If you’ve been reading news around the web, maybe you’ve found that Google often implements “Easter eggs” in its system. When you type “do a barrel roll” on the search bar, for example, the screen does exactly what you told it to do. Here’s another one: Google Gravity. This time, Google released a new Easter egg in light of the holidays that puts snow on your screen. Give it a try! The keyword is “Let it snow.” Note that your … Continue reading
As I was re-reading my previous post about Christmas gift recommendations this year, I noticed that I didn’t give a drop of attention to children. Seeing as I’m inclined to spoiling kids, I’ve forgotten that one of the most beautiful things to look forward to in Christmas is the look on your child’s face when you get him/her something special. With tech & gadgets in mind, I decided to write up a small and brief list of techy gifts you … Continue reading
The beginning of the twenty-first century brought a huge increase in gadgets and computing technology. That’s very fortunate for me, because I can now capitalize on it with the “Christmas Spirit.” I now bring you the first Christmas gift recommendation in The Tech Guy’s history. And for those of you offended because I keep saying “Christmas,” just know that I’m a pantheist (sort of atheist). Don’t play the smart-ass card.
You’ve seen it. The whole Internet is starting to entertain like never before. Tons of images on Memebase.Com, videos on YouTube, and funky Flash advertisements on websites like this one are appearing more and more throughout the Internet. Is this the end of written stories? Is the Internet just going to be one big video library? Does this T-shirt make me look fat?
Today, I just saw an amazing video of a guy who’s daring enough to put his life (and the lives of his neighbors) in danger by building a fusion power generator. Considering that he’s not your average nose-picking walrus, it’s not as big of a risk once you realize that he’s got the brains to come through with it. The technology behind his invention is just stunning.
I thought I’d get into the spirit of the holidays and offer you a reminder of why you shouldn’t wait too long to do your Christmas shopping. Perhaps this will convince you to shop in the first two weeks of December. The first week’s over, but it’s still not too late to prevent getting trampled by a stampede.
You probably already know about hidden fees in car payments, loans, and stuff like that. Have you looked at your phone or cable Internet bill lately? I think you’ll find some of the most shameless hidden fees riddled all over payments you normally make, all of which will make you wonder why you signed that contract. Unlike a celebrity marriage, contracts usually last longer than a couple of months, so you’d do best to ask about their stupid fees.
OK. So, I think I got a few questions here and there from people, enough to start my first edition of Ask The Tech Guy. Also, I haven’t written for a while here, and it seems like the noise of crickets is rather unpleasant after all. This website is not only a comic tech site, but also one that should help people once in a while, right? Today, I’m proud to release the first edition of Ask The Tech Guy!
If you thought that cars couldn’t get much weirder, Toyota just came up with the funkiest thing imaginable: A car that has a touchscreen interface. The car also comes with an “augmented reality” interface that might be useful, but WTH, Toyota?! A touchscreen car?! It’s a vehicle used for transportation, not a toy your kid squiggles weird stick figures on when you’re not looking!
