iPhone Personal Cooling System

Geek-Cred: Fake iPhone Doubles As Personal Fan

We’re never happy, are we? In the winter we write about how cold it is, and we blog about different ways to stay warm. In the summer we write about how hot it is, and we blog about different ways to stay cool. I guess that’s just human nature, right? It’s either that or we are a bunch of spoiled brats. :) Right now it’s approaching 100F degrees in Atlanta. It was 102F degrees the other day when I took this picture. We all come ...

Comic-Con Best Cosplay Costumes

The Best Cosplay From Comic-Con 2011

Everyone knows that Comic-Con isn’t about the cosplay, but at the same time, the cosplay is one of the coolest parts of the event. I’ve never been to Comic-Con, but I’ve read tons of articles about it. I’m always drawn to the cosplay pictures for some reason. The cosplay at that event is just so incredibly geeky that it makes me want to be a part of it all. If I went, I’d want to make a super amazing, sexy, stylish Ms. Pac-Man or Princess ...

Angry Birds and Mobile Games

Whoa! Mobile Gaming By The Numbers [Infographic]

When I read today that 53% of mobile gamers are female, I knew I had to write this article. It just goes to show that once again chicks rule! At the end of 2009 and beginning of 2010 we saw a shift in gaming (along with social media, shopping habits, and everything else pretty much) to being more mobile than ever before. Consumers suddenly had a new need, and that brilliantly timed with the release of Angry Birds, opened up the floodgates for mobile game ...

TaskRabbit iPhone iPad App

TaskRabbit: The iPhone App That Runs Errands For You

Since I usually work 12 hours each day or more, I like my off-time to be quality-time spent with the special people in my life. I don’t like to spend that time driving around in busy traffic running errands. I’ve always liked those services where I can pay someone a fee to do certain tasks that I might not have time to do myself. Of course, I have the menu for every restaurant in downtown Atlanta that delivers, and I call them often. There is ...

Desserts Made From Raw Meat

Sweet Meat: Ice Cream Desserts Made From Raw Meat

Uh oh… I already know my dear friend @VeganMeans is not going to like this post very much. When you look at the desserts below, what do you see? Do you see delicious sweet ice cream treats? You might be surprised by what these artistic pieces are truly made of. I have to admit; I eat meat, yet my stomach is turning a little bit from looking at these. Jamine Schuller created these unusual designs, and her inspiration was an experience she had with her ...

Facebook vs. Google Plus Infographic

Facebook vs. Google+: The Rise Of A Social Networking Giant

Once again, we’ll visit the giants to see what is going on. It doesn’t seem appropriate to start talking about Google+ as if it just started, even though it was opened up for everyone just a couple of weeks ago. And after they recently announced they had reached 20+ million users, it doesn’t seem like it could have escaped anyone that Google+ is the now a hyped player in town, in a good way of course. However, we still seem to ask ourselves the question ...

Eerie Wooden Sculpture Art Pieces

Freaky Anatomical Sculptures Created In Everyday Wood Items

We’re constantly faced with odd and interesting gadgets, items and situations throughout our every day lives. We’re somewhat used to some level of oddness, and it’s only when odd becomes weird that we actually start paying attention to the thing. Yeah, it might sound strange, but that’s how it is. For example, if you walked by a statue of a guy holding a baby over an edge that would of course catch your attention, right? Well, the next time you wouldn’t pay as much attention ...

Social Media Marketing Campaign Infographic

Why Using Social Media In Your Marketing Is Crucial [Infographic]

What some companies are reluctant to realize is that it’s absolutely crucial to use social media in your marketing if your product or service is aligned with anything that can be advertised or shared on the Internet. For example, if your company is a mining operation corporation then social media might not be the ultimate tool for you. However, if you have a coffee shop, a barber shop or just a corner store, it will most likely double your revenue several times over if you ...

Arc Touch Mouse By Microsoft

Arc Touch Mouse: A New Era Has Begun

I rarely write about anything that Microsoft does anymore, and I am kind of ashamed about that. Sure, they have the XBox, Kinect and all that, but I don’t necessarily think that’s Microsoft for some odd reason. When it comes to products from Microsoft, I have been off put by the lack of innovation they have showed us lately. Their gadgets just don’t match up with what I am looking for anymore. I don’t know why that is, and I want to strongly point out ...

Portal Gun Gangsta Rap Song

Portal 2 Now Has Its Own Rap Theme Song

It’s like the geek community just can’t get enough of the always emerging game spoofs. Whenever there is a hit on the shelves and people run to get their copy of the game, jesters start to brainstorm to come up with the next viral thing associated with it. We’ve seen it time and time again, and their ideas usually go viral and with good reason. Usually they take the essence of what they joke about and take it to a new level where we can ...

8 Million Dollar iPad 2

$8 Million Dollar iPad 2 Incorporates Dinosaur Bones

There isn’t a day that goes by when we don’t hear about some overly exclusive new technology or customization that only a few select people have the cash to be able to own. I remember a few months ago when we heard about someone purchasing a $1 million dollar iPhone 4, and that person decided not to use it. Sure, if it cost that much it’s probably not going down into your jeans pocket or crammed into your overly packed purse. It’s probably going to ...

VIZoSPHERE Twitter Topic Visualization Tool

VIZoSPHERE: Visualize Twitter Connections By Topic Influence

In the beginning, Twitter was a way to send each other small bursts of messages in 140 characters or less. It has since evolved into a whole ecosystem of intended uses where sharing information is as important as announcing your next marathon in front of the telly. Some people seem to think Twitter is just for one thing, and they draw up rule after rule about what it is all about and how it is supposed to be used. Well, no company or technology can ...

Cuum Trash Bin Garbage Eater

Next Gen Trash Bin: Sucks Up What’s On The Floor

We all know that trash is one of the main problems that we are going to have to find a better solution for in the future. Most everything else as far as waste goes is taken care of by someone or something, but the solution for trash isn’t as easy. As a matter of fact you are the one who has to carry the trash out in order to get rid of it. Most other things in our life like TV shows, water from the ...
