Those of you who live in more temperate areas of the world can’t really appreciate how hot it is in Texas. It’s so hot, it’s hawt, southerners drawl because it’s too hot for your tongue to work, you get the idea.
The steampunk “Electromagnetic Geospacial Globe and Remote View with Obligatory Goggles” doesn’t just look cool, I like what creator John Knight is trying to do – making the ol’ globe more useful.

As expected by pretty much the entire world, Steve Jobs today showed off the new iPhone 4 at WWDC 2010 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.
With all of the leaked prototypes over the last couple of months, we weren’t expecting too many surprises today.
geotrion uses the GPS feature of your iDevice (I’m tired of typing iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad okay?) to figure out your location. The objective of the game is to form a triangle with other geotrion players.

If you’re in the market for a smartphone, but want to run something besides Windows Mobile, Android or the iPhone OS, you might want to check out this little rarity from China that runs on a flavor of the Linux operating system.
It looks like the BrainPort vision technology has now been tested on humans. It will now allow the visually-impaired to “see” things using their tongues!
The human test subject was a soldier, who was blinded in Iraq.
It looks like nightmares are becoming a reality for the Japanese. A new cell phone from KDDI, that’s packaged attractively as a wrist phone, will be able to tell if you’re slacking off at work. It will then rat you out to your boss!
Remember that Notion Ink Adam tablet that we first reported as possible vaporware? Well, we were clearly wrong, and the Interwebs are buzzing with glee over the impressive specs and hands-on demos that have been making the rounds at this week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

At the Tokyo Fiber SENSEWARE, the same exhibit that gave us those creepy robot pillow vacuums, Nissan Motor and the Hara Design Institute Nippon Design Center also showed off another weird concept: a model of a car that can smile, i.e.
