Feast your eyes on this 600-DPI e-paper screen

I have to say, I really like e-paper. And it’s come a long way since the crude early Kindles — nowadays you have e-readers that are as high-resolution as the best phones and iPads. And they’re set to get even better if E Ink’s latest screens make it into a few products, as I hope they do. It’s Display Week in LA, which is exactly what it sounds like: All the display makers get together and admire each other’s displays. This year there’s no ...

What 40 Years Means to a Star Wars Fans

My first glimpse of the series was not Star Wars itself, but Space Balls. A parody of a film series I had yet to see. It was recorded onto an old VHS tape from a local television station. Where my parents roared at the parody of it all, I fell in love with the unique aesthetic of the characters, ships and distant worlds. It wasn’t until family friends came into town to experience MGM Studios new Star Tours experience. This would be the firs...

Zuckerberg sheds tears and gets political in Harvard commencement speech

Mark Zuckerberg shed tears, threw shade, and got (mildly) political in a commencement speech to his alma mater on Thursday. The Facebook CEO and Harvard dropout touched on everything from income inequality to Beyonce to Donald Trump (though he danced around referring to the president by name).  Fresh off a cross-country road trip of staged meet-and-greets, the billionaire seemed genuinely excited to return to the school where he first conce...

Firefox Marketing Head Expresses Concerns Over Google's Apparent 'Only Be On Chrome' Push

Eric Petitt, head up Firefox marketing, writing in a blog : I use Chrome every day. Works fine. Easy to use. There are multiple things that bug me about the Chrome product, for sure, but I'm OK with Chrome. I just don't like only being on Chrome. And that's what Chrome wants.

Sony revamps its Digital Paper tablet with new screen and interface

Sony’s mammoth 13-inch Digital Paper tablet, essentially a huge Kindle you can write on, is still a pretty rare sight, but I’ve always had a soft spot for it.

The DPT-RP1 replaces the DPTS1 — catchy names, right? — and makes some changes that its users will certainly appreciate. The screen itself, built with E Ink’s...

So what does the marriage of TV and smartphone look like? AT&T’s CEO Randall Stephenson offered some hints in a spe...

Floating Tricks You Should See!

In this experiment we used lots of short ball chains and connected them all. *Note - if you don't have tons of ball chains, you can use Rigatoni pasta and pass a rope through them connecting them all. You can even color them different colors for an added effect too! Get a small glass jar or if you decided to go with the pasta version, get a large bowl. Start adding one end of the chain into the jar. You don't want to add it all at once beca...
