Do Women Really Talk More Than Men?

I talk a lot. I admit it. Not only do I talk a lot, I write a lot, I tweet a lot and I chit-chat on the phone a lot. I just communicate a lot. I’ve always heard that women talk more than men, and I assumed it was true. I mean, have you ever heard of a group of guys staying up all night talking like girls do? I didn’t think so. After I saw a tweet today that read, “Women speak about 7,000 ...

A Never Before Seen Look Inside An AT-AT Imperial Walker

Of all the things unleashed into the world, Star Wars is probably the one thing that keeps us wondering about  technology the most.  We see the gear, the vehicles, and the gizmos, but we never get to see the insides of them, at least not the really cool ones.  The Millennium Falcon is a good example of how we’re treated to some eye candy, yet it’s kind of obvious what it is all about.  However, what about all the other stuff in those movies that ...

Crush Notifier: Online Dating Steps It Up A Notch

With all the success of online dating, it’s evident that there are more people out there who want to find someone from their keyboard instead of meeting their lifetime love through more conventional ways.  It seems the reason could be that we’re more comfortable behind our screen and keyboard than we would be in front of that special person face-to-face.  It could also be that we’ve gotten so lazy that we’re finding other ways to make sure we won’t get our hearts broken if we actually were to present ourselves in ...

The Evolution Of Video Game Controllers [Infographic]

Ahh… video game controllers. If you are like a lot of geeks, you can graph your life based on what video games you played at the time. I remember being a little kid sitting in a bean bag chair in the cold basement of my parent’s house for hours playing Frogger with a simple joystick controller. I thought I was hot stuff to have an Atari. The graphics were horrible and completely blurry. The only noises it made during the game were a few beeps ...

Harry Potter Written On A Bathroom Stall Wall

This story has been out for about a week. I saw it the day it started circulating the Internet, but I didn’t write about it then because there simply weren’t enough details for me. Since then, I’ve been following the progress, and it’s very interesting how it’s all unfolded. At first, Harry Potter fans were geekiliciously excited about seeing a picture of the first chapter of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone written on a bathroom stall wall. Nobody knew where the bathroom stall was ...

Artistic Inspiration: Laptops Created From Wood Scraps

It seems like everyday there are new articles published with ways we can help to save our environment. It’s so important that we all make an effort to do what we can to be nice to our planet, after all, for the moment, it’s the only place we have to live. One thing I’ve learned and that we’ve written about over and over again on Bit Rebels is that even doing small things that seemingly have no effect can add up to a big thing ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
