Someone at Instagram has a slippery trigger finger: Some Instagram for Android users are reporting links posted to a "one tap photo messaging app" called Bolt. It sounds an awful lot like a very popular photo-sharing app not owned by Facebook that rhymes with "App Hat."
Ever since Dolly the sheep was cloned eighteen years ago, scientists have been trying and failing to use that same technique to create cloned human embryos from adult cells. Now, they've finally succeeded, in what could a major step toward personalized organ transplants and other therapies that rely on a pool of stem…
China has long been known for its knock-offs and copy-cat merch, but this latest project is some next-level kind of counterfeit crazy.
I've always wanted to swim in Duck Tales' vault of gold. Alas, it's not in my cards (and besides, diving into scraps of metal isn't exactly good for the joints). These 33 photographs will need to do the trick.
So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn't possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn't worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.
Where does one secure the very best bacon? The supermarket? Shut up, rookie! You secure it from the heroic pig that survived for more than a month buried beneath the rubble of China's horrific Sichuan earthquake.
In 1996, Dolly the sheep made headlines for being the first mammal cloned from an adult cell. She was put down in 2002. But as it turns out, Dolly's still alive today. A scientist secretly made four copies years ago.
So, the Sony Vaio P has a clone. Congrats, Sony! Too bad the mimicry ends with the aesthetics:
It's been a while since we've heard more about the iPhone Nano, and even though it's hasn't shown its face yet it already has its own clone: The HiPhone Nano.
I understand people really close to dogs. I am. I love Jones like if he was my own son. Seriously. But paying $150,000 to clone a dog after he dies, like this couple from Miami?
Those Chinese cloners have fired up their photocopiers again, this time hunting after big, expensive game: the luxury Vertu phones from Nokia. The Veptu clone phones actually look like the real deal, some even coming with 24k gold-plated cases, leather backs and up to 3.3 carats of embedded diamonds—are these real?…
The Guardian did a little research on this Psystar, the company that vows to continue selling their generic Mac OS X clones even if Apple decides to sue them. Turns out that not only has the Miami Chamber of Commerce and BBB never heard of them, there's essentially no trace of them on the internet at all. As if that…
The apparently incombustible Meizu CEO, Jack Wong, has just announced that they are going to add Live Messenger to their M8 cellphone, the rather pathetic and sad motherboard that wants to be an iPhone clone when it grows up (if it ever gets released). In other words: new vaporware announced for vaporware. The usual…
Why, oh why can't there be Mac clones again? The quality of Mac hardware has been steadily declining, and if a user is devoted to OS X and no other, there's no choice for hardware but Apple.
Congratulations, Tivoli Audio! Your products have been knocked off by one of the dozens of Chinese product cloners showing off in the dark corners of CES's backwater halls. That is a high honor.
