I'm Watch

Now I'm sure everyone is thinking, Mass, we've all seen this before, an iPod attached to a watch strap. Yawn how boring, but this isn't an iPod though, it's actually the i'm watch , a device that may one day change the way we communicate. By connecting via bluetooth to you're smartphone the i'm watch allows you to interact with application like facebook, twitter, email, instant/text messaging, and voice calls on you're wrist.  Available in 7 colors the i'm color version of the i'm watch retails for about $420(CDN) which is the cheapest version of the i'm watch.  Like I just mentioned, the i'm watch comes in different versions and a more impressive versions is the i'm titanium. The $700(CDN) i'm titanium features a more elegant and durable titanium face, instead of the aluminum face of the i'm color. Although impressive, both in appearance and price tag, the i'm titanium pales in comparison to the i'm jewels line of i&#

Happy Halloween 2011

 With Halloween coming to an end, well soon enough anyways, we're left with a few thoughts to ponder.  The first most obvious is... What do I do with all this left over candy? LOL (Get fat people!) No, no, I'm sure left over candy is not much of a problem. I'm talking about those pumpkins? So, if you're pumpkin has survived Halloween night without being stolen or smashed to pieces by punk a*s kids, then you're probably thinking about throwing it out.  Before you do that, why not consider putting it to good use by composting. If composting isn't for you, I'm sure you won't have to go far to find local communities willing to help out. Just do a quick GOOGLE search for 'Pumpkin Recycling' and see what's available for your area. By: pilsbury_girl

Gigabyte Sucks

I'm sure many might be wondering what Gigabyte has done to get on my bad side, and the problem here isn't what they've done, it's more what they refuse to do...  It all started about a month ago, when I was updating the computers in my office. I was moving from a dual core computer to a quad core computer, and was thinking... this old dual core still has a few good mile left. So, rather than retiring it to the land fill, I contemplated re-purposing it. Hmmm, what are my options... I could upgrade my arcade machine (yawn!), create a Linux backup server (better), or create a (H)ome (T)heatre (P)ersonal (C)omputer (now that would be cool). I'm already running a 7 terabyte windows home server, so as much as I would love toying with a Linux (AMAHI) server, I doubt it would get much use. A HTPC would be a somewhat challenging project, and would definitely be used more than a Linux server, and so the decision was made! First off I already knew from past experiences, that i

2012 Audi A7 'Papercraft'

See that guy in the above picture, well his name is Taras Lesko , and he created a miniature version of the Audi A7 out of paper. Yup, paper, 285 sheets of it to be exact. Taking him over 245 hours to complete the project, and wouldn't you know it, we have a time lapse video of the process... Via - Snotr By: Mass

Ad: Vodol

Not 100% sure what Vodol is, but I'm going to go out on a limb, and say it's some sort of foot ointment. My guess is that it's got something to do with athlete's foot, so if anyone knows for sure, let me know. Until then check out their latest ad campaign, it's pretty good.

Skull Cufflinks

Once upon a time you had to be a pirate, and more recently a hardcore biker to pull off wearing skull jewellery. Now even the king of polo is trading in his mallet to get in on the skull jewellery craze. Developed under the Purple Label brand of Ralph Lauren comes these uniquely designed cufflinks made from white gold and diamonds. The design features a moving jaw bone, that hides the diamond eyes when closed and exposes them when open. No longer will you need to fly the Jolly Roger, because I'm sure this $10,000(US) price tag is enough to scare off most people. Via - Uncrate By: Mass
