Those who have pet dogs will love this new product. They are called Olive Super Poop Bags. It seems strange that conscientious dog owners pick up their dog’s poo (which is 100% biodegradable)…only to pop it into a plastic bag that will be with us for 100’s of years. Amazingly, US dogs produce enough waste to fill an 800-foot-tall football field every year and plastic bags can take over 100 years to decompose. Scooping all that poop into petroleum-based plastic bags leaches toxic chemicals as […]
There has been a ton of discussion around this and I can tell you that there is not much information about the storage capacity at Google but there are some interesting facts surfacing right now. First off, Google doesn’t have a centralized server somewhere with all the information on it. It’s broken up in “Server Farms”, 15 to be correct. All of these are placed around the world for faster and better secured than if everything would be storage at the very same place. What […]
We all know Google Earth version 5 (introduced in February of this year) is amazing. My favorite part is the separate globe of Mars. The maps are so high resolution; they will blow your mind if you haven’t seen them. It is a huge upgrade from the browser version of Google Mars. Another feature worth mentioning is the ocean view. This edition of Google Earth enables the user to dive into the ocean and explore underwater in 3D. Also, a plethora of new ocean data […]
There are a lot of C&C fans around the world, but I know some of these new kids to gaming probably werent even born when C&C Red Alert was first released. Â Red Alert really set the standard for frantic strategic battles, I remember playing C&C at work, one of my first network’ed multiplayer games – besides Quake – and never understanding how my friend was able to getÂ air planesÂ to bomb my stuff before I had even really set up base… its amazing how bad you […]

Found this very funny video that was set in the 1930’s. Do you have good Facebook manners? Timmy and Alice don’t. Watch their bad behavior to learn the dos and don’ts of Facebook breakups. Check out the language used its so retro. The entire video was shot in old style film effect. Its in Black and White and check out the computer. Very detailed it’s amazing.

Yup, you read it! But, let’s start from the beginning shall we. In 1993 a company named Space Marketing Inc. drew up plans to launch and deploy a 1 square kilometer big illuminated “Billboard” into space and Coca Cola was rumored to have the first ad on it which were going to be seen anywhere on earth at night time. The advertisement would be roughly the same size and brightness as the moon and was to be made out of sheets of “Mylar”. However, the […]
Iâ€™ve always been a huge fan of TiVo. Iâ€™ve upgraded the size of our TiVo hard drive twice, and we now have 523 hours of recording time in basic quality or 142 hours of best quality record time for all of the movies and shows we like to watch. But lately, I havenâ€™t been using our DVR as much. Iâ€™ve built something into our home theater system that has changed the way we watch TV. I connected my digital big screen television with an extra […]
Aether just sums up why I love indie games. Â Its because the people who make them are not far off from being either genius or taken away by men in white coats, Â I think this game ballances these two things perfectly. Stuck on earth a lonely boy longs to see more, and quite amazing finds a monster who he befriends! Now this monster has a long sticky touge which he can shoot out and swing from clouds and asteriods enabling him to travel through space. […]
Yes it’s da bomb literally, Bomb USB Memory “Plug and Play!” A metaphoric and conceptual object designed to be show on a desk or a work place not so much to carry around.

Your friends will surelyÂ have a blast if you give it to them as a gift.Â No date was given yet as to its release as the product is still in the conceptual phase.Â […]
Do you remember the cassette tapes? They were used before to store audio recording messages and music that is when the CDs, the mp3 and ipods were in style.Â Found some cool designs from ooomydesigns.com that transformed them into works of art with both function and form. Tribute to cassette tape, which kept usÂ company all through the 80’s and became a symbol of a generation. Taking advantage ofÂ its structural properties, a lamp/box has been created only by means of tying the tapes firmly […]
So I finally understand it. Why we all love Coca Cola so much. There has been many legends and rumors about the origins of the very addicting beverage. Everything from there being real cocaine in small amounts in the first “Original” Coca Cola to it being used as rust removal from the start. It’s even been rumored that it was used as medicine for a bad stomach etc. BUT, I think I cracked it…I think I actually cracked it. The mystery why we all love […]
â€œAre you sponge-worthy?â€ If you understand that question, then youâ€™ll love this article! Since 2009 marks the 20th anniversary of the first episode of Seinfeld, I thought it was only fitting to write an article to pay tribute to one of the best sitcoms ever created. I think I have every episode of Seinfeld memorized. Iâ€™ve watched them all over and over. If you are like me, Seinfeld isnâ€™t just a TV show, itâ€™s part of who you are. I can find a Seinfeld quote […]
If your life is anything like mine, your day is spent sitting in front of your computer almost all day long, with out taking much of a break. One thing leads to the next and before you know its, its 9pm. This is a typical life of most freelancers. Sitting all day long can take a toll on your health. I noticed a that my shoulders would hurt, my hand was in pain, I couldn’t read the words on my screen without getting a headache…. […]
