Hunch.com Launches

For the past hour, I’ve been playing with Hunch.com, a new online service created by Flickr co-founder Caterina Fake. You essentially ask the site questions, take a little survey and get the answers you want. I found it pretty interesting and answering the questions on the homepage helps others gain knowledge about you. One of the neat parts is that ...

Twitter From Your Commodore 64

The above video shows a gentleman loading up a Commodore 64 with some software off an old-ass floppy disk. This C64 software is actually homebrew Twitter software used to send tweets. Believe it or not, you can actually tweet (albeit it very slowly) with it. It’s amazing how you can do so much with a C64 and the C64 Ethernet ...

iPhone 3.0 Tethering Hack

Oh man this is sweet. You see, this week, I got my hands on the GM copy of the iPhone 3.0 OS. I installed it, went “OK, cool”, went to revert and nearly bricked my iPhone. Somehow, two days later, it unbricked itself and went back to OS 3.0, which is what’s needed to rock this tethering hack. Here’s how ...

Robin Williams, Harrison Ford and Frogs

Nine times out of ten, when someone asks me what I consider important, I usually reply “beer” or “Cooler Ranch Doritos.” While those things are certainly an important aspect of life, I’ve got something a little funkier for you this time around. And to boot, it’s for a good cause. Everyone from Prince William to Robin Williams to Harrison Ford ...

China Demands PC Censorship

Dell, HP, Apple and plenty of other computer manufacturers are flipping a shit today. Know why? It’s because China is nothing but a pro-censorship, communist country that shelters its people from truth. Starting next month, all computers going into the country will have to contain software that filters websites that China deems “unhealthy.” News, video and plenty of other websites ...

Star Wars Celebrities: Yoda DeVito, Ewokchop and Elvis Solo

If Star Wars was reproduced as a modern parody, who would be cast in the hilariously sacrilegious resulting film? Photoshop contest headquarters Worth1000.com has it covered with their Celebrity Star Wars contest. My three favorites are Yoda DeVito, Ewokchop and Elvis Solo. Lambchop just looks so much cuddlier as an Ewok!

Microsoft Launches Bing Search Engine

Alright, alright. Look, I’d love to bash Microsoft’s latest attempt at search but the truth of the matter is that I can’t. Bing is wonderful. Know why? Live video preview. If you move your mouse over a video, it automatically starts playing so you can check out clips before you click them. Get what I’m saying? So all you have ...
