    Last Friday, I was invited to attend Porsche Design’s exclusive event to launch their joint project with Blackberry, the P’9983 at their Hong Kong Central Store. The place was buzzing especially with the open bar and DJ cranking out the tunes. Oh and everyone was mostly dressed in black – it felt and looked like a very chic Porsche Design event! As with most Porsche Design products, the P’9983 is a beautiful device to behold. At 140grams and with a 3.1″ screen, it’s very compact.

  • Verizon Joins The Double Data Race As Well

    It all started with AT&T’s announcement last week that it will be offering double the amount of data to all new and existing subscribers provided that they signed up for this promotion by the end of October. Then they’ll retain the double data for as long as they stayed on that particular plan. Earlier today Sprint retaliated with its own double data promotion and it looks like seeing two of its rivals do the exact same thing didn’t sit well with Verizon, which is why it has jumped in the fray as well. Big Red has just announced a new promotion through which it is going…

    BlackBerry’s new flagship smartphone was released about a week back. It is off to a good start as the company was able to sell more than 200,000 units. The Passport was quickly sold out after release even though its only available in one color option right now: black. The company had already confirmed previously that it would be available in white as well. Customers who have been waiting for the white BlackBerry Passport may very well have to wait until November. During its event the company did not say exactly when the white model will be released. Nevertheless that doesn’t seem…

    They say that everyone has a price, and in a free market, you know that money definitely talks. Throw enough dough in the right direction, and you are more or less sure that there will be someone out there who is willing to get the job done. Google, for instance, is rich in terms of stocks and assets, that it would not be too much of a hassle for the company to reward people who are able to discover bugs in their software and apps, such as what they are doing with the Chrome browser. In fact, it longer the reward program is in place, the more difficult it is to discover vulnerabilities.

      Lapkins are for your lap, while napkis are for your naps…er, okay, so that’s not quite how it works for the latter. Both actually serve the same function, since lapkins are basically napkins with a quirky design. And by quirky, we mean images of underwear, so it’ll look like you’re dining with nothing but your skivvies on. They’re sold in sets of 24 and feature three designs: a pair of men’s briefs, ladies’ undies, and a fig leaf for the daring. The Lapkins are available for $14.

      If you’re too lazy to get a proper costume or make one this Halloween, then go for something outrageous instead. Case in point: this bald eagle mask and eagle talon gloves that will (sort of) transform you into a man-eagle. Both are made from latex and should fit most adult heads and hands, as long as your measurements fall within the average. Finish your look by putting on a shirt bearing our flag’s design. And if you can be bothered to, make a set of wings to go with it.   The bald eagle mask is available for $29.95, while the Eagle Talon gloves retail for $34.95. […
  • For the Unpicturables: Paparazzi Thwarting Reflective Visor

      So this is the paparazzi-thwarting reflective visor. It makes life a living hell for paparazzi because they’ll never be able to take a proper photo of you when you’ve got this on. You probably won’t have much need for this if you aren’t a celebrity, though. Come to think of it, we’re not even sure an actual celebrity would wear it because it’s not exactly fashionable or attractive. But if you care more about your privacy than making a fashion statement, then you should definitely get one of these. The visors are available from Hammacher for…

The Portable was designed to be a wearable phone, so it should bend to follow the natural curve of your arm. It’s also shatterproof and waterproof for up to 10 meters, so you can wear it even when you’re hard at work or play. Portal is built with a multicore CPU that comes with 2GB of RAM. Its 3200 mAh battery is also flexible, as expected, and can last for up to 8 hours of talktime.  Portal is currently…

    Aretha said it best in 1967 The conversation around Internet safety has moved a long way since the 1990s when it focused mostly on porn and predators and we’ve even evolved since 2009 when ConnectSafely published Online Safety 3.0: Empowering and Protecting Youth. Along with colleagues, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about how to position online safety messaging and how to integrate it with offline risks (the overlap is pretty major) and with youth rights — an important part of the discussion that is often missing.

  • iPhone 6 and 6 Plus offer calls via Wi-Fi

    29 Sep 2014 | 7:07 am
    Of all the features of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the one that’s the most important — in some locations — is its ability to make calls via Wi-Fi. That’s because no carrier has 100 percent cellphone coverage and there will always be dead spots that require a “plan B” for those who need to make or receive calls or text messages when they don’t have cellular coverage. It’s also handy when you’re out of the country because it means you can make and receive calls and texts for free on your regular phone number as long as you have a Wi-Fi…

But I don’t travel all the time, and the reason I’ve never been able to use T-Mobile is that I happen to live in a near T-Mobile dead-spot, even though I’m in the middle of Silicon Valley. But now I have a T-Mobile “tower” in my home. Instead of spotty coverage, I now have an extremely strong signal. T-Mobile had introduced Wi-Fi calling a number…

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…

    While Microsoft was busy introducing Windows 10 to the world, Apple released the first OS X Yosemite golden master candidate. Developers and beta testers were seeded with the update today through the Mac App Store, and the golden master designation means that the company is confident that this could be the exact same version that it ships to the general public when Yosemite is released later this fall, barring any last-minute bugs (hence the word “candidate.”) OS X Yosemite was originally introduced back in June during the 2014 Worldwide Developers Conference, where it was shown…

    Today, Microsoft officially announced the next version of Windows: Windows 10. If you’re confused, you’re not alone. The currently-available version of Windows is 8.1, which means that Microsoft has inexplicably decided to forego version 9 altogether. Rumors that the next version would be called Windows TH, Windows One, or Windows 9 have now been dashed—Windows 10 is the future of Microsoft’s desktop operating system. It’s also still technically the 9th release of Windows. At an unveiling event earlier today, the company called Windows 10 the “most…

That’s not all, as it can also do 1080p at 120 frames per second (great for slow motions video recording,) and takes 12 megapixel images, up to 30 per second. On the inside you’ll find a processor that is twice a fast as what was in the GoPro Hero3+ Black Edition, as well as a redesigned microphone with double the dynamic range as the previous model.

  • Kanex GoBuddy+: the Bottle Opener Keyring We’ll All Want

    Judie Lipsett Stanford
    1 Oct 2014 | 8:15 am
    If you usually carry a bottle opener keyring, as so many of us do, then you could be getting so much more utility out of that doodad. A Kanex GoBuddy+ adds an emergency sync and charge cable with either a lightning port or microUSB connector, and yes — a bottle opener. Pretty nifty, right? It will charge your device, open your cold beverage, and attach via included carabiner clip to your keys. The Kanex GoBuddy+ is $24.95 for the Lightning version and $19.95 for the microUSB version; both come with that bottle opener keyring.
  • JunoPower Kaebo Lightning Cable Review: Guaranteed to Last

    Judie Lipsett Stanford
    30 Sep 2014 | 6:00 pm
    I’ve mentioned that Kev recently upgraded his iPhone 4S and moved to an iPhone 6, which ultimately meant a cable upgrading crisis at my house. All of Kev’s 30-pin cables had to be upgraded to Lightning, which brought him nosing around my stockpile, so I was scrambling. Fortunately, I had the JunoPower Kaebo Lightning Cable in my queue. Fancy, right? I love the tangle-free properties of fabric-wrapped headphones cables, and I like the wrapping on these lightning cables, too.  The Kaebo “features high strength cloth that makes it resistant to rips or…

    Ramp up your tire swing game with this badass Chopper Tire Swing. Why settle for just a boring tire on a rope when you can have the entire motorcycle? Since it’s not practical to string up a real chopper on a tree branch, this tire swing is a specially designed replica. It straddles the line between art and fun, just like a real chopper. It’s made from recycled tires, a rubber frame, and stainless steel handlebars and forks. Lean back on the easy rider seat and swing away into the sunset like a kid version of Peter Fonda.

Shipped flat, you fold up the cardboard and use a little glue to make a box that looks just like an old movie projector. It’s small, inexpensive, and lightweight so you can bring it anywhere you want. Insert your phone into the slot at the back, turn up your brightness to 100%, dim the lights, aim it at a blank white wall or screen and the glass lens magnifies the image on your phone up to 8 times.

It looks just like the device from Doc Brown’s famed DeLorean (you know, from the movie Back to the Future? just stating the obvious) but instead of taking you back or forward in time, it charges up your phone.

    R.J. Huneke
    26 Sep 2014 | 6:36 am
    The Mighty Mug is currently $62,000 over its Kickstarter goal for the coffee vessel that cannot be knocked over. You heard right, folks, the Mighty Mug refuses to go down, despite being slapped, knocked, or pushed by a sadistic hand trying to douse its Macbook’s keyboard in steaming liquid. How does that happen, you ask? It all begins with a story: What happens when an average coffee mug gets bit by a radioactive spider, no wait that’s something else, when an ordinary coffee mug meets Smartgrip technology? You get the sturdy Mighty Mug. Be shocked that this is on Kickstarter and not…

    You may not be a sports fan, but as a responsible parent or just a concerned citizen having a tiny, light sensor like the Jolt to monitor blows to the head during young athletes’ impact sports needs to be a mandatory part of the games. The Jolt Sensor is mere hours away from being funded on Kickstarter! In the wake of severe medical injuries, both short and long-term, in sports like American football in the NFL and their continued measures to protect the heads and brains of athletes, the Jolt seems like a no brainer (pun intended). Jolt is a wearable sensor that allows parents and coaches…

In this case, Tinkerbell and a horse and carriage. It's not the first time I've seen a projection mapped wedding cake (Donkey Kong one HERE), it's just the first time I've seen it offered as a wedding service. Of course, it's only offered as option in Disney's 'Wishes Collection', which starts at $12,000. Sounds too fancy for anyone I know.

    The Adafruit PCB Ruler is more than just a way of measuring things. It is also the ultimate reference (at least for the size) for folks designing their own PCBs. The ruler is made of a 6” length of PCB laminate, and naturally it offers the requisite inches and centimeters. Where the ruler diverges from the expected is that it is covered, both sides, in reference materials for PCB design: want to know what a 24-mil trace looks like? What about a 28-gauge via? The ruler also has footprints for over a dozen surface-mount components like minuscule SOT-23 chips, the size of half a grain of rice.

    I’ve used the Wagner Deck Mate for years. Its smart design really speeds up staining the planks in a deck. It has an aluminum handle, gravity-feed reservoir, control valve knob, and swiveling paint pad head. The long handle lets you stain the deck while standing up (and off your knees!) Fill the reservoir with up to a ½ gallon of stain or sealant, and then twist the yellow knob to control the flow of stain down into the paint pad. As you glide the pad along the decking it both applies stain and back brushes for even and full coverage in one step. A really clever feature is the center…

    I’m glad I don’t have to stain my cedar deck every summer but when I do I’m extra glad I found the Handy Paint Pail. It’s a quart-sized container that holds paint or stain while you do brush work. The wide, rubbery strap works two ways. Slip your hand through the adjustable strap. Your hand relaxes into a gentle curve: no cramps from hours of gripping a paint can. You can also use the handle in reverse: wear the can across the back of your hand. This leaves your hand free to grip ladders or hold things. The unique D-shaped cup is really useful. The curved part fits your hand while…

On the outside the bag features waterproof nylon (thunderstorm tested, it works remarkably well!) as well as vented material on the underside that keeps your back from getting too hot. Inside it has soft creamy fabric that’s ideal for protecting delicate items; it has a laptop sleeve that fits any Mac and most PC laptops under 15-inches.

    To capture the attention of busy office workers and entice them to eat lunch at Asian restaurant chain Wokker, creative agency Hungry Boys released ten drones with banners promoting the eatery’s offerings around high-rise business centers in Moscow. The unmanned aerial vehicles, which were deployed at a time when hunger typically sets in, flew next to windows to ensure that they wouldn’t go unnoticed by even the most focused employees. Reports show that the number of food orders near these business centers rose by 40% following the campaign, demonstrating that the use of non-traditional…

  • Developing Snake Antivenoms for Dogs and Pet Animals

    28 Sep 2014 | 11:12 pm
    Every year, hundreds of thousands of dogs get bitten by snakes in the United States. While the number of fatalities is more subdued, every dog which succumbed to a snake bite and died is one too many for the loving pet owners. Despite the fact that humans learned how to make snake antivenom more than 100 years ago, there are critical shortages when it comes to developing antivenom for dogs and other beloved animal pets. This gap represents a market opportunity to present pet owners and medical workers worldwide with newly developed antivenom treatments designed specifically for animals.

    A cat lady in me is very excited by this initiative. More than 12 Los-Angeles architecture practices participated in a one-night-only exhibition event to raise money for animal charity FixNation. The exhibit was titled Architects for Animals “Giving Shelter” and consisted of cat houses of every shape or form. Some of these creations look pretty obscure, but some could be an attractive and fun cat home/playground. Read more about the fundraiser here. Architects Design Cat Shelters [Shoebox Dwelling]

    Going to the beach can be a fun day in the sun, but you do have to worry about the security of the items you bring with you. Leaving things in the locked trunk of your car is probably your safest bet, but you’re going to want to have your phone, wallet, and keys with you (the latter is a must for obvious reasons). If you haven’t found a good way of dealing with this issue just yet, then you’ll be happy to know that there are a myriad of options available. One of these is the Beachsafe. It may look like it would only function as a backpack, but is also a security system,…

    While we are already in October of this year, this can only mean one thing – the march of the holiday season will soon be upon us. For those of us who happen to live in the northern hemisphere, we have recently made the cross from summer to autumn, and hence it is a time to earn additional dough from raking leaves, while preparing for Halloween. If you would like your home to be the outstanding one this coming Halloween, perhaps the usual slew of decorations might not make the cut unless you pick up the $149.95 15′ Inflatable Apparition?

  • Long range Turkish electric car hits the road

    Peter Murray
    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…

See if I learn anything. I set it for French. I wanted to learn French so I could read the advertising posts on Facebook from Safari Alto, a camper manufacturer from Montreal, Canada. It was a humble goal, especially since they usually provide an English translation. To be fair, I speak Spanish pretty well and took a semester of Latin in college, so this is the third time I’ve tackled a language. Some of…

  • Magic Eraser Works Like Magic

    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.

    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…

Why is this being done?

    29 Sep 2014 | 7:07 am
    If you haven't read Jean-Louis Gassée's post called BlackBerry: The Endgame, I'd really recommend reading it. The article talks about the missteps that Research In Motion / BlackBerry Limited took since the introduction of the iPhone that have lead to a spectatular loss in the value of their business. .... In reality, RIM was much more than three years behind iOS (and, later, Android). Depending on whom we listen to, the 2007 iPhone didn't just didn't stand on a modern (if incomplete) OS, it stood on 3 to 5 years of development, of trial and error........ All other factors that are invoked…
  • 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…

    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…

    If you enjoy using social media sites then is it something that you think is a good thing for your life or not?

    Longboarding is cool. Cruising about on those four wheels listening to your favorite tunes without a care in the world, is even cooler. But the longer you board, and the farther away you are from home, the more the chance of running out of juice on your music player or your phone. Not with the Chargeboard, a longboard with a kinetic charging station. Well now still a prototype but you could help fund their project on Kickstarter next week and perhaps there is a chance to get your hands on one. So, how does it work?

    It’s not unbelievable to imagine that someone obsessed with having a fast internet connection would move across town where another ISP has better service. But would you move to another country? If you’re willing to pack up and move (and potentially learn a new language) for the fastest internet speeds on Earth, here are 10 countries you should consider. 10. Belgium. With an average peak speed of 38.5 Mbps, Belgium has the 10th fastest internet connection in the world according to a 2014 report released by Akamai, the cloud storage company.

    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…

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…

    Stern is the only major pinball machine manufacturer still in business. They seem to be tempting fate with their latest licensed machine, based on AMC's The Walking Dead. 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

    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…

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…

    Indoor bicycle trainers may allow cyclists to keep fit and go through the physical motions of riding a bike, but let's be honest ... as compared to actually riding outdoors, they're stunningly boring. Among other things, one of the problems is the fact that riders tend to use them in isolation, with no real incentive to push themselves. Zwift, however, is designed to change that. It's a massive multiplayer online game (MMOG) platform that lets real-world cyclists ride with or race against one another in 3D computer-generated online environments.

The impressive battery life is essential because, as with previous entries in the Xperia range, the Z3 is a multimedia…

    Facebook said today it would build new authentication tools to verify accounts flagged for being fake, following a controversy in which members of the LGBT community began leaving the social network so that they could use pseudonyms. "We owe you a better service and a better experience using Facebook, and we're going to fix the way this policy gets handled so everyone affected here can go back to using Facebook as you were," said Chris Cox, the company's chief product officer, in a Facebook post.

    Russell Brandom

    This month, The Verge is bringing you a new way to look at the future. We call it The Big Question, an animated video series devoted to the most important questions of humanity's future. Think of it as a quick tour of the puzzles and wild ambitions that will shape the next few centuries, whether it's Martian colonies, lab-grown steaks, brain implants or genetically engineered mammoths.

  • Now Verizon is doubling its shared data plans too

    Jacob Kastrenakes
    1 Oct 2014 | 11:32 am
    In a nice little example of what happens when there's actually some competition in a market, Verizon has become the third carrier to double the data it offers in many of its largest family plans. Verizon is now offering 30GB for $130, 40GB for $150, and 60GB for $225, though you'll also have to pay a per-line fee. That's identical to what AT&T is now offering, while Sprint's offerings are currently twice those for nearly the same prices. The promotion runs through the end of October, like those from Sprint and AT&T. Continue reading…

    If you're a Comcast X1 customer in one of a lucky few markets, you can now stream and download DVR recordings from anywhere — even when away from home. Today the company announced the launch of live in-home streaming and its "X1 DVR with Cloud Technology" in the San Francisco Bay Area and Houston markets. Prior to today, those two features were available in Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia and DC. Comcast says it's aiming to offer them to "most" of its X1 customers by year's end.

  • 'Shadow of Mordor' is morally repulsive and I can't stop playing it

    Chris Plante
    1 Oct 2014 | 11:18 am
    I'd cleaved apart 200 or so bad guys before I had the grim epiphany that a video game had turned me into an expert in insurgency. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, the new video game that serves as connective tissue between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, isn't shy about violence or the purpose it serves. A button is assigned to "Brutalize," a lethal and grotesque flurry of cuts and stabs meant to kill one enemy but more importantly horrify nearby survivors, dispersing them like a herd of spooked deer. I'm embarrassed how little the violence affected me at first. I've played…

So this device isn’t just a pipe dream. While the device is super duper minuscule, measuring in at only 53mm x 33mm x 18mm (2.1″ x 1.3″ x 0.7″), small size does have its weaknesses. I don’t know how…

    For most people, a red Ferrari is the way to go. A Ferrari that isn’t red doesn’t usually have a lot of power, but this latest Ferrari car aims to change that. It is called 458 Special A, where ‘A’ stands for Aperta or open in English. Under the hood is the same 4.5-liter V8 engine as the hardtop Speciale, which produces a whopping 597 horsepower and 398-pound feet of torque. It can rocket

    Wes
    27 Sep 2014 | 5:25 pm
    The Stack Smart Light bulb is what the Nest is for home heating and cooling.  It is the first iteration in what might be the closest thing to the future of lighting.  It’s not just mood lighting, it’s algorithmic interactivity lighting, or a light that knows your habits. So, it’s really here, the smart light bulb.  No other light bulb seems to compare or in reality should ever bear the name “Smart”.  I have to admit that I am curious to see it in action as I know how smart the Nest is.  So few tech items I’ve purchased have had an ROI of less than 12…

    USB Type C offers new Power Ever since it’s inception, I’ve personally tracked the progress of the Universal Serial Bus (USB).  In the mid-1990’s I postulated about the idea of a SmartMedia Card being attached to a USB plug that could be connected to a computer for external storage (now called the USB thumb or flash drive). It has fascinated me how it could be possible to have a cable that could be so “universal”.  I appreciated the ideal and so the USB consortium has announced the latest in the line of products, USB Type C. It’s pertinent to cover the…

    It’s been quite a while since I’ve written a GOMH, but this one is a biggie.  Dropcam Tabs are pretty cool.  They literally allow you to keep track of everything you own. About the size of a stick of gum, the Tabs have several sensors built-in along with a long-lasting coin-cell battery (expected life 2 years).  These sensors include an accelerometer for sensing when things begin to move or when they stop.  There is a vibration sensor for when things shake or break. The uses for such a device would seem to be limitless and via the video below, Dropcam gets us started.

     Sizzling Bacon a Netflix Original With this Netflix Original, you might think you’re getting something good.  But don’t be fooled by the sexy imagery or tantalizing, golden-brown strips of luscious pork belly. In this 20 minute production of Sizzling Bacon, Netflix brings you a frying pan with two strips.  I was honestly disappointed, expecting that maybe they might go all out, in the way that Google tends to do. April Fools Day joke or not, I think I take my bacon a little more seriously, does that make me a food snob (probably)? I was tantalized at first. But you never can…

Google is rolling out a small, new feature on all Google Plus profile pages.  The total number of times your profile has been viewed, is showed next to your total followers. I did not realize that I was so popular until today.  My first guess was that it had to do with some spam factor, or that Google might have made a mistake, but then I checked Mike Elgan’s profile and by comparison I’m still small potatoes.   But of course my curiosity led me to other…

  • Waves MFS Physio-Tactical Pocket Stick

    30 Sep 2014 | 3:29 pm
    Designer Rainer Wenning calls his Waves MFS a "physio-tactical" palm stick, which might be the best bit of pretentious, made-up terminology I've ever heard. Because what "physio-tactical" basically means is that after you use the tool to beat the shit out of an attacker, you can then pop a squat on the curb and use it to soothe your hand cramp and unknot the forearm muscles that seized up in the process. The Waves MFS: from assault weapon to spa frill in 3 seconds flat. Boker Plus makes Wenning's combination self defense-massage stick from solid titanium. Easy to hold and effective during…

Nicer than, "The moonshine business originated as an illegal and criminal activity that thrived anyway because it made drinkers joyously drunk and shiners joyously rich." Maybe Walter White should steal Hush's euphemism for his own business. For my part, I'm not judging. I'm an advocate of many illegal activities. Also, I only judge things that don't directly benefit me, and having burned through most of a bottle of Flaming Cinnamon Hush with an Air Canada…
