5 Online Tools & Gadgets For Those Far Away From Home!

It has been almost a month now that I have been away from home.  For me, home is Manila, Philippines, but right now my temporary home is in Cincinnati, Ohio.  I must say, being far away from home, if you are close to your family, can be hard if communication is difficult.  I am glad that I left home at a time when technology is available.  I am pretty close to my family, we always used to go out and spend a lot of time ...

Social Media History Before Twitter

The Social Media World Before Twitter And Facebook [Infographic]

A world without Twitter or Facebook seems distant and almost non existent. Yet still there was a time, long ago (hrmm..), when they didn’t exist. As a matter of fact, Facebook didn’t even exist 8 years ago and Twitter even less. So, if you feel like you’ve been using Twitter or Facebook for ages, well then you’re wrong. Some say Social Media was invented at the same time as the Internet was. The reason why is because at that point we all got a forum ...

Star Wars Retold In Iconscope

Star Wars: A New Hope Retold In 32 Icons

There are many ways to explain the story of Star Wars, and no matter how you tell it, people are always going to be fascinated by the science fiction world. I think I have seen everything from YouTube clips of clueless people trying to tell the story of Star Wars, to complete pocket comic books retelling it. I always enjoy the way people see this huge adventure differently. The characters seem to have their own individual lives in a galaxy far far away, for real ...

Freeway Fender Bender Informative Infographic

Why Do Freeways Come To A Stop? [Infographic]

I think I speak for pretty much everyone when I say that sometimes when you’re on your way home from work, and you’re taking the freeway, you have more than often found yourself in the middle of a fender bender traffic situation.  Not only is it heavily time consuming, but the annoyance about not knowing why traffic suddenly came to a halt when it was so smooth just a few minutes before can be unbearable.  What do you do while you’re waiting for the funnel ...

Etch-A-Sketch Controlled Computer Hack

The Geeky Etch-A-Sketch Computer

Martin over at NortHACKton gets the ultimate geek award this week for sure with his etch-a-sketch computer hybrid. According to his website, after seeing tons of computer controlled etch-a-sketches, he decided to create the opposite… an etch-a-sketch controlled computer. I grew up playing with an etch-a-sketch. I kept one in the backseat of my parent’s car to play with during long drives to Grandma’s house. I still have an etch-a-sketch today. They are like Rubik’s Cubes and Legos, they are just as much fun for ...

Lego Plastic Skull Doorbell

How To: Make A Super Sweet Plastic Skull Doorbell

Skull art has always been popular. A quick Google search will reveal a ton of really cool art inspired by skulls; however, this is the cutest little skull design I’ve seen in a long time. I’d like to make one of these myself. Maybe it would scare away all the annoying people that come to my door during the day and interrupt my Twitter time. I could attach a circuit connected to some juice so they would be electrically shocked when they press the skull ...

Paper Airplanes With Memory Cards

Project Space Planes: Geeky Paper Airplanes Fall From Space

What a brilliant promotion sponsored by Samsung. 100 geeky paper airplanes were recently dropped to the earth from space. They were geeky because each folded airplane contained a Samsung SD Memory Card with a random message from a random person on it. What was the purpose of the Project Space Planes promotion? Well, of course to create a buzz, but also to prove how strong these memory cards truly are. The video below shows the launch, and it looks like it was so much fun! ...

Keyboard Cell Phone Concept Idea

Keyboard Phone: New Revolutionary Concept Cell Phone

The way we picture a cell phone has become something of a hybrid of many gadgets.  The main theme that stands out is of course the touch screen and the available apps that you can use to super charge your phone.  New functions and features can be downloaded within seconds, and at the end of the day, you could have an all new cell phone.  This is true at least if you measure it by the number and types of features it has.  However, the ...

Birth Population Statistics For America

I Love Stats: Birth Rate Statistics For The USA [Infographic]

Ever since I watched Hans Rosling’s “The Joy of Stats,” I’ve been thinking more about our world statistics and population. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. It’s a four-minute augmented reality presentation plotting 120,000 statistics from 200 countries over the past 200 years. Back in 1810, which is where his presentation begins, most people were poor and sick. The life expectancy was below age 40. Of course, after the Industrial Revolution, things improved. Despite WWI and The Great Depression, things continued to ...

Complete Comparison Brand Tablet Infographic

Tablet Wars: A Complete Brand Comparison [Infographic]

While everyone is talking about the next big thing, there is a silent but very public war going on.  It’s been called the “Tablet War.”  Every developer is claiming that their tablet is the one superior to all the others, and they showcase features that solidify their claims.  However, it is not always an easy comparison.  You have a whole range of factors to put into the equation, and still, it all boils down to what the user expects and is satisfied with.  Ever since ...

Be Strong, Know Your Strengths!

5 Reasons Why Knowing Your Strengths Is Important!

Have you ever taken a test to actually determine your strengths and your weaknesses?  I remember as a part of our planning sessions at work, we were asked to make a SWOT analysis before making any recommendations.  Have you had the chance to do that for your own business?  Even more importantly, have you ever really taken the time to find out what your strengths are? Some people I know always focus on their weakness rather than their strengths for some reason.  I am not ...

Soap And Cologne For Geeks

Smell Like A Geek: Two Geeky Scents To Start Your Day

When I first wake up in the morning and before I go to bed at night, I make sure I take my bath.  It always feels good to be clean and smelling really nice early in the morning and late at night.  It is natural for people to want to smell good and to be around other people who smell good.  There are so many things that people can do in order to smell fresh.  Some people spritz on cologne, others use perfume, and for ...

Star Trek Papercraft Movie Version

Star Trek: The 60 Second Papercraft Short Movie Version

Why is it that Star Wars fans and Star Trek fans don’t get along?  I mean, everyone knows that there are several billion galaxies out there and that each of those worlds can co-exist.  I mean, what’s all the fuss about?  Star Wars is nothing like Star Trek and vice versa.  It’s almost like if BMW people hated everyone driving a Audi.  It just doesn’t make sense.  We have covered a lot of Star Wars ground on Bit Rebels, but unfortunately, I can’t say we ...
