http://everynoise.com/ is an algorithmically-generated, readability-adjusted scatter-plot of the musical genre-space, based on data tracked and analyzed for 1374 genres by The Echo Nest.

You can click any item for a sample, or explore the list of artists that make up that grouping. It's a mixture of impressive and useful, and as addictive as wikipedia.

Does anyone use Amazon storage? What is their sync client like? I find that to be the achilles heel of most cloud based storage products.
Watch out Dropbox, Amazon's coming at you with a new cloud storage plan that's ridiculously cheap. You can now store an unlimited number of files in the cloud for $60 a year. That's five bucks a month for everything.

I'm not aware of any amazon sync services, I think they only provide the API, but there are quite a few 3rd parties who leverage S3 Buckets to deliver backup solutions from open source desktop apps all the way to end-to-end services. Search for 'amazon s3 backup'.

Just came across this 1930's tutorial on how differentials work -- my kids were asking me to explain it, I found this, and now I understand it better than I ever have before. (Skip the first two minutes unless you really like motorcycle trick riding.)

The acrobatics the man and woman do at the end of the video look insanely dangerous; if either one of them slipped and fell in front of the wheel they were running on, they would be run over!

Very slick!
LiquiGlide has found a way to make the interiors of some bottles permanently wet and slippery. That keeps substances like ketchup from sticking inside.

Interesting. That sounds like a new spin on the concept. Pretty clever :)

I don't trust the use of the word edible. The FDA will clear just about anything that doesn't make you drop dead instantly.

Incredible.
 
Amazing setup with dominoes here -- and the ending reminds me of wallace and gromit :)

However abhorrent murder is, we really need to stop convicting on circumstantial evidence, regardless of how many convictions that prevents; the alternative is far, far, worse.
Doctors and engineers have challenged the science behind Shaken Baby Syndrome for more than a decade, but the disputed diagnosis is still being used to help build murder and abuse cases nationwide. The Washington Post, in an investigation with journalists at Northwestern University's Medill Justice Project, for the first time identified 200 criminal cases in 47 states that ended when charges were dropped or dismissed, defendants were found not gu...

That moment, when after spending an hour refactoring your prototype code and pulling your hair out, you realize you checked “prevent this page from creating additional dialogs” a few days ago and are using alerts to debug your code.

+Fergal Daly it's amusing, I've done it for so long I now get surprised at the other way. I sit there shaking my fist at the computer wondering why it won't run and thinking "none of the parts I tested need that code path, don't freak out about it little computer"

An ingenious player worked out how to make a single turn in Hearthstone take 40 hours to complete [as I post this it's over 6 hours into playing out over live streamed Twitch].

For a game which enforces a 90 second turn timer that's pretty amusing.

Well put. Benjamin Franklin is often quoted on that particular anecdote.
