One reason even sound nerds are abandoning high-fidelity audio gear is that its ugly. The appearance of these products doesn't always sing. This USB interface will improve the sound of your digital music, and it's handsome enough that you'll care.
As of Friday, it's officially Autumn. The box in your window that brought much-needed coolness during the summer is now preventing you from breathing that lovely autumn air (and will soon freeze your face off). Let's take it out.
Incase makes…headphones? Yep. The iPhone case maker and all around Apple accessory extraordinaire is dipping their toe into audio and like all the gear you've come to expect from Incase, the detail and build quality is awesome. But what about the sound?
Some Guy Threw 4,800 Messages in a Bottle Into the Atlantic Ocean and Got 3,100 Responses from All Over the World
Harold Hackett's hobby, tossing messages in a bottle into the ocean, proves that even the most outdated and unreliable form of 'social networking' can still work in our booking the face, twittering the tweet world. He sent 4,800 messages via the Atlantic and received over 3,000 messages back from all over the world.
If you want to use Facebook, but don't want Facebook's tendrils extending all over the internet and following your account, you'll want this. Facebook Disconnect completely blocks the social network's ability to track your account across the web.
We've been waiting for the Facebook iPad app for a little while now, especially since TechCrunch's preview this past summer. In fact, it was done by then, says former Facebook developer Jeff Verkoeyen. The only thing that kept it from us was politics between Facebook and Apple.
Terrifying, isn't it? To imagine that you could be sitting in your favorite easy chair, happily reading UNIX in a Nutshell, and then your body just COMBUSTS—spontaneously—and you're a pile of ashes. A coroner in Ireland recently ruled that's exactly what happened to Michael Faherty, 76, who burned to death last December while minding his own business and collecting his pension.
Multiple retailers have started offering some steep discounts on the Blackberry Playbook. It's great news for you, but probably not so much for RIM. Oh, and it may not even be good news for you.
We've seen a million and one clever ways to smuggle a cell phone into a prison before. Hidden inside buttholes, baked into bread and even shot over with a bow and arrow but flying in a phone with a RC helicopter into the prison might be the most tech savvy way yet. Too bad it crashed.
Rat Island doesn't have a lot going for it. It's called Rat Island, it's mostly rock, barren, covered in poop, and is tiny. But with the right owner (YOU?) it could be the secluded green HQ of your dreams.
Soundbars are awesome because a good one can deliver the room-shaking roar of a much larger system. Simplicity rules. These new Bose soundbars promise the company's awesome sound plus some built-in tech that makes them even easier to setup.
Like I needed another reason to be jealous of astronauts. Looks like those short guys in white suits will be the first to play with 100Mbps laser-powered internet. We'll be getting our Mars-porn about 20 times faster, thank God.
