Can Your iPhone Actually Make You A Happier Person?

Last year when it seemed like everyone except me was doing the iPhone 4 freak out, I was perfectly content with my Android phone. I had the best time on the weekends hacking and modding it just for fun. I was convinced that iPhone users were truly missing out by not experiencing what an Android smartphone had to offer. Then, earlier this month, the Verizon iPhone 4s were released. I ordered mine at 3am when they went on sale, and I received it in the mail two days later. Now ...

Eating Food Off The Floor

Dirty or Delicious: The 5-Second-Rule Investigated

If you have kids, you are probably familiar with the 5-second-rule. It’s a rule that claims that if you drop food on the floor, but pick it up within 5 seconds, it’s still safe and clean to eat. My 10 year old son lives by the 5-second-rule. If he didn’t, he wouldn’t eat much since he drops food all the time. Whether it’s potato chips, candy, a sandwich, popcorn, it doesn’t matter, if it hits the floor, he immediately picks it up while counting to ...

Pew Pew Pew XBox Game

Audio Gaming: Pew Pew Is Still Packing A Punch

I just love it when someone thinks outside the box for a change. We’re already seeing all of these first person shooters packed up on the shelves at the game store. Do we really need another game just like the sequel before it? I mean, sure, it has better graphics and a better or different story line, but the game mechanics are pretty much all the same over and over. What happened to the Pac-Man, Super Mario and Zaxxon ingenuity? We should still be able ...

Customized Mini Cooper Gaming Chair

A Mini Cooper Turned Into A Badass Gaming Chair

Playing games has become an art form, and we’re constantly trying to break the boundaries of the technology at hand.  We’re constantly trying to come up with new concepts that will astound the buyers and ultimately put the game on the top of the charts.  Doing that doesn’t always involve just coming up with a new type of game or the best graphics.  Even though it always tickles us when we see something that looks like the reality we’re living in, it can sometimes not ...

Byte Explaine In Twitter Data

How Big Is Your Byte: Twitter, Facebook And More In Bytes

As our world gets more and more complex, we tend to transfer that to the virtual world of ones and zeros.  As we clear up more space in the real world, the complexity of the things we virtualize becomes ever greater in size.  A great example of this are all the photos that millions of us take each and every day of our lives.  With the digital camera comes an ever growing number of photos being uploaded, and for each day that goes by, the ...

Twitter Inspired Fail Whale Designs

For Your Next Tweet Up: Twitter Inspired Beer Glasses

We have featured a lot of Twitter inspired designs, and one thing I’m noticing as time goes on is that they are getting more and more creative. It’s a really neat progression to watch. It seems artists and designers are growing as fast as the site itself. For example, it used to be that most Twitter designs incorporated that turquoise blue color, usually on cloth. I’m referring to that Twitter blue that we are all so familiar with. However, now we are seeing designs that ...

The Art of Tall Painting

Design: The Drippy Hypnotic Effects of Tall Painting

There are so many styles of painting that are popular now. We’ve written dozens of articles about different techniques; however, this is one I haven’t seen before. When I watch this, it kinda puts me in a trance.  When you think about it, it seems like such an obvious thing to try with paint. This style of painting is called Tall Painting. It’s where you pour paint over an object, and then do the same thing again and again with different colors of paint. The ...

Cartoon Characters in Famous Paintings

Mind Twisting Art: Cartoons Mixed Into Classic Paintings

There’s a cartoon world, and there’s a real world. Cartoons are supposed to stay in the cartoon world, don’t you think? Whenever I see them branch out into the real world, it kinda freaks me out, like my brain can’t handle it or something. When Richard wrote about these Disney characters portrayed as strippers, it skeeved me out a little. There’s just something about seeing those characters take it all off that’s just wrong. Ok, I admit the Tarzan was kinda cute, I’ve always had ...

Woman Arrested Over Cookie Fight

Woman Attacks Over Missing Girl Scout Cookies

This is so funny to me because I love Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and if mine came up missing, I might attack someone too. I mean, you just don’t mess with a person’s Thin Mints. She should have known better. Ok, maybe not, but I still can’t stop laughing over this story. Last Monday night a 31-year-old woman in Florida woke up to find her Thin Mints were missing. She marched right into her roommate’s bedroom and started accusing her of eating them. She ...

Handmade Cup Sleeves and Insulators

Geek Inspired Design: Cozy Coffee Cup Cuteness

I love hot coffee and tea. I also love being cozy. So when I found this little cup sleeve design called a “Cup Cozie,” I knew I had to write about it. This is the perfect little accessory for any geek like me who loves her daily afternoon trip to Starbucks. Each one of these insulators is hand embroidered. The fabric is brown on the outside and polka-dotted on the inside. Sew Tara, who has been very successful selling these in her Etsy Shop, creates ...

Coke Recipe Found In Newspaper

The Original Coca-Cola Recipe Revealed

There is a feud going on right now that not very many people know about, and it’s centered around the city I live in, Atlanta. This American Life claims to have found the original recipe for Coca-Cola. Coca-Cola says that the recipe is still safe and sound right here in Atlanta in a bank vault where it’s been hidden for 125 years. I’ve read both sides of the story. This American Life actually has compelling reasons to believe the recipe they found is the real ...

Playable Angry Birds Birthday Cake

Food Play: An Epic Playable Angry Birds Birthday Cake

How do you impress your kids these days?  I mean, not that I am much for spoiling just for the heck of it, but in a day and age when kids pretty much have everything they wish for, what can you do to make their one day of the year so much more special than it already is?  Well, it turns out there is a lot you can do.  And, if you thought that Angry Birds wouldn’t have anything to do with it, I can ...

Star Wars Influence On World

How Star Wars Changed The World [Infographic]

Many times we have mentioned here on Bit Rebels how Star Wars has changed the world.  There are more gizmos and gadgets then we really care to acknowledge that have come from those movies, and it’s not about to stop anytime soon.  We are inspired about a future full of robots, droids and gadgets that will make our living so much easier.  Having a clone that goes to work to fulfill your daily quota isn’t too far away some scientists and engineers say.  But why?  ...
