Hey movies have 3D, why not throw that winning technology at Google Maps. Beginning today, Google is testing WebGL technology with their maps.
Sometimes, smartphone screens are just not big enough. Linking it to a projector is helpful but it's hardly portable and before you know it, the battery's gone. The Monolith, a triple-threat iPhone case that works as a projector and a battery pack, can light up your room while keeping your gear booboo-free.
The iPhone 4S is faster than the iPhone 4. How much faster? And how much faster than its non-Apple kin? We did some benchmark bench pressing to find out. Feel the burn!
You know the trick. When the game wouldn't load properly, you would take it out, blow in the open end to dislodge dust, grit, peanut butter, or what-have-you from the electrical contacts, then put it back in and hope that it worked (or repeated as necessary).
Thank goodness there are so many certifiably insane people in this world. That way the rest of us don't have to strap a camera to our helmets, ride up dozens of stories on the outside of an elevator, and plummet to near-certain doom in the middle of a busy Spanish city on a busy afternoon. Like these guys did.
It's science! And it's not just Swedes who Italians can drink under the table. It's also Latvians, Lithuanians, and Estonians.
The elevated radiation levels discovered in Tokyo's Setagaya Ward have been confirmed—thankfully—as not having originated from the damaged Fukushima power plant. So what was causing the Geigers to jump? A stash of radium-226 under a home's floorboards.
Google Buzz, the company's much maligned foray into social networking that was about as popular as genital herpes, is dying. Oh, you thought it was already dead? Not yet. But that's probably why Google is killing it.
I hate optical illusions. They make me feel like there's a hole in my puny brain. This illusion, where two cigarettes — one big, one small — are actually the same freaking size is making my brain light on fire. HOW. HOW. HOW. [The Awesomer]
This blows my mind. There is brain juice flowing out of my ears. Chan Hwee Chong, an artist, only needs one pen to create beautiful pieces of art. On top of that, Chong never even lifts the pen from the paper. It's all done in one stroke.
How do you land 140,000 allied troops on an 5-mile long stretch of beach under heavy German bombardment? Very carefully. And to ensure the deployment of forces without stranding landing craft while juking Cmdr. Rommel out of his sneakers, the Allies employed these machines to predict the height of the tides.
Marvel's uncanny app is finally out on Android. The app lets you buy and read Marvel comics, from new stuff like the very awesome Spider Island to classics like the Dark Phoenix Saga. Go ahead and nerd out, because this is amazing news.
Forever Drive is not, as the name might suggest, a celebration of Nicholas Winding Refn’s impossibly cool paean to Eighties European cinema. Although it features plenty of cruising around neon-drenched streets, it doesn’t have Ryan Gosling being all silent and moody; there’s no unwatchably brutal violence, nor does it make you sit through several minutes of meaningful looks in slo-mo as a gorgeous, thudding electropop soundtrack subliminally whispers “you will buy me on iTunes the minute you leave the cinema”.
