Wow, lovely bit of cool engineering :)
Check out the video....
When the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released, the internet lost its collective mind. Not only were people up in arms over the fac

Even more evidence that the Verge is hideously biased...

What an obscure but cleverly engineered device...
After World War II, people in the U.S. started buying vinyl and record players more than ever before. But over in West Germany, another music player took off: the Tefifon.

would be really cool recording new indie music on this kind of media! :) (and interesting that the player looks quite affordable at ebay)

Pranksters Put Up Fake ‘Shot on iPhone 6′ Ads Next to Real Apple Billboards

Apple recently launched a global advertising campaign touting the camera quality of the iPhone 6. As part of the campaign, the company put up billboards all over the world with its favorite photos captured by iPhone 6 users with the phone.

Two pranksters from the advertising industry recently decided to poke fun at the billboards by putting up their own fake “Shot on iPhone 6″ ads next to them.

Low Cost Single Board Computers Compared
An excellent detailed unbiased comparison between the four boards which covers lots of areas including Linux support, Kodi (XBMC) support, Community size, Android support, etc.

For the Raspberry Pi fans, its unfortunate it scores zero in the Android test but stick with it as this is just one tiny part of the review.

Summary of the iVerge review so you don't have to read it...

via +Carl Draper 
 
"The Apple Watch ... is kind of slow."

"Sometimes apps take forever to load, and sometimes third-party apps never really load at all. Sometimes it’s just unresponsive for a few seconds while it thinks and then it comes back."

"It’s also surprisingly heavy."

"[The] side button is extraordinarily confusing."

"In the first of many moments where the Watch felt underpowered, I found that the screen lit up a couple of ticks too slowly: I’d raise my wrist, wait a beat, and then the screen would turn on."

"Having a screen that constantly flips on and off is definitely behind the curve."

"There’s no particularly great digital face, and there’s no ability to load up your own watch faces or buy new ones from the store."

"There’s no master switch to turn all notifications on and off, which is a huge pain."

"By the end of each day, I was hyper-aware of how low the Apple Watch battery had gotten."

"You only get a charging cable, which is lame. For $700, you should a nice charging stand, like you get with the $249 Moto 360."

"There’s virtually nothing I can’t do faster or better with access to a laptop or a phone except perhaps check the time."

"There’s no question that the Apple Watch is the most capable smartwatch available today."

Aluminium Ion Battery
This looks like it could have potential
Bendable aluminum-ion batteries could replace the lithium-ion batteries currently in our devices, and be both longer-lasting and cheaper.

Classic computers in classic videos :)
The computer revolution didn't come into people's homes overnight. There was a long period when the public was still discovering all the things they could do if they owned a computer -- and this led to some truly outrageous TV ads. Check out the most hilarious and creative classic home computer ads ever made.
