  • Good shots of the Samsung i900 finally surface

    While the Samsung i900 was announced almost a month and a half ago, every shot of the handset released thus far has been crap. The best shot of it was a black and white mock up, watermarked to the point of insanity. Chinese news site managed to get a hands on with the device, and they were nice enough to bring back some visuals. The i900 is Samsung’s newest Windows… Read More

  • Help-Key: Use Talisman, Squid, Mogrify and this code to really mess with your Wi-Fi stealing neighbors

    [photopress:eback.jpg,full,center] It’s tempting, isn’t it? You know you just really want to do this. And I can’t think of a reason why not. I’m considering it for my home router, as it and my MacBook Pro haven’t been getting along since the last Leopard update, but the prudent would instead side on the secure side and encrypt their network.

  • Macword 2008: MacBook Air image gallery, redux

    The good people at Apple were wise enough to let me have a few moments with their new MacBook Air, and I fell in love.

  • Google Sort of Enables Face Recognition When Searching Images

    The things that Google comes up with are pretty scary. The Street View on Google Maps is pretty cool, but it’s starting to feel a lot like Big Brother around here. It appears that when searching for images you now have the ability to get pictures of just faces by adding this tid-bit to your search, “&imgtype=face”. Voila, stalking on the internet has gotten that much easier. Read More

  • Cellblock: Fast Video and Image Vlogging

    I’m actually quite intrigued by this simply because it could be a great way to put out “breaking news” at shows or events. This is nothing new: you take some video or an image and it pops up in a Cellblock window almost immediately after sending, without transcoding or other nastiness. The service uses a standard email address – presumably you could just email content… Read More
