Puzzle alarm

This is so cool. I need one. Puzzle Alarm Clock Though I’m fairly certain I’d simply smash the damn thing with a hammer on day #2.

OS icon guide

It’s wtf time again as someone with waaaay too much time on their hands brings us the Operating System icon guide – with clickable icons taking you to app shots, etc. There are also tabs for splash screens, sounds, interfaces and components.

Enormous woman to be built

The woman, with breasts and hips up to 100ft high, will be created 10 miles north of Newcastle from the waste material generated by open-cast mining, with each of her enormous curves concealing millions of tons of mining spoil. Now this is a good way to use excavated ground!

Dutch government issues Root CA

The Dutch government is the first in the world to both issue a Root CA (Certification Authority) and present it for inclusion in a major browser. (Firefox, duh!) Users of Firefox 1.0.2 can use View -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Certificates -> Manage certificates -> Authorities and scroll down to Staat der Nederlanden to verify […]

How to steal a house

Simply find a couple of meth addicts and put them to carrying it away. Brick by brick.

Save your stolen phone

Clever – a little java app that installs itself on your phone, and as soon as the simcard is changed emails the new number to you. You can then choose to have a message sent to the phone every 10 minutes with your contactdetails on it. SIMWatcher by Denda

Save Toby Sucks

This guy promises to castrate the owner of savetoby.com if he receives 30K US$. http://www.heavy.com/savetobysucks/?partner=aff07

Return of the Suckage

George Lucas is describing the forthcoming finale to his Star Wars series as “Titanic in space.” Oh boy.. Obviously, fans would love to see a movie about Darth Vader running around killing people. I’m not telling that story, and I’m not interested in that. That’s not what the movie is. What an asshat. The one […]

Addidas Intelligent Trainer review

At engadget – unfortunately they don’t tell you how much these things weigh.

Human area network

Forget cables and bluetooth – 2MBps using your skin!

New way to detect planets

Well, they were doing it by looking at how light bends and stuff before, because large mass objects (such as planets) have a gravitational pull (allthough that theory is in doubt considering the flight path of the discovery spacecraft). Anyhow, now they can detect planets and maybe the wind conditions on them by using infrared […]

Neural computer interfaces

Well, I knew this could be done using electrodes, but Braingate drills into your skull and connects the wire directly to your brain! Very curious how long you have to train to be able to use this…

Massive aircraft carrying supersubs

They found a Japanese one from WWII – and who said it wasn’t possible to fly bombers from submarines?

Meet People With Herpes (dot net)

I’m not really sure what to say about this. http://www.mpwh.net/

If you do things at speed for long distances

Then a slide rule watch isn’t a bad idea. But Breiltling Old Nav still looks better with the same functionality. But a waaaay higher price!

Week 35

Every language flamewar ever

Moore’s Law! Mooooooore’s Laaaaaaw! http://www.deftcode.com/archives/every_language_war_ever.html

Yahoo Buzz Game

Google isn’t the only player to experiment – Yahoo has its own public research page. The Tech Buzz Game is a very interesting fantasy prediction market for high-tech products, concepts, and trends. In the Web Application Frameworks market, I’m betting on Rails.

Human extinction

What’s it going to be? Asteroid impact, World War III, Global Warming, Global Dimming, Biowarfare or is it just a minor die off post Global Peak Oil? Consider Voluntary Human Extinction as a more humane alternative.

Blackholes ‘n fireballs, my favorite combo

The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) in New York apparently creates fireballs (whee!) that have the characteristics of a Black Hole, with particles disappearing into the fireball’s core and reappearing as thermal radiation. Funky. I’ll take two to go. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/4357613.stm
