iPhone Nano and iPhone5 Rumors

iPhone Nano Mockup Design: Apple’s Got Balls After All

We’ve all been reading about the iPhone Nano rumors for a while. Since it’s referred to as the “cheaper version” of the iPhone, I thought the rumors were surely that, just rumors. After all, I distinctly remember Steve Jobs saying, “We don’t ship junk.“  Apple is known for being sexy, and there is nothing sexy about being smaller and cheaper. However, now that the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg and a few other large, reputable sources are jumping on the bandwagon, I’m starting to pay attention. ...

Custom Made Lego Pixel Table

Turn A Boring IKEA Table Into A Kick Ass Lego Table

I stopped shopping at IKEA years ago. Their furniture is kind of like Ramen Noodles. It is fabulously awesome during a certain phase of life, but after that, it’s over. However, this super duper Lego table made from a boring, plain looking IKEA table might be enough to inspire me to give that store a chance again. Quentin, the man behind TOKI WOKI, bought this IKEA table and turned it into what you see below. What an incredible transformation and geektastic interior design! The first ...

Architecture Slide: Another Reason To Stay Young Forever

Around a couple years ago, we started seeing posts and articles on pretty much every blog and website about multinational companies and their offices springing up like wildflowers.  We got grand tours in either images or video on Google, Digg, Facebook and even Twitter.  It’s insanely inspirational to watch these bright minds have such a creative and playful work environment where it is encouraged to play.  I have always believed that our best ideas come when we’re in a state of play.  This pretty much ...

A New Tasty Snack: Crunchy Oven Baked Tarantulas

When I was younger, I had the unpleasant experience of swallowing a bug.  I must say, it was gross!  Imagine the feeling of biting into one and feeling the crunch of its hairy legs in your mouth.  Ewwwww!  That was a long time ago, and even now when I think about it, it gives me goosebumps.  I have watched a lot of shows that feature people and chefs who actually enjoy eating and preparing exotic, unusual foods. These exotic foods can include insects, worms, live ...

Edible Giant Toasted Ants!

Hungry? Try Edible Giant Toasted Ants!

When I was in Bangkok, Thailand a couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to experience their wonderful and exciting culture.  One thing that was quite amazing was that we saw a lot of vendors who were selling fried insects.  I stopped by one of the carts to see what was being served.  There were huge grasshoppers on a stick, and other bugs that were fried to a crisp.  I am not a picky eater, but I was not brave enough or adventurous enough ...

Write an article using QuietWrite

Write A Note Or Article Easily With QuietWrite

I like writing when I am at home and everything is quiet, and I can think.  I just grab something cold to drink, jump on my bed, open my computer, and write.  When the inspiration is flowing, I can write for hours.  However, there are occasions when we want to step out of the house, take a short walk, go to a coffee shop, grab a good cup of coffee, and write till our heart’s desire. There are times when an inspiration may hit you, ...

Consumed: One Man’s Beautifully Visual Diary Of Food

Many people, especially in the United States where I live, have at some point reached a day in their lives when they decided they needed to lose a few pounds. The next step in the thought process is, “How will I do that?” Somewhere along the way we’ve probably read or had someone tell us that it’s a good idea to keep a food diary. By writing down every single crumb of food that goes into our mouths, we can better understand the quantity that ...

Stats On Being A Slacker

Are You Secretly A Slacker? [Infographic]

Today I read something that someone sarcastically wrote in the news that read, “Americans are just a bunch of slackers.” I paused for a moment to think about that statement. Why would someone write that? Is it possible there is an element of truth to it? Nah… I wrote an article last month called How Lazy Are We At Work?; however, I realized today after I thought about it more that there is a difference between being lazy and being a slacker. Being lazy, according ...

The Plant Whisperer: Makes Your Plants Talk To You

If you are a geek, you can definitely get your geek on in this article for sure! The stuff we write on Bit Rebels about plants really makes them seem more like pets to me than plants. We already know that plants dig certain kinds of music, and they will grow faster if you play that music for them. We also know that plants can tweet. However, I did not know until today that our plants can talk to us too! Instructables member Jeff-o recently ...

How To: Shave Your Entire Head In 24 Seconds

There are some things in life that often make me joyously happy I’m a girl, and not a guy. Not having to shave my face is one of them. I don’t know how you guys do it, shaving the hairs on your face on a daily basis. I know what you are thinking, we have to shave our legs; however, if I nick my leg with the razor, I don’t have to walk around for an hour with a little piece of torn toilet paper ...

Secure Your Stuff: Top Hackable Passwords [Infographic]

It’s nothing new that we are all dependent on our passwords.  Without them, we wouldn’t have an Internet, or at least not all the different services we use every day.  Take Facebook for example, it’s a service used by 600 million people and growing fast.  If it was an open community with no passwords, it would be infinitely unsuccessful.  It would, as a matter of fact, just be a simple chat of sorts.  With a little bit of magic and a password, we’re able to ...
