I think it’s kind of sad how a lot of people are becoming increasingly attached to their gadgets like smartphones and tablets. I mean, finding them to be useful is one thing. But feeling like you can’t last a day without them?
I always thought the original Mad Max film was really cool. The other films in the series not so much. The later films got even more strange and silly than the original. Mad Max was more about the cars and the chases though, so I loved that film.
I think that many of us have a mental image of what the average person that uses certain types of devices might look like. For instance, I picture the typical Apple as a person with designer glasses and a penchant for overpriced coffee.
It was just yesterday that we featured a cool portable Gamecube mod which we thought was pretty nifty. But I just stumbled onto another Gamecube handheld which is even cooler. And while making portable Gamecubes is actually quite common in modding circles, the Gamecube Envision is the best portable version of the console I’ve seen yet.
Just the other day we told you how Sony’s PS Vita had been selling pretty well over in Japan, but it turns out, that’s not the whole story. The PS Vita has been available in Japan since December 17, but now after only its second week on sale, Sony’s last generation handheld, the PSP, is outselling it.
Though the company has been set against making customers pay for extra game content, Nintendo has apparently changed its mind. Fire Emblem: Kakusei will be the first game in the 3DS lineup to offer paid downloadable content.
While it’s not as lazy user-friendly as the Roomba, the Solar-Charged Remote Control Electric Lawn Mower invented by coder/tinkerer/not The Cure frontman Robert Smith is still more convenient than using traditional lawn mowers, and is most likely not as expensive as the ride-on mowers either.
British Prime Minister David Cameron will soon take care at least some of his daily business for the UK thanks to a personalized iPad app. It will primarily be used to provide him with real time data on England’s various key statistics.
A nano-sized device should require a nano-sized dock, that’s basically what Gavio decided to do with their new speaker dock, The Pill. It will match your iPod nano (6G) quite well, since it doesn’t take up much space, it’s also easily portable.
Back in 2008 Flaming Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne hacked a custom guitar together using parts from a Guitar Hero controller. Pretty impressive, but chiptune artist cTrix had a bolder idea – he used a whole console.
If you’re sick and tired of how your face looks, then maybe it’s time for plastic surgery. Sounds painful and unappealing, right? Not to mention expensive. But here’s a solution for you, albeit a really temporary and novel one: use Face Swap.
Filling electronic gadgets with liquid just seems like a bad idea. But if you’re a beer connoisseur (and Budweiser happens to be your drink of choice), then you might want to check out this ridiculous flash drive.
The real Large Hadron Collider scares the crap out of me. I don’t think that it will create a little black hole and destroy the planet or anything. I am just always afraid I will write the Large Hardon Collider.
This is just wild to me. I mentioned way back in August that SETI had raised the money needed to continue operating. Generally, they search the heavens for proof of an alien life by picking up radio signals.
