A quirky bug in Mac OS X lets you freeze any window half-way through the minimize animation, providing for a completely askew window that retains the intended functionality. Obviously this isn’t particularly useful, but it can be fun to use and it’s very easy to replicate, here’s how to do it:
Head to System Preferences and go to the “Dock” settings, and make sure “Genie [Read More...]
Check out the inexplicable Samsung ad above. A weirdo sitting in a barren landscape, giggling at apples, as a synthesizer farts. Then, suddenly, he does a weird dance with Ninjas. Hey, don’t you want to buy a Galaxy S4 now? It’s completely stupid, and Steve Jobs would have hated it. How do you know? Because [...]

Meet the DSPTCH case, the perfect vowel-free traveling companion for your iPad mini. It’s a simple envelope-style sleeve, only it has a bunch of unobtrusive straps and pockets on the outside to wrangle your on-the-road essentials. The iPad mini is clearly best left naked, like a small child running around at a German family gathering. [...]

Thereâ€™s a lobbying and PR firm that exists solely to oppose Google. Itâ€™s made up of companies that compete directly with Google.
Their latest effort involves the filing of an antitrust complaint with European authorities over Android.
Hereâ€™s why the complaint fails the tests of both truth and intelligence.
FairSearch is a coalition of companies that compete with Google who have banded together to lobby governments to [Read More...]
Ah, the iCar. We’ve been waiting for Apple to make a real one for years, ever since they transformed a Porsche into one way back in 1980. And we know Steve Jobs was game.
So the promise that Volkswagen is preparing an iBeetle might, at first, seem of interest to Apple fans and auto enthusiasts. But don’t get too excited, because the iBeetle is lame.
Google has just unveiled an absolutely mystifying new product apparently created by insane millionaires, for even crazier millionaires: the Pixel, a $ 1,300 Chromebook with a Retina-like display.Â Although it’s attractive and well specced, it might be the most inexplicable product announced this year.
For a Chromebook, the Pixel has some impressive specs: it boasts a 2,560 x 1700, 12.85-inch display with a 239ppi pixel resolution. Inside, is a dual-core Intel Core [Read More...]
It’s December, which means that the lack of real news combined with my absurd love for iPhone and camera-related gewgaws takes over, bring a rain of plastic crap down on the pages of Cult of Mac. Sometimes this intersects with a genuinely useful accessory, and today we bring you the 3-in-1 Lightning Camera Connector.
Apple somewhat inexplicably ditched the super-portable little dongles in its iPad camera connection kit for a pair of cables, the SD-to-Lightning adapter [Read More...]
Do! Not! Panic!
The Don’t Panic case is like a pair of comfy slippers for your iPad. As the name suggests, just using it is relaxing, the iPad-acessory equivalent of a valium or a well-mixed Old Fashioned at the end of a long day.
The floppy felt and leather sleeve is also a little like your embarrassing uncle. He has some horrible habits, and annoys you to death some times, but you can’t [Read More...]
There are some rather prodigious — nay, daring — affirmations made about the gratuitous ($ 0.00) iPad / iPod app Finger Cut by its developer, Poland’s Jan Mazurczak: “It’s the most stupid app on the App Store!” he asseverates, appending, “downloaded three million times!” Well it’s certainly cutting edge….
Finger Cut is a somewhat undemanding app conceptually. It amounts to a spinning, loudly buzzing, circular saw set against a dark background, which [Read More...]
Bored? Launch Terminal and get ready for some completely stupid tricks to keep yourself entertained. You’ll be listening to Horse Ebooks blab away, watching Star Wars in ASCII, playing retro games, toasting your CPU cores with a repetitive phrase, and even talking to a virtual psychotherapist. The hidden joys of the command line are upon us:
1: Watch Star Wars in ASCII
Yes, really, you can watch the original Star [Read More...]
