  • Funny/Not funny: Volvo's crash avoidance feature fails during demo


    Boy, I feel for Volvo right now. During this UK demonstration of the new S60’s collision avoidance system, something… went wrong. Nobody was hurt, luckily, but I get the feeling somebody’s paycheck is going to be hurting pretty soon. Apparently the engineer who prepped the car just messed up the batteries. Sure, this kind of things happens, but man, when you invite a… Read More

  • What Valve games will look like on Macs

    Oh har de har har, Alt Text. You think you’re soooo funny. The site posted a list of proposed changes to popular Valve games, including my fave, Half-Life 2: Half-Life 2
    In Half-Life 2, instead of picking ammo off the filthy ground like a common Windows user, you must go to an immaculate white Ammo Store where twentysomethings with fauxhawks will sell you immaculate white bullets… Read More

  • The haptic hoo-haa ultrasound trainer


    Dude. This is great. It’s essentially a haptic trans-hoo-haa ultrasound simulator that teaches doctors how to perform an internal examination using an ultrasound wand. The greatest thing is that it offers haptic feedback so you can tell how hard to push in various situations. If video games have taught me anything, your accuracy and speed increases when you use haptics! Read More

  • The best comment ever

    I knew we’d probably get plenty of comments on the iPad Review and I honestly enjoy the back and forth. But there’s one type of comment we always see and it basically says “Why is this on my browser?” Clearly, commenter Krugeri knows the answer: our commenters have been kidnapped by an international group of terrorists and are being forced to read reviews against… Read More

  • Remember the epic Phantom Menace review? Well, here's Attack of the Clones

    I’ve been watching this for about 40 minutes now (instead of dutifully posting it up like a good blogger). Stuck at home in a post-brunch coma? Here’s 90 minutes of spot-on commentary (and a few too many serial killer asides) on the movie we all wanted to redeem The Phantom Menace but ended up sucking pretty bad. I remember waiting in line to see it in the theater, and being… Read More

  • Copy our tablet for your iPad, will you? Well how do you like… this?


    You may recall the minor hullabaloo around the time of the iPad launch that Chinese company Great Long Brother had released a tablet well before Apples that shares a certain distinctive design. They threatened to sue Apple for mimicking their own P88, though it’d be clear to a purblind marmoset that the P88 was mimicking the iPhone. Well, things have taken a turn for the absurd. GLB… Read More

  • Why software costs so much: It's the packaging!

    Here’s a fairly egregious example of wasteful packaging sent by Quantum to a buddy of mine. The boxes they are unpacking contain Quantum’s licensing agreements, two single sheets of paper that were shipped in their own boxes, wrapped in bubble wrap, and contained in one main box also full of bubble wrap.
