I Just Made Love may be the only free application that you must never download. I mean it—you wouldn't like to have this Foursquarish app any closer to your iPhone than what you would like to have herpes near your genitals.
Given Spotify's now limiting free free users of its service to just 10 hours per month, stumping up 99p for unlimited streaming suddenly sounds a lot more attractive. Available today in 18 countries, Rara.com has rights to music from Universal; Sony; EMI; Warner and indie labels, adding up to 10 million tracks for streaming -- that's five million less than Spotify, fact-fans.
Star Wars and Star Trek very probably have the most rabid fans known to geekdom. But they're constantly trying to one-up each other. What's better! Who's more awesome! Even the stars—William Shatner and Carrie Fisher—have gotten into it with each other. STOP IT. NO MORE. There's a bigger enemy out there: Twilight.
I usually love me some FPS games, but there's something off putting about fake shooting up the real world in Google Maps Street View with an assault rifle. Try it out yourself, put a location in Pool Worldwide and start shooting fake real people and things in Google Maps. Is it weird for you?
Wow, just when you thought it couldn't get any crazier, RIM's self-destruction takes another insane turn. This time two drunk executives caused such a ruckus on a plane that they had to be handcuffed with plastic restraints and adhesive tape, which they promptly chewed through and then kicked-off again.
How is the world's top search engine going to put its software in every TV on earth? Not by flying commercial, like some sort of company for poor people! Let's just buy a few spare private jets, just in case.
Facebook's big report on what we humans blabbed about online is here! The good news: three of the top ten topics of the year were important. The bad news: the rest is inane, sad, incoherent shit. We suck.
As a true film aficionado it's interesting to dig deeper into the history of photography, and give wet-plate photography a shot. If you manage to avoid poisoning yourself or blowing up half your city, it can give awesome results!
The idea of pressing a button and seeing a photo pop out and develop in front of your eyes may be an old idea, but it's recently been introduced to a new crowd thanks to The Impossible Project, which began three years ago after Polaroid announced it was ceasing instant film production. I caught up with their founder Dr. Florian Kaps this film week to discuss future products, and to find out why their film isn't as expensive as everyone thinks it is.
Motorola's got a new tablet 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?
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.
What is this forest floating 1000 feet above Taiwan's skyline, apparently sitting on a blue glow of anti-gravity beams? It's the Taiwan Tower, a giant steel superstructure that may become the most surreal piece of engineering I've ever seen.
Since I started pinhole-ing the world, I've had the strongest desire to make a special camera, with the purpose of shooting just one photograph. The purpose was to sacrifice the camera in the process of photo creation – I wanted the camera to become the photograph. To help you understand, the process from the camera to the photograph is the same that ties the baby bird to the egg: the bird grows protected from the shell and when it's ready, it breaks the egg and comes out.
I still remember the day I ditched my old film Canon and "upgraded" to a 4-megapixel digital Ricoh camera. But recently I've gone back a few steps, savouring the creativity that courses through my veins every time I pop a roll of 35mm into a camera, and the fear of the impending, unknown results. Whether you shoot film or not, I hope you learn something from Giz UK's first theme week.
World War II is still affecting life in Europe: 45,000 people had to be evacuated after two extremely dangerous bombs were found in the Rhine River, 65 years after they were dropped by British and American bombers.
