If I've learned anything over the years, it's that some things, once they've taken hold, feed off of themselves. They grow stronger with the passing of time, envelop more of the population, more of the calendar, more of everything. Sometimes they even swallow up other monsters of the zeitgeist, creating new uber-phenomena. Cellphones were once non-essential kit, but once they ate a few cameras, interwebs and computer-like processors, the smartphone was born and the world rejoiced. One of the biggest, most unstoppable phenomena in the known universe is holiday creep. This year in my neighborhood wintry decorations were put up by the city even before Halloween! Well, I'm here to report that the holidays are at it again. Its most recent target? The Internet meme.
Who says you can't be a superhero for a day?
Magician Rich Ferguson has devised a mindlessly irreverent prank for Halloween this year. He's using some tech wizardry his head appear to fall off his shoulders, and it works wonders on public streets.
LG wanted to show off how realistic the image on their new IPS monitors is, so they decided to play a prank and scare the crap out of a bunch of people.
Most of us are pretty familiar with common everyday emoticons like :) or >:[, but what about when they get really fancy with things like （￣□￣；） and (^_^;)?
Hooray! We can pre-order the iPhone 5 today. Just be sure you know what you're getting first, unlike some people.
I'm not a big Doctor Who fan. Yes, I said it. I like other British TV shows that Americans don't seem to get (like Are You Being Served and Keeping Up Appearances), but not Doctor Who. At all. So this post about a gesture remote will be only about the remote and not about the TV show. You've been warned.
Crossing the road to get to Paris's famous Arc de Triomphe is not for the feint of heart. With 12 avenues converging to form up to 10 lanes of traffic going in an endless circle, trying to cross on foot probably means near certain death. That is, unless you have your own portable crosswalk.
Do you know what would hurt more than subjecting a new iPad to a rifle and shotgun? If you tripped and fell while carrying two shiny iMacs. AwesomenessTV decided to punk unsuspecting pedestrians into thinking their guys were clumsy enough to drop and shatter some fake "new" Macs.
If you're part of the NASA Curiosity rover team, what could be more awesome than successfully landing on Mars? Actually, nothing. But a music video paying homage to your efforts as the revitalization of NASA cool is a close second.
