This is pathetic. Motorola and HTC, with their circus vixen's arsenal of makeup slathered over Google's native UI, ought to be ashamed. This idiotic LG/Prada luxury phone that nobody will buy has one thing going for it: it looks nice.
Christmas! A cheerful time, right? The spirit, the decorations, the gift giving, the time off, it's supposed to be happy! Not for these horrible people. Ungrateful punks and out-of-touch teens have all taken to Twitter to complain about what they didn't get for Christmas and how they now hate life and everything Santa Claus. It's a shit show.
It's Christmas morning. You're all excited as you pillage through layer upon layer of gilded paper and bows, and there it is! A 7-inch Acer Iconica Tab A100! Just what you've not been dying for! Uh. Thanks?
Holy crap! There's leaving your Christmas shopping to the last minute, and then there's LEAVING YOUR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING TO THE LAST MINUTE. Mum isn't going to be happy if you present her with a used air-freshener tomorrow morning. The same gift two years running displays an appalling lack of imagination.
Attention lonely internet lurkers, there are girls out there who totally "get" our internet humour and still love us! Like Audrey, the lovely girl in this video who was proposed to by her boyfriend Tim with internet memes. Watch the video, it's so gosh darn cute.
The Smurfs made a terrible movie but did one good thing: they're adding more colour to the world. Juzcar, a town in Southern Spain, was painted blue for the movie as a sort of publicity stunt but the residents loved it so much they want to keep their homes all blue everything.
If you want to know the true effect of departed despot Kim Jong-il (and his father Kim Il-Sung), just take a look at this sad, sad picture of North Korea and South Korea at night from space. South Korea is like any other modern country, lit up with life. North Korea is completely dark.
Hyperrealist painting is nothing new. Derived from photorealism in the '70s, this early aughts art movement aims to turn actual photographs into paintings. These are extraordinary examples by a young Italian painter, Roberto Bernardi. His command of oil painting just defies belief, doesn't it?
NASA's new VIIRS—or Visible Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite—satellite travels in a sun-synchronous orbit. So as it photographs the planet, each photo is taken at the same time ensuring that all the images have similar lighting.
Perhaps realising that Apple will quickly put an end to this unofficial mod, the K.O. Store is only selling this DIY luminescent logo iPhone kit for just over 36 more hours. So if you want one, you better act fast.
One could argue that everyone in the '80s dressed up like douchebags. That's probably true. I'm guilty of that (thanks mum!). But you can also argue that Apple users wearing Apple gear looked extra-douchebaggy with vagina cleaning foam on top.
Siri is freaking cool, but unfortunately if you're not a hacker the chances of accessing Apple's Darpa-funded A.I. on anything but an iPhone 4S are nil. But a new IOS update makes some Siri hacking legal. Is Apple willing to free Siri?
At last! Microsoft is killing the last vestiges of that dreadful, obsolete program known as Internet Explorer 6. They are going to force the upgrade and that's a good thing—the web needs to get rid of this crap.
Facebook has decided Timeline is ready for the non-New Zealand population, and flipped the global switch: starting today, those still sans-Timeline "will receive a notification on their Profile if they want to 'Get Timeline' or they can visit www.facebook.com/about/timeline."
