At this point, we've gushed and slobbered about the Retina MacBook Pro enough (until we review it, that is). Today we learned that in addition to being an engineering marvel, it's a DIY black hole. Does that matter?
You log into Facebook and you have a birthday reminder for one of your "friends." The name doesn't ring a bell and the profile picture isn't helpful. Someone you knew in high school who got married, maybe? You have no idea.
Right now, strange and spectacular 3D-printed objects are proliferating in the tech and design worlds. Butt plugs, cakes, brains, scaled models of Fenway Park. There is seemingly no object that a 3D printer won't try. What would you, our readers, like to see printed in 3D? Please, share your answers and ideas in the…
Man dogs are great. Having a dog is great. Playing with your dog is especially amazingly great. But leaving man's best friend for a whole day at work? Ugh no never HOW CAN WE FIX THIS? Skype, apparently.
Remember when JPGs took multiple seconds to download? When your digital camera served up horrid pixel slop? When you actually scanned things? That was mental millennia ago, but there are probably traces sitting on your hard drive. What's the oldest?
In Australia, a disagreement between two next-door neighbors over noise escalated into a unbelievable bloody battle, where one's finger was hacked off with a Samurai sword and the other's arm was nearly severed with a chainsaw.
We half expected this morning's BlackBerry World conference to end in a Jonestown-style, Goodbye, jerks! manner, with Thorstein Heins handing out RIM t-shirts and cyanide. Instead, RIM demoed its new operating system and some hardware. Do you give a shit?
Hacker movies are a beloved subset of geek cinema. They're often embarrassing, with absurd references to modems, people wrestling over floppies, and lots of fake screen interfaces. Melting icons. That sort of thing. But which is the best of all?
LeicaRumors is reporting a crazy Leica rumor! The luxe German camera firm is rumored to be readying a B&W-only model. With no LCD screen. That's right: no colors, no screen, just black and white shots forever. Brilliant or moronic?
The creativity that went in inventing McDonald's miracle flavored rice is so beyond my little human brain that I'd have to be high as a kite to understand the magic. But oh the magic. The culinary geniuses at RocketNews24 cooked rice with a Big Mac, fries, chicken nuggets, sauce and coke to deliver what has to be…
Guys! Can you hear Mark Zuckerberg splish-splashing in his giant gold bullion-filled tub? It's IPO time—Facebook's going public, and a bunch of rich people are about to become even richer. But shall this Ultimate Stock be labeled?
I have a drawer filled with USB drives that I've picked up along this windy life of mine but none of them look like Empty Memory, an artsy, almost jewelry-esque USB stick that looks like it's hollow. They only hold 4GB of data but BOY DO THEY LOOK COOL.
This is what KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is doing: their incoming check-in system will allow passengers to choose seat mates based on their Facebook and LinkedIn profiles, so he or she would be someone who shares your interests.
Motorola's impending LTE tablet is called the Xyboard. That's an asinine name for anything. On the other hand, Samsung sells a beautiful 55-inch LCD TV called the UN55D8000, and Sony's awesome 3D helmet is labeled the inscrutable HMZ-T1. What's worse?
Sprint didn't fare too well in our iPhone 4S speed test, but it was at least respectable. Today, though, we're hearing that Sprint's iPhone 4S is getting tragically low data speeds compared to the Galaxy S II on the same network.
Ice Cream Sandwich here! Ice Cream Sandwich is here! And in the world of Android, that can only mean one thing (besides a bunch of nerds whining about not having their update yet): Oh god I need to know what's next.
It's iPhone 4S day! Are you a fanboy who weathered a night in the rain for your iPhone? Or did you stay home cuddling with your Android plushie?
I have pretty secure passwords, as much to keep would-be miscreants at bay as to keep my friends and family from finding out just how horrible a life I'm living. But according to a study, a full 11 percent of Brits plan to leave their passwords in their will.
