Dear Google, I f’ing love you. You know that. We’ve had a good run for many, many years. You’ve provided me with free services, and I’ve done jack s**t for you. I liked it that way. I think you liked it too. Heck, I even clicked on an occasional ad once in a while when I was interested, as “payment” for the almighty amazing piece of tech awesomeness you’ve become. I remember the day when we first met back in … Continue reading
Earlier this week, I wrote an article at Make Tech Easier about how SSD optimization can really put more strain on your little device than is necessary. If you’re not aware of what I write on that site, you’re a horrible person. Just kidding…. Or not?
Everybody who reads this blog regularly knows that I have the tendency to make dumb-ass tests and resets on the server. That’s why I’m going to torment you with a post that has no other purpose than testing the function of my Facebook publishing function. Enjoy. Update: It worked. I did not torment you in vain. Celebrate… NOW….

What do you get when a company fiercely fights another for market share and starts going into “evil genius” mode? Nobody knows, but Samsung nearly hit the nail on the head lately in its fight with Apple, almost successfully banning its products from U.S. soil. What would Occupy Wall Street do without their iPhones to take pictures of police officers beating the living crap out of them?
You haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen a library with slides. Nothing beats education with a playground environment, and one dude came up with a way to mix the two: Put a slide smack dab in the middle of a goddamn library.
So, you’re into photography and film-making, but you don’t have Exxon’s budget. That’s OK, according to Blackmagic Design. They just made a camera that costs a little more than the beer budget for a party, but with very impressive capabilities, all within one very compact device.
I normally don’t write about the military, but this is awesome and could be used for defensive purposes. The US Navy has recently gotten involved in a project that, by 2014, will have solid-state lasers deployed aboard ships. The level of awesomeness here is not to be underestimated. This is Death Star-level stuff!
There are a lot of dumb-ass people in the world who don’t do their research but vote politicians that perfectly represent them into office. And that’s what the guv’ment counts on. They count on you not having enough time to read through all the shit they write. They count on you perpetuating their jobs because, well, “things weren’t so bad forme when he served a term.” Today, we’ll discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of Internet-related legislation and how … Continue reading
Not too long ago, I wrote about a printer that makes images using water droplets. It seems that someone has taken an opposing direction: Lucien Langton, a guy who has a lot of time on his hands, has created a printer that prints with fire.
