They're calling it a 3D laser display, but I see all my holographic dreams being projected without a screen in mid-air. Now if we could only stuff it into an R2 unit.
I used to jailbreak my iPhone because stock iOS couldn't do the things I wanted it to. But then iOS got better and I stopped. But one thing I desperately miss from my jailbreak days is SBSettings. It's a way to control your iPhone's settings from your home screen. And now you can (kind of) do the same thing with IconSettings. Without jailbreaking.
Rumours that Google may be unveiling its new music service on Wednesday in the US gained a bit of credibility today when Technodroidve reporter Ricardo Romero (somehow) discovered the Music Store on his HTC Inspire 4G. While purchases and downloads weren't activated, these screeners show that the service may include artist recommendations and a Free Song of the Day. Check out more shots at Technodroidve.

Ice Cream Sandwich is on its way with the Galaxy Nexus, but now Google's released its source code through the Android Open Source Project, meaning everyone can dig in and start working on their ports (and bastardisations) for other devices.
Think only jerks can catch a break in this cruel world? Nope. David Rand, a Harvard University researcher, studied the behavior of 800 individuals he recruited through Amazon's Mechanical Turk to prove it.
You'll have to go see the new Muppets movie to see it in its entirety (not that you need another reason) but here's a first look at Pixar's new Toy Story short Small Fry which finally gives us a look at what life is like for those crappy, and quickly forgotten, fast food toys.
Instead of having an obnoxious wedding photographer trying to grab candid shots of the guests during the reception, Instructables user letMeBeFranks built this gigantic Lomography camera that served as a private photobooth. At £95, constructed from scrounged parts and equipment from around his home, it was a lot cheaper than renting one too.
Sure, anyone can pull off the "salt in the sugar shaker" or "I shagged your wife" prank, but it takes true ingenuity to pull of something like this: a door-triggered air horn. Here come the heart attacks!
The iPhone and the iPad are card-carrying members. Modern Warfare 3 is, like, the President. I'm talking, of course, about the Million-Plus Preorder Club. Now the Amazon Kindle Fire has joined the ranks. Before anyone even touched a Kindle Fire.
f aircraft porn. It's a typical day on the USS Carl Vinson, the third of the US Navy's Nimitz-class nuclear supercarriers. Yeah, it's the carrier from that NCAA basketball game.
So much for getting a good night's sleep tonight. Researchers at the Tokyo Metropolitan University have created this disturbing robot cat mask that's able to mimic the movements of the wearer's eyes and mouth using a non-contact interface to measure the movements of the muscles in their face.
Thanks to a new app that uses the same approach as submarines for measuring distance, you can now add 'semi-reliable tape measure' to the list of things your iOS devices can do.
Can we ask a question? Have you ever heard of a board game called Labyrinth? Apparently it's won awards by the truckload, been played by 13 million people, and it's been in circulation for a quarter of a century. But we've never, ever, not once in all our travels, ever had the opporunity to play it. Have we been missing out? Were all those years playing Mouse Trap a complete waste of time?
In a landmark interview with Wired, Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos had what looks like his hour's worth of fame. Buried amongst his thoughts on Steve Jobs, Google and Facebook, Bezos talks about what he calls "shiny things," that is, products with all gloss and no substance. The opposite of what his team at Amazon is doing, of course.
