What Will People With iPads Think Of Next?

Nick Nicoludis :: Thursday, May 6th, 2010 4:20 pm

iPads are quickly becoming less of a technological innovation to be used as a giant iPone or a tiny MacBook, and more of jack-of-all-trades device. People are taking their iPads and doing all kinds of ridiculously silly things with them. If you haven’t seen it already there were the two dudes who used the iPad for their Dj routine, and now some other random skate-bros with an iPad and apparently no regard for how much they cost, have made theirs into a skateboard; ultimately destroying it in about 3 seconds.

Show and Tell: Gizmodo Finds Lost iPhone 4G

Shannon Hassett :: Monday, April 19th, 2010 11:15 am

Imagine you work for Apple. You have one of the coolest jobs on Earth helping to design new iPhones, which means you’ve got some serious smarts and tech savvy to match. Possessing genius levels of either quality usually spells disaster as far as common sense is concerned, however, so it was easier to believe than one would think when Gizmodo published their little lost and found this morning.

Apparently a next generation iPhone was found in a bar in Redwood City, California, disguised to look like a 3GS but disassembled to reveal some significant upgrades. Gizmodo was very open about the sketchy nature of the whole situation, but when Daring Fireball‘s (and super Apple-connected) John Gruber confirmed that the company had reported an iPhone prototype had gone missing, things got a whole lot more legitimate.

What is technology without innovation? Further, where would the Internet/technology be without sex? It’s not hard to imagine that some of the people propelling the Internet’s popularity are in some way connected to the porn/smut business. I mean, when you were 12 or 13 what took up most of your Internet time? Let me guess: talking on AIM to your buds, trying to download Rancid/Blink-182/Saves the Day/any other tween/pre-teen meme and finally, trying to find porn and not getting caught. Now, Apple has taken all the fun out of technology by banning any app they deem to have adult/objectionable content. MORE »

Mad TV Sort of Predicts the Future, Apple Continues to Take Over the World

Amy Laviero :: Friday, February 5th, 2010 1:15 pm

I don’t think Mad TV, the red-headed stepchild of sketch comedies, has ever been funny. I never understood Ms. Swan and thought Stewart was just plain creepy. Regardless, it seems as though it inadvertently predicted the future back in ’05 with the i-Pad sketch. MORE »
