iOS 5 Hidden Features Demo

The iOS 5 Hidden Features That Apple Didn’t Mention

The iOS 5 will be released to the public this fall, and I am one of the eager ones wanting to toy with it. The over 200 new features that are available in this update will certainly be cool to check out, and some of the things I am personally looking forward to harnessing the power of are the iCal and Mail updates. We have long been looking for a simple yet powerful solution to keep our schedules synced with each other here at Bit ...

Is Social Media Asking Overused

Social Media Asking: Our Newest Twitter & Facebook Habit

I consider myself to be a very tolerant person, so there are not very many things in social media that irritate me. Of course all the mafia family, twit validation and auto DMs immediately get deleted each day, but that’s not really annoying. It’s more like simple housekeeping. One thing I’ve noticed more and more though is people sending me tweets asking me to follow them back. The strange thing to me is that I go into Twitter every morning and follow back my new ...

Star Wars Corn Cob Holder

May The Fork Be With You: The Geek Way To Eat Corn

This little idea by Shed Simove was originally created to encourage kids to eat their corn. All I can say is, forget the kids; I want one of these for myself. This design is called Cornobi (as in Obi Wan Cornobi). As you can see, it’s corn on the cob transformed into a dangerously fun lightsaber. This design gets the award for the geekiest way to eat corn. I bet the corn even tastes better when it’s chomped off a lightsaber. Hey Shed, now can ...

Retrofied Cassette MP3 Player Design

World’s Coolest Nostalgic MP3 Player

Usually when things go out of style, geeks are really quick to retrofy them into new gadgets that we all can get some nostalgic memories from. They come in the form of stickers for iPhones, non-working items or just things that look and feel similar to what the original item used to express. However, there is an end to all things, especially technology as new technology of course takes over, and that’s something that all of us keep accepting. That retro feeling is definitely something ...

Jack Sparrow Steampunk Statue Design

Behold The Steampunk Jack Sparrow

The Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the most successful movies franchises ever to grace the silver screen. The latest movie, On Stranger Tides, has already earned almost 800 million dollars worldwide in its first 17 days. That’s quite a feat, and right in line with the other movies released in the series. The franchise itself might not reach Avatar status, but they are still the most successful movies Johnny Depp has ever made. There was talk about him not wanting to make another ...

World Mega Building Art Design

World Mega Art: Literally Painting The World

The world can be quite a gray place when the neighborhood you live in is composed of concrete buildings which don’t have much color. It might be odd to some people that some buildings still look like they are from back in the 60s. The reality of it is that buildings keep losing their appeal each year as new buildings spring up around them. Putting a vibrant color on an old house isn’t always the clear solution, and it can be quite costly if the ...

How To High Five Effectively

Don’t Be A Dork: Proper High Five Etiquette

On Friday, my Twitter friend @JessicaNorthey started a new series on her blog called Finger Candy High 5 Friday. According to her, “It’s a day and place to showcase people online who are doing great stuff in their respective communities and industries.” I’m all about promoting our social media colleagues and getting the word out about the amazing things they are doing, and I think this column is a creative way to do that. Her new series got me thinking about High Fives. I’ve noticed ...

iPhone In Jeans Pocket

How To: Get Rid Of iPhone Pocket Syndrome

A few decades ago, many people had “Pack-Of-Cigarettes Pocket Syndrome.” Remember that? These days, it’s “iPhone Pocket Syndrome.” I walk around with my iPhone in the back pocket of my jeans all the time. I also chomp gum with my mouth open and hardly ever wear shoes. Okay, maybe not, but since I live in the heart of the South, this isn’t as much of a problem for me. Here, we are somewhat expected to be a little fashion-backwards, so it’s no biggie; however, in ...

Epic Automated Lego Build Design

Epic Lego Construction Is All Automated

Any epic Lego build is signed, sealed and delivered with a touch of creativity and uniqueness embedded into it. It’s not always clear why something goes viral, or why some people get all excited checking out Lego builds. One thing is for sure, whenever there is a new epic Lego build uploaded to the Internet, we are definitely there to bring you the latest and greatest news about it. Of course, there won’t be any disappointment this time around either because I think I have ...

Nerf Gun Realistic Office War

Office Wars: The Nerf Gun Fight You Don’t Want To Join

It’s been quite a while since we’ve written anything about the awesomeness of Nerf guns. The last one I think was an article written by @AndySowards which totally got our readers off their butts to check out what the heck this whole religion is all about. There is actually a whole league going on with Nerf guns, and if you are into that, there are tons of videos about it on YouTube, but that’s not what we are going to talk about in this article. ...

Harry Potter Warner Logo Progression

Evolution Of The Warner Bros. Logo In Harry Potter

I think it’s safe to say that Harry Potter has taken the world by storm. The books made J.K.Rowling the first author ever to earn over 1 billion dollars, and the movies have a lot to do with that of course. I think I watched the first movie at the theater, and I thought it was something extraordinary. However, I don’t think anyone could have known that it would become the phenomenon that it came to be. Each movie has its own mood, and a ...

United States Stereotypes Video

United States: 50 State Stereotypes [Humor]

This is hilarious to me because if you live in the United States, you know there are stereotypes that accompany each state. I’m not a fan of stereotypes when they refer to individual people because they can be hurtful and damaging, but I’m all over it when it refers to a whole State because it’s just so freaking funny. For example, what do you think of when you imagine Texas? I think of cowboy hats and line dancing. When I think of South Carolina, I ...

Summer Chilling Like A Cat

How Cats Cool Down During Hot Summer Days

Just a few days ago summer hit Sweden, and today it’s scorching hot over here. Cooling down is all about drinking a lot of water and staying in the shade. For some, the summer is a season they dread. I am of course talking about all the furry animals that simply hide from any direct sunlight during the hot days of summer. There is no real way for them to cool down, and I am sure they keep looking for water constantly. There are some ...

The Evolution of Graphic Design

The Evolution Of Graphic Design [Infographic]

As with almost anything nowadays, there is a history that goes back a long way when it comes to graphic design. Some people may think that this whole thing we call graphics is just something we made up when we first started using computers, and it became possible to draw simple pictures on them. Of course we have evolved since then, and the way we do things today is a lot more advanced than back then. Today while attending a graphic design degree program we ...
