Hexels: Settlers of Catan Magnets?
Posted 01/16/13
There are certainly quite a few Kickstarter projects that I want to support. This one stuck out to me for a number of reasons. Catan is an AWESOME board game. If you don't already own it, I highly recommend it. So great! The problem that this project points out is certainly viable. The board, like most board games that have loose pieces making up a board, tends to not stay together. This is exceptionally true in a heated battle! After reading this you might think I'm one of the folks forking over $35 for a set of 19 tiles. NOPE! I'm cheap, baby! And pieces moving isn't a dealbreaker for fun.

Construction Update!
Posted 06/11/12
The yard is coming along nicely and we have been having quite a bit of fun with it. We can't wait to see the end result. For now, we are just going to play around with the heavy machinery that is on hand to get the job done.

True Cost of an iPhone
Posted 04/11/12
This is the coolest thing you'll see today: an infographic about how much it costs to manufacture an iPhone. As you scroll down the infographic, which was designed by Glen Newcomer and Madeline Harris, slowly uncovers every bit of what it takes it create an iPhone. It starts off with how much Apple spends on design and how much money the company has actually made on the product. Then, we go through the whole process of how the iPhone is made from the ground up--literally, as the iPhone is made with material called Coltan, which is used in electronics for its heat-resistance abilities. The end of the info graphic ends on the message that you can do things to ensure you're not being wasteful with your fancy device. Once you're ready to upgrade to the next one, it suggests that you sell your own iPhone to a friend, find an e-waste recycler near you, or skip the next generation. - MacLife

Nike: Cristiano Ronaldo vs Rafa Nadal
Posted 04/03/12
Two of the world's biggest athletes go head-to-head in a battle of explosive speed. On-court, Rafael Nadal's supremacy is almost unrivalled. But against Cristiano Ronaldo and the new Mercurial Vapor VIII, he faces a challenge like never before.

3D Drawing Machine
Posted 02/29/12
"Vision is a rather unique 3D drawing device created by twins Ryan & Trevor Oakes, allowing almost anyone to draw images in perfect perspective using nothing but your eyes and a pen. The device MESSES WITH YOUR BRAIN by using a technique that splits the ocular system, creating two images of the subject, allowing the artist to literally trace one directly onto paper. You really need to watch the video to get a clear idea of how it works, and there’s also some rather touching remarks about the nature of the twins relationship."

The Restart Page
Posted 02/13/12
A tribute to some of the most prominent restart screens from several different operating systems. Some of these really take me back to my nerd youth. Makes me really wish I still had my old IIGs and another machine running OS9. That'd be sweet!

Smart E-Book Interface
Posted 01/23/12
Pretty sweet. Think if you could flip through your eBooks like this? Would almost be like, dare I say it, a REAL book! (Go out to your local library, people. Books rule). Cool tech though!

Danny Macaskill Can Ride a Bike
Posted 08/16/11
What I should have titled the post is "Danny Macaskill is a Crazy Nutter That Can Ride Better Than Anyone" but I have a bit of a size restraint... sorry. Anyways, check out this guy. It especially gets amazing around 2:45 into the vid.

Awesome Cookies
Posted 08/11/11
As much as I love cookies, I don't think that I have the stomach to eat these amazing pieces of sweet work. Man, seeing these makes me hungry, thirsty, and want to watch the Big Lebowski. TRIPLE THREAT!

6 Months of Julia
Posted 01/30/11
Today marks 6 months that we have been blessed with our daughter, Julia. She has been nothing short of the best thing that has ever happened to us. She continues to amaze us and make our hearts swoon. Thank you Honey for being so radical. Thank you also to Kathy, the best Mom I could have ever dreamed of for my family. Linked is a photo gallery of Julia's last 6 months. Consider it a "Greatest Hits".

iCade Returns!
Posted 01/09/11
In April of last year, I was fooled (yes, April fooled) into believing that a cool product that mimicked a stand up arcade for the iPad was on the way. I was sad, upset and dumbfounded that the brilliant idea was in fact fiction. Turns out that many other people were too. So many people thought that it was such a good idea that it is now an actual product. Happy Day! I just hope that they aren't fooling me again. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice... fool me... fool me once, can't fool me again."

Thoughts On Flash
Posted 05/02/10
A great little article by Apple's Steve Jobs about the Flash fight of late. He goes through why he thinks that Flash is less-than-ideal for macs and the future of computing. Very interesting read... especially for Mac nerds and anyone w/ a mobile web browsing device.

The Bloom Box
Posted 02/22/10
“Those two blocks can power the average high-consumption American home -- one block can power the average European home. At least that's the claim being made by K.R. Sridhar, founder of Bloom Energy, on 60 Minutes last night. The original technology comes from an oxygen generator meant for a scrapped NASA Mars program that's been converted, with the help of an estimated $400 million in private funding, into a fuel cell. Bloom's design feeds oxygen into one side of a cell while fuel (natural gas, bio gas from landfill waste, solar, etc) is supplied to the other side to provide the chemical reaction required for power. The cells themselves are inexpensive ceramic disks painted with a secret green "ink" on one side and a black "ink" on the other. The disks are separated by a cheap metal alloy, instead of more precious metals like platinum, and stacked into a cube of varying capabilities -- a stack of 64 can power a small business like Starbucks.”

Free, Essential Mac Apps
Posted 02/17/10
A nice list of FREE apps for everyone in love with their mac. I have pretty much all of these in the list. Trust me, they are all great. Ugh, I hate the CNET embeddable video player. Sorry for that. Too many ever-present controls. Haven't we learned that all controls for online videos should be user initiated? Take note from Vimeo or YouTube.

Mac Bootable Repair Drive
Posted 12/02/09
"It's a good idea to have a strategy in place in case of emergencies. If your hard drive tosses you errors, behaves badly or doesn't even appear, what to do? If programs crash at random, you need to be ready. You can prepare for this by creating a bootable flash drive containing some diagnostic and repair utilities."This tutorial shows you how to do it. Very fascinating. I may have to put one of these together for my own use.

Time Lapse Design
Posted 08/27/09
"After working on the latest cover for Macworld Magazine, Peter Belanger decided to show what is involved in making a cover, focusing on the three main areas: photography, photoshop and design." Very cool, I would say.

Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet
Posted 07/23/09
I'm almost positive this will become a game. It should cause wow, it looks awesome! I want it for the visuals AND the music. So good! If anyone has any further info on this, please let me know. Thanks for finding Fitz.

There I Fixed It
Posted 06/29/09
Hilarious photos of people fixing their everyday problems their own way. Some get very MacGyver-ish.

AT&T Policy Issues
Posted 06/19/09
I really have had some issues with AT&T in the last few years. I love my iPhone, but the carrier I am forced to use pretty much blows on all policy fronts. Today, I hear news of more reasons for everyone to throw mud their way.

Blue Screen of Death
Posted 05/01/09
A survival guide to all of those messages you hate to see. Fine... I'll say it again. Just get a mac to avoid owning a problem filled, problem factory.

The Battle of Fart Apps
Posted 02/19/09
There is an abundance of apps in the iTunes store. Some are great, some are not so much and some that just make you wonder. There are apps in every category... EVERY category. To me, this is great. If I think it would be great to have an app that uses the tilt control to turn my phone into a level, I know I can find it (and have). Really, I've said it before and I'll say it again. iPhones are the greatest things ever.

Bill Gates
Posted 06/25/08
Quite a funny read for any mac-loving computer user out there. I love reading how even the leader of Microsoft can't figure out how to use their own stuff.

Machine Girl Trailer
Posted 12/14/07
This is by far the craziest movie trailer I have ever seen. Def need to not be offended by gratuitous blood and violence to proceed to link. Wow. Go machine girl.

Posted 11/07/07
Ok, so you all know that it isn't often that I complain about Apple so this will be a very, very rare rant. iPhoto, one of the iLife suite applications has become one of my most hated programs. It is a great program in spirit but the performance is crappy at best. I have around 3,000 photos in my library, which isn't that big at all and I have a super powerful Intel Mac. Come On!! It takes forever to scroll, resize or do anything in that program and if it is open, the rest of my apps perform crappy too.Bottom line, I don't know what you have to do Apple but get on it. I'm too used to you guys serving gold to be satisfied with the current state of your photo management software.

Mac OS Leopard

It's COMING!! Check out the countdown timer. Oh boy! Gimme gimme gimme!

Apple Event - Sept 5
Posted 08/30/07
I love the announcement of these Apple events. It always means that something awesome is coming and by the sound of it, it may be in the form of new iPods. Only time will tell.

Ozzfest for no $$$
Posted 02/07/07
Amazing. Ozzfest will be payed for, in it's entirety, by sponsorship deals. I somewhat grimaced at the idea of moshing next to "The Noid" and "Ronald McDonald" but hey, I'll deal, if the show is actually free to all of the fans. Truly revolutionary, I hope they can actually pull this off. Ozzy, you have retaken your thrown as coolest guy I can't understand. Sorry Keith Richards, Ozzy wants his scepter back.

802.11n Enabler
Posted 01/30/07
Along with today's iPod Shuffle line additions, Apple has released the promised 802.11n Enabler for compatible Macs.I'm a little confused by this. Does this mean that my existing Airport Base Station is capable of transmitting this new advanced wireless capability? If so, that is fantastic. Oh, and why does it cost $1.99? What is that all about?

From a PC?
Posted 10/31/06
This might be the first time I have ever been happy about posting from a PC laptop. Why is that you ask? Well, it is because it is also my new MacBook Pro which is rocking bootcamp so I can start up in Windows XP if I ever feel like it. Phaaaaaaat! This machine rules.

.mac to Update
Posted 09/29/06
"Earlier this week Apple announced that a new version of webmail for Mac users is “coming soon.” There was a bit of chatter about this around the blogosphere, with most people concluding that this fresh coat of paint on the inferior .mac product is a bit of a yawn."Well, I think it is neat... what do you think?

New BIG iMacs
Posted 09/06/06

Cleaning w/ Ice!
Posted 06/13/06
Dry ice blasting uses compressed air to shoot dry ice pellets to clean in a way similar to sandblasting, but with some major differences. It can clean heavy duty machinery, yet can be gentle enough to clean books. Weird link for me, eh?

Supreme Commander
Posted 05/24/06

Dang Expensive
Posted 10/27/05
I was on Apple's store website today and thought I would have some fun by creating the uber-mac. This mac was comprised of the new Quad-core processor, 16GB of ram, a TB of hard drive space... basically the best they offer. The price tag? Just a shade over 23 K... Wowza'!

New Apple G5s
Posted 10/19/05

New Products!
Posted 10/14/05
Well, this isn't exactly new news but I had to make a post about it anyways. At a recent media event, Apple's CEO Steve Jobs announced major upgrades to the popular iMac and large iPods. Last but not least, iTunes is mucho better now. The iMac is beefier (performance-wise), skinnier, has a remote for couch browsing.The iPod now supports video, AWESOME! Not only are we talking about music videos, Apple announced a partnership with ABC so that you can now download certain TV show episodes. More toys, oh joy!

... Follow Up
Posted 10/05/05
Ok, so this is day 2 in my hell. I can now start up my laptop. All seems well for about 10 minutes before things start to slow down and seize up. The hard drive at this point makes a clicking sound and you can't do squat. So, I can then shut it down, let it cool off and start over. This is working nicely for backing up all of my software, I have almost eveything off now. Now I have to take my machine back to Apple and let them fix it. 10 DAYS! AHHH! Oh well, I'm just glad I got everything off. Lessons learned are... 1. Backup your data daily and 2. Get Applecare on any machine you buy, especially a laptop.

Music You Gotta Know
Posted 08/01/05
Unsure of what to listen to today? Well, I put iTunes on full random and came up with a super gem. The Final Cut is one of Pink Floyd's greatest albums (right up there w/ Dark Side for me). So if you need a great start to this Monday... get to listening... if you don't already own this musical wonder, scrape together 10 bucks and get to purchasing.

Machall yet again proving why they are kings among web comics. Best art hands down. Also anyone who hasn't played this game is a liar. And a big fat one at that!

Katamari Damacy
Posted 03/13/05
Been sick the last few days. I went to fry's to find a video game to occupy my time and ended up picking up Katamari Damacy. What a weird game! But it's awesome! You are Prince of the Cosmos and you roll around a ball that stuff sticks to. As the ball gets bigger you collect bigger and bigger stuff. It's amazingly addictive and best of all it's only 20 bucks! If you have a PS2 then go pick this up! Haven't seen a game this fun or original in a long time.

Life is Random
Posted 02/03/05
Well, at least we can see the slogan that is going along with the new ipod. I don't want to get too caught up in the rumor mill but here is what I found... "It is without any screen (that's maybe because the slogan is "Life is random!"), small, with a shape more vertical than the other iPod. The color is white, and it seems like a small remote control that fits confortably in a single hand."

WPA Kicks Ass
Posted 02/03/05
The WPA was an american propoganda machine of the New Deal era. The Library of Congress has about 900 of them online. And, yes, they kick ass.
