  • Hints of a Facebook Operating System In New Design

    It’s become a common trope to say that Facebook and Google are vying to become the operating system of the Internet. But there are some very clear hints of that in Facebook’s upcoming new design, which it just opened up to today in a developer sandbox.

  • Video: Weezer's latest is all about the YouTube

    Let me start by saying I’m one of the biggest Weezer fans in the world. Or was. Weezer is like that friend you’ve had for years who keeps stealing from you, and you know they do it, but they never fess up, but you keep being their friend because you know that deep down they might still be good inside. Or at least you hope they are. This is the new video for the first single of… Read More

  • Telectroscope 'telescope': From London, look at New York

    A new art installation in London and New York lets passersby look clear across the Atlantic. The Telectroscope, a 37 by 11-feet telescope of sorts, connects the two cities using fiber optic cable, with an HD camera on either end. If you’re in New York, looking through the Telectroscope shows you London, and vice-versa. Pretty cool, and much better than other New York public art… Read More

  • Protein[DS]: Now your DS is sorta like a turntable! Crazy!

    Another touchscreen DJ thing to point out, this time for the Nintendo DS. It’s called Protein[DS] and will apparently be released for your homebrew pleasure in a couple days. I think it’s more for kicks than a Godskitchen residency. One can dream, though, I suppose. Read More

  • Guitar Hero: Aerosmith spotted in the wild

    How I Met Your Mother is one of my favorite TV shows and this week’s episode featured Marshall shredding away at Guitar Hero, but not just any ole version of GH.

It’s not a leak or anything, but cool… Read More
