Post a Comment

Music aficionados take note: a revolution is coming to music listening, and its name is Pono.

Despite my respect (and as an amateur musician/songwriter that’s seen Mr. Young live) and awe for Neil Young and Crazy Horse, I personally thought a triangular iPod, mp3 music player that was too wide to comfortably fit in your pocket a dumb idea . . . and I was dead wrong.

Here’s why:

Feed Boba Fett To the Star Wars Sarlacc In Your Toilet

2 Comments

If you are feeling brave in your bathroom, then attempt to save Lando Carlissian from suffering the same fate as Boba Fett and falling prey to the infamous pit of Sarlacc In Your Toilet.

sarlacc-in-the-toilet

“Boba Fett, where?” Han Solo yelled in blind exasperation.

And with that Han accidentally bumps into Mr. Fett’s jetpack and pitches him into the oddly feminine pit. The galaxy’s most notorious bounty hunter and badass dies – not by being cut into shreds by a raging Skywalker laser sword, but like a little bitch.

The desert monster opens its . . . self . . . and swallows Boba Fett with a satisfying burp for good measure.

Can they do that? Apparently, much to the chagrin of the oil companies, they can.

Ivanpah Solar went online on February 13, 2014 providing enough output to feed 140,000 California homes and all of our iPads and other plugin goodies held within with clean, renewable energy.

How does it work?

The party rages under the blistering sun, and while you really do not want to get out of the pool, you also really do not want your beer to get warm while you soak; the solution . . . take a Chillsner pill.

You can’t ice the beer now, can you? Corkcicle has crafted the Chillsner to give your life, your every precious sip, the sheer coldness it deserves (unless you are in Europe in which case the beer is supposed to be ingested at room temperature).

The RYNO Is The Dumbest Thing Since Segways One-Upped The Big Mac

2 Comments

If the rampant use of the overpriced Segway was not enough to shake rotund members of western society into exercising practices (that includes actually walking on two legs when you are able), there is now a bastardization out there with one wheel: the RYNO.

RYNO-with-rider

How does a $5300 (starting price) sound for a RYNO?

That is competitive with Segway pricing, but you have the benefit of sitting down, instead of standing like a silly looking tourist would while on a Segway traversing the myriad crosstown sights in Washington D.C.

If you are going to battle with Tyrion Lannister in a winter-long Game of Thrones, then you had better be equipped with an armored warrior that is equal in both cunning and size, as is the kitten Bella of Brash donning Cat Battle Armor.

That’s right, I know of a ruthless and deadly kitty named Bella.

The Lannisters pay their debts until catnip is involved; Golden Dragons pale in comparison to Tywin Lannister’s lust for catnip.

VMX Project: Visual Artificial Intelligence for the Masses

Post a Comment

Imagine going into the kitchen at six in the morning, on a bleary Monday, and plodding heavy steps over to your trusty coffeemaker and having the Keurig see you enter its line of sight, recognize you, and ask, “Would you like coffee, Dave?”

“Yes, damn it, I’m standing in front of you because I want coffee,” says Dave.

And then the machine-turned-robot (via its software) acts and pours you a cup of caffeinated deliciousness.

This is not science fiction, folks. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is coming to the masses.
