When I was a kid, I wanted to be a drummer. When it came time to assign instruments in elementary school, I started on a practice drumming pad. The music teacher never let me graduate to a real drum because… Read more ›

Early in 2013, the old aluminum Mac Pro was pulled from sale in the European Union due to the fact that their pro-level desktop fell afoul of new E.U. regulations that prohibit computers from having fans that spin so fast… Read more ›     

Draw-Something-2

It’s almost been five weeks since OMGPOP CEO Dan Porter teased the release of Draw Something 2, and had Ryan Seacrest advertise the title on Twitter. But it’s finally time to dust off your sketching fingers, because the sequel to one of 2012′s most popular social games is now available to download on iPhone.

The basics of the game are very much the same this time around; players take it in turns to draw all  [Read More…]

Fingers, A ‘Handy’ Way To Cut Cable Clutter

Fingers is a concept design, but it’s so simple and clever, and so easy to make for yourself with just a piece of stiff card and a pair of scissors, that it seems worth taking a look. It’s yet another desk-tidying cable manager, but you’re going to love it, I promise.

The idea behind Fingers is that it has, well, fingers. Plastic fingers which let your cables move easily between their non-existent knuckles  [Read More…]

If you made a Venn Diagram with circles for the name and the description of the Aluminum Sliding Bumper Case for iPad Mini, then it would consist of just one circle.

The case is a two-part, rubber-lined bumper which slides onto the littlest iPad. Ir protects the edges from bumps, as bumpers are designed to do, but it also adds a grip all around the  [Read More…]

It makes me smile, because I used to be like that. I’m much faster now, thanks to an abundance of repetition. But I’m still no maestro — so I’ve employed a secret  [Read More…]

 

Daniel hangs ten at IFA.

 

If you’d shown me the Hi-Call a few years ago I would have ridiculed it and moved on, probably forgetting that this stupid Bluetooth glove even existed. Now, though, in a world infected with “sanitation engineers” so in-demand that they have Bluetooth headsets wedged permanently into their ears, and idiots wander the streets holding their in-line mics up to their mouths as they speak, the Hi-Call  [Read More…]
