The guys over at Porsche Design have unveiled an interesting new watch. The case of the watch is made from titanium that is colored black. It’s a very simple looking and minimalist watch with a black face and white markings, and a red second hand.
Do you hate the guys in your company’s finance department? Are they always making it a pain in the ass for you to get your invoices paid, or make purchases? Here’s your chance to get sweet, sweet revenge.
The last time I used a point-and-shoot regularly was before I had a DSLR, and was trying to develop my photography skills. Yet in a world with Micro Four Thirds and heavier lenses for DSLRs, there’s still room for something light and easy to carry around, like this Sony DSC-TX55 to take high-quality photos without lugging around a bunch of gear.
T-shirt maker/closet archeologist/pun master Jonah Block has a mind-blowing revelation about the evolution of man. Humans are descended from Hylians. Which means Hylians also came from monkeys. So Donkey Kong came first, then Link, then Mario.
It’s been a while since the Facebook iPhone app was released, but people have been anxiously awaiting the iPad app, which, thanks to its larger screen, will make using Facebook a lot more fun. TechCrunch’s MG Siegler reports that the iPad app is actually hidden in the iPhone app codebase, and has been able to play with the app on an iPad ever since Facebook updated their iPhone app to 3.4.4 yesterday.
After releasing the Magic Bar charger for Apple’s wireless keyboard and trackpad, Mobee continues their war on (disposable) batteries with the Magic Charger, which uses inductive charging to wirelessly charge the Magic Mouse, using a base station that is, uhm, wired to your computer’s USB port.
One of Elecom’s latest wireless mice, the look of the Orime is supposed to be a reference to the ancient Japanese art of origami. Either that or first generation PlayStation games. Whatever the inspiration, I wonder if anyone bothered to test the usability of this device.
When you see a vacant lot that’s fenced off and no one seems to care about it all that much, why not throw some grenades at it? No, not the ordinary explosive kind – but instead use some Flower Grenades.
I’m not a trekkie, so pardon me if there is indeed evidence to the contrary, but I don’t think acquiring and managing properties is within the duties of a starship captain. But now you can help the best captains from five different eras conquer the board game frontier with Monopoly: Star Trek Continuum Edition.
While this isn’t something new, since the British developed these types of tanks in WWII, the robotic Digger D-3 is a modern-day take on the mine-sweeping tank. The D-3 is remote-controlled and will crawl around a minefield digging up up landmines thanks to its flail hammers.
I’m not very good at figuring out Rubik’s Cubes. I did go to University with a guy who would twist and fiddle with 3×3, 4×4, even 5×5 Rubik’s Cubes, and can be done with the whole thing in a matter of a few minutes.
When I was much younger, my mom gave me a tin can with a coin slot on top. She instructed me to drop any spare change I had to save up for a rainy day. I examined the can up close and saw that it was actually a free piggy bank tin that was being given away by a local bank.
One of the things that my childhood mind always wanted to know was how you go to the bathroom in outer space. Not to be rude or anything, but it always really sucked when you were dropping one off and accidentally pinched it off too early.
With the Space Shuttle Atlantis having landed safely from its final mission, you can continue the Space Shuttle era at home thanks to the LEGO Space Shuttle Expedition Set. The large set of LEGO bricks has 1,230 pieces and stands 17.5 inches in height and 10 inches in width.
Last week, we saw computer mice in various species with removable tails that doubled as USB dongles. Some pretty creative people also decided to use them in a way that they weren’t meant to be used: as belt buckles.
I have been playing around with OS X Lion on my MacBook Pro for the last few days, and naturally I also upgraded my wife’s computer to the latest edition. But for the people who don’t or can’t download OS X Lion from the Mac App Store, there’s good news, as it will be coming to you on a USB stick too.
