Dongle Adds HDMI to iPhone and iPad

Dongle Adds HDMI to iPhone and iPad
HDMI output for the iPhone? Surely not! You’d think that something as basic as an HDMI output wouldn’t be a big deal for a gadget like the iPhone. I mean, in this world of HDTVs, many devices ship with such a port standard.

DOTKLOK: Digital Clocks Go Open Source
This cool clock is the DOTKLOK and it’s an open source digital clock that can display the time with many different animations. The best part is that it’s totally hackable, not that I’d have the time to do this, but it’s nice to have that option.

South Korea Hires Robot Teachers

Thimble Concept Braille-ifies Digital and Analog Text

Thimble Concept Braille-ifies Digital and Analog Text
Mobile Internet is great – you can check your email, read the news, reserve seats at restaurants, and even check for parking spots, all from your smartphone. Not that I enjoy any of that fantastic futuristic stuff here where I live, but it’s nice to know that theoretically, I could.

Wired Interviews Mike “Death Star” Brown, Killer of Pluto

Wired Interviews Mike “Death Star” Brown, Killer of Pluto
You probably remember back in 2007 when a bunch of astronomers got together and convinced the world that Pluto was no longer a planet. That single-handedly made a change in science books around the world. One of the dudes responsible for killing Pluto is Mike Brown.

Quirky Digits Lets Cold Geeks Work Their iPhones

Quirky Digits Lets Cold Geeks Work Their iPhones
It doesn’t get cold here in Texas often, so I don’t even own a pair of gloves. My brother-in-law lived up in Minnesota for few years where going out without gloves on wasn’t good for your health.

Legend of Zelda Prototype Surfaces: Easier to Play, But Just as Fun
Ah, The Legend of Zelda. I played that game for hours and hours and I wasn’t the only one. The game also hooked my sister, who no longer plays any video games, but still loves Zelda.

Dell Adamo Price Cut: If a Tree Falls in the Forest…
Dell has just dropped the price on its stylish Adamo lightweight laptop computers from $1099 to as little as $899. In my opinion, it’s too little too late, when for a little bit more, you could get the newer MacBook Air.

Cat Head Mousepad Heater Eats Your Mouse, Then Your Hand

Cat Head Mousepad Heater Eats Your Mouse, Then Your Hand
Now, I’ll start out by saying that unless I’m sitting in an igloo, my mousing hand doesn’t really get too cold. That said, if you’ve got poor circulation, you might want to keep your fingers warm while you’re using your mouse.

8-Bit Independence

8-Bit Independence
This great pic combines the iconic imagery of Galaga and Independence Day into one. 8-Bit Independence was created by Steven Lefcourt (aka Ste7en), and manages to mash up one of my favorite video games of all time with one of my least favorite movies of all time, and improve on both.
