I'm not that big a fan of the vino but I really want to drink the Cabernet Sauvignon from Ian Hutchinson's vineyard in Chile's Cachapoal Valley. Why? Well, for some reason, it's aged with an eight-centimetre, 4.5 billion years old meteor from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. SPACEWINE.
Unlike getting hold of iOS apps, it's always been possible to trawl the web for software that doesn't appear in the Android Market. But that process is about to get even easier, because soon there will be an unofficial store for banned Android apps.
RIM's co-CEOs, Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie — aka the keyboard-loving odd couple — are finally realising they're running the BlackBerry into the ground and jumping ship before it's too late. That is, Lazaridis and Balsillie are stepping down at RIM. Done. Gone. Bye bye. The new CEO of RIM will be former COO Thorsten Heins. He has quite the job ahead of him, to say the least.
In what looks like a desperate preventive measure in reaction to the Megaupload shutdown, FileSonic has disabled all file sharing capabilities and is now nothing more than a personal storage solution. It looks like the Feds' scare tactic of going after the big fish in Megaupload is beginning to scare other file sharing sites.
Dante Autullo is a tough guy. He's also, according to his wife, a very accident prone guy. So when he accidentally hit his head with a nail gun and only saw a scratch, he didn't think anything of it...
The answer is pretty obvious, right? It's cheaper labour! But is that the only reason why Apple (and other companies) outsource its workforce to China as opposed to keeping them at home? No. There's more. The NY Times has an excellent report on why Apple ignores America when it comes to making the iPhone and how that's better for Apple.
I'm either on drugs or these photos were somehow taken from the reflection of puddles in the street. It may be both. But! It's certainly the latter. Ira Fox, the photographer, created the photo series Reflections by cruising the streets of New York and snapping pics of people who can be seen in reflections off the puddles.
There's a good chance you've seen most of the photos featured in Tim Mantoani's new book, Behind Photographs. But I doubt you've seen the faces of the photographers behind those shots, who are finally given the notoriety they all deserve.
Like the hilarious Chris Brown Look at Me Now video before it, this music video of LMFAO's played too much Party Rock song is made completely with MS Paint.
Our tools for extinguishing fire are almost as primitive as our forefathers who discovered it. Extinguishers that attempt to choke or disrupt the chemical reaction often do just as much damage, so DARPA's been working on a high-tech alternative.
Created by Berlin-based design studio The Product, this set of three unique turntables was built for the premiere of Volkswagen's new Beetle at the 2011 IAA motor show. Instead of vinyl, it uses discs with concentric geometric patterns to produce music.
If you liked Carl Sagan's autotuned music videos celebrating the wonders of the cosmos, you will like this one celebrating the wonders of evolution too, featuring David Attenborough, Richard Dawkins and Bill Nye.
Taking a shorter break than their last vacation, Anonymous is back at it already. Reports are coming in that they had completely knocked out CBS.com for a good period of time. This wasn't your regular DDoS attack because if you went to CBS.com at the time Anon attacked it, there was nothing except an index page with a single file. Basically, Anonymous gained access to CBS.com and deleted EVERYTHING.
Krispy Kreme (of all companies) created a similar kind of sandal as part of a promotion a few years ago, but Kusa's grass flip flops have two distinct differences. They're made with artificial turf, and you can actually buy them.
I love everything about these ninja-inspired throwing star sticky notes from ThinkGeek. Everything except the fact they're made from black paper, making them next to impossible to write on with anything other than a special marker.
