Tech Word of the Day: Martian Address

You may be thinking that we are populating Mars and setting up networks with martian addresses, but we aren't. And as far as I know NASA isn't either.

It could just be sitting on the network and not assigned to any physical device such as a computer, print...

Crescent Moon's Innovative Snowshoe Is Built Like a Flip-Flop

Snowshoes have been around for 5,700 years. But this year Boulder, Colorado–based Crescent Moon has made the world’s first all-foam version. Velcro bindings keep your shoes strapped to a teardrop-­shaped platform made from two layers of ethylene-vinyl acetate, or EVA, the same stuff used to fashion flip-flops. The snowshoes might look low-tech, but the combination of cleats and tire-like treads provide ample traction, especially on hardpack...

Why Amazon is the new Microsoft

A few years ago, chatbots were supposed to take over as a leading way to interact with the internet. They would live on our phones and in our messaging apps. Whenever we needed anything, all we had to do was type out a question. Things are turning out ... differently. Chatbots, bots, virtual assistants and agents are all about the conversational UI — about interacting with a computer through natural-language words and sentences. The convent...

Simple Taco Soup

We first sampled this chili-like soup at a church dinner. It's a warming dish on a cold day. And since it uses packaged seasonings and several cans of vegetables, it's a simple taco soup to prepare. —Glenda Taylor, Sand Springs, Oklahoma Original link

Simpsons Meme Uses Video Games To Make Cool Videos

I'll admit, the Steamed Hams meme was something I kind of rolled my eyes at. The scene itself, a Principal Skinner vignette from the season seven episode "22 Short Films About Springfield." is hilarious enough as it is. As someone whose sense of humor is almost entirely derived from obsessive rewatches of The Simpsons, trying to make something funnier out of what was already greatness bothered me. Then I realized that this meme, centered ar...

Colorado Cities Keep Voting To Build Their Own Broadband Networks

So we've long mentioned how incumbent ISPs like Comcast have spent millions of dollars quite literally buying shitty, protectionist laws in more than twenty states. These laws either ban or heavily hamstring towns and cities from building their own broadband networks, or in some cases from even engaging in public/private partnerships.

Easy Origami Modular Star

This is one of my mom's favorite pieces of origami. I make a lot of origami, so that's saying something. The star is modular, so you have to make a decent amount of pieces. Don't worry though, they're really simple to make. I guess I should get into the instructable. Step 1: Gather Your Paper. You're supposed to use 16 pieces of paper to make this, but you can get away with as little as 12. But you really need at least 12. Step 2: Fold the ...
