I was sitting at my desk when my phone rang. It was my wife, "We've been robbed." Someone had broken into our garage and taken our bikes. We're not avid bikers. We didn't have bikes that cost more than my first car. Still, the combined loss was about $800.
Seeing Chef Maxime Bilet talk about how the Modernist Cuisine created the most ultimate hamburger in this entire world, makes me cry happy meat tears. Everything was scientifically considered, from the fluffy bun and lab made cheese, to the sous-viding and cryofrying process. I'll go vegetarian for you, baby.
Anybody who's worked in a cubicle is familiar the Outlook Request Read Receipt — that horrid popup that demands you confirm you have indeed read (and summarily deleted) the TPS report Ted from accounting had sent out. Now, Tout, a new email tracking app, does the same. Huzzah?
There are more things to check in a camera besides the aesthetics. Buying a used product comes with many risks: malfunctions, scratches or hidden flaws that the seller might not say about the camera.

The possibility of alien life has captivated our imaginations for generations. Now that possibility just got a big boost as Kepler's managed to find and confirm a potentially Earth-like planet. It's just 600 light years away and occupies that magic 'habitable zone' around its star, like the Earth does around the sun.
If you get your telly through the free part of the satellite spectrum, there'll be a bit more content on offer when you get home today -- thanks to five new channels from Channel 5 joining the Freesat listings.
Improving on existing systems that only watch a driver's eyes for signs of fatigue, Denso has created a drowsiness level checker that tracks subtle muscle movements over the entire face. Alerting users that they're too tired before they fall asleep.
The fuss over Carrier IQ and its vast potential for misuse has hit the UK, with the Information Commissioner’s Office drawn into the debate over the currently controversial mobile phone logging software.
The spacecraft Voyager 1 is now 11 billion miles from the sun, at the very end of the solar system. It's peacefully sailing in a new region between us and interstellar space. NASA poetically calls it cosmic purgatory.
A mother who claims she was "testing" TalkTalk's porn filter by having a look around Pornhub was shocked to find that the ISP's filtering system failed to block the site. As if the name wasn't enough of a clue.
Sneakers, the film about a team of hackers and social engineers who break into banks just to test their security, isn't just a film. People really do get to do that for a living — people like Moran Cerf. Here's how he held up a bank without breaking a law.
