I think it’s safe to say everyone knows William Shatner, whether it’s from Star Trek, T.J. Hooker, various TV commercials, or Psych. Shat is particularly well known for his “larger than life” acting style and being a generally over-the-top guy.
The swiveling displays on some modern cameras make it easier to shoot pictures from a variety of angles. iPhones and iPads don’t have swiveling displays (yet), but this attachable right angle lens can help even up the playing field.
I can’t remember exactly the last time I paid for a webcam, probably 8 years ago, or something like that, however if you use your webcam a lot, it makes sense to buy something with a better sensor than the one you’ve got stuck on the top of your laptop.
This is as bizarre as news can get. A man boy recently filed for divorce from his now ex-wife because he claimed she was ugly. I call him a ‘boy’ because really I don’t think any real man would do what he did.
We followed the final trek of Space Shuttle Endeavour closely. Endeavour was given to the California Science Center and its last 12 miles required numerous trees to be cut down and involved using a pickup truck to tow the massive shuttle down public roadways.
They gang over at iFixit has been very busy of late tearing apart new gadgets. Recently, they tore apart a new iPad mini and a Microsoft Surface tablet to see what’s on the inside. The latest device to get the teardown treatment is the newest iPad 4 that debuted with the iPad mini.
After having played around with a couple of wireless speakers, I have to admit that I like them. The wireless JBL SoundFly is somewhat diminutive, but it packs enough power to let you listen to your music in almost any room.
Whoever invented pencils didn’t really think things through. Everything’s all good at the start, but what happens when the pencil gets too short and stubby that you can’t really use it to write comfortably?
That’s where the folks behind the Sprout Pencil come in.
I’m sure everyone is familiar with skydiving, but I’m not sure everyone is familiar with a wingsuit. If you have seen the movie Transformers 3, you might remember the soldiers in the flick jumping out of an airplane wearing black suits that allow them to glide rather than simply float to the ground.
It seems there’s always a better iPhone case around the corner… While I don’t think I have that many iPhone cases, I do have about 8 and unlike some people boast that their iPhones are naked, and without protection, I like to have my iPhone nicely protected, so that I can sell it when I eventually upgrade.
We’ve seen a lot of notable applications of 3D printing technology, but this one has to be the most cutting edge of them all. Some companies have made considerable progress in special 3D printers and ink.
Do you hate how the letters are arranged on all of the keyboards that are currently on the market? If your fingers never really got used to how the keys were arranged, then you’d better hope that this concept design called the ‘Puzzle Keyboard’ gets picked up someday.
Nothing helps accentuate a woman’s curves more than corsets. Recently, more and more geek-themed corsets are getting made to the delight of hot female nerds and non-nerds everywhere. Alien and Doctor Who have had their turns with the Facehugger corset and TARDIS corset, respectively.
I love getting mail and packages the old-fashioned way. There’s just something comforting about opening a letter to read it rather than just having to click an e-mail to display the contents.
Like most people, I have a job, so I can’t always be home to answer the door when my packages get here.
While I have to admit that I’m on the fence on whether to get the iPad Mini, I’ve been told by a couple of friends that they’d appreciate a smaller iPad because it would be easier to carry around with them everywhere.
