate temperature sensor I bought and tested in my earlier article – a decision for later. Flush with the success of yesterday, I had two sensors left to…

  • Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GM1 Review

    14 Sep 2014 | 5:27 pm
    The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GM1 is tiny, measuring 58mm from its LCD screen to its lens cap, and it weighs 279g, which is a full 236g less than the DMC-GX7. Given the DMC-GM1’s interchangeable lens mount, its petite design is a phenomenal achievement. Crucially, the DMC-GM1 is the first compact system camera (CSC) with a zoom lens that will fit in many trouser pockets. This extra portability is partly down to the new kit lens, which weighs 70g and extends just 24mm from the lens mount. The kit lens has a 2.7x maximum zoom and a 24-64mm (equivalent) range. It’s good to have a 24mm wide-angle…
