Ever Seen “Batteries Not Included?” …Well These Are Way Cooler.

Its like they're staring into my soul with those blue lights.

Every time I walk through one of our local malls, there’s always a kiosk or a store that is demoing those Quadricopters that you link and control with your iPhone or iPad, and every time I think how cool it would be to have one but it would never do the things I want it to do. But these things…oh man, the childish things I would do with these things would embarrass even myself.

There’s a Fine Line Between Genius and Insanity – Theo Jansen Walks That Line Like a Pro.

How many of you remember K’NEX or Erector sets? That shit was so awesome, but so frustrating at the same time cause probably every Erector set I ever got was missing at least one bolt or one beam and I could never finish it. If only I could have been more like this guy.

What’s Your Morning Commute Like?

A friend of mine posted this video the other day and it blew my fucking mind. So many of us complain about our commutes to work be it drive time, traffic or whatever it may be. Am I going to make my BART train in time? IF I get on there in time, will there be a seat available so I can sit and kill time playing my DS or smartphone game so the ride doesn’t suck? Who knows!? Imagine this climb being your morning commute every morning.

23 Days with the Motorola Atrix 4G

Motorola Atrix 4G

I’ve had an iPhone 3G for the past 21 months. The last 12 of those months have been irritating, annoying, frustrating and inconvenient thanks to Apple and the iOS4. I thought “Oh cool, an update to iOS4 for my phone…it should make improvements!” Wrong! It slowed my phone down so much that, at times, it was almost unusable. It shouldn’t take three minutes to type out “Hey man where are you?”. After a few updates with minimal improvements, I went to my local Apple store to see what I could do about it:

“Hey my phone is messed up because of your update, how do I go back to iOS3?”

“Sorry sir, you can’t revert back to iOS3 once iOS4 is installed”

“So you can’t fix it? I can barely use this thing”

“Well you can replace it for $200, but at that point you might as well get the iPhone 4”

“Or I can get an Android…”

The Nintendo 3DS Brings A New Dimension You Never Thought You Needed… Until Now

Love the Color Scheme. Go Sharks!

I’ve spent about a week with Nintendo’s newest beauty, the 3DS, and I’ve got all the juicy details you need to know. Those “hands-on” sessions you tried at Best Buy WILL NOT do the system any justice at all. In fact, Ninty’s newest handheld, despite a few questionable design errors, is going to take the world by storm.

Today’s Forecast: Thunderstorm Followed By Scattered Showers

Let’s face it, many of us don’t use our phones as phones anymore. They’re small, portable computers; hubs to stay connected with friends and occasionally call mom. Yeah, phones still make calls. I know, it’s astounding.

In November 2009, Android made a huge splash with the introduction of the Motorola Droid on Verizon. Fast forward to March 2011…you don’t need a history lesson. The next evolution of Android phones is beginning: 4G connectivity, dual-core processors, front-facing cameras, etc. If you are the average phone user or just barely getting into smartphones, you could honestly care less about these. Luckily, Verizon is keeping their 4G plans the same price as 3G (for now). Right now, you have one solid option on Verizon: the HTC Thunderbolt.

iPhone: Verizon vs. AT&T

The Wall Street Journal just posted an unbiased side-by-side comparison of the new Verizon iPhone 4 to the former AT&T exclusive phone. WSJ claimed that though Verizon’s version of the smartphone had more reliable voice calls, AT&T had the faster data, averaging of about 46% faster. The author did write that the Verizon phone had the same amount of dropped calls in over a week as the AT&T phone had in a day. Read the full details here: http://on.wsj.com/gzxpHA

Of Course, no one has yet to say if early adopters will end up getting screwed over come June when Apple typically announces their new phones. My bet: probably.

I did it all for the Nookie.

2011, arguably, will be known as the year tablet computing truly emerged. Ever since Apple’s iPad was released last April, Android geeks have been poised to take the giant head on, similarly to how they took on the iPhone and Blackberry. The only problem is that up until recently the only Android tablet on the market was the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which has the reputation of being a complete piece of garbage. Right now, and looking forward, one of the biggest contributors to Android tablets gaining praise and popularity might be a device you would least expect: the Barnes and Noble Nook Color.

Seriously.
